Wow! I was quite surprised to see the blog changes this morning when I logged on. What does everyone else think about them? I already miss the long list of all the recent blog entries.

The truth is change is good. It can be uncomfortable at first, but we adapt. We come to a new normal. As a family, we are going through change right now as we get used my husband/the girls dad not being at home as much. We miss him greatly, but we learn to look forward to his phone calls by skype and cell phone. (He's still in the states, but is out training)And skype is pretty fun!

Change applies to finances, too. Sometimes we have big goals we desire to attain, that require change and sacrifice. I remember a time when we didn't have cell phones, caller id, or newspaper delivery because we need that money to pay bills and debt. It was a minor change for us, but it was worth it! Other times, the financial change is a loss of a job. That can feel devastating and overwhelming, but after you grieve you move on, looking for work, and/or adapting your lifestyle to fit into the income available.

Change actually is a constant. If you look back on your life, you can point to numerous thngs that have changed. For example, I no longer live with my parents! I've married and had two children. Those are big changes. And more will continue to come as my children grow and move on with their lives. It makes for an interesting journey at the very least!

How do you respond to change?

    I usually can adapt to change just fine, but not when it makes things harder for me. I've always found the format of the second page of blog entries absolutely impossible for me to weed through. I do NOT like the summaries under the blog title. The simple listings work much better for me. I know I'm not alone in this. I wont be able to catch up and read other members blog entries with this format. That's quite disappointing.

    I am pretty adaptable to change. Which makes life easier, for sure.

    But I agree with a lot of the comments. I really liked the old format which listed all the recently updated blogs (without any more info than title and blogger). I really don't like the new format and makes it harder to keep up on the blogs, yes. I have never found the second page very useful. I figure - o"h well - I missed a few blogs," rather than weed through it all.

    I just noticed that part was fixed, too. Just need to scroll down a bit to see them on the left. Thanks for listening Nate!

    I see my paragraph's from this blog post are correct now, too! It didn't correct previous posts from what I can tell.
