…goin’ on a road trip!

Part of the deal with myself when I dove in and starting writing a blog before I knew what I was doing was: it did not have to be perfect.  Hard as it was, I forced myself to embrace and live by my own philosophy of “plenty perfect” and I have been glad that I did.  Writing this blog has been fun!

So this week – there will be no posts.  How’s that for not being perfect?  Slacking off and taking the chance that my “followers” will find some other blog to read.  I am kind of reckless like that sometimes.  All 3 people who read this blog will just have to wait with bated breath for a new post when I return from a road trip with my kids.  I know there will be a lot of “plenty perfect” moments along the way where I wonder why I ever thought a road trip would be a fun vacation with three hormonal kids.  Hopefully, I will also have some good pictures and fun stories to tell!

If you are one of my friends who read this blog from time to time – or a stranger who accidentally found my blog – could you please leave a comment?  I would love to know who is actually looking at it!

FYI – I just figured out that there is a little blurb symbol next to the title of each post with a number in it (most are “0”!) upon which a devoted follower or a mean heckler can click and create a place to make a comment.  The mean heckler will probably not get their comment approved, unless I think the mean comment is really clever or funny.  Nice comments will always get approved!  It’s plenty perfect that way.

Thanks!!!  Have a fun week!

    Since those other gals above are the 3 readers, I think I get to be reader #4? Anyway, love your blog and enjoy hearing about your musings and adventures. My favorite story here is about Mr. Fluffypants and it’s even BETTER when told in person!
