Every once in a little while I get it into my head that I'm going to give up on this whole blogging business.  It's trite.  It's silly.  No one really gives much of a damn anyway, so why not just spare myself the bother of it all?

Some might call this 'feeling sorry for one's self'.  Me, I prefer to call it 'insightful introspection', even if it is technically true that I only ever do it when I'm feeling sorry for myself.


I received a stern talking to from my mother via e-mail this morning regarding this issue.  She told me to knock it the fuck off already, and write something funny.  Like, NOW!


If she had been living my life in all this rain for the past month, she'd know what a Herculean task funny is for me at the moment.

Truth is, I got nothin'.  But, tell ya'll what, Mister bribed me into going with him up to my sister-in-law's farm for the weekend.  I'd share with you the terms of the bribe, but you wouldn't approve, so we'll skip it.  Suffice it to say, the Lord of Chaos himself runs his sloppy syndicate out of my sister-in-law's kitchen cupboards.  Simply (and lovingly--because I heart her and all, and I certainly wouldn't want anyone getting the wrong idea here) put, people tend to loose their collective shit when they go up there. Hilarity is sure to follow.

So, come Monday, I might, just might, have two or five funnyish acedotes to share.  Or--at the very least--a picture or two.

I'm here. 

I'm back.

I just needed a break is all.

Welll........okay, then. But you should know, you're missed when you don't blog. It's THAT FREAKIN' MUCH FUN!!!! I can hardly wait to hear about the farm. Is it lambing season? No, is it rutting season? I know its always milking season. Have fun.

I'm glad you're back blogging again.
Thanks for the laughs.

I wouldn't be much for it either if it was constantly a downpour here. I am happy to see you are coming 'round and feeling a like blogging again. Queenie's right - you are sorely missed!

Too late, I waited so long, I ate my own feet then fled back to the land of the Arabs before the boredom finished me off.

I completely understand. I have people at work or in emails always say “you haven’t blogged for a while”, or “it’s about time for a new one”. How do you tell people politely to fuck off? As you can imagine, what I really want to talk about I can’t or I just don’t have the time or energy to try and please the masses (all four of them that check daily. Thanks Tarilyn, Mom, Jeda, and Terry).

However, you need to know I get reminded at work or at the in-laws that you have been blogging, long before I ever check to see. Your words are loved and longed for. Keep it up sis. Love Ya!
