This is my 500th Post.
Two years, and nine months ago, to the day, I started blogging. I can't remember why I even started. I do know I loved reading The Pioneer Woman daily, and she kind of inspired me. Of course, I don't have a cattle ranch, four kids or a Marlboro Man, so my blog is completely different.
I tried to think of something special to write today. I mean, after all, this is number 500!! I went to read my first ever post, and noticed that not a lot has changed. I mentioned that I'm lazy, and what do you know, I'm still pretty lazy. I mentioned not getting a lot done on Sundays, and that still rings true. I still have that blonde chunk at the front of my head. I still have an insatiable need for cheese. (I've also included pictures of myself, one from each year I've been blogging. Yes, they are in chronological order. It's a plethora of JuJu.)
Much has stayed the same. I'm still confused. I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up. I still love America's Next Top Model. (All Stars in September!) But, as the world turns, so does change occur!
For one thing, my kids have grown. Taylor has gone from being a blonde to a redhead to a darker redhead. She's graduated high school, started college, took time off from college and returned to college. She and her first love broke up, and we've seen her go through a few more boys in these years. Her skin has gone from totally plain to quite tatted. She's on the cusp of moving out of the house. Jake has graduated from college, taken the LSAT, and finished his first year of law school.
I returned to watching American Idol. I started watching, and now adore, Project Runway. I'm still watching All My Children, although, not for much longer. I'm on my third laptop and my second couch. I've seen four Harry Potters in this time frame.
Many of our friends have married and are now having children. Heck, I got married!! My nest is emptying, and theirs are growing! We had the best World Cup party. Friends moved back from far away. Friends moved too far away. We lost our Bailey Boy.
I never thought I'd stick with this for as long as I have. (Heck, this blog has lasted longer than my first marriage!) But, I think I'm in it for the long haul. Here's to the next 500!!
