(~a bid for the goodwill of readers)
Well, well, well. My very own blog. This will take some getting used to, but bear with me. Once I'm out of my shell, I think I'm a lot of fun. I'm an avid journal keeper (I realize this is not the aforementioned 'fun' part of me.) I have been since I was 4 years old. I find journal writing to be very cathartic, and much cheaper than therapy. I am honest in my writing, but I also try to keep in mind that [one of] the aims in keeping a journal is for my children and grandchildren to one day read. I'm sure I censor. I wonder how this blog will come out. I guess I'll just let it.
I've been toying with the idea of having a blog for some time now. When I mentioned the idea to my husband he thought it was a great idea. He thinks I want to talk too much. I think he wishes it wasn't all in his direction. Then my best friend, Luisa, emailed me and pretty much commanded me to start a blog, and, well, I usually listen to her. Even she acknowledged that I "needed an outlet". So, I asked my husband what I should call my blog. His very first suggestion was "Little Miss Know-it-All". Very funny. (Is that taken?) I had a few Latin ideas with really cool symbolism, but he just turned to me and said, "And you're not a nerd HOW?" Well, only he can say that to me. He gets paid to be a nerd on TV. When a commercial or a TV show needs a nerd, they specifically request him. In fact, he's got a commercial running right now for McDonald's, in which he was cast as the necessary nerd. But even the director said he was "too nerdy". Yikes. I think he's adorable, and if being a nerd makes me fit closer to him, then give me a pocket protector and a protractor and let me tape up my glasses! I think I make "nerd" look really good.
Let the fun begin!
