Sorry for the absence…

When I first started blogging, I thought it was awesome!  I was on here all day, everyday.  Then life just kind of took over.  I haven’t got a free day this week.  I have something to do each and every stinking day.  UGHHHHHH!!!!  It’s okay though.  Exposure therapy, right?  Blogging is still awesome, it’s just that I haven’t had time to actually sit down and type.  Or maybe I have had the time, I just don’t know what to write about.  Or maybe I’m just not in a good mood and don’t feel like writing.  Any which way you look at it, I don’t want you all to forget I exist, too.  So, I’m just taking a break I suppose.  I just found out that a good friend had a heart attack and is in the hospital.  That is where I’ll be tonight.  Tomorrow?  Court, first thing in the morning then group therapy for my son in the evening.  Wednesday  Pain management in the morning then a 1:00pm meeting with my son;s guidance counselor. Thursday?  Taking one of my girlfriends for her first ultrasound.  Friday?  A birthday party that my son was invited to.  And Saturday?  It’s my love’s birthday.  So I’m going to devote the day to making him happy.  If he chooses to spend it hunting, so be it.  There will be a hot meal on the table and presents to open when he gets home.  So… that’s my week in a nut shell.  When will it end???  Hope you all have a great week!!

Peace, Love and Happiness, Always,

~Kate…one non-stop running, Kate.

I’m back… I think.

At least I hope I’m back.  I apologize for the disappearing act, but it has been a very trying month or so, and I had a lot going on.  I had to get it out, elsewhere.  Those of you who know about my second blog have obviously been kept up to date.  I’m  feeling so much better, and back to wanting to write.  So, here’s to what’s hopefully the last of this particular low, and now…on to writing!

Peace, Love and Happiness, Always,

~Kate…one, back in the saddle again, Kate.

Well…this just sucks.

There is so much I want to say; so much I want to write, but I can’t.  I can’t because my ex admitted he has people stalking my blog to get info back to him.  And as much as I want to write, I’m not going to spoon feed him my personal life info.  Had he kept hiss mouth shut, perhaps he’d know more.  So anyway, I’m going to continue this blog, but I’m also going to start a new one in an attempt to get rid of him…again.  I’ll still keep this blog and write on here, but I want to be able to write freely.  Knowing they stalk me on here is creepy enough.  Um… don’t you have anything better to do?  So, I’ll keep you all on here and hopefully run into you on my new blog as well.   There will be no similarities to this one, no pics, as he uses google image search, but some how I’ll let you know it’s me.

Political Correctness on Word Press

I’m fairly new to the concept of blogging, and I have to admit, it’s still a bit intimidating to let my emotions out for all the world to see.  Have you ever heard of the “Labeling Theory”?  Well, if not, I’ll give you the basics.  Someone calls you crazy for years and years, (a label) and you start to believe it.  So, because my ex’s are mean and rotten and full of venom, they haven’t had very many nice things to say about me.  So, for quite a few years I was under the impression I was in fact crazy.  Well, after a few sessions with my therapist, I’m now well aware that I’m not the crazy one.  I won’t place blame, as we all have to hold ourselves accountable, and some people just aren’t there yet.  However, I will say that after my most recent conversation with my ex, I do believe there is some seriously strong mental instability in his head and in his household.

With that said, as I’m sure you’re aware, WordPress sends you a cute little symbol to notify you that you have a new follower.  I check everyone out who follows me, and I have to admit, when I go to their blogs, there is some pretty negative posts.  I’m trying to better my life by removing negativity.  I know the proper thing to do is to follow someone who chooses to follow you, but I simply can’t.  I don’t want to scroll through all the posts in the morning seeing nasty negative posts.  I’m not saying my life is rainbows and sunshine all the time, but if I know negativity is no good, why would I sign up to follow it?  I’m positive for a reason.  I like the way it feels.  I like being happy.  I just think that if I were to follow all of those following me, I might be brought down.  Does that make sense?  So, if you are following me, and I haven’t returned the follow, I hope you understand my reasoning.  And so many times people follow me and I don’t have time to look at their blogs, ultimately forgetting to do so.  So, sometime during the week, I will check you all out, I promise.  If I’m not following you back, it might be a simple overlook on my part.  However, if you’ve got nothing but negative rants and nasty posts, that may be the reason I’m not a follower.  I apologize, but I want positivity!!!  I want to feel good and be happy.  If I read nasty blogs, I’m afraid I might absorb that negative energy and be miserable all day.

