200 WOW!

I just realized that the last post I did was #200!! I started this blog on October 17, 2007. That was 824 days ago, when you divide that by 200 post that averages out to a post every 4 or 5 days. Not to bad form me when you consider that I have a bit of a commitment problem! I would like it to be more but life has a tendency of getting in the way. As many of you who have been my loyal readers you know that I have been on a steady decrease of my frequency of posts. That needs to change. I have never been much of a writer, I would like that to change also. I have set a goal to WRITE more here on my blog. This blog is a record of my life and the life of my family. We have always heard that a picture is worth a 1000 words, and while that may be true there are things that can't be revealed through a photo. There is also a lot of things that happen in my life that i just don't have the opportunity to capture in a picture. The first thing I am committing to do in my effort is to do something I have seen on other blogs called 10 on Tuesday. 10 random things that may be related or can be something totally random that I want to keep a memory of. My kids do funny stuff all the time and I think to myself, I should do a blog post about that, but I don't a have a picture to go with it so I just let it go, forgetting it completely. Sam did something really funny the other day (what am I saying she does something funny everyday!) but I didn't write it down and now I have no recollection of what it was. Sometimes I will talk about the funny things in that I think may get a reaction on Facebook but that won't make it into my blurb books that have become the records of our lives (since I haven't scrapbooked in 4 years!)

So stay tuned and keep me motivated, if you like it when I update I need to hear your feedback. Leave me comments, if you don't feel comfortable telling me who you are you can stay anonymous. (just be nice, you know I'm talking to you!) I am asking for your help in reaching a goal here people!! When I get lots of feedback I feel motivated to post more. It only takes a few seconds to say hey "I liked this" or "I know how you feel about that" so come on and speak up!!

And since it is against my religion to post without a picture I will take you to a place that has been on my mind a lot lately. This was taken on our 10 year anniversary trip to Hawaii. I was skinny. I was trying to get pregnant. It was warm, (not cold and rainy like right now!) It was nice not having to deal with kids for a week, I get to have a few days without kids starting this Friday! I want to go back, but not until I am skinny again!
