I’m an amazing liar

It’s true, I’m an amazing liar. I’m not talking about in a bad way, just not really elaborating. You know when someone asks how you’re doing and you respond quickly with “oh, I’m good and you?” I’m not talking about every day people. Not the woman at the bus stop also wrangling her children making idle chatter. Not the cashier ringing up your groceries trying to fill the void while you’re wondering if you can afford that bag of chips you grabbed to eat hiding in the bathroom later. I’m talking about family and friends you don’t see on a regular basis.

After you answer they just stare at you, waiting and hoping you’ll get into how life has been, but how can you when your answer of “good” was nothing more than a lie. The last couple months “good” has been my response to everyone. “How’s the new apartment?” “It’s good.” “How’s the family?” “Everyone’s good.” “How’s school going for Khloe and Keira?” “It’s going good.” Just to change it up and dare we say fine, or even great to throw them off.

I won’t lie life is well good. It’s average, but amazing, insane, but beautiful. A lot has happened since I last posted. I wanted to post, but you might have noticed my blog was down. I wasn’t happy about, nor was it something I wanted to do. Due to the horrible WIFI at the shelter I didn’t have a good enough connection to update my WordPress and someone decided it was the perfect time to take advantage of the weakness and uploaded malicious files. My host took my blog down, locked me from doing anything other than deleting and backing up my files and with limited connection it was nearly impossible.

If you’re not familiar with WordPress there is a simple option to back up and download the file that stores your posts, comments, images, sidebar information and more and unfortunately I had not done one in a while and I had no access to do one now. I had to manually back everything up and when I manually restored it I was getting error messages or crashing my blog, so that’s why it’s a bit messed up and there is nothing in my sidebars. I’m hoping to find the time to get it all fixed, but time is something I don’t have much of. In the next few days/posts I’ll update on how life has been and how it’s going.
