I realized today that I have officially been blogging for six months. Happy Blogoversary to me! I would like to thank all of you (again) for following me and
listening to me reading my ramblings-on about the every day things in my life. I've really enjoyed this more than I thought I would. It's a world all to itself, really. We are all sharing bits and pieces of our lives, who we are, and where we're going. It's been fun getting to know the bloggers that I follow regularly. And just so you know, even if I don't "follow" you, I do check in now and then.
I finally found a couple "key word searches" that made me giggle. Okay, one actually made me laugh. The others not so much. One just confused me, as I couldn't figure out how it linked to my page, as when I used the same search, I was having to go quite a ways into it and still didn't find me.
Could you die from eczema? Someone actually Googled this? I know that eczema is not only annoying to spell, but it's also annoying because you itch a lot, but death by itching? Say it isn't so. And I couldn't figure out how the first search linked up to me, as I couldn't find me. Maybe because I mentioned the Coke Polar Bear? And that I prefer the taste of Pepsi to Coke - at least when it comes to the regular version? No idea.
I put up a couple of pic links to my volunteer organizations today. I figured since I will shortly be forced to quit volunteering for them, I can at least try to shamelessly promote them. If you ever want to know about either of them, please click on the picture and it will take you to their websites. As for the Golden Retriever Rescue, they take in Goldens from quite literally everywhere. I've even seen them shipped from Asia. Seriously. Any dog named something like Bing or Ping. And people come from out of state to adopt. They are the only rescue of it's kind for Goldens. If you or someone you know would like to adopt one, please click on their logo. They have tons of dogs available for foster or adoption. As for Saddle Pals, I don't know how many other organizations there are, are where they might be located - this one is local to me. It's a great program for disabled kids. These programs are always looking for dedicated volunteers to assist in lessons or basic barn yard help. It's a great way to meet people and learn about disabilities and how hard these kids work to achieve even the smallest of goals.
I finally did manage to figure out how to make "pages" at the top of my page, so I could clean up my blog a little. Thanks to those who commented on my post about begging for help trying to figure out this stuff. I still got frustrated because I was still trying to go about it the wrong way, but in the end I got it. Thanks again for your help!
Where oh where have my commentors gone? Maybe it's just my recent posts haven't interested anyone enough to leave a comment. Who knows for sure. I hate to admit this, but I get jealous of the amount of comments some bloggers get for their posts. I have to say that their posts are generally quite awesome to begin with, and mine are not always so awesome. I know not every post gets a lot of hits, or comments and that's cool. I guess its the whiny/needy in me coming out.
I now have about two weeks left at work. Damn. It's flying by. I'll be glad to get away from working graveyard. And also to get away from bad stuff that flies around. You know, the mean office gossip. Or, just the meanness from some people. The kind of mean that brings people to tears, that they can't do anything about because the mean ones always come out smelling like a rose. I'm there for those people for a short time, and I feel bad that I'm leaving in that they will have one less ally at work.
The last couple times I've gone through a drive-thru, people can't seem to understand a word I say. For example, I say something like, "I would like a number six." And they reply with, "A number twenty?" How do you get twenty from six? Or when they ask what I'd like to drink, I say, "Diet Coke." And they reply with, "A Diet Dr. Pepper?" Whoa, folks. Really?
At least I haven't had any more trouble with people falling asleep in the drive-thru.
