Fashionably late to the party

I hereby swear that I will not talk about the house unless I have an actual answer…on here.

Which leaves me free to whine, moan and basically be a big fat baby about it on Facebook, Twitter and any other possible method of communication.

But not here.

Instead, I will talk about something that everyone else did yesterday!

Did you know yesterday was Delurking Day ’09?

What does that really mean?

It means that yesterday all you readers that never comment were supposed to come out and actually comment…delurk.

Aaaaand, I missed it.

So, I’m declaring this the Was-Nearly-Delurking-Day ’09.

Now I truly love all of you that comment regularly!  In fact, I’ve made some really incredible friends through this blog.

But this day is for all the others who read and leave, those of you who filter me through a feed reader and never click through to comment….today, you MUST!  HA! I have a cute little graphic picture that says so.

I can’t wait to see some new names and see if maybe it’s not just my mom clicking on the site a few hundred times a day.

    I missed Delurking Day, too. I might follow your example and do one today, too!

    I thought you were saying I had to flash someone…least that’s what the picture looks like. I could be sued for that! But since all I have to do is leave a comment…here ya go! Luv and hugs!

    Hey, I thought it meant we got to flash someone, too! So anyway, I have left a comment a couple of times so at least one of those number is not your mom! Maybe you won’t comment anymore but I am still praying for you all and the house! Even tossed in a paryer for the family on the other side of the issue for a positive, quick resolution for all. Happy day!

    OK! I will confess I have lurked for over a year now and check your page every morning when I get to work. No matter what you have to say you say it with so much FUN!! I have cried and laughed and laughed until I cried while reading your blog, even to the point that others in my building wonder what the hell is going on in my office while I am suppose to be working! Anyway, I wish you guys the best luck on the house…oh wait excuse me YOUR house. I am going through the same waiting period on MY house….lol Everything has been accepted, we have the cashiers check in hand waiting on a closing date but then there is a problem with a second mortgage with the owners. So we wait and wait! We were supposed to close on December 31!! Praying for this Friday! So I will hold my breath for the both of us. On second thought I will just pray for the both of us, as the other outcome might not be so pretty! I hope you have a great rest of the week and I will now go back into lurking mode, as this is soooo out of my norm! Keep the fun coming our way! You Rock!

    Likewise, I log on every day to see what is happening outside of my life … and now to see if you get that house that is so yours! I just don’t comment. If you truly want a fun experience, come up to MN today. 4 degrees below for a high temp today!!!

    I just read your post on 5MFSN. I loved it. Amen to your new year’s resolution!

    I’ve got a blog (kidzorg.blogspot) that celebrates special needs children, increases awareness, etc, etc. I would love to share Peyton’s story. Let me know if you’re interested.

    Hi Anissa,
    I’m delurking also, I’ve been following your blog since seeing you and hearing about your family at Lyrics For Life in Clearwater last October. I’ve prayed, cried, smiled and laughed alot since then. Thanks for posting you’ve brought alot of strength to others. I’ll continue prayers for health and happiness in your new house.
    God Bless

    Just two times for me today. Once this AM to see if you got the house and again to see if you heard anything. So maybe I do hit it often-but never comment.

    Hey there slacker…a day late, but at least you showed up to the party.

    And you NEED TO BE ON PLURK! Twitter gives me a headache and I’m too old for FB. So I’m stuck guessing about the house based on your gchat status bar. Ugh!

    Nancy, you’ve GOT to speak up.

    You CANNOT drop a bomb like that and leave me hanging!

    Can I also be fashionably late by delurking three days after everyone else?
