Howdy, Folks!

Holy God........I last posted a "Deep Thought" on January 19th, 2011.  That was right about the time my very artfully crafted *CHOKING* world started falling apart.  And frankly, there really was nothin' too funny about it and I wasn't feeling particularly eager to share the details of what went down.  Let's just suffice to say that when a 23-year long relationship that involves a child ends, it is gut-wrenching.  Soul crushing, confusing, primal-scream get the picture.  The bottom line is that while I surely have had plenty a Deep Thought over the past year and some change (literally and figuratively), I'm not actually Mollie Christie anymore.  I gave the "Christie" part back to that guy.  It's McKennie now.  Mollie McKennie is a perfectly good name.  A rollicking kind of name really.  Or the name of some woman who's cow tips over a lantern and burns down Chicago.  Something like that.  *NOTE TO SELF* BUY COW.  I think I'd name it "Bossy".  And get it a bell.  Then I'd be "That Nice Divorced Lady With the Cow". But I digress.  Isn't it nice to have me back to digressing again?  Of course it is! It must mean I'm feeling much better.  Which I am.  WAY. Or maybe I'm just used to NOT being better.

I will say this:  when the proverbial shit hits the fan, you really DO find out who your friends are.  I had a set of parents and a few very close friends who literally held me together when I didn't think I could do it myself and who helped me realize that I in fact COULD.  There's some duct tape and glue involved but I'm still here.  Yay, me and yay, Mom and Dad and yay, faithful companions with both two legs and four.  

I'm not really sure what's going to happen to "Deep Thoughts" but I thought I would post something as I was (and remain) somewhat fascinated to look at the "Sitemeter" (a handy measuring tool for us blogging types) and find that people still read this stuff.  Amazin'.  Gots to go peeps........real estate to sell (we will have another blog about THAT with all kinds of handy tips and polite language and other fascinating information comin' at you hot fairly soon), cows to buy, etc., etc.
