I had the uncomfortable misfortune to be without wireless connectivity this week for a couple of days.  It was awful.  I feel the need to blog about it in great detail so no one is left with the mistaken impression that it was like “a breath of fresh air” or that we are better people because of it.  I found myself itchy and tense, more so than my usual psoriasis and chronic stress would account for.

Inspiration Strikes!

I was reading someone’s blog a couple of weeks ago and have been thinking about ripping off her idea. This blogger set a challenge for herself to blog every single day until her 40th birthday, which for her was less than a year.

Hello world!

New year = new blog.

I actually started a blog on another site, but haven’t updated or even visited it in over 6 months.  There were some very thought provoking posts relating to my family and homeschool life, which are lost to us forever…because I can’t remember where they are!  I could troll through my e-mail archives and hopefully discover my former blog’s address, but that would be like a bad digital episode of A&E’s “Hoarders”.  Thousands and thousands of unread messages are mixed in with notes from friends, and every newsletter from every museum within 500 miles from the last two years—amongst other spam and whatnot.  All that’s missing is a 4 foot pile of poopy adult diapers in the “trash” and twenty cats pooping all over my inbox.

Besides, my old blog was a total a$$hole.  I’m glad it’s gone.

So, here I am…turning over a new leaf.  I don’t care that it’s because I can’t find my old leaf.  If you were homeschooling two boys like mine you wouldn’t be able to find your leaf either.
