Thanks to my friend, Jan, over at Jan’s Sushi Bar, I’ve decided to give this here posting every day thing a try, y’all.
It’s called NaBloPoMo,and I can’t believe how long it just took me to write that. Stands for “National Blog Posting Month”. You post something every day for a month.
And it’s damn hard.
I’m still scratchin’ my head y’all, and wondering what it takes to get comments. Well, lots of comments. Apparently, I ain’t got it. There’s this pair of old ladies that blog, Margaret and Helen, and the last time I checked, they had 478 comments on their last post! And no, they do not post every day. And as best as I can tell, they do not leave comments. Shoot. It must take them all day just to read the comments that they get. Nor do they post pictures. At all.
My best guess is that they are popular because they blog about politics. Me, I can’t even spell it. (Seriously, I just had to spell check it.)
That, and well, they’re funny. Yeah, that helps I suppose.
My whining post yesterday seems to have paid off, somewhat. I did get a few comments, although the one from my son calling me pathetic hurt just a little. But it did bring two of my friends, who had started new blogs without so much as a word to me about it ( I know! Can you believe it?) out of hiding. So now everyone (all five of you) run on over to A Tired Wife ( this is Debbie at Buzzin By, she got tired of buzzin’, y’all ) and Sandie Goes To Italy and check them out!
Oh no, wait just a cotton pickin’ minute.
Sandie and Debbie were two of my readers yesterday, so all four of y’all go check them out. While yer at it, check out Margaret and Helen, too. Pretty funny stuff.
Yesterday was day five of our Staycation. We went to Wrightsville Beach. It was one of those perrrrfect summer days. The water was an amazing color of blue.
The sky was so clear that you could see Carolina Beach from Johhny Mercer’s Pier! In my recollection, that has never happened!
Of course, Dani is so happy to be spending a few short weeks in North Carolina with her father and stepmom, to be doing all kinds of fun packed activities every single day, like going to the beach, taking expensive tours, shopping at the mall, having her nails done and going out to eat almost every single night, that she hardly ever has time to even check her cell phone for text messages.
I swear I’m going to do a post called “I Know What You Did Last Summer” and in it I’m going to post a picture of Dani texting her way through every activity that we have spent our hard earned money on, just to try and entertain her.
Who knew? We could have saved hundreds of dollars by just learning how to text!
That’s it! Next year we’ll just sit around the house for a month and text each other! Oh, and when we’re not texting, we can comment on each others Myspace and Facebook pages. Seriously.
Speaking of Myspace, why do all the kids have to post pictures of themselves with their tongues hanging out, like bad imitations of KISS? And what’s up with the peace sign?
On the way to dinner at my mom’s last night, we decided to try and distract the girls away from the constant texting by goofing around and taking silly pictures.
This is going to be my profile picture on Myspace when I get, you know, like, cool enough to do cool stuff like text and pose like one of them.
This is Jeff’s attempt at being a cool dad.
I’m not sure they ever actually stopped texting, but at least they laughed.
