Exercise or Torture?

What is it with me and exercise? Why do I hate it so much? Just the thought of putting on one of those cute spandex outfits and lifting weights or doing jumping jacks makes my whole body hurt. I am a firm believer that all things exercise are forms of torture. I look through magazines …

Oooops

I am one of those crazy people who becomes totally and completely involved in the lives of the characters from the books I am reading. This is most likely one of the reasons that I have a difficult time putting a book down once I’ve picked it up. This is also the reason for the …

Being a Parent

It’s not my plan to post on a daily basis, but I’ve decided that yesterday’s isn’t going to count, since it was just my intro. Plus I was having some deep thoughts this morning and thought I’d share them. I’ve heard it said that life is never easy, but that might be the biggest understatement …

And so it begins….

This is my very first attempt at blogging and I am very excited about the prospect of writing out all the thoughts that run around in my head throughout the day. I used to dream about one day becoming a writer, but somewhere along the way, that dream got forgotten. School got in the way, …
