Cry Baby 101
I thought the best way to open this
new blog site was with the truth. I'm a big cry baby! Yup, I cry at commercials, someone holding a puppy, or even someone
else crying. There are times I have to mute the tv and walk out of the room I become such a mess. Pay me a compliment and
the dam breaks! A very good friend gave me a surprise party once when I announced I was quitting my job and going back to
the US. One of the gifts I got was Kleenex wrapped in a big box so I would have to dig for it!
I just had a good cry over shutting down my previous
blog site a couple days ago due to months of Weebly trying to force me into purchasing services I didn't need nor want. For
months they have been plastering their huge banner at the bottom of my site and even blocked my ability to post new pieces
due to their banner blocking the post button on my work page. I was able to get them to remove that so I could add more
pieces but it didn't last long. It went right back on. Just recently they insisted, yes, insisted, I transfer my domain
name to them or I couldn't use their "free" services. They didn't come right out and say that but they sure were
all around it! They wouldn't budge so I shut it all down after letting them know that I would let people know about this.
a company is going to advertise something for free then do it!!
So off to my corner I went and cried. Between building the blog site and all the
pieces I wrote, it was months of work. Of course I kept all my writings but now I would have to find another blog site and
start over. That could take weeks! Back to my corner for more crying.
After totally dehydrating myself I grabbed a book and went to bed, in
the middle of the day. There was just no hope for this basket case. I read myself to sleep. I woke up hours later only
to start with the crying yet again. Sorry piece of work I was becoming. I tried sitting down to write something and nothing.
Just blank, blank, blank! I crocheted for an hour which stopped the water flow temporarily. So I got on my exercise bike
and rode my butt off to CCR. Credence Clearwater Revival for you youngins. And no I'm not old, just full of attitude!
Half way thru "Down On The Corner",
it hit me...I have a one page website sitting there doing nothing! Soooooooooooo, off the bike I hop and run to the computer!
I never cleaned up a page so fast in my life! And yes you guessed it, tears rolling down giving Niagara Falls some competition!
Now I am writing this and feeling euphoric!
Reading and writing have become my life, what I live and breathe for. The dawn is breaking with a breathtaking sunrise and
the breeze is gentle. My planted flowers are growing and blooming. The weather is perfect, the coffee is brewing, the bread
maker is doing its thing and I just got me back!
One tear of joy to start the day.
