Say WHAT???

I've been mulling over this post for awhile... why you ask?  (really, ask....)

Well, since you asked it's because this is post number 100 - the kindergarten classes always celebrate 100 day and from what I've seen in my short stint (8 months) as a blogger there are some pretty fancy 100th posts out there...  I did some "research" to see how big a deal I should make of this... I mean - do I get some sort of trophy for my mantel  for setting a landspeed record of the most inane chatter in an 8 month period?  

Yeah - that'll do nicely!

Anywho - in all this "research" (which is my word for all the time I spent blogging that one day) I have found that there are some mighty special posts out there for #100...  I saw lists of 100 random facts (if you'll recall I had a hard time coming up with 7) I've seen retrospective posts going all the way back to their bloggy beginnings (ummm... not long enough ago, I still remember it just fine) I've seen giveaways (I just read a book I didn't like... and I've got a chest cold I'm tired of...)  I've... I've tapped my knowledge - I guess my research was more Exhausting and not so much Exhaustive!

Sooo - I'm breaking with Tradition - I've decided that since the number 100 is represented in Roman Numerals by a big fat letter C that we'll allow that to speak for me for now:

Caught Crummy Chest Cold - really - haven't had a voice until this afternoon when I had to yell at my son, it's been a very quiet household!

Compelled Chores and Cleanliness - had visitors (which you'll read more about later) and just couldn't stand the thought of them thinking we ALWAYS live in squalor!  Of course, Meg is a blog reader and now she knows that we cleaned just for her arrival...  should have REALLY scrubbed I guess!

Cheap - the country's cash crisis is really creeping me out - I can't cough up $ for anything full priced... this whole fiasco has created a Coupon Clipper out of me!

Camera - well, duh... I'm connected to mine at the hip!

Cats - Ahh Chooo...

Candles - I love the way they smell... I don't even light them, 'cause the smoke bugs me - but the smell is nice just sitting in the room!

Church Callings - currently I love mine, but check back in a few weeks - I have mood swings when it comes to children :)  I do love my Church in general though!

Cold - not the Congestion, the Climate!  I hate it... I can't stand it... keep it away.  My whole family is in Colorado and I can't even visit in the winter... 

Course of Action - (hey, there are no other C words in the thesaurus for "plan") - my point being that I never have one... I make To-Do lists some days, and sometimes I look at them... but I think most of my life is shooting from the hip... I know this stuff is!

Coughing -  yeah, I know I already used that one, but the Context was different - this time I'm busy actually coughing and my chest is killing me... I think that's enough C's anyway don't you?

C is For Cookie - and that's good enough for me!

I hope you feel better soon! Don't send it through the bloggy grapevine to me, please. :)

Great 100th post! Congrats. The first 100 is always the hardest.

I thought that was a really cool post, I don't think I could come up with so many words that start with C. I hope you feel better. I was in ST. George with my friend today and I stopped by just to surprise you, but you weren't home, so maybe next time I am in ST. George I can see you, that will be in 2 weeks on Nov. 8. Just let me know if you will be home.

Great post - we love cookie monster around here - as a matter of fact - I think I might have his number one fan living in my house!

Chelsi said...

I'm sorry you're so sick, but I love the post! You're so Clever and such a good blogger... I never even paid attention to what post # I was on. I'm pretty sure that I've passed 100 posts. Maybe I'll have to look for #200 on mine.

T said...

I'm bummed that I missed Malinda's visit - we were probably at the reservoir (more info to come) and I'm not sure about Iheartbowheads having the #1 fan in her house... my 13 year old has Cookie drawn on his shoes... (okay - so that'll be another post as well)

LC said...

Should I be counting my posts? I don't know where I am?
The C theme was a good one, esp. for family reasons.

Congrats on your 100th post!! Now I feel kind of cheated because I never celebrated mine, lol. I didn't know it's what people did. Oh wells, maybe 500th?

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog :)

Oopsie! I just realized you didn't!! You were before me on roll call and so I decided to drop in. Argh, my brain's all scattered and it's only 11 am...it's gonna be a long day!
