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?
