Is everyone on the bus?

Here it is.  The first official post.  Get a cup of coffee and sit down for a while!

Ummmm, what should we talk about?  Why do feel so new at this?  I'm like a blogging virgin.

Nah, not really.  I'm like an old whore at this stuff so let r rip!

First up a HUGE thanks to Chris at Hubby Jack's Blog for the new design.  It looks fantastic and you were so patient with me and all my ridiculous questions!  If you haven't read Chris's blog yet, head over there.  Although if you are a woman that is easily offended you might not.  Then again, you are here and I just called myself an old whore so we should be all good.

I have been blogging on Pill's Place since September of 2006.  Yep, I'm one of those lifer bloggers that never really got anywhere.  I have no book deals, no one paying me any money to do any of this, no advertisers knocking on my door and I still have a day job.  Still, I write.  It's therapy.  As I said on my old blog, it's a place for me to drain my brain and you to read all about it.

So, what's in store on the new site?  Much the same I just wanted to freshen up a bit.  Us whores still want to look pretty you know!  The new name, if you know me you should be able to figure it out.  If you don't, well my last name is Ball and the jokes just never get old.  I'm in a household of balls, the only female in the joint...unless you count the dog, he lost his balls long ago.

Let's take a look around shall we?

First up, that's me in the left hand corner.  If you want to follow me anywhere else (Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook, etc) you can use those little links under my giant picture.  If you want to join the site you can do that too or you can have it emailed to you when I post an update.  If you like me enough, you can throw my button on your blog!

Now for the top bar.
Home: That's where you will find all posts, it's the page that loads each time you come here.

Finding Balance:  Any post I do with regards to my struggles to lose weight and find balance in my eating you will be linked on here (and also the Home page).  I've dieted most of my life.  I've always lost the weight and found it though.  At the end of September last year I did a cleanse.  You can read all about it here.  I then transitioned to a plant based diet and then over the holidays transitioned to a diet of shit on a shingle.  I put weight back on and have sense really come to terms with my addiction to food which you can read all about here.  I'm going for it again and contemplating a pretty drastic lifestyle change.

The Balls: Any post I do about my family will be linked on here (and also the Home page.)

Being Crafty: Any post I do with relations to crafts will be linked on here (and also the Home page.)

My Story: A little introduction to my family and I.

Blog Loving: Sites that I love to read, this is an ever growing list.

There you have it!  I hope you stick around and find something interesting along the way.  Oh and feel free to comment, I love comments.  Unless you are mean and anonymous, then you can go play in someone else's yard!


  1. Hey girl! Shit on a shingle was my diet if choice for a while too. New follower here. Stop by and check out my blog when you get a chance.


  2. Stacey,

    I just love your style of writing. It's honest, comical, straight forward, open, heart felt, sometimes straight from a trucker's mouth, etc . . . but it's YOU! You don't hide from what you are thinking.

    I have to admit, I'm sorry, I don't think I read everything you post, but I do try to read as much of it as I find time to.

    Although I have left the Sac area, it keeps me in touch with you, your life, & especially those adorable pictures of Layton.


  3. Just joining you here....better late than never!!! I'm a lifetime reader of yours!
