I have enjoyed reading other's blogs so much (especially Merry K's, Drewe Llyn's, Dawn B's, and my 2nd daughter's best friends blog) that I finally have been inspired to start blogging. Actually, I kept wanting to post on Merry K's BETH SPERA IN DOMINO and being frustrated when I couldn't ask her questions or make comments so this finally motivated me enough to just do it! Also, my 2nd dd has wanted to blog for a long time but we hesitated letting her for all those reasons we paranoid parents come up with. Now I can let her write away on my blog.

We also have bajillions of friends and family scattered all over the planet and though I try my darnedest to keep in touch, I don't always do as well as I would like. Hopefully, this will keep my dear ones a little bit better informed on what's going on in the home of this wacky but loving homeschool family.

And in case you're wondering about the name of my blog, let's just say that I'm awfully glad that its GOD's GOODNESS that counts and not mine. I'm learning to dwell in Graceland and I'm not talking about the one with the pink cadillac parked out front!

Thanks for reading my debut attempt at blogging. Look forward to sharing my life with you...and having another opportunity to work on self-discipline (in this case, not spending too much time in front of my pc screen).

Thanks, Heather. Is this where I post my comment to you or do I do it by clicking on your name. Hmmm...still trying to figure all this out. I'm afraid til I do, my postings will be pretty lame. :(

Hey, Elysa!!!!!!! How exciting to see you blogging!!!!!!!! (I knew you couldn't hold out much longer!)
Welcome to the Blogsphere! I look forward to reading about all your adventures.

Thanks for posting, Drewe Llyn! I'm following in your example, oh Great One!

I enjoyed clicking over and reading your profile as well. But reading it made me realize that I forgot to post that I loved watching movies while eating PoPcOrN! I dated a guy in highschool who took me to the movies and didn't buy me any popcorn. I broke up with him shortly afterwards. It was just the straw that broke THAT camel's back!:( Poor guy.....he didn't realize that he was dealing with an irrational, popcorn-addict.

I don't know about breaking up over lack of popcorn. Now, if it had been lack of chocolate........... well, that's another matter all together. *grin*
