They still call me Heiferyung…

Tomorrow is my blog’s one year anniversary!

I can’t believe I’ve stuck with something. Finally. I have a small tendency to get excited at the prospect of getting started on something (dance lessons, Spanish class, dog trainer school) and never quite follow through. It’s not that I don’t have the desire, I just the think the thinking up the idea is more fun than actually doing it.

But my little blog has lasted for a whole year. I’m proud of me. In fact, I’m so proud, I think I’ll  go ahead for another year. What do you think?

For those of you who may have joined us mid-season, you can read my very first post right here.

This next year should prove an interesting one, as we just found out CGMan is coming home to the States. Yay! We’ll get to live in the same house again. We have decided that living apart is for the birds and as we look for new opportunities, we’ll be doing it together. Wherever that may be. (I’m just hoping it’s not in a place where it, you know, snows. Gah!)

I’m not really into stats, but I happened to take a look the other day, being as how it was my birthday and all, and noticed I have quite a few regular readers and a lot more page loads than I would have thought.

So for my blog birthday, how about all you quiet readers de-lurk for one day and say Hi? I’d love to hear from you. I love hearing from my faithful readers, too!

Happy Birthday to my blog! Looking forward to another chaotic interesting year.

P.S.  For Meg: today is also the day I quit smoking, three years ago. Of all the celebrations I have in a year, this one is my favorite.


  1. Congratulations on the blogaversary and the no-smokingaversary! Wow, those names just don't work at all, do they?

    And hoooooray for your hubby coming home! I can't even imagine how hard it's been to be so far apart. I'm guessing you'll go through the honeymoon phase again when he gets back (both the good parts and the bad parts of living with someone again). :)

  2. Delurking to say Hi! Came over from Bye Bye Pie. Congrats on the blogoversary!!

  3. Dear Dawn,

    Wow - congrats on your blog bday - quitting smoking and CCG Man coming home! Lots to celebrate tonight! I am an ex-smoker too - it's been a long time - but it is an accomplishment to be proud of - it's one of the hardest things I have ever done!

    Thanks for stopping by my cousins blog and wishing her well - she's a strong lady with a will to live life!



  4. sorry - didn't mean to be a quiet reader - just have trouble putting comments on here from work - but I look forward to reading this every day - missed it much when we were snowed in!

  5. Wow Dawn that sounds like you've got a great upcoming year. Yay for CGMan coming home. And triple congrats to your three year non-smoking anniversary! That is awesome! I didn't realize we were so close on the quitting, I'm just a few months behind you. Go us!

  6. Happy one year anniversary! I had never read your first post before. :)

  7. I had never read your first post before either! I didn't know we were both married to Steves. I've just always called yours CGMan, and mine Dumbass, but hey, potay-to, potah-to, right?

    Congratulations on your blogiversary! And on your quitting smoking aniversary, which is very impressive to me. I wish Dumbass..I mean, my husband would quit smoking. Sigh. He stinks.

    And last of all, congrats that CGMan is coming home! That is amazing news and I'm so happy for you. I hope you end up someplace warm. :)

  8. Congratulations on your blogaversary, and the non-smoking thing, too! I have to admit, it's my favorite blog.

    And Yea for hubby coming home! Hope he doesn't get in your way with all of your activities.

  9. Happy anniversary my blog friend! I like having coffee with you every day (and drinks on Friday!) even if we are about 1200 miles apart!

    Squeal! CG Man is coming back!

  10. Happy Blog Birthday!!

    I hope that I can stick with mine for the first year, I imagine that is probably the hardest one. Anyway, congratulations and keep it up.

  11. Transitioning a man back into your everyday real life should make for some very fascinating blog fodder.

    I'll tell you this, having my road warrior home for weeks at a time has led to fantasies of lighting him on fire! Of course, I won't because I love him and that would be illegal.

  12. Congratulations, Dawn! On everything, your blog, your husband coming home, and especially the smoke-free life. Especially that.

    Keep on writing and I'll be here reading. You go, Girl.

  13. Happy Anniversary! I just found your blog and love it!

  14. Hi Dawn! I have been lurking here for quite awhile, found you through Twisted Susan. I am a little late but Happy Anniversary! I spent lots of time here during Christmas listening to George sing Christmas Cookies. Glad your hubby is going to come home :)

  15. I'm so proud of you too!!
    Glad you are sticking around another year, yay!!
    Congrats that CGMan is coming home :)
    And I'm VERY proud that you have now celebrated your 3rd year of non~smoking!!Whoo HOo!


I would love to hear what you have to say!
