Diving In ...

I can't think of a better way to begin a blog then by admitting a huge personality defect. So here goes. I hate not being good at things. No, really. I know that no one particularly ENJOYS not being good at things, but I am actually a quitter. It's true. A big fat quitter. If I start something that I don't feel like I'm any good at, usually, I'll just quit. No perservering, no learning curve, just plain old quitting. That's how much I hate it when I suck at things. It's why I don't scrapbook, it's why I don't play the flute, it's why I rarely bake and never ever make my own pie crust. That being said, I will quickly segue into how I don't know how to blog. I don't know how to comment on someone else's blog. I don't know how to set-up a blog page so that it is not entirely lame. So .... it is quite possible that blogging is just not for me. I am going to give it the old college try, though. I am not good at keeping a journal, but maybe by blogging I can capture some fun, memorable, or trivial - but amusing parts of my life and the life of my family. So here goes, I'm diving in. Wish me luck!


  1. This is one of the reasons that I never started to blog either. I just figured I'd quit when the going got tough...'cause when the going gets tough, Katie goes back to bed!

  2. I'm reading this in reverse chronological order, so I can say that your entries have been fabulous so far. You totally need to keep it up.

    And, if you want to change your background, there are a few sites out there with free backgrounds that explain what to do. Take a look at my blog to get the address of one such site (I didn't feel like opening a new window to get the exact address--lazy, that's me). :)

  3. Ahem. Don't be mad or freaked out; I found you through Andrea's blog. (blame her) That's the really great thing--you'll find all the people you want to find and a few you'd rather not!! ;) But really, is it alright? Oh, and your first post "passes" with flying colors.
