My sweet friend, Farmgirlcyn, came over about a month ago to show me the blogging ropes and help me get set up, which I found to be pretty simple and straight forward. But then came the part where I actually have to blog. That part has NOT been so easy. Well, I guess after a month it's time I actually "type" some life into it.
I tend to be a perfectionist and my own worst critic, so maybe that's the reason it's taken me so long to get going. In my own defense it has been quite a busy couple of months. I did, at least, write a bit about that in the "about me" section.
But now it's summer break! Woo-hoo! No, I don't get the summer off, but it's that time of year that's a little more relaxed. No hectic morning rush getting the kids out the door, no car pooling to school or school events, no homework woes late into the evening. And although I'm sure I will miss the routine by the end of the summer, I am enjoying the extra time with the kids and the extra hours of daylight!
I'm looking forward to getting more comfortable with writing again. It's something I guess I laid down several years ago along with my love for creating things. It's time to pick it back up again and share my Etsy adventures, crafting projects and thrift store findings.
So that's one reason I'm here. The other? Well, I have a husband, 13 and 17 yr. old daughters, a 10 yr. old son, a sweet (but smelly) beagle that has a wheat allergy and countless irrational fears, a 5 yr. old cat with enough personality for 10 cats and an 8 wk. old kitten with enough energy for 20! What's not to write about? There's always something hillarious going on around here (and sometimes not so hillarious). Bottom line: These are the best days of my life. Why not share them?
