Since my first post a year ago, my blog has become an important tool much like my minivan, my new bistro pots & pans (shiny, shiny BTW), and my binoculars. Like my van, my blog gets me from point A to point B with a little fuel in the form of commenters. Like my pots and pans its content nourishes me. Like my binoculars, it hangs around my neck and zooms in on things that I want to take a closer look at. It’s also a big time-sucking pain in the ass at times (like my kids ; ) except it behaves nicely at Applebee’s. I wish I had actually taken my blog out. You can get your own blogoversary widget here. Dinner optional.
