Ryan testing out his revived Gameboy. Evidence of restoration on the table.
Adding my favorite BBQ sauce to my jalapeno poppers. YUM!
Do you care? I'm not sure and the idea is that I don't really care. I read a lot of blogs and have asked myself what the attraction is. I like learning new things and reading about friends' lives. Sometimes it's like reading someone's diary and I get that forbidden feeling.
Whatever the reasons for reading or writing a blog I've decided to create mine to provide myself with a forum for me to simply write. I've recently left my job at the Des Moines Register where I was a staff writer. I'm going to start a completely different journey next year at a payroll company doing health benefits. I'm excited and scared - but that good scared feeling you get like when you graduate from college, make a big purchase or any adult decision, really.
I wanted a forum where I can ask lots and lots of questions.
I'll cook. I'll knit. I'll rant. I'll brag about my family, friends and boyfriend. I'll ask about your opinions and take pride in my alma mater... all while at home in my pajamas.
Welcome. Hope you come back! (I'll post lots of pictures for those that are afraid of big, bad blocks of text).
