My First Post

Not sure how to start a blog!  :-)  But since I've been knocking the idea around for a while, I probably should just do it.  Maybe I should tell you a bit about myself?

I am 33 years old and have been married for 13 years to a man I went to sixth grade with.  I have four children, 3 girls and a boy.  I am a Latter-day Saint.  I run and do yoga.  I drink Celestial Seasonings teas.  I knit.  I love old movies.  Christmas is my favorite time of year.  I love spinach and chard and yellow squash - hated them as a kid.  I hate cleaning. I drive my van like it's a truck.  Being diagnosed lactose intolerant was one of the biggest disappointments in my life (perspective, right?).  I've been seeing a GI doc for months trying to figure out what else is wrong with my intestines.  I joined the Americorps when I was nineteen.  I grew up a couple of miles from the ocean.  I love wind.  I have curly hair.  We raise chickens and apples.  We used to have rabbits and guineas and milk goats.  I can't decide whether I should go back to school or not.  I like the idea of naps, but I always feel terrible after one.  I love oatmeal.  I just began couponing to stretch my schoolteacher husband's salary.  We have two cats: Tom and Jerry.  I have weight management problems.  I eat when I am stressed - I'm always stressed.  I am a type A overachiever (but I don't like to clean?).  I love Whole Foods even though it's expensive.  I haunt antique stores and living history museums.  I have glasses.  I ran my first 5K last week.  I hate being wet.  And I always take more books out of the library than I could possibly read.

Well, that's a start.

I'm reading Stormy Weather by Paulette Jiles.

And tonight we're eating fresh trout (caught today by husband and kids), roasted potatoes and carrots and green salad.

I think those are things I like on others' blogs - the tidbits, the food, the activities - etc.  I like the pictures, too, but I am NOT a techy...  soon?
