this is my blog

I have to apologize for this blog, you see I've been a blogger stalker for months now. I have a list of blogs that I check everyday and love these people. Some I know in person others are total strangers that I have just happened upon. Anyway, I've wanted for sometime to start a blog and even find myself going through my day thinking in blog. But now, after starting my own, I can't think of one single thing to blog about.....what's up with that??? I'm still inspired and encouraged by these other bloggers and now realize that I may not be that interesting. But isn't that what all you others felt like before???

Actually I have a really important reason for blogging. I grew up in California and just over a year ago, my husband and I uprooted and moved our little family to North Carolina. So we are 3000 miles from both our families, our friends and our home church. So I'm thinking that a blog is a good way for my family members to keep up with my goings on. It keeps the grandparents happy, basically.

So, we're actually in California, for two weeks, visiting our family. Christmas has been special, and we've been able to have lots of relaxation. Staying at my parents house is like staying at the best bed and breakfast EVER! Nice bed linens, room in the closet and dresser, a well stocked bathroom, comfy beds for the kids, chocolates on the pillows every night, free babysitting and the best part.....FOOD....Mom's home cookin'!!!! It doesn't get any better than this! I did get the stink eye one morning, I tried ringing a bell for breakfast while still in bed. That didn't work at all. Whatever!

So far we've enjoyed the sunny skies and big mountain views. We actually dragged my mom to Disneyland and it wasn't crowded at all. Been shopping with my neice and sister. Looking forward to a day out with my best friend and a night away with my sweetie. I'll be trying to soak up as much of the good life before we have to head home on New Year's Day and get back to taking down the Christmas decorations and schoolin' the boys.

So for now, my life is not very exciting. Hopefully, this will get more exciting. :o)
