My occasionally snarky thoughts on everything from motherhood, politics, life and current events. Cocktails are sometimes mandatory. Bottoms up!

Thinking about starting over....

With a new blog anyway.

Amongst a few other areas of my life that are *definitely* in the process of being remade.

Some while ago - I was incredibly frustrated with the state of Echo comments. They were great while they were still Haloscan. But Echo?? Echo sucked. Sucked! Anyhoo - I was just sick to death of trying to fix and deal with them. And for a while OFTR was completely FUBAR. So what did *I* do?? I went to the Blogfather himself and asked begged for assistance.

It was determined that I could get blogger comments here - but Echo/Haloscan comments would be forever lost. Frustrated as I was - I waved my hand and said "Oh to hell with it - dump 'em...." Oops. Damn...

Now months and months later I have regrets about that.... I have documented a little over 6 years of my life here - and there have been some great ups and a few downs. And the comments?? The comments made it for me... **sigh** Oh well. if I had been smart, I would have just closed up shop here - and opened new digs elsewhere as other much smarter peeps have done. Anyhoo - as they say, hindsight is 20/20.

The good news, I suppose, is that the posts and the pics remain. Though I must admit, when I delve into the archives looking for a story, or a recipe, or a time line of events it just makes me sad... (Oh great - getting teary now.... I really need to install a cut off switch for that! ) Just one more reason I think to pull up stakes and begin anew elsewhere.

Anyway - what say you? Thoughts?? I have a couple of name ideas kicking around in my noodle too but am always open for suggestions. And I am ready to be done mourning all that has ended. And start celebrating some new beginnings! Enough all ready.

So here ya go - one for the road.... ::pours:: Let's get truckin' shall we??
