Today is a BIG day over here! It’s The Blob’s fifth birthday!!!! Really, I can not believe it!

 Fifth birthday party - Kiwi Families

It sort of snuck up on me. I was aware it was coming, but January has just raced by. I cannot believe it has been five years. Five years of learning, growing, living and capturing a goodish amount of it in this here online journal. I still enjoy blogging, but I must confess there was more blog fodder when the kids were younger and The Boy lived at home. I am pretty sure he still has much fodder going on over there in The Windy City, but I don’t always hear about it! I still think of things I want to share with Y’All, but many of days are played out just doing life without interesting tidbits. I have skipped some days, which Capri’s L and D assure me is fine. I am ever so thankful you have embraced The List with me, because sometimes random is where we are and I want to drag you along!

I am also thankful for the way this space helps me to stay connected with folks. Family, old friends, new friends and even blob friends I have never met! Our children think that is so bizarre! There are many more of you out there who stop in regularly and anonymously, and I am thankful for you too!

So here it is, the yearly request for comments, for the anonymous to reveal themselves, for the infrequent commenter’s to drop a line, and for all to wish The Blob a big old Happy Birthday!!!!! It’s all the present we could hope for!

Come have a piece of internet birthday cake!
