I did it! i really did it! I started a blog!

Hi, I'm Kristin. I'm starting this blog because I love to write about what's going on in our lives, and from comments back, to learn from other people about their lives. So, please be patient because I'm new to blogging- somewhat. I want to share great places and resources I find along the way.

All's quiet at home. My kids are in bed. We have 2 boys and one girl. My husband is at work. All you hear is the clickety clack of this noisy keyboard. And now that I've created this blog... hmmm... what to write....

I just discovered http://www.hillbillyhousewife.com/ last night, as I stayed up WAY too late, staring at this screen and waiting for blessed dial-up to get movin. What a great resource! I found a link from her for homemade baby food, cheap menu planning, good-for-you recipes, home and wife stuff (Check that wife stuff out! ha ha!). Great place! Except that my husband thinks my new nickname is: Hillbilly Housewife. GReaaaAT!

And you know, I really feel the need to share with you a part of my day and the meaning behind this picture. After trying to get just a very small -maybe 10 minute- nap in, my son is screaming in the kitchen with none other than, about a 1/2 cup of dark cocoa powder all over! Not sure why he was screaming but... maybe because it tased awful?? I told him, "It wasn't worth it, was it?" UNsweetened... mmm... not what he thought that was going to be I bet! So, I guess we all learned from that one- no NAPS!
