Sh*t My Daughter Says....

Okay, so maybe that's not the most appropriate title for this blog, but it is most definitely a direct reference to the website/book (maybe it's both now, I don't know) "Sh*t My Dad Says".

Anyways, if you know my daughter, you know that she has this uncanny ability to whip out some oneliners at the most opportune of times. For example:

We are riding in the car this morning. A song comes on the radio. She says "Mom, who is this"? (My daughter has excellent taste in music, just for everyone's information.)  I say to her "This is Black Sabbath. This is the band that Ozzy Osbourne sang with before he became just Ozzy". So we proceed to give it a listen for a few seconds and she says "Oh, so Ozzy Osbourne sang with Black Sabbath before he sang by himself?" I explain that yes he did, and that Ozzy sings the song "See You On The Other Side", and to remember that I want this song played at my funeral. She says "Okay Mom", and proceeds to listen to her music.

A few minutes later she looks over at me and says "MOM, I WANT AC/DC PLAYED AT MY FUNERAL!!"

Yes, my child, I have taught you well. Now if I could just teach you not to argue every little point.......

Blogging, Take One...

Okay... I'm doin' it.... It's been a long and agonizing two years, and I have been silent for far too long. It feels as though I am almost out of practice! With the death of Myspace, and Facebook not quite as "blogger" friendly (IMO), I've had to find a new outlet.... Well not really, I've just kept my mouth shut for a long time and I see people with some AWESOME blogs, and I WANT ONE!!

So, what am I going to ramble about? Whatever I want, IT'S MY BLOG!!! :)

No really, I think it's time to share some experiences, do a bit of ranting, updates on life, and some general commentary on some goings on in the world... I know, aren't you all excited??

I'm finding through my job(s) that  many people have gone through the same things I have (imagine that), and if somehow I can share my hope, strength, and experience, and give someone a little peace of mind, then so be it! :)

Anyways, this is just the start of what I hope is a long journey, and if you hate it, well, then at least it was an emotional outlet for me, and that's all that really matters! :)

TTFN!
