Blog makeover coming very soon!

Like as in, tomorrow! This here blog will be getting a new name, (which means a new domain,) a new host, and of course a new theme! That's right, I'm taking this blog back to WP. Well because that's where all my other blogs are, and it's more stable and flexible than ever. I have plans to participate in the 24 hour readathon in April, (along with the April A-to-Z challenge here,) and I'm making very, very super-secret plans for something this summer, (I can't say anything about that publically just yet.) I'll also be participating in Ultimate Blog Challenge on my business blog. I'm very much looking forward to my couple months of blogging challenges, will also be doing one in May.
By the way, I intend to leave this blog up until the domain stops working. I'm not going to renew it, but I'm not going to just take it down either. I'll be starting over with my content at the new blog.

Something hilarious happened!

Lol, I was in bed trying to get to sleep. I have to go to church tomorrow morning. All of a sudden I heard 2 cats meowing like crazy! They weren't fighting, it wasn't like that. It was more like um... well... ya know, making some woopy. Not only did I start laughing hilariously, but I decided I absolutely had to get up and post that everywhere. Oh, the hilarious things of life.

I managed to get back to church today.

After missing 3 weeks in a row, I managed to get myself up and to church. It's weird being gone from church for a while, and then when you come back, you tend to have a different perspective on things.
Last night, at like 9:00, I heard a knock on my door. Turns out, my dad was here checking on me, because mom was trying to get a hold of me, and my phone died. I had absolutely no idea it died, until I heard the knock at my door. Lol the phone never rang, so I just assumed no one was trying to call me. It never rang, it never went off. I usually don't check my phone, unless it rings or goes off.

13 Things I'm looking forward to.

OK so I haven't participated in Thursday13, and I've pretty much failed my own attempts at making lists on Thursdays, (often, they were shorter than 13 items.) So I've decided to start participating again. I may not participate every week, (I'll try!) but I'll definitely do this every other week or so, (provided I'm not having a huge headache at the time.) Anyway, after all that, I decided to make a list of 13 things I'm looking forward to, in no particular order.
  1. My Amazon rewards card getting here,! I applied for it last week, so it should be here soon.
  2. Starting my Shopify store, (getting the card wil enable me to do that.)
  3. Getting a premium theme for My Viz Adventures!just FYI, I might participate in future TT's with that blog as well, (don't worry, it's me!)
  4. Getting a premium Shopify theme.
  5. Starting a podcast again! I think I'm going to turn TechSpazz into a podcast.
  6. Getting managed WP hosting, so I can have all my blogs in one place!
  7. Participating in April A to Z, here on the personal blog, and Ultimate blog challenge, on my business blog.
  8. Starting more blogs!
  9. The trip our family is taking to go to my brother's wedding in July.
  10. Not having as many headaches! Ever since the neurologist put me on a muscle relaxer, I haven't woken up with a headache for the past couple days.
  11. Making a list of 10 things each day, this is just happens to be today's list! So far, the lists have led to at least one blog post, I'm going to start posting more of them. Some will be here, (like the bigger list that I'm in the process of making,) others will be on the other blogs.
  12. Reviving a couple no-longer existing memes. If you've tried to visit thatsmyanser.com recently, you'll notice that it doesn't exist. I have plans to revive that, (but on a different domain,) I really like the concept of asking a daily question, so much so, that I'm doing it here on 43 things. That, and WFMW, (although I might call it something else,) because I like reading tips/lifehacks that other people have had success with.
  13. Finishing re-adding all my feeds to The Old Reader, I had an account there a few months ago, (but I didn't like the old design,) I really do like the new one, so I signed up again.
  14. Trying Lectio Divina! I've made a commitment to try it during Lent.
Oh, just a little tip, I changed my Blogger display name, back in January. I previously used my given name, ("Noelle,") online, but "Hope" is what I'd change my name to if I could, so I'm now using that online.

I'm starting lent today.

OK OK, I don't normally observe Lent. It's something that is looked upon as old-fashion in the evangelical tradition. Lol but I don't agree with every tradition, and this is one of them. I've never observed Lent before because it wasn't encouraged in my church. Lol but that doesn't mean I can't do it myself!
This year, I'll be giving up Soda and fast food. I'll also be trying Lectio Divina, something that we evangelicals don't practice at all. Lectio will be a bit of a challenge for me, that's Ok though, I always embrace challenges! The reason why it will be a challenge, is because I'm going to have to memorize the verses I pray. I can't just read through right there, (unless I have an app or a Kindle book.
i'm also going to commit to blogging here more during Lent! I want to do this at least twice weekly. I'd actually like to do it 3 times weekly, but I'm starting with twice just to be sure it's actually something I can commit to.
