Anonymity, Damnit!

Someone visited this blog the other day and it shows that they found me by googling part of my old blog url. I didn’t know that it was connected to this blog in a way that it could be found! The whole point of starting this new one was to have the freedom to spill my guts without certain parties being privvy to my ramblings.

So, I’ve been googling myself (that just sounds wrong…) trying to see where else I show up on the internet. This is something I have done before (and haven’t gone blind, yet…). But things are showing up now from things I did two years ago that did NOT show up in google a year ago. That’s kind of scary.

When I was active on my old blog, I apparently signed up for every social blogger network that I could in order to drive traffic to my blog. I’m now suddenly finding myself in places I don’t remember ever being (and I was even sober…) and trying to delete these accounts. Some of them make that rather difficult to do! Like Technorati. I was able to unlink my blog, but I could not delete my profile or even change my name and e-mail.

So, I’m not so sure what to do now. Maybe I will need to move this to a new domain. What a pain. It’s not that I don’t want to be read, I just don’t want to be read by certain people.

I don’t know…I’m probably asking for too much.

(Yes, that really is a word…)

Oh, Blogosphere…How I Miss Thee!

Blogging was such a big part of my world for a couple of years. It helped me as I struggled through some heavy issues in my life. Then I had to abandon it for various reasons. I started this one as a fresh start as my life changed. Now I work full time and am single-parenting three kiddos. I haven’t really had the energy or brain-cell activity to blog.

But I’m starting to really miss it.

I try to fill the void by updating my Facebook status, but it’s just not the same! Some anecdotes are worthy of so much more than being crammed into a grey box on a social network. Am I right?!

So, let’s see if we can give this another go. Writing is pretty cathartic. Not only that, it really helps relieve pent-up emotions!

P.S. Holy Cow, I just noticed that it’s been almost a year to the date since my last post. Good Grief, Charlie Brown!

Those Minutes are Still Good!

Wouldn’t it be great if we could have roll-over minutes in real life?

There are so many moments that I have wasted dwelling on the past or fretting about the future. I didn’t really spend those moments being present in their allotted time.

Can I have them back, please?

Oh, yeah…I have the unlimited plan now!
I better take full advantage of that and appreciate every last nano-second.

“I Didn’t Go Further in Debt…

…I got A LOAN!!!”

That’s what Soon-to-be Ex defensively said to me when I expressed my concern about him buying a 2010 “bumblebee” sports car.

We are upside down on our mortgage and he is supposedly working to resolve that by paying down debts that he has incurred and negotiating with the mortgage company, claiming hardship circumstances. He has also told me that I should work more because he wants to pay less child support.

So, why can’t I be excited for him when he gets a thirty-something-thousand dollar dick-head car? He said he got a great deal! One that he couldn’t refuse!

Not a Newbie…Just a New Me

I have been blogging for a couple of years, but have found that I’ve outgrown my old format. I’ve changed. I’ve gone from a milspouse SAHM to a working single parent. My outlook has changed. My goals are different.

I’ve got a whole new attitude.

For me, no more trying to keep up with the mommy-blogging world. I shall not feel compelled to post Nor will I be obligated to visit everyone on my blogroll daily. And about all those stinkin’ memes…

You get my point.

I now reserve the right to use bad language. I have discovered that a well placed F-bomb now and again is very therapeutic. Especially when dealing with my soon-to-be ex.

The only person I promise not to offend on this blog is myself. All posts shall be purely for my own well-being and entertainment. I think I’m pretty clever and often hilarious. If there are others that enjoy what I have to say, that would be just dandy! I am open to new bloggy friends and value the old ones that might follow me over here.

In summary, I will be here posting what I want, when I want and how I want. And you can read it if you want. Comments are optional.

How liberating is that?
