Do You Have Issues?
A whole week has went by without a single issue sent in and I take that as a good sign. This must mean everyone out there in the Blogosphere must be at peace and content for the time being.

Almost a year ago I started this blog for all the wrong reasons. After belonging for years in a long-standing Forum Group some weird, tacky, wacky and hacky things started happening to all of the members after a flame war went down. As owner of the group I tried to solve it and find out who was playing the childish head games. Thus the blog title, "Do you have Issues?" It was a sad attempt to solve a very pitiful situation.

After things cooled down it seemed Google had picked up this blog and I was getting a bunch of "Dear Abby" type emails and comments from people having issues from all over the world. At first I tried to shake it, but then realized that everyone has issues from time to time and kept the title. I've changed a few things and added a few others and the blog just grew and evolved to where it's at today.

Looking back through some of my archives this morning I realized that left unmentioned are many of my own issues over this past year. In particular the serious ones such as my Mom's battle against Breast Cancer and my own scare a few months back. Financial problems, car troubles, house repairs, work, family and relationship issues. In my "Margie Unplugged" segments I let a little of me out, but I tend to keep the bigger things tucked away safely, secretly and privately.

There's a part of me this morning that says this is misleading and I should spill some more, even if only to inspire, encourage and help another go through a similar issue.

Then there is that other part of me with a big huge zit at the end of my nose, that is already sore from the onset of spring allergies so I sneeze. In doing so I fart so loudly that the dog runs out from underneath my chair in fear for his life and knocks over anything in his path. The phone rings and the answering machine picks it up, my Mom is calling just as my daughter who is riding her new bike in the house slams it into the 30 gallon fish tank. The light drops in and without thinking I reach in to fish it out and end up flying 15 feet backwards because I didn't unplug the stupid thing first.

My life isn't full of issues. No. It's full of chaos, crazy and totally unbelievable happenings. Y'all wouldn't even believe me if I told you. So I beg of you - write in and give me some issues. I crave some normalcy!

    The "big huge zit" chain of events cracked me up this morning Margie! Thanks for the smile :-)

    Miz Margie, I got an issue to post, however, my network computer won't let me post it, so here goes! I want to know why a lot of people think that Southerns are big, dumb, and stupid? All areas of this country have persons who match that description. In most of the movies, and tv shows, we are stereotyped as bumbling boobs (double breasted) or hayseeds (straw hats) with B. S. (BBQ Sauce) for brains. I know you like living in the South, so what's your take on this?

    If you ever run into some of the issues that you have posted and can take pictures of them with a description...send it on over and I will post it on my blog with honorable mention.

    I love your blog by the way. I read it most everyday, although I am more of a lurker and less active here.

    My whole life right now is one big issue! Where do I begin? Lets just not go there.

    I just wanted to say thank you, because your blog posts gives me a perspective on things I generally don't get anywhere else....

    Don't worry about what to post...just keep it comin' you are doing great the way you are now!
