I’m proud to be a blogger…where at least I know I’m…a…blogger?

I’ve been wanting to write an official review for No One Cares What You Had for Lunch: 100 Ideas for Your Blog for quite some time now. But everytime I sit down to do it, it ends up something like “Oh! This book is sooooo rockin’! I love it! WOO HOO!” and then I remember Hmm. I suck at writing. Then – today I read Evany’s write-up about the book. See, Evany had developed a “grumpiness” about blogging in the 11 years (WOW) she’s been doing it: Have you ever been in a room where everyone unapologetically introduces themselves as...

I was leaving NikkiZ’s day care and I was going to go to my car via the flower beds at the front of the building. There are little paths in the beds by either door, and I use them often. When I went to the path, I noticed there was a little sign there. I jumped over the sign and kept going.

These bushes are sharp and these paths were not intentional.”...

Life without Target? Isn’t that cruel and unusual punishment? Here are my answers – 1. Chick-Fil-A – I KNOW! But y’all don’t understand. My willpower is non-existant when it comes to Krispy Kremes. This is why I’m glad the only one in Huntsville is on the other side of town from where I live. My health would be a lot better if there wasn’t one at all...

So, Chris mentioned that she lives in Alaska where there is no Krispy Kreme or Chick-Fil-A – and it got me wondering, which would I prefer? So – let’s play a little game, shall we? You live somewhere remote – and you are deciding what businesses to populate your town with – which would you choose? 1. (a) Krispy Kreme (b) Chick-Fil-A 2. (a) Target (b) Wal-Mart 3. (a) McDonald’s (b) Burger King 4. (a) The Gap (b) Old Navy 5. (a) Barnes and Noble (b) Borders 6. (a) The Body Shop (b) Bath and Bodyworks 7. (a) Subway (b)...

Other than doughnut wedding cakes and buying school supplies, there are really no areas in my life where I excel as compared with any other average Jane. I don’t know why this bothers me so much, but it does. I really, really, really, really want to find something I am really good at. Something that other people who know me can use to describe me. “Oh, Kim. You know her – she’s the one who is really good at concrete stamping.” I often look back on my childhood and teen years and recall the many times that I was simply...
