Since August I have been posting a blog everyday. It has been a challenge but I'm on a mission. This post will be number 949 which means if I continue I should hit 1,000 posts before the end of the year. I have been blogging since 2006 just after my dear friend Gail died and just before my sweet Momma passed. This blog has been my release from the depression and stress that came from those two events. I've written about my depression, saddness, middle age crazy, menopause, work, family, just anything that is important in MY life. My blog also gives me a chance to write. I have always written in my hand written journals and will always write in them. I love to write. I used to think that fiction would be my venue but I have found that I'm not good at that and I don't really enjoy it as much as I do this kind of writing. I like to write what is in my mind and what I feel at any given moment. I don't necessarily share everything here as that could get me in trouble with my family and friends. I wish I had the guts to just dump here regardless of what people think but I like being married. I love my kids and family and friends and don't want to alienate them so my hand journals will be the place for that stuff. Maybe someday I will be brave enough to share some stuff from my history here, someday.
