Blog Post #1

This is my second first blog post. The last one disappeared when I pressed backspace and went back to the previous page. Don't worry, it wasn't worth missing. Still, I don't like backspace.

I don't know why I am now starting a blog. Blogs have been around so long that they are no longer hip. I bet they stopped being cutting edge a good 7 years ago. But here I am. Only a decade behind hip! This blogging decision may have been brought about by the fact that my good pal, just started a blog. Probably. I am not the most original person. (In case you missed the unoriginal blog post.) Also, I realized last night that I haven't put pictures up on facebook in 7 months. A blog seemed easier because I could pretend that I didn't have to update pictures for the past 7 months.

 (As a side note, the future of this blog doesn't look rosy, seeing as I couldn't bother updating pictures on facebook for 7 months. But let's not be pessimistic!)

Recently a lovely friend said she didn't like reading blogs that were just I did this, I did that, I thought this. So that will be the premise for my blog. It won't be about me. It will be about my neighbors. hahahaha Seriously, that would be a funny blog. Well funnier if you lived somewhere besides a teensy town in NNY. Occasionally one of our neighbors will splash out and have a yelling fit on the front lawn, complete with vulgar expressions. Normally though, the neighbors are very well behaved and nice people. Which doesn't make for good press. So this blog will just have to be about my family, my kids, my husband, my garden, etc. Occasionally, I will fill you in on the yelling fits of my neighbor. Which will all be very nicely, smugly indirectly about I, I, I.

So welcome to the my, my, my blog! I am off to pick a bowl of wet Apple Jacks from off the floor.

I meant to sign up as your follower (sounds a bit weird, right??) under my blog name so it'd be all professional, but apparently I'm so unprofessional I don't even know how to do that. But I'm pumped for your blog! I loved your thing about the neighbors b/c of my insane neighbors! I could write a whole blog on them. In fact, yesterday I looked up from my lovely brunch w/ Matt to see the crazy dude looking in my window. I kid you not. So disturbing! But I think you've given me my next blog post idea! Yay for blogs!

I see how it is... your impressive older sister writes a blog for THREE YEARS and you never feel the need, but as soon as Nina gets one... IF NINA JUMPED OFF A BRIDGE, WOULD YOU JUMP OFF, TOO? Wait, don't answer that. Anyway, I think it's awesome you have a blog, now I need to see pictures of your kiddos.

Blogs are way funner than facebook, even if they aren't "hip"; in fact I know quite a few people who think they are way hip. Anyway, I blog mostly about what I sew, that's not talking about me, but more like your garden, right? I see you're a follower (that is a bit creepy) ;> so maybe that means mine isn't too boring? =)

I second Clover!

Nina, you are a blank generic silhouette. I like my followers to have faces. FIX THAT. Followers does sound creepy doesn't it? And Lisa, I think the I, I, I thing was more about braggy blogs. You know the kind I mean? I did all this marvelous stuff and then I did more. So have no fear, your blog doesn't qualify! :-) haha that sounds like I am saying you don't do marvelous things! ;-)\
Clover I WOULD jump off a bridge if Nina did. As long as it was only 6 feet from the water with nice deep water beneath. I am not a daring kind of copycat.

Well, since I don't like heights, I won't be jumping off anything too high. Bet, you can sigh a breathe of relief.
