Between traipsing across the country, working, lack of internet, and then not having my computer because I didn’t want to travel with it, I haven’t been posting, and I miss that. I miss doing the Word of the Day, and the Monthly poem. I just wanted everyone to know this, with any luck, I start that up again very soon.
I’m sure most of you have noticed that the Word of the Day post hasn’t been up so far this week. My Internet is down due to a snow storm, as soon as it’s up, I’ll be back to posting! Also have a few other posts to add as well, including A Few Things I’ve Learned About Dating By Not Dating, and So you want to be a twitter Pro… Yeah, Me Too!
How is the week going for all of you bloggers and readers? Feels strange for me with no internet and not going to work on Monday!

As I go through my dictionary I’ve found a few words that I didn’t know existed. I don’t think they have much place in the word of the day posts, because I know what the original word for them means. Even if they don’t have a place here most days, I wanted to share them with you and ask if there are any words you have come across that you didn’t know existed, but you know the meaning of their original words?
