This is not my blog... [20 Dec 2020|07:51pm]
So I love LJ and a few close friends have LJ. And I wouldn't want to ever miss an update.

BUT unfortunately I ran into a huge huge snag with LJ... you can't mass-edit entries without being a paid member...

Which'd be a big problem for someone who say, for example, were hit by a careless driver for the 2nd time (getting even more spinal injuries and developing permanent chronic pain, forcing them to completely leave behind a career they'd worked so hard on), then wrongfully lost their benefits & had to start legally going after those benefits... against scummy people who'd already lied & who would just love to stalk their way through journal entries to try to find anything they could misconstrue.

So a person in that awful situation would either have to go through by hand to delete hundreds of entries, pay money to become a member of a blog service that had this big not-so-nice flaw (money being a huge problem due to this situation!), OR would have to delete their whole LJ. Sad eh?

So let's just say that in "support" of this hypothetical situation, I'm no longer blogging with LJ but rather still using it to follow my good friends...

To read up on my own entries (in a current state of censoring, unfortunately, which will hopefully be over within a few years...), please visit my REAL blog:

To check out any of the freebies and blinkies that were posted in this LJ's previous entries (many of which no longer show up b/c I was no longer able to afford hosting a separate website for them), please visit my Design website:

About this blog's freebies... [29 Mar 2011|06:00pm]
Just wanted to update about this blog's freebies...

Just like this blog's content has moved to my new blog website at Krismom.com, the freebies actually changed location as well...

Back when I was posting in this cutiemommie LJ regularly, I was hosting all of my free blinkies on a site called BlinkieMommies (and as such, all the freebies here are linked there). BUT I couldn't keep maintaining so many websites and instead the blinkies are now all hosted on my little design site, KStarDesign.

I won't be able to go through and change all of the links here (OMG, would that ever be copy-and-paste hell! no automated way to do it that I know of, which is one of the main reasons I've moved away from LJ's blogging platform completely to my own more "controlable" blogging software - even to the point I don't even cross-post my entries here), SO if there are any freebies or blinkies that you are lead to find here via a search somehow, just swap in www.kstardesign.com instead of www.blinkiemommies.com and the link should point you in the right direction!

And if this doesn't work for you, please visit the new Freebies page of my design site and your search will turn up any of the old freebies and one of the hundreds I've created since!!!

Krismom Blog :) [02 Aug 2007|02:04pm]
[ mood | cheerful ]

So I've made some changes and some decisions! Thanks to everyone who answered my poll, whether it was on LJ or YM! :)

Here is the update on what will be happening with my blog. I'm really hoping this makes it easier for everyone to tune in! ;)

* My Krismom blog is going (mostly) public. There will still be some entries that are IRL-friends-only, but most of it will be viewable by all my readers.
* You can access my blog one of 3 ways: on LJ at krismom.livejournal.com,or from my website at blog.krismom.com OR krismom.com/blog/ or on Facebook.
* Readers will be able to comment on my Krismom blog (without being listed as Friends).
* I will "retire" my cutiemommie blog.
* I will go back down to "Basic" membership so no one has to see any ads on my blog.
* I will be posting pictures on my blog (small-med versions) but the Full-size and complete collections of pics will still be in our password-protected family gallery.
* I will continue posting up new blinkies and news about my Cafe Press stores, but will try to do these behind LJ cuts whenever possible.

* With the 2 blogs re-combining, I suspect I'll be publishing about one entry per day on the Krismom blog. If you can handle the high-traffic-ness, please add me to your Flist, and if not, just pop in (in either of the 3 ways) when you remember.

Please feel free to post any questions you may have during the transition period and thanks to all my friends (both IRL and online!) for staying tuned through the changes and keeping up with what's going on in my (usually quite interesting!) life! ;) ;) ;)

x-posted like, everywhere!! (YM, LJ, Facebook, e-mail)

Sick today [24 Jul 2007|08:45am]
[ mood | sick ]

I was up sick in the night and don't feel well this morning. :(

Gonna stay home and take it easy today, here's hoping the kids don't mind some extra TV. With all the activities we've done in the past month I've been home with them, I don't feel too bad having a day just at home doing nothing.

Krismom.com [23 Jul 2007|11:34am]
[ mood | cheerful ]

So I went and registered krismom.com :)

I know, I know, how many .coms does one person need right? This brings the tally up to 4.

babbling about site hostingCollapse )If you could please take a moment to answer this poll, that would be so great and helpful!! :)

I want to take my "readers" into account in making this decision. If a lot of people, especially my IRL friends, say it'd be better for me to stay on LJ then I'll probably do that. If people are comfortable checking krismom.com once in a while to find out how I'm doing, I think I'd have fun doing a blog on my own site. :) TIA!! :)

Poll #1026393 Kris' blog

Would you continue to read my blog if it was on it's own site instead of LiveJournal or Facebook

Absolutely! I'll follow your blog wherever it goes.
Probably! I might stop by occasionaly.
Yes, but I'd rather not, LJ is convenient for me.
No, I only check my Friends page.

Positives & Negatives of one day [20 Jul 2007|11:09am]
[ mood | tired ]


- Harmony's coming home this morning!! :)

- We made Fruity play-doh and it turned out well (smells good!). *click for a pic*Collapse )

- We are going swimming this afternoon with my friend Karen and her daughter Aili, so that should be fun!


- It's really pouring rain out there (which is also a positive because I like the rain - as long as I'm *inside* that is!)

- Avery threw both of his rubber boots at me! Ouch! :(

- Avery has not really been into much "independant" play today (something we're working on!). Right now he's doing play-doh again so that's good.

New blinkies: SAHM/WOHM/WAHM, Birth [19 Jul 2007|03:45pm]
[ mood | busy ]

*blinkies*Collapse )</strong>

I really thought I'd like this SAHM thing!! [18 Jul 2007|02:14pm]
[ mood | blah ]

So it's "week 4" of being a SAHM.

And I've really been trying my best.

Last week I took the kids swimming at the wave pool, to Midway (like a fun park with games/machines for Harmony and a jungle gym for Avery), to Chapters to buy some books (and so Avery could play Thomas trains), to the mall, and then this week I've taken Avery to playgroup which he absolutely loved.

And I take them to the park a LOT 'cause it's right next to our house so we're there almost every day, sometimes more than once a day.

And I've been enjoying doing things with them too, like reading stories to Avery. I just like being "that kind of Mom", kwim?

But sometimes I think my expectations for myself are too high.

Like yesterday by the end of the day, I was too tired to give Avery a bath, and Paul had to do more with him to get him ready for a bed. And I felt like such a crappy parent. :(

I think my problem yesterday was partly because I helped out my sister-in-law by picking her up, taking her and her bunny to the vet, then hanging out with her and then taking her home, which means less time to myself during Avery's nap and a lot of extra drving around and maybe I'm not at the stage yet where I can help other people much while still saving energy for myself.  And also it might have partly been just giving too much to Avery. Like I didn't need to stick by his side at playgroup and do all the stuff with him, he probably would've been fine if I backed off and just let him play.

I think I need to be a little more assertive with him, sometimes he's so cute I just give in to whatever he wants. Which is not necessarily the best thing. Maybe I've been spoiling him a little too much.

K, wow, that was long.

Suffice it to say I've really been reminded that being a stay-at-home-mom is *lots* of work!!!
