Four years ago yesterday, I started this blog.  2010 was a pretty big year for me.  I got my Master’s Degree and started working for crisis.  I went to see the Grand Canyon and met the TV Guy.  This was my first post.

I started my blog with very little clear idea of what I wanted to do with it, just that I wanted to have a place to write thoughts and observations, and if others decided to join me, more the better.  I also wanted to force myself to write more often.  The problem is that I often say I’m “too busy,” and of course, I am.  But I’m too busy for lots of things, and I do them.  If I didn’t have to sleep, I’m sure I’d consider that a luxury too.

In those 4 years, I’ve written 1,024 posts!  Who would have thought I’d have so much to say?


30 Days of Gratitude- Day 1

IMG_1476Day 1 of the 30 Days of Gratitude Project. 1. I’m grateful that I had such a wonderful Halloween/ Anniversary yesterday. Nearly perfect days like that don’t come along all that often. 2. I’m grateful for my strong body that allows me to do everything I need/ want to do. 3. I’m grateful I have a job and partner I love, so that going to work isn’t something I dread!

Three Years and Counting!

I just had my third blogging anniversary.  I can’t believe I’ve been doing this for three years!

When I started out, I didn’t have much idea of what I wanted to do with a blog, just that I wanted to blog about reading and writing, and life in general.  I started off by blogging occasionally, then went to daily (which is way hard).  The TV Guy joined me somewhere around December 2010, and he’s done his Sunday feature pretty much without fail since then.  I think that these days, I’ve settled in around 3 times per week, plus the TV Guy, though all that is subject to change without notice!

I’m at 9788 views, 824 posts, but only 486 comments.  Let’s work to increase that number, people!

Thanks for sticking around and reading what I have to say.  Cheers!
