Three years ago, we rolled up our sleeves and jumped head first into a mess of a house. As a way to cope, I created this blog and have lurve-lurve-lurved all the connections and possibilities it has opened.
Now it is time to roll my sleeves up again and try-try-try to get my new site which I am calling “Keeping Up with Mrs. Smith” up and running.
A new site??
Yes. A new site with the capacity for even more possibilities!
But like most things in life, this transition has been…tricky.
A lot has gone wrong.
Stuff hasn’t worked.
Cursing and screaming have ensued.
For 7 months I have tried and failed and tried and failed again to get this new site up.
But I guess 7 months is not long compared to the 3 years [and more to come!] of blood, sweat, tears, penny-pinching and overall suffering we have already put into home ownership!
In short, this house has made me fighter and has given me a brave heart to push for more, more, more.
(Be honest: Do I look like William Wallace…or more like a creature from Avatar?)
Push, push, push is all I have been doing ever since I got laid off at work at the beginning of July. The day my position was terminated, I packed up my stuff, turned in my keys, went grocery shopping and later shampooed a rug.
It is a bit scary being unemployed, but the way I see it, I am getting paid in time instead of money. I’ve felt so pressed for time this past year that I don’t want to waste one minute of this season in my life!
So furniture is getting painted, walls are being decorated and tomatoes are getting canned (kinda like me–haha, jk).
All I have left is to see this website through….
So with that said, I will not be posting on here for a week or maybe two while I figure it all out for hopefully the last time. The next time we talk I will (FINGERS CROSSED) be inviting you to keep up with me at my new corner of the Internet.
Thank you all so MUCH for reading my tales. I have enjoyed being the Clyde Woman, and I still am a Clyde Woman, but now I can be more than just a Clyde Woman.
Does that make any sense?
You all have been amazing and I am so blessed that you take the time to read and comment on my words. (To a blogger, that is like getting a massage and a back scratch AND a pedicure all at the same time!!)
I cannot wait to see you on the other side where there will be even more recipes, projects and cat stories to share.
