It's just like starting over

Actually, it is starting over.

The old blog got to be quite a burden. I'm hoping to put not quite so much pressure on myself this time. I probably won't post every day. In fact, I can pretty much guarantee that won't be happening.

While I'm still – always? – working on weight loss, I can't make it the be-all and end-all of my life, or my blog. I'm overweight, yes, but I'm fit and healthy according to labwork, and I can still run, albeit slowly.

So, like the header says, I knit and I run and I do both of them repeatedly. When I have something to say, I'll say it.

I do other things, too. I have grandchildren. On May 11, I had three; on May 12, I had six, with the birth of my husband's son's triplet boys. Okay, they're not really mine, they're mine by marriage, but I'm claiming them. Because who doesn't want more grandchildren?

I like to play around with my digital Rebel. I actually began Project 365 this year (you can find my photos here), but gave it up shortly after I quit posting on the old blog. Life just got to be too complicated to keep up with anything. So I pretty much gave up everything.

I'm an active and enthusiastic supporter of Barack Obama in this year's presidential election. And I'm profoundly disappointed that he didn't win a single county in last night's West Virginia primary. I live in the Mountain State, but I can't say I'm too proud of us this morning.

It feels good to be writing again, at least for now. I'm not sure what I have to say; I guess we'll be reading it together.

Thanks for stopping by.

  2. Love the blog title, very clever.

    My candidate didn't win my state primary either, but personally I will be happy with either one as president! It's a win-win IMO.

  4. I'm so glad to see you've got another blog! I'd really missed reading your posts, even if I never commented on your old blog!
