Is there such a thing as Bloggers Anonymous? I just got done have a conversation with my beauti'mus sister Beth and we were just telling eachother how addicted we were to blogging ALREADY!(since we just started not so long ago). I'm not into MySpace or Facebook yet but I'm sure it's the same type of addiction.
Why is it addicting you ask?
-You get to share all your fun thoughts and adventures with your family/friends
-Once you start blogging, you find out other people are blogging and you can't wait to read their latest entry
-You get in touch with people you may not have previously been in contact with on a regular basis
-You don't want to risk getting behind on the blogs you follow because then it takes awhile to get caught up
-You check back often so you can see the comments people leave on your blog
-Most importantly, it doesn't feel like your friends and family are half-way across the United States :)
I think that about sums it up.
I don't really have anything exciting to report from the Hansmeyer/Carpenter household. Mike only has to work on Sunday of next week...some such nonsense :) of President Bush declaring the 26th as a holiday as well and his holidays are back-dated to the days he works(Sun, Mon, Tues) and since he is still in Field Training, they don't want to pay him extra holiday pay...so he only works on Sunday. PUNK!! (don't worry, I still love you Mike!) Me on the other hand, I get to work every day next week except Thursday.
For Christmas Day, we are hanging with Nicole and Tim at their new apartment and sharing dinner duties. If it's anything like Thanksgiving Day with them, it'll be a good time.
Alrighty, my lunch break is coming to an end so I need to wrap things up.
P.S. If you're not already a blogger, I highly recommend it!
