For some reason now that I am on my sabbatical and it represents such a dramatic upheaval of my life as it was known to me just 2 short months ago, every little change -including moving my blog from myspace/facebook/xanga- feels like such a dramatic undergoing.  Feels, a little weird.  Lonely even.  Not knowing if anyone will actually read this.  Starting over with new readers.  Sheesh.

I’ve contemplated that perhaps the fact that I don’t easily accept change perfectly counters the fact that I always have to have some big challenge in my life to be content so that I am always introducing change in my life which inevitably stresses me out for some time before I actually realize I’m happy about it.  So, in 3 months I promise you I will write something to the effect of, “oh, how I love wordpress & it’s the best thing that has ever happened to me,” though today I am sure I’ve made a huge mistake.

Next month, the hubby & I are throwing caution to the wind & trying to get preggo.  Despite all of the options in front of me that feel completely life-giving & just plain old fun what I really really really want is more kids.  (If your counting, 1 more of my own & like 3-4 adopted kids).  If I actually do get preggo, by 8 weeks in I’ll be exhausted unable to read my books, stay awake while commuting &/or studying ancient Greek & I will complain on my blog about how miserable I am being in the early stages of pregnancy while taking 6 classes and what I would like all of you to say to me then is:

shut up.

don’t mind this picture below.  I just needed a place to “put it.”  (ask me later) =)

    Hurray! Welcome to wordpress! I’m so excited you’re out in the big wide world of blogdom :o)

  • Kate

    Oh, I forgot to ask, can I link you from my blog? I always ask first.

    I happened to see in my facebook feed the notice about this blog change – wahoo! I hope you like it. I had the same hesitation when I made the switch and have absolutely loved WordPress for a myriad of reasons. :)

    Ran into someone this past weekend who spoke highly of you and your authentic realness. That clearly comes out in your blogging. Love it. :) Thanks for being an inspiration.

    I agree- it would feel weird to shift a blog spot, I’ve been thinking of doing the same thing too. Too many overlapping circles of people. Viva la wordpress- you are not alone!

  • bethy

    hahaha you’re hilarious…
    btw, what do you mean you’re gonna try to get preggo? how does that work? why not just call the stork? ;)
