You know the old saying, if you can’t change them, then join then.  Well that’s kind of what I just did with the blog theme.  I figured lots of other things  in my life were  changing, so why not change my blog theme.

I tried out lots of theme’s before picking this one.  I like the night sky.  Many gardeners use lunar signs for planting and harvesting and even the best times to pull weeds.  I know that because I’m one of those gardeners.

I’ll try out the new theme for a while and see how it feels.  I think it’s a good pick, but if it isn’t it’s easy enough to change again.

This must be a test February 14, 2009

and I feel like I’m failing.  I am a creature of routine and that routine keeps changing. 

I have a new nightly routine with Bubba’s feeding and insulin schedule.  He has to have dinner and insulin at 9am and 9pm.  My husband does the morning and I do the night one.  He seems to be doing much better and we’ll know more on Monday when he goes back for a follow visit.

My work routine has also changed.  Trying to keep ahead of the bad economy we have changed a lot of things.  So far it is working and everybody has kept their jobs, but it can be stressful.

Even the weather has changed it routine.  It has been hot and dry and each day I worry about the gardens moisture and the spring planting.

While I realize we can’t go back to the way things were I waiting for the new routines to feel familar.  I hope it happens soon.

I don’t deal well with change.  I know this.  It is something I try to work on.  So image my surprise when I went to write a post this morning. 

I had no idea what to do.  I had logged on, but was I at the wrong place?  It all looked so different.  I couldn’t figure out where I was supposed to start writing.

Now all you blog people probably really love all this new stuff.  But I’m a 45 year old tech challenged person.  I freely admit that.  I’m more comfortable with a book or in the garden than I am with even a remote control. 

Yes there was a moment a panic.  I thought my blogging days where over at worst or at best I’d have to wait for my husband to wake up and help me.  But I worked through the panic.  I thought to myself, you can do this.  Just try and figure it out.  What’s the worse that could happen?  Well I could keep pushing buttons and freeze up my lap top or maybe wipe out something really important.

I don’t think that happened.  I dealt with the change and the panic.  I’m so proud of myself.  I’m going to try posting now and see what happens.

Environmental Protection October 19, 2008

In about two weeks, we the people will pick a new president of these United States. 

I don’t believe that either of the top two options, (there are about eight candidates in all depending on your state)  will be able to fix the top five problems, health care, taxes, finance mess, war and social security.  These issues are just to big for any one person it fix. 

So I won’t vote on any of these issues.  I will vote on issues that one person will effect and possibly effect for years to come. 

Environmental Protection is top of the list of issues for me.  The next president will have the ability to strengthen federal laws ranging from fuel economy to alternative energy to endangered animals.  They will also at some point during their presidency appoint federal judges that will uphold and interpret these laws for years to come.

When you vote think about the issues that the next president has a real chance of changing or effecting, not just the big five which no one individual will ever be able to change.
