Mishmash, Hodgepodge & Tarnation

You wonderful people who have kept coming to read even when I've been less than faithful in my writing? I just want you to know I love you. This post is a giant "THANK YOU," catch-up, and newsy bit.


First, thank you for reading! Yes, you! Because your comments and Twitter love keep inspiring me -- love it! Second, I have to thank a few people for the blog awards they generously threw my way.

This one came from Nathanael over at This Is How It Feels. Although we've argued over the best future locale for Sara, we're generally blog buddies and this is a huge compliment. Thanks!

I don't think Monique (aka the SurferWife) meant to give me both of these, but I'm the kind of girl who takes advantage of ambiguity and will claim ownership of BOTH. That's actually why she likes me in the first place, I think.

Who gets the next round of these babies? I'm sending all three the way of Sara Spelled Without an H, the Aspiring Fashionista, and Sizzle Says.

I just wrote a review of soon-to-be published Will Jesus Buy Me a Double-Wide? ('Cause I Need More Room for my Plasma TV) by Karen Spears Zacharias. You can see it over at my other online home, Christina is Online.

If you've been following my saga, you know I recently moved to Washington State. Yay! And while I love the carefree lifestyle of unemployment (ha), I'm also happy to say I just accepted a new job! I start on Wednesday, and am looking forward to a new challenge.

What does that mean for this blog?

It will still be here. I will still be here. And I anticipate being able to post more regularly, because I'll have a stable schedule. So don't leave me (please!), because I want to grow old with you. Or... at least keep up the conversation. Okay?

Happy Monday!

Congratulations on your awards and the new job! I'm sure that's a huge relief-- enjoy!

Congratulations on your new job! I'm terribly excited for you. What will you be doing?

Thanks so much for the award. You are, without a doubt, one of my favorites.

And I'm totally torn between you and Nat (he probably hates that I call him that, but it's with affection). It will basically be either NY or Pacific NW. At least I'm narrowing it down!

I did indeed mean to give you both because they were given to me in the same ambiguous fashion. But I do absolutely appreciate the fact that you were trying to pull a fast one by just claiming both.

Admirable in my book, fo shiz.

Congrats on the job! More details please!

Congratulations on your new job. If anything, it should give you more blog fodder…

Good luck with your new local as well.

Aww, thanks! And congrats on the new job! I look forward to more posts from you. And, fret not, I'm not going anywhere. You're one of my favorites.

Congrats on the new job and the cute awards! I'm here via Sara's blog, and you can bet I'll be back!

Sounds like the new job is a good fit! And considering I just wrote my first post of 2010 this morning, I can understand the slow blogging :)
