As it turn out, in a great example of irony, (also pointed out by Glen) I had MISSED THE OPPORTUNITY to renew my NMO address. Ahh universe, you jokey jokester you.
At first, I did not know this was the case and I assumed (as I do) that all my previous posts were lost to the deep recesses of the Internet. Not that I write prize winning stuff or anything but you know, one or two of them were funny... and I had spent all that time typing. So, I spent the next 30 seconds trying to hold back sobs as I considered the possibility that my blog disappearing was a sign that maybe blogging is better left to those with proper grammar and actual writing skills, followed by about 10 minutes of frantically sending emails, text messages, and facebook messages to the people I trust most with my blog and with my feelings.
Thankfully, Glen, Rhonda and Andrea had my back and helped me find my blog again. It took all of two minutes to purchase a new address and get my posts back. This solution left me with two questions- 1) how in the world are people supposed to find me if they can't get here using the old address, and they have no way of knowing the new one? and 2)What am I having for lunch today? (admittedly not related, but important nevertheless).

So there it is. Crisis averted-inconvenience notwithstanding. No Missed Opportunities has moved to http://www.katestaysuplate.com/ , which leaves me with one question: What am I going to have for lunch?
