R.I.P. BOX!

As expected, I ripped into THE BOX! (cue the trumpet) I would put other pictures of her it on here, but they are WAY to graphic and I don't anyone to have nightmares!

I am sooo excited! My mother in law got me a Miche!!!!

At Christmas this past year I was admiring her purse, I asked "Is that a miche" and it was and then a few months later, I have one and 3 shells!
I just think they are so neat- (I couldn't find  a setting on my camera that didn't make the real colors of the shells all "wonky".)
 I am the WORST about buying a purse, switching to it, and then using that purse FOREVER because I don't want to take everything out, and put it all back into another one!
Now I can change it - presto!!!

Also in the box, was a book about Pickling. We have a huge garden each year and the last two years I have canned a ton of pickles! {the bread and butter ones are my favorite}!
They are a hit, and I share them with family and friends....I have flipped through and found a few recipes that I can't wait to try!
AND there was also a A SQUIRREL living in the box!
His name? Davy Crack-it! He is a nutcracker. AH-Dorable!

So now that THE BOX is gone, I can move on- I was having great anxiety over it!

I had the BIG appt today! Finally!
I was going to take a pic earlier today, but it took a long time for my lips to not feel like giant dessert plates.
I had A LOT of pain! The appt was at 8am and I didn't leave until 11am. The "stuff" wore off around 1pm and it was awful!
So sensitive...I am actually having issues typing now bc of the pain meds....
They gave me shots- but no gas...and  I was tense for the whole 3 hours.... the whole time I questioned myself ,thinking that this is the worst decision I have ever made...
until I looked in the mirror when he was done!

Now I just wait for the sensitivity to go away!

I have my dashboard set to publish a post with a thank you for the Lovely Blog Awards I have rec'd and Farley's Currently....It will post just after midnight- as to avoid the whole two posts in one day thing....
Can I ask without being rude- where does this rule come from? I heard it is "blog etiquette" to only post once a day- why?

I'm not saying you should post each time your mood changes (this is why I don't have a Facebook acct), but what if you have something really cool in the morning, and then another cool thing later on in the day?
If you wait, as I have, so that you are within your "legal limit" of posts, then you start running into "post overlap"- where you want to post about an old thing, but now you have to put your new thought out there and it makes you forget your old one!

Can you avoid "doubling posting" if you post twice on one day and then skip the next one?
Can you cut the length in half so that the two posts equal that of one regular post?

I promise if you post more than once a day- I will read them both-
and then....
I will talk about you behind your blog, for breakin' the rules! :O)

  1. Oh THANK GOD it wasn't socks! :D

    I'm so glad you got to tear open that box and share your cute purse with us.

    I don't get the super-duper don't double post rule. Is it like double-dipping? Why is it so bad? If you have something to say you should be able to just say it. Of course, my opinion probably shouldn't count. I talk too much! :)

  3. "Talk about you behind your blog."
    Now THAT'S funny!
    I was wondering: How do time zones affect double posting... and is it the time zone of the post-er or the post-reader that starts the clock ticking?

    Well, I'll admit it: I may be the only one who has never seen or heard of a miche so I am off to research miches (or is it an irregular plural?!) instead of doing my report cards.

    Thanks for sharing the box-venture with us...

  4. So cool - love the Miche...and had never heard of it. Happy Birthday!!!!!

    I think I read somewhere a "list of rules" on a Blogger's page and one of them listed was "no blogging twice in one day" because people find it hard to keep up. Hmmmmm.....

  5. Haha it's not really a rule!! Someone posted a "do's and dont's" on how to write a successful blog and recommended that if you post too often people will become sick of you and not want to read your blog, so with that she suggested limiting your posts to once a day. However, as a fellow blog addict, I don't care how many times a day you publish your blog posts, you are fun and I would read them all! Love that comment about Facebook! Haha!!

  9. Happy Birthday! I was dying for you to open that box!!! Never heard of a miche either but I LOVE it! And I agree that I disagree with that rule also. Although, I'm a very bad post-er. If I post once a week, that's good for me. Awful, I know! But I will not be offended if you post more than once. I love reading your blog! Happy, happy day!
