Two Years!? Me Thinks I Have A Hobby!

I never would have thought I would have kept this up for a month let alone two years.

I think it's official, I have a hobby!

Yes, talking about yourself is a hobby. Okay, true, journaling is a hobby and this is like a journal except without all the extrapolation on the meaning of life and what my existence might me in the greater scheme of things.

Hey! Sit down. Like I'm suddenly going to go all deep on you. I mean, really.

You've been here before so you know I'm about to go off the tracks but stuff is just kind of coming to me as I sit here so, good luck.

In this past year I have met three of my fellow bloggers! Kristie (more than once and many more visits to come), Nath and Ames (who may make another visit to our area next year!). If you had told me I was going to meet people through blogging I may have scurried away from the computer. Yeah, that anxiety bitch. But in the end, it didn't stop me from meeting fantastic people who love to read just like me. As Bob says, 'there's more than one of you!?'

So really, the only goal I have is to meet even more of the amazing people I have met while blogging and that would take some coin. If I win the lottery though, look out!!

I'm wondering what I should try and do more of this year.

Reading was a given wiseacre.

I'm actually thinking about painting and re-decorating the house.

This is good news as the thought of this a month ago would have paralyzed me but now I'm working through the logistics in my head. Bob has to go away for one night (I really need two nights cause I have to paint the ceiling too) in a few weeks so I'm thinking of surprising him with the living room being done. I used to do this all the time when he traveled only because he's a pain to do any kind of task around. 'How much longer is this paint tray going to be here? Why are the walls only partially done? I can't stand the room looking like this, I have to move the furniture back in!'

Seriously, Aries are fucked up (settle down, you know I love him to pieces). Lucky for him I'm a Virgo and we're all easy going and shit. We also have excellent aim so when they see the foot lifting off the ground they know to move their ass.

Yeah, I'm not seeing any growth here in these pages so I don't think you'll find many changes here. I enjoy blogging and I enjoy visiting with all you guys at your blogs.

It's fun and hey, I've heard that's what a hobby is supposed to be about!

Happy 2nd Blobday. Isn't it a great thing - the side benefits you don't expect from blogging? I think my life would be so much more gray without all the wonderful people I've gotten to know

Rosie said...

Cindy! I didn't know we started blogging almost at the same time. How cool and well, cool! :) Congrats, no wonder you were willing to sacrifice yourself and eat a candy bar for me. ;)

Happy bloggy day! 2 years is a long time. Think of all the writing you have done in that time. ;)

Jenster said...

Wow! Happy blogiversary!!

I'm the exact same way about painting! I mean, I like to do it when Todd is out of town because then I can do it MY way without any crap from him. And I hate to tell you this, but HE'S the Virgo! LOL

Happy blogiversary! I'm so glad you came into the blog world. You make me laugh and I love reading about your 'adventures'. Just think about all the great books (and not so great) that we got you to read in the course of these two years.
