We’re open again: New! Improved! More tired than ever!

20/Sep/2008

The best part about blogging is how it brings together people you might not get to meet otherwise. It’s amazing how like-minded so many of us are, and yet, here we are all so very unique and offering new perspectives daily.

A while back I met a gal from Teh Internetz. She was someone that always made me laugh and we had a billion things in common. Like: WINE! TODDLERS! VERY ACTIVE AND INTELLEGENT OLDER DAUGHTERS! A LOVE FOR CAPS! AND EXCLAMATION POINTS!

I also found out she was a web programmer (for that pesky .NET language, though) and went to Western Washington as an undergraduate. She graduated in 1997. She was probably in one of my classes. She lived in Bellingham not far from where I did for five years.

So I went to meet her in person convinced I happen to be HER and I was writing myself, somehow, like Russle Crowe in A Beautiful Mind but without all the nazis.

She was real.

She bought me coffee.

My kids adored her.

So we kept in touch and read each other daily. We called. We hung out. We became great friends and one day we confessed to each other how crazy life is and how blogging just isn’t in the “Great List O’ Shit To Do Each Day” anymore. It fell right after bathing children and sweeping the floor, which were also rarely happening. Then a great idea was born and I asked her to move in with me.

She accepted.

I told my super close friends Michelle and Laura that I was having a roommate on my blog and asked if they’d join sometimes. They agreed. Then I told Oma to stop in and visit and help me tell stories of my childhood. She promised not to talk about how I was made or post about condoms. Too much.

So here we are: A community of real friends. The people I adore seeing in real life are now the ones you have the joy of reading here along with your regularly scheduled over use of caps and too much information about my sex life.

LUCKY YOU!

But really? We just want you to feel welcome in our pad. Come kick up your feet, grab a

glass

bottle of wine and let it all hang out. I know you’re going to enjoy these ladies as much as I do. Consider yourself blessed. I know I do.

Please go read her first ever POSTED HERE LIVE entry she wrote yesterday. Her archives are here, too. Enjoy the goodness of Single Super Mama!

**For the record, it’s not EXACTLY finished. There is the link blog coming back, my stumbled upon faves, the awesomeness of teh community and the “people we read”. And some other things. I forget. But right now I have to go take a few drabs of whiskey to ease my throat and stop my brain from over-using if-statements and global variables.

Was that out loud? Am I still talking? Right. Must be the fever talking. Off to enjoy a “medicinal” shot. Of anything.
