Drifting in the Blogoshpere

She's ALIVE!

Really, I am and I'm okay. *winks*

I so appreciated all who have checked in, checked up to make sure.

I find myself in a weird place... I've lived in the south for 7 years now, so southern things are a way of life rather than an anomaly.

I'm not really single anymore, but I'm not yet married.  Lawn Boy and I were hoping to take care of that this summer, but y'all, do you know how hard it is to plan a wedding when one set of kids lives a thousand miles away and the other has to have time with their other parent who lives 600 miles in another direction and then both sets of your parents are also equally as far away in separate places?

It's hard. Like really, Really, REALLY hard!

Planning a small, uncomplicated second wedding became this super big deal.

 I *maybe* had a meltdown.

So I'm not really single, but I'm not married either.

Blogging about single life and dating ~or lack there of, because I've never really "dated"~ doesn't make sense...

But neither does blogging about step-parenting, because that doesn't apply yet either...

Or planning a wedding, because ~Poor LB~ I've issued a moratorium on that too!

I'm here...I'm just trying to figure out how and if I still fit into the blogosphere!

*Suggestions welcome*

Blog about what you are going through. You'd be surprised on how people can relate in different ways or how your experience might help someone going through a similar situation. Have ya'll considered having a simple wedding ceremony and then planning the reception at a different time when the family can all be there?

I'm glad you're alive. And I agree with Aleta. Just blog about your life!
I am a HUGE proponent of eloping. Just saying. =)
(however, when my kids were younger, I would not have done it, so I totally get the argument against it as well.)

Great to read a post from you.
There is so much advice out there that people want to give you even if you don't want it. I could even throw some at you but why would take advice from some old guy. Ok, you probably already heard about step-parenting difficulties. Step parenting was very difficult for me. More of a up front warning than advice.
Myself I don't write blog posts seeking or really giving advice. I mostly just share ideas, funny stories, and a rant or two. I don't believe blogs need to stay on a focused topic. Sure a company blog should be that way. But a personal blog offers you the benefit of setting your only rules. It's part of the fun. So what do you think the dumbest movie this year has been?

I've been so behind in reading blogs...dreadfully behind...but on occasion, one pops up and there you are....

Best wishes planning the wedding.

Sometimes, it's good to take a break.

However, I always enjoy the "things you've heard or scene."

Good to see you post again.

Well me being selfish, you could always talk food--as you have good tastes in recipes and I am always hungry.

I totally understand. When everything is up in the air, it's hard to know what to do or what to say. We're here no matter what. <3

Well . . . . . . I think people like you just because they like you, not because you do or do not fit into certain categories (Southern, not Southern, new to the South, accustomed to the South, single, married, whatever). Maybe you just blog about whatever strikes your fancy--or pushes your buttons--and don't worry about making your writing conform to the title of your blog . . . you're funny and warm and insightful, and I think THAT'S what rings true with people.

I come to visit just to hear your every day stories, single, engaged, married> Doesn't matter! Hope the mini melt down helped you clear the air :)
