Biting the bullet.....

Hey guys!  

Just wanted to wish all my family and friends reading here, a very happy Thanksgiving holiday :)  

This whole ad thing has really messed things up for me.  You all know I just suck at maintaining two journals in the same place, well imagine what two journals on two different sites does.....   

I really don't want to learn a new site, to make my new place look like mine... I already have a place~here, in my first 'home'.  I know some people have subscribed to Changenotes, but not many and I know its a big pain for my loyal readers to follow me around.   

I am against the ads, still.  Will always be and will continue trying to stop them.  But I think.... no, I know.... writing somewhere else doesn't feel right.  I am not comfortable there.  Sounds silly, I'm sure.  I am already a virtually unknown in J~Land,  Blogspot is like jail for me.  I feel isolated and alone there.   

This is my favorite time of the year from Thanksgiving until Spring, I come alive.  The first measurable snow fall brings me to life and sets the wheels in my head turning towards happiness and harmony, instead of the monotonous droning that Spring and Summer bring for me.  Kinda like a reverse Seasonal Affective Disorder :)  

Anyway, I think, on this day of thanks, Kitty's coming home..... to stay.  

I am thankful to everyone who stands next to me to continue our fight against ads.  I am thankful for my friends here... my second family.  I am thankful that the people I've grown to adore in this, our online community, are forgiving and non judgmental.  I am thankful for all of J~Land,the popular bloggers and not-so popular ones, the ones who left and the ones who stayed~you're all special in my book.  

Most of all, I am thankful for second chances.....   

Hope your families are all safe and happy this Thanksgiving, and for many more to come.  

Now, let's eat!  

Kitty~

Happy Thanksgiving to you Cat, and to your family :o)
You're coming home, I'm so glad!!
I would have read you wherever you were, I just haven't sorted out my bloglines thing yet.  It's on my list of things to do.  It is bloglines isn't it?  I might put all my journals on there and do away with alerts, not sure yet.
So, eat lots of yummy food for me, 'cause we don't have Thanksgiving here, booo!

Are you just saying this because you know I won't make graphics for non-AOL blogs?  HEHEHE, okay I know, the universe doesn't revolve around me, but a girl can dream, right?  Whatever decision you make is yours and yours alone, which makes it the right one.  To each his own I say.

Glad to have you home, where I believe you belong.

Happy Thanksgiving Kitty!

((huge hugs)))  

Welcome home!!  

I am so happy to hear you have decided to stay.  I tried to leave too...and I just couldn't...it didn't feel right, it didn't feel like home.  I don't agree with the ads either, or how the way aol handled it...

But I am SO glad you are home once again.

*hugs*

Hey, I just noticed that pic of you. How pretty! Did I miss it before? or did you just add it???  

I love when I can picture the people that are writing!

Holly

Glad you are staying around here, would definetly miss ya! I like the Holidays coming up but I hate this season of the year, I hate the cold weather. i wanna get a house somewhere for the winter where it is always nice warm weather, this cold air is not good for Theresa, although I love the snow, hehe

Kisses to Gracie

Love,
Theresa
