Thanks Alisa-- it feels good to be back. It feels much more natural now :) Was it hard to let go of what you'd built in the first blog? If I have a child someday, I don't know how much I'm willing to share (even though I'm a chronic over-sharer). I admire your change of focus to do whats right for you :) I appreciate you sharing that what I'm doing makes sense to you-- that you understand. It's probably weird to go against the system of growth support (like RSS) and break traditional rules and while I'm fine with it, its nice to know that it makes sense to others too. Thank you for supporting me

Thanks Hun!!! I get you-- it's hard to put yourself out there and if we're anything alike, it's so easy to fine tooth comb the whole thing to oblivion and really miss the enjoyment of it all. Your blog is so great though, keep it up and try to enjoy it in as many ways possible. Your soups constantly make me computer drool. Love you!! xo

I felt the same way too, I was just like "WHY!?". It's gotten a lot better with the changes I made and takes very little time now :) It's fun again!! Thanks for encouraging me Sue May :)

Totally! What movie is yours? I seem to have something like that from my breakups too.. usually they're songs, like 'Call it Off' by Tegan & Sara and 'Sun in an Empty Room' by The Weakerthans. Brings me right back to the painful after moments and months when I hear them. Hugs, LA

Hi Christine! Nice to hear from you :) Glad you like the new format. I defiantly feel less pressure and it takes very little time, so it's a major life improvement compared to before. If you want to get back into it, I highly recommend doing it the way that works for YOU :) xoxo

Roxy-- dog momma to the cutest dogs ever!! That's exactly how it is for Lollie... she's pretty happy in her kennel and sometimes, she even lays in it through the afternoon or evening when she could be anywhere in the house. I like being able to keep an eye on her when she's out because she's an eater and it's caused a couple of emergancy vet visits, and other times, tears when she ate two of my handmade mini-albums and other paper items. Now that she's a senior and likes to sleep a lot, it's more likely that will behave when I leave her out and it's worth trying :)

#1 I almost left Lola out of her kennel when I went to school today. She's been so good lately, and she passed a half hour trial this weekend while I went to the store, but it was too risky ;) She tends to eat paper and does laps when... Continue reading
