Okay.....I am moving.  Yankee-Chick is alive and well and you can find her here:


So delete Mama Monroe from your Google Reader of what ever method you use to follow, and add Yankee Chick back.  :)

Here's the Deal

I think I need to change my identity.  I need to revert back to the whole Yankee Chick scenario.  I was trying to start fresh a few months ago by blending my Mama Monroe persona with the blog thing, and it's just not right.  It doesn't work for me.  Mama Monroe is my Roller Derby name and Roller Derby is all about my family and Alaska friends.  I will always be Yankee Chick and in the World of Blog, I need to return to that.

Not that there won't be much ado in my blog regarding Roller Derby....there certainly will!! And although there will be much redundancy between FaceBook and my blog, the bulk of my FB friends and posts revolve around Derby and Mama Monroe type stuff.  It's hard to explain, so I'll stop trying.  Suffice to say, Yankee Chick is back....and it might involve a move, to either a new blog or back to my old one.  I'll probably figure that out tonight, and steer y'all in the right direction.

In fact, now that I've informed you of this decision....I think I'll go play around and will let you know what I decide :-)

Poolie Sent Me

Yes she did, indeed.  I'd pretty much given up on this whole blog thing, but it does still haunt me  I mean, the urge is still there a Viagra for blogging???  Hahahaha  Maybe now that I'm getting close to the end of some rough times, I can find more upbeat things to write about.  I felt that all my posts have become negative, but my life has been pretty damn negative for quite some time.  That is simply the way of it!

I do have some upcoming events that will certainly put a positive spin on things and I do need to write about them, right??

First up is my trip to San Diego next month, to spend a week with Poolie and Terri T.  It's been 2 years since we were last together and it's high time to meet up again! 

After that, I will be going to Alaska for a month. Leaving April 20th and returning May 23rd.  I totally can't wait for that!!!  There will be love and hugs and roller derby and fun and movies and fun food and roller derby and hugs and more love and more roller derby and exciting stuff!!!!!!!!

And THEN, on June 11th, I will have my long awaited surgery.  Bionic hip #2 and after my recovery from that, I am hoping and praying and wishing for a far better quality of life than I have had in 3 years!  Or has it been 4???  Too freakin long, that's for damn sure!

So, this is a start.......I will elaborate more on those things and other stuff as well, in the days to come.  I have lots of Roller Derby news and pictures to share.....and I'm sure I'll come up with other things.....I just know it.  And I need to do some new pictures and some tidying up around this here blog page, too.  See ya soon!
