Happy Birthday

01Dec08

I had spent a lot of time thinking about this new adventure — trying to choose a name for it, imagining what it will look like, wondering if it will project or even amplify some of my idiosyncrasies. On the night of November 30, while making banana-chocolate-chip-walnut bread, I was watching the time. It was going to happen soon, and I wasn’t quite ready for it. I didn’t have everything

set up yet! I’ve read all the how-to books. Many wonderful people around me have shared their experiences and offered help, but I still have to figure out lots of things for myself. What will I do with it? Am I ready for the care and feeding it requires? What if I make a mistake and there’s no undo button?

After a short night and some struggles, December 1 arrived. I couldn’t stop it. I wanted it to get here. It was 6:30 a.m.

On this day 14 years ago, I introduced a new life to the world. Today, I’m introducing me to the blogsphere.

Happy birthday, Ty.

Happy birthday, WeiwardGirl.
