Hi. (she says apprehensively wondering if anyone is still out there after an entire 15 days with nary a peep)
It would be so out of character for me to just pop in and say “Hi!” all exclamation points and cheeriness assuming that my beloved readers have seriously waited a return. I’m much more comfortable assuming that you’ve all moved on to other very cool blogs.
I just checked my stats and it seems like about 24 of you check in still. Interesting. I never check my stats. Apparently I should because it seems that I had one heckuva popular day back in January. Over 900 people (meaning 918. If it would have been 978 I would have said, “nearly a thousand people”. See how I roll?) popped in on my modest little blog to check out my sharpie’d earrings. That’s weird, right? I can right about a bazillion things under the sun but pull out my kids felts and colour on some earrings and I hit it big! Makes me wonder what people are really searching for on this here ol’ internet…
You (all 24 of you – love you guys!) may have noticed that my photo a day went photo away. Yeah. I got to 177 days and then something happened. I think some people might call it “life” or something. But I had a few things going on that seemed just a tad more important than documenting my morning coffee cup or how much the lawn has grown this week. (dang rain!) So while I love taking pictures and I loved the challenge of taking one every day – I had to get a little bit real and realize that my life ain’t all that exciting and there are more important things. (for the record, I knew this all along. I’m just making up important sounding reasons as to why I’ve sorta given up without admitting that I just forgot one day…and the next…and the next…)
I keep thinking that it’d be way cooler to do a photo a day if I lived in Paris or volunteered in an orphanage in Kenya or even just left my house every day! But sometimes I don’t.
Don’t get me wrong, I love the life that God has given me and I am on a journey that I think is exciting, rewarding and superfantabulous. That just doesn’t always come across in the photos. So maybe that’s my next challenge. *shrug*
What else. Let’s see. Oh – I read a book! Yes I did. In one week flat. It’s amazing what you can accomplish when you don’t blog. I also went to yoga three times in one week as opposed to never, so that’s good. I watched a lot of Hayden’s baseball games and loved every minute of it. I watched a lot of hockey games on tv and also loved every minute of it, which if you know me I get sounds weird but I’ll expand in another post. This is just a rambling post really about nothing but the gist of my life that you’ve missed in the past few weeks in case I somehow complete you and you’ve been all thrown off cause I haven’t been here. ha. that’s funny stuff.
Oh, and in case you were wondering why there’s a random photo of me up there holding a cute little munchkin it’s because I just found it on iphoto and I thought, “aaawww, isn’t he the cutest thing ever?” Okay, that’s a lie. I mean, he is the cutest thing ever but I’m way more self absorbed than that and what I really thought was, “ooh, me with bangs! I should get bangs again!” My hair stylist says no. I say yes. What do you say?
over and out.
