This isn't EXACTLY how I imagined I would start off my 100th post (begging for forgiveness for lack of communication)... it isn't even the date I would have chosen to post my 1 year/100th post. I actually posted my first blog entry on Feb. 23, 2007 and today is my 100th post. I had planned a big give-a-way with a lot of fan-fare, balloons, confetti, drinks and plenty of food....but seeing how I've never posted anything remotely resembling...parties...confetti (well except that one time w/Maggie's birthday...but she's a dog...so does that really count?) food...drinks...(well maybe a few of those) and certainly never a give-a-way...why should my 100th post be any different.
I really am planning a give-a-way...I'm working on that little goodie as I type today...but life has a way of interfering with our "to do" lists sometimes...and well...I just had to revert back to my days of living life day to day...trying to just remember to breathe and when all else fails... PUNT...Yep...I'm going to "punt" today...hopefully by the next post I will have my give-a-way complete...and we can get that party started!!!! So fasten your seat belts folks...this could be FUN after all! Notice...I already have the table all set for the celebration!!! So warn all your friends, neighbors and fellow bloggers...there is about to be a GIVE-A-WAY.
My road blocks thus far have consisted of...being sick...yea...hubbin gave me his head/flu/cough/cold thingy (he has always been such a giver) and I've been in a drug induced fog ever since...those meds WOW!! guess I'm just a wimp... they really are doing a number on me! Kind of feel like I'm a road bump myself...however, I'm on the mend...so upwards and onwards...RIGHT? I've also been going to meetings and setting more up to interview builders and architects...GEEZ...this should be so easy...one would think...but I guess we want everything to be just so...so we are trying to do most of our homework up front (did I mention I didn't do homework in school...why oh why must I start NOW??)...and trying to pick people that we can stand to be with for over a year...it will be kind of like dating all over again...hmmmm...that's an interesting way of looking at this...maybe I've been approaching this all wrong...yep...I'm going to have to re-think my strategy!!!
For those of you emailing and posting about my daughter and her surgery...first..."thank you all so much" for your thoughts, prayers and good wishes. Secondly, she is on the mend...I think the first couple of days were the worst...now she feels better pain wise...but rather uncomfortable with all that STUFF stuck up her tiny nose...who wouldn't??? She told me her hubbin' was the perfect nurse to her while she was sick...so that meant I did NOT need to rescue her...drat!! No...really I am so thankful to her sweet hubby...being a caretaker is sometimes the hardest job...so THANKS to my sweet son-in-law!!
I promise not to wait so long to post again...and one more thing...to my friend and fellow TEXAN (who is actually from Oklahoma...but we are happy to have her living in Texas)...WELCOME BACK....KARI...we all missed you!!
