You're About to be Redirected to the New Home of Ground Control to Major Mom: Is this thing on?

Is this thing on?

So...after all this time of enjoying other peoples' blogs, Dave (my Weather Warrior husband) convinced me that setting up my own blog might be long overdue. After all, I've suggested other people start blogs, I've incessantly called Dave over to look at other people's blogs, my sister has a really cool one (a plug for my sister: Living in the Material World!), etc.

Actually Dave put it this way: "You're always sitting at that thing [the computer], I'm sure you have lots of things to put in a blog!".

He's right...I spend a LOT of time at the computer, and the efforts I've put into the wireless networking and file sharing in the house were all just so that I can continue to e-mail friends and surf the web while still being a decent mother. This meant not spending all my time in the computer room, instead putting our very old (circa 2000) laptop in the kitchen.

See on the counter on the left side of the picture? That's the laptop, taking up valuable food preparation space.

Sometimes it's good -- many of the other neighborhood Moms will send out "Let's go to the park" e-mails which I can receive quickly, sometimes it's bad -- letting the pasta overcook because I'm IMing a friend!

My point is: I did it -- I set up a real blog, and my next task is to somehow link my Picasa albums so that I don't have to duplicate efforts.

Neat! When will you plug me to start blogging? Pretty much that's what my nightly picture e-mails from Picasa are.

Welcome to the blog universe!

When I started my blog back in April I felt a lot more creative with my writing than I do these days. Hrm... I think I'm on the upswing these days though. My husband writes to his blog EVERYDAY! It's in Japanese though ;0)

Major Mom,
That ice cream you are eating in your photo... would that be at the Penn State Creamery? Is that a Penn State blue jersey you are wearing? Then you have to check out RollTide!
