Homemade Potato Chips Are More Difficult to Make Than I Expected

I am so behind on the blog reading and the blog commenting and the blog posting and other blog what-have-yous.  Thank you, follies, for your comments on how to deal with Mr. Andy Griffith and on other posts.  Apologies if I haven't responded to them (hard enough to do on Blogger, anyway...). I do have some topics like I'd like to discuss on the blog, but with how busy work is getting and the attention to detail those posts would require, I just can't bring myself to focus on them at all.  Not to mention, the weather is getting wonderful so I'm spending less time around my computer and more time outside.  Good for me...not so good for the blog.

Since the weather is perking up around here, so the shorts and minis have come out of the closet.  On Saturday I wore a wonderful, floral dress to a luncheon.  Felt a little early in the season for such a short dress, but it was 70+ degrees outside! I couldn't resist!

In other news, I haven't yet been in to Panera to deal with Mr. Andy Griffith.  I know I should just nip this in the bud while it's still relevant, but I can't justify buying coffee just to deal with him when I can't afford a cuppa right now.  I sort of went over budget his month and....well, I really need to be making coffee at home for a while.  So.  I still don't know how that's going to end up.  Maybe if I give him a few days and then deal with that will drive the message home more?

I've also been toying with the idea of making this more of a personal blog than just a dating blog.  For one, my dating life isn't moving forward at the moment, and I'm finally okay with that.  I think a dating detox where I just don't focus on dating is a good thing right now.  But that doesn't do much for a dating blog.  I've found that I really love blogging, and for the most part I'm good at keeping up with it, so I don't know that a personal blog is out of the question.  Still toying with that....

I hope the next post will be more interesting for you all.  I'm still alive here, and once work is less busy I hope to have more to post.  Only a few more weeks until the busy season at the office is over!!

And in side news, my new favorite television show is "The Killing", and I wish I could find the original Danish version to check it out.  I think it's genius television, and I'm now convinced that AMC is the best channel ever.  Also, my favorite episode of Family Guy is on tonight ("The Tan Aquatic with Steve Zissou") so it looks like I won't be catching up on some Mad Men tonight.

In yet other news, I'm making homemade potato chips with leftover potato slices from this weekend's family dinner, and I always forget how difficult they are to make.  Half of them burn way too quickly and the other half don't cook at all.  At the crispy ones are tasty!!

Yes yes! Just do a personal blog like me. I thought, at first, of doing a dating blog, or a getting over my husband blog, but that limits one sooo much.
ANd blogging is so much fun.

Thanks Josie! I thought at first that if I kept it to one topic, it would keep me focused on the blog and actually update regularly. I suppose that's true up to a point, and probably not a bad idea for a newbie, but now that I've discovered how much I like it and that I can, in fact, stick with updating it regularly, I feel like it's time to expand a bit beyond the dating realm and make it more about ME rather than about my DATING.

I am ADDICTED to The Killing!! Can you believe last week's episode with the teacher? Holy crap. My best friend and I were freaking out. I personally like to think I'm going to solve the case before everyone else. :)
