Setting something straight

I am feeling the need to get another blog so that I can reclaim some of my privacy.  I am an open book to most everyone and I love being that way, but some things have changed in the last 10 months and I no longer feel the freedom to tell you all everything.  The new blog would allow me that freedom.  Everyone...except for a couple of people...would be TOTALLY welcome.  That means any and everyone of you bloggy friends could read it at any time...all you would have to do is ask me to invite you.  Sorry for the confusion.  I didn't mean to make you think that you were not welcome to my new blog....when and if I ever get it started!!  Until then, if you want to know any personal questions about how things are going here at our house....friend me on Facebook @ Judith La Fountain Herdklotz.

PS- Giving up desserts for the year was to show "the child that I am most burdened for at the moment" that I love them more than desserts.  Every time I struggle not being able to have a certain dessert...I just tell myself that I love "?" more than desserts.  The more I tell myself this the more I feel the love, the more I feel the love the better I treat this child, the better I treat this child the better this child treats me.  It has been a very interesting 1 1/2 weeks.  I can't wait to see what the Lord does in this child's life this coming year and what He does in mine!!!

Just wanted to say, "Hi." 
I so miss blogging everyday.  I miss hearing encouraging words from you all.  I miss making my life an open book.  You all have helped me through some really tough situations and I thank you for that. 
At this point I have NO IDEA who even reads this thing anymore and I hate that.  I feel very discouraged that I lost my bloggy friend world. 

Here is what is going on in my life today...
I have a test tomorrow. 
I have a presentation to give on Depression next week. 
I am being forced to become a better mother.  Loving that I am getting better at it, but HATING the process that is bringing about this great change.
I am teaching Joel his ABC's.  This child just loves to learn.  It makes home schooling so much more fun when the child is actually excited about school!!
Needing to get out a letter to all our supporters to let them know that we are still alive here and that we truly appreciate their support!!
My dreams lately have been SO weird.  I am too embarrassed to even tell you about them.  Jeff just shakes his head at me and kind of laughs when I tell him about them.
I have given up desserts for an entire year!!!  One week down....51 more to go!!  If you want to know why I would do such a thing, just ask me and I will GLADLY tell you.
