Organization

Yeah...you're in the right place.

Fall always does it to me.
Maybe because I live in a world of teachers and students.
For me, fall is re-organization time.
Kind of a spring cleaning,
except in the autumn.

So, I've re-organized the blog. I hope you find it easier to use. There is a drop-down list of old posts, and I went through all of them and fixed the music on them. I wish there was a way for it to show the titles of the posts instead of the dates, but there isn't. Well, there is, but it makes this huge, weird list that's quite difficult to navigate. If I knew more HTML, I could probably fix it. Oh well.

I also organized all the music. Many people have asked about some of the songs I talk about, particularly from the CB site, since I often could just post the lyrics. So I included all the songs I posted here, plus all the ones I either posted or mentioned on CaringBridge. All of those can be found in the playlist at the bottom of this page. Lots of the songs can be hears on Air1 radio. There's a link in the sidebar. They have stations all over the country and you can also listen online.

There's a slideshow to the side, but it always starts with the most recent picture, which drives me crazy. Not sure I'll keep that one.

There's a strip of photos along the bottom...it should randomize for you, and give you a broad selection of Meyer pics.

Along the side, there are links to "our" schools, as well as autism info and brain tumor info.

And last but not least, there's a poll...tell me what you think of the new blog-home.

Okay, now...should I get to that pile of paperwork I need to file?
Or maybe get organized for my classes?
Or deep-clean my house?
Or the garage? (Oh so badly needed?)

Nah....I think I'll take a nap!

Comments

  1. I like it very much. It's really streamlined. (Only one comment - you have the date wrong under Dave's picture. It says '95.)

    Have a wonderful nap! :)

  2. Girlfriend this is neat and tidy. It is refreshing like the Fall air that has come upon Walla Walla suddenly. Get all your rest and relaxation before the maddness of Fall hits.

    Your new blog looks great! We are alike in many ways! I can always find an excuse NOT to do paperwork! :)

August Blog Challenge - Day 9

List 10 people who have influenced you and describe how.

Okay, on this blog you've read a lot about my mom and dad.  And Dave, Doug and Kyle.  And Kenny, Zach, Kaitlyn and Kailee.  These people are my family.  Everything I do, I do for them.  It would be impossible for me to adequately describe their influence on me.  And I've talked about them a lot.  So I'm just going to say a word about each of them and what they've taught me - and then I'll go into 10 people outside that circle.

Mom taught me to think of others.  Dad taught me to work hard.  Dave taught me to love unconditionally and out loud.  Doug taught me to never give up and to enjoy each moment.  Kyle taught me to be a mother.  Kenny taught me to embrace the life you have and to laugh.  Zach taught me to think things through and go 100%. Kaitlyn taught me about honesty and that there is always sunshine, even when you can't see it.  Kailee taught me new aspects of faith and faithfulness.

Tattoo

So.
I got a tattoo.  Christine actually wrote on my facebook post, "You??"
Yeah.  Me.

I've been thinking about it for six years.
I finally decided that if after six years, I still wanted it, maybe it was time.

The writing is Dave and Doug's.
Taken from notes they wrote me.
They always signed their notes the same way.

I thought I was doing it in memory of them.
To mark the way they are always on my heart.
To have a visible reminder.
A permanent keepsake,
always with me.

And while it is that.
It is also more.

I didn't realize it,
until afterwards.

It's a marker.
A closing of a chapter.
Closure, if you will.

I don't know how to explain it.
The minute it was finished,
I knew.
I knew something inside me was different.

Dave,
and to a lesser extent,
Doug,
have been part of my every thought
every day
for over 10 years.

Daryl saw the Dali Lama this summer.
One thing he learned:
Interrogate your truth.

I've been thinking about that a lot.

Interrogate implies a…
