I Just Can't Apologize For This...

No. It's not about Obamacare

I swear. 

It IS about me being a horrible blog buddy this week. 

I haven't been posting, I haven't been commenting near as much as I should be, and I haven't been reading all of you. 

That's my bad, but you won't get an I'm sorry out of me. 

"Why? Why won't you apologize you fat lazy bastard? You come around here with your funny and droll comments, get all my readers hooked on them, and then just disappear?! I won't tolerate it! I am going to cut your blogs throat!" 

Calm down, killer. You want to know why?

Well, because of this: 


And this:


And this:



That's right, that's my niece, Briley Ann. The absolute most cutest baby ever, and yes, that includes your baby. And your damn cat. Your cat doesn't count. It's not cute. It's sad. And you're sad. 

So anyway, I won't apologize. 

However, I will say thank you. 

Thank you for your prayers, your good thoughts, your well wishes, all of it. Because of your support and the support of SO many people, Briley came through surgery like a champ, and she's going to wind up getting to go home earlier than expected. Instead of 4 weeks in the hospital, they think it will just be a week if she will "latch." 

That's nipple talk. 

Yeah. I still threw a little TMI Thursday action at you. 

I'll be back with an official giveaway post tomorrow, and you're gonna love me for it. Especially if you love light. 

Now excuse me, I have to show everyone in the school these pictures.

  7. You should be ashamed of yourself..using a baby..A BABY...as an excuse not to blog.

    The only time you should use a baby as an excuse for anything is that you needed to rush it to the hospital because it was really really sick and that's why, officer, you're driving while intoxicated.

  17. I have missed you Travis! your niece is adoreable! congrats!

  18. No apology or excuse necessary (except for the Duke cap). One look at that little lady is enough to forgive you anything (except for wearing the Duke cap.) Enjoy her all you can, Travis. You can get back to the foolishness when she is home and things are back to normal. But now that you have the yearn for one yourself, you may still not have time to blog. Just saying…

  19. Completely justified. We miss you, but we'll be here when you get back :)

  21. You're excused, but only because that's one damn cute baby. ;) I'm so glad to hear she came through it all so well.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Shameless to hide behind a baby! But we forgive you cause she's adorable. I will try to forgive the cat remark but it won't be easy...really enjoyed the post about the biggest loser tryout. You are far too svelte for that crowd....

  23. She is a doll and happy she is doing better!

  24. I haven't been around much this week, either, but my excuse is some sour stomach and some loose stool.

    So...yeah...

    Anyway. Um. Prayers and such? Glad she is doing better than expected!

  26. Now you have to answer to Big Boy as he is worried about all the "Oohs" and "Aahs" and general clucky cooing I am doing over here at my desk.

    Lucky I am an old bat and cannot jump on the conception bandwagon quite so agilely as I once could have!

    She is beutiful, and the best reason in the world to be away from us obsessive Travisionals.

    One more time before he comes over to slap me one...

    AWWWWWWWWWWWWW!

    (and yes, I was joking)
