.oO(anyone still here?)
Not that I'd blame anyone for not hanging around. It's truly no one's fault but my own. I haven't exactly been the best bloggy friend in the world. There's no way I can say that it's because there's nothing to say, because I have plenty I could be talking about, a whole year's worth infact. However, I just haven't felt like it compounded with the addiction (which got worse as I got introduced to 3 other games... *sigh*). I keep saying that I'm going to weed a couple of them out but I can't seem to choose which 2 to toss. I mean the one game has alotta time invested, while 2 of the other 3 seem to be a tad more interesting at this point...
I'd like to take a moment to thank everyone who came in to wish ranger (hubby) a Happy Birthday. He wanted me to pass along his thanks. :)
I've been trying to get around to the blogs as I can. It's pretty sad when some that you'd never miss end up having entries into the double digits that you need to catch up on! Now that Idol season is over, I won't be reading those other 3 sites as much because I'm not needing to keep on top of things as much. That cuts down on about 85% of the reading I do daily. I got through about half of them the other night. Going to try and get another 20-30 entries read before going into
As I was catching up, I came across a certain blog that pretty much took aim at friends that disappear and choose other hobbies over this. Sorry, I don't deal with snark like that too well. You'll noticed I stopped commenting and I haven't read a single blog entry after that. I probably won't either. I'm sorry you take offense at what I do as a hobby and I'm sorry you're hurting, but that wasn't cool. Next time, try dropping a line if you feel I've been too quiet. Others have, and I answered as soon as I got their note. All I know is when I find something a small group of us would enjoy, I make sure to include you in the emails. You haven't bothered participating when we get going on stuff like that. As for my "friends" on the other site, yes the list is substantial and no I don't talk to all of them... but there are a great many I ~do~ manage to talk to every day. Again, best bet... drop me a line there. I answer all those daily as well. In fact, it's the first thing I do when I get in. Oh wait, you can't, because you aint bothered to send a friend request even though we have a few common friends. Ah well. Your loss. Yea, I know I could always send one along... but after that snark, I don't think I'll bother. Oh and your commenting ~when~ I drop a post... well you don't do it all the time because from January to May I was dropping at least twice a week over in Styx Picks and I haven't seen you over there not once, although I know for a fact you watch the program. *gets off soap box*
As for the Mommy bloggers, I'd like to apologize. I don't often comment on your blogs simply because you have something I've been wanting. I know you're proud of your kid and it is YOUR blog to do with as you see fit, however it's really hard to visit when I don't have one of my own and there's only so many ways that I can say "oh how cute" or "how absolutely darling". However, you bloggers are actually why I needed to drop this post today. I was attempting to catch up in my magazine reading (which fell behind when we moved and never really caught up on) and I saw a link in Redbook that y'all may enjoy. I read the first few entries and was simply in stitches. Yeah, it's alotta kid based stories, but funny is funny no matter how it's delivered. The blog is called Mommy(and Daddy)Lingo and it has story upon story about the funny stuff parents end up having to say to their kids (one is titled "Um, stop making Batman kick your pee pee"). She's only got 11 followers at the moment. Well, 12 if you count me but I'm in private right now. Anyhow, I thought you ladies might just enjoy some of it, it's a good read.
Gotta go. I have a project I need to get done and a package to get ready to go out tomorrow or the next day. A surprise that I cannot talk about until the recipient gets the package. At that point, most of what I want to talk about just might decide it's time to be written.
