So, one week from today is my 1-year-anniversary of blogging. You may have noticed I've been MIA lately. I have had to put my writing aside for a while to get my house ready to sell, sell my house, and look for a new house (no luck there). And, let's not forget pack my house with three children 5 and under climbing in boxes, crying over toys I have thrown in a yard sale pile, and finding any chance to sneak my box marker and write on walls, furniture, and self. Anyway, it's all exciting stuff, and I am looking forward to one day being settled enough to sneak in a blog here and there. But, for now, "you get what you get and you don't throw a fit." And, in honor of my anniversary, I am going to repost my most popular blogs from the last year each day for the next week. If you joined me in the last 3 months, then many of these will be new to you, so just pretend I'm doing awesome this week! For daily doses of Crap, Like me on Facebook!
Soooo ... it's my birthday, and I have a friend who "gets it." She gave me the perfect gift today ... the Dammit Doll. I will keep it in the garage (or, on my husband's pillow when he's in the doghouse). The garage is where I go when I need to blow off some steam and find my head before serious disciplinary action is about to occur.
If you haven't seen this doll, here is what it says on the chest: "Whenever things don't go so well, and you want to hit the wall and yell, here's a little Dammit Doll, that you can't do without. Just grasp it firmly by the legs and find a place to slam it. And as you whack the stuffing out yell, 'Dammit! Dammit! Dammit!'" #dammitdolls For daily doses of Crap, Like me on Facebook!
