Only At My House…
I had this crazy idea that I would start a blog. There was one small obstacle. I know NOTHING about computers. No problem. That is what Google and YouTube were made for, right? Well, surprisingly much of what I found was way over my head. I thought a dashboard was something in your car and that a plug-in was another word for an electrical outlet. Google and YouTube told me otherwise.
I have stayed up late for the last several evenings trying to get this up and running. So nearly four days after I began this quest, I am finally launching my blog. Is it perfect? No. Not even close. Is there room for improvement? Absolutely. Yet, life as I know it continues on.
This morning as I was waking up, Owen, my youngest child, he informed me he could not possibly go to school today. It seemed he was suffering from a sudden case of the dreaded hiccups. Nice try, Mister. Let’s go.
After getting all three kids of to school, I headed home. I sat my sleep deprived self down on the couch. That proved to be a dreadful mistake. It was raining outside and the house was quiet as a mouse. Can you guess were this going? Yep. I fell asleep.
OK, so I feel better now and what harm did I create by taking a little cat nap? And then I looked at the calendar….My doctor’s appointment was today? You have got to be kidding me! How do I call and say that I simply forgot my appointment, especially after receiving a reminder phone call and a letter. Yes, life as I know it continues to go on.
It has occurred to me this blog, is kind of like life, well, my life anyway. I had an image in my head that I wanted to create. It didn’t happen as easily or quickly as I hoped. Nor, does it look exactly as I wanted, yet here I am.
*Editor’s note: This is the second time I have typed this post. I somehow managed to navigate away from my first post without updating it. This has to get easier. Right?
