It’s been a while since I’ve seriously thought about blogging again. It was such a huge part of my life for so long…and then Facebook came along. It seemed so much simpler to just write a few lines to all my friends and family instead of taking time to write my little stories of life. The only thing was…I missed it. It seemed like so much effort to start again and when the kids grew up, I was at a loss.
Anyways, that was then, this is now. The perfect place to stick my toe back in the blogging waters has opened up. It’s called Blogging with Effy. She is an artist that has cultivated a wonderful community of kindred souls, that is encouraging everyone to blog for just one month. (OK, I’m a week late starting here!)
Looking at my current blog, it could probably use a bit of updating. I don’t know if I’ll get to that, but I can bring you up to date (or introduce us!) on who we are. Spoiler alert: My kids aren’t teenagers anymore!
I am Susan, living in the beautiful pacific northwest with my husband, youngest daughter and a whole mess of critters.
My husband Shaun retired a year ago. We were supposed to spend this last year traveling and doing all sorts of things…but we all know how that went. His current passion is bicycles. He rides them, builds them, repairs them…well…you get the picture.
KT is our eldest daughter. She’s a veterinarian living in Montana with my two adorable grandpups. We like to call her Dr KT just because we can.
Our youngest, Mimi, moved back home with us so that they could go back to school to become a teacher after an 8 year career as a barber. I’m pretty sure it was a bit of a shock to learn that almost every single minute would be spent at home!
I hope you join me again tomorrow as I continue on Day 2 of my blogging adventure!
