I Think I May be Addicted.

I must say, I love blogging. I love reading blogs, writing blogs and talking about them. Way Cooler really loves the last one. Really Really. He is dying to know what you all are up to every day. Dying. At least I like to think he is. So I fill him in. I'm sweet that way.

I've added to my blog roll (and didn't screw that up, MIRACLE) but want to highlight just a few that make me smile.

A Long Way from the Theta House. This is written by a mom who lives and ministers in the inner city of Dallas. She is a fabulous writer and she writes about stuff that I can totally relate to. Like being the only white in the local Minyard. Not that I can relate any more, but it brings back so many good memories of my time in Dallas.   Just a note, while I did work in a predominately African American part of Dallas, it was not the "hood" that Melissa and her family live and work in.  Her ministry is infinitely more challenging than mine was.  

Life In Progress. She is flat out funny. This is truly one of my favorite posts of all times.

Our Little Tongginator. I could totally see myself sitting with her and having coffee. Except our kids would have destroyed the house in the time it takes for the coffee to perk and she lives rather far away, but otherwise, could totally see it. 

Laughter for Days To Come.  Jeana has done a series on extreme frugality that is SO worth reading, even if you don't feel the need to be frugal or think that you are queen of frugal.  It's one of the few frugality things on the net that I've come across that feels teach-y not preach-y. 
These are just a few of my new loves, but all the ones in my blogroll are worth reading. Just bear in mind, I think reading blogs with opinions quite different from mine is good for me. So, while they are on my sidebar I may not agree with everything they say, but I love the way in which they say it.

STOP! STOP the madness! I KNOW I'm addicted and now you've given me more to be addicted to! There's just no end to many great blogs, so little time.
Having an addictive personality is rough.
But I love it too. :)

I love blogs too, ones that make me think, ones that make me cry and laugh. Ones that present a view of the world I've never taken before, and ones that shout to the world the things that I shout out back. You're right, there are so many good things to find out there!!

I know Jeana. But the others? They are new. And now I'll have to check them out.


It's a wonderful thing, the blogging world. But it's like M&Ms -- hard to stop once you get started.

Thank you, ma'am!

Why, thank you, ma'am. And yes -- coffee is what I do. And destruction is right up the Tongginator's alley. You stop on by anytime.
