A to Z Challenge 2012

Last year, I signed up for the A to Z Challenge and then, days later, my fiance informed me that we were buying a house. We moved, but the house (an inter-family thing) had a lot of damage. We hemmed and hawed. The family finally arranged to make it a doable/reasonable deal for us. We decided to go for it (knowing we were in for tons of repairs and upgrading).  

Then the bank started giving us a hard time, despite excellent credit (a sign of the times). Finally, we got the OK on the mortgage. 

Then, I broke my foot... Etc., etc.  

Needless to say, I FAILED the challenge MISERABLY! Though I may be a failure, I am not a quitter. So, I am going to give it another shot.  

Sign me up!   

During the month of April, I'll be completing 26 alphabetical posts about...well, who knows?! But I hope to use these blogs to add some fun and entertainment to my blog.

Please come along for the ride. I look forward to your comments and suggestions on how I might become a better blogger, and to making new friends and finding lots of new blogs to follow!

Hi Shannon, forst time visitor and great to meet you! Good luck with the A to Z Challenge. I did it last year, had a blast, and met lots of awesome people.

Uh oh. I see your Word Verification (WV) is still on. I'm on a mission to rid the world of this unnecessary evil frustration! Please stop by my blog and select the How To Turn Off Your Word Verification tab and help make the world a better place one blog at a time.

I'm so glad you're giving it another chance! Can't wait to see what you come up with. I hope your April is a little more boring this year.

Since you're not a quitter let's not call last year a failure, but a postponement--you can finish this year. I'm now following and wishing you well.

I'll link to this post on our Sunday Summary at the A to Z Blog.

Oh, and like Stephen mentioned, you might want to disable Word Verification to encourage more comments.
