Aside: the whole clean slate thing has been brewing in the back of my head for a long time and I had half a post written that related to my love of the Little House on the Prairie series of books from when I was a kid and how I always wanted to be like Half-pint with her slate in school. I however did not want to school in winter OR have an over achieving with the needle and thread older sister. Apparently this Little House On The Prairie thing is a concept I can not let go of.
For more than 6 years I have been posting to this website, with my very first burst of brilliance coming on September 1st of 2004 and aptly titled
On that day I laid out a few facts about who I was, what I hoped to accomplish by maintaining a blog and my hope to keep the whole thing super duper secret. Shockingly I have yet to reveal this online home to anyone beyond my husband in the years since and the only people I know in real life who know anything about this blog (that I know of) are people I've met because of blogging.
I was also 34 back then and thought I knew a thing or two about being an adult...I'm sure I've proven myself wrong about that here a lot.
There is an off-chance that my appearance on the Yarn Harlot blog may have led to my being identified by a school secretary but since I squelched her question about Stephanie I don't believe she has pursued my true identity. I could be totally wrong.
In those 6+ years I've written a lot. Some things I shouldn't have, but a lot of things I'm proud of - given opinions that were asked for, some that were not, and some I no longer have. I've taken quizzes, posted drivel, passed along meme's and shared some photos.... there is a lot in the archives of CursingMama.
A set of archives I've decided to wipe clean, call a mulligan, re-do, start fresh.
There will be some changes here at CursingMama in the coming weeks.
The past is already mostly gone (although not totally and I do have a back-up copy)(this is why 2 posts from 2006 for some reason decided to repost yesterday afternoon), there are some redesign things in the fetus stages of planning, and I hope to be back up and writing regularly before the US Thanksgiving Holiday, Halloween if you're good.
This feels better than I ever could have imagined and it isn't quiet as drastic or dramatic as one of my current favorite songs.....but still related.
