Website over Capacity

uh-oh  The last few days my website has fluctuated between working fine into it’s stuck and won’t go anywhere. My “resources” are at max something. I have no idea what that means but I bought more resources from Godaddy. I was told this is a good thing it means that I am getting a lot of visitors that are staying on here to read a bunch of posts.


My rankings are:

Global Rank 1,581,224 and Rank in United States 419,063

Is that good? I have no idea. I think it’s good but what do I know? I also don’t care but the analytical people told me it’s important to know how my website is ranked and how much time people spend on it. It said the average visitor spends 5 minutes per day here. Really? I hope I’m making it entertaining. I believe my average website visit to other websites is around 30 seconds Lol I click, read, click off.

A lot of people did not listen to the voicemails. Or they may have only listened to a few. The audio is not the greatest so having them transcribed is helping out. It’s also making people want to re-listen to them again. That’s why my website is being so crazy. I appreciate your patience. I do believe the issue has been $$$resolved$$$ and we are good on resources, whatever those are.

As you may have noticed my Twitter is full of the updated links to the voicemails. Lindsay set that up a week ago using the Buffer app. I’m not actually posting those. They are on a schedule, they go in groups of 10 at a time per hour then a break then 10 more go off. She has randomly picked the times so I don’t have any set schedule. All the voicemails have my summaries on what the conversations were about as well as some new and updated information. Be sure to check those out if you are interested.

When those are all done, I’m going to be posting the last text messages I have. The break up texts. And then this story is finished. We all know the ending, anyway.

Or do we? Lol


ASL? I’m back in 7th grade

19 We are having a great time at the lake house. The girls picked their rooms, picked out what they want done with it and the plans will begin Monday morning. The contractor has 1 week to get everything done they wanted before we all return next weekend. It shouldn’t be that hard. We managed to already buy all of the stuff. He has to get his crew in to install it and paint. We will be going back to the condo Sunday night.

Thus begins the double life of my twins. Downtown city boys through the week, country gentlemen on the weekends. When they are older we will start traveling on weekends so they can learn about American History and visit where I grew up so they see where their family roots came from. Won’t take long since the only 2 places I grew up were in Nebraska and Texas.

It’s interesting to me how many people want to talk to me. I do my best to keep in touch but lately I have fallen so far behind I can’t remember if it was my turn to write back. Sleep deprivation is doing a trick on my mind. I am not a forgetful person at all. In fact my memory skills are 4 star Black belt level. I can recall entire conversations with a little help to my mind started on the memory of it.

I’ve learned a lot about relationships and life experiences. I love hearing stories. I always have questions. Fascinating stuff. Someone sent me this they found on a website and asked me to fill it out to learn the basics.

March 2, 2015 – My 42nd Birthday

0042 0050 0935 0938I had deleted all of my Twitter direct messages because she told me to. She didn’t want incriminating evidence. But what I had forgotten was all of these Twitter notifications went into my email. Which I pushed into a Twitter folder. That’s why I have these. It shows how we started talking to each other privately on Twitter DM. I screenshotted them to make it easier to read because on my phone it’s so small I couldn’t tell what it says.

After talking with Meri and one other person the night before, the night flipped into the next day. It was my 42nd birthday. Meri followed me on Twitter. I followed her back. She left me a direct message thanking me for a fun night. And to me that was it. I didn’t think we would talk anymore on twitter. I went to bed.

The next day I went into work and she direct messaged me again. Just wishing me a happy birthday. I said Thanks, you are very intriguing to me. That was all. Again, thinking okay well that was really nice of her. Now, that’s it, we won’t talk again.

I worked all day. Then she sent me another direct message later that evening. And we started talking for the next 8 hours. Up until 2:00am my time. At this point I was in Yukon Oklahoma living in my house and working in my OKC office. She was in Las Vegas so it’s a 2 hour time difference.

Here are some of the other direct messages. I’m working on getting my side to fit into between so you can see the whole conversation. I have to do one side at a time to figure out the time of each message.

633 634 634a 635 637 638 640 641 644 645 646 650 651 651a 653 654 655 655a 656 656a 657 657a 658 658a 658b 659 659a 659b 701 701a 703 708 713 717 720 720a 722 723 724 725

I teased her late into the night and said you should call me and tell me Happy Birthday. It was a joke that went back and forth. I gave her my cellphone number. And she called me at 2:31am my time. We talked for 4 minutes.

This was our beginning. It was not what I was looking for. I was not expecting to become friends with her. And I did not target her. This was me, talking to a new friend. I have never cared that she’s Meri from tv. In fact it was harder that it was Meri from tv than if it was just Meri from Las Vegas. What we had was a very fast connection. It took us both by surprise. And it was awesome!
