Let’s try this again

usOK, here we go again.  You might have noticed my blog has been, well, not quite itself lately.

It was broken.  Very broken.  In desperation, I tried several desperate measures.  Some helped, others didn’t.  Then I decided it was nice not feeling obligated to blog all the time.  I just left it standing with my very oldest posts and had some fun mommy time instead of continuing to stress over how to fix my broken blog.

Now, thanks to friends, I think most or all of my blog’s problems have been solved except one.  It’s a huge one, but it’s just one.  Here’s the deal: I’m going to work on putting everything back, including all my posts between 2007 and now.

Here’s your part of the deal: you’re not going to complain if you have to put up with one of those annoying captcha boxes when you want to see my blog.  It should only happen to you once, or maybe once in a while, but not with every visit.  You’ll just be asked to type in a username (which is given to you right there: just read the little box) and do a single math problem that any homeschooling mom should be able to do in her head.  If you can’t, just call one of your know-it-all kids over to help.  They love that feeling of power when moms needs their help instead of vice versa.

Are we all good with this arrangement?  I hope so, because while I don’t miss feeling obligated to blog every day, I do miss using it as an online journal so we can actually record and remember all the fun stuff that happens around here.  And I miss YOU!


  1. I abandoned my broken blog (BOOKS and BAIRNS) and opened a new one rather than overhauling. Just seemed less daunting! Lol

    • Heather, I’m very tempted to do the same. But I have SO MUCH time invested in this blog, and the name is pretty well established. I’m too lazy to start from scratch, and too overwhelmed to fix this one. I’m trapped. 🙂

  2. Well now, this is more like it! You’re back! Don’t feel obligated, but do share! Glad you’re back. 🙂

    I missed you too, glad you are back!

  4. I don’t have facebook, so I am glad you are back!

  5. Oh yay! I wondered what happened to you, and even missed your fb feed! Then I remembered, fb has changed its settings. 😛

  6. You’ve been missed! I was **this** close to deleting you from my favorites bar thinking you were gone for good. I’m so glad I didn’t.

    Welcome back!

  7. Yea – you’re back!!

  8. Nana Ruth says:

    Yeah!! I’ve missed you!

  9. Nice to have you on again. Been missing your company. Now I am going to look up and see what a captcha box is….

  10. HeatherR says:

    Fine by me 🙂 Happy to see you back!

  11. Glad you’re back!

  12. We’ve missed you too!

  13. Jessica Enlow says:

    Who are you again? LOL! Good to “see” you. We have missed you. 🙂

  14. Ruthanne says:

    I say a little “work” is well worth it to have you back! You were missed in Ohio!

  15. I’ll happily captcha without complaining to have you back. 🙂

  16. I’ll be grateful to captcha if it will work for bringing the blog back.

  17. Welcome back. You have been missing in my blog roll lately 😉 No complaining, I hate captcha’s, but am willing to suffer, and while I’m most decidedly not a math genius I have a son who is – so bring it on.

  18. Kathryn says:

    Yay! I missed you.

  19. MotherLydia says:

    Captcha’s are fine with me.

  20. Crystal F. says:

    So glad to have you back!! I pray that your transition of moving things back over is easy for you!

Don't just think it: say it!
