Is it wrong that I laugh at The Boondocks? Or that I’m white and laugh at The Boondocks?
I’ve always held true that if you have a blog, you must have something creative to say. If you have something incredibly creative to say, you gain an audience. If that audience likes you well enough, you quickly gain a following. With followings come blogs and caring people who love what you put out there for free, out there in the blogosphere. I’ve been doing this for nearly eight years. My blogs have seen me through cancer, addiction, college, motherhood, loverhood, and everything else that could possibly happen to someone in eight years. Think about that. What has happened to you in the last eight years? Are you the same person you were in 2000? If not, what changed you? 9/11? A personal tragedy? A failed relationship? A successful relationship? What molded you into the person that you are today?
I think about what happened to me since I started blogging and all the hours and energy I have poured into this hobby of mine. Do I still do this for me? I don’t think that I do. I don’t think anyone who blogs anymore strictly do it for themselves. You do it to hold an audience. You do it to get a personal gain. One higher than the self-satisfaction of knowing that you are keeping people entertained. I blog for the people who enjoy what I have to say. I blog for the people who appreciate the energy and time that I pour into my sites so that they may be the best that they can possibly be. Have you walked away with something positive from my blog? Could others say the same about your’s?
It is so nice here. We have WiFi. It’s almost like being at home. Even the moon is bigger, fuller, in Texas. I see it peeking above the hotel in the sky. I like it here. I’ve had a good time so far. I’m not exactly sleepy but I should get some sleep. I have a long, hard day later on.
Physically, I feel worse. I’ve lost weight and I’m not even trying. I keep getting this throat infection. I wish I knew what was wrong with me and why I’m so sick all the time. But why am I posting this silly stuff online? No one reads this site, do they?
I’m going out of town with my husband tomorrow. We’re going to be gone until Sunday afternoon, but I promise to take lots of pictures and possibly some videos while I am out. Our daughter is staying with my mom. All is good in our world.
Here are some pictures from our Easter celebration this year! Enjoy!
I hope everyone had a happy Easter! If you don’t celebrate Easter, then I hope you had a happy Sunday! It’s back to the old grind for me tomorrow. I’m not looking forward to it, but I’m not dreading it. It’s just something that’s got to happen sooner or later.
We had a pretty good Easter. I went to see a friend who is recovering from surgery. I took him a stuffed bunny from Godiva chocolates, and a pre-packaged Easter basket. Dennis bought our daughter and I mother/daughter matching heart necklaces from Tiffany’s to wear to the Easter mass today. He said I looked absolutely beautiful in them. *all smiles*
I’ve been having some nose bleeds lately. I hope it’s nothing more than the change in the weather or because I fell off the wagon a couple of nights ago and not because I’m getting sick again. That’s always in the back of my mind, that I won’t stay well. I’m going to the doctor tomorrow. No worrying about me, ok? *all smiles*
I can’t sleep. The printer is malfunctioning, not allowing me to print off my power points for Monday morning.
Hey There Delilah is playing on the radio again. Haunting me, is it? It’s been five hours. Yes, I’m keeping tabs. I just want my mind to be clear again.
