It takes me back to my roots.
Some of you may know that I was an English major. And mostly because I loved to read. Well, at least that is why I stayed with it. I went into it because of writing. My senior year of High School I was the yearbook editor, on the literary magazine staff and in AP English. I did A LOT of writing that year. And I loved it. And I was pretty good at it, if I do say so myself. So when I went to college it only seemed right to stick with it. And I did. To this day I would rather write a paper than take a test. Anytime. In college I got to read books and then write papers on them. Maybe not easy, but really, right up my alley.
And then I had kids. And all writing stopped. I am terrible at keeping a journal. I really am. I pull it out, seriously, every six months. I have always been like that.
Then, one wonderful day my lovely friend Ashlyn introduced me to the world of blogging. And for the first 100 posts or so I stuck to the whole family blog genre: pictures, funny things that kids say, updates on my family. And then, I discovered that I really liked to write about my family. I really liked to embellish the horrifying mommy stories and make them more dramatic and a bit more funny. And after a while I decided I needed a whole new blog. I still have the family blog and it still is mostly pictures of my kids and funny things that they say but for the real me, you have to come over here. This is where it all hangs out. Sometimes funny, sometimes sarcastic. Sometimes totally and completely random. But it gives me a few minutes of sanity on an almost daily basis in my crazy, crazy screaming baby world.
And I love it. So, hopefully I will be able to keep up with it. Problem: I'm already starting to run out of things to say. So, if you want to help me out, what do you want to hear about? What inspires you?
