Nothing like diving right in...a month later

I have been a very bad blogger of late. Oh I have been reading my favourites, commenting on my faves, convinced my sister in Seoul to start hers oh and woefully neglected mine. It is my sincere promise to get this going for real this week.

Wish me luck!

Blog Two

So I'm no techie. I tried to make some minor changes on my first post which for some reason don't show up on the first page but do show up if you click on the Archives section of the posts. Oh well. Not really important just tidying up some of my thoughts.

OK. I am completely and utterly overwhelmed by this new world I have entered here at Blogger. There are so many great blogs I want to read and am constantly impressed by my two favourites - Catherine Newman's and Bub and Pie (a fellow Canadian!) While I know I will never have a blog like Bub and Pie for example all I need for mine is my life and my kids - nothing more nothing less.

The writing around here is top notch and proves to me that this truly is a wonderful way to connect with other intelligent like-minded people. The sheer number of Blogs is staggering in a good way and I hope to eventually read them all. I can see how this becomes a happy addiction.

Girls are good this morning and our week watching Rachel continues. Calista is loving this and no doubt next week I will answer the question "Where's Rachel?" many times. Currently, they are playing dress-up beside me so a few more minutes for me to indulge.

I think it is appropriate at the beginning of my blog to jot down some random facts about the girls so I can start this journey of preserving our history. It is so fleeting and endless all at the same time. My next post will be just that and hopefully a photo or two.

All for now.

Blog One

Wow. My very first blog posting ever! My how times have changed-my highschool typing teacher would be so proud! I barely passed at (maybe) 52% because my pinkie was not strong enough to key on our manual typewriters. This blog is simply for me to keep a living diary of everything wonderful and not so wonderful in our family. I was inspired by Catherine and have followed her since her first entry on Baby Center.

This will be my attempt at documenting our life.

For my sister Amy in South Korea a chance to keep track of us in a way only random rantings can. I promise to "fix up my blog" as soon as I can. Stay tuned.
