It has been so much fun and I really do feel so honored that you took the time to watch our little video blogs :) I am sure that we will do a video here and there, and when we do, we will announce it on facebook & our blogs. I am sure all of you understand the juggling act that moms accomplish every day. Although I am very happily divorced :)...the responisbility of earning an income for my daughters and myself is an every day pressure. I often work 2 or 3 jobs in one day to keep the ends meeting - do not misunderstand me; I feel blessed to be offered work, and work that I often can do on flexible days/hours. Since doing the videos did not pay- I often had to pass on participating so I could go work. But..the videos take a toll and I feel so much guilt over not helping Donna and Leah edit/post/manage the blog and pulling my 1/3 of the weight. I had considered the possiblilty of the 3 of us doing a last video together, but I think it would be too hard, so I never even suggested it. I will miss the videos, but we will carry on via blog/facebook :) cheers! Johanna
