I miss this blog.

It's been over a year since I've blogged.

That actually makes me sort of sad.

I used to LOVE this blog.  I couldn't wait to post.  And then it became stressful.

And now I just Instagram mainly.  I really don't Facebook.  I don't Snapchat (except to play with the filters).  I don't Vine or Tweet or anything other than IG really.

But I do miss this blog.

I know blogs are becoming a thing of the past, but maybe I'll pop in here now and then (more than once a year at least!) to update my little online journal, if for no one else than myself.  I started blogging about 10 years ago, around the time my dad was terminally ill.  It was a way for me to express all of the feelings (oh the feelings) I had about losing my dad.  I was so scared, so full of hope that he could beat his cancer, so sad, so hopeless.  So everything.

And through the years I've documented so many goods and bads.  I'd hate to just stop.  So let's see where this goes, shall we?

Even if that 'we' is just 'me'.

Must. Keep. Blogging.

I need to get back into the swing of blogging.  I miss it.  I don't care if anyone even reads it.  I could have 1 follower, and that follower could be me for all I care.  I just need to write again.

It's so off my radar though, this blogging thing.  It used to be a daily thing I did.  And then it became this daily thing I had to do.  I hated that I felt obligated to blog.  Especially when I had nothing to say.  Especially especially because no one was forcing me to do it!

I could have an actual tag for posts like this.  You know, the ones where I bitch about how I want to blog again.

Time do just do kid...time to just do.

Wallpaper is NOT old fashioned...

So I have the smallest vestibule known to mankind.  It actually doesn't even qualify as a vestibule, let's be honest.  It's a teeny tiny space that you walk into when you enter the house, and the living room is BAM! right there.

I've been toying (for the past 5 years) with what I should do with the space.  I've finally decided on wallpaper.  I know.  Wallpaper?  Ew.  But it's not mauve with country blue gingham and there is no border happening.  This is the wallpaper:

It may look all animal print-y, and I can see that (especially since it's from Thibaut's Tanzania line). But up on a wall it takes on an interesting neutral space.  Like this!

I've had this on my computer for so long I have no idea where I found it.  Forgive me for the photo credit faux pas!!

So the wallpaper was ordered today and should be here within two weeks.  I. Am. So. Excited.  Perhaps a little too excited.  Whatevs, right?

It's About Time...

I still have to shake my head sometimes that it took this country this long to recognize the rights of the LGBT community.  But we're finally here.  Congratulations to all of my LGBT friends.  Your wait to be recognized as a HUMAN has been a long one, and sadly there are still some that won't feel that you deserve the same rights as heterosexuals (because we're so superior??), but that, quite frankly, is their problem.  So go get your marriage on.  Huzzah!

Toying with the idea...

I thought of this poor blog the other day.  I think after 6 months it can officially be considered abandoned.  But I miss it!  Well, I miss it sometimes.  I have to figure out what to do with this space because I love writing (when I have something to say).  It's the pressure of having something unique to post every day, or every week for that matter.

I'm going to monkey around on here for a bit and we'll see what comes of it.  It may go to blog heaven, it may stick around for awhile.

We shall see.  But in the meantime, thanks for checking in from time to time.  I wouldn't blame you if you wandered away too!

Make that two posts in one month...

Clearly I'm on a roll...

I just had to post to toot my own horn.  Totally not my style, at all, so perhaps a little history will help.  I've been participating in the Fat Mum Slim Photo a Day Challenge since March of 2012.  Yeah.  Like over 2 years.  So every day, for the past 32 months, I've been following the prompts and taking pictures (sometimes missing a day, but always taking that pic and posting it).

So after 960 photos (give or take), one of my photos was selected as part of the Fab Four!  The Fab Four is basically were Chantelle, the creator of Fat Mum Slim, selects 4 interesting photos using that day's prompt.

Woot!  I'm the balloon pic (the prompt was Pop!)!  So yay me.   I feel sort of proud and a little happier than I should given the situation.  But still.  Yay me! :)

One post a month...

I guess that's what I'm going for lately?

Anyway, while there are a million more important things going on in the world, I feel the need to post a pet peeve that freaks me out.

So let's say I'm on a website buying a Christmas gift for someone.  And then I go on another site, but I don't buy something.  It freaks me out when I go onto Facebook and the exact two things I was looking for or purchased are now all over the site.  OR they're on a blog I'm reading (one that takes sponsors or banners).  Somehow (hmmmm) the interwebs know what I want.  And harass me via various online means.

That's just icky.  Icky, Icky, Ick.
