Tag Archive: Poems

Since I switched to WordPress I haven’t been blogging much, although I have been around. I have been going through old posts and cleaning them up. I noticed that the titles and first space in the post now had a > and I have been going through posts and taking it out. I had no idea how long that would take with 1,200 posts. I was working on it for two solid days and still had over a thousand posts to go.

So then I started just redoing the ones with pictures, cause the importing caused the pictures to get a little whacked out. Not formatted right and in some cases not there, I had to find them on my passport and reinsert them. Even doing that I still am only to August 2008.

Something else I am doing is moving my poems to my craft blog and my reviews to my review blog. The poem posts are being deleted but the review posts normally have more in them then just the review, so now I have duplicate review posts. I sometimes wonder why I am going to all this trouble when most people are not going to be reading the old posts (except for my freaky stalker person). The answer of course if because I have a compulsion, my posts have to look the way I want them to. That is all.

Another thing I was reminded of when I was reading my old posts was why I started this blog. I wanted a place to talk about my weight watchers progress. I was online and the message boards can be, well, kind of snarky. Here on my blog, if someone said something I didn’t like, I could just delete it. Anyway, I am going to start that again. This weigh-in I was 139 pounds. That is up 3 from my last weigh-in. I haven’t been tracking my food, I haven’t been exercising and I haven’t been drinking my water. So, time to buckle down and lose the weight.


>A child born on the fifth day, Friday
said to be loving and giving
not causing undue pain,
for she knows very well
the pain
of intimate betrayal.

Found this here on Element 22

What day of the week were you born on?
The old nursery rhyme is kinda fun, unless you
were born on Wednesday…

>I want to know


I want to know, where you go
When life is too much
And trouble is too close to touch

I want know, where you go
When rain is everywhere
And all around you is despair

I want to know, where you go
When your head fills with screams
And the night has dark dreams

I want to know, this place that you go
Is it a house, with warm cozy rooms
When lightning flashes and thunder booms

Or is it a forest awash in sunlight
Birds all around sing songs of delight

I want you to know; wherever you go
I hope you are safe
But more than that,

I hope you come back.

December and its COLD!

We got snow over the weekend. I had to use my heater again.

The internet connection has been iffy. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. It wasn’t working all evening, I had to go to M’s room to activate my phone (this is the 2nd replacement phone) and of course I had a shadow. Now it is working in my room, so I can post here and stay on as long as I want!

I finished typing my poems so I am going to post them on Freewebs.
