Kate over at The Suddenly Kate Show and Momuboocrea Island reminded me that it was my blogoversary (because I've been too busy to even notice-what would I do without her!!). I cannot believe it's been an entire year, but at the same time I feel like I've been blogging forever!
But as for my year of blogging, I've learned so much about not only myself, but stitching (a subject I thought I had already mastered...silly moi), and tons of other subjects that I never thought I would care about. I've met some amazing people and even gained an amazing bestie that hopefully will be a friend for life (that is until you get sick of me Katie and then Tony will be pissed because he'll have to deal with me all by himself!). I've been able to vent my frustrations and share my thoughts without the burden of seeing indifference in a person's face. I've also participated in some amazing challenges, something I'd never do in "the real world". I'm almost borderline social now (I know, scary prospect)!
Hopefully with my new work schedule, my blogging (and stitching) will get back on track. I have an idea for a new blog series..."Disney Planning 101 - The OCD View" and I have tons of reviews I need to do of shows I've been watching lately. I'd really like to get at least one of my WIP's done before the end of the year. I have a backlog of books I haven't read yet that fill an entire bookshelf. But most importantly, I have an upcoming Disney trip to plan!!
I do have blogging thanks to give...of course to Kate, whose support and friendship I would be at a loss without. Vickie at the Reading And Stitching blog, without whom I never would have started blogging in the first place. Joyce at Random Ramblings who has not only allowed me to participate in the International Hermit And Stitch Weekends, but is my stitching guru master and fellow gamer! Tom at TomBadguy.com, who makes me want to be like him when I grow up...brutally honest and an amazing and passionate blogger! Of course there are tons of others and I hope no one feels left out, I do appreciate each and every one of you guys!
I wish I had the time to celebrate properly, but tomorrow is judgement day (so to speak). The docs had their exec meeting tonight and it was uncommonly short (which could be either bad or good), but hopefully tomorrow I will know everything...my new job title, my duties, my new pay rate, and whether or not I'll be hourly or salaried. Scary stuff! Even worse, it means I have one more day to milk as much knowledge as I can get from the guy I'm replacing! Needless to say, my blogoversary will be celebrated with a couple of Guinnesses and an early night.
Thank you from the bottom of my tiny itty bitty soul for supporting me during this past year and I'm really looking forward to the next year to come, not just for me, but for all my blogging friends!
