Numbered Names

What number of names can I use in 1 post?   I’m thinking eleventy dozen…

set of numbers very young

“Very Young”- that’s me! Hey, they didn’t specify that it had to be your Chronological age!!

Jenny, I think it’s unremarkable how your kids file away numbers.   If we all band together, and use the number eleventy in the episodes of our daily life, it becomes a legit word, right, Edwina??

My BBFF Janice mostly writes about blogging. I’ve learned a number of helpful things from her.

Sarah Eliza devastates boredom on a daily basis.   How many of y’all can say that???

Claremary putters around the barn.  Hey, can you send ZuZu to find me a number of mice?  Thanks!

Himali spends her time decoding happiness.   I’m glad she does it, not me!   Happiness eludes me in a number of ways!

Susie is shy 45% of her days.   But, I managed to draw her out of her shell a number of times!

Roopam is whimsical 90 % of the time.  Lovely!

Sherri has a great view from  her summerhouse.   You can see any number of excellent vistas!

Carol was retired, but no one told her!   What a number they did on her!!

Carmen is always fashionable, even over 50 years!   I can always find any number of cute outfit suggestions on her blog.

Ralph put indigo in his water.   Now he’s in trouble!  Apparently a number of blue fish have way too much indigo in them!

Teagan has written a number of books.   

Whew!  I’m tired from the sheer number of names I crammed in 1 post!!   If you didn’t appear, never fear!   I have a number of names left to drop!  And many more posts to write!

(PS: It is with a great sense of accomplishment that I announce, I used the word “number” 15 times in this post!!   Oops!  I forgot to count the one in quotes there!  -16!   And I dropped 13 names!!   YAY ME!!!!)

{If you only counted 13 times, hint- look at the pix.}

Okay, #1-done    #2- gonna do that little thing right now.

I have been a life long slob.  And I was SICK of it!  I’d been reading cleaning, organizing, and purging blogs.  Kristen, from RoadtoDomestication was the first one I read, since she’s a personal friend.

It is great!  But, she’s naturally organized, and I’m not, so nothing changed.  Then I found Nony, from ASlobComesClean.

And she’s a self admitted slob!  I had found my people!!

So, I determined to take control of my life, one dust bunny at a time.  I started my blog Aug. was a year ago.  Everyday I’d do something, no matter how small, and document it in writing, and pix.  My first post, First Day, was the beginning.

me big girl

Me at 344 lbs. Yep, I was a BIG girl!

Now I’m an experienced blogger with a lot less junk in my life, who has improved health, as well.  My life is so satisfying now.

#3, Advice.

Hmmm, I don’t really feel qualified to give advice, just tell you what worked for me.  Figure out what you want to say.  It has to be important to you, or you’ll lose interest.  Then, start saying it!!  And proofread, proofread, proofread!  I re-read my posts multiple times before I publish, and still mistakes make it thru.  That’s so embarrassing for a Grammar Nazi!!!

#4, 15 other blogs.  That I can do easily!  I know so many wonderful bloggers, just choosing 15 will be the hard part!
