What Have I Gotten Myself Into?

My plan when I started this blog was to post a few times, see if I was any good, and would share it with friends if it went well. Well, when do things ever really go as you plan?

When I buy birthday and Christmas presents, I have the hardest time not giving them to the recipient early. Last year at Thanksgiving I went to visit my mom, stepdad and sister (known now as Family A). Knowing I would not see them at Christmas and just wanted an excuse to give gifts, I went ahead and passed out presents. Why even have holidays? So at Christmas, I called and wished them a Merry Christmas and reminded them that they were not forgotten at Christmas and that they were currently wearing and using their presents.

The point of this is that I cannot keep anything fun or exciting to myself. When I went to work this morning, I told a couple of friends that got me addicted to reading blogs that I broke down and started one of my own. What have I gotten myself into? OH the pressure! :-)

But now I'm excited - I have friends that are amused by turkey hot dogs and Kiki's flatulence so hopefully I can keep my posts that simple! And rumor has it I have help coming soon...
