I noticed as I was logging in this morning, that this will be my 2,000th post on the mu.nu server. It seems hard to believe even after all these years that I've had that much to babble about.
And speaking of all these years, today is the anniversary of the very beginnings of Curmudgeonry. Back in 2002, my husband starting blathering on about wanting to start a blog. I didn't have a clue what he was talking about, but agreed to go along. He started this lovely and interesting mostly foreign policy blog named after the backpage column he wrote for our college news journal, with me and a few other friends along to write about other stuff. Slowly the friends started dropping off and then my husband moved on from his government job to one that required results and billable hours. And then I was the only one left.
Curmudgeonry moved from blogspot, to another server that disappeared suddenly and I lost about two years of posts, and then on to mu.nu. In seven years, I've had four more children, moved twice, changed religions and done about a million other things (as you can read in the archives of this blog).
I am thankful and grateful for those of you who drop by and leave a comment now and then. I enjoy your company more than I could ever express. Although both quantity and quality have dropped off of late in the blathering process, I hope some day to be able to once again string coherent sentences together and when I do, you all will be the first to know.
