Why on earth do I have a blog??

I just wanted to post a comment on David Hewlett's blog, but you had to be registered to do that. So I registered and started a blog. For about three weeks. Then not only did I realize I really don't have time for a blog, considering I have a husband, a son, a job, a website ( where I already write things (, volunteer work, and too many hobbies to name, but then David Hewlett moved (! Can you believe it?? I've forgiven him, though, because it's just too much fun hanging out in the forums with the other squirrels and waiting to see what tidbit the Squirrel Emperor will throw to us next.

I decided to toss my neglected blog and write this non-blog for the time being.

So for now, in my spare time (right!) I am writing an essay about my mother-in-law, another one about the time I spent 5 days living with my 88-year-old grandmother, and I am busily posting photos of my adorable great-niece Emma, who is marching (okay, crawling) her way through chemotherapy for acute lymphoblastic leukemia like the trooper she is. She is amazing everyone and will soon celebrate her first birthday! You can see the photos at and watch for fundraiser information if you are so inclined. Emma's dad lost his job two weeks after she was hospitalized and they no longer have health insurance.

And if you actually read this, would you tell me? Because I'm pretty sure no one but my sister and I do.
