first post

Well, I’m blogging. Whether this is a good thing or not is yet to be seen. I’m hoping that this will be a place for my rants and raves. I suppose you’re wondering about the title. It’s a little thing between my daughter and me; I say, “Hey Peanut Butter, where’s Jelly?” and she laughs.

Where to begin? I think that is the hardest part of blogging. What do you start with? I guess I’ll just ramble off the top of my head.

Fourteen days, that’s when my Peanut Butter turns one. I can’t believe it’s been a whole year. It has gone way too fast. She’s a little mover, ever since she started walking she has been going nonstop. I have a feeling she may be a gymnast or something. She’s always trying to get higher, do somersaults, and lately it seems like she’s trying to do handstands. The ladies at daycare think she might be a star in the X Games because of all the crazy things she tries. She does try and use her car like a skateboard sometimes. Just as long as she doesn’t try that one jump, that I’m sure everyone’s seen where the guy just does a free fall after his skateboard gets away from him. Yikes!! I can’t believe he didn’t get hurt worse than he did.

This is our last weekend of tournament baseball and we’re hosting. I really enjoy watching the boys, but it gets to be a long summer going somewhere every weekend for baseball and since J(my husband) coaches, it’s every week night too for practices and league games. The tournament team is a bit like the Bad News Bears, they could be so good, but something just always goes wrong. It’s heartbreaking and frustrating all at the same time. I hope they pull it together this weekend. It’s supposed to be in the 90’s, so it will be HOT. I’ll probably walk down to the fields, so I’ll be sweating. Hopefully I can get some photos of the boys. It gets hard chasing the girl while trying to take pictures. Wednesday night she found the dugout and kept trying to run on in there. It could be she just kept hearing her daddy yelling and wanted to find him.

Well, how’s that for my first post. I don’t want to ramble on too much. I haven’t figured out the whole protocol on how long is too long, so I’ll sign off here.

Way to Go! I think it takes alot of courage to post your first blog. Courage that I don't have yet...I recently created a blog, but am finding myself hesitant about what to post. Your post was great! I'm not sure if what I wrtie or would write would be interesting to anyone reading it...I'm just a single gal, who works alot and spends a lot of time with family and friends.

Coming across your blog has given me a little more courage...thank you!
