A Whole New Me: Part 1

Okay, it's been so long since I last posted that the web address for the blog didn't even come up in my address bar when I started typing.  When I tried to sign in, the working address (that's what I'm calling the thing that happens after you hit "enter" and everything in the address bar gets all crazy until you actually end up on the page for which you're looking) actually had the words 'passive' and 'blogger' right next to each other.  Seriously, it could have just said 'searching for never post anything so we have to dig into the depths of the Internets (yes, Internets) to find your crappy'  But, I guess it wouldn't have been passive-aggressive if it did that.  Moving on...

I've commented to friends lately that I miss blogging but I find that I'm not putting the time into my schedule to actually do it.  I think I've figured out why.  I don't really have any direction with this blog ~ it's my 'fun blog,' not my family blog (don't take that the wrong way - I don't make the time to write/update that one, either!), so I never really wanted to make it specific to anything.  I wanted to be able to write whatever my mind was thinking about that day.  It turns out that either 1) I don't think very much, or 2) I just don't take time to write what I think.

Those two points said, I'm asking you to stick with me for a few more days as I develop the rest of this story for you.  Wait - what?  Here's the deal.  One of my awesome sisters-in-law is (among other things) an English teacher and a kick-ass blogger.  She updates her family blog regularly (read: usually daily), has a regular post that she links up to What I Wore Wednesday on her second blog, and is also doing Project365 again this year.   She posts a photo each day of the year to remember her day and since she's already completed it once, she is photographing things that make her 'happy' this year.  (I've tried Project365 four different years and I've never made it all the way to the end.)   ANYWAY... she's doing a neat post series about her journey to health and fitness right now and I decided that she had a great idea - so I stole it!  Nope, I'm not going to write about fitness.  All of that was a very long way of telling you just how awesome I think Emily is (and how very, very different we are!! HA!) and that this post is only PART 1 in my journey to a new place in my life.

Come back tomorrow for Part 2!

  1. I can't wait!! I'm so glad you are blogging again. Let's all work to keep each other accountable, OK? Oh- and direction is overrated. Seriously- keep it random- that keeps it awesome! You write about YOU and YOU are good. Oh- and I'm still completely in love with this background. And- random side note" just saw another preview for Arriety...what the heck is Disney thinking?! The.end.
