This is not my first time.

This is not my first blog, it is my fourth. I purchased my own domain for the last one, but shut it down after I got laid off from work and couldn't justify the expense.

I also needed some time to get my life back together.

I was fat and on unemployment. I wanted things to change and I felt that my blog could be a distraction. So I put it away until I felt I wasn't being irresponsible for having one.

That is was just how I felt about myself. I don't judge any other bloggers.

Does this mean I am no longer fat and unemployed? Yes, it does.

I am by no means skinny, but I have lost close to 50 pounds, and I feel much better about myself. Losing the weight has done wonders for my self-esteem, but getting off unemployment has done just as much.

This new blog will just be me sharing stories. Many of these stories will be about the little girl who gave me that shiny blue bottle in the profile picture.

I wrote this poem and posted it in one of my other blogs, but I think I'll post it here too. It just explains the way I feel about a red head that truly does have me wrapped around her little finger.

Green Eyes Red Hair

Green eyes, red hair
Tiny freckles everywhere
Green eyes, red hair
Born with attitude to spare

Green eyes, red hair
Clean your room and make the bed
Green eyes, red hair
I'll probably cry the day you wed

Green eyes, red hair
I love the girl that drives me mad
Green eyes, red hair
I thank the lord that I'm her dad

My 9-year-old daughter gave me a bottle for my birthday. She told me the shiny blue bottle was filled with her love. I'm not sure I'll ever get a better gift.
