S.N.A.F.U.Posted: March 31, 2016
To say my little blog has gone off the tracks in the last year would be an understatement. First there was the move to New Orleans. It was a good thing, but it took a lot of time and effort. Then there was our extended period without internet service. That was a bad thing that took a lot of time and effort. And then there was the arrival of my new little sister, Tallulah Bee. She’s a very good thing, but she takes a whole lot of time and effort.
This makes my human mommy
a little very sad. My blog is important to her because I am important to her. I’ve told you before that I have hip and elbow dysplasia. When I was diagnosed just before my first birthday, Mommy didn’t know how many years she’d have with me. (I’m pleased to report that, at seven years old, I am happy and healthy.) She started my blog as a way to make every single day of my life special and to remember all those special days. She’s enjoyed sharing my life with you and sharing the lives of all the blog friends we follow. She’s missed that a lot in the last year.
So that’s why she was so excited about starting the A to Z blogging challenge on April 1. We did it a couple of years ago, and it was great fun. You blog every day in April (with Sundays off), working your way through the alphabet from A to Z. We even had a little theme for this year–HL does NOLA from A to Z–and had started taking photos for our daily posts. We were looking forward to sharing New Orleans with you through our eyes. It seemed like the perfect way to get my little blog back on track.
She sat down last night all ready to tell you about our plans . . . and that’s when her computer decided that cooperation simply wouldn’t be in the cards. Even three-plus hours of on-line tech “support” couldn’t fix the problems. So today the computer goes to the real-life geeks to see what they can do. It probably won’t be an easy fix. Fixes so seldom are easy. And, just when it looked as if we might be getting back on track with the blog, Mommy’s feeling a bit permanently derailed. And that makes her very sad.
