Just over two years ago...

I completely forgot that the 27th was the two year anniversary of this blog. That's kind of sad. Then again, with it being so close to Christmas, it is easy to forget. Just ask anyone who has a birthday just after Christmas, people tend to forget about it. Actually, my step-mom's birthday is the day after Christmas, so we give her our present when we see her for Christmas. She doesn't get screwed out of a gift, but it's all done together, which isn't much different.

Anyway, the blog. Yes, so two years. Does it feel much different? No, not much has changed here. I looked at last year's anniversary post to see who I thanked for coming by and commenting. It's still the same people. That's okay, though. It's still fun, that's the only reason I started this anyway, to have some fun and be stupid sometimes. Pretty much like a normal day for me.

Speaking of stupid, have you seen the Cat Emery board thing? I've seen things like this a long time ago? How is it any different? I don't see how it would make the cat's claws less sharp. It's not like the thing is going to take them out, or anything.

Sorry, I've been seeing that commercial a lot and had to say something.

A few months ago I joined a group on Flickr that is taking up a little of my time. That's one of the reasons I've been a little lax in posting lately. It's been a lot of fun, but it also makes me want a new, and nicer, camera. And take a photography class so I know what I'm doing.

Also, not to end on a downer, but we just found our daughter needs her tonsils out. As you may know, the kids have had a bad stretch of strep throat this year. I think she has had it five times over the course of the year, so it's not like this was a surprise. It's going to be interesting, she's not a fan of doctors, or anything that includes pain. This should be fun!

So, in closing, I'd like to say thanks for coming by. Especially, Florinda, Cookie, Mr. Unfocused, Dreamybee, Carly, Karen, DC (who pops in now and again) and anybody else who comes by here, whether you comment or not. Thanks for reading!

Did you thank your wife for getting you to start a blog in the first place? /nag

I am so sorry that the tonsils have to come out, but I'm glad that it means the end of her being sick so much. Well, it better mean that.

Two years of blogging? Good man! Keep it up!


Florinda said...

Happy Blogiversary! Two years have gone by pretty fast, haven't they? Hope you'll be sticking around for a third :-).

Hopefully having the tonsils out will mean the end of the endless strep - good luck!

Dreamybee said...

Happy blogiversary! I saw a stupid commercial for something the other day and I totally thought of you! Of course, I don't remember what it was, but I remember thinking that I might see it on your blog in the near future.

Bummer about the tonsils. I hope that takes care of everything and 2010 will be a better, healthier year for your daughter.

Cookie: She did get me started really, she just said she was going to do it and I roughy it was a good idea. It's not the same thing. Really!


Florinda: Thanks! I'll be here. We hope the same thing. It's going to be rough at first.

Dreamybee: Thanks. I wonder what the commercial was for. I'll keep my eyes open.
