After more than four years, I am finally going to begin updating my blog again. I have taken all of my previous posts down temporarily to reorganize them, and I will, of course be adding new. I can’t think of a better way to kick of my ‘new’ blog than to repost my original greeting.

.  .  .  .  .  .

I have started this blog so that I can talk about things that I love (natural childbirth, food storage, and healthy living, to name a few) that I don’t feel comfortable posting on the family blog.

I am stating up front that nothing I post is intended to offend or hurt feelings, and that when I post criticisms of certain things, I mean them generally, and not to anyone specifically, and especially not to anyone that I know.

That being said, if you don’t like what I write, or if you are offended, please feel free to read another blog. I am very passionate about a lot of things, and that means I am very opinionated about a lot of things. While my opinions have certainly been tempered by having children of my own, I am certain that they will still be disagreed with by somebody somewhere.

So, if you have somehow stumbled upon this blog, or if I invited you, please read with an open mind, and keep your comments constructive and free of vitriol.

Let the llamaing begin!
