Maggie's Memos: Yeah, We're Still Here...

Ahem.  Hi there.  Don't know if you remember me, but I'm Maggie.  You know, that doll that used to actually post with some sort of regularity on this blog?  Yeah, it's been a pretty rotten month.

For one thing, the whole theory that having a laptop would make it easier to post was a total joke.  I mean, sure, it's nice to have our own computer and all, but it keeps on having "connectivity issues", as Mama calls it.  We keep losing our Internet access in the back bedroom, so then we have to wait until it's all clear to come out to the living room and figure out what on earth is going on.

To be honest, you haven't missed much.  Mama has been typing like a crazy lady for her "Lala-Whatever Month" thing.  We've been kind of on the back burner for a while.  Whatever, Mama.  We're just the most important dolls in the house, the ones who got you started on your whole collection, but no biggie.  We don't mind being neglected.

Anyway, enough of that or Tess will scold me. :}  I'm posting today because we just found out that there's going to be major upheaval in our little world.  Mama has been complaining recently that having all of our rooms stacked up on top of each other isn't very convenient for her.  If she thinks that, she should try LIVING in the top room!!  Good thing I'm not scared of heights!

Because of this "issue", there's going to be some major rearranging going on (Mama thrives on rearranging, as you guys have all probably figured out by now).  I guess one of the rooms will be moved over to the top of the big dresser next to us, and there's some sort of little dresser thing going underneath the rooms that will make the bottom room higher.  I think it sounds confusing and messy, but Mama is all excited about it.

So that's about the sum of all of the excitement that's happened around here.  We've pretty much been keeping to ourselves while Mama runs around like a maniac, a little blogging here, a little eBay there, some art class here...you get the picture.

And that brings me to another update.  Tess and I have discussed it, and we feel like we need to be honest about our expectations for this blog.  It's obvious that we can't keep up with posting as frequently as we used to in the past.  We've decided that we're going to try to commit to two "big" posts a month (more involved posts with pictures and stories and stuff).  We'll try to pop in with a "words only" post every once in a while, too.  But seriously, it's just gotten to the point where we're totally stressed out because we're so behind.  So don't worry, we're not quitting like Belle (it's about time she ran out of mushy things to say, if you ask me), but we are going to slow things down a bit.  Really, it's not going to be all that much different from what it's been, except now you'll have more realistic expectations of what will actually happen here. :}

By the way, I know we still haven't done our "Blogoversary" giveaway.  We're hoping to get that going this month and just call it something different. ;)  Thanks for your patience.

I guess that's about all for now.  We'll talk to you guys again soonish. ;)

I so hope y'all don't leave too! I don't need BOTH of my favorite doll written blogs gone! (The other I'm talking about is Belle, if you couldn't tell.)

I think we're all on the same schedule! I check like twice a month (stupid school!) and there's a new post!

Hi CrazyCavy! Nope, we're not planning on leaving anytime soon. We just have to kind of adjust our expectations. ;)
