A New Beginning

Well, I must confess, I feel a wee bit silly, posting here about my "very first ever journal entry" when the truth is, I've been blogging for almost three years on Kendrie's Caringbridge site. And I'm not giving that up yet ... just adjusting my coordinates a bit as my focus has shifted.

I wish I had something really profound, or hysterically funny to start the blog off with a bang. Hell, I'd settle for interesting. But for now I need to play the NIKE card and JUST DO IT, otherwise it'll be another month that this blog sits here vacant. If I wait until I've got all the nuances of Blogger figured out ..... well, it's sort of like if you wait to have a baby until you can afford it, then you'll never have one.

So I'm going to treat this very first post as a chore on my to-do list that I've been dreading for a while, but am happy to check off with my pencil once it's done. In the meantime, I'll keep posting and trying to figure out how all this html code-template-sidebar-business plays out. While I've considered leaving Caringbridge for awhile, I must admit there is comfort in familiarity and at least over *there*, I know how to insert a damn link and get the music to play. And geez, is there any way to get some of those posts over here???? Not all of them, but maybe a few???

{repeat to self: you'll like it once it's done; you'll like it once it's done; in through the mouth; out through the nose; in through the mouth; out through the ...... oh, the hell with it, is there any Amaretto left?}
