Well, here I am. I'm starting this blog in the hopes of plodding through my life story for my children. I have always known there was a great need to write our family history down...to share the stories of their childhood with them.
And, I know that there is a book in me yet to be written. Unfortunately, with the recent crash of our harddrive, much of what I have recorded is gone forever. So, I start again.
You never know what life will deliver to you; it all happens so fast, and unexpected things happen all the time. Much to my chargrin, when 40 arrived, time didn't slow down, and I didn't start to go backward in years, so hopefully, I will get some of our life down where it belongs.
I will have to fight for time to "blog" our lives...with a near-teenager who believes that she needs to be connected to MSN 24/7 "just in case" someone logs on, an almost 9-year old that has discovered pbskids.org, and lots of fun games there, and a husband that needs to check the scores and read the daily newspaper online, I often find myself last in line for time on the computer, much like I find myself last in line for many things!
At the very best, this blog will be stories my children will cherish, and stories of the incredible life blessings I have been given. At the very worst, it will be ramblings...thoughts, feelings, opinions that perhaps only I care about!
And maybe, just maybe, when all is said and done, I'll be able to pick it apart enough to finally get that book...
