What a week! Whew! I had the bright idea of self hosting my blog so that I could customize it more, and boy what a project that was. I thought it was just a matter of switching hosts and adding a few things here and there. Oh no, switching the hosts was the easy part, picking a new theme and making the theme work out was the hard part. (Because of course I picked an advanced responsive theme instead a basic, easy theme). I was in technical difficulty hell! I couldn’t have done it without my friend The David (Webb) and I owe him big time. Thank you David for the millionth time! I also utilized Google a ton, what would I do without that?
It figures that the week I choose to do this is also the week of mayhem here at the house. It just seemed like stress was floating throughout the house in every nook and cranny. I don’t know if it was my extra attention on the blog stuff that trickled into every other thing or if it was just a coincidence, but I am ready to start anew. Broken dishwasher, kids extra clingy and fussy, no time to clean, 3 year old insomniac, hubby with an insane school load, and family drama to top it off. Woe is me? No, that’s silly, life is all about ebbs and flows. And I can appreciate some hardship and struggle. “Adversity is like a strong wind. It tears away from us all but the things that cannot be torn, so that we see ourselves as we really are. ~Arthur Golden, Memoirs of a Geisha“. “There’s a bit of magic in everything, and some loss to even things out. ~Lou Reed, “Magic and Loss”. I’ve read all the inspirational quotes.
Moving on and moving forward. I am excited for all the things coming up ahead. I have some neat guest bloggers lined up and some exciting things happening this summer. If anyone is interested in writing a post, please email me through my Contact page. I will be switching some things up with the blog, I won’t be posting as often and my theme days will be every other week instead of weekly. So, one week will have a Tunesday Tues-day and then the following week will have a Wordy Wednesday and so on. I have some freelance makeup jobs coming up that I have to prepare for and because I don’t have a ton of time to do things, I have to be time conscious. Everything seems to be falling into place accompanied by some madness along the way, but I’m just going with the flow and trying to keep up. I hope you all enjoy the new layout, let me know if you do and if you don’t…..you’ll get used to it.
