Three Months Ago...

Exactly 3 months ago, to the minute, I started And What Next...


Morrigan talked about the stuff her sister Boudicca blogged about and constantly had me in stitches.

She finally gave me the address to her sister's blog and I loved it! I went through her archives...just couldn't get enough. It was addicting! And she was expressing a lot of the thoughts I had (minus the kids and husband :-) ) I remember looking at Bou's status in the Ecosystem (after Morrigan explained it to me) and thinking wow, to be an Adorable Rodent (that's what she was at the time)

So, I thought I'd give it a try. I loved to write, but never did. I couldn't write without knowing my audience. That's why the thought of a diary never appealed to me when I was younger. I loved to write letters. Traveling so much, I kept up with everyone by letters and later emails. I wrote long letters.

I had no idea of a voice or anything when starting And What Next... Just hoped to have as much fun as it looked like Bou was having and enjoy writing again. I didn't plan on a big audience, if any, didn't plan on a blog family, never thought I could be an Adorable Rodent, and certainly didn't plan on looking forward to meeting anyone.

Three months ago today, I changed a part of my life. I actively and openly share a journey I am on that I may not have realized I was on without this. Even if I did realize it, I wouldn't have had all the laughs, stories and support that I have now.

Appropriate enough, Morrigan was my 4500th visit here tonight. It's been an inconceivable 3 months.

UPDATE: Much to my surprise, when I woke up this morning, I saw "Marauding Marsupial" on the bottom of my page. Thank you steroids carnvials. I unfortunately still can't see the details of how this had come to luck, there will be a recount :-P
