I just happened across a blog I tried to work on back in 2005... yes, four years ago!!!
At that time, blogging was all very new and I wanted to see what it was all about. Needless to say, I didn't stick with it back then. There are only three entries on that site.
However, to save them for posterity, I have copied those entries and am placing them here. Enjoy a little glimpse of nothing from 2005!

It's a Start!
Okay, so I've always said I should write more. And I've always said that I should keep a journal.
Will this be the day?
A little stream of conciousness here, a little creative writing there, a memoir, a commentary...
All of the above?
We'll see. I'm making a resolution to log in here once a week and write a little something. If I'm the only one who reads it, well whoop-de-doo. If my pals should happen across it, that would be cool. And if you, constant reader, enjoy what you read, let me know!
The game is afoot....

Ahh, fall is finally in the air. It's been ridiculously warm here (highs in the mid 80's), but a cold front moved through last night and it was only 58 degrees at the bus stop this morning. Woo hoo!
I was going to sow some grass seed last night, since DH said it was supposed to rain. I'm glad I didn't - the seed would have blown away!
DH says he figured out why I'm such a slug during the day. He said I "shoot my load" (what a lovely phrase) first thing in the morning, and then I'm spent for the rest of the day! I have to admit, the kids have been giving me funny looks for the way I am in the morning... bouncy, happy, laughing... all while they're squinty-eyed and grumbling through their Pop-Tarts. It just cracks me up every morning to see the kids stumble down the stairs and grump that the dining room lights are too bright. After about half an hour, though, I'm ready to crawl back into bed. And no, it isn't the Coke (as in cola) making me that way. Suck it up, kids! You've got a kooky mom. Get used to it!

Well, it's been more than a week since my last entry. I'm not following through on my resolution!
I've got to go sit through a Service Unit Meeting in a few minutes, so this can't be long.
My neighbor has been walking/jogging every day for the past few weeks and she's really looking great. I know I should be inspired, but I seem to find an excuse every time I think about doing the same thing. Yesterday morning I was sidelined by a HUGE headache. Dan even drove Alex to school, because I would have been a real terror behind the wheel. I actually went back to bed -- something I never ever do. Then this morning, I had a 9:15 appointment for the second half of my root canal. Tomorrow morning I ride. A little exercise, but not enough for this plus-sized gal. Sigh.
Oops, gotta go. Have to change my shirt - Tiger tore a hole in this one right before dinner.
More in awhile, I guess!
