Who Knew?

Hey you guys, you are the best. I had no idea that I was drinking that much coffee with so many each morning. No wonder I have such a buzz! I have decided to continue with the blog. I have done some soul searching and here is what I have come up with.

The 'F' word isn't the issue. Trust me, I say it enough to my kids to get my fill. I was just spurting off stuff at the top of my head when I made my last entry. I do feel stifled a bit on occasion and I do feel like my voice is often times not the 'real' me but from what every one has written, I guess my 'me' gets out there sufficiently. I also think that having this cast on my leg is making me a little crazy too.

My head is as big as it can get with all the wonderful words from you all. In fact, I had trouble getting through the studio door yesterday and it's a double door! The comments are wonderful and if I didn't know any better I would have thought that I stuck that in just to get some but that too is not the case. I just like to know that there is someone out there every now and then.
I got a call from my friend Millie in Florida this morning and we gabbed and gabbed and she has been bed ridden with a bad knee and so started to read the blog from day one in the last two weeks and has only got to 2009 and she said that I can't stop now. So I won't.

Thank you all for your inspiration. I am back on the saddle.

Welcome back ;-)

As far what you say and how you say it, remember it's your blog. (I think sometimes we have to remind ourselves of that.) I suspect I'm not the only one who stumbled across your blog and decided to subscribe because, in part, of your AUTHENTIC voice. Just be you ... how can anyone expect anything else?

Tommy, You know everyone enjoys your blog, I for one, and so for me not reading every day crimped my routine, but I knew that was your choice. As far as comments, I think so many read about your day/week/month and just enjoy, but yet have nothing to say or comment. If I have comments I email you anyway. A blog is YOUR journal/ideas/thoughts, not anyone elses and so what you have to say...say it, if you offend someone, they can quit reading...but you know they won't. Having said that, I'm fucking glad your back.

Thank you , thank you, thank you. You know, the world is just so full of awful things so being able to escape into " Tommy's world" just makes the day start right. I'll bet Bella is posing for the camera right now. S

YAY!!! Your creative energy has sparked my day many a morning when I couldn't get the rear in gear! I am so glad I won't have to resort to riskier activities. Although, there has been a time or two of coffee up the nose from laughing at something you wrote... not a pretty sight!!

Doin the happy dance! Patte

Cosmos said...

I missed you -- even though you were only gone a few days. Welcome back! I'll try to comment more often so that you remember you are appreciated.

Jeannie said...

Yeah! Happy, happy, happy, and it isn't just because the sun is out. Have a great weekend.

What is there not to love, Tommy? All your readers feel like they are a part of your fun filled life and you certainly have enough fun to go around. No matter how you feel, your generosity of spirit comes through and that's why we all come back... that and you have a fabulous sense of humor. Maybe you should have your own reality show... or Oprah's looking for a new show to sponsor... who better than you? So glad you are back... I'm giddy!

Mechelle said...

YIPPEE!!!!

Susan Turney said...

Well, yahoo! I'm so glad you changed your mind because I need the laughs and chuckles and smirks! And recipes and inspiration!! And shopping finds and techy stuff! And anything else!

Donna said...

Yippee!!! You are back....
thank you!

Colleen Kole said...

I am so happy. I have really enjoyed this cup of coffee with you too. I love the variety in your posts- as it is more real than all this creativity every day. Sometimes that just makes me feel more inadequate with what I try to do. Life is what I come here for and it is good news you will continue. Thanks and I won't be afraid to post.

I had foot surgery in April and it made me a monster. Hang in there.

Marcia said...

YEA! It ain't so!!!!! I sure wish I was in your group of close friends....you do the most amazing, fun stuff...and eat very well :)

Diane said...

Yeah!

Margie said...

Welcome back. I was hoping that you might change your mind and I was going to wait awhile to x you from my daily blog list. I'll pour you an extra glass of wine.

I'm glad to hear you are going to continue blogging I for one sure would miss reading your posts.

Diane said...

Yay! How else will I know what hors d'oeuvres and 1960's recipes you're making? And what your crazy golf team theme will be next? Some of us are living vicariously through your social life!! (Glad you're stickin' around!)

Well, a girl has to do what a girl has to do! I too am thrilled.

masshag said...

So glad you decided to come back. Looking forward to reading your blog each day. I can well imagine your cast is driving you crazy!!!Heat and a cast :(

pheeewwwwww........

judy said...

I am so glad and happy you are staying on.

Jean said...

I'm so relieved!!!! Old ladies get so cranky when their routines are interrupted. I was wondering what I was going to do with that extra time in the morning -- clean? No way!!!! I'm glad I don't have to figure that out now. Once I've commented and know I can do it, I'll try to let you know I'm out here more often. To say I'm glad you're back is definitely an understatement.

I read your blog often, and find the food references very interesting. It was my assumption that most individuals initiate a blog for themselves - - not to expect others to provide strokes ... It's your blog - do it your way. To set an expectation of your readers seems self centered. It's not always about you.

Tommy I am so glad you are staying. What great news for a dreaded Monday for me. I promise to respond every once in a while so you know we are out there. Thanks and welcome back!
