Sixteen Years

Fall flowers

Well, last week I renewed this domain for another year, so I figure I should really make an effort to get back into blogging. The entire summer went by with barely a word from me. I do have my reasons, but it’s time to get it together and start writing again. Monday marked my 16th anniversary of owning, can you believe it? I’ve been blogging longer than that, but still… Isn’t that crazy? I remember hand-coding. I remember when Blogger was in danger of going out of business! I remember Movable Type, pMachine, and GreyMatter. These new whipper-snapper bloggers probably don’t know what I am talking about, LOL!


So, what’s been going on with me? Oh, just life I guess. My husband lost his job in May, so things have been tight and stressful, but we’re getting through it. Luckily, I have my job at the library. It might not be much, but it definitely helps.

School has started for all of the kids, obviously. I have a 9th grader, a 6th grader, and a 2nd grader this year. The time does go by so fast!

I haven’t picked up my pointed pen in quite some time. With the kids home for the summer it was hard to find enought quiet time to sit and work on my calligraphy. I’ll get back to that soon enough, though. I am, however, crocheting. I hopped on the Caron Cakes trend and I’m almost finished with a C2C lap blanket! I love it so much, and I can’t wait for the cooler weather to hit so I can cozy up with it. I’m also working on a scarf using planned pooling. It’s magical how it works!

I still enjoy making planner stickers, though I have not uploaded any freebies in ages. Tuesday I got my new Erin Condren planner (and I loooove it!), so I’ll try to work on getting some printables up here for you.

Well, I suppose that’s good for a check-in for today. I do miss my little space on the web and ignoring it doesn’t help anything, so I’m going to try to get back into a routine. If you’re still reading, thank you!

  1. Happy Blogiversary! I remember it all and only wished I would have picked up some coding skills along the way. The only thing I really miss is my blogroll, no one has ever come up with anything that kept me updated on my reading as that thing!

    As far as the job loss goes, Friday was the four-year anniversary of my job loss, and looking back it ‘will’ be the best thing that ever happened to me. It’s not all fuzzy yet and I’m in a financially fragile place at the moment, but I love my stupid job and the opportunities that will open up for me because of it. My only advise is to try to see each others point of view during the hard times, and just keep laughing. In a few years you guys will look back and see it was for the best too.
