No Comments=Boring

I've noticed my comments are way down compared to six months or a year ago. In fact, I think they are down on many of the blogs I read. Are we all getting bored with Blogger? Is Facebook doing us in? Are we all just so busy? Maybe I've just gotten really boring.

Yes, boring it is, and this here is a boring post. *hangs head in shame*

Yesterday, I cleaned, cleaned and cleaned. Do you know it took over an hour just to clear the kitchen table? Insanity. Homer is working on taking out the garage door and building a wall so the stairs can go in. Remodelling with seven people living in the home is proving to be the biggest annoyance ever. And slow.

I'll take photos today. Yesterday, I was a tad grumpy as Andrew's dog started barking at 7:10am and proceeded to continue most of the day. I really dislike barking dogs and Harrah just would not shut up.

After cleaning, throwing out, packing and moving stuff all day I took Elijah to football practice. He didn't have his helmet so I had to drive back for it. Before the night was over I drove 90 miles for one football practice. That made me grumpier.

For dinner I made crab stuffed mushrooms, grilled corn on the cob, grilled steak, baked potato and a spinach salad. Entirely too much food and dinner was nibbled on throughout the evening.

After spending all day getting things moved for Dad he didn't even work on the house. He had to spend all night working on a pen for Andrew's dog. I give up. This house is never going to be done nicely and just be livable.

After Andrew left Dad worked on the little 4-wheeler for awhile. It needs some carburetor work.

Lucas, Olivia and I threw rocks at a helmet to see who could land one first. How's that for some redneck entertainment?

So all in all yesterday gets a 4 out of 10 rating. Dinner was outstanding and his dogs are now able to run around, but other than that it was blah. Looking for something a little more up there on the fun meter today!

Ninety miles just for a practice? Too much for me.

Your meal looks wonderful. Can I come to dinner sometime?

Barking dogs are way up there on my "NO!" list. It's a big pet peeve as my neighbor has 4 Aussies that bark all the time. If that's not bad enough, then I have to listen to her foul language as she screams at them to stop. Kind of funny, but mostly just really annoying.

Yep. Comments seem to be down all over the blogs. I know mine are down, but then again, I haven't been posting too often. Have to make a note to myself to get with the program again.

*Smile! I read you all the time!!

I've never gotten very many comments on any of my blogs. I think the most ever was 4 and that was when we were dressed as trailer trash for halloween. LMAO!

Gayle ~ I think people are all busy during the spring and summer months working in their gardens, taking vacations etc. Fall and winter seems to be when people blog more.

Your dinner looks delicious. I made a pound cake today, yummy. We had half a slice with tea this afternoon. Tonight I'm fixing tacos for supper, one of my all time favorite comfort foods.

We're still hoping and waiting for rain.

Have a nice evening and a great day tomorrow.

The rocks-in-the-helmet game looks like great entertainment, redneck or not!
Hope some progress is made on the remodeling soon.

I'm sorry I don't post more commments. For some reason I have to re-log in every time I post a comment and I get too lazy. Also, I seem to have trouble with word verification.

I sure hope you get an inside stairway before winter. Do I understand that you have to go outside to go upstairs? Brrrrr

When you say Dad did this or that, do you mean your husband or does your father also live with you?

Thank you for the almost daily stories of your life in Alaska and the beautiful photos.

sometimes i think it is harder to comment than it is to write a post. But I enjoy your writing and photos very much.

I think everyone is too busy in the summer. I barely have time to glance at some blogs during breakfast or lunch. Sigh.

I have not been blogging or commenting much this past few months. Tonight I am making time to visit all the blogs I have missed so much. I always enjoy reading about your life and adventures in the far north!
