The Seinfeldian Post

Not tonight dear, I have a headache. And by “dear,” I mean Blog Dare.

You know the drill, one post a day for a year. It was a dare. I have to do it.

Not. in. the. mood.

I have a couple good ideas for posts, but they will require thought, gathering pictures and concentration to write.

Not. in. the. mood.

I’ve said those words to my husband once or twice in the last 17 years. He’s still around and I suppose the Blog Dare will be, too.

But I did see a video today that was adorable, funny, touching and inspiring. I hope dear hubby and I have that much fun when we’ve been married 62 years!

As for the Blog Dare, that will be over by then and since I assume the Jetson’s age will finally be here by then, I won’t even need a blog.  the-jetsons

My thoughts will just be projected up from my head for all to read.


So, have you figured out why this is a ‘Sienfeldian’ post? Because it’s about nothing! :)

Thank you kindly!

As you may know, I took the Community of Mom’s Blog Dare–write a blog post every day for one year. I’m 35 days in.

I’m really enjoying this for many reasons. One of them is that I’m getting to know other bloggers through Community of Moms. I’m learning from and being entertained by them. I hope they’d say the same about me.

At least a couple have. I’ve been awarded the Bogart Award by two of my blogger friends over at Community of Moms: Kim, the Misplaced Midwesterner and Tiffany, The Keeper at Home. Tiffany is also the creator of Community of Moms. Both of their blogs are worth checking out in my opinion! (and not just because they were nice enough to bestow this award on me)

So what’s the Bogart Award?

“This award means you’re really going places, Baby. You’ll still be blogging about your great adventures 10 years from now, and I’ll still be reading them.”

Here are the rules for this award:
- link back to the blogger who sent me this award       check
- post where I would like to be in 10 years                 check (see below)
- pass it on to 10 awesome bloggers                          check (see below)

Ten years from now…I will be 52, I will have been married 27 years (more than half my life), my oldest son will be a senior in college, the next will be a freshman, my oldest daughter will be 16, learning to drive, starting to date and a junior in high school. My youngest daughter will be 12, full of hormones, wanting to date and in the junior high. Folks, I just hope to be alive, sane and sober by then!

Now for the 10 blogs I read that I think are Bogie worthy and you should check out (in alphabetical order):

2 Wired 2 Tired

Artist, Mother, Teacher

Classy Chaos

Does This Blog Make Us Look Fat?

Every Other Thursday

Hope for Peyton

Nick Coe

Welcome to Pace Place

So, there you have it!That’s actually 11, but I couldn’t decide.

Thank you, kindly, Kim and Tiffany for the award!

I Dare Ya!

To many of us, them’s fightin’ words! When said by a kid or teenager to one of his/her peers, the results can be scary…

” I dare you to climb this tree…”

“I dare you to smoke this cigarette…”

“I dare you to stand on this railroad track until the last minute…”

Fortunately, most of us mature and learn not to accept dares that are dangerous and, well, stupid. And, for some of us, the words, “I dare ya!” become challenging, motivational and encouraging words.

I accepted a dare today, the first one in a long time. It’s a dare to blog every day for 365 days. I joined Community of Moms yesterday and read about the Blog Dare. This will be good for me. I want my blog posts to be enjoyable and well written. For me, that usually translates into long so it’s hard to find the time. My husband, who’s been blogging on Social Media and PR since 2005, has told me before that every post doesn’t have to be lengthy to be of value. This dare will force me to put that idea into practice.

New Year’s resolutions are easily and quickly forgotten…but a dare…them’s fightin’ words!

See ya tomorrow! In the meantime, what do you wish someone would dare you to do?

Clean your closets?

Stop smoking?

Lose weight?

Well, go ahead! I DARE YA!
