Um...OK. Yep. Finally here. Cyberspace. It isn't quite what I had expected, at least not yet. I had a friend encourage me to start a blog about a year ago (shout out to you, Chex!). But I am not the most computer literate person, and it has taken me well over 12 months to finally show up here in blog world. Now that I am here, I am just not real sure what exactly to do. Or say. I guess it would be "say", right? I mean write. Yes, write.
I had all these grand visions of the words just flowing forth - my great manifestos and deep thoughts, mixed in with a few cute stories of the boys. Thousands of people checking my blog daily to see what wisdom and wit I would throw out at the world each morning. But now that I am actually HERE... I am feeling a little...intimidated. You know, don't want to say too much and give away lots of personal information, certainly don't want to post anything that would offend my mother if she ever figured out the internet, and realizing that today, at least, I got nothin' juicy and life changing for you.
I know I could introduce myself better, but really - what do you say out here to millions? There are lots of "things" about me. The main ones are that I am a Christian, I am married to a fabulous guy, I have two sons that are both joys and delights to my life, and I stay at home with them as my occupation. I have some hobbies - I like photography, I enjoy running (most days), and I absolutely love and adore the sport of football. (American football...in case anyone thinks I mean soccer. Oh my gosh, there could be people from other COUNTRIES reading this??? Whoa - freaking a bit here...)
I decided to start a blog for a couple of reason. 1. I love to write. I write all kinds of stuff when I get a chance. I am not your poet kind of writer. No. Nothing that beautiful. I write little devotionals sometimes when I read something from the Bible and it really strikes me. Maybe I will post some sometime. I would love to write a Bible Study someday. Wouldn't mind writing a book either. Not sure what kind. Oh, yeah. Why I am blogging. Right. 2. I have thoughts on different topics that I would like to record somewhere. Not sure cyberspace is the BEST choice for someone who doesn't like conflict (that means if you don't agree with what I am posting I would prefer you not comment and make me cry), but it was free. 3. I think it is a good exercise for me to put my thoughts out "there". Sometimes I tend to keep my thoughts to myself possibly more than I should . So maybe this is some cheap (did I mention free?) therapy for me.
Well, I hate to leave you hanging (oh, and I know this is just the most tantalizing literature you have read in months...) but I am going to stop now before I get too afraid and delete the whole entry.
Before I go, a brief disclaimer. I have no idea what this is going to really look like. There are some things I really want to post about - just random things like why I love football, why I got my nose pierced (yeah, you'll be back for that one won't you?), and how I feel about life as a stay-at-home-mom. But I also may post just about my day. What we did. Who said what. So if you are expecting some great blog with profound revelations and thought provoking banter (kind of like I was before I started typing), you might be a little disappointed. But if you can adjust your expectations like I have had to adjust mine, maybe you'll be back to check things out again. Just bear with me. Work in progress here.
Have a great day!
