Yay us! And Publicly Apologizing

Ask me what I'm doing this weekend... go ahead...

ask me.

I am going to the PBR Finals!!!

I'm so stoked! I loved it so much last year that this year, for my husband's birthday, I got us tickets!

Now... he is all for going with me... on his birthday, so he says...

I know this seems like a present more for me than him, but it's in Vegas, so he wins also!

YAY us!

Now for all seriousness... not that I haven't been serious, but let's talk.

I've sucked it up at commenting on your guys' blogs lately and I want to publicly apologize.

Here's the thing.  I read your blogs on reader, in between routings when I'm at work.  But we can't access blogs.  Which is probably a good thing or I'd never get any work done.  But I do READ what you guys are saying everyday or whenever you blog... I just don't always get to comment.

If I do get to comment, it's because I have a free minute after work when I'm not taking pictures or driving kids to classes, games, and practices, or editing to make a comment.

It doesn't excuse me however.  I am going to make a better effort to comment on your blogs because I know it counts in the grand scheme of things with bloggers.

I really really really do feel bad that I haven't been around and I do want to reconcile that.

And I love even more that you guys still come over to my neck of the woods and either privately email me a comment or comment in my inbox.

Seriously, thanks.

Love ya all!

I've already made a voodoo doll of you, so too late.

You drink Pabst Blue Ribbon?

Meeko Fabulous said...

I totally know what you mean! Ever since I've started using Reader, I've been horrible at commenting too. :( No worries though. :)

Danielle said...

I haven't been very bloggy either. Don't worry on my end, and know that I am reading too!

Vodka Logic said...

Who are you???

We all have our times of "bad" blogging. No worries.

DCHY said...

I avoid Reader at all times. Too easy. LOL

Nolens Volens said...

How about blackmail...would that motivate you better? ;)

T said...

you make up for it with all your personal responses to comments :)

that said... you're always welcome to come and make all my other readers (pffft, all 12 of them) laugh with your comments!

I read on reader at work all the time. Some blogs I can get on, some I can't, and some make my computer go completely out of whack.
I've been out of the loop for a bit, but had personal stuff going on. Now I'm back.

Bull riding!?!?

[scratching head]

Que said...

It's all good. I do admit that I had to look up what PBR was. There's not much of that here in my neck of the woods. We have cow tipping but not much bull riding.

The Wixom Zoo said...

I'm a reader of blogs but not a commentor very often. My bad. I'll comment more often too. Thanks for the kick in the pants! LOL

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Kristina p.--Right back atcha! You were my first VooDoo doll ever!

SciFi Dad-- I don't even know what that is!?

Meeko Fabulous-- I'm glad I have company in that! lol

Danielle--Girl I never worry about you!

VL-lol! That was a good one! I know huh... I'm the worst worst! We all do have our blogging bad times... I just hate that I'm not reciprocating the love.

DCHY-If I avoided reader I'd never know what was going on!!! It's my saving grace!

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

NV-Blackmail is always a good motivator! What do you have on me is the question... then we can see how motivating it is! :)

T-I will, I will... I love your site anyway cause you are so freaking witty!

Day to Day--YAY!!! I'm so glad... I guess I've been the same way.

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

ANon--YES! Bull Riding! I know it seems out of sorts for me to love... but ya know... I lub it! It's awesome to me!

Que--I only started loving to watch it like 2 years ago. Came upon it one saturday with nothing to do and watched a full 3 hours of it! It's so much cooler in person though! You should check it out sometime! I'm not kidding!

Wixom Zoo--We will have to do that together then. or something... :)

wendy said...

FUN. Why exactly do you like the rodeo. Is it the bulls, or is it the wranglers. (tee,hee)

totally sounds like a win win to me, rodeo and buffets.

wendy said...

oh, and I seem to be the only one so far that talked rodeo...and not that you haven't been commenting.

so I guess I am ok with that
(or maybe I lie a little)

Candice said...

No worries, I haven't been blogging lately so it's all good. ;)

Sara @ Domestically Challenged said...

Wait! Should I comment here, or will that make you feel guilty!? I totally know what you mean- life gets uber crazy, doesn't it? Have fun this weekend!

Dawn (Bee and Rose) said...

Have a fabulous time at the PBR!!!

Don't beat yourself up over commenting...life happens!

Gucci Mama said...

Sorry, I know there was more to this, but all I can to is fantasize about men in cowboy hats and chaps. I cannot describe to you the level of love I have for bull riding. And chaps. And cowboys.

Is it hot in here?

Annie (Lady M) x said...

Crikey, there was me throwing darts at your pic because you hadn't commented..LOL! Wink!

What is PBR by the way? I am from England, and we are very uncultured!

Papa K said...

I was really wondering what was up with your absense of comments... geez... slacker.

I didn't know you had a thing for bull riding. It seems like a great way to throw your back out.

Hey... send your good vibes the Rangers way tonight. If they win the go to the World Series for the first time in their franchise history! http://handstowar.wordpress.com/2010/10/22/baseball-is-life/

The Motherboard said...

I'm coming out of hiding to say I read in reader too. I'm lazy like that.

The Crash Test Dummy said...

ha ha about what Kristina P. said.

Oh, I'm so sucky too. I totally get the in-the-car/in-between-thing.

You can totally make it up to me by voting for me. I want to be the next Good Mood blogger SOOOOOO bad but I need votes because I'm started late.

Please vote. Pretty please. You can vote every day if you want. Until Nov 10th.

Mahalo in advance.

ModernMom said...

That sounds like a riot! Take a lot of pictures:)

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Wendy-- Both!!! Duh.I know... I know... I need to comment! I wuv you though and you know it!

Candice--lol, yea me neither.

Sara--I DO feel guilty! waaaaa!

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Dawn-thanks... I try not to, but I know how important they are to people that blog.

GM-seriously, let's plan on going to an event together. A Built Ford Tough series one. No kidding. Let's do it! I know you love it like I do! yAY!

Annie- HAHAHAHAHA @ Darts! That was good. PBR is Professional Bull Riding...I wonder if you DO have it in England? I don't know!?

H.K. said...

I don't think you should ever have to apologize for not commenting often. When I feel like I have to comment & blog all the time, then it takes the joy out of blogging. I try to read as much of my blogs on my list as much as I can, but time never allows me to comment as much as I want to.

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

PapaK--I'm full of surprises for sure! lol. I sent the mojo, and your.welcome. They usually do more than just throw their back out if they get hurt... which is what makes it SO exciting!!! Sorry about the absense... I'm for sure a slacker.

Crash--you know you can count on me! Lots of love girl.

Modern Mom--I totally forgot to take pictures!!! aaaccckkk!

H.K.--There is so much truth to that. If and when I feel like I have to then it does take the joy out. I'm glad you still read though! :)

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

Motherboard!--YAY! I miss you! I'm so glad you are still reading! lubs you!

Gucci Mama said...

I'm there!

binks said...

Meh.
You're forgiven.
I can't even bring myself to post.
Vegas? Have fun and don't eat any of those beet things, they kinda taste like dirt. ;)

Here you Go SciFi Dad
