So, I'm starting anew, and afresh (not sure if that's really a word) but you get the idea. I'd just like a place to come and recount the days, or weeks events, lest they be forgotten. My kids really do say, and do, the darndest (that's about as profane as this blog will get) things and I never take the time to write them down on paper, so I can have something to look back on, to laugh and cry over, once they all leave the nest to begin their own lives. Which probably won't be happening for, oh, another 18 years or so.
I don't know all the neat computer dynamics of posting links and pictures, but hopefully I'll learn as I go along. I have no idea if there is book of "Blog Etiquette" that I am supposed to follow, so forgive me, if I commit a serious faux pas in this regard.
Is this where I'm supposed to introduce myself to give you all a little insight into where my writing perspective comes from? Well, here goes.....I just turned 3-0 (that still seems so strange to say out loud). I have been married to my husband, David, for 8 years. We have three children....Reese, our oldest daughter, who will turn 4 this Fall, Drue, our second daughter, who will turn 2 this Fall, and Tate, our son, who was born this past May. I work 2 days a week at a nursing home in the Admissions department.
I'm a Christian (oh, I suppose that probably should have been at the beginning of my list of descriptors). I admire these Proverbs 31 type women I encounter. I, myself, unfortunately, am more like the Proverbs 27 type woman....
Ok, well, maybe I'm not that bad, but I definitely have room for improvement in the "wife of noble character" role.
"A quarrelsome wife is like a constant dripping on a rainy day; restraining her is like restraining the wind or grasping oil with the hand." Proverbs 27:15-16
So, that's me in a nutshell. Now if you happen to read any future posts (hopefully I'll publish more than one this year), you'll have a better understanding of where I'm coming from.
