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?

J Cosmo: Totally true but even with therapy I want comments! Give me feedback! I have to have it! I feel my face starting to twitch.

lol

Staci said...

I love those comments also! You know the ones, where you had 3 comments and all of a sudden there's 5, and you can't wait to read 'em?

Snooty Primadona said...

Funny you should mention that. I have an award for you on my blog today. And, now that you've got me hooked, you'd better not quit anytime soon.

Speaking of which, where is your sister? Still enamored with Facebook? Well, she has an award waiting for her too.

Oh and I too am a complete comment slut. I'll do anything...

Staci said...

I second that award from Snooty, by the way.

hermomsometimes said...

I was going to say you had an award from Staci but it looks like Snooty beat her to it.

Okay, I don't comment much, I'll try and do better.

numberonesistah said...

Woohoo! I have comments. Still none from my sisters though. I think I'll take Keepers advice and think of lots of various embarrassing incidents that involve them! Woohoo!

Philly said...

Start writing stories about them, see how fast they comment !! LOL

Sheesh - here's a comment... what about the year or so you visited my blog and left like maybe 5 comments for my 200 posts? Huh?

Actually, I do comment when I'm not in a rush and not just doing a quick read and then outta here.

BTW, you're doing a good job on the blog, keep it coming.
