I am not really sure why I am doing this... I already have blogs at myspace and facebook (the latter a meager little thing with only 3 or 4 posts), plus a xanga that I abandoned long ago (they're really basically all the same blogs, just copied for different audiences; a brother here, a sister there, a couple friends over that way...). I even considered transferring all my old blogs over here, and then I opted against it. I'm way too lazy for that crap.

I suppose, perhaps, the reason why I'm doing this is pretty simple. Sometimes people join your audience that you don't feel like airing all your dirty laundry in front of... like your mother. Who wants to bitch about their mother when she's going to be reading their blog? I'm pushing 30 man, I don't need my every move being monitored by my mother. Not that she necessarily would, thats just an example. Yes, she is on my myspace and facebook friend lists. I really do love my mother. Really. Even when she drives me a little batty.

Isn't this supposed to be one of those introductory posts? Hi! This is me and this is my life! Yay! Something like that, right? Well... as my profile states quite clearly I am a wife and mother. It's a full time job. My husband is a soldier--he's amazing. I couldn't ask for better. We have three daughters, charming little ladies to be sure. My family is just about the only thing I am well versed in; that is, I'm an amateur at everything else I try. I am a terrible artist, but sometimes I paint. I'm sort of a fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants seamstress, but I sew. I cannot sing or play a musical instrument--instead I lipsync to my iPod, even singing along is dangerous to my listeners. I love photography, but I'm scraping the bottom of the barrel as far as talent goes--on this, however, I am actually trying to raise myself to maybe lower-mid barrel. I'm actually a pretty good cook. I'm also terrible about these intro things because I'm sure someone else will say "Oh but you're great at this!"

Anyway, this is going to be a catalog of my random thoughts, self-reflection, trials, errors, craft and photography projects, and whatever the heck else I come up with. I don't expect blog-famedom, I'm pretty sure I'm not anyone's idea of an entertaining blogger. I'm just a woman who needs a space. This is my space.
