Off my butt
Okay, I have been documenting my family's experiences since Mom had a stroke just over three years ago. I write an incredibly long message, then email it to two different groups to get the word out about Mom's progress. When I first started, many people said I should start a blog. Being the archaic granny that I am (I'm now 38 but was an older 35 at the time...), I didn't want to delve into that unknown and the way I was doing it was just fine with me. Many more people have mentioned that I should write a book about our family experiences throughout Mom's recovery from the stroke. That scares the junk out of me...how do I start? Then who do I give it to? Then who pays for what? Maybe Oprah will hear about our story and have Mom and I on the show to talk about our experience and help me publish a book. Well, nothing is going to happen until I get off my butt and do something. So I'm starting this blog to help get some juices flowing. It will include updates about Mom, but we may find that I'm writing more junk about my adventures with a 2 year old and 9 month old...all those stories make Mom laugh...we shall see.
