Initially, I had intended to apologize for my rant-y, vent-y, vodka induced woe-is-me last post. Then it dawned on me.
My blog, my rules (I read that on one of the blogs I follow), so no apologies. Because, yeah. My blog, my rules, my thoughts, my feelings…But I will preface a rant with a warning, and I’m glad that actually steered someone away from that particular post. 🙂 You’re welcome. 😉
I blog what I feel, and if I need to whine/vent/rage/cry, then I’m going to do it, because in doing so? I may save a life or a knuckle, ha ha. 😉 Oh, and I know the importance of healthy knuckles, because, during my pool cleaning adventure today, I came across the spider from hell and ended up bashing a knuckle against the step-rail as I jumped back from the huge (ok, maybe he was an inch long; maybe he was a foot) creature that came crawling at me. //shudder// and //owwwww!// But it IS a lovely shade of purple, which is my favorite color, so there’s that… 😉
I took yesterday off as a “Stay Under My Rock” day. I didn’t move from the couch much. I caught up on my favorite shows, downed some popcorn (one of my favorite snacks, next to crack-flower seeds), and basically sat around feeling sorry for myself. I allowed myself ONE DAY…Over. Period.
I got up at oh-dark-thirty today and watched World War Z and found that a good world-ending zombie flick has a way of putting things in perspective. So I put my big girl panties back on, and did what needed to be done around here.
Now I am going to thank my brother from another mother (sorry, cliche, LOL), Rob. He sent over another award while I was starting this post, soooo… Read on:
2. Link back to the person who nominated you. (done!)
3. Nominate 10 others you see as having an impact on your WordPress experience and family (Going there in a paragraph or two…)
4. Let your 10 Family members know you have awarded them (Give me a few, dammit!)
5. That is it. Just please pick 10 people that have taken you as a friend, and spread the love. (There are more than ten, I think, but I’m going to hit up a mix of new and old friends that would also fit right into my real life family. Some of you even put the FUN in dysfunctional, LOL…) Also, I totally understand if you are busy and can’t or choose not to participate. I just want to let you all know that I read you, see your comments, and take notice out here.

Look at you, my dear little sis! You seem to have made a bigger family connection and have so many people to love and love you back! I am so very proud! Congratulations for this wonderful award and thank you very much for including me once again in an awarding post! You, Julie, are a sweetheart! I am sorry that I have been busy, had a great picnic ‘send off’ for my daughter yesterday and so, I ran to the library, typed my pre-written post and took off for a cookout at our local state park. all 3 kids and 6 grandchildren present! It was also, I emphasized, my Mother’s Day celebration, too! Enough excitement, I am sort of getting tired today… we are doing Open Stock at work… Now you are caught up with my stuff and I will get to this award post this weekend! Smiles, Robin
I love your picks, Julie! So many excellent blogs!!!!
Huzzah! So happy to be part of the family 😉 Thanks Julie, I always always appreciate a shout out 😀 I also may steal this “hide under a rock day” from you. That sounds helpful.
I’m in a family, sniff sniff. Thanks Julie!
Awwww, you’re welcome! 😀
OMGosh! Thank you Julie! It may take me a couple of three of four days because I’m semi without computer but I will post! 😀
Hmmmm…I think I can relate to that (said Jules the Mac Slayer), ha ha ha. 😉 You’re welcome!
Thanks for the nomination, Julie. Due to time constraints, I may have to pass on this one for now, but I should be able to accept it in a couple of months. I love that you enjoy my blog and so often comment on it – and always remember that your blog is yours, you can do whatever you want to with it. I had to beat that into my own head on a number of occasions.
I know…it’s hard to get to them when we get them. 🙂 I just wanted you to know that I really appreciate you and your blogs. They always make me smile!
Hey, no apologies necessary, Julie. Sometimes we just have to get things out and we usually feel so much better afterward.
Thank you so much for the award! Like Aussa, I don’t do the awards, but I really appreciate you thinking of me. I’m happy we recently connected and thrilled to have another kindred blogging sister. 🙂
I hope you have a great Monday!
🙂 Congratz on the award, and awwww thank you for letting me be a part of your WP family! ❤
You’re so welcome! 🙂
Ahhhhh it’s so difficult choosing people, isn’t it!?!!! >.< AHHH I LOVE WP TOO MUCH!
It’s addicting for sure! 🙂
Unless you are slandering someone – you should never have to apologize for speaking (blogging) how you feel…even the vodka fueled ranty kind.
Thank you! Which is why I actually didn’t. I am thinking it was your blog where I saw “my blog, my rules, ” but couldn’t find where it was. 🙂
((but only after we go to the beach))
Well, shhhhyeah…. 😀
never apologize for TRUE FEELINGS or I swear by all that is sacred and Holy I WILL END YOU….
I said I THOUGHT about it…thinking isn’t doing, because if it was? The house would be re-painted, the hammock would be hung out back, the patio repairs would be done, and I would be disgustingly rich, LMAO!!!! 🙂
