I’ve blogged for almost 20 years now. Documenting my families ups and downs and chatting with smart people about the events of the day is part of the fabric of my life. I’ve blogged all through various family crises, while juggling various jobs. But now, I’ve hit a snag.

I’m considered running for our town’s Board of Education. Another local parent and I are holding meetings with residents to decide if this is the right move for us.

At the same time, I am currently assessing whether I can continue writing about politics, schools, and life on my newsletters, blogs, and in mainstream publications, while maintaining an elected position in my community. I am going to have to redraw some lines, and while I figure out how to do that, I better keep a little quiet.

Love you guys a lot, but I have to take a two-week hiatus. Be well.
