The Happy Dance — Fandango’s Friday Flashback


Weighed in downward trend
Program buddie's hands definite lend
Weight loss journey 'yes' difficult
Bathroom scale often absolute insult
Precise leaders' advice 
Certain to self repeat least twice
Weight loss recipe appearance easy
First time trial recipes stomach bit queasy
Months down transformation path program fine
Management left two Butterballs behind
Sudden plateau arrival on scene
Dieting nosedive panic mode unforeseen
Bored, tired battle of bulge distraught
Refusal emotions be naught
Younger age easier accomplish goal
Disallow older factor excuse role
Proper attire off to local gym
Walk in thankful lights dim
Scan room lots remember when
More reason discouragement not win
Ambition, sacrifice creation dieter's paradise
Destination invite ahead weight loss small price
Aspiration 'Countdown Happy Dance' success
Appearance function show smaller size dress.

Thoughts on IMO a Literary Smorgasbord

Sudden start of my good faith blogging journey dismay:

Morning reader overflowing with prompts not a real problem since I pick and choose from them. 

Those special awards to same favorites – yes = bothersome. 

My follower count now at ‘304’ are all organic – earned them – didn’t purchase any. 

If each person who liked a post of mine the past two years had selected to follow me the count would have been in the thousands.

I try hard not to be a perfectionist – Type A personality. 

What I find a bit disappointing is what I consider to be a  clique – those who somehow
share comments with certain bloggers while a like or a Thank you is sufficient for others. 

I understand we reside in a busy world – a world where technology seems to have created more work (especially paperwork) rather than less. 

As I read numerous blogs I’ve noticed many writers who submit articles are married or young adults with less responsibilities.

No idea if anyone who reads this has ever felt nauseous at the sight of another post
from the same person. I sure wish I was typing this on the cell phone – could use the
proper emoji for that feeling.

A surprise to me is when I read interesting well-written posts by bloggers with only a handful of  followers, few or no likes and void of comments. I take a few moments of precious time to leave a nice comment and in return I’ve received some beautiful replies.

At this time I’m a bit uncertain of what lies ahead for my future in blogosphere.

I won’t apologize for my persona – a fairly private person who pens her pain thru
poems while leaving out the sordid details. 

If I disappear for a period of time (on hiatus) I’ll be catching up on my reading
and craft projects.

Although I enjoy writing I’m finding perhaps it comes with a price I can’t afford to pay.

Sad to admit: “This one person in charge of everything has become a wee bit tired of late.” 

Wow! I think I just wrote my first ever vent with regard to blogging.
