... and by "it" I mean the blog.
You see, I kind of let things slip while Tam was away. Ok... it's been slipping before then. Perhaps I should explain.
Last week Tam was gone on vacation. I was also gone for work. And... I wasn't really invested in the blog. My thoughts were elsewhere, like how to climb my corporate ladder, and how I probably should try my best to not sound dumb in front of home office higher-ups and commit corporate suicide.
You know... priorities. Try my best to remain employed while trying to position myself for growth within my company... or concentrate on the blog. I know, it's a tough decision to make.
But, to be fair, I have kind of been half-donkeying it for a while now. Or at least I feel like I have. I've actually felt this way since before I went on vacation to Europe. I have been busy with other things, and the blog hasn't been much of a priority. Maybe the novelty has worn off. Maybe the season of summer has beckoned me to enjoy time outside and doing other fun stuff. Maybe my new work schedule just wipes me out mentally more than I want to realize.
I do have intentions of getting back into the blogging game. I have quite a few posts started, like:
How amazing my daughter Faith is at riding horses, and how she already has her college and major selected... at the age of TWELVE!
Why Tam has a picture of a peeing buffalo in her Bible.
How amazing my husband is.
How Tam needs to start raising dogs and/or horses, and/or mini donkeys to be service pets. And why we are disappointed there isn't such a creature as a mini camel.
How it feels to vomit while sitting next to coworkers... because that has happened to me this past week. Please look above to the comment about corporate suicide and trying to avoid it at all cost.
How I superglued my hand to the bottle of superglue while trying to fix my shoe in my car while I was getting ready for a date, and how I ruined my favorite jeans (and my steering wheel) in the process. And, I have pictures for this one!
You know... stuff like that.
But, right now, I'm just in a blogging funk.
And, I think my funk may have killed the blog.
As you may know, Tam is the IT brains behind this blog. I know how to type, and that's about it. She is amazing with stat counters and other computer stuff. I just use the generic counter on the blogger website, and i basically judge my success by the comments.
This last week... crickets.
And my generic stat counter keeps taunting me with, "no one wants to read about your stupid texts to Tam, Lori."
Stupid stat counter.
I kind of want to punch it in the throat, but I won't because I'm not like that... and because it doesn't have a throat for me to punch. But if it did, I may take a swing, just for fun. But then I'd feel bad, and then I'd have to learn all of Tam's techie statcounters, so I think I'll stick with the one I have... even though I hate it because it puts me down.
Yeah, I have issues.
Anyway, dear readers... if you are still out there... please give us a comment, or a "hi" on our facebook page (you can find the link on this page), register to get our blog via email, or SOMETHING to let us know you are still there, and that I haven't caused you to run from our blog.
Also, please let us know if you like the blog... if you do like it, what do you like?
If you hate it, what do you hate about it?
And please don't tell me that it's me, because my ego is fragile enough as it is about such things right now.
As if me asking you to comment to make myself feel good about my blogging hobby isn't desperate enough.
Yeah, my issues are showing, aren't they.
