Suggestions anyone? And a brief update.

I feel the need to start another blog on another site, just because. Haven't decided on the new site yet and still thinking about subject matter. I know it could just be ramblings but I'm not sure I want to do that. So - I've thought about a "Grandma" blog. Would call it, "Gramma's blog" and muse about being a grandmother and all that positive usually anyway lol stuff. A little advice for other grandmas and some personal stuff.

However, I have always wanted to do a more political type blog. My opinions; a little humor maybe. Not sure.

Then of course I could just do a blog about my experience learning how to paint...

Or a poetry blog.

And the ideas go on and on...

Several reasons for looking for a new site include that on this site lately, whether I have the captcha on or not, my comment box gets filled with spam. Some of it very weird. Some advertising blogs. Another reason is that I don't want a new blog connected to my formerly plural lifestyle blog and on this site that can't be helped.

I'm going to need emails of folks here that would like to follow any new blog I write. Please.

I have still not gone to get my stuff out of storage ... it's more than 1000 miles away and my fear of flying; my not wishing to bump in to anyone; my not knowing how I will pay for the trip which I estimate will take almost a week; my not wanting to stay with friends the whole time; ugh..can you say procrastinating?? I would love to see his family and a couple of friends but I just don't know what to do. His extended family became very dear to me over the years and I miss them but not sure .....so not sure about so many things lately.

Good to see you posting. I would love to follow whatever blog you may decide to start up, if it is okay with you. You have a great artistic side, so maybe art/poetry blogging is in order? Combining the two may give you more lattitude.

I know what it is like not to have access to your "stuff". We finally got our stuff down here, but sadly, there really isn't much left. We sold most everything in the move from Alabama to Michigan after we sold the house, and then when we moved back to 'bama to help M and C when they were so sick, we left a lot behind--only took what fit in our minivan, which wasn't much. We gave a lot of it away. I had forgotten how much, until I planned on cooking Easter Supper...no casserole dishes; no roasing pan for the ham; No cast iron skillets...no storage containers, no mixer, no blender, no crock pot. We are literally starting over from square one. Other than clothes and pictures, we only had bare bones "stuff" left.

Purging was a good thing. We learned we could live without our stuff--of course, we were living with other people, and using their 'stuff" in place of ours! LOL

In the end, though, it really is just stuff. I have Bud--and that is all that matters to me.

So sad about all the developments on your side... :( Havent been in the blogosphere for..forever.. and just read through some of your updates.
I think you should keep this blog open. whenever you want to reopen the topic on your former life or get some of the thoughts on paper, you can always post them here.
Hope the spring has been making you feel better.
My suggestion for a new activity - reading, and dont feel guilty about what you read. No need to be a literary snob! Read the chicklits, romances, Young Adult crap..thrillers. Whatever makes you happy and lets you get immersed in that world! :)
