In my own defense....

Where have I been? 

Honestly I don't know.

Oh wait... at work. Sitting in front of a computer screen, looking at Christmas lights in the Que.

It seems like a bit and a half since I've blogged, or really tried. I want to apologize, in my own defense.

What have you done?


  1. Hey there :)

    I'm sorry you feel so negative about the blogosphere. I guess it has come to alot of contests and such.

    I do host a lot of giveaways and contests but I try to incorporate myself into them as much as possible.

    I'm sorry you didn't win the contest you entered before. Hopefully if you enter my contests you'll find some luck ! :)

  2. I love this idea, but reading it make me realize.. there is a lot of things Ive yet to do.

    Found your blog through Days on the Creek. Glad I did !!

  3. I really like this idea too, but I've been sheltered and haven't done a whole lot of things (less than you!) I think it's time I do something with my life! :o)

    I hope you get relief from work soon!!

  4. I may have to steal this idea from you!!! :)
