Friday Confessional #4

Friday, May 13, 2011

Please join me @ Mamarazzi's Friday Confessional at Dandelion Wishes!


I confess that I have made-up a few choice names for Blogger.  Most of them I cannot post because I want to keep my blog rated G.

I confess that after some 2,700 sack lunches I have made Shanley Belle for school for the past sixteen years, I made my last one yesterday.  I confess that I cried like a baby almost all morning.


I confess that I thought of a linky party idea: In Search of Pantone's Honeysuckle.


I don't think that color is going to make it like 2010's Turquoise.


I confess that this is probably a very lame idea for a linky party, and I think it went over like a lead balloon.

I confess I made a cute button for said linky party.  Blogger stole it.  I confess that I want to go nuclear on the Blogger troll that stole my button.  I confess that it took me two hours on Wednesday to make the darn thing.  And it is somewhere in the Great Blogger Abyss.


I confess that it is the end of the school year, and I really should be taking care of other tasks right now.

I confess that Blogger also stole my Hydrangea post and all the helpful comments on the care and feeding of hydrangeas.  I confess that I really need the helpful comments!


I confess that I am sideways with Blogger.  I want my stuff returned.  Immediately.  Or else. I'll put some New Orleans gris gris on you (that's voodoo black magic, folks)....


Until next time...

  1. LOL! I was in a bad way when blogger came back and my stuff was gone! It is slowly coming back although not quite the same. :/

    Shanely is out of school already? Wow! I know it must be hard with her being the oldest. We were thrilled when ours started heading off though! lol

    Have a great weekend. Chris

  2. I want yesterday's post back too--with comments thank you very much.

  3. Blogger stole my post from Wednesday along with all my lovely comments! I'm not a happy blogger... Have a great weekend!

  4. I confess that I need you to put aother pin in that blogger doll! This is my THIRD attempt to leave you a comment!
    How did someone steal your button? Are you having a party still? I need the 411!!!
    Good luck!

  5. I'll be darned, if blogger just didn't eat my comment!!! eeeeeccckkk!!!! love ya, Debra

  6. This was a cute post. I am not on blogger but have noticed so many people had problems with them today. I hope you get all your comments back.

  7. Oh that last image was so funny!!

    School here doesn't get out till the end of June. I get upset too when Sam has moved on to another grade!
    I wish i could give you advice on Hydrangea but the only thing i ever did with mine (and they all grew enormous) was put down the best triple mix soil from a great nursery. Does that help??

    I'm glad bloggger is back but now i need to do a post!!

  8. I hope you get your posts and comments back. That would be so frustrating. I had posted the day before, but couldn't leave any comments for all the blogs I visited the past 24 hours. I suppose the comments I did leave before Blogger went "read only" mode are floating out there somewhere with your lost posts and comments. ~ Sarah

  9. You are awesome. I love the hate blogger button. I had to step away from the blogger or I was going to hurt something myself.

  10. Too funny! I have my own beef with Blogger. I've had so many issues with them since I started my blog a year ago, I'm actually contemplating changing over to someone else.

    Ricki, I remember all too well my struggles with the milestones in my children's lives. They were all great accomplishments, but, in my eyes, they just moved my children further into their own lives. It's the bitter-sweet part of being a mom.

  11. LOL! I was so busy this past week, I didn't put a post up. I was, however, having issues commenting. I was getting so frustrated! Your last photo cracks me up!!! Glad to see I wasn't the only one frustrated.


Comments are friendly!
