Happy 1st Birthday

Happy Birthday to Don't Touch the Cactus. It's ONE today! Yep on January 27, 2008 I did the first post ever. If you're feeling nostalgic you can read it here. There will be no cake, even though cake sure does sound good. Maybe a cupcake?

The entire reason I started the blog was to chronicle our move across the country and as a means of keeping everyone informed of what was going on with us in the desert. Never in a million years did I imagine I would have THAT much stuff to write about. But kids, scorpions and moving will provide you with all that and more. I have enjoyed writing it even though now there are no more updates on the move since it's also almost been a year. Now you get some ramblings about me and my battle with losing those damn 30 pounds, the funny things the kids do, the struggles of daily life with a job, kids, and all that goes with it. From what I've been told you laugh alot when reading my posts. That makes me happy even if you are laughing at some kind of personal hell I might be going through. I always am comfortable when I am making people laugh (again even at my expense). It puts me at ease.

I've "met" a lot of people through the year from reading other blogs and posting comments on theirs. I am happy to have so many cyber friends. If you haven't checked out anyone on the blog roll you're really missing out.

And so begins another blog year. Hopefully blogs don't suffer from the terrible twos like kids do. But I guess that will keep you laughing if they do.

OMG I can't believe a whole year has gone by we feel like such a big part of that move from watching them pack up your Brentwood home to unpacking your Az home wow time flys when your're having fun eh. Thought for sure we would be living there by now, still hoping though. CONGRATULATIONS on almost one year living there.
Love Mom
