New Deal

I don't even remember who or what gave me the idea to start blogging. It just now occurred to me that it may have been my loving brother who lives overseas. He sporadically keeps a blog to keep us family/friends back home updated on his daily life. I have always and enjoyed and looked forward to reading his blogs and keeping a small peek on his life from afar.

With the exception of my school years, I have always enjoyed writing down my thoughts and feelings about things. I never did much of it though. I loved to write but hated the process of writing it down with a pen on paper. My pen never moved fast enough to keep up with the thoughts that were pouring out of my mind and if it did it was in such a scrawl that it was illegible.

Alas, computer technology! This would enable me to type my thoughts....a much faster process than physical writing. My first attempt at writing was poems and rhymes about family members. I have to admit, I would be rather embarrassed to post some of my rhymes I wrote from several years ago. Maybe one day when I am feeling brave....or running out of things to write about MAYBE I will post some of them..for entertainment purposes only. :-)

Anyway, I was thinking about my blog lately. When I first started to blog it was meant to be sort of an online diary for myself. A way to keep up with what went on in my life on a day to day matter how uneventful it may be.

When we moved to Texas my blog took on a different form. It became more of a way to keep family members and friends back home informed of my going ons in Texas.

I enjoy writing and I like to use writing as an outlet on a day to day basis. There is not usually much to write about daily, but from here on out you will see posts of my daily matter how mundane it may be.

Take what you want and leave the rest.


  1. Oh yea! That will help with my addicgtion...

    Personally I love the everyday stuff...good, bad, whatever. That's life!

    Bring it on sis'ta!

  2. Isn't it ironic that now I find it most interesting to read your blog on a day-to-day basis when I have all but abandoned mine. Actually, I have just moved to another location... for now.
