Welcome to the New Home

May 18, 2014 sunday meanderings 23



Welcome to my new blog home!! Friday morning or afternoon I took a huge leap and left blogger, had my old blog imported here and signed up to self host my new site!!  I’ve got my own little domain name now and I’m slowly adding all kinds of bells, whistles and gadgets.  I’m very excited and I have Jenn and Michelle to thank for so much huge support.  Jenn helped me add all kinds of things and I’m happy to be settling in.  Nothing else changes really, just the look and where I call home, oh and my URL, so please hook this one up. I was more of a novice on my blog’s technical features, so now I’m learning RSS feed, plug ins and more.

This past week has been busy.  Two nights I was the driver for Nick and his friend for wresting practice in Orlando.  It’s not an awful drive, about 40 minutes.  One night I went to Panera and ate dinner and read my book, returned emails etc.  The second night I ran to Target for a few things and then to Starbucks.  I had a sweet tea and then I just enjoyed by book.  This seems to be a nice location, not TOO busy and the staff was so nice.

The house is much quieter with just Nick home.  Adrienne is adjusting to her new routine, but she’s not in love with her new job at EXPRESS.  The manager who did her training was sort of an ass, so she’s still looking for another job. My girls are now sharing an apartment with 2 others, and sharing a  bedroom til mid July when they move again.  Happily they are alive after a week…ha ha!

Yesterday I got up early, well 7:30 which is early for me and Kevin and I went to Orlando for breakfast and ran a few errands/shopping. We were home by 1:30 and it was nice to have the day ahead.  Hmmmmm maybe I should stop sleeping til 10am.

In books I had a good week.  I finished a couple in print and one in audio….look for that discussion tomorrow!

Tomorrow is our Anniversary–24 years!!  I can’t believe it some times.  I think I posted this same picture another year, but hey, that was us when we were young!!


Hoping you have a wonderful Sunday, and maybe a little time to sneak in reading time.

    Happy Anniversary, my dear! The new blog is looking good! You are going to pick up on all the “techie things” in no time.

    Happy anniversary! New blog looks great. 🙂 I don’t have the energy, nor do I feel like devoting the time, to go self-hosted but I do consider it sometimes.

    Happy Anniversary in advance! I keep considering moving to my own host at some point, but the amount of work involved makes me go bah. I cannot wait to see how your finished site is going to look. Woohoo! Good luck!
