The Water is Not That Bad!

So here I go!!

I have been slowly circling the black hole of blogland for a few months now. Just observing it from a safe distance but not quite ready to get sucked in.

It all started when my mom, yes my technologically inept mom, calls me and says she has a blog!

My mother doesn't even know how to text message yet somehow she not only knows what a blog is but actually has one?!

Even my seventy something Grandma knows how to text and send picture messages!



So immediately after this phone conversation I had to check it out and was flabbergasted.

I always knew my mom was funny, she has always been funny, but I didn't realize that other people thought she was funny. I mean come on...she is just my mom! I though it was only I that understood her quirky sense of humor.

Not only that people think she is COOL!? I spent most of my young teenage years being completely embarrassed in public because I swear she can't control the volume of her voice! Well, that's not really fair because my whole family has that problem. We always joke that when we are having a family argument the one talking the loudest is winning.

Anyways I became hooked! Always checking to see if she had posted a new one...then slowly started reading and following the blogs that she would recommend...

It is now safe to say that I am hooked!
I need my daily injection of blog or I start to go through with bloggy withdrawals.

I never thought that what my mom had to say would ever be such a fun part of my day.
Hell I have only spent a better part of the last 27 years trying to ignore her (again that whole volume thing didn't help)!

So thanks a lot mom! I now have another addiction that is going to make my boyfriend crazy! As if my addiction to mindless and trashy reality shows weren't enough...










I am now going to ignore him to tell complete strangers about my not so interesting life!

So 10 years down the road when I am totally alone and become a crazy cat lady that smells like I sleep in a litter box it is all your fault!

  1. oh NICE....your first blog post and you're already funnier than me! It sorta pisses me off and makes me proud at the same time!!! I loved the picture of me with MY MOUTH OPEN. Gee how flattering..and true! And who said you aren't ALREADY a crazy smelly cat lady?? (exclaimed in a VERY loud voice). Oh and Daddy said he's impressed with your writing and drawing skills. Great now he likes your blog better than mine! I love you darlin...mommy is sooooo proud!

  2. What's your problem with old ladies not knowing how to text, sugar?!?! I don't, but I'm a whiz at the computer and much older than your mommy, chickee! :-) Of course, don't even ask about not knowing how to even turn on a television since we gave them up 25 years ago. Arrrrrrghhhhhhh..... But welcome to blogland and hope you're just half as funny as yer mom, honey! Wooooooooeeeeeeeeee.....
    xoxo,

  4. Hi, newbie! I like your new page. Congrats on the blog. I just want you to know that I will be watching you! I am an avid reader of your mom's blog, and because my daughters may also try to sneak in a blog on me (so they can torture and embarrass and harrass me) I must concentrate and learn your ways. I must be ready for the day my offspring launch their own covert strategery. But in the meantime, good luck!

  5. I came over from your mom's blog, and you are both HILARIOUS! I would expect nothing less.

    And you are also my new BFF because I am a VH1 reality TV show whore like you.

    Your blog should be awesome.

  6. Your mom sent me and I find you to be as entertaining as she is, so I decided to become one of your stalkers.

    Nicely done!

  7. Welcome to blogland! We just love your mom. Now we can get a double dose of laughter. Thanks :o)

  8. Anyone can blog as long as they know the difference between to, too and two

    It's my only requirement in reading someone's blog.

  11. Hi, I've been asked to come over here and ask you to be "nice to your mom." Now that that jobs done I have to tell you that you're a pretty funny girl! My SIL is from Texas and, yes, he'll be the first one to tell you how great it is, LOL! I look forward to more funny times to come on your blog and am bookmarking you! Cindy
    P.S. Is it bad that I can't send a text message either and don't even have a cell phone anymore? People kept finding me when I didn't want to be found, LOL!

    ReplyDelete

  14. I'm another one like The Blue Ridge Gal, so I get to tell you your 'to' at the end of your profile should be 'too'. Now that THAT's out of the way, I look forward to the Mom & Kid blog banter. Welcome to Blogland!

