I have had it with Dreamhost. They are now telling me that I have overused my bandwidth & disk space. Hmm….I use about 1.32gb bandwidth & less then 1000mb space currently. So it isn’t me. It has to be someone else on my server. But they are not listening to me. So I shall leave. I have been with them since 2004 that is six years, so you would think they would listen to me when I say something or at least explain things to me. So I did some digging & from the last time I was looking I came across Holdfire but they were still what I considered a “new” host, but they are now not so “new” & I figure that they should have worked the kinks out, lol. Plus, it gives me a change to bug the devil out of Jordan while I am at it, lol. Just kidding. I honestly prefer to handle everything myself & let the host just keep the site up & remind me to pay the bill, lol.

I was thinking of changing the domain name, but the more I thought about it, the more I just couldn’t change it. But I am going to be changing some things. No longer am I going to have a sub-domain for my blog. My hosting on Dreamhost is paid up until Feb. 7th & hopefully I will have everything moved by then if not then I will pay for another month. But once everything has gotten moved I will change the blog to tigerwhispers.com & the name to Tiger Whispers. I have lots of ideas to implement since I don’t have the weight of trying to create my own themes now. I can just edit & add the CSS codes that I need to add to them. That makes it a lot easier on me to handle. Now all I have to create is my QBee quilts & even those I just have to make the graphics for & that is easy for me.

My goal is a stress free hosting system & I am hoping Holdfire will handle that for me. So I am going to start it in the morning. Once you see the blog moved to tigerwhispers.com then you will know that the hosting move has been successful & I haven’t blown anything up, lol.

Oh, any tips or help with CPanel would have apprieciated.

**Oh, I also don’t have to leave the QBee. The Queen Bee herself says that it is ok & goes along with the rules.**

My mother’s infection has gone to the bone. They will do a MRI on the toe & on the sore that is on the other foot tomorrow. So now the only thing left to do is wait until it heals up enough for the surgeon to remove the toe. With her diabetes & her weight they are saying that it is a dangerous surgery & that she could be in the hospital for a while. They say she has a good chance of making it through the surgery, but like with all surgery there is a chance. This is not good. My mother is the one that holds this family (even if the family argues & sounds like we all hate each other) together. We honestly don’t know what to do without her. So if she is in the hospital I have no idea what is going to happen at home. Father & I will either try to kill each other or the house may explode, lol.

The two dogs are the other thing. Their world revolves around Mom. That is going to be interesting. Shiloh will not know what to do without seeing Mom everyday. He is going to be very vocal about his unhappiness also. I wonder if we could sneak a 15lb. Schnauzer & a 10lb. Bichon Frise into the hospital to see her? Hmm…I’ll have to think about that.

As for me, I haven’t been more then a week without seeing her every day. Though I imagine I will handle it a lot better then father. They haven’t been apart for the last 32 years longer then three days, lol. Daddy is going to go crazy. But if he thinks that he isn’t going to be taking me to see her most every day he is full of it. I am not going to leave my mother in a hospital (the same bloody hospital that let my beloved Grandmother die) he is full of it.

So for the next month or so I will be online every day like normal, but I will not be active like I usually am. This came at a good & bad time. With the drama that is going on (things need to cool down) & with my mother I need some time just to relax. Since I refuse to take the blame for something I didn’t do or start, I would also like to say that this in no states that I am wrong in any way. I refuse to get stressed out over people acting like five year olds & can not get over something. I also refuse to justify every little thing I type on Twitter or Facebook. I live in a free country that allows me to type & say what I choose to. If you don’t like then that is your problem. You have just the same right as I do so stop trying to infringe on my rights.

The bad timing is that it is the beginning of Tax Season & Dad needs her at the office since I can’t work because of my seizures. If she is in the hospital then Dad has to handle the tax work & the bookkeeping all by himself. We handle over 800 tax returns every year. That is a lot of return for a single person to handle along with all the clients that he does the book work for. But if there is one thing that we do very well is that we survive everything that life throws at us. Though I have to admit that I wish it wouldn’t so hard all the time.

I have finally completed LULOC. I am a little disappointed in how it turned out, but my buyer is will be happy with it. I am now working on the bookmarks for the Pages Book Club & Jem’s Baby Present. No, you don’t get to see pics of her present cause I know that she will come peeking & I want it to be a surprise. So more likely Melly, Melissa, & Michelle will be the only ones that get to see it cause I know they keep secrets. But don’t worry, once I know Jem has gotten it you all will get to see it also. But I know that you are more interested in the pictures, so here you go. The completed pics of LULOC. As always if you click on the thumbnails, you can see the full size image.
