Preface- My grammar/english skills stink. If you proceed and read anything I type, be prepared to read it like it is- errors and all. Without correcting me. It is what it is and I make no excuses, and would prefer not to hear yours :) (Said in the most loving way with a smile on my face and no intent to offend.)
My kids have blogs, so do a lot of my friends. My thoughts were, "That's fun for them but what do *I* need a blog for?"
Well- I decided my reason is so that I realize I do "have a life". Aside from the fact that my sil- Kyle set it up for me, and Alli & Kyle think it will be *fun*, hum.
My friend Mary keeps hers so she can see how much she actually does get done. That appeals to me.
Being very close to the empty nest part of my life, I struggle with purpose. Most Moms go through this at some point or another, its just my turn. So I'd like to keep track of what I actually do with the time I used to spend changing diapers, watching practices & games, playing taxi driver, home room mom, cooking , cleaning, babysitting, "Mom I need..." and doing 10 loads of laundry a week.
This may workout great, or it may sit week after week with the same exact post. But as usual, I jump in with both feet- not usually testing the water first.
There you have it- my first official "jump".
