Okay, so I am trying to start a blog. So far it has taken me about 4 months just to get this thing started. I am a really bad journal writer and I'm not a "scrapbooker" at all. I thought this might be a nice way to keep in touch with family and keep a little family history to look back on as well. Anyway, I hope I can figure this thing out without crying, screaming or swearing. I've relied on my "computer men" - (Dad, brothers, husband...) for so long that my brain has atrophied. Did I spell that right? Is there a spell checker on this thing? AH HAH! There it is... see, I can do this. Hey, I can write in different colors. I think maybe I'm gifted. Well, if this actually shows up on the blog, I'm going to go have a nap. I totally deserve one... and maybe a cookie, too.
