I Heart My Blogging Peeps

L got me some new speakers for my Mac - I am ROCKING OUT.  I love them!  I only have time for a short post.  I need to be in to work early tomorrow.  And by early, I mean on time - like 8:30.  I usually come in about 9:00, but tomorrow Regional HR will be there, and my boss gets all fidgety and nervous if everyone isn't bright and shiny and corporate-like.  And ON TIME.  Whatever. *shaking head and rolling eyes*
So it's off to bed early for me, so I can be *on my game* tomorrow.  I can't wait to retire...from work, I mean.  I like to retire to my bed every night with that cute boy I live with, but right now I'm talking about work.  Retiring from work.  (Let's keep it straight)
What I really wanted to write about was the overwhelmingly kind response to my last (admittedly) whiney post.  For some reason that day I was having a tough time.  After a whiney episode passes I can rarely remember why I was feeling so bad, but at the time it's crystal clear, and my unworthiness flashes in neon for all to see.  And you all responded so kindly.  Not one of you told me to suck it up.  Not one of you told me to quit whining.  It was a testament to me of the basic kindness we all are willing to show each other - even if we are technically strangers.  The responses were a mixture of family and blogging buddies, and each one lifted my spirits so much, you can't even imagine.  I'm high on life, and feel like dancing - which you do NOT want to see.  Trust me.
So thank you.  Thank you for taking the time to cheer me up, to read my meandering thoughts, to make me feel that there really are people out there who think I'm fun, and...and who - gosh darn it -  LIKE me.  I really do appreciate you.  My blog is one of my happy places, and you've just made it even happier.

ps - Cute Jess in Utah cheered me up immensely with her suggestion that I look at this website:
6pm.com    (And Jess - I am thanking you now.  It's a very exciting website - SO. MANY. SHOES.)  But what was really great was that I was perusing the Kate Spade section and my boss walked in and caught me surfing the Web. Awesome.  He gave me THE LOOK.  That's the other reason I think I should be on time tomorrow.


  1. Those are some cool shoes, Karen.

    I'm glad to hear that your readers let you know you're appreciated. (Glad, but not surprised!)


  2. I LOVE LOVE LOVE those shoes! Maybe I should check out that website ;-)

  3. I knew you'd love that website as much as I do, although I'm sad to say it seems like you get into as much trouble as I do from it!


Sit down, have some red punch and cookies, and tell me EVERYTHING...
