You Say You Want a Resolution?

Well, coming in at the very last minute, here, but I'm going to try to be a better blogger in 2012 (God, that still sounds like the future, doesn't it?  Remember when 2000 seemed so far off?  Now it does, again, but in the opposite direction!  So weird).  I'm going to try to blog daily in 2012.  They won't be tomes, sometimes you might just get pictures, but I'm hoping to get back to this ol' blog.

Why?  Well, honestly, it's not about the ad revenue, although that's nice.  It's not about the comments, even though I love them.  The main reason that I want to be a better blogger is that I have a horrendous memory, especially when I'm not getting good sleep, and if I hope to remember anything about my kids' childhoods in 10 or 20 years minutes, I'd better write it down.

2012 is going to be a big year for our family.  My brother and my cousin are both getting married in July.  My sister and brother-in-law are having a baby (it's a GIRL!) in May.  Claire will turn 5 and start Kindergarten.  Mary Grace will start 1st grade in the fall.  Jack will learn to walk, talk, and do about a thousand other things.

It's going to be a good year.  It will be a year worth remembering.  I hope you'll join us.

Happy New Year!

Wait, your brother is marrying your cousin this year? That's kind of a weird thing to publish. :)

I have lower hopes - maybe twice a week for posting. It's been much more sporadic this year - work has been been insane enough that I can't post there, which is my norm! New job, new me!

I continue blogging for three reasons: 1. I enjoy the writing exercise. 2. It's a photo journal of our life. I used to keep a written journal but it was so b.o.r.i.n.g that I could barely read any of it myself. With the photos and all, my family and friends seem to enjoy my blog which I find very rewarding. 3. Most importantly though is the reason you that I can look back and remember where we were and what we were doing because my memory is sketchy at best these days.
