Running Away

I'm going to be gone until Sunday night, and there are no interwebs where I'm going.

I'm going to be spending Friday the 13th at a camp. On a Lake. In the woods. I'll be sure to say hello to Jason for you when he comes to kill us all.

Anyway, since I won't be posting for a few days, I thought it would be a great opportunity to send you off to visit a few of my most favorite blogs ever.

Now, please don't be offended if your blog is not listed. All the blogs over there ---> are pretty great. But let's face it, some people are just better writers than others and these four are really great writers.

First is Miss Nemesis at Voice of Reason. I just discovered her a couple of weeks ago, and I want to hunt her down and force her to be my best friend.

Next is Jane at What About Mom? I want to go live next door to her and let our kids play together while we chat. And force her to be my best friend.

Then we have Dusty at Pork Tornado. Be warned--he uses adult language, but don't let that scare you away. He's fiercely logical, more than a bit cynical and has a razor sharp wit. And he's a pretty great artist to boot.

Finally there's Ree at Confessions of a Pioneer Woman. There's a little something for everyone here--glimpses of a city girl's life on a huge ranch in the country, cooking, home and garden, photography and homeschooling. And calf nuts.

Oh, and those of you whom I attend church with? Don't judge me by my children's appearances this week. I will not be home for dressing and hair brushing.


  1. Um, we should maybe talk about your desire to hunt people down and make them your BFF. It sounds like a serious problem.

    Does this mean I'll see BSG before you? Can I spoil you? Oh, I'm so going to. The minute I can....mwahahaha!

  2. being judged for the kids looking neglected may not be such a bad thing. a couple of weeks ago when josh was working, we woke up at 8:30. church is at 9 and a half hour away. we didnt shower or eat and i hadn't done laundry in a month. so i told the kids to wear whatever and get in the car. samuel wore josh's shirt, way too big, all wrinkled, off the couch...

    after church two ladies came up to me and offered me children's clothing...

  3. Good blogs! They all made my "Blogs I Like" list.

  4. speaking of calf nuts...that reminds me of the time I saw an old man dock and castrate his sheep on a ranch in Wyoming....He threw the lambs on the bed of a truck, spread their legs, bit the nuts off, spit them out for his Border Collie to scarf down, and looked up and smiled at me with lamb nut juice trickling from the corners of his mouth......True Story
    (and you wonder why my kids are a bit "odd"?)


Be nice or I'll punch you in the taco.
