Well, I changed to private. Thank you for those who emailed me with their addresses to ask to come along. I went ahead and sent some invites to others that I had addresses for who I know read here occassionally.
I know there has been speculation about why I'm going private and some concerns. It really wasn't that big of a deal ...except on a personal level. Family issues have made it necessary. I was censoring everything I wrote out of concern over who was reading my blog (from my family) and how they were A) interpreting the information and B) how they'd use that information.
When family fueds begin ... nothing is sacred, so it seems. Respect goes out the window. I'd have to admit the lack of respect goes both ways, I've lost all respect for those I'm no longer on speaking terms with, and I seriously doubt that it will ever be reconcilled, but ... it must be that way for me to be the healthiest person I can be.
I would never be able to look myself in the eye if I did not stand up for right when such blatant battle of right and wrong was at stake.
I may blog more in detail about this, if I need some catharcis, I may stay to myself on it, just depends on what the writer in me needs to do. I will answer questions though as I realize this is a bit cryptic.
