I just hit a new milestone, 500 posts!!  

slob, humor, 500 posts

500 posts!! Go, me!

 

Is that like 500 episodes on TV??     I don’t know, but I know I’m really proud of myself!      I’ve stuck with blogging for over 2 years now!!     So much has happened in the last 2 years, it’s crazy.

DD1 got married, and she and PP moved out.      Well, DUH!  

slob, humor, duh

 

 

 

 

 

I know, I know, I should have expected she’d want to live with her husband!

I moved: Twice!

my first place all on my own

My Very First Place, All on my Own!

Ranch Man (now known as EX) and I got divorced.     

Mitchell marriage ended Feb 24 2016

My 55th birthday

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PPJr joined the family!

I finished DD2’s  (the DR!!) kwilt!    Finally!!!    After only 9 years in the making!

slob, humor, quilt finished!

It was already folded in half, cuz I wanted ya to see my face!

I’ve shared my life’s story.

Strawberry City to Strawberry Scribblings

slob, humor, strawberries

 

I’ve de-cluttered, re-cluttered, and de-cluttered some more.     Even made a Declutterathon out of it!

Shared the ups and downs of being an Omie.

And bragged on yourself endlessly!!

 

slob, humor, funniest award

That’s me!! Well, my category, anyway!!

slob, humor, awards

How pretty is this?? Thank you Camellia!

{Trust me, there’s lots more!     But her head’s too big to cram any more in here!}

Lost my health, recovered it, lost weight, regained some…

Quoted the Bible a LOT!!     I want anyone who reads this blog to know I’m a proud Christian, follower of Christ.     And that He died on the cross, and rose again, to take away their sins.   And God loves you!!      John 3:16.

And made a wonderful community of friends!

So many it’s hard to just name a few, but here goes anyway!      My BBFF Janice, Stella, Angela, Anne M., Gail, Ethel, Sherri, Lady Sunshine, Neerja, Jenny, Susie, Queen Anne, Brenda, Willow, Kristen T.C. (well, I knew her IRL first!), Himali, Josh, Gary, Carrie, Jen, Sakshi, Roopam, Judy, Carmen, Ralph, Linda, Marsha, Gilly, Nancy, Sarah Eliza, Lorelei, Grammy, Sandra, Teagan, Annabelle, Sue, Melanie, Feisty, Grace, Terry, Donna, Kirt, H.O., Joel, Dolly, Katie, and special shout out to my beloved Nony- we aren’t close personal friends, but she inspired my blog journey, and has answered several of my comments!! …..  I love y’all ALL!! Even if you don’t see your name, because I had a brain blip, I love ya!   And please forgive me!

slob, humor, heart

LOVE!

 

So many memories, I love my life!!

  2. Congratulations Melinda on sticking with with 2 years blogging and writing 500 posts…wow, that’s a wonderful accomplishment, I’m so proud of you!!! I’m still at 300 something in almost 4 years lol! You’ve certainly had an eventful 2 years, and knowing it took you 9 years to complete your beautiful quilt makes me feel better about still working on my memoir, 3 and a half years later! And I’ve got a cross stitch project I started so many years ago, I’ve lost track 😀 I’m so glad I met you here and thank you so much for sticking with me too, it means so very much to me. God bless you dear friend, you’re a star!! 🙂 ❤ xoxo

    • Oh my gosh, Melinda!!! First off, I’ve been away from my blog for the last couple weeks and came back to see 3 WONDERFUL comments from you, lovely lady!!! You always make me feel so special.

      Prime example…Nominating me for a quote challenge!!! I seriously got teary eyed–I know, that’s probably pathetic, but oh well! This is my first nomination for anything blog-related.

      And I don’t even care if the nomination was something associated with poop (since I tend to work poo into quite a few of my posts), the fact you thought of ME puts me in such a good mood. I can’t wait to get started on my challenge!!! Thank you VERY much.

      Now secondly, this post gave me some mega goose bumps. You have managed to cram a lot of life into these last two years of living!!! I am so IMPRESSED with 500 posts in a little over 2 years!

      Equally as impressive, but not surprising in the least, is the fact that you were named 2016’s Funniest Blogger!!! What an honor! You totally deserve it. You are one flipping hilarious chica!

      Also, your kwilt… I. Love. It. It’s truly a work of art. That thing is gorgeous! And if THAT was folded in half, no wonder it took 9 years to make! Man oh man, what talent you have!!!

      I will mention, however, my mom might be trying to surpass your 9 years with her much less difficult project consisting of a crochet throw. She’s been in the process of making one for my husband and me ever since we got engaged…5 1/2 years ago. Baaah! She’s gettin’ there, slowly but surely!

      All your accomplishments are REALLY, really very inspiring. Thank you for motivating me to get up and take bigger bites out of life!!! Or, as my niece and nephew say, “Aunt Katie-sized bites” out of life!

      Here’s to your next 500 posts, Ms. Melinda!!! Congratulations, you perfect pretty princess, you! Xoxo
