You Guys Are the Best

Thanks to all who responded to my last post. I know it wasn't exactly the most coherent thing I've ever written, but that kind of goes hand in hand with what I was (and still sort of am) feeling.

I sometimes feel like scrapping the blog -- ideas are hard to come by, especially when all you have to say is: "I got up this morning, did a bunch of stuff, and then went back to bed to do it all over again tomorrow." I know that everyone gets to the point where they feel the same way. I've seen many of you post about throwing in the blogular towel, and I've even known some people who've actually DONE it. (As a matter of fact, there are a couple of them still on my blogroll. Note to self: fix that, would ya?!)

I also have the tendency to over-schedule myself, and then I get so flipping tired. That's where the spiraling starts.

I do, however, want to say that the main reason that I keep the blog going is all of you -- my friends. Your support helps me through those harder days, and the friendships that I've made keep me tethered. I already knew you guys were great, but it was confirmed by little things like opening the mailbox to find a card from one of you. I would miss you all too much if I were to chuck it all. So, I guess that means that I'm sticking it out, and you're all still stuck with me a while longer.

Besides, some of you promised to visit. And, then I owe YOU visits, and I can't have things messing up the all-important vacation plans.

Don't we all go through stuff like this? And by "we" I'm not at all admitting that I'm over here leaving comments rather than updating my own blog at this moment.

Did I ever tell you about my monitor crapping out on me? When it was in its death throes, it would no longer process red, so everything with red in it showed up a different color. Most pages really looked like garbage, but your official seal was a beautiful cobalt blue all over. It was very striking.

Now. I tell you this because I know blue is your favorite color and because every time I saw the all-blue seal I was reminded of last year's WHOYC, when I read your entire archive and discovered a few mentions that blue is maybe the best. color. ever. And if it were not for WHOYC, I wouldn't know you (if only in print). I'm happy to be here, even if I'm just reading "I woke up and went to work again." Hey - that's my life too!

Here's hopin' you find some energy the next time you shake out Offspring's pants pockets when you're doing laundry. :)

I made our reservations last week for NC.

I'm going to reserve our rooms for the wedding and our trip to your town soon.

I think it's this time of year. It starts cooling off, school starts, and it gets harder to blog.

Write when you can. ((KLee))

Man, next time we visit Matt's GPs in NC I told him we need to make a detour for a wee bloggy meet-up. :)

Next year, in September, I will be going to my Navy reunion in Charleston. We will be stopping by your town so maybe we can have a bite of lunch or somehting.

Don't you go anywhere, you're my lifeline when I visit my MIL, okay?
