Fish or Cut Bait

I vaguely recall ranting about bloggers who drop out of sight without any explanation. How dare they disappear from the internet with no warning! I wish I could explain my own absence with a nice juicy tale of intrigue, but the boring truth is that I've been 1) busy and 2) uninspired.

And 3) exhausted.

I feel rather depressed/resentful/bitter that Google Reader is shutting down, because I worked so hard to build a RSS readership (really, Kim? You call your mother, husband, and three kindly strangers a "readership"?) I should probably get cracking and research a replacement RSS . . . and then try to convince anyone who swings by to take the time to re-subscribe to my blog. It might help if I posted more than once a month.

I hereby pledge to start writing on a regular basis . . . to reconnect with bloggy friends . . . to take beautiful pictures of ugly moose. And to lose weight, speak sweetly to my children, and water my hanging flowers.

This is the year that my flowers shall survive throughout the entire summer!


Dinner last night: sub sandwiches, potato salad, baked beans, fruit salad

I need to find a Google Reader alternative, too. Let me know if you find anything good.

I previously followed through my blogger but changed over to bloglovin and love it. Easy to read everything and easy to move your blog to that one:)
I know I havent posted on mine recently but my laptop is busted. LOL Cant upload pics and do a post from my nook!

Even though I'm a little behind here, I'm glad you're back.

(Bloglovin' is a GREAT alternative to Google Reader. Once I got used to it, I discovered I actually like it a lot better.)
