Oh How I Hate GOODBYES!! *Sniff* *Sniff*

Hi guys!  

Courtney, One Bored Mommy here...

I started this blog in 2009, after a cross country move from California to Connecticut!  I had some major cabin fever, was feeling lonely (and depressed) and needed some way to use some of my talents (and past PR experience) to help spread the word about some great products that families may or may not hear about on their own!  

I've truly loved every second of it!  The picture taking (I've taken some awesome pictures), the product reviews (oh my...the fun things we've reviewed), the writings (me, sharing with you, my feelings), the publishing (yes, I've even been quoted in magazines), the networking, the television appearances (you guys know I loved that) and the compliments on a job well done!  I've worked with some awesome PR companies, some wonderful  companies directly and some amazing "start up" & "Mommy Owned" businesses too!  It has been an amazing 4 1/2 years!  So many things our family & friends would have never been able to do, see or experience had this blog never existed!  

(And GOD gets all the credit for that!)

However, since last year, when our family moved back to California, and we began to process through some major life changes...priorities have changed a lot!  I am about to enter the work field again!  No longer a Stay At Home Mommy of four!  I'll now be a Single WORKING Mommy of four!  I will simply not be able to give this site (or the companies I love working with) enough time and dedication to continue doing the QUALITY product reviews I've been able to give in the past!  Plus, it's simply not fair to my kids, when I am not at home with every second will be THEIR TIME completely!

Therefore, I am so sad to have to say goodbye (*sniff *sniff), and I will be finishing out the final product reviews, as they arrive on my front porch, but One Bored Mommy is going to be signing off for now!  

It's time to focus on my new career!  
WHATEVER THAT MAY BE!!  Anyone hiring?
Time to give EVERY SECOND of my time to my kids that I can!  
Time to start a new chapter of One Bored Mommy's life, which obviously won't be boring EVER AGAIN (not that it ever really was)!

THANK YOU for always encouraging me!  
Always supporting me!  
Please be excited for me!
My readers are the best...and I mean that!  Especially if you've been here from the START!!  
Thank you for letting me be "Your One Bored Mommy"!

I have been following your blog since the very beginning and have loved every minute of it. I will miss One Bored Mommy but I completely understand your decision. You Are ONE AMAZING MOMMY & your kids are so blessed to have you. I wish you the very best in all that you do and I have no doubt that you will be a huge success in whatever career you pursue. Not everyone can manage the lives of 4 little people, cook, clean, run a super successful blog, encourage friends and even total strangers all while concealing her own pain and struggles from the world, with a big smile on her face and her faith intact. You are one of the strongest people that I know! Walk with confidence. God is obviously with you so then who can stand against you? Eventually all who try WILL fall! Keep fighting the good fight! You've Got This!
