My First Blog

A blog from a self-confessed dotcom junkie. I love to google things ~ mostly random information. I am capable of spending way too much time sitting at my laptop. It’s even been to Mexico with me twice! I’m not a gamer, but have discovered the joy of watching my favorite shows online whenever I please and without worrying whether or not I got the VCR (yes we still use a cable/DVR in our house) set correctly. My 'puter is my connection to the outside world. I just joined Facebook and am a complete addict. There are also a few message boards I can be found lurking on…and then there’s blogs.

I love me a good blog. I have a long list of blogs that I have been lurking on for over a year now. But I have to admit, I didn’t really understand the point of them for a long time. I know lots of IRL friends who blog. But, truthfully it seemed rather self-absorbed really. I mean, it’s awfully arrogant on anyone’s part to think that the world would want to read about another person’s life, day in and day out.  But then I started reading them and then a few more, and then even more, and now I have a whole slew of blogs I read everyday that are written by women who seem to be just like me…and I get it!!

And then I thought “Hey, I want to do this too!” I do. But can I? I am a little nervous about it, and fear my posts being terribly un-profound and uninspiring and boring (to the readers) and fear regularly coming up with nothing interesting to blog about, at least compared to all the wonderful blogs I follow. Who really cares about what I have to say anyway? Well, here's my goal.

“An unexamined life is not worth living.”

I think (hope and pray!) the “accountability” of this blog will help me stop, examine, appreciate, and enjoy this life God has blessed me with just a little bit more; the live-life-more-purposefully and stop-and-smell-the-roses kind of moments. And I hope to document it here for myself mostly, then for my children, and then for whoever comes along for the ride.

So…here goes! I can't promise to be profound; I can't promise inspiration. Heck, I can't even promise to be very funny. What I can promise is that I'll share the mostly ordinary and occasional extraordinary moments of my life as a wife and mom. I’ll share the good, the bad and the ugly with you. I do pray though, that there will be more good than anything else. Enjoy.
