Er, hello.

I was going to title this post 'Hello World' but that struck me as pretty presumptuous.  A more apt title is probably 'Hello Kris' or 'Hello Caryn' but then again, my two closest friends likely won't read my blog as I talk to them just about every day.

So, um, back to you.  Yes, you there...hello, how are you?  This feels odd.  So until I get used to it, I am going to write down a few reasons why I thought I'd join the bloggy fun.  First and foremost, it's because I am helplessly addicted to a number of wonderful cooking and crafting blogs that are truly inspiring. Problem is, though I'm inspired, I actually haven't done much.  Yes, I've written my lists (I love me some lists!) and have even done some onesie-twosie projects, but I know I can do better.  And I want to do better.  So I figured I'd start a blog and put it out there as to what craft or activity I plan to do.  Maybe some folks will join in?  And we can get some momentum going...

Also, I have found it's hard to stay connected to everyone when you have small children.  Sure, I see lots of friends at birthday parties and such, but I can't seem to get much socializing in when I'm child wrangling--maybe it's because I have three kids now?  And only two hands??  So those recipes I told you I'd get you--hopefully they'll end up here.  And that amazing whatever I'm using for this-or-that, check the sidebar (no, not like right now, but eventually, okay?).

So what do I think I'll blog about?  Crafts, cooking, homekeeping, & all things kid-related, I'm sure.  You know, the stuff I try to chat about at night with my husband until he says, "honey, don't you have girlfriends to talk to about that stuff?"  Okay, not really, he's a peach, but I swear he's thinking it.  So again, hello, I'm Sandra and I'm very glad to be here.

Thanks for stopping by my blog! I have found myself chuckling and totally relating to the things you said here...."don't you have girlfriends to talk about this stuff with?" It's the same at my house! So yes--glad to get to know you in the blogosphere, and to make new friends. I just don't get outside my four walls enough, I guess. Well, other than to run my kids to school and gymnastics, and football, and well piano. Does that count as getting out? Anyway! Love your blog! It's darling! Can't wait to see more....
