At first, I wasn't going to blog anyplace. Then I realized what I'd be losing if I didn't. First off, there's the title of my original Blogstream blog. It was chosen when I started blogging on April 26, 2006. One month after my Mom died. I'm not nearly as upset by the loss of the blog itself as I was with the loss of the title. Much of what kept me in Blogstream has changed, but the title is my tribute to my Mom and has a meaning to me that others might not fully understand. Honestly, sometimes I don't understand it either.
I created this blog in 2008, in anger actually. The original title was "Gawd Dang Lucky Frogs They Eat What Bugs Em". It was meant to be a place for me to vent my anger, and I had anger. I discovered that anger doesn't make for a great blog. Not that my Blogstream blog was all that great a blog. It had it's moments of lucidity amidst the insanity that was me.
I began to panic over losing the title two days after I knew that Blogstream would close on April 30. I wasn't sure what to do at first, but then I remembered this dormant blog. One whole post in 2010. I started thinking things through and decided that I would continue blogging here. With my Mom watching over me since I brought her title here.
This isn't going to be any greater a blog than version 1 was. I will make one serious change. There will be no political posts here. Those I will reserve for my friend Egaladeist's blog site TheTAZZone.com.
This blog will be a journey of sorts. Call it my journey into health and sanity. My sanity, which is something my grip on is tenuous some days. Posts will be about the things I'm learning from my doctor. The lifestyle changes I'm making. My job and the people I meet during the course of the day. My cat Butterscotch will be featured prominently, as always. Which reminds me that I want to go find the pink mouse in Hubby's undershorts post from my soon to be dead and gone blog. Hey! Strange things happen in this house, trust me on that.
Most of my favorite posts from Blogstream have been either archived as drafts, or posted here. I might repost them from time to time. They should be good for a few laughs on those days when life kicks me in the teeth. Who knows? If I keep blogging maybe I really will find that raindrops do make things beautiful. At least, on a blog they can't stop me from having some fun. I'm a girl, I just like fun.
