Nothing like a little spring cleaning

Ok so I think it’s technically summer, after a rather long day, the new site is up and I think I managed to import just about everything from the old site with about 7 minutes of hiccup time. 

My technical kung-fu is still kinda mighty. 

If you happen to notice something completely wonky, feel free to say so…you won’t hurt our feelings any.  There is one known issue where I’ve got to go back through all the posts and modify any external link that Anissa posted….unfortunately there’s no happy automagical way of doing it….it’s a manual process…of re-reading every post…over the past 2 years…anyone got a snickers? 

Happy blogging baby!



P.S.  Many thanks to the awesome open source people at simplephpblog, yetanotherphpguestbook, and gallery that have provided us a method to share our story over the past 2 years.  The great thing about opensource software is that you never know who will use it, or how it will be used.  They’ll probably never read this, but their work helped to start us on the road to recovery as a family. 

One of my greatest friends out there, Paul Carlucci asked what he could do to help when we were first diagnosed.  It might sound funny, but one of the first things on my mind was to get me off the phone with my family (no offense family…LOVE YA!).  It’s just that in those first few days, everyone and their sister was calling us non-stop for updates and to let us know they cared…I appreciated and needed the words and prayers, but after a while you wind up forgetting who knows what and repeating the same story or leaving out bits of info here and there…Paul found simplephpblog….and shortly thereafter our blog was born.

    I’m very much a creature of habit and I don’t do change well but when I signed on to check on the Mayhews today I was pleasantly surprised. I like the look and the changes aren’t huge so I guess this change is okay. As long as this site keeps me me giggling with a few tears mixed in I’m all for changing it up a little. Nice job!!!
