I broke my blog again. It’s not really my fault though. This, my final blog, has finally been transferred to the new host and in the process it all went blank again. I figured it out and also figured out that it wasn’t fixable. My SQL files were corrupt so I had to reinstall WordPress and am presently re-installing my plugins and personal preferences. I’ll have it completely finished by Monday. I’m so excited, like seeing cotton candy mountains all for me, excited. So here we go again but hopefully for the last time.
It’s not very articulate but it’s exactly how I feel. Let’s take a guess at what’s driving me crazy, let’s not because you probably already know. Self hosting my blogs is driving me crazy. All of my other blogs are already in the process of switching over, yay! Not this very blog you’re reading right now. This blog will not mirror properly. I’ve tried repeatedly to mirror it and sometimes I get a blank web page with a working mobile page and other times they’re both blank. It is driving me completely up a wall. I’ve had to make some decisions so there may be a day when you come to this blog and find it blank or under construction but that will be temporary. My plan is already in effect, I’ve created a sub-domain with my host company and have recreated all the posts and pages there. Once this site goes down I will have to export all of that information back to this domain name which will give me back my posts and pages but I will have to correct my theme and plugins but I never plan on changing hosts again. To begin the end of my nightmare I’m just going to switch my DNS records and see how the chips fall.
I have no idea what I’m in for but what the hey. It’s no different from life, just take a leap and see where you land.
Well I’m finally back. It seemed like nothing could go right lately. First the snow and ice, then i got sick, then the rest of the house got a stomach virus lasting about 2 days in groups of 2, which of course finally wound it’s way back to me. I finally start to feel mostly better and then Jaime got our hosting account suspended. I didn’t want to start all over but I would and could have. I have a separate domain on another hosting company that I am using only for testing purposes because I don’t want to mess up these two blogs anymore. I am still not quite filling like myself but I am feeling a lot better, so I decided now that things have slowed down and are back in order it’s time for me to get back on track.
This is not the only blog I’ve neglected, I neglected them all but I think I’m good to go now. When I finish this post I will work out a schedule to make things a little easier. I think that a schedule is really needed so that if I must can preschedule a few posts in advance. I will be working out a schedule for both of my regular blogs. One blog pretty much manages itself and the last one like I said is for testing. I’ll get this together in no time just hard work and persistence will get me through.
On a brighter note I might be getting a new addition to my household soon. My dad’s dogs, both registered Shih Tzus just had puppies and I’ve been asking in advance for one almost 2 years. She’s almost ready to come home with me and I’m so excited. Due to complications while giving birth Shalimar only had three puppies and is unable to have any more. Both Shalimar and Dutch are both registered so the puppies are pure bred. My dad and stepmother are selling the 2 that we didn’t get. I am just glad that they are giving us one for free. I don’t really think their doing it for me though I think it’s more for my youngest daughter. She immediately stole her grandparents hearts.
I think that’s it for now. It’s dinner time in the house of too many last names. I would like to thank SoapBird for checking up on me, motivating me, and getting me back in line.
I don’t make Resolutions because I’ve never been a big believer in them. In my opinion Resolutions are something you say you’re going to do but don’t. This year Jaime told me that I had to make a Resolution list as a foundation for my plans and goals this year. Of course I procrastinated with letting others in on my list, even Jaime hasn’t seen it. So you will officially be the first and since I’ve sat down I’ve also decided to add procrastination as a resolution subject on this list. So let’s get started shall we?
I almost forgot that I also have to make it a point to keep reminding Alexys that when I say something, if I didn’t say “I promise,” then I didn’t promise. I make it a point to rarely ever say “I promise,” because I expect her to hold me to it. That’s what you expect of your children because that’s what they do. Lexy though, will try to hold me to promises I never made and she does this often Jaime also bears the brunt of this a lot too so I now specifically tell her “I didn’t promise it Lexy, I’m saying that I will do it if I can.”
So there is my list, what do you think of it? Maybe I’ve made too many lofty goals and should get rid of some of them or maybe this is just right since I have a whole year to accomplish it and maybe if I break a resolution that’s okay because I have the whole year to get it right. I think I’ll take that as my philosophy, “maybe I didn’t get it the first time, but I succeeded before the year was out.” I think that still technically counts.
I just want to say to my blog buddies. I may not always comment on your blogs because the last few days have been a little rough for me lately. Luckily, I think I’m finally coming through the other side of it all. I am making it my daily goal to comment on your posts even if it’s just to let you know that I’ve read them. Every evening around 4 PM CST I read every single blog that has a new post. That’s just half the job I signed on for so if you’re posting I’m going to be commenting. I’m sorry for not always doing what I’m supposed to but I’ll be better from here on out.
