    Haha! I had to come back to your post because I went and opened another tab to try and find the “I’m going to blog about this” shirt as soon as I read about it! Excellent!

    Hahahhaa. Too funny. It gets addictive on this side too (the reader), and I was laughing and agreeing with a lot of what you said. It started off simple enough for me…I found a blog or two I liked to read, and now…oh my, I have to limit myself to perusing the blogs only when the baby’s asleep, or else I am on this computer WAY too much. There’s a lot of good work going around out there…bloggers rock. 🙂

    **Hi Kayla**

    Hehe! I counted and I hit a whopping 14 out of 17.

    Oh and I SERIOUSLY want that t-shirt 😀

  16. From what I could read through sleep deprived eyes I am def. a blogaholic, maybe I should get some sleep, if I didn’t blog I would be the most well rested mommy alive! Oh well I love blogging so it’s worth it.

  17. Hello, Rachel.
    Hello, Kayla, My name is Lorie, and I am a Blogaholic, too. TeeHee….
    I was laughing so hard, and I was reading it to my hubby. He had to agree that I have a problem, and really now, isn’t that the first step? But, it is also contagious…. The Hubs points out things for me to photograph for my different memes… He’ll say, “wouldn’t that be great for crazy yellow day, or happy blue Tuesday?” Of course, he doesn’t remember the real names, but the thought is there, and that is what really counts – he’s an ENABLER!!!
    Too funny, Shannon…. I just LOVE this post….. oh, and my UPS man’s name is Ken, Fed-Ex is Q (like in the Bond movies….) and the guy at the Post Office is Joe! 🙂

    Don’t let my husband see this! I will be divorced for sure. I swear I will cut back as my new years resolution. It does get addicting and I don’t even have my own blog. geesh.
