A day late and a dollar short

So it's July 30.


Yesterday -- July 29 -- was the third anniversary of the first time I posted an entry on this blog.

And I forgot.

But three years is a long time.

It is the difference between an infant and a walking, talking (tantruming) child.

It is the difference between my years of horror and my years of joy.

It is the difference between a newly minted teenager and sweet 16.

It is the difference between the ramblings of a neophyte and a full-fledged member of an amazing online community.

I could write in the emptiness -- but it's much more fun with you here.

So if you usually lurk, poke your head in and say hello. If you're a regular commenter, raise your voice yet again.

And thank you for three incredible years.

You're so much more than welcome. And I feel like it's a bit reversed ... I should be thanking YOU for introducing me to yourself and Roo and WonderHubby and the rest of your remarkable family.

Oh. And your sense of humor. Your lovely, amazing, indefatigable sense of humor.

Honestly, when I first started reading you, I wondered what you and I might have in common - I didn't think there would be much that you and I could share and I didn't think there would be much reason for me to hang around here.

I was wrong. Thank the Good Graces I was wrong.

I first discovered you when I was googling "CFM shoes" to see if it was just myself and friends that used the term. Well, afer reading about your pole-dancing mother I was hooked!!

Happy 3rd anniversary, I am many miles away in the UK with my own life-enhancing, stress-making, kidsa nd dogs plus a patient second husband who puts up with us all far more placidly than I do.

Keep posting and I'll keep reading x x x

Thank YOU, for all the laughs you have provided over the years. Thanks for making us think about serious subjects. Thank you for sharing your family with us.

Now that the blog is 'out' to the family, it should have a BIRTHDAY dinner!
