New Blogger

Okay, this is my first time doing this blogging thing. I have always wanted to get into it, but there have been many excuses that delayed me from doing so. I love to write, so that's not the problem. Excuses included:

no time - I'm a mom of 3 beautiful kids, 8, 5, and 3
no inspiration - having young children and a not so supportive husband somehow stole my writing inspiration away
no comfort - My computer's in a cluttered "guest room", which really isn't a guest room because the contraption we have posing as a bed is actually a metal daybed frame and two old boxspring mattresses and we took off the boys bed when we got their new bunkbed sets a year ago. The computer chair is one of those cheap plastic lawn chairs people have before they can afford one of the nice patio set to put in their back yard. No cushion or anything. Just hard plastic. So not comfortable.

So, now I've decided that even if I take five minutes and struggle through the comfort issues, I can somewhere muster up the inspiration to begin writing again. Lord knows that being a stay-at-home mom with three children, a military husband, and recently divorced parents, I'm sure that I can muster up something to talk about.

So there's my introduction. That is me in a nutshell. A very small nutshell. There's so much more to tell. But for some reason my mind keeps trailing off to the unfinished laundry, the uncooked Sunday dinner, the computer room that I have to reorganize if I plan to blog more often because if I don't I'll never be able to concentrate... and so much more. You'd think that with the kids off playing Wii, I'd be left with my thoughts, but kids never do what's expected. So off I go to do the mom things that I need to do and hopefully blogging will get some time again soon.
