Yes, I'm still here.
I just realized that it's been over three weeks since I last posted.
After quite a dry spell, I finally got some work for my home business (YAY) and I've been so busy with actual work, that I didn't have time to write an actual blog post. (Except for this one where I guest posted)
During the last few weeks, I've had several brilliant ideas of what to write about, but of course now as I'm sitting here at the computer, do you think I can remember any of them?
Yes, I know, I know, when I get an idea, I should write it down, and then I can remember it later, but that would mean that I would need to find a pen or pencil, and then some paper , and by the time I have been able to identify those two items, because I can't ever seem to find them easily, I will have forgotten my idea anyway.
That's just how my memory works sometimes. Not that I have alzheimers or anything, because I'm pretty sure I don't.
Or I think I don't ..............or.................shoot, what was I talking about?
Even though I haven't had the time to write, I have taken a moment now and then to look at my site meter, you know, just to see if I've been forgotten, and I've learned some interesting things, such as.................
There are a ton of people going to google and looking for "Thou shalt not whine" and variations on that phrase.
Thou shalt not whine sign
Thou shalt not whine plaque
Though shalt not whine
Thous shall not wine
Come on, it's called spell check people, please use it!
Several people googled "How not to whine"
Other strange keywords leading to my blog were;
Toilet whine on flushing
What is the biggest item that can be flushed and not get stuck in the toilet
Fix stuck liquid soap dispenser
Hey do you want to split a
But my all time favorite keyword inquiry is....
How to force your Daddy to buy you want when he's already about to not buy you one because your whining too much
I would be interested to know what it was this kid wanted, and I certainly hope that their Daddy didn't buy it for them, because whining should not be rewarded.
I also really enjoy finding out where the people live that are reading my blog. I always get a kick out of seeing where in the world my blog is being read.
However, I've discovered someone visiting my blog lately that concerns me a bit. Quite a few times I have seen..............
Arlington Virginia. The host address is from The Pentagon.
Yes folks, someone from The Pentagon is reading my blog.
Now I have to wonder why anyone from The Pentagon would be interested in reading my blog. Seriously, do stories of butt ugly homemade bread and tales of potty training failures have anything to do with national security?
Or, are they studying me trying to learn different methods of torture from my children?
(I feel that whining is indeed a very effective method of torture)
Are they trying to find out how long the average stay at home mom can listen to four children whine before completely losing it?
Are they trying to learn which items can and can't be flushed down the toilet successfully?
And why would they need all this handy information?
Are they the ones who took all of my missing spoons? Am I part of some twisted experiment where they take various forms of flatware from people to see how long it takes before they buy a new set? (We bought a new set last month. I think we're already missing a few spoons.)
And why just the spoons? Why are there no forks missing? Especially that enormous serving fork or the butter serving knife, (like anybody really uses those anyway)
Are they at all confused by the last paragraph that I typed? (because, seriously, I am.)
Or is it just some cleaning lady that works at the Pentagon, sneaking on to the computers during her break time to read blogs?
This subject has me rather perplexed.
So, Pentagon blog stalker, comment.
I dare you.
What do you all think?
Why is the Pentagon taking such an interest in my blog?
