Of all the years for me to decide to write every single day, I had to pick a Leap Year. Consider this a bonus post and in honor of it being a bonus, I’m going to be all over the place in this one.
First of all, I try to take advantage of certain milestones or days to post about since I have to come up with hundreds of ideas to write about. Yesterday, I didn’t realize until after I hit “publish”, that it was my 100th blog post. I have been blogging since May of last year and never thought I would actually make it to triple digit numbers when it came to posting. I’m going to pause and give myself a little pat on the back.
In regards to Leap Year. I have had two feelings about this day. They both have to do with people who were born on February 29th. I remember having a teacher or someone of similar stature, that was born on Leap Day and them saying they were only 7 years old since their birthday only came around every 4 years. I was pretty young – maybe 5 or 6, but I distinctly remember thinking this person has no authority over me. They are only a year older than I am! The second thought was I’m glad I wasn’t born on this day. I wouldn’t get presents every year. So in a nutshell, being born on Leap Day, in my eyes, really sucked. I always felt that birthdays and The Olympics, should come every year.(The summer Olympics – not the B rated, Winter Olympics.) I still don’t know what people do if they were born today as far as tracking their age. Is it counted on February 28th or March 1st? I’m just curious – I’ve lived 35 years and not had enough interest to actually look it up so if you know – go ahead and comment.
My last piece of useless information was that I woke up with hives all over my body today. I have absolutely no idea what they are from, but I was scratching the hell out of my legs, arms, and head last night. I was going to go to urgent care, but I know they would have told me to take some Benadryl. So I saved myself $25 and picked up some allergy drugs at CVS after I dropped Kamryn off at school. The directions said adults over 12 could take 2 and I thought that was a good idea since I was about ready to tear the skin off my body. About 30 minutes later, I was so loopy and tingly, I haven’t been able to move from my chair. I’m no longer itchy and the hives are gone. Thank God I wasn’t born today because I would have been turning 9 (I think) and only been able to take one pill!

Congrats on your 100th post!
I’m only on my 28th… I think. I’m losing count already. But this blogging thing is kinda addictive. I just have to stop wondering if I sound like a complete ass all the time LOL
Anyway, congrats on the 100th – I was glad to get a post done for Feb 29th too. That won’t be happening again until 2016 and for all I know, I might not even be blogging then.
I decided, somewhat hastily, to blog everyday in 2012. I really didn’t think it through because there are days where I literally stare at my computer for hours with absolutely nothing going through my head.
I am positive I sound like an ass some days but that’s just part of who I am!
I have the same problem when I try to write creatively – more often than not, I’ll sit and stare, positively willing those words to magically appear on the screen. Occasionally, I’ll squeeze a sentence out of several hours work. Sometimes it’ll just spew forth and it sounds fantastic… and then re-read it the next day and realize how crap it really is. Very occasionally, the stars align, fortune favours the foolish and I’ll actually write something insightful, intelligent and slightly witty. Those are the good days. 🙂
I’m always shooting for intelligent and slightly witty. Unfortunately, those are harder and harder to come by. I need to get better about writing down my witty comments I make throughout the day and start my posts from there!
