Where Did The Time Go?

My blog is TWO.   Really!  I had to go look it up.  I have been doing this for TWO years, not one.  My spelling and grammar should be way better that this! 

Now that I realize that I missed my blog's anniversary last year, I feel guilty.  If I had just been a teensy-bit late, maybe I could have sent flowers and pretend that I messed up the date.  To miss an anniversary by an entire year?  I am not really sure how that works.  If you're married and your spouse forgets an anniversary, you certainly don't sit there and stew over it for a year.  Right?

I have always been a bit of a commitment-phobe.  Weird, huh?

Maybe it was all the moving around. Or maybe it is just my personality.  I used to get extremely restless after the first month or so of any relationship, personal or professional.  Whenever I thought about staying with the same person, or living in the same place, my palms would get all sweaty and I'd hyperventilate.  This would even happen if I had the same lab partner for longer than a class period.

You know all those girls in elementary school who play-pretended to be married?  My play marriages tended to be very short affairs; then I would get bored, and whatever the rest of the boys were doing looked suddenly fascinating.   I knew that I wanted to get married; I just didn't want to do it right that minute. 

And then, before I knew it, I had been seeing the same OB-GYN for almost twenty years.  And the same 'hair-therapist' for twelve years(Don't Judge!).

I woke up one day and realized that maybe commitment wasn't so bad.  There's something to be said for having a long-term relationship with someone, I told myself.
I even went back to the dentist I had had as a teenager.  And I actually got married!  If I hyperventilate now, it's usually because I've been running after a little boy without my inhaler.  

So when I started this blog, I did not expect to be still at it two years later.  I didn't even expect to be writing every day! I also didn't expect to meet so many friendly, funny, and extremely helpful people out there in Blog-Land.  You guys have kept me going, even when I was tired and brain-dead.  I have had a great time writing just for the sake of writing! 

So Happy Anniversary Blog!  This is more proof I can commit.  Or proof that I should be committed. 


  1. Happy Bloggiversary to you! Now go bake a can do it! At least some cookies.

  2. Happy Anniversary!!! I have commitment issues too. Actually, I have change issues. Don't tell anyone, but I haven't seen the dentist in forever and ever amen. But only because he retired during my first pregnancy. The new guy's an a-hole.

  3. Woo Hoo!!! That's awesome, congrats. I'm with Andera, go bake a cake. I like vanilla. Hehe!

  4. Two years?? Wow, your blog is the old lady in my little circle. Have you written every day for two years? The only thing I've done every day for two years is peed. Apparently I'm not big on commitment, either.


  5. You're just a little older than me then!!! But I certainly don't write every day - I'm clearly the greater commitment-phobe!!

    Seriously, congratulations! That's a great milestone!!


I welcome comments, but reserve the right to correct your spelling because I am OCD about it!
