There! Had to be said!
Oh, MAN, I had fun reading all your entries... and I DID read all of them that were up at the time I got to the blog, but I get that some people post at night, so I will cruise a little today to see if I missed any... some 8-10 didn't have the blog posted, and I wasn't sure if it was forgotten or just would be a later posting.
There were some extremely creative entries, ranging from newspaper obits to fictional stories. I'd post awards in categories, but my memory STINKS and I don't want to disadvantage anyone for when I read their post, but I DO want to point to Michael, who plotted MY DEATH... I cackled and fell off my chair... it is SO FUNNY... there were several more that were funny, but oddly, that one spoke to me *snort*
My life is SWAMPED at the moment. I did finish my work deadline yesterday, but have two more looming near and a HUGE one looming far... it is that time of year. It means I've been remiss on blog reading... managing only maybe 10 a day, when normally I shoot for about 40-50. I apologize for that absence... I feel terrible. But I will really try to get back to it next week when the work load should allow me to pace myself.
In ADDITION, my homelife is in disarray... my daughter is taking Lifeguard Training this spring and it is a lot of hours... and they aren't right next door... so my normal writing schedule is messed with (and blogging schedule) (and catch up time). Hopefully this means she will be able to get a lifeguard job at a pool this summer—I've been trying to encourage this, as it's a full time summer job that is good money, so hopefully she won't feel she needs to work during the school year and can continue her sports and such. But it goes until mid-April, so I may be insane until then.
Colene and Alexia's Saint Patrick's Day Blogfest so I hope you will all come out to play for that! There is still time to enter! I'm sure there is Stout Beer involved... (at least here)
In other big news... Cruella has made a very difficult decision to leave Japan, and I think her blog yesterday is thoughtful, moving, and... pretty much amazing. I would sure love it if she decided on a career in journalism.
Thank you again to everyone who made yesterday such a success! My cheeks hurt from all the grinning I did all afternoon, which really does mean YOU ALL ROCK!!!
So there you have it... short for me... Happy Hing Day!!!
