As of today it has been four years since I started writing down various pieces of random information and daily life on the internet. Four years.
Time flies when you’re having fun or sitting on your couch at midnight trying to think of something interesting to say and then usually failing and settling for whatever comes to mind instead. You’re welcome for that.
When I started this blog on July 5, 2006 on a total whim, Caroline looked like this.
Oh my heart.
There was no way I could have known the friends I would make along the way and how much I would adore the fact that I can pull up any random date from the last four years and know it was the day Caroline got rid of her pacifiers or the day I nearly lost my mind dealing with Dish Network’s customer service or when I became obsessed with Wizard of Oz McDonald’s Happy Meal toys to make the perfect shoe box Fiesta float.
I’ve written about my family, my friends, Jose the guy that put the tile in our bathroom shower, and the time P’s Polaris was mysteriously wrecked. I’ve quit my job, adjusted to life after my career, and experienced a few hormonal meltdowns.
Y’all show up here to read about it for reasons that I don’t totally understand but can only assume are directly related to understanding my ongoing recovery from bad 80’s hair and love of reality television.
And I cannot thank you enough for that. It wouldn’t be nearly as much fun without you.
Thanks for reading. Here’s to another four years or when I run out of words.
Whichever comes first.
