4 Years of Ass Whuppin

This is the 1, 734th post on Alabama Ass Whuppin.

Tomorrow marks the 4 year anniversary of the creation of this blog, but I don't do 'blog' on Saturdays, that's my lord's day.... me being 'the lord'... thus today's Blogiversary Post.

4 years. 1,734 posts.

Whew.

I'm not really sure about year 5 yet. The way time slips by, a year from now I may be posting '5 years of Alabama Ass Whuppin'.... then, again, I might not be. We'll see.

I'm planning on this next year being one of a grand transition in my life. What that entails... I've got a few foggy ideas, but nothing solid. As my friend 'The Mushroom" once stated, "It is always more fun to think about doing stuff, than to actually do stuff".

I think I've lived by that code a bit too long.

It's time to do stuff. Really do stuff.

So, I'm either still blogging per norm, part-time blogging as I entrench myself into an actual 'career that I love' instead of crappy contract 'work' that I don't love, or I'm teaching engrish in some far, far away land, enjoy my first few months of being a permanent ex-pat.

But let's take a look back, shall we.

I don't think the word 'precious' has ever been associated with any of my undertakings until now.
