testing ... testing ... test test test ... 

Preparing to start the New Year with a resolution to write on this thing on a regular basis. Many goals await ... running, organizing, Bible-reading, communication, time spent with friends and family, paying down debt ... all are so many things I *want* to do but just don't do for whatever reason.

This blog is going to be my way of being held accountable. The trick is not to open it up to public views until something is actually accomplished. :)

My little family is back together this evening. Will spent the week in Indianapolis with his grandma and aunt -- Allie had spent a week up there in June. I'm not altogether certain they enjoy it but until they say they don't want to go, they'll continue going. We stopped for some quick school-clothes shopping at the outlet mall in Taylorsville/Columbus. Great outlet mall they have there and this was the weekend of many sales with school starting soon. School. It seems like summer vacation only just started and school starts in 1 1/2 weeks. It's not that I think summer vacation is too short -- it's more like I blinked and my children are growing up. While I'll most likely never be a stay-at-home mom, I do wish we could sell so much of this junk laying around that the house would be easier to take care of/keep clean and I could spend more time with them while they're on their school vacations.

Regrets. They aren't fun and I'd rather live in the present.

So I have this blog ... and when I first started it, I had no idea what to put in it. Everyone else was blogging, I better jump on the bandwagon! So I did and here it sat -- empty -- for eons (in computer-age). 

I still don't have anything to say or anything that I think others will be interested in. This is more for me to keep track of what's going on in the life/lives of our home. Since starting this, the kids have grown older, the greyhounds have crossed the Rainbow Bridge, we've opened our home and hearts to pugs, I've started running, and we have chickens. What the what?? Might not be interesting for anyone else but you know what? Me no care. 

And today -- July 17, 2013 -- I am kick-starting this blog and we'll see what happens.
