A New Family I Love More!
Why do we do this? Blogging, I mean.
Do we do it for the sheer joy of keeping family members updated on our children? Do we do it to make other people laugh out loud at some of our silly memories? Do we do it for the money? No. No. And Gawd, I wish that was the case.
We do it for the comments most of the time. In the hospital, I'm an adrenaline junkie. I love the rush of emergencies. In cyberspace, I'm a comment junkie.
Yes, I hear you all out there muttering..."But Shawn, you've only been blogging for a month for Pete's sake! What were you expecting? To be P-Dub in no time flat?"
Umm. Yeah, actually! I never said I had realistic expectations! Just ask my previous husbands! On second thought, don't ask them. They lie.
I just trying to put a little flame to the feet of those that KNOW me, you know, the family and friends that I originally started this for. The ones that I see peeking in on a regular basis. The ones that NEVER leave me comments. And 'But Shawn, I left one for you 3 weeks ago' doesn't count.
So my new family is Staci and Snooty. You two consistently read me AND comment and I love you for it! So make space on your mantle for my picture because I am nominating myself as part of your family and I'm adopting you are part of mine. The part that (for right now) I'm loving more than my own.
Ha! So there ya go fam damily! Whatcha think of that!
P.S. Have I mentioned that I never did get my wine from the other night..and I'm having to work an extra shift...and I'm not losing weight like I wanted...and I'm on the cranky side right now? I didn't? Did you already figure that part out?
