so, i finally caved in and decided to create a blog.  well, that’s not true.  i had one 3 years ago when james and elisabeth were really into blogspot and i caved into pressure and created an account.  i haven’t written a post or added pictures to that blog since the first day i created it.  so this will prove interesting and a bit challenging to keep all this writing, posting, adding photos, sharing, yada yada yada up on a daily basis.  i’ve decided that there’s only two outcomes that can come of this:  prove myself (and you) wrong. my type-A, routine-like nature can incorporate even the mundane tasks of typing and maintaining a hopefully entertaining read.  OR i cut it short just like blog #1.  only time will tell. i’m hoping for the foremost and you should too.  keeping my fingers crossed.
