What happened to me?

A few minutes ago I wrote a very eloquent post about why I haven't posted in more than two years. It was brilliant, funny, touching and possibly Pulitzer worthy. You would have read it and your life would have been changed forever.
You will have to take my word for it because as I was putting the final touches on my brilliant post, it disappeared. Poof, gone, nothing remaining except for one lonely little letter. The letter "c". Of course, that is exactly when blogger decided to auto save, so truly all I was left with was the letter "c". I don’t even remember what word I was typing at the moment. All the emotions that ensued, reminded me why I hadn't tried blogging in such a long time. I just really didn't have the time or energy to deal with the little extra things that go with it all. I was too busy with the little extra things that were happening in real life.
So, am I ready to try again? I honestly don't know. However, I think it's time to either start using the blog or give it up altogether. It felt strange to know it was just sitting there with old family stories on it even though so many new stories had taken place. I'll give it a try for a little while and see where I end up.

Baby, It's Cold Outside!

We have our first snowfall of the season. It's beautiful. A dusting of powdered sugar all over. (We'll see how we feel if this last all week as is being predicted.) The kids are sledding, the dog is trying to catch snowflakes in her mouth and I'm enjoying the peace that seems to come with the snow.

Snow on one of our plum trees.

The view from my kitchen window.

I'm done, Done, DONE!!!!!

Finals are over! I have everything turned in and don't need to think about school until 1/5/2009.

I think this calls for a song and dance!

(I love Kristen Chenoweth!)

Just Say No!

Here we are, the night before my last 2 finals and what am I doing?
Making cupcakes.
Six dozen, homemade, hand decorated cupcakes.
Yes, I said six dozen.
What was I thinking?

I'm almost there...

I'm so close, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. My last final for the term is on Thursday!! Bare with me a few more days and my life should return to "normal". Whatever normal happens to be. Hope you are enjoying your "normal".

Blogs. The internet. The world wide web. What amazing tools we have at our fingertips. I can write anything I want and send it out into cyberspace and someone from half way across the world can read it. How cool is that? When Beth was in Africa, I was able to follow her journey on her blog. It helped me to feel closer to her in some way. I have other blogs I check on a regular basis. Through this amazing tool, I have been able to watch some friends children grow up through stories and pictures. Money and time doesn't allow us the luxury of getting to visit on a regular basis. That's where the internet steps in.
When I first started blogging, it was just for me. It was just something I had wanted to do. I never really thought about other people reading my blog. On the day after Thanksgiving, I logged onto my blog to find a surprise. One of my cousins, Kate, had found my blog and left me a comment. It was kind of exciting. I haven't talked to her in a long time but just by reading my blog, she's all caught up with what is going on in my world now. So, if you have stopped by to read my random thoughts and rants, let me know who you are. Just drop me a comment and let me know who you are. I may have to start watching my language!
