Just getting started...

I feel like I am blog preschooler. What I mean is that I am surrounded by people who have advanced degrees in blogging, and I am feeling like a neanderthal. But that is me, and I have always been a quick learner. Mom and Kristin, remember when I learned to ski? I was pretty grumpy about not being able to do it in five minutes. I think it only took fifteen minutes for me to learn, but at least seven of those minutes were spent pouting and crying. Do I see a pattern in my life--DEFINITELY!! I guess I can't be mad when my kids take after me then, huh?

Thanks to all those who share their blogs with me. I am determined to not be intimidated by you (which is nothing you have done--its all me). I didn't scrapbook because Kristin and Nikki had created these astounding masterpieces that I couldn't possibly match, so I psyched myself out of ever doing it. Bummer, eh? Don't feel sorry for me--I am actually going to learn this time that even though there are Cherie's (i love you, girl) in the world, I can still blog. Its all about keeping our little family connected with all of our dear family and friends, and I won't let self-consciousness get in my way.

So...watch me grow, everyone! I may be in preschool now, but I'll be a kindergartener soon!
