Back in the Saddle!!

Yes, that's right. Surprise!! Your eyes do not deceive you, Romance Rookie is back in the saddle again. I really miss the blogging community and am making a comeback. So bear with me as I get my meager blogging skills back.

Funny story. I just spent the better part of 3 hours trying to recover my account to access my blog. I couldn't remember my password as it has been close to 5 years since my last post. I am trying all kinds of things to troubleshoot the problem including spending hours trolling google forums looking for clues. Only three hours later, after I have given up accessing my old account I decided to create a new account. When I opened up my password spreadsheet to store my login and password information for my new account, I discover that I had my old account information in the spreadsheet. The whole time I was thinking it was outdated. Nope, I tried it and it worked!!! It's bitter sweet. Yay it worked!! But if only I had opened up the spreadsheet 3 hours ago I could have saved myself a lot of hassle!!

I have some important updates to share with you. The kids are older: DD 14 YO and DS 8 YO now. I am a year and half into my new, less stressful job, and I'm no longer on the Junior League of Greater Winter Haven's board. Which means I have more free time on my hands now!

Expect some changes to my blog. While, book reviews will still be featured on my blog, I also plan to include other topics that interest me. Some of which will most likely include travel, fitness, fashion, home improvement projects and basically anything that is fun and interesting. The only topics I know for certain will not be covered are politics and tragic world events.

Hi Lori!

Thanks for visiting. I am glad to see you are still around. I was looking through my old blog feeds and saddened to see so many have stopped blogging. A lot has changed in five years!!! I can't believe so much time has passed.
