Redecorating, Blog Style

I changed up the header (mom, dad, that picture thingy thing at the top) and would love to find a WordPress for Dummies book so I can play with the other stuff. Actually, I would love to take this to the world via WordPress, but financial priorities as they are, well, that will happen in time. Let me know what you think of the new header (here please, I could use a little comment love around these parts!).

And while I would love to add silly pictures of me with some of my friends, I kind of think they would like to stay behind the scenes. So you get me and the cat. Yep, that big grey furry thing up there is Wookie. Cute isn’t he? We have been together for almost 12 years now and I think we both like the arrangement.

As I have said before, I love to write. It seems like that was one of the few things I was really good at in high school and carried it through college all the way to present day. I don’t care about making money off of this, I only want to share with those nine readers or so (so stealing that from Gerry House) what happens in my daily life. At least what is fit to print. . .

So I am taking this time to really work on sprucing the place up, I have been at this for almost two years. In that time, I have learned how to edit myself (so I don’t completely embarrass myself), dated, had a relationship, my parents started reading and I have gotten some great/sweet comments from everyone I know personally that actually read here.

Sometimes blogging is hard to do, there is such a fine line with throwing thoughts out there and the reality of what you wrote standing in front of you. I am in uncharted territories in terms of putting my relationship with Chandler on here. Actually, we hit a huge bump in the road last month. The only thing I can say right now is I love him and what he has brought to my life, we talk but we are on a break. Cue the Rachel and Ross comparisons. . .

I have been using this time to find myself again and really think about what it is that I want out of life. Sure, I would like to get married and have children but sitting here right now I can finally say this: I am okay with being a single gal. Do I get sad sometimes about this rough patch? Yep but I also know that there is a reason why I am here and I am lucky to have the family and friends that I have.

I have also been outlining like mad for my little book project. It is a very bitter pill to swallow when you look at all your past failures in the love department. And I am having a time trying to get all of my memories down with regards to Bubba. Who coincidentally was very cool about the whole project. He just asked me to change his name, which I have already done, so no worries Bubba!

So there you have it, a few changes on the blog, in life and well everything. So give me a bit of blog love and leave a comment. This is one of the few times I will shamelessly beg for them! It is easy, painless and makes me smile when I do get one that doesn’t involve lose weight quick, make your penis bigger. . . gotta love spam!


What you see is what you get; I am a Nashville girl who is single, again. I use the blog to get my inner, tortured, wanna be writer angst out. One day I just may write a book. I have been stumbling through life for 43 years now, I love to cook, read and figure out more embarrassing ways I can either harm myself (thank you hula hoop of 2010 and the case of the thrown back) or just prove how inept I am at household chores and dieting. The people you read about on here are real but most have had their names changed to protect the innocent and not so innocent. And I really should make a list of them so I can remember! Enjoy, read, mock, laugh and comment, it really isn't difficult. Plus, I would prefer reading comments from real people as opposed to the weird spam comments I keep getting. Plus, I will always find the hardest path to follow and take that one, why would anyone want to take the easy way?!
