We got home at 11:30pm. Alex slept for about 72 minutes of the 8 hour trip and the last couple hours I had to occupy him with my iPhone because Mallory was sleeping. So if you got a text from me late last night...sorry!
Jennifer at Playgroups are No Place for Children did a post last week about her first commenter. It got me thinking about my blogging career. I started the blog (and it had a different name) mainly for friends and family to read...and it showed. My family NEVER leaves comments....so everyday. Crickets.
My first commenter is a friend that I met on a Mommy message board for gals that had babies in April 2006. We are also IRL friends because we met on my way home from Milwaukee last summer. She commented on a post I did about the enormous amount of snow we had in our yard. Please visit Angie at Kiddos Life and say hi!
My first Spam commenter's name was Jason and he had this to say:
hey, here is the site i was talking about where i made the extra cash......
On February 20, 2008...I discovered Mrs. Fussypants and she helped me FIGHT the FRUMP. Here is my first post where I attempted to improve my situation and my first time mentioning my desire for a sister-wife. I got 12 comments and thought it was freakin Christmas!
And then....there is the post where I met TWO fabulous Utah people. I was bitching and moaning about not being able to find a bakery to purchase my daughter's first birthday cake....and then apparently, I was bitching and moaning in the comment section of Jennifer at Playgroups are No Place for Children's blog about Utah. Loralee and Jess saw my comment and came over and introduced themselves. By the way, Jess....we STILL haven't met in person.
Hmmm....It's looking like I owe Jennifer a beer or two.
Have a GREAT weekend! I have lots of cleaning and laundry to do.
