Where the Magic Happens...

I've been doing some cyber spring cleaning on the ol' blog here. {The boy and I both contracted pinkeye}I accidentally deleted my old layout inadvertently; I'm technologically challenged to some degree. I'm sure my 6 year old will be proofing and publishing my posts in no time. But, in my defense, blogger and I have a love/hate relationship. I love to hate it. It's like a bad, bad puppy you can't train to do what you want. So my cyber spring cleaning list included getting my email inbox from 343 down to 15! Holla! {Why I write like that I don't know, I'm wearing a sweater set for goodness sake} I trimmed down the Google reader; I was following a lot of blogs. So friends if you haven't posted in the last 6 months-buh bye. Sad. Comeback. I myself admit the up keep of a blog can be daunting. Let's face it; about 90% of what I write is complete crap. But I love it, feeds my soul; saves a tree. Not changing the world here just putting my garbage on the corner, you want to sift through it, great; I'll bring you a glass of lemonade. I have definitely had my hiatus moments; moving, divorce, computer burnout, and a blog stalking ex-husband {more than likely because he's still madly in love with me and hanging on...my...every...word, creepy}. As I was tweaking my list I went to revisit some of my favorite blogs I haven't heard from in awhile, or because I missed nearly 100 posts during some sort of crisis or another. Turns out quite a few of them have moved to Word Press. Ooolaalaa, shiny. I have noticed this year some blogs I follow have grown outrageously huge. Wow! That takes effort, congratulations. Sadly, I've also noticed that some peeps have cracked under the pressure. That would be too much for me, there are a lot of negative Nellie’s out there. I think by now I have a few more than family following, and I am a single mom, so I'm not paying anyone off {wink}. I'm sure Google has misled the multitudes a time or two when searching "how to remove gum from shoe". Perhaps I should consider providing that tip in my header, don't want any haters {again, did I mention pearls too}. For my life I have huge aspirations, for my blog, not so much...it's my place for storytelling, tattling, venting, uh, rambling incoherently. Let's just say it's my new husband, but without the snarky comments. Perfect, I'll take it! Whatever you run away pull away from my blog whether it is inspiration, laughter, entertainment, advice, curiosity, relevancy, or where I might be at any given moment for stalking purposes, thank you for reading. Remember kids, if anything, I am here to make you feel normal.
