It has been 23 days now since I set up this page. 23 days to actually get the balls to write my first post. I've thought alot about posting over the last 3+ weeks, but I just haven't been able to get over this first obligatory post. I mean, what the hell am I supposed to say???
So, for now, I'll say this, I'm really excited about having this blog. I'm hoping I can use it to keep our friends and family up to date on the everyday happenings of our life. I'm not exactly sure yet what route it is going to take, I mean telling my close friends that I named my hemorrhoid Jerry is one thing, but telling the Internet? I don't know if I'm up for that yet? Just kidding! Or am I? ;)
Either way, the one thing I do feel the need to disclose is that despite the fact that I'm the daughter of an English teacher, I'm terrible, terrible! at grammar and spelling. If you need someone to balance your checkbook or analyze your cash flow and debt service coverage ability, I'm your gal. But if you're looking for wondrously structured sentences that are perfectly punctuated, you're probably not going to find them here, no, instead you'll find lots of run-on sentences, full of way to many commas, because I love commas, and I have yet to master the semicolon.
So, I'll close this first post by saying thanks for stopping by My Merlot. Pull up a chair and grab a glass, we're uncorking the first bottle and it should be a good time.
