how many times have i said that i want to start a blog and haven't actually done it? too many to count. i have read and read and read so many blogs and have had a fear of starting my own. my friends (and many strangers) write so many things that make me smile and laugh, give me insight and ideas, and give some sort of normalcy to this life that i lead. aren't ny resolutions about facing fears and doing things you haven't done and wanted to? well, here it is. welcome to my blog.
