The Blog World

Why do I blog? I'm not sure, because my life is pretty boring, and I don't ever feel like I have anything interesting to say. But I love blogs, so I joined the blog world.
How did I get into blogs? I first found blogs this summer. When my friend Lauren's baby was diagnosed in utero with CDH, I wanted to find out what it was. In a google search, I ran across a blog for a baby with CDH, and I read it from the first post to the last. That blog is . I still read it almost every day and am amazed by her parent's strength and faith in God. From that blog, I found another baby's blog. He was from Birmingham, Al, which caught my attention. His family's blog is . From there, I found MckMama....a great blog that is hilarious and heart tugging at the same time. And then, from there, I found Bring the Rain, . Another blog I read from beginning to end and cried and cried throughout. All of these blogs had a baby's life threatening illness in common, but more than that, they all are stories of great I don't think I could have in their situations.
From my "cry my eyes out" blogs, I found Boo and Big Mamas. They are sooooooo funny! and . Good ole Texas girls! From them, I found on the very day that Kelly was giving birth to her miracle, Harper. Amazingly, my funny blogs took me right to another heart tugging life threatening baby blog!
From Kelly's blog, I found the jackpot! I found blogs of women with a love for homemaking and decorating. I finaly found my place in the blog world, lol. With each new blog, I find links to other blogs, and I can spend hours reading blogs and looking at the things these women have created in their homes. Hours that I should be spending taking care of my own home, I'm sure.
But of all of the blogs that I love (and there are many, obviously) my favorites are the blogs of the people I know.
I love Stephanie's and Roxanne's and Hollie's, and Lauren's .
If you read this, and you have a blog, please let me know...I'm sure I'll love reading yours too!

Snow Day (minus the snow)

Sunday, it SNOWED! It snowed quite a bit, but it was very wet here, so it didn't stick for long. I've seen lots of pics my friends took, and there was enough to play in. How fun! My kids played in the snow (together, without fighting). I watched Paige in the driveway dancing in the snow. I'm not sure which is the bigger miracle...snow in middle ga on March 1st or Paige dancing after the injury she had. Hallelujah!
I stayed up til 11 waiting and holding my breath that we wouldn't have school today. Every county that touches ours called off school by 9pm. I finally got the phone call at 5:45 am. As much as I appreciated that call, I would have appreciated it even more last night so that I could have slept late.
Today has been a nice, lazy day. I wish I had counted how many loads of laundry I did Sunday and Monday. I bought new sheets and towels, so I washed all the new stuff, then I washed all the old stuff we took off the beds. Plus the kids were forced to clean their rooms, really clean them, not just hide the stuff, so I got all kinds of laundry from that. But other than laundry, I haven't done much. I spent most of the morning reading blogs. There are some really creative people out there...I want to be one of them!
Tomorrow, it's back to work...for two days, then Thursday we go back to Alpharetta to the dr. Heath and Andrea are coming Thursday night. I have to work Friday, of course, then it'll be the weekend again! WOO HOO! It's gonna be a good started with snow!
