Ok, I know today is usually "No Function Friday" where I show you a craft that has nothing to do with organization or decor or greeness (is that a word?) or small home living or anything like that (did you even know that was the purpose of my blog? LOL Probably not, since it's been awhile since I've been able to post about those things with all the craftiness and Halloweeny and all going on) but I don't have a craft ready today to show you. Sorry! :(
BUT....I do have a couple things to share today!
First...WE DID IT!!!! As of this morning when I logged on....we hit 70 followers!!!!!!
Seriously, I know I'm a goofball and I joke around alot....but I truly mean it when I say....THANK YOU!!!
It is a heartfelt thank you!! I appreciate each of you who take time to spend with me, comment on my blog, have side email conversations with me, inspire me through your own blogs...these things make my day, my week, my month!! :)
With all seriousness, being a single mom (or just single for that matter) can sometimes be a lonely world. Almost everyone I know is married...so they forget or don't know what it's like to be alone all-the-time (even my family doesn't live here). And most of my adult connections are at work...which is a place that more and more I'm struggling with. The atmosphere has changed since I started 8 years ago and I no longer enjoy my job. I dread getting up and going into work. I'm tired of driving 50 miles a day (round trip) across the city and dealing with the traffic.
So, THIS, my blog and each of you, allow me to connect to people who do and love...what I do and love!! My blog, and each of you, give me something to look forward to every day. I check my email with excitement each morning and throughout my days...because no matter how much I want to give the finger and walk out of my job ;), I can always go to my Google Reader or check my gmail account and 'disappear' for a minute to a world I feel comfortable and connected to. Instead of sitting alone in the evening, flipping through my favorite home decor magazines while watching HGTV, I have a connection now to actual people, who are like living home decor magazines. :)
So, again, I just wanted to say THANK YOU!
Ok, no more Sappy Sue!!
Moving on to more exciting news!!!
You've heard me talk before about my good friend, Martha, from A Real (Upstate) New York Housewife, well when I opened my email this morning, sitting there in my inbox from Martha was the most beautiful and thoughtful gift ever!!!
Yep, that's right peoples!! Martha made me my own blog button! I'm all official now!! I feel like I've got my own badge of honor!!!
THANK YOU MARTHA!!! Isn't she just the sweetest! I've encouraged you before to check her out. She is spreading her wings in the blogging community!! :)
Well, that's it folks! Don't forget to go here and enter for my giveaway for hitting 70 followers!! And if you feel like (but not required) I'd appreciate any and all feedback on my first craft show item! :)
Have a great weekend!!!
Until next time...
