Mixed emotions.

Change is a comin, mostly good, but some scary. I am in the process of opening an online shop and I will be moving my blog. I am so excited because when the shop is open you will be able to buy patterns and books, and download them instantly! This will save me a lot of time and customers will have better service. But I am so scared about the blog move! I will most likely be moving to Wordpress, and when I figure it out, I will have much better service. It will be so much easier to reply to your comments, and I will have a more user friendly layout. This may sound crazy, but I am so freaked about loosing some of you! And now you see where the mixed emotions come in, I'm so torn! I really want to be able to offer a better service, and spend a little less time tied to the computer in the process; but I almost don't want to if it means loosing some of you. Will you reassure me? If I move will you follow? I am so overwhelmed right now. I never told you this story and I'm sorry. I'm sharing this picture cause this is what I feel like doing right now, just laying down in the middle of all this madness! Here is The Story: This is the day after Thanksgiving, I went shopping with Kim just to see the craziness. I didn't buy (or intend on buying) a thing. By 11:00 am (we got up at 3:30 am) I was begging Kim to let me lay on one of the display beds, in the window of a store in the mall. I told her if she would just leave me, she could come back later and get me after I'd had a little nap. She wouldn't let me, Bath and Body was having a sale and we just HAD to go. So instead of taking a nap, I gave her mama (whom we drug along with us) the camera and she took a picture of me, fulfilling my lifelong dream of laying on one of those fancy short beds in the mall. Meanwhile, Kim stood nearby and pretended not to know me. We had a good time, but boy was I tired when we got home! Have you ever been tempted to lay on the fancy short beds? When I was little I wanted to lay on one so bad! They look like they are made just for kids because they are so short. I used to imagine little elves slept in them when the store was closed. I never climbed up on one though, my mama would have slapped me naked and hid my clothes! But they make them look so inviting, I just wonder how many people give in to the temptation. Tell the truth. Have you ever got in a fancy short bed? And will you follow me? I can't move till I know you will come.

I've laid down on one of those beds. I was on Effexor XR for depression and forgotten to take my pill that day. The withdrawal on that feels like you're about to drop dead! So I laid down on a bed for a little bit.

And I'll follow your blog move!

I'll follow you. Change can be good. Best of luck with your online shop! I'll look forward to seeing it.

I'll follow. It's easy since I use Bloglines. All you have to do is put a link on your old blog (this one) to the new one when you've moved and I'll update.

Yep, I've laid on one (more than one, actually) of those beds too. And so have both of my sons.

I must not get out much, because I don't think I've ever seen one of these short beds you are talking about. I'd certainly try it though. I have pretended to live in an IKEA kitchen though. My girlfriend and I had a great time pretending we had picked out loft apartments in NY (if we had another life without hubby and kids). We were laughing so hard my daughter who was with us pretended not to know us.
Anyway, just tell me how to get to your new blog and I'll be there!

I'll follow where ever you lead. la la la (sounds like a song).

I've tried laying on those beds before. Nasty surprise...no mattress. Looked nice but didn't feel nice.

Good luck and best wishes on your new endeavors.

You should do what you need to do. Even if you have a small setback in the short term, you have great reasons to switch over and in the long run it will really pay off. :)
