Sure, I brought some deliciousness into your life, caused you to crave Papa John's, and am giving you the chance to win something cool, but I haven't had time to do any fun what's going on in my world posts.
That's because there hasn't been any fun.
I am the coordinator, planner, organizer, supervisor, director, leader, person who is doing everything in preparation for Kaylee's school's fun night this Friday. That means I've planned all the events, contacted and contracted with the food vendor, bought all necessary supplies and taken them to the school (including 600+ drinks, 300+ candy bars, 1000+ bingo cards, etc), designed, written, and made 900+ copies of various flyers and notes to go home, written a schedule for volunteer's needed at fun night and coordinated with the 30+ volunteers we need, etc etc etc.
Turns out fun night really isn't all that fun.
Since I have no time for real posting, I leave you with this list:
Wednesday blogger confessions:
--I like to color with the non-pointed end of crayons.
--I don't have any reason to post this but wanted to include it anyway:
--I own re-usable grocery bags, and keep them in my car so that they're easily accessible, and yet 90% of the time I still forget to bring them in the store.
--I've been known to cancel plans with friends in the middle of winter, just because it was cold outside and I didn't want to leave my house.
--My 7 year old daughter is more into recycling than I am.
--I took that same 7 year old daughter to pick out glasses last night, and because I'm a mom that thinks that kids should get to make as many of their their own decisions as possible (within reason!), we ended up purchasing a bright red pair AND a bright turquoise pair. She'll love looking back on these pictures years from now, wondering what in the world she was thinking!
a little bit like this.
--To go along with that, when I was about 10, I chose a pair of round, bright green glasses. Looking back at pictures, I am HORRIFIED that my mom allowed me to wear them.
--I always go to the self-checkouts at the grocery store if it's an option. I'm OCD about how my groceries get bagged and I think I do a better job than the employees.
this is NOT good!
--I'm mad at UPS because I was going to use them to ship my cake truffles to the auction winner, but for a little 10 X 5 X 2 inch box, 1.5 pounds, they were going to charge me $50 to overnight it. I don't think so!!
As a newbie blogger, every time I saw my follower count increase by one, I did a little happy dance. True story.
And now, as a seasoned, mature blogger of three months now, I know that my blog is more than just my silly little ramblings. A blog is a way to connect with people, a way to share my own little world, and get to learn about others as well. I've "met" some great people, and I enjoy getting to read little snippets of their life each day. And I really have some amazing, awesome followers.
Yes, YOU! (In fact, because I love ya so much, I have a follower-only giveaway coming up in April.)
So if you're here, and you like what you see, either head on up to the top of my page or to the right-hand column, and click the little follow button. I visit and follow all my follower's blogs, and enjoy the opportunity to connect with new people.
(As a little side note, my husband has recently started noticing my followers. (he follows my followers, if you will!) And after seeing more than one of my little happy dances about my followers, anytime he notices that my follow count has increased, he lets me know. He loves to be the bearer of good news. (or just likes to laugh at my
