Blog-oh-versary

What She Wore: Khaki courderoy pants; long-sleeve, ribbed ecru shirt; black boots.

Well, featured or not, this has been a pretty momentous week for me.  This week my blog turned one.  As I look back ( you shouldn’t, it’s scary), I realize how much has changed since I started this little blog.  In the beginning I stuck to three distinct categories–friends, family, work.  I quickly realized that not every day will provide a person with news about their friends and family.  And I left something out: what I was thinking.
 
This blog has given me a lot.  It provided me with an outlet while my husband was deployed.  It helped me deal with a lot of the anger I felt in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.  It continues to help me improve my writing skills.  What a great deal, huh?  And besides all that, every week amazing people from all over this country (and Canada) come and visit! 
 
It’s been a good year.  Thanks to all the people who stop by and keep me going!

In one summer I had a baby who was hospitalized for five weeks, quit my job, and moved back to my hometown. This blog is about starting over.

    Featured or not, it is a pleasure getting to know you, and I do enjoy your site!  I have the Live Writer now, a friend left the link for it at my site…yippee… and I will figure out how to use it.  You are the third person that has told me it is finicky…lol…so I will take that seriously!  When I looked in my Options and Customize, there wasn\’t a choice for Weather, and I don\’t know why.  I just upgraded to the Beta Messenger and wonder if that will make a difference.  Thanks for your imput and friendship!

    It is the whole bathroom thing.  Germs and people not washing hands after going and then touching things….Ughhh!
     
    BTW – How did you not get tagged?  I think you should have to do this just on principle. 😉

    OMGosh!  Just as I  thought…..here huni…some duck tape.  I figured you\’d need it for some offending lips 😉 .  If you notice, the name ends with a ? ….. Identity crisis going on?  Apparently you hit a nerve that was a little too close to home for him.  And I have every faith that God (the one NOT having identity issues) has provided us the means to resolve this offense….delete, delete, delete.  I hope you are having a peaceful evening.
