So inside I stay. However, thanks to that low-life freakazoid I was married to the first time around, I have this slight problem with my ears. You'd think that if I had ear problems, that the quiet that results from no power in the house would be a welcome thing. It's not. You see, with the fans going and the hum of the computers and the other equipment acts as a "white noise" and the ringing in my ears (which were fine until The Freak decided his hearing wasnt what it should be so he blasted things like the tv and radios at the highest possible levels instead of going to a dr and having his ears checked) isn't as noticable. When it's super quiet though, and not even the hum of a PC to offset it, well it becomes unbearably loud. It makes it near impossible to go to sleep when the power's out. Just another thing to add to my ever growing list of stuff to check at my yearly physical in August.
Anyhow. I got the following couple awards over the last week or two (or 3...) and need to get them posted. This first one I received before but I've now I seem to have received it twice over again. I don't mind, it's a very pretty award! This time I received it from Razors and Vines. I'm really thrilled she thought of me to be honest. My writing doesn't hold a candle to the way she expresses herself. I also snagged it from Yaya (who also bestowed the next award to all her followers as well)!
This next great award was received from Yaya and Queenie Jeannie (oh heavens, in looking for the link I see Jeannie gave the prior award to everyone too). Isn't it the cutest? There are rules and regs to this one but since everyone probably seen it already, I won't bother posting them. The one rule I WILL follow is answering the "Why do I blog?" question.
So, why do I blog? It started out as therapy...trying to get myself past the Decade from Hell. Then it kind of evolved into an account with several blogs attached to it. It turned into a dumping ground for jokes and Inspirational items that get emailled to me, a place to put sellable items, and a format to keep everyone informed. I got so sick of people saying "I didn't know". I still get that one now and then, but now I can say... "well if you'd read my blog, you would have known!" Well at least I could when I was updating regularly ~smiles~. Unfortunately, someone manages to grab me in the IM or on the phone and by the time I realize I hadn't actually posted about it...well days/weeks have gone by.
So I'm still having a problem now and again with certain blogs. Yes, iggy, they seem to be the ones with scads and scads of advertisements on them (you know who you all are!). Somedays I can read them via the usual method (IE) and other days I pretty much have to lurk or visit with my new friend FireFox. It's rather frustrating to have to jump between browsers to be honest. Really frustrating.