  15. Welcome to blogland, Lindsey. already you have a cool looking blog. You know from reading your mom's blog that we all love her and think she's funnier than Letterman and Leno and it looks like you inheirited her "funny" genes.
    I love the pictures of your fur babies especially the one drinking out of your glasses on the nightstand!!
    This blogging stuff is really addicting, as you are finding out. Have fun with it and spill your guts, inquiring minds want to know.
    Love that picture of your grandparents, they must really be young at heart.

    PS Congrats on your recent accomplishment, that your mom told us about.

  25. hello!!!! I slipped over from your mom's blog....you are as cute as she is! She won't show us what she looks like...but I am sure if her kids are any indication...she is beautiful too!
    I love to visit her...she always makes me smile ...I wonder what my kids think of me? lol (the oldest is 9...so I suppose cool is not a word he would use for his mom...lol)
    Welcome to the world of blogging...we all have such a good time...and you will find out how much support you can get from some of the nicest people you have never "really" met!

  35. Well! We sound a lot alike! my hubby gets SUPEr annoyed that I decided to have 2 blogs now, and that I sit in bed at night reading countless updates and posting my own! Get used to it! heehee.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Hi Lindsey!!! I've been stalking your mom since she was on RMS!! A warning should be posted on her blog that older ladies MUST wear "Poise" before reading!!! So as payback I want to encourage you to give us ALL the dirt you can!!!lol (sorry Nikki - just kidding!) What I really intended to say was WELCOME TO BLOGLAND!!! I look forward to reading your posts! Sincerely, Jeannette (Oh and I love the design as well!!)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Well, well, well, WELCOME to the world of blogging. Watch out, it becomes pretty addicting.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Welcome to blogland. Your mom is a tough act to follow. I can guarantee you if you do a weeklly post about your mom your comment post will be on fire!! Give us the scoop!! What about Wacky Mom Wednesdays or something? HA.

    Hope you enjoy blogging.

    ReplyDelete
  39. I am still giggling about originally being from Utah--(Spanish Fork is my old hood) and that you are from the GREAT state of Texas. I love it. I guess people there are as prideful as the people in Washington. (throw-up)

    And, yes, there is not much of a picture of Payson. Maybe the freeway. Oh, the Walmart is pretty cool there.

  40. Hi Lindsey,

  41. Welcome to Blogland Lindsey!! Talk about double pleasure, double fun, this is gonna be good!!! Your mom cracks me up and looks like your blog is going to be as witty as hers (sorry Nikki).

    WARNING: Blogging is addicting!

    ReplyDelete
  42. Welcome, and yes your mom is both cool and funny :).

    ReplyDelete
  43. Welcome Lindsey!! And yes, it's obvious you have your mom's DNA!! You're gonna have sooooo much fun doing this! Confession, your mom is not the only one late at learning to text. I was finally forced to have my 14yr old show me how a couple of months ago, sad!!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Now, y'all be nice!
    My mom's best southern advice was 'if you don't have something nice to say then just hush.'

    this is going to be fun!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. obviously, great blogging runs in this family! This was a fun first post! Welcome to Blogville, and keep up the good work! laurie

    ReplyDelete
  46. Lindsey, did you miss your mom's "I Wish" post that said "I wish everybody would get rid of that word verification thing", or did you add it to yours just to get under her skin?laurie

    ReplyDelete
  47. Welcome! Now we get to read the antics of 2 Crumpet-girls! (or do you have a different dog?)
    We all love your Mommy, so it won't be any trouble at all to love you too (to be honest, I'm having a LITTLE trouble loving Lacey with that flat-as-a-pancake belly of hers. So, if you, too, have attributes that make men drool and women cringe, it would behoove you not to show pics!
    Have a wonderful weekend....post often....ESPECIALLY if any of your posts have pics of your Mom~
    ♥,Lilly

    ReplyDelete
  48. LoL! You really ARE your mother's daughter! But thats a good thing-she is so funny and I adore her and totally dig on her blog!!! So welcome to blogland and looking forward to getting to know you!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Welcome to Blogland. Your mom sent me, and let's see ... my instructions were ... um ... you know I'm old, and I don't remember too much... can't text either. Hm, say, I lived in Texas once, and liked it too.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Your mother sent me over to visit, and I always listen to your mother.

    My son felt the same way about me having a blog, and now he has one, too. The main difference is that he doesn't usually get my sense of humor - although he is very funny. I guess it's that male thing.

