Cologne accomplished…

We had a lot of fun in Cologne and I have plenty to write about in my travel blog. I’ll probably do that tomorrow, when I have more inclination to write. It’s almost 8:00pm now and we’re all tired. The dogs had a good time at their new pension, too. They were hanging out with a bunch of other beagles when we came to get them tonight.

So glad we took the time to see the Eagles! It was a fantastic show, probably one of the best concerts I’ve ever been to anywhere. I grew up on their music, but for a long time, people thought the band was totally finished. I’m glad to see the surviving members are still on their game. Deacon Frey, Glenn Frey’s super cute and talented son, is doing a superb job filling in for his father. Vince Gill was also fabulous! I look forward to writing up the show later.

I think I much prefer concerts in Europe. Seems like they’re less obnoxious… as long as you don’t have to drive to them when a Wasen is going on.


Daddy’s home!

I don’t really have a lot to write about today. Bill got home yesterday afternoon and we spent last night enjoying each other’s company. Consequently, I haven’t gotten any reading done… and although I could certainly continue venting about any number of issues, it seems like that wouldn’t be productive on such a peaceful morning. So, instead of writing drivel today, I think I’m just going to wish everyone a nice Sunday.

The boys were as happy to see Bill as I was!

It’s time for a new beginning…

Hello, all.  After almost nine years of blogging on Blogger.com, I have decided to launch a new version of The Overeducated Housewife.  To be honest, I’d been thinking about doing this for some time.  Although Blogger is very easy to use and costs me nothing, when it comes to privacy and security, it leaves something to be desired.  I have used WordPress before and I think it’s a bit more upscale and offers more tools.

I’ll probably continue to use the old sites for my travel and music blogs, at least for the time being.  The music blog rarely gets updated anyway, so I may just discontinue that blog at some point.  I was going to start a creative blog, but that project is on hold for now.  It’s simply time for a fresh start.

I probably should have changed the name of this blog, but I can’t think of anything clever off the top of my head.  And, as obnoxious as it is, The Overeducated Housewife is kind of my online identity. I can’t hide from it.

I can’t promise my posts will be any less contentious, controversial, or cranky on this site, but since my husband and one of his daughters have reconnected, I think it’s best to discontinue my original blog and start fresh.  There’s a lot of pain on my old blog that I’d like to ditch.  Besides, I was getting tired of looking at the Cliffs of Moher all the time.

I’m still getting used to this new format, so it may be awhile before this blog is very exciting.  I’m also giving some thought to starting a private Facebook group for The Overeducated Housewife, rather than running an open page.  My existing page doesn’t get much traffic, but it’s also not secure or private, and that is becoming more important to me lately.  If you have any interest in joining a private group for this blog, feel free to comment.  If I have enough people, I’ll start one.

Not long ago, we moved into a new home.  It’s time my blog got a new home, too.  Welcome to it.
