I'm un-jinxing myself!


SO...here's my theory...the guys at the blogworld expo in Las Vegas last year jinxed me!
You know those guys that were promoting a blogging movie out of a VW bug? They handed out stickers that read "I Can't Stop Blogging". After Jack and I arrived home with our bags o swag (stuff we all get at these expo thingys), I put my sticker on my new laptop. As ridiculously superstitious as it sounds the freaking sticker has put some sort of anti blogging hex on my computer. Not a single post since I put that stupid thing on there. Coincidence? ...I think not.
So this is my official un-jinxing post.

The fact I haven't blogged in awhile couldn't possibly have anything to do with the fact Jack returned from 15 months of desert fun, my fifteen year old had a melt down and moved to Chicago (to live with her dad for the first time since she was 4yrs old), I volunteer for my 5 and 6 yr olds Parent teacher organization, I am working on my master's in Accounting, or I just started a full time job. Nah none of those things interfere with blogging at all. It's the darn sticker I'm sure of it.

I intend to begin blogging again...right after I scrub the residual sticker goo off my computer. I will be reviewing a book : "I Will Not Be Broken: Five Steps to Overcoming a Life Crisis," by Jerry White, the co-founder of Survivor Corps http://iwillnotbebroken.org I've already read the intro and first two chapters (thanks to the free download) and it's going to be inspirational and help so many people. I know it is something all my readers (yes all two of them ...hi dad!) will enjoy and pass on to those around them that need to hear the message and take the steps. I know I will. Looking forward to blogging again.

Does that make me Number 3? Since I know JackArmy reads your blog :-) Glad to see you are surviving. Whoo!

Speaking of blogging and conferences, I am working on getting down there this year. Any chance you and JA will make it to Vegas this go 'round?

Since it's later than we had expected, I may be able to tag along with Jack again this year. We don't know yet if the milbloggers are going to be represented there ...if not, we have no real interest in going...kinda snobby that way I guess. Would love to see some of the people we hung out with last time. whoo hoo we had some fun!

Seems I come home from work(9hrs straight on a computer) then another 4 hours straight on my laptop doing school work. I think I may go blind or at least have soome serious carpel tunnel. Aug '09 can't get here soon enough. I am so tired of writing papers at 1am...I need sleep!!

Almost 2 months later -- so much for superstition! :D

My theory is that you secretly hate us all and don't want to talk to us. (:-(
