One thousand, five hundred and eighty-six posts later, I'm still going.
My niece S. and I are the talkers in the family. Conversation lagging at a family gathering? Ask one of us how we're doing, and we're off to the races.
And the funny thing is, while S. has always been a talker, I didn't used to be that way. Until I started blogging, and now when somebody asks me what's up, I just think about what I've written about on my blog lately, and away we go.
Well, except for all the stuff I write about my crazy-ass family. That all stays right here. A couple family members know that I have a blog, but they don't know how to find it. Except for Texas, of course. Hi Tex!
So! Thanks, Blogger, for prompting me with conversational fodder for boring-ass family dinners. And thanks to my readers, for helping me through some really trying times.
Here's to five more years of bitching and laughing and crying and posting cat photos and bitching some more. Gosh, this is fun.