    Good luck - and be sure to make your momma proud. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  51. First, be NICE to your mom, she's great!
    Second, welcome to blogland.
    Third, like what I see and am now following you.
    Fourth, be nice to your mom, I'm watching you!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Oh Lindsey, you should hear the pitter patter of my heart right now. Nikki's daughter blogging? Bwaaaaaaaa haaaaaaaaa haaaaaaaaaaaa! Your mom mentioned mine and my sister Jill's, blog wars. I propose that you start a mom/daughter blog war. Oh, the possibilities for humiliation are never-ending! Or, the four pups can take over the blogs to humiliate each other AND their humans. Oh the joy!
    Girl, one post and you're already going on my blog roll. I don't want to miss a thing!

    Justine :o )

    ReplyDelete
  53. Okaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay...you're pretty cute! You have your mom's sense of humor!!!!! Geeeeez look at you...your blog is only a newborn baby and you have more followers than I do after months and months....that probably says something about my blog compared to you and your mom's....what does she have...something like a million or so??? Welcome to our crazy bloggity blog blog world and I think your grandma is a pretty cute little gal too! Just have fun! Can't wait to hear all that you have to say to us...

    ReplyDelete
  54. Very nice! The apple doesn't fall far from the tree, does it? And look at all the comments you have on just your first post! I've been blogging for almost a year and the most comments I've ever had on a post is 33. Not only are you gorgeous (if you weren't so funny and didn't have such an awesome mom-I'd totally have to dislike you) but you're kicking butt with the comments. :)

  57. OK cool--you mom sent me here, (sometimes she pretends she hates me cause I sabatoged a Wednesday Wish photo from her, sheeeesh, she sure holds a grudge--but I KNOW she loves me)anyway, spill the dirt on your mom!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  58. FYI, look at all your comments! When I first started blogging, I was lucky if I got one. Pays to know somebody, huh? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  59. I am loving this already.
    I am your mom's buddy Jill.. sister of the looney Justine! Your mom has a great blog and we have become friends over time. She is a great lady. I am so happy I am able to follow your blog now. Make sure you put lots of juicy stuff on here for your mom ... lol!!!!!!!!!

    Come visit me too!

    Jill :)

  60. Well, it's clear where you get your sense of humor from. And your use of illustrations. I love the stick figure pic, that cracked me up!

    Welcome to the blogosphere! I love that I can read a mother and daughter blogging at each other. It'll be like Candy and Tori Spelling and how fun is THAT?

  61. Coming here through your mum! She may be technically inept, but she sure makes me laugh.. And you know what - you might too!

    So, Welcome!

    ReplyDelete
  62. By the way, do you really need to have word verification on right now? Sometimes it takes 2-3 attempts to leave a comment with it...

    It would be darling of you to switch if off, if you could! Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Lindsey,

    Welcome to this crazy world of blogsphere... This is an amazing amount of comments for a first post!!! But then you are Nikki's offspring.:)
    Yes, I can send phone pictures and text but I let the 13 year old at our house do it for me because her fingers move faster than lightening! And she also know sthe language better than I do!
    Your mom does not only have an incredibly funny blog she is also one of the nicest people I hve met in in blogland. She is someone I have come to care about and see the softer side. You are such a Lucky girl to have her!
    I am glad you too have joined this wonderful world of cyber friends! I look forward to reading you often!

  64. Texting is highly overrated. Women of our age have other talents. (Right Nikki??) I say be nice to your mom but dish us the dirt anyway. I'll be back. Mimi

    No, really.

  68. Lindsey- I am so excited you have come to the dark side! I am your neighbor in TX and the one who is always trying to get your freakin' mom to come visit you so we can hook up. I say, lets just start "hanging out" together and she will HAVE to come to TX to shut us up (or bail us out...) Congrats on the new blog!!! Come see me!

  70. It's obvious the apple doesn't fall far from the tree...and I mean that in a good way! ;) Your mom is one of my all-time favorites and she sent me over with a message, but I got distracted by some bright shiny objects so I forget what it was I was 'supposed' to tell you... *shrugs* Must not have been important... ;) Welcome to the blogosphere - you have started off with a bang and I'm looking forward to reading your fun(ny) future posts! :)
