A Troubled Raggedy Update

“There is no love without forgiveness, and there is no forgiveness without love” ~ Bryant H. McGill

*Bddrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrring * Bdrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrig

Her: *A most sincere apology. From reading what you wrote I completely understand how you feel.

Me: *I let her know how much I appreciate her understanding. (This is how genuine relating feels. She did not play victim and stated honestly and openly that she understood why I was hurt.) *It is alright. I am feeling much better now. Thank you. (You were instantly forgiven with your opening words)

Us:*We had a conversation about a lot of other things. It was a good talk.

Me: * I apologized for the hurt the post caused. (I expressed my true feelings about some pain that I have been living with in relating to her in a post)

Her: *You had every right to feel that way, but thank you.

(This was the most beautiful conversation we have had in a long time)

Me: *I love you!

Her: *I love you too!

I believe the post saved a troubled relationship.

I removed the post from my blog. I appreciate the support from all the wonderful people who responded. I love you all!

People need trouble- - a little frustration to sharpen the spirit on, toughen it. Artists do; I don’t mean you need to live in a rat hole or gutter, but you have to learn fortitude, endurance. Only vegetables are happy. ~William Faulkner

I have been plinking along as a newbie in the blogosphere. I was proud when I could correct my spelling errors. Learning to upload a photo was exciting. I learned how to add music to my blog. I found some cool things to put on my side bar. I learned how to add links in html to the template. Other than blogger being down for maintenance or having other problems I was doing fine.

Until….I went to add a link to my blog yesterday. I clicked the save changes button. I waited 15 minutes. The next thing that happened was my template was gone! All I got when I opened my blog was a black page with It’s a Raggedy Life in a square on top. I went to the edit post list. It showed my posts were there. When I clicked on the view button for the post I got the same black page as when I opened my blog to view it. I went back to the dashboard. I started a new blog. I saved the template from the new blog. I went back to my old blog and did a copy paste to my template. I got my profile back and my posts.

I read a post not long ago and I do not remember who you are. You wrote about printing your blogs and saving them in three ring binders. You also said in case any one ever wanted to know what their Grandma was about they could read them. I may not have that exactly right but something along those lines. I had never tried printing my blog. After I read your post I printed one of my posts just to see what that would look like. I then put it in a pile of papers that I have stacked on a shelf. I want you to know how much finding that one printed post meant to me. I had lost my sidebar and all my links! From the printed page I was able to find the blogs that were on my links. I took the names from that printed page. I had to search to find each and every one of you. I had to find your web address and enter you all back in the template. If I missed someone please let me know. That three ring binder woman sure got me out of a tight spot.

I can’t find my calendar or my horoscope badge. I searched and searched the internet and could not find where I got them. I got a cool new clock though. I found my friends and that was the most important thing.

I copied and pasted my template to a word document in case this kind of thing happens again. I am writing about this because the three ring binder idea saved my friends. I also thought many of you might want to head to your template and copy and paste it somewhere safe in case this were to ever happen to you.

Woooohooooo my mystery woman dropped in and left a comment! Thank you Kenju !!!!!

“We do not have to visit a madhouse to find disordered minds; our planet is the mental institution of the universe.” ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

A recent scientific study found that women find different male faces attractive depending on where they are in their menstrual cycle.

For example, when a woman is ovulating she will prefer a man with rugged, masculine features.

And just before she is menstruating, she prefers a man doused in petrol and set on fire, with scissors stuck in his eyes and a cricket stump shoved up his arse.

PMS in the Bible

This older couple was sitting around their apartment; she was clipping coupons while he was reading the bible.

The old man said to his wife, "You know honey, everything you ever wanted to know about life is in here."

She returned, "Well, maybe not EVERYTHING, dear."

He replied back, "Sure, just name one thing I can't find in here."

She said, "PMS-you won't find anything about it in there."

He began flipping through the pages, going from one chapter to another, pausing for a few seconds only before going on to the next page. After about 10 minutes, he looked up at his wife and said, "Aha! Here it is, I told you everything was in here."

Then he proceeded to begin reading the script "... and Mary rode Joseph's ass..."

1. The Female always makes THE RULES.
2. THE RULES are subject to change without notice.
3. No Male can possibly know all THE RULES.
4. If the Female suspects the Male knows all THE RULES, she must immediately change some of THE RULES.
5. The Female is never wrong.
6. If it appears the Female is wrong, it is because of a flagrant misunderstanding caused by something the Male did or said wrong.
7. If Rule #6 applies, the Male must apologize immediately for causing the misunderstanding.
8. The Female can change her mind at any time.
9. The Male must never change his mind without the express written consent of The Female.
10. The Female has every right to be angry or upset at any time.
11. The Male must remain calm at all times, unless the Female wants him to be angry or upset.
12. The Female must, under no circumstances, let the Male know whether she wants him to be angry or upset.
13. The Male is expected to read the mind of the Female at all times.
14. At all times, what is important is what the Female meant, not what she said.
15. If the Male doesn't abide by THE RULES, it is because he can't take the heat, lacks backbone, and is a wimp.
16. If the Female has PMS, all THE RULES are null and void and the Male must cater to her every whim.
17. If the Male, at any time, believes he is right, he must refer to Rule #5.

“Only by joy and sorrow does a person know anything about themselves and their destiny. They learn what to do and what to avoid.” ~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
