Friday Fragments: Mostly About Blogging

I realized this week that I need to start following more blogs. I'm really good about visiting those that comment and have their blog or profile linked to their comments, but because I do that, sometimes I forget to follow them. When I visit my google reader, my blog list is actually kind of short... I need to fix that.

 *****

I was so happy to be able to Pour My Heart Out about something positive Wednesday. Things were getting admittedly whiney over here. I was annoying myself!

 *****

This time last year I was blogging about Dating. Interesting to me because the children never did find out CB was more than a friend, but my very own mother outted me with LB last month. That's a whole 'nother post, but needless to say, I wanted to reach through the phone and inflict bodily harm. My children had been truly clueless!

ETA:  Apparently my fragments were more...well... fragmented than I intended! For my non-regular readers, CB= Cute Boy from last summer, LB= Lawn Boy, currently in the picture.

*****

I never seem to be able to find a specific place to eat while I'm on a road trip. I'll decide I want to eat at a certain restaurant and not be able to find one. Then I give up and settle only to have it turn up at the next exit when I get back on the road.

Seems to happen EVERY TIME!

Happy *almost* First Day of Fall! We are finally enjoying some cooler temps Below the Mason Dixon Line!

I love that fall's here!! :) Been looking forward to it after the hot summer!

Diane said...

I am so happy about the cooler temps. I always feel beat down from the heat come the end of August!

We had a super hot summer this year so I am thrilled for the cooler weather oh and for Friday night football.

Emmy said...

Sounds like you need a smart phone to help you find the place you want to eat :)

And yes, life is easier when kids are clueless about somethings.

And you know, I wonder if I do the same thing in regards to following, in fact I know at times I have as some blogs I read regularly I realized I wasn't following.

My list on Google Reader is way too long but I am happy I have it because I am notified when there's something new and I can stop by ... right now I have over 700 unread items though -sigh-

I still remember a trip when I was a little obsessed with Steak N Shake (not too much now) and as we entered Missouri, I pronounced that we needed to pull off for this Steak N Shake because there would be no others for the whole trip. The kids really enjoyed pointing many more after that one.
CB, LB - pardon me for guessing LB = Last Boyfriend? but CB doesn't make sense. Real initials and you only date guys with last names starting with 'B'?

I follow tons of blogs. At first I thought I should cut back, but I love them all. Now I don't try to visit them all, just see what pops up in my reader when I open it up. I can't get to everyone, but I don't want to let go of anyone.

Keetha Broyles said...

Yay! ANOTHER blogger who actually knows that fall doesn't begin until tomorrow!

I put out a bright little fall vignette by the garage door a while ago in honor of fall.

And yes - - - it was the FIRST and probably ONLY fall decor I'll do.

Keetha Broyles said...

Oh, one more thing - - - I'm SURE if you want blogs to follow, a WHOLE BUNCH OF US will volunteer to be your guinea pigs.

;-)

I read a lot of blogs but I follow few. I have about 25 blogs now that I check out once or twice a week in rotation.

Laurie Matherne said...

Hmmmm. CB and LB do sound curious. I am with Bill on this one. Last Boyfriend. Is the other initials for Cute Boyfriend or Cuddly Boyfriend? Or maybe his name is CB.

Charlotte Klein said...

Oh, HIIIIIII, sexy momma! I've missed you :)

OMG, your mom cracks me up. I mean, I know that must've sucked that she outed you and all, but you have to admit she's kind of a riot. So how did the kids take the news?? I take it things are going well (have SO MUCH catching up to do!)

I'm the same way re: roadtrips. I just keep fingers crossed there's a Cracker Barrel along the way. I never see them up along these here parts and it's become a vacation staple for me. Love their hashbrown casserole. Drool.

I hope you've had a great week.

I do follow blogs, but then I feel badly because I don't always get to them in a week. I need to remember that the internet is permanent and it's doesn't matter if I visit that post a week from now. I think I"m still in the TV mode, and think it has to be immediate or on the day it posts.

Karen and Gerard said...

I have a blogroll of my favorite blogs I follow regularly and visit them from that. Sometimes I'll go through my reader too, but only if I have extra time which is rare.

hoorah for fall!!

I hate that--missing great meal opportunities,especially if you don't get to do it very often.

Thanks for linking up :)

Off to read your Pour Your HeartOut post!

Thanks for the LB, CB decoding - I thought there was a secret code that I didn't know.
