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!
