Okay, I wigged out I admit it. This blog and life in general suddenly felt like they were suffocating me and I had to dig my way out and step away from a lot for a moment. I happy to say that I have resurfaced, I’m refreshed and ready to step back into some normalcy in a much more simplified fashion. Before I blab on any further though I have to say “THANK YOU” to Tiffany at Sweet Phenomenon, because even though she has no idea, she is a big reason why I mustered up the energy to crawl out of my hole and come back.
Why the Big Thank You?
Well, you see, Tiffany just got back from Blissdom and has written a few posts that just got to me like a big high five across the face. They were just the encouragement I needed to remind myself why I started doing this in the first place and to put all of those negative feelings connected to this blog behind me.

When I first made the switch from “Home School Tweet” to “That Odd Mom” I attempted to break down all the things I like to write about into their own blogs so that fans of the HST wouldn’t feel left behind and forgotten. Well, it was a ridiculous theory and everything has been merged back into one central blog.
What’s With the Other Site?
“What other site?” you ask. Well, if you click on “Meet the Odd Mom” you will find it. For now, it is where I will house stuff that is more about “me” but eventually all of That Odd Mom will migrate here as well as the domain. Why?
I got an awesome invitation this weekend to access the Squarespace 6 Beta platform. If you didn’t already know, this site is housed on Squarespace 5 and I LOVE SQSP. I was giddy like a schoolgirl when I received the invitation because this new platform has some AMAZING potential in the site/blog building arena. For now though, I’m not able to tweak the design as much as I would like and they are still working on implementing many features so I am just going to keep playing with the new platform and when I think it is ready I will be me moving on.
I just want to say thank you to my readers that have stuck by me through my meltdown. You are AWESOME and must be just as ODD as I am to stick around for my craziness!
