Happy Birthday Bloggie! You know I loves me some you.
Once, two years ago, I was in a sad sad place of just having been dumped. I used you to help me, you know. I wrote in you, I wrote about you, I wrote to you, I just wrote. I was looking for some type of closure, and writing in my little journal at home just wasn’t cutting it. Pacing around my house checking my phone every two minutes wasn’t cutting it, drinking enough to make the pain go away wasn’t cutting it, nor was crying every damn second of every day cutting it either.
And then, well then, I found you. I wrote to you about my fears, about my thoughts, about my little girl, about my life, and from that day on, well Bloggie, you and I have been good friends. In fact, you’ve become like a sibling, without all the annoying habits of a sibling!
You’ve brought me things I never imagined. Like what, you may ask?
You brought me my Cookie, because when THE Random Esquire first commented to me in you, I was immediately aware of the fact that this person offered me a wisdom and comfort about my situation that I was not seeing myself. And now, well Cookie IS like a sibling, annoying habits and all! Thank you Bloggie!
You’ve allowed me to ask questions, let me tell you about the Weird Things that happen to me, you’ve allowed me to put a custom header here for you, made by my fabulous friend Cindy Booga. I know you love that header as much as I do. A big tacklehug to the rest of EE Bitches too. You guys mean the world to me, even 8 years later.
Through you, I started reading other single parent blogs, and while I haven’t met some of these fabulous people, I know that T’s Quest, MindyMom, Depot Dad, Danielle, Dad’s House, Rachel from Single Mom Seeking, CaNook and his sweet sweet lover Sunshine, have helped me along in this thing that I live called Life. And they’ve done so with caring, with laughter, with love and with compassion. Well, sort of. ;)
Then I met me some VinoMom, started loving her blog. I’ve enjoyed reading through Jen’s posts and thought Shiloh was utterly too cute for words. Pippi has become a blog that I get a kick out of and I love having her here as well! Big City Dad is coming along nicely in his blog, even if it is NOT on WordPress. ;)
Unbelievable but, people started reading this blog. I was a bit surprised at that. Like, actual readers. Of you, Bloggie!
And when these readers started commenting, supporting me, laughing along with me, teasing me, making ME laugh? Oh my goodness Bloggie, I loved you even more. Through you I’ve met Linda – one my favorite commenter’s. And of course, Angel, who makes me grin everyday. I know that you love them as much as I do, Bloggie.
Through you Bloggie, I’ve introduced some of the people in my life to these readers. You all know the love of my life, Miss Emilee, and her witty ways. You’ve come to know ShaNaNa, and of course who could forget that her thinking that this <3 was not a heart, but no, a balls and penis. You know my Wingman, who has known me even longer than ShaNaNa and loves me still. Odd, but true. You’ve come to know that LetEmBreathe is my bestest buddy at work, and hopefully, another lifelong friend. You’ve learned of Twitch and Googlie, my two favorite boobs that work on my team and who make my work life fun and interesting almost every day.
And so I thank you Bloggie, for remaining the constant, fun, HAPPY thing in my life.
Love and Bacon,
