I started blogging almost a year ago. I didn't start blogging to use my creative writing skills, I have none and don't even try to pretend I do. I started blogging to make friends, meet new people and have an excuse to keep from cleaning my bathroom.

I love to take pictures, especially of those people I love. For anyone who doesn't know, this is SH (superhubby), the true love of my life. He was so tired when I took this picture, he had been up all night finishing a doll house for my dear niece who was leaving to go back to NJ. This was at a family reunion and he was so tired after this he slept for hours.

This is DD, another love of my life. She is 17 and very smart. I remember being 17 but I do not remember being this smart. When I was 17 I was just thinking about boys keeping my grades up and studying. She has a boy crazy streak too but so far I think she has made pretty good decisions, though I worry all the time that will change. I remember 17 and it was so easy to play with fire....and you always got burned.

DS is the second from the right. The other boys are friends (other than SH) that spent most of their weekends here. DS moved out on his own recently and I have avoided having a nervous breakdown over it so far, but I'm not promising anything. Instead of 8 or 9 teens now I have 1 or 2 on the weekends...hard to get used to.

I mentioned above that I love to take pictures, though I have a lot to learn. In the summer my niece comes in from NJ and spends some time with her Ohio family. I caught this of her and a friend floating around in a friends pool. My niece is on the front and she is truly another one of my true loves....I miss her 10 months out of the year.

I know the two people who read regularly already know all of this, but I felt like I needed a short walk down recent memory lane. My memory doesn't seem quite as good as it used to be but I find that useful since I can just make stuff up the way I wanted it to happen.

Nah, you have more than 2 readers. Also seems to me, your blog has succeeded in meeting your goals for it. Bet you never thought you'd end up meeting some nut from NY who would send you soap.

I love this post; I don't remember ever seeing that pic of your that, too. And I second what Monk said--you have lots more than two readers, I guarantee it. They just don't feel the need to share their thoughts and opinions on everything the way your DEVOTED friends--the soap-making nut from NY and the needy-neurotic immature one from MN--do. So, THIS is why you started blogging? Lucky you! HAHAHAHA! BESIDES, YOU OBVIOUSLY RATE PRETTY HIGH BECAUSE I SURE DON'T HAVE ANY SOAP FROM NY, AND YOU DO! And I can guarantee you this--I have been waiting and waiting for mine and it better get here soon as it's getting a little pungent around here! HAHAHAHA. Great post, Katy.

Katy, are you and SH over at the Roach Hotel today? Eeewww...there is a special place in Heaven for you two.

I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the chat last night; I really needed some "girlfriend time" and I thank you for providing that--I even gave you a special shout-out on my blog post :). I will say this--I sure do tell you lots...hehehe.

Lotsa luv to you and the whole fam.