So, I hope you all have a great night, and know that I will be checking out all of my followers within the next week (schools starting so my time is currently limited).  Those of you I do already follow?  I love you all!!!  AND…  I’ll be blogging with you soon! 🙂

~Kate…one, trying to be politically correct on WP, Kate.

Okay… I lied…

Well, not entirely.  I gave up on focusing on my followers.  I didn’t start a blog to gain a following.  I started a blog to write.  Then I reached 50 followers.  I was so flipping excited! When it hit 100?  I had to be peeled off the ceiling.  Then I decided to stop focusing on that.  I love each and every one of you, but I was getting wrapped up in my followers and losing sight on what I originally started out to do, which was write.  Sometimes I have bad days and need to vent, but more often than not I’m trying to pick out the good in all my days.  I vowed to not focus on the ever increasing number of followers and just kept writing.  Well, today (last night, but I opened it today) WordPress sent me a message saying it was my best day for likes.  So, my curiosity was piqued.  I did it.  I hit the stats button, only to see that I am 4 followers away from 200.  I do hope that this number one day reaches 20,000, but I am satisfied with my 196 (plus 2 email followers and if my FATHER would create a link to follow me by email that’d put me even closer).  You are all amazing, and extremely inspiring.  I look forward to reading your posts each morning, and the conversations that will soon transpire as I respond.  You are all so kind and supportive.  And POSITIVE!!!  I don’t want any negativity on here whatsoever!!  I love to be happy.  I love the way it makes me feel, and the fact that laughter is not only the best medicine, BUT, it’s so very contagious, motivates me even more.  Why, when we have the option to choose happiness, do so many of us pick anger and misery?  It’s such a bad feeling.  I believed for the longest time that I was alone in my thinking.  Then I met all of you.  This is my home.  This is where I belong.  You all have no idea what your words of inspiration do for me.  One day, I will go down the list (better make it soon before my number of followers increases) and thank you all personally for the part you play in my happiness. 

So, I caved.  I gave into my ego and looked at my stats.  And I’m so glad I did.  This is a sincere thanks to all of you.  All of you who keep me writing, who inspire me to keep being positive when I’m surrounded by negativity.  All of you who continue to be right here for me and comment on my blogs.  If I can help just one person achieve happiness, I will be grateful.

I hope you all have a great day!  I know I’m going to.  Happy blogging, and keep the positivity coming!!

Change in weather? I’m OUT!!!

Daily prompt: Sudden Shifts

You’re at the beach with some friends and/or family, enjoying the sun, nibbling on some watermelon. All of a sudden, within seconds, the weather shifts and hale starts descending form the sky. Write a post about what happens next.


I hate to put this in writing, to actually put a scene before your very eyes, one that I’m not very proud of. However, you asked, so I’ll tell you.  As soon as the weather stats to change for the worse, I am outta there!  I HATE thunder storms (you can find my hiding when these pop up) and snow?  Ughhh  I’m more annoyed than afraid, but I know at some point I’m going to have to drive in it, which scares me.  So, I wish there was no change in the weather.  I’d like to live where it’s between 65 and 70 degrees all the time, with maybe a possible shower.  I love a light rain. Hail?  I’ll pass.  I know it hurts/burns/stings when you’re caught in it, and it does more damage than good.  Does it even do any good?  I’m thinking no.  So, I could do without a change in weather altogether.  I’m quite content with the above description of a steady temperature and light rain.  So if you live in area like this PLEASE let me know.  I will make moving arrangements ASAP!!
