I am thankful for moving to Australia and having quality of life I never knew possible.

I am thankful for having the clarity to see this is an OPPORTUNITY for something new and better than what I had before, so I have decided to start anew.
I am thankful for new beginnings.
My prepaid internet was pretty bad the last couple of days, getting so slow I was having trouble connecting. I couldn’t download e-mails because it was timing out all the time. Friday and Saturday I could not connect at all. I was very anxious to see if flickr was going to contact me with any news. I have begged them to at least give me my username so I can still participate on the online communities there. Today the connection suddenly got back to normal, and we received some great news, our broadband connection request finally went through and hopefully we will go back to our normal internet by the end of the week. It will be great to ditch this prepaid crap (excuse my language).
Flickr still have not answered and I am not sure what is going to happen there. No matter the decision, I know the photos are gone forever. So I have decided to drop this blog, I can’t possibly go over 150 posts to fix the broken links, I don’t have time for that. However, I have also decided blogging is a big part of my online life that I so enjoy. Sometimes it is the only thing I have time for online. So we have bought a domain, www.withlovebymushy.com and we have installed blogengine.NET in there, so Alex can help me out with the coding. I have lots of new plans and things I am going to do to take my mind off everything I am leaving behind here.
The new website is nowhere ready yet, I am not sure if I am going to change the settings or not, where I am going to host my photos, where things go, etc. It is a true work in progress, but I am sure it will be a new fun corner so please let me know if there is anything you would like to see there (more tutorials? more projects? More products? freebies? More of my boys? More about me? LOL)
There will be some cross postings, I am not going to import this blog, I am going to start all over there. I might re post some of my tutorials and some of my projects from this blog in the future, but only time will tell.
So, THANK YOU for your support! see you soon and see you around!
