Aaaaand... Take Two

Years ago, I tried starting a blog. I love to write and sometimes things happen in my life that I want to capture in a time capsule other than my memory.

But, my blog never went anywhere because of my self-confidence. Or lack of, actually. I would start thinking that I can't do a blog because my life really isn't that interesting, so where would I get fuel for said blog? But, sometimes my life really is that interesting... at least to me.

My husband often points out to me that I don't have to write every day. He's right. I don't. But, I'm scared that many months will go by between my postings, because... I'll be honest. I'm pretty damn lazy. Take for instance the quote and tradition journal my husband and I started in 2008. My husband and I have many inside jokes together. We have quite a few quips we zing back and forth that the general public wouldn't get. In 2008 we took an anniversary trip to Disney World. On that trip, we created so many more quotes and memories and I realized we should be capturing these moments. When we got home, we bought a notebook and proceeded to document those sayings and others that we commonly say. We also started putting down some of the traditions that we started - like when we paint, we always have to listen to the Shrek soundtrack. As I mentioned earlier, we started that journal in 2008. So, now - at the end of 2011 - we should have multiple journals filled, right? Right? Ummm, yeah, not so much. We haven't even really put a dent in this one. It's not because of lack of content. Oh no, we continually spout random things that crack us up and we immediately say "we need to put that in our notebook!!" But do we? Nope. I'm scared this blog will be the same way. Something I deem blog worthy will happen and I'll think "I need to get on the computer and jot that down!" and I won't.

But, ya know what... I don't think I care anymore. I'm going to start this thing and see what happens. Feel free to join me on this adventure.


  1. Trust yourself and just let it happen boo and it will all be good.

  2. I'm curious as to whether or not we're going to learn these sayings you speak of.

  3. Good question, Chris. I've actually been thinking of writing posts on some of those sayings. One of my favorites that I use a lot - whenever I cook or bake something for my husband that is wonderfully delicious, yet horrible calorie wise, he'll ask if I'm trying to make him fat. My response always is, "the fatter you are, the skinnier I look."
