Jilted...

Did you get your post card? It came in the mail today. Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion's January issue is its last. I feel kind of like I've been left at the altar or something. I checked out the website and saw that in October of '08 they were asking for a new publisher for the magazine. Evidently nothing worked out. Times are hard, I guess. The rest of my subscription is to be filled with Martha Stewart Living. I like Martha, but that isn't the same at all. Mom's Country Home subscription was just replaced by Traditional Home. Goodness... not the same at all. I don't really like the switch thing without asking, "Do you want your money back?" I suppose that's the way things go, but really... What would my kids think if they walked in to find some rapper was now their teacher? haha.. Wait, don't answer that one... I don't want to know!

P.S. Where is the snow they've been blasting about? It's 2:32 a.m., and I'm thinking it's not coming. No snow day for the weary tomorrow.. haha.. Did you ever meet a bigger "kid"?

What's up with the magazing crap? That's crap. I'm happy I didn't subscribe to Country Home last Fall like I intended. I haven't heard of Traditional Home. I've been getting my grandpa's subscription for Country. It's acutally kinda interesting. I wonder if your mom would like it. It's definitely NOT like Country Home, but it's interesting. Did I say that already? I'm in love with Bradley Cooper. Have you seen all the ads for ALL the movies he has coming out. OOOOHHHH, the new Kevin Costner in my life...

Mary Isabella and Kiley too! said...

If you enjoy checking websites, look at Jan Karon's website at www.mitfordbooks.com. The website shares pictures and information about her life, her books, and news about the book she is working on. I think you will like it!

The same thing happened to me. It is very frustrating,but I guess it is just one more sign of the times

I was in one of the mega bookstores yesterday looking for interior design/home decor mags and the choice was soooo limited. I too have been "given" some different choices to what I had paid for in subscriptions and am very aggravated. If I had wanted that magazine, I would have ordered it in the first place! I will really miss Country Home - one of my faves for years.
