Here we are…

My brother moves fast when someone is threatening my safe haven!  I emailed him late last night and by the time my psychology seminar started at 7pm, this blog was up and running.

It looks the same, it will sound the same and the only difference will be the URL and the people I give it too.  I’m sure there were people I forgot to email with the new URL and I’m sure I’ll hear about it in the next few days when they realize that the old blog no longer exists.  I was on the phone with him when my awesome-sauce brother killed the old blog.

When I got home from work, I was feeling all pukey like and so I was laying on the couch when he called me to go over the new parameters of The Soda Stand.   I got off the phone with him and I felt good.  I actually felt my heart kind of crack when he said he was “dead.”   I started blogging 6 months after my best friend died in the hopes of expressing myself where I couldn’t in other areas.

Blogging has really become an integral part of who I am and how I live my life.  I would be lost without it and I’m just grateful I can continue doing it.  All password protected posts will have a new password.  Once I decide what that is, I will let ya know if you want it.

While I will continue expressing myself as openly as I ever have, there will be some details about my life that I will keep to myself and my closest friends via email.  There was nothing viewable publicly that could have gotten me fired (thank goodness for civil service and union contracts) but it could and was a little embarrassing to find that some had discovered my safe haven, ya know?  I’m weeding people out and I’m starting out with a smaller group of peeps.

There are no links on my FB page to this URL and it will remain that way.  If I gave you this URL, please do NOT pass it on to anyone without my permission.  While it’s a public blog and anyone can read it, I’d like to try to filter out the ones I don’t want, yanno?  Hmmm control issues much?  lol

Also, when I password protect a post and I give you that password, please don’t share the pw. Totally defeats my purpose of keeping some things private the way I need to feel safe right now.

Thanks for being here and reading my rambling words.  I appreciate you more than you know.

    I was going to say that it goes without saying that nothing would be shared – but, well, obviously it didn’t. LOL So – got it! 🙂

    People share passwords? I guess I should be shocked but you know…not much.

    I’m so glad to be here and wow, it really does look exactly the same!

    Miss Britt – well I know there are some people who would not even dream of sharing what I post and what not…but it’s always good to express how I’m feeling/thinking heehee

    Avitable – thank you! I am too. I almost gave it up!

    Hilly – yeah, unfortunately it happened a few times. It’s all good though. That’s karma that will come back on them, not me heehee

    I’m glad you are here too and I told you it would look the same! lol
