You, guuuuuyysss!

It's been ONE YEAR since I started this blog. I can hardly believe it! One year since I sat down and said, "Gosh, I have lots of superfluous crap in my head. I should start writing it down and see if I can get my friends and family to read it..."

I know I've said it before but, wow, what an adventure this has been. A year ago, I didn't even know that this vast blogging world existed and I had no idea that I would make friends with people on the other side of the world as well as right in my own backyard.

I appreciate each and every one of you who supported me when I said I hated Facebook and then acted the true friend when I succumbed to the pressure and sent my first "friend request".

I felt the camaraderie when my garage sales went bust, public blogs I followed went private and when the young stock boy at Target said to me, "How YOU doin'?...."

Most importantly, I felt your love when relationships went awry and when Dad was diagnosed with Stage 4 lung cancer.

I don't know what the next year will bring for me and Bernie, but we're looking ahead with just a little more hope and excitement knowing that you'll be along for the ride.



  1. Hey it's been a pleasure to ride with you for some of this year, am looking forward to more.

  2. I'm glad to have found your blog, and I look forward to spending the next year with you and Bernie! Thanks for entertaining me! :D

  3. Thank YOU for being there (here?) for us with youd brilliant outlook on life and its absurdities. I'm lovin' it!

  4. Yes we'll be here. A year of blogging, that is something, I'm only 4 months coming up, but it seems like it's forever, I like it a lot. Have a real good week, Chrissy.


  5. I'm still newish at this. I hope I might have some of the success you have had. I look forward to reading you everyday.

  6. Well I haven't been reading your blog that long but I think it's safe to say your blog followers will be with you for years to come.
