I've noticed that the Follower Count is on the uptick lately.
Ok....I more than casually 'noticed', I confess. I'm one of those blogger types that checks my 'numbers' every time I log on.
I live and breathe my Follower Count.
When I get a new one my heart smiles.
And when I lose one I beat myself about the breast, look to the heavens and shout, "Why?...Why!?!? What did I do to so offend?!"
Well knowing how I am, it's really NOT a shock when I lose a Follower.
With my sarcastic wit, love of all things ribald, love of all things artsy-even show tunes!, and unorthodox approach to life and societal norms, I KNOW that Sluggy is not everyone's cuppa tea.
And there is all that boring stuff too that I am famous for.....couponing, homemaking, hoarding/decluttering, personal finance, fiscal responsibility, political views, frugal hacks, raising kids, ranting against those that offend me, living below ones means, sewing & other projects, and not buying meaningless crap in order to fill one's perceived meaningless life.
It's a wonder some times how ANYONE puts up with me for longer than a week or two! ;-)
This is just my quirky, strange way to say Thank You to everyone who puts up with me and my blog.
To all the commenters and all the
And if you are new, try not to be put off if I don't comment on your comment. I am really bad, nah!....infamous!! for neglecting to respond to comments. It is something I continue to work on about myself but progress is slow. I have the comment feature on moderation just so that I NEVER MISS READING A SINGLE COMMENT THAT IS LEFT FOR ME. It's not that I don't trust what people will say, I moderate because I don't want to miss anything any of you want to say to me without having to slog through every post I have ever written every day. ;-)
If you truly need my attention straightaway, instead of leaving a comment, please email me directly. My email addy is there in my "About Me" thingamabob.
I'm not one to get all giddy about Valentine's Day. Do we seriously need a forced Holiday to remind us to show our affection toward those we love? If so, I'd venture to say that the human race is doomed.....
So as not to be a downer on this
Me? I'll put in phone calls to my eldest two kiddos and I have a present for my youngest which he will enjoy. I have sweets for my sweetie(Hubs) and a card(a funny one of course!) and we'll share a date tonight at a small romantic spot. Afterwards, we'll return home and he'll busy himself in front of the tv watching some combination of political news and sports coverage before falling asleep in his recliner.
I'll spend some time working on this year's FAFSAs(we get the honor of doing 2, yay me!), pour myself a glass of wine and read some blogs before crawling into bed by 2am.
Ah, the romance of the old married couple......
Take time today and everyday to show your loved ones how you feel about them.
