True OCD behavior
Normally in our family, D is the one that has a serious case of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. I have a rare outbrake every now and then but more often I'm accused of being so laid back I'm horizontal. However, I just finished commenting on number 135 on the ICLW list. I'm still in my unflattering Dr. Seuss fleece pants, the house is a mess, my doggy has given up hoping for an early walk and my hair is in desperate need of a wash. But I'm an iron commenter - Yay! And I was just about to open the bottle of champagne (or at least have breakfast) when I realized I can't email Mel to get on the honor roll because my default mail is not set for gmail, I don't know how to change it, and I can't find her email adress written anywhere... (insert cartoon running for the hills screaming) -NOOOOOOOOOO!
What to do? Can I leave a comment commenting on my commenting on her latest post maybe?
Meanwhile, I'll just make my own badge and pretend it's the real deal...
Update X number of hours later: I got the real badge - Yippee! Thanks Mrs Bee and Mel for helping this digitally challenged girl :-) I feel a little silly being so happy about this feat, but this week has given me a jump start in this whole new world of blogging. And when I later saw the warm recognition Mel gave my "The What if Not List" post in her Friday Blog Round Up I was so happy I picked up the phone to call D. But I quickly had to remind myself that I want this to be an anonymous blog where I can be completely honest and not worry about what any of my loved ones think and promptly put the phone down. I did a little happy dance in my office instead. Then I cleaned the house, took one happy dog for a long walk, jumped in the shower and put on some jeans. It's Friday, the sun is shining and I feel pretty good.
Have a great weekend!
