OK, folks, no one fall over and faint - I am now blogging. Randy and the boys have been begging me for quite some time to begin to journal my thoughts for all the world to see; my excuse has been that I am way busier than they are. The truth is that I am intimidated by them! I will never master the english language like Randy and I will never make anyone gut laugh like Jackson. But I am going to blog. I am stepping aside from my fear of man and going for it, my friends. I am also somewhat of a perfectionist. Ouch, that was my conscience -- OK, I am ultimate perfectionist. That by no means indicates that I do anything perfectly. Quite the contrary. I do almost nothing perfect and am almost never satisfied. I was taught in the 8th grade by one Jane Garretson (the best language arts teacher on the planet, by the way) to journal full thoughts and paragraphs. This has haunted me. How can I blog a thought or two without writing a rough draft and editing? Then my impefection will be known to the entire internet world. How scary. Call me the Woman of LaMancha - I am going to face this demon too and win! Yes, I will win! I will blog phrases and half-baked ideas, spelling errors and thoughts that will expose my weakness. Here I go friends!! This should be wild!
