Friends from the Blog-o-verse!

I search the internet daily for bloggers that I feel like I connect with,
but rarely do I find any.
I am too old,
or too young.
Sometimes, not religious enough,
or maybe not cool  or hip enough.
I don't have a gaggle of sorority sisters to follow me,
and I haven't been featured anywhere for a slew of people to start following, either.

Honestly, I have been blogging for nearly 4 years and only have 77 followers.
...and of those, I am 99% sure only 10 read on a regular basis.
I want to say I am discouraged, but really...I am not.
I write for me.

It warms my heart putting my words out there.
Knowing I am blessed in so many ways;
Sharing happiness, sadness, adventures, everything.

Every friendship, I have ever had, I feel like I have given my all...all the time.
I guess, that is why I am devoted to this thing--followers or not.
In the end, 
it appears,
it has turned out to be one of my best friends.

Language Lesson from myself...and Jen

Yesterday, after I posted the story about my hubs, I kept looking at the title.

For some reason, it looked wrong to looked long to me, as well, but that is how I write.
I decided to ask a friend of mine about it,
I was pretty sure what needed to be changed,
but I didn't like the way it looked either...LOL.
Thus started this convo:

          2.     Thank Goodness you scratched CALIGULA!
ME:  LOL...piizza is just about better than anything!!!!
...and I am sure names will change again...LOL.
I think there should be a comma after hubs in the title????
what do you think?
JEN:Commas are for pauses.  I do not think there should be a comma.
ME:dang it...I meant apostrophe...LOL
JEN:Should be hub’s face as it is a possessive
this was great!!!
:I call him I think it should be hubs' face????
JEN:In that case hubs’ lol
However you said my hubs in which case I would think it would still be hub’s as opposed to I want to say to hubs’ face. :P
Also following the rules
add 's to the singular form of the word (even if it ends in -s):
 so it would be hubs’s
ME:but that would be saying my hub and then making it poss...
since I said "my hubs"...I think hubs' face would be OK
but now I am thinking it would be hubs's...LOL
maybe i should blog about this...LOL
JEN:Well there is only one of him! So the singular would be hubs’s but are intending hubs here to be the plural of hub (husband). I’m going with my hubs’s face on this one lol
ME:I am leaving it alone...and using this as tomorrow's blog post...LOL

I guess, maybe...
I found this funny because,
I am a total English/Grammar snob, and if someone corrects me( "Thank you, Former Alice Lloyd College President, Jerry Davis"), 
I feel I should learn from it.

However, I think we own our own language, too.
I pause. I inflict. I pronounce. I enunciate. I write the way I talk.
(Hence, many ellipses for good ol' me.)
I know I use the word THAT waaayyyy too much, but it is what it is. 
I don't write for the Washington Post, New York Times, or the New Yorker...
and probably never will.
My biggest lesson though, is to let it an extent.
Never will I let there, they're, or their go!

Christmas Ornament Exchange

Christmas Fun
So, I follow quite a few blogs that are about, well...nothing. Just gals that like to talk, type, and live life to the fullest. Today I was catching up with Claire over here and came across this great idea.

Turns out, I was too late to sign, I thought I would host my own. I commented about it being a great idea and 10 minutes later I got an email saying there was another girl wanting to do it, too. That quick, I was in like Flynn.

I am so excited about doing this, but really excited about my swap partner. A bit nervous, too. She is about the same age as my eldest daughter...and you have no idea the struggles I have when trying to make or buy her something. However, so glad to see a young lady chronicling  her life and times in this busy, fast-paced, uber high-tech world we live in:

She has 2 middle names, as do both my girls. Studying education, what is better than the teaching profession? She LOVES pinning...don't we all? But as great as she is, I am struggling with 2 known facts about Sarah. One, she is a GA Bulldog 4life; We are a UK Cat family for basketball and an LSU Tiger family for football, I guess I can let her "sports" affiliation slide during this Christmas season. Second, this girl loves the treadmill more than running outside...who loves machines over the great outdoors?...Kids these days...LOL.

Anyway, just wanted to share today's event...and how it has truly put me in the Christmas spirit.

Things I want to say to my hubs face, but can' would be too weird, but I want him to know.

  • When I eat an apple, and I twist off the stem...I always hope it comes off on the letter "C".
  • I like looking at his butt when he has on blue jeans! I mean, I really like to stare at it...LOL.
  • I secretly like that it upsets him, when the girls haven't called, text-ed or Skype-d me for a few days. (He knows how heart broken it makes me.)
  • He REALLY needs to try pizza...not just bread sticks.
  • Getting email at work from him makes me giggle like a school girl.
  • I trust him more than anyone in this world...and for some reason, it worries me immensely.
  • Love that he sacrifices his wants for me and the girls.
  • I can only hope that we do have twin boys named, Churchill and Chamberlain--to go along with my girls, Catarina and Claudia.
  • Thinks it is amazing how he has stayed true to his roots without compromising his integrity.
  • Wish that he would NEVER have cancer again. Life without his love would be a very long road.

LSU vs Auburn...what is truly important.

This may be just another picture to you, but for me...
it is a moment in time I get to share with my lil' LSU gal!

For you, it is a national sports story at the link under the pic)
and you get to share it with her, too, but that is not the point of this story...LOL.

See that cutie with the "magenta-a form of purple" shirt on?
Holding up we're #1?
You see her?

I was so excited for this...I went frame by frame on my DVR to look for her in the end zone of the LSU/Auburn game...
and you know what?
I found her.

What a great story for her college scrapbook!
Geaux Tigers!
Geaux Catarina!

Couch to 5K

My hubs has started the Couch to 5k with me. I am already a W-unner, you know a person that will walk-run-walk-run until they reach their destination or time runs out...all depending on why and where they are running. Know what I mean?

I would like to think he has chosen to do this to keep me from being a sad, pitiful soul.
However, turns out he thinks he needs to "get rid of a few pounds".
I am running for that reason too, but also because I LOVE to run...
and I want to do a marathon one day.

Let's see how long this lasts?
