I swore I would not do this.
I SAID I hate bloggers that leave their blogs and come back.
Well...hey. I am back. So, right now I HATE me and I am a big hypocrite.
I accept that.
Forgive me other bloggers that have done this...I am in your tent now.
I simply have too much to say - and those of you that followed me over to Facebook were all, like, "Gawd Skip...get a damn blog already. You are wordy as hell."
Yeah. I do tend to talk a LOT. Not FB or Twitter worthy, believe me. I was close to getting banned. [KIDDING!]
So, I am back. Just a bit different, this time.
I always said I wrote "I Make Soap" for my family. THAT is true. But guess what...the kids grew up.
And they know what is going on....and it ain't pretty. My health is sucky. Has been. You guys know this...but now...all those niggly little questions you SO wanted to know? I will answer them. I didn't write them before on the blog or admit because the kids didn't know. Now they do.
And? Now? I get to talk about the GREAT, the BAD and the UGLY. Plus, the ridiculous and funny that seems to keep happening in our part of the world. And if you are lucky you MIGHT get a recipe.
And know there is going to be a helluva' lot of fun stuff on here. I never disappoint. Steven and I have spent many a night re reading what I have already written - just stuff that happened - but we discovered I am pretty damn funny. To us anyway. Some of the conversations I have written down don't mean a lot to you all, but my gosh, they make us stupid laughing. So? There. giggle
And, no my punctuation is not getting better. It will continue suck. I can't proofread to save my life, [then again I am wondering who can HA - YES - sick humor is still around. What did you expect?] and I think I need to start an orphanage for how many commas I *adopt* when I write this blog. [that was for you Fitz] I am a comma hoarder. I know this.
So..THAT is all going to stay the same.
But, now? I am going to cuss a bit. Not much..but some things make me so incredibly mad [think health care in THIS country] that an occasional "shit" and "fuck" are going to sneak in, sorry about that.
Right now? I am back in the house, stuck [and I LOVE our home] occasionally out in Ozcarz and trying my best. But I am now writing this blog for ME. Stay, insult me, love me, leave.....at this point, I know who my friends are and I will take care of you and try not to offend you.
You guys are tried and true - and I would NEVER have made it this far without you. I only ask that you not question what I do with my children - that's all.
Question, complain, bitch at me if you will...but Sr, Dee, Tee, Squirrel and Wallene are off limits. That's all I ask.
Steven and I are fair game. Just when you hear our decisions - don't question our position with the kids. Okay?
I know you all. My Tadpoles. Gosh, I love you guys....there is a lot of honesty coming...you have probably already figured out a lot...but ....I need this.
I need this blog.
Otherwise I think I am going to chew Steven's ear off. Ask those on FB - they know. giggle
See you on the FLIPSIDE! I AM BACK - about 12 pm today.
Love and miss you all. JG
