Up way too late!!!
Truly, this is my first blog. I have been dragging my feet on creating one of these things. I am a bit old fashioned. I like my journals. I have stacks and stacks of them, dating from the sixth grade. (Now that is an interesting read!) Every Christmas my mom would buy me a new journal so that I had a place to jot down the fascinating details of my life for the year ahead. I have been going back recently and reading bits and peices of them in order to purge unwanted episodes of my life I probably should have never written in the first place for posterity. Don't get me wrong, my children will know the mistakes I made, they will know their mother was not perfect. However, there are some things better left unwritten. Back in the day, I apparently did not know about self editing, I just wrote whatever was on my mind. Now that I am a mother I have to think of what I am leaving behind. What bits and peices will my children put together based on what I have written? That thought is the reason I am dusting off all of the old journals and self editing if you will...right into the garbage can. So, with that being said, I am testing out, finally, the new way to release the thoughts in my head. So far, I kind of like it....but It's keeping me up way too late!
