Trip Down Memory Lane

So I looked back to my first posts - back when I thought I was actually going to blog about how much I like fitness and dieting...ha ha ha...that lasted all of not that long - granted I do like to try to keep in shape, but this blog has been so much more to me. 

Here are some of the things I have learned along the way.  Always comment back...even if you don't have time to comment - you can come back 6 months later and let fellow bloggers know you read and appreciate them.  It feels good to let bloggers know you lerk...they know you are there...but say something.

Also as blogging has grown there is a lot of meanness - there are cliques - but stand above that and all will be good.

Blogger is a pretty good platform as is wordpress.  I like each for different things.

If you decide to stop blogging for a while you can come back...the blogs will change and things will be different - but don't stop - take a break - but keep on keeping on - because depending on your goal it will work out.

You don't have to be everything to everyone - we appreciate honesty - put it out there...deny it later if it is that bad but don't be afraid of what others will yourself.

Small thing I have learned but hey it is a Sunday evening...time for bed.

Dooce Blog - Tweet and Poop

So I was reading my tweets today and yes doing some catching up and noticed this tweet from Dooce, "Why do I add all this artificial sweetener to my coffee? Because on my death bed I'd like to have a vague idea of why I'm lying there."

I think this is hilarious for so many reasons - and most of them have to do with poop and diarrhea.  Coffee makes me crap.  Every morning.  It does the job - now combine that with splenda and you have a real mess.

I hate to say it but in the blog world The Pioneer Woman and Dooce don't shit.  They are like the Britney and Paris of the Mom Bloggers - only way funnier, way more intelligent, and way more educated...okay you get the point...

Wait...okay - I am pretty sure I can imagine Britney pooping - nevermind all that above - I think I meant to say - Dooce and Pioneer Woman both get the media attention (online in the mom blog circle) of those two - but whatever...

But back to the point combining coffee and splenda - not a move I would expect from Dooce - then again she works out of her home so what does it matter?!  I mean on the weekends I am way more open about my breakfasts.  I will eat blueberries and chase them with coffee, or watermelon in the summer.  I would never do that on a work day.  I don't crap at work - that is just a general rule.

Funny that Dooce doesn't think that way.  One more reason to be a professional stay at home mom blogger to add to the list - pooping at home and adding whatever I want to my coffee.

Don't blog and drink at the same time

Today has been a frustrating day - but if you don't have anything nice to say then don't say anything at all - so....

On to less frustrating matters - matters of the boy.  My baby boy love reading and as any first time competitive mommy I take this as a sign of him being gifted.  His current favorite book - Ants in My Pants.  I tickle him at the end of every story too.  He loves it...I say "The End" and then I get him in his rolls.

I swear I am obsessed with my little matter what happens he is my dream guy.  I know it sounds familiar to all the moms out there...but babies are a gift from the heavens.  I don't know what I ever did before the little monster.

Chupacabra and Duct Tape An Award

Okay I would like to thank Pampers and Pinot for this award - and I might add that I haven't gotten an award in well over a year so this one is a special one - and just a bit of stream of consciousness here...because I don't have time for much more with a hubby in the shower and baby duty and the errands of a Sunday.  I know Pinot as I like to call her gave me this award because she loves me but I also think it was a sign because she wrote a post that went with the award that made me cry because it sounded just like words I would have written myself.  I think we were meant to be virtual bffs you see.

Pinot is going back to work and all her feelings are mine - down to the Citibank card which I also own with the ridiculous interest rate.

Penot! I love you.  And this award goes to:

The Winey Mommy


Spilled Milk

The Tarr Pit

What to do:
Thank the person who gave you the award.
Pass it on!
