#103


"Oh man!"

In my haste to keep up with the daily posting for NaBloPoMo, I totally missed the big milestone: Post #100! I was going to celebrate. Or at least make a post to commemorate the occasion. Oh, well...at least the post I did make on that day was a pretty good one. (That last picture makes me smile every time.)
So, yeah Lockwoods! Way to stick with something for longer than three months! At first, I thought 100 posts over a year and half may not seem like much. But then to put it into perspective, it takes the typical TV show four or five years to reach that milestone. Not too shabby.
When I started this blog, I really didn't know what would become of it and it's still an ongoing journey. I wanted to use it to help both of our families stay a little more involved with our daily lives. Since I'm horrible at keeping a scrapbook, one day I'll print all of this out and put it away for Abigael.
For more selfish reasons, I also wanted to join the "blog club." Maybe even become some kind of a writer. I think the exercise of writing everyday this month is really helping in this arena. As each day comes to a close, I start to panic a little for an idea to write about and somehow I've been able to come up with something every time. I'm starting to really enjoy the challenge. Hopefully, I can maintain that excitement on December 1st.
But, for right now I'm proud with what I've done. Here's to 103 more!

CONGRATULATIONS!!!!
I look forward to and enjoy every posting. Keep up the good work.
Love you, Mom P

PS. The incentive is that you won't have to listen to us complain/gripe/bitch if you don't keep us up to date.

Yeah! What she said! But really, I do look forward to checking the blog every day and getting my daily smile from it. Besides this is just your sneaky way of getting a comment back from us as well (which I am happy to do).
Want an idea? Have a guest writer on here with you once a week or so (i.e. Brandon/Abigail/Matt/Zack)! And the list goes on..... Should help when you hit writers block.
So, keep it up baby! All of your devoted readers look forward to your daily comments.
All sorts of love coming with this... can't wait for Christmas. I am getting the feelings like I had as a kid who can't wait!
Love to all Dad.

Congrats on hitting the century mark. I'll notify Willard Scott.

How's the quest to rename the blog coming? I have a suggestion - "Shooting at a goal nine feet high" or "Nonregulation goals."

And yes, it's odd what my pink matter records.

Happy Turkey Day!
