The competition continues ...

I hope you're all enjoying your jam. I've made three jars already.*

The Pittman family is strangely un-wired this weekend, with several of us out of town and lacking access to life support.** As you may have heard (a lot) if you are a frequent CBTBD reader, my mother and our friend Lea are embroiled in an "Every day in May" blogging competition, which is probably why I got a call from Mom a couple of hours ago. We chatted for a moment before her real purpose became evident. "I can't get online at this hotel without paying a $25.00 charge!" she said. "Is there ANY WAY you could post on my blog?"

This really shouldn't have surprised me; the women in our family are what competitive wants to be when it grows up. Let's just say I don't advise getting between them and a high score on Taboo or Scattergories. Winning may feel good, but is it worth the cost?

I too am out of town and without reliable Internet, and my little signal bars are starting to flicker, so I should call it a night. This may not be much of a post, but it counts. Sorry, Lea.

Now back to your regularly scheduled programming.

Thanks, Shepherd. Your whole family cracks me up!

What do you get for helping your mom win this competition? ;)

MOM is competitive? HA. I am by far the most competitive woman in our family.
Also, Shepherd, CBTBD made me think of the old days: "What's a tee-cee-dee-cee?"
