Quiet Time.

08 September 2013

I do much better in a room of 33 than a room of 473,733… which is how many of you visited me here in the last seven days.

If the words almost half a million people don’t freak you out, allow me to put it in perspective for you.  That is TEN times the normal amount of visitors I have in a month.  In seven days.

It was so completely unexpected.  Except to Dave apparently, who said, “Michelle, you’ve been writing good stuff for five years, I’m actually kind of surprised it hasn’t happened before.”  Now you all know exactly why I married him.  He also wanted me to tell everyone on the internet that he does indeed love fat chicks with hairy legs, well… just one fat chick with hairy legs.  <<—THAT WAS SARCASM.  He said you’re going to have to get your own though because clearly I am taken.  He has also started calling me Lady McFancyPants, Queen of the Internet.

He apparently doesn’t know that the Bloggess is the Queen of the Internet and is also about the nicest human being on the planet.  Jenny, you have no idea what 2 seconds of your time and ‘been there’-ness did for my anxiety level, because it was at an eleven.  Thank you.  You too, Kristin.  And KristinaGigiEm.  And Lyndsey and Elise, my mom, Jen and Emily and Amy who all caught me hyperventilating into a paper bag.  And Lora, you.  A whole really lot.

I love to have people over, but sweet baby Jane.  I can’t get anything accomplished when you all are double dipping, drinking all of my wine, and playing the music too loud.  This week you get me, back to normal, mouth no longer completely agape at the insanity, and slightly less rant-y than my Moms, When Are You Going to Learn post.

It’s still the weekend, go have some fun.

PS.  I like you guys.

I think your Learn post afforded us mommas a hit of kindness and reassurance... And there's unfortunately not a lot of that going around! I loved it and I think you have a great voice in your writing. Looking forward to reading more!

I agree with Amy!! I read a lot of the mom blog that I see circulated on Facebook and what I liked about yours so much is that I kept thinking about it days and weeks later. It was true, honest, funny, and a good message. I love your blog now and love what your husband said about it! Looking forward to reading more from you!! Pinterest-Party On!

Someone on my FB news feed randomly shared your post and I thought, I "know" her! Lol. I realize I only "know" you from reading your blog, but it definitely couldn't have happened to a nicer person, and I agree with your husband, I'm shocked it hasn't happened before. Have a great day!

Yay - it's easier to get to know people in a room of 33. How do you do, sister.

I missed whatever happened to get your traffic spike but I'm in total agreement with your husband. It was only a matter of time.

Wow! That is amazing! Your blogs helped me to realize that every mom is different and that no one mother is doing the right way! So thanks for that! :) There is a reason you have a huge following.

I just love your posts. So much fun. :)

Congrats! I know you must've worked very hard to get to this point! I'm one your new followers and I wish I had found you earlier!!
