I apologize for not posting my regular times last week. Things were a bit hectic. I had to keep myself busy so I would forget that I am sad and mending a broken heart. So we went to the store to shop when there was nothing we needed. And ended up trying on sunglasses for 40 minutes while HJ would make me laugh by saying things like, “Do I look cool, mommy?”.
I did things like painting a canvas that I deserted last winter when it didn’t turn out the way I pictured. And HJ and I found a giant “H” at Hobby Lobby and painted it blue.
I also upgraded A Slice of Mudpie to a new host…and I am completely lost. And completely worried I have lost all of my followers in the process. I worked hard to get all the 113 people who had followed via reader or email. You see, I started this blog without telling my friends about it (just a small handful) hoping I would gain followers who read my blog because of the content and not because they knew me and felt like they had too. I have readers who have reached out to me and become my friends. So it scares me to think all the work I put into the past 2 years has disappeared because I made a rash switch to keep my mind busy. I should have told everyone before I left!
But on the plus side, I have been working with an awesome designer who is making it all pretty.
And on top of all that, we left town. HJ and I left early Friday morning for Kansas City where we spent some much-needed time with some very loved friends. I got to hang out with one of my most wonderful friends, and HJ got to hang out with her son who is just a few weeks older than him.
And then we continued our trip South to Emporia for a memorial service for a family member. It was fun to see relatives I haven’t seen in years. And right now, HJ and I are snuggled up in a hotel bed while he asks me what I am typing about. I have been completely impressed with how he has behaved these past 3 days while meeting new people, and sleeping in new places. Hopefully 8 hours in the car tomorrow will not be as bad as I am thinking.
I hope you are all with me, and soon I will have a new “follow me” button!
