Commenting on Comments

Threeundertwo is doing the most wonderful thing – that I’m just going to have to “borrow” – over at Lit and Laundry. At the very bottom of her post, she addresses comments from the previous post. BUT, since I’ve been extremely lax about keeping up with comments, I’m going to answer them here and then starting next time, I’ll just include it at the bottom of the post. Of course…that implies that I’m assuming I’ll be getting comments. (guilt free blogging…guilt free blogging…guilt free blogging. Alright, I’m okay now.)

Wow – this goes way back…I’m such a bad hostess! Anyway, here we go!

When I was doing 5 Things Friday posts, Marie T asked what tatting was. According to Wikipedia:

Tatting is a technique for handcrafting a particularly durable lace constructed by a series of knots and loops. Tatting can be used to make lace edging as well as doilies, collars, and other decorative pieces. The lace is formed by a pattern of rings and chains formed from a series of cow hitch (or half-hitch) knots, called double stitches (ds), over a core thread. Gaps can be left between the stitches to form picots, which are used for practical construction as well as decorative effect.

Tatting dates to the early 19th century. The term for tatting in most European languages is derived from French frivolitΓ©, which refers to the purely decorative nature of the textiles produced by this technique. The technique was developed to imitate point lace.

I want to thank everyone for their support and empathy while reading my first Is it Just Me post (psychotic urges to feel bad for inanimate objects), my second Is it Just Me post (psychotic towel tendencies. And no, Jon – you CANNOT remove the tags! πŸ˜› ), and my Confession about not being able to spell. It’s so great to know that it’s not just me!

The Ode to a Migraine post snagged poetry lover, Laura – glad I could make your day πŸ™‚Β  And it introduced me to a health website where I can get a lot of information about Migraines (among other things). Score!

Between my Bread post and my Fire Alarm Testing post, I’ve got people watching my every move, I’m sure. Sorry if I pushed anyone’s panic buttons – and no…I would never consider doing any of these.

Debi and Terri want to come to the next adventure involving Eleven Kids under 1. Absolutely!! If it wasn’t obvious, we’re pretty much of the “the more the merrier” mindset. (As long as we know they’re all leaving eventually… πŸ˜‰ )

It came out that Cheryl’s mom makes kick-butt chocolate covered pretzels in the 6 UN-Spectacular Things About Me. I’m there.

MyFaceSpaceBook got me another friend (hi Mommy, Esq.!) over on that teeny-bopper site. Another Score!

Heather, your comment on …With a Chance of Showers, made me gag a little…I so agree! I’ll take pee over poo everywhere ANY day of the week. Silver, I hope the training is going a little bit better for you now!! And Tanya, I so hear you about those bribes. Lolly-pops have gone a long way over here at the Zoo.

Apparently, Laura has my sense of humor because the No Pizza Today (and Baby Bunny Road Pizza) posts tickled her fancy. Again, glad to help you out πŸ˜‰ Also, Threeundertwo mentioned that carrots are a cliche and we should feed Baby Bunny some nice greens. Amen to that. . . I had TOTALLY forgotten that when I owned a black lop-eared bunny (Black Jack), he’d get “the runs” every time I fed him baby carrots. Ya. Lovely. And ya. Our yard had a few bombs…I can’t get the kids to put greens down, but Baby bunny seems to really enjoy Cheerios though (as did Black Jack!).

Cymbals or a xylophone for some Instrumental Payback. Why didn’t I think of that?! Thanks Tabbatha Rose πŸ™‚

Giovanna – I nearly peed my pants when you commented that you could tell me about a Secret Blog, but then you’d have to kill me. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

My 4 Stinkin’ Days post got a bunch of attention as well. I still crack up a bit about What a Card’s MIL doctoring her son’s a birth certificate. Too funny!! And I really appreciated Helen’s point of view…coming from a teacher AND someone who started “early” (And yes, Logan just turned 1 *blush* )

The Host produced a huge compliment – Thanks Laura…coming from a teacher who probably sees MANY names, thinking Burke’s is one of the coolest is so great to hear!! And Rhonda, I still need to get those darn pictures off my phone!! The only way I know how to do it right now is to email them one-by-one to myself… you can see why I haven’t done it yet. *sigh*

The Fx4 post with Gabe in between the twins in their bouncy chairs had Mommy, Esq. inquiring whether Gabe is as nervous around the kids as her black cat is…OH ya. He can’t even be in the same room with any of the kids…runs like a shot when he hears them coming. Probably doesn’t help that Maggie thinks it’s hilarious to try to scare him.

In My Favorite Teacher, Lisa asked if it was actually the someone’s faith in me that changed me…to which I say YES! Which is why we have high standards for our kids…and we believe they will live up to them too πŸ™‚

What a Card comes through again with her insight for why there’s no hay on hay rides any more (Weekend in VT – part 2). Totally makes sense too! heh It was always all scratchy and itchy with the hay anyway…now it’s just splinters to worry about πŸ˜‰

And a big thanks to Heather and Cheryl for commenting on my looks in the last two way back when-sday posts (that had post-birthing pics of me). I do believe that C-Sections and drugs make for much better post-birthing pictures! LOL

MAN! Are you tired of reading yet?? I’m tired of writing. πŸ˜›Β  (thanks for stickin’ it out THIS long) I promise to not let it go that long again…hopefully Threeundertwo’s ingenious solution will help matters.
