Yo, woman! Get your butt off the couch and update the blog!Seriously, that is a direct cut and paste from the email my friend Shirley sent me. She was feeling all giddy like because where she lives (Seattle) the sun finally decided to shine. Sure it's easy for her to be all happy and bossy when she's got sunshine. But you know I don't like to disappoint so Shirley - this one is for you :-)
I haven't been not blogging for any particular reason other than I've got nothin', nada, zilch, zero. I'm out of words. There has not been one exciting thing happening in my life since January began. It is the dog days of winter people and I really hate the cold. REALLY HATE THE COLD. I have no idea why I live where I do, I guess it is because we don't have bugs year round - the cold kills them off. So I've made my choice - cold and no bugs for half the year. I hate bugs even more than I hate the cold :-) My special bug hatred used to be saved for spiders but I think I've moved past spiders (I still don't like them) and moved on to beetles. YUCK. And the variety of beetles you can find is truly mind boggling. Seriously, we used to own Childcraft Encyclopedias when I was growing up (my personal favorites were Holiday's and Customs and How We Get Things) I've seen these things, I know. The beetles had a big section in one of those books - probably Gross Things You Wish You Had Never Seen :-)
So that is it - the sum total of what has been happening in my house. NOTHING but the minute something big happens you will be the first to know :-)
Oh, just so you know I haven't been a complete couch potato, I have been having some fun with Facebook - most of my first cousins are on there and since we are spread all over the country (Seattle, LA, San Diego, Destin Fl, Iowa, Michigan etc.) it has been kind of fun chatting and "meeting" their friends. I know I know Facebook - but what can I say... Besides with all this connecting you just never know when you are going to get an invite to a warm destination (for a vacation in the sun I can live with the bugs).
