The first post

So at dinner tonight, I announced, "I decided to start a blog today." My boys (Jack and Logan) were having what they call a singing shrieking contest so they ignored me...what a surprise. My husband gets bonus points for not only being able to hear me but for actually listening to me. Of course, he smirked and asked if it would be a blog about an under-appreciated housefrau.

Why I would choose to start a blog today...don't ask me! I have a to-do list as long as my arm. Christmas is a mere 24 days away ad I haven't bought a thing. I need to use the breadmaker I so desperately wanted but have only actually used once. I need to buy presents for some upcoming birthday parties. I need to organize my son's preschool's holiday party. Oh, and I'd like to learn Mandarin but I think that will have to wait a bit.

I'm realizing that this is my first ever post and as such it should have some weight, some depth. At the very least it should be about something important...a life altering event...a momentous occasion. But it's not. It's about all the things I should be doing instead of procrastinating by starting a blog. And just to prove my talent for procrastination, it took me all day to write this post because I kept fidgeting with the layout and adding gadgets like book and blog lists. The real test comes tomorrow. Will I write another entry or procrastinate on my latest endeavor?

Yeah! I love comments! Feel free to leave me one (or two or three).
