Two years minus one day

Thank you everyone for your prayers. Honestly, that’s the only thing that’s been carrying me through this. Sleep deprivation is a terrible thing. Father, Ginger and Duchess are essentially well. Ribby has kept down some food today and Pickles has kept down fluid. When he wakes up from his long afternoon nap, I’ll let him have a little food if he feels like it. So far Flopsy is unscathed. I hope tonight is not her night…

So tomorrow is this blog’s second anniversary. I’m feeling a little too drained to come up with anything exciting or different to do tomorrow. So I’m turning to you. What is your favorite post? It doesn’t matter if it’s short or long, silly or serious. If you have one, leave it in the comment box (don’t worry about leaving a link, just the general idea). In looking back over the last two years, I’m curious to know what about this blog you like. Not that I’m planning on swerving in a different direction or catering to only one interest (perish the thought!) but I’d like to know what people like about it.

And one more thing: I don’t put a whole lot of stock in the number of followers a blog has. After all, if you look, some of the people following a blog are also following six hundred other ones. But as I mentioned a few days ago, I do like round numbers so it would be pretty cool in a way to see the number of followers round up to 50. I will be realistic and say that 40 is a round number too and I’m just as likely to lose seven followers as gain three, especially after a post like this!

But seriously, thank you for hanging in there. Some of you have been there for the entire life of the blog (Hi Rebecca!) and others of you came last week, but I’ve enjoyed getting to know all of you. It’s been really fun and I look forward to another year. (c;

  1. You know I love your blog, but I can't pick just one post that is my favorite. What I will tell you is some of my favorite things about your blog: your honesty, the photographs, the fun and interesting things you link to, the ways that you demonstrate how to live out the Orthodox faith, and the fact that you stand up for what you believe in. Keep blogging 🙂


  2. I like it all!! 🙂

    You know on google reader you have 75 people reading you!

    Including me of course…


    praying that these illness will all end shortly; yay for 2 years on the blog!


  3. Matushka Anna, the best thing about your blog is that it is very real. Strangers like me wind up feeling like neighbors. Since we don't have any Orthodox friends nearby, I'm so grateful to have online neighbors. Hope you all are well for Thanksgiving — but you know, one of our most memorable Thanksgivings was when we were in the middle of a stomach bug. I can't remember what we ate (mashed potatoes?), but we had a big Thanksgiving performance with songs and skits in the living room. Hang in there!


  4. Well, thank you everyone (I'm blushing)! I'm glad people like it the way it is. I'm allergic to change. Maria, I feel the same way. Elizabeth, I don't know how to work google reader so I wouldn't know!

    We're getting better! I'm about to post an update.


  5. Haven't figured out Google reader either, but I follow you in my Firefox live bookmarks! 🙂

    I don't think I can pick a favorite, but I love your sense of humor, so anything that is remotely funny would be on my list.

    On a non-related (except that it's funny) note, the Word Verification is “poophea”… sounds like one of my daughters' insults that's missing a “d”…. 😛
