To Blog or Not To Blog (I’m pretending that I’m the first clever person to come up with this title…)

So, I’ve not been blogging.

If you’ve noticed my absence, thank you! You’re a nice person and I will give you a gold star when I see you. (I really do have some in my purse, so just ask. (And if you’re wondering why I have some in my purse, it’s the same reason I have pompoms in my car: If you prepare for gold star/pompom experiences, they come your way!! (At least, in theory.)))

Why haven’t I been blogging you ask?

Well, there are a million reasons why, but it boils down to one thing: I’ve had nothing to say. (At least not anything that I would be willing to sit down and write about.)

So, I decided to take a little break to gather (or get) some thoughts, and then come back with a bang in the New Year.

Also, I’ve opted not to do a year in review, because I’ve read all of yours, and you make my year look like I’m trapped in my own incredibly less funny and picturesque version of Groundhog Day.

I’ll give you a Six-word Memoir of it, though:

Dreams attempted, successes and failures resulted.*

But enough about 2008, let’s look on to 2009!

I hope you all have something you want to accomplish this coming year.

Something that you’ve never done before!

Something that you’ll talk about for years to come!!

Something that will change your life!!!

(And if you DO have something, could you tell me about it? Not that I’d copy your idea or anything. Of course I wouldn’t do that! Well, unless it was a really fantastic idea…I mean, it’s a free if it’s something I want to do, I’ll do it…you can’t stop me…unless, of course, you don’t tell me about it…but I really want you to…because I don’t have any ideas…so, disregard what I’ve said…I won’t copy you… I pinky-swear promise…well…maybe…)

*What would be your Six-word Memoir of 2008?

well, I have to give some thought to both of your questions, but wanted to say hi and also thank goodness you are back. I was getting a little despairy checking your blog only to read about Christmas. I've missed you. And sorry about the other day. I was in a coma. Usually I don't answer the phone when I'm in a coma, but I wasn't thinking. I will certainly call you back.

Wait a sec. You've had gold stars in your purse and you haven't shared. I'm pretty sure I've done something to merit one.

I love this 6 word memoir thing. I'm going to have to think about it. And I'm REALLY glad you've posted again.

Ditto about posting again! It's good to hear from you. I can't come up with well written sentences like you (even if it is only 6 words). So, I'll just say: it was a good year. OK, so that's only 5. It's a free country!

I don't have any ideas yet about cool things to do. But you could copy me if I did have an idea!

I also love the 6 Word Memoir thing--Thanks for the invitation! I'll have to think about mine for 2008, but here are the top 3 right now:
Learning to love, I gained freedom.
Opened the door but still lost.
Failed at perfection but grew immensely.

P.S. could you ask Joe to post new pictures of Little Big Joe? I check in every once and awhile and would like to see him now.

My 6 word memoir for 2008:

Spiraling in a linear progression--retrograde.

Good to have you back on the blogosphere. . . I'm looking forward to reading more of your posts!

Andrea said...

I'm so glad you're back! I've been waiting for this day, I just love your blog so much. I'd give the 6 word memoir for 2008 some more thought but who am I kidding? I'm not good when it comes to words so mine will just have to be: Better than the previous, no complaints.
