it's about time

Well, I've finally done it. I've joined the world of blogging. I've long been a fan of blogs, but I've never taken the plunge myself. Writing is bittersweet for me. With a degree in Journalism, one would assume I enjoy writing, and I do. It's just that there's a lot of pressure that comes with that joy. First, I can not spell worth a darn. Second, I care way to much about what people think of me. So when I write, I'm always wondering how I'm being perceived. So by publishing my thoughts on this world wide web I am facing my fears. I will write and not care what people might think...gasp!! That is in theory of course.
No really, I'm starting this blog as a sort of journal for myself and for others who might care what happens in my home (at least I hope my mom will read it). A traditional "journal" hasn't been working well for me. If I sat on my comfy couch right now with a journal and pen I have no doubt I would fall asleep. So I'm better off sitting at an uncomfortable desk with plenty of distractions. I am married with 2 small boys and another baby on the way....sleep is my greatest temptation right now. So here goes nothin'...

I am really looking forward to learning more about you and your amazing family. Thanks for the invitation to read all of your thoughts and who knows, maybe it will inspire me to start a blog of my own! *gasp*

You know I always love to hear what you have to say, and most of the time get it first hand, but nevertheless its always worth hearing (even though you are my younger sister!!)

Well, you bet I'll read it! Kind of like sneaking in to your bedroom 10 years ago and reading your diary. Really,I don't think you had one and I don't think I did that!!! But now I have permission. Be sure and make it juicy:):):) What you need to do for me is send me a reminder when you post something new...I'm not a blog checker normally....but I don't want to miss out. Everyone needs to remember that Linds' birthday is Jan 31st!!!! lOve you Momma
