Who Reads These Things?

Here I am blogging world! I know, sorry, another one to add to your blog roll. Or not. But you really can. If you want. And another blog to cause a traffic jam on the information superhighway. BTW- when is rush hour? Anyway, the husband called it- he always said I would get into blogging and really enjoy it. Do, I stroke his ego and admit he was right? K, I will. Swallow. My. Pride. The husband, you were so right.

I will say that I am going to be an honest blogger. That is one of my peeves about blogs: all the sugar-coated sweetness out there. (especially in the LDS world) How many perfect homes, children, and people really exist? Not as many as are portrayed on the blogscene, I would venture to guess. This really is one thing that has kept me from blogging. I have a fear that my neighbors will actually find my blog (out of the billion out there) and realize I am complaining about their dog that barks at all hours, or their kids who cut across my yard on the way home from school and scatter my rocks all over the sidewalk (does it really matter?). It is possible they could find this one, right? Right. But I will be honest anyway. And vague.

K, enough. I am not a negative person, really. Really. I am just a stay-at-home mom who feels outnumbered by little people at times and who sometimes swims through piles of laundry just to make it through the loft. But, I love my life. Could I be any more blessed?

Anyway, welcome to Life's Little Wedgies. I promise, if you comment, we can help each other figure out how to pick those wedgies together and have a good laugh later. What could be more satisfying than that? Um, nothing.

Hi!-

Congrats on the start. I love it so far. It's so fun to keep up with people this way. Your hubby was right, it is fun.

I love you!! You are so much fun and I love honest people. I consider myself one as well. Life deffinately doesn't need anymore "sugar coatings". Anyway, enjoy!

I know you hate them but I'm glad you are doing it for those of us who will be far and miss all the goings on in the walker world. This will close the gap and keep us in touch. Sniff sniff. Sob.
Sarah wants me to get one so bad. When life slows down...maybe. Good luck appreciating life's little pleasures and may one of them be cookies and cream ice cream...and a rootbeer for the hubbster. I'm I suppose to use real names on these. Or protect the innocent? I'm oblivious to "the Rules". anyways, good on ya! Love the family pic:)

I messed up and deleted my last comment. Sorry. I love your photo of the family! It is soooo cute! Hubby might not like that word. I think blogging is a great way for Grandma's and relatives to take a peek into your home and see how the little ones are doing and mom surviving!!! I have two kids who are blogging, plus all my nieces. I love it! So good luck and keep writing...it may give you sanity!

Kudos for the reality. I am a blog-stalker, so this opens up a whole new avenue of staying up LATE to read how goofy other people's lives are. Happy blogging, it's totally addictive.
