WOW, 100 and I'm Sick!

Sunday, October 3, 2010


Those blasted Aliens! No, that was not a story line I actually do have an awful early cold. You know one of those colds where you wish you were 10 again and Mom could take care of you. Not an option and that is not the worst of it. How much worse can it get?

For starters as tired and sick as I am, a water line broke dead in front of my house. From midnight to 4 in the morning I listened to jack hammers and backhoes tear up the street. If the noise were not bad enough each vehicle had a yellow strobe light attached to the top. Lit my bedroom up like a disco.

At one point, literally I had to talk myself out of just shooting those blasted disco lights. My rationale was I needed water for my homemade spice tea, that and I was sick, but the really SAD thing?

Sometime during my self induced coma I surpassed 100 followers! The bad part is, Blogger won’t give them up. (My followers will not load)Thanks to the 100th follower noticing their place in my world she kindly noted the fact in her comment.

My 100th follower was Bossy Betty. I just met Betty through The Redheaded Riter so we are still getting to know each other. I can tell you I really enjoyed what I read on her blog and would encourage all to visit. Since we are on the topic of followers…

I have hoped of someday having 100-plus followers and now that the event is here, I’m sick. I know many of you have surpassed this milestone and continue to grow; I on the other hand have struggled. I do not follow directions well; I hear a different drum.

I love my followers and the comments you leave escalate me into the stratosphere. There is nothing here in blog world more gratifying than having followers and comments.
When I follow you or comment on your blog it is a reach out. A way to let you know your words have touched me or moved me and I enjoyed it.

I want to say so much more to you my 100+ followers but I find myself zapped of strength and oxygen. Ms Bossy Betty I apologize for this not being more of a true celebration, I just do not have the energy.

Peace my children and take your vitamins.
To my European Readers, be vigilant and safe!

When you get to a 100, you are allowed a cold or two. I'm just saying....

Blech!!!! I hate being sick! Bless your heart, I hope you feel better ASAP!

I understand about the noise and lights. When we lived in our last apartment, we lived between a drug dealer and a dude who had band practice, with amps, electric guitars, and drums, from 5pm to 4am. The drug dealer had company in and out 24/7.

Yeah, I fantasized all sorts of evil things. If you'd shot out those lights, I'd have gone to court for you!

Congrats on your 100th follower, too!
