October 31 is actually my blogiversary! In that time, I've managed to get 100 followers and write 257 posts ( with this one being 258, but it's really the day AFTER my blogiversary.) I always knew I was a chatterbox, but even I'm surprised by how many blog posts I wrote!
I have written about my kids (love you Gina), bragged about them, bitched about them. I've written about my marriage, and how it fell apart, the evil step-mother, meeting John, and about his journey through 2 years of cancer treatment. I've written about my job, vacations, my hopes for the future.
I've made so many wonder people here, I can't even describe it properly. Some of you have helped me clean off my monitor on a regular basis (I really need to stop drinking coffee while I'm online). I've laughed with you, cried with you, gotten pissed a time or two.
I've virtually traveled the US (Thanks Garret and Jim!), learned about far-off places (Thanks Braja and Lilly and Pseudo!). I celebrated great achievements with you (congrats Vodkamom with your 1100+ followers in a year, and , Alix with your fabulous weight loss and Janie with getting a great new job so quickly, Ryan and Cole with your beautiful new baby). I've met folks who live right around the corner (Hi Matty, Martha and Danielle!)
I could go on and on and probably link each and everyone of you up in some way or another, but I'm really hungry. Maybe that'll be my goal for this week... to thank each and every one of you for a wonderful first year!
