Change? I hate change! Or do I???

I have always thought of myself as a person who dreads change. There are many times when I find myself wishing that "things" could go back to being just as they were. But then I got to really thinking about changes, and it turns out that I don't really hate ALL change.  So what's the deal? What kinds of changes do I dread? Here's a list of some changes I've experienced in the last six months and how I feel about them.

1. Online mobile deposits with my bank app: Bring it on! I love it! Such a time-saver!

2.  My middle son moving to Seattle:  Boo!

3.  Progress in treatment (both monumental and small): Yay! I love it! It inspires me!

4.  Buying a new car:  Boo! Too much work and I hate the payments.

5.  Meeting and networking with new online SLP friends: Love it any day of the week!

6.  New procedures for preauthorization of services through the insurance company I bill to the most: Awful. Don't even get me started.

7. My favorite grocery store closing after being "my store" for the past 20 years: What? They can't do this to me! Don't they know how convenient it is for me to shop there?  I know where everything is! Ugh!

8. A new locally-sourced grocery story opening in the new shopping center: Yes! I love all the healthy food options! (But it IS located in a spot that is less convenient.) (And I don't know where anything is.)

9.  Needing to paint my kitchen: Rats. It's been like this for 12 years now. It's just fine, right?

But the best one is #10, so (drumroll please), without further ado...

10. Giving my blog and social media sites a makeover: Yes! I'm so excited! I can't believe I've waited THIS LONG to do it! And Blogs Fit for a Queen did a fabulous job with the design and pulling it all together.

So what do you think of the new look??? I hope you like it, because I won't be changing it anytime soon!


  1. It looks amazing! You have been busy and the change looks good on you!

  2. I just LOVE your new look! It is GREAT!!!!

  3. I love the new look! (I would stick with it for awhile!)

  4. LOVE! It looks great!!

  5. This was a great change! (I'm ambivalent about change as well!)

    1. Thanks Linda! It's fun to have a new look and to mix things up a bit! Now hopefully it will inspire me to blog a little more often!
