Blogaversary...Year Eight



It's hard to believe that's it been eight years since I started Reflections on a Middle-Aged Fat Woman. Over the past eight years Reflections has grown from a one paragraph post about my visit to the doctor into stories of my farm life as a girl, my continuing search for the perfect job, tales of hospital visits, unfortunate mishaps at the drive through and the silly things that can happen in everyday life.

One of my readers once told me that the main reason they like coming to visit the site is they never quite know what to expect and usually, get a laugh in return. Personally, I still think that is the highest compliment that can be paid to a writer, and for that, I'm grateful.

Of all of the stories that I've written my favorites are those that involve my family, especially my mom. I've been very lucky to be able to experience trips to the mall, trips around the southeast, a cross-country bus ride trip to Las Vegas and the Grand Canyon and a Christmastime Riverboat Cruise down the Danube with Mom and we always have a great time.

Last September we headed up the East Coast on another bus ride to experience New England in the fall. We had a spectacular time.

This year we are keeping with the tradition of cross-country bus rides but are headed to the Colorado Rockies and surrounding areas. We're going to Pike's Peak, the Air Force Academy and Olympic Training Center. We can't wait!

Thanks for stopping by and reading my stories and I hope to see you again real soon. As you've probably figured out by now, you never know what I'm gonna be talking about!

Happy Blogaversary!

Taking bus rides to other parts of the country sounds fun. I rode a bus from Ohio to Florida once but had two kids under 3 and was pregnant so it wasn't much fun. Another time I rode the bus from North Carolina to Florida. I was by myself so nope, not fun that time either. It would have been better if I'd had a window seat.

Hi Vicki--At least you didn't sit by the guy that ate burritos and farted the whole trip!
