Just the beginning...

I used to have a blog on Xanga, but was having trouble with it, so I'm switching over to the "new thing." So I'm writing on this thing called a blog again. I decided that since I could, I would, if for no other reason than to help me organize my thoughts and dreams and frustrations and joys and ponderings. I know online diaries are the biggest snooze of anyone's wasted internet surfing time, so I promise this won't be that. But hopefully I will throw out some musings and from time to time, get some feedback. By the way, most of this will probably be the wife speaking, since Jon has his own personal website which he's devoted too much of his blood, sweat, and tears to give up. He even writes his own code, so I give him a break :)

The biggest reason I decided to restart this, was the news that Jon and I are expecting our first baby in August! So many people (from all over) have asked me to keep them updated, that I decided to put all my updates here! Hopefully, this will help so that I at least know what to say when people ask me, so what's new with you and the baby?? What's new right now? I could eat tuna for the next week and not be sick of it. Let's see...New Years Day I started a kitchen fire...last night Jon and I handed out plates of holiday goodies to all our neighbors in the building and met some wonderful people...and I had a good 40-minute conversation with our maintanance man this morning while he put plastic over our windows. He has a very big heart and I have a lot of respect for him. I have almost eaten all of the cherry cordials that my first grader Katherine gave me, my sister's just started a DTS with YWAM (Youth with a Mission) and my Christmas break has almost run out.

Thus begins 2007!
