I have a plan!!

As some of you know, I have gotten wayyyyy out of the habit of writing posts here.  But recently it occurred to me that I should have been making copies of each of my posts as I went — instead of looking at copying almost 1,000 of them now.

Soooo, as I started copying them (and actually enjoying reading them again), I decided that I would post the ones I copy again, as I make the copy.  We’ll see how this works.  I may even slip in an original once in a while.

I started this blog in September, 2007, at the strong suggestion of my daughter (If you know her, you know how “persuasive” she can be — read that “pushy”).  But as it turns out, she was right — I’m so glad I got all these stories down.  Thanks, DD.

Here is post #1.

An Introduction to My Mother

My Mom is a funny lady.  She is hesitant about starting a blog but I know she will love it as soon as she gets a few comments (don’t forget to leave one).  Mostly she is truthful except everything she writes about me which is a complete fabrication.  She drinks (tea) way too much.  Actually, if she would have a real drink once in a while she’d think blogging is a terrific idea.

She lives with my Dad in retirement bliss  (his entire family is within earshot).  They’ve been married forever and are the only happily married couple that I know.  Okay, that’s a bit of an overstatement…..they are the happiest married couple I know.

Growing up with a funny mother has lots of advantages and one disadvantage — the funny is contagious.  Here’s hoping you enjoy her wit and charm as much as I do.  I love you Mom.

    You’ve definitely had some past posts that bear repeating every five or six years. 🙂 Your lovely DD is indeed persuasive, as evidenced by her enticing me into the blogging world, too. You’re right about the copying. One at a time is much less challenging than hundreds at once. I started a project like that with my own blog awhile back, but my enthusiasm waned before I got very far. Time to get back at it.

    Well, read “L” as “Linda.” I guess I got tired of typing before I finished my name.

    Thanks for the encouragement, L … I mean, “Linda”. 🙂

    What a great introduction!

    Your daughter is a funny lady, too.

    Oops, I forgot to say how much I agree with you about printing them off from the start. I didn’t do that either, and even though I don’t have 1000, there are still a lot.

    (And speaking of re-reading, t’s not very pleasant to come upon those grammatical errors in my old posts, but perhaps it will stifle my urge to be such a Grammar Nazi to others, meaning: I should get the log out of my own eye first.)
