Well hello again
I've already decided to fill this post with lovely images, simply to keep your tempers low and your spirits high.  Why?

Well because I've once again gone and changed everything up.
Just to annoy you a little more, and frustrate myself a bit too.

Seriously though, I'm starting to chant the "why fix it if it ain't broke" mantra over and over again as I find myself going back to so many of the "old" things we recently changed.  "Old" things that never had anything wrong with them to begin with...
One being the blog, along with many other "things" I won't bore you with here.
In each case the decision provides relief and happiness.

About the blog, let me clarify and say I never wanted to "get rid" of the old one...it's just that the blog became a little more than a place where my immediate family read about my pregnancy and life as a new mom.  And now that people I don't know, and clients, etc. read this blog...I just thought maybe I needed something a bit more professional than "theroefam."  I thought about it for over a year and just decided to do it.  Welllllllll that kind of crashed and burned.  That $@&* blog caused more trouble than, again, I even want to bore you with.  One thing after another to the point that I dreaded getting on and having to "deal" with it all.

After all... this is JUST a blog.
NOT something that should be bothering/annoying/stressing/frustrating me.

So I bit the bullet and spent the $10 it takes to purchase your own domain name for a year.  That way the old blog is STILL my "new blog" {for sentimental reasons, this = heart} AND I have a domain name that's a little more professional.  Therefore you can access the blog via www.theroefam.blogspot.com OR www.createlivedesign.com


Fun for all.


So, if you even care to or want to, you can gleefully change all your bookmarks or links or readers or whatever BACK to www.theroefam.blogspot.com OR www.createlivedesign.com


And, to thank you for dealing with my schizophrenia, there will be a giveaway or two this upcoming week.


Bless you all and God Bless the Broken Road that brought me back to theroefam.
Where I belong
