She's baaaaaaack

Happy blog anniversary to me! I can't believe it's been three years.

Three whole years.

On this gray, rainy day in February I find myself having come somewhat full circle from the place I was when I started blogging. Life is funny that way.

In 2008 I was a new mom, and I was overwhelmed. A little lonely. Very tired. Frumpy. Feeling like I was living Groundhog Day. A lot of those feelings have resurfaced with the new kid, Diddly, except this time there's a three-year-old tugging at my leg and we're in the middle of moving from Mulletville.

Minor details, right?

For my anniversary I'm posting a link to an old post. Chuck always said he didn't quite get the post, but as Junior and I played his old toy guitar for Diddly yesterday and I "met" Donna all over again I realized that it's one of my favorites.

I also want to say thank you for reading (some of you since the beginning!) and for making this blog a place I love to come back to. Seriously, thank you.

I didn't find you until a while after Chuck was born so that post was new to me...

Rock on Donna. Rock on.

You're welcome and THANK YOU! I remember finding you ages ago and dying over your post about a trip to the grocery store with Junior.

Happy Blog-iversary! The new mom-to-two-haze will clear soon enough and we'll be reading about Diddly wearing Junior's Elf costume.

That post is soooooo funny!!! It sounds just like a dream I would have! I'm not a fan of Donnas either but, I would picture her with short dark hair. What with all the animal care she has to provide, long locks just wouldn't work.

Congrats on 3 years with your blog!!

Ha! The Donna one was a new one to me. Awesome. Stupid Donna.

Happy *mumblemumble*

(Sorry, can't bring myself to say 'blogiversary'.)

Man! There are a lot of holes in my neighborhood

Our young neighbors Bob and Claire are wonderful —which is a fricken relief because we basically share a yard. A flat, treeless yard. When ...
