It’s confession time.
I have more than one dilemma concerning my blog. I think it’s time that I reveal them.
Four years ago, I started this blog because a friend of mine (whom we will call Melissa–why you ask? because her name is Melissa) had started a blog and introduced me to this cool phenomenon. I started reading hers and her brother’s. Through about a bazillion comments on Melissa’s blog, Rob–her brother, helped me to start my own on Blogger (at the time Blogspot).
The reason I started it?
Okay, so let’s be completely honest.
It’s really ridiculous!
My sister-in-law, Ruhama, had also started reading Melissa’s blog and was toying with the idea of starting her own as well.
In my competative spirit, I thought, “I want to start one FIRST!” (I know! I know! How juvenile! She doesn’t even know this. And she reads my dorky posts, so Ruhama, there you have it! tee hee! *sheepish grin* )
Why did I want to be first? I wanted to have done it longer so that I could be the expert. I wanted to feel smart. I wanted to have someone come to ME for advice. But as it is, she knows WAY more than I do. How dorky and silly of me!
So the purpose of my blog was to beat Ruhama and now I am going to Ruhama for help. That didn’t work out the way I planned (although in all fairness, I have NO problem with this).
I think I am funny! But I will go days and days, even weeks (oh, the humanity!) and not post a single funny thing! How can this be? I must not be as funny as I think I am. So when I do post something funny, PLEASE notice and praise me up and down for being funny!
I have started baby-sitting for my friend 2-3 days each week. Her kids are great! Really, I don’t think I could ask for a better couple of kids to watch. But with watching them, I realize that I don’t have a whole lot of “me” time. A whole day will go by without me even looking at my computer! (I know! GASP!)
I cannot take a very good picture. No, let me rephrase, I can take a pretty good picture. I can’t amazing pictures. Here is the snow that just fell this weekend, but if I were a true photographer, I would have been able to capture it oh so beautifully. As it is, you have Wordgirl, Princess Pea, and Dash in their snow gear, standing by the snow
I. Am. So. AMAZING! that it takes my breath away.
Here’s my attempt to show you what they like to do inside when it snows.
I know you are jealous of my show stopping techniques! But let me reassure you that this photo was taken after I gave up the fight to have them recreate their ring of dancing! They just want to pose, so I convinced them to spin with Wordgirl. And yet even the table (which was NOT spinning) was blurry. It has not to do with their movement! It has all to do with my inability to hold my camera still.
Dilemma 5: The metrodome collapsed. And I got nothing to say about it except that I live less than 10 miles away from it.
I will be attacking these dilemmas one at a time beginning with Dilemma 5 and the metrodome.
