It’s my blogoversary. Woo hoo! I can’t believe my baby is one year old today. Funny how so many things can change in a year. I started this blog as a way to share my daughter’s/dog’s antics with everyone. They just produce so much laughter and enjoyment I felt selfish not letting everyone join in on the fun. My very first post was about my fear of turning into a crazy dog lady. Followed by one of my favorite posts about what, on a daily basis, comes out of my daughter’s mouth.
And then, a mere month into my family oriented blog things started to turn sour. A bad breakup with my significant other resulted in an unfortunate whine/rant/bitchfest for approximately three months. It all started with this post, and evolved into this sad tale.
While still feeling sad and bitter I posted this which was the precursor to my Feisty Fridays. I still had some humor left in me and began posting more of my daughter’s snarky remarks. Then came the first, ever, Feisty Friday.
The new year saw me coming out of the dark pit of despair and I started dabbling in MS Paint for added entertainment. I also managed to eek out some fun interviews with the girl child, included more of the child’s crazy antics and found no more need for the nasty bitchfest posts.
Things were looking up again and I was getting my zany self back. I began focusing more on everything around me…and not so much the things inside me. I wanted to have fun so I, like many other bloggers, delved into the craziness of the search engine. And now, as 2LD turns one, it seems I’ve come full circle as I look to my post a few days ago about puppers.
Some of you have been along for the entire ride, and I want you to know how much I truly appreciate all of your support, your comments, your humor…you helped me get through an amazingly difficult time and I often think back and wonder if I ever would have come out of my funk so quickly if it hadn’t been for this blog and the outpouring of support and uplifting words. For those of you who are new here…thank you for joining me. You, too, make every day a pleasure with your comments, your input and your friendships. Here’s to another great year…and many, many more!
