I have arrived!

It took bunches of sweet-talk to the hubby on my part to even get a computer much less be able to set up a blog. Which, at this time he knows nothing about. This computer thing is very intimidating to him. It's pretty intimidating to me come to think of it! It nearly took an act of God and lots of help from my sister to just get me to this point. But, here we are and I'm so excited. May God use me to bless someone out there in this huge computer world.

I do have a few questions that have come to mind as I'm embarking upon this computer adventure. First off what in the world is up with the word BLOG? The first thing that enters my mind is a nasty, smelly, sticky, thick, swampy, area. Hope it's not like that. Although if you really think about it, it fits in a way. Imagine all these millions of blogs you have to wade through, some filled with nasty comments, aggrevated moms or dads whose days have been filled with one frustrating moment from the next venting out their frustrations, the sad and lonely searching, and you have to navigate through all of these to find some of the true gems of this internet world. So, I can see how my definition of the word blog could fit in this sector. I do welcome the correct meaning of the word and it's history if any computer experts out there want to inform me. I'm forever looking for a learning oppurtunity. Can't say that I'll remember it though.

I'm hoping I'll be able to stay committed to this thing. I love writing, or I used to before carpal tunnel and a life happened to me. If I can keep the house clean and my parents at bay for awhile I can at least give a few good posts!

I like to ramble which is probably why my sister urged me so persistently on getting a computer and getting set up with a blogsite. I bet it's a ploy. If I'm on here rambling my brains out to this computer then she can pick and choose easier what she wants to listen to and what she doesn't. She better watch it though, I'll just email it to her over and over till she reads it. Oh yes, there will be a test!! (evil laugh follows)

Parting note from Romans 5:18-19 (contemporary language)
Here it is in a nutshell: Just as one person did it wrong and got us in all this trouble with sin and death, another person did it right and got us out of it. But more than just getting us out of trouble, he got us into life! One man said no to god and put many people in the wrong; one man said yes to God and put many in the right.

You may have to copy and paste this in the adress window, but it gives the definition of the word. For starters, it comes from shortening "web log".

Welcome to the world, baby girl!

Have fun. You'll meet lots of great people along the way.

This is a great first post!

BTW, I don't HAVE to open that email if'n I don't wanna!
Bwahhahhhhaaaa! Snicker.
P.S. Wanna go see Superchic(k) in concert in Z-hills in may? love them!

Hey little sis...I'm here at AJ's prompting. Nice to meet you! As for the word BLOG...it is short for Web Log. Just be glad they didn't shorten it to webl or we'd all be known as "weblers."
