New Blog, New Haircut, New Me?

Well welcome to my little corner of the universe, formerly known as and now known as

I’m not going to lie, it was a pain in the you know what to try and get this new blog set up. My sister Kayla usually does most of the heavy lifting when it comes to IT stuff but this website, this domain, everything you see was put up by me!

If you were signed up for my original newsletter that comes out each Thursday with the week’s blog posts, that will still come as scheduled (again that was a nightmare to switch over too). If you’d like to subscribe to my newsletter, here is the link – I’m almost to 500 subscribers!

I’m starting to feel like myself again. I’ve mentioned before I had a REALLY rough time with my mental health starting last June, for a long time it felt like nothing was going to help.

Then the whole blog thing, losing my domain name and website and 5 years of blog posts really was a double whammy. I do have access to some/most of my blog posts through something called the way back machine so I can still revisit the posts for now.

I’ll be taking and resharing some as time goes on, maybe do some blasts from the past like my mom does on her blog.

In other news, I chopped my hair! In the best way! I’ve wanted to go short for so long but was afraid I was going to regret it. Whaddyah think? I think it is fitting for how much better I’m feeling. Definitely needed freshen things up a bit.

Anywho, that’s all I have for today. Thanks for checking in, I’ll keep on working on this darn site of mine. I’m just kicking myself for ever cursing it in the first place. What’s that they say, be careful what you wish for? *sigh*

    Love the new cut, makes your face shine. Glad to have you back and I look forward to reading your blog. I moved to Wisconsin in July to be closer to my mom, who lived in Osage. I’m glad we made the move, being closer to family has been nice. Our daughter welcomed us to Stevens Point. I’m sorry you were having such a difficult time with your mental health, it can be so lonely. Glad you are doing better. I look forward to the new blog, after all your hard work getting it up and running.

    Love the new you look! I’m so glad you could see some of your old posts. Maybe you can have a thumb drive near by and get in the habit of moving every new blog on to it right after you write it. The blog is the electronic journal. It would be devastating to loose another one. I’m glad you’re back and feeling good. Love your smile!
