the cover is open, for now

Just as I have had quandariness over what to do about my blog, I wondered about posting about it. My brother had suggested I started a new blog, and I had considered it, but when he said it, when it was voiced I felt this twinge of loyalty to this blog. So, I approached all of you, openly.

I am so glad that I did.

You have all been so thoughtful and generous with your responses and suggestions. Thank you. I will keep you updated on "Project Privacy" in the meantime, I will go forth as is normal.

One further thought I had while pondering all of this. I remembered being in college, and then being a houseguest at friend's, and how often I would see a few friend's journals lying around. The itchy/curious part of me thought "how cool would it be to see what they write/draw?" But I never truly considered opening or reading someone else's journal/diary. My journal might become that type of thing, for a month or so. Something you know is there, but respect the closed covers of.

We applied for and received a healthcare loan, things are set to move forward.


  1. congrats on getting the healthcare loan!! you two are full-steam ahead!!

  2. My IRL friends know I blog but are not aware of where or how. I have one sister and my mom who know the title of my blog and also my nickname. I have been trusting them for some time not to take a peek.

    It is a wonderful feeling to know they have that level of respect. I hope you can find that too.

  3. I wish you and your husband all the best.

  4. Great news about the loan! Well, great that you got it, not that you need it, but you know what I mean.

    I'm glad to keep reading along, and I REALLY hope this is the one for you! But, I completely understand your concern for privacy (especially IRL).

  5. Good luck!! My thoughts are with you.
