Secrets

So if I didn't post it here, you would never know that on this date January 15, 2008, I have broken each and every resolution that I made on New Year's Day. Are you shaking your head in disbelief that I'm so weak, or are you nodding in sympathy? Actually we've had an overdose of deaths lately, and it's been a full-time job just to keep the funks at bay. Here's another secret. One of my resolutions was to be a dynamite IN YOUR FACE blogger! I got a blogging book and blogging lessons for Christmas! I was vying for Rookie Blogger--all in my mind. I think I'll take it easy on myself, though. After all, one of my students dropped my camera so I can't start posting pictures yet. And I have another question. Is the average age of bloggers in the late twenties or something? Thirty somethings? No blue hair blogs out there????? Find me one of those I can join!!! Varicose veins. Paid down mortgages. Knitting calluses. I'm reading blogs written by yuppie overachieving home educators!!! Running circles around me and cooking to boot! Help me out here!!!

Sorry about the overdose of deaths.

I'm also sorry I don't fit the bill of blue haired, callused blogger. Nor do I know of anyone off hand who fits that description. If I find anyone, I'll pass the link your way.

Bytheway, I'm working my way through your list of favorite books. I have a stack of 4 from the library right now. I couldn't decide which one to read first, so I'm reading all 4 right now and loving them. You have excellent taste in books!

AH Marilyn..so good to hear from you again. I hadn't noticed your hair looking so blue, and what on earth is a paid down mortgagae? I guess it is all incidental, since not only am I completely out of the blogging circle, I have a very, very limmited group of blogging friends. In fact, you are my only bolgging friend. So keep blogging, lest I be left with NO blogging friends. How out of it would I be then?

Elyse,
You should join the blogging world! Come on in! The water's fine!

I want to know what your "broken" resolutions were. I feel that if you make any sort of resolution within the month of January and are making progress, be it slow, than that counts.

I made the usual resolutions:
more scriptures
less sweets
exercise
Actually I want to declare 2008 the Year of Health!

SO I just found your blog and your need for "blue-haired lady" blogs and while these 2 ladies don't have blue hair they are closer to it than me. Anyways the first is my mom's bearlakemonsters.blogspot.com/
and the 2nd is my Aunt Chris's I don't know if you ever met her but at least she is not 20 something

Man, I wish I'd been reading your blog these last few months! You could've gotten me out of my winter blues! You are great!

As for those 20-something bloggers with perfect kids and nice manicures... I just simply hate them! :)
