****Happy Bloggaversary #9****

It's that time again!

Bloggaversary #9!!!!

Happy Bloggaversary to me... Your Friendly Neighborhood Oldgirl LadyLee!

And you know I have to yell it......


Man. 9 years. I started this blog when I was 35 years old. 9 years ago. It doesn't feel that long ago.

But after 1820 posts and 11,204 comments, here I stand.

Most have moved on to Twitter and Facebook, and that is understandable. But I do this because it is my therapy. I work my messes in this house. I laugh in this house. And I play in this house.

This is my House, where I am free to scrawl high upon the walls whenever I please.

And I tend to write like no one else is reading. But I am so thankful for you, dear reader, for taking this journey with me. It feels good to get a comment of how much you have liked something I wrote. And some of you have my phone number, and we have these wonderful text conversations that have solved many an issue in my life. I've also made some lifelong friends through blogging. I must say that I can look back through the last 9 years and even in this, this typing out of my thoughts and everyday life, there has been purpose.

And for that I am grateful.

So yes... Happy Bloggaversery to ME!

So, we did the Sweepstakes a little different this year. It has been going on since mid July, I believe. It has been a marathon of sorts. You have had around 35 posts to comment on. And today is the last post. So get your comments in. The rules remain the same: most comments get an automatic gift card, and there will be TWO names drawn from the pool of commentors. So you have the potential to win three $99 gift cards to either Wal-mart or Target.

As always, the strategies have been interesting and smart.

Many of you have taken the Sweepstakes motto to heart...

"Git yo money... honey!"

You know how I think. You can buy a whole lot of panties at the Wal-mart with a $99 gift card.  You can do the same at the Target store. Not as many, but hey, free panties are awesome no matter where you get them!

Yes indeed.

The drawing is on Friday. Commenting closes at midnight on Thursday. So get in where you fit in.

So again, whether it's been a day, or the whole 9 years...

Thank you for hanging out with me...

Your Friendly Neighborhood Oldgirl LadyLee.

(((And welcome to YEAR 10)))
