Here goes nothin'

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".


  1. Alright you are officially a Blogger! How does it feel? :)

  2. And it was great! You were/are a great mom too! Always taking us to practice, showing up for boring tennis and swim meets, and making sure we did have what we needed, and wanted most of the time. Thanks Mom! I'm excited to read and see pictures of what you do!

  3. Yay! I'm so excited that you're going to start blogging! I love to hear all about your day and all the crafty things you do! Keep it up! :) Love you!

  4. that was alli that commented, not Marie

  5. BORING swim meets?! No such thing, tennis maybe... but swim meets?! Well, maybe Steven's were boring, but not mine :)

  6. I'll read your blog! :) This is Jodie, Kyle's favorite sister in law. Even if he won't admit it. :)

  7. Way to go Kathy!! I'm glad I gave you a little inspiration!
