Keeping it profound - my 1000th post

Wow. One thousand posts.
Some better than others, but pretty much all me.
I have a complicated relationship with blogging, just like everyone else who blogs regularly.
I'm tempted to quit it sometimes too, just to sever the umbilical cord that's formed between me and the computer and interwebs. But I really believe more good than ill has come of it.
So I'll keep on keeping on.
And I'm happy that there's some record of my life, as incomplete as it may be.
And as ordinary as it may be.
If there's one thing I've learned, it's that ordinary is wonderful, and the quest for extraordinary is an overrated sign of insecurity and imbalance.
And with a Sir O who probably can't fathom the world without me, what have I got to be insecure about?
I know exactly where I belong, and I'm pretty much there.
You know, except when I'm not quite.
But if I'd perfected life, it'd be time for me to die.
And I'm in no rush.
I'll keep learning, having good and bad days.
It'll all be right here.

Thanks for reading.

oh! We just put all our christmas decorations up, and found an old Christmas card from you. It was the one from 2006. You included your blog address and Sir O's footprint. Josh pulled it out and said, "Ohh, so this is where our blogging lives began!"

Thank you so much for introducing me to blogs. I look up to each of your fun posts and wish mine had the same wit or cleverness.

To 1000 more posts!!!
