NaBloPo No Mo

This is my final post for nablopomo and I am happy to say I am finally working on my own computer again! Best Buy came through for me and finished fixing it before the end of November. (hahaha) I'm so happy to have it back.. but I'm also happy to say that despite the inconvenience (mostly to Bob since I commandeered his computer) I managed to post every day. Yay me!

Ok.. enough self-congratulatory drivel. I want to take a moment to recognize my friends, old and new, who made this month fun and kept me motivated to keep posting.

Some of you only dropped by a few times but your visits were wonderful. Professor J, Your comment about my old dog warmed my heart. Don Mills Diva, I'm glad you stopped by and I'm enjoy reading your blog. MS Teacher, you are in my thoughts often. If you want to talk you know where I am.

Some of you checked in regularly and, after a month of wondering what you might like to read, I feel like you are friends.
Heidi, I am looking forward to seeing more of Norway.. and the rest of your journey. I'm a bit jealous but happy I can live vicariously through your blog. Karen Try not to stress too much about December. I have a feeling you are going to do just fine. I hope you will keep blogging when you get a chance.. at least keep posting your wardrobe! Mrs. G, what can I say? You are a nut and I love your blog. You need a few more secret boyfriends though...

Then there are two of you who have been there for me forever. You were reading my long-winded foolishness long before blogs were invented and the fact that you have stuck around for TEN years is amazing, and a bit humbling. Nic, I'm so glad you decided to start your own blog! I'm awed that you have time to write with everything else you are doing. And your post today... I'm still processing what that could possibly mean!
Leeann, You never gave up on me... even though I didn't post for months at a time. Thank you so much for your compassion and encouragement. You are such a true friend to everyone and you leave your sparkle on every person you touch.

Finally, there are a few people who I know read this blog but don't respond here. My lovely sister in law, Anne, my great friend and kindred spirit, Ellen, and my sister at heart, Bev. I love you all and I'm so excited that I might be seeing all of you at the end of December!

Writing is a solitary business, mostly done within the confines of the empty space between my ears, but there would be very little reason to waste my time if no one ever read what I wrote. Thank you so much for giving me the gift of your time... I hope that this is just the beginning.

Aw Gina! Thank you for writing. I have said it for 10 years. You are an awesome writer and I fully expect you to write a book or something some day. Heck, who knows, maybe I will be a main character. Yea, I bet I will be because that would make it so much more interesting. You could write all about how I am constantly complaining about everything. And about how much I like to buy and wear makeup and clothes and jewelry and, well, how much I just like to shop. Yea, that would be really interesting stuff. Then you could talk about how I hate school and how I love school and how I hate, well, you get the picture. lol Yup, when you are ready to write that book, I will be available (for a small stipend) to feed you with lots of interesting material.

Gina, I'm so glad to have "found" you! I will definitely keep reading about all your doings - and with that new computer, you have no excuse but to post, post, post.

I know -- NaBlow is finally over for all your crazy girls who signed up for it, but I hope that doesn't mean that you stop posting altogether. The withdrawal would be too much for me to handle! What with Christmas stress and whatnot.

Have a great - blogfree? - weekend, and I'll catch up with you soon!

Heidi :)

Congratulations on completing all 30 days! You have done such a beautiful job with your blog. I really enjoy it.

And you and your friendship?

There are no words.

I just got lucky, I guess.

Love you, babe.

I never expected to make new friends doing NaBloPoMo. What an unexpected gift!

Gina, I'm so glad to have found you through've been doing a great job and I'm a big fan. I love learning more about you and your family. And of course I enjoy your writing, so do keep up with it! Your comments have been keeping me going too. And I'm too addicted to blogging to give it up... I'll probably end up blogging most days anyways, just to vent and stay sane :)
