13 & 49

Da Goddess @ 22:42

So, the 16th marked my 13th year of blogging and it was followed by my 49th birthday. I survived both with my usual “ehness”.

Mixed in with that was a party for my Mojo who left Monday for the wilds of Fairbanks, Alaska. Yep, my little girl is off to join her husband at his current post. It’s both wonderful and sad; bittersweet. Which is also how I feel about everything else.

While blogging has mostly been a joy, there have some very sad times. The loss of friends like Rob, Mikey, and Scott has left a major void in the blogosphere. Thankfully, there are still many amazing friends out there and I’d hate to start naming them and miss anyone. Let’s just say y’all know who you are and I am so very grateful you’re a part of my life.

As for being 49, there are times I consider it a freakin’ miracle I’ve made it this far. When I was younger, I certainly did my best to push the limits and short my chances of having a long life. All that changed when Mojo came along. Kids’ll do that. I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Now, those of you who’ve stuck around this long, THANK YOU! And those who’ve decided I’m not their cup of tea, well, I’m pretty sure we’re both better off because of it.

Here’s to making it to Years 14 & 50! Hope you’ll be there when the time comes.


  1. I’ll be there!! And we’ll make it a party!!!! :D

    I absolutely love modern tech! Texting and such with my extended family all over the country keeps them close… hope that helps you and MoJo as well!

  3. Happy birthday, Marcie! Hope you’re celebrating the whole year!

    Pam, I’m with you — modern technology is fabulous (except when it’s not, but mostly it’s wonderful). Mojo has kept us all in the loop during her trip. Right now, she’s on a ferry for several days and isn’t able to text, so I just keep sending her messages that she’ll get once she’s back on land. You know, just to let her know I’m thinking of her.

    Thank you both for making blogging more fun!
