We are leaving this morning for a two-week vacation. First with my sister and her family in Atlanta, then with Gunny and his family in Tulsa. ( I envy people who have their siblings and children all in the area!)
I doubt that I’ll be able to post during that time, so I’m leaving you on your own. But here’s the plan. I’m going to leave an old post that I like on each of the days that I’m gone and you can read that. But, only read the one for that day, okay? That way you will have something to read here everrrrry day. How hard can it be to come up with thirteen posts I like and would like for you to read from the “old days,” right?
Okay, I’ll be back to posting, hopefully, on the fourteenth. So, here are 13 “oldies but goodies.”
Update: I decided you need an “oldie” for today too, so go here for a post I wrote at the beginning of my fiction writing class a year ago.
Be safe tonight, and may your new year be blessed in ways that you havn’t even thought of! Happy 2009!
Thursday, January 1: A lesson I learned when I was applying for a job I reallllly wanted is in here.
Friday, January 2: The story of my arrival into a family who I’m pretty sure weren’t expecting me is here.
Saturday, January 3: Can you be too nice? Here’s my argument that you can!
Sunday, January 4: When I finally found one, here’s the story of my first job.
Monday, January 5: Would you put that label there, if you knew it was going to be permanent? Read here.
Tuesday, January 6: Dieting. The best way to do it is with a sense of humor. Read here about the differences between how I do it and how Hubby does it!
Wednesday, January 7: A fable with a great lesson we can all profit from is here.
Thursday, January 8: Hubby’s birthday! Do you know who he shares it with? Read here.
Friday, January 9: My mama was an interesting person. Here are some of my memories of her on ironing day when I was little.
Saturday, January 10: When we were at DD’s house last year, she and I wrote a story together. She would write a paragraph, and then me, and then her, etc. It was fun, and the result came out surprisingly well! You can read it here.
Sunday, January 11: I was having a bad morning, and it was raining too, then I had an unexpected encounter that made the whole day better! Read it here.
Monday, January 12: It was just a business trip to visit some truck dealers, but I had more of an adventure than I had bargained for! Read it here.
Tuesday, January 13: And finally, read here for my memories of sharing a hospital room with a “blonde bombshell” when I had DD.
If you paced yourself, you should be arriving here on the 13th. If you did, here is a bonus for you. It’s one of my favorites. I hope it makes you laugh.
I’ll be back! Hope you enjoy these old favorites of mine. May God keep you safe until we meet again.
