Today is a year from when I started this blog. I guess I have Chris over at the The Big Yellow House to thank for encouraging me to start this. She just recently celebrated the same anniversary a few days ago. I remember having recently discovered the multitude of blogs out there and talking about it in a TOK chat. Chris told us about how she started one and it jump started my desire to start.
Writing I sometimes feel like I'm being deceptive. Not that I lie about things that happen. I just tend to not share ALL the information. (could you imagine how lengthy my posts would be if I did! yikes!) Some people think I share TOO much though. Part of the reason is to protect people's idenities (those that aren't members of my household that is) and privacy...I hope I've done a good job of that. It's a constant worry. Other reasons is that I'm just not comfy sharing some parts of my life, mostly the religious side. I know I've shown glimpses of it here or there but to me it's a very personal thing. I guess some would say I'm not doing my Godly duty by being a mouthpiece for my beliefs. I tend to think that actions speak louder then words. Unfortunately in a blog actions can't be seen too readily. It's just not a direction that this thing ever took and it seems weird to change directions at this time. I'm not saying it won't ever happen...I just don't see it happening in the future.
It's been a great thing for me to have a place to come to and let things out...whether anyone else reads/understands it or not. While writing I think about the past. Unexpectedly I find myself thinking more about the future though. How things will be different once the baby is born. How as the kids grow up and move onto better things (like grandkids! but not in the too near future of course), my house will be host to even more craziness. How hopefully in the near future I can report how much better I feel because of eating well and exercising regularly. I'll probably still be more ambitious in my mind then I really am. Hopefully there will be SOME improvement in that area. I certainly don't want to stay the same and hope to grow right along with the kids.
To all those out there that have followed along on my long winded journey and offered support....THANK YOU! It means a lot to me to know that there are others that think about and care what happens in my little corner of the world.
Here's to many many more years of musings, ramblings and all around blathering! (add in vents and whining too lol) Not only from me but from all those that I visit and have come to care about online as well.
