where am i going with this blog?

I so don't know what to do with this blog anymore. The writer (writer???) in me wants to continue writing...something... but the realist in me recognizes that i don't have much of interest to write about. And what i do find interesting, i probably can't write, because it probably is about our marriage group or about my anger management group. They are hilarious, the angry ladies. We continued meeting together weekly, even though we finished our anger class. Now we're doing a book called Choosing to Forgive, and we named ourselves Steel Magnolias. Well, i didn't choose that name and i didn't even vote for it, but it didn't matter. One husband said, it's more like lead-in-the-ass magnolias, which is probably somewhat true. Mostly i just refer to them as magnolias. My family has already accepted the name and hopefully no longer think i'm totally weird by having a group of friends who've named ourselves. Well, it was just to weird too continue referring to each other as "my anger mgmnt group", so magnolias, it is.

My middle daughter is getting married at the end of the month. I may kill her before the big day. That probably figures into anger management somehow.

I'm in the summer term of school, only the fall term left to finish my AA degree. I'm pretty worried about the financial strain it's putting on our home. Our goal is for me to continue going and work towards a bachelors. Maybe before I'm 50, I can really finish. Sometimes I feel like a good example to our children. Sometimes I just feel like a loser.

I'm taking a philosophy of religion class. It's broadening my horizons and confusing me. All at the same time.

My dog is still dead in the backyard. I can't believe how much I still miss him.

I can't cook worth a damn, but I'm trying.

This is kind of like my own little post secret segment.

I started running again. Yes, I'm planning to call myself a runner again. I'm tired of being a blob. I want to feel good in my clothes. I want to feel good in my skin.

that's all.

The secret to blogging is that you should blog for yourself. Don't worry about anything else. Don't even worry if anyone is reading your blog. Just write what you want to remember.

What Tom P says!

On that note, I've decided to shut mine down. I'll explain some of my reasons in a later post, but suffice it to say, the purpose of my blog has basically gone away!

Tom, that's awesome advice - to write what I want to remember. And truthfully, I think the only people who read it are you and Patience! ha!

Patience, I'd read on your blog that you were gonna quit it. Does that mean he's staying clean now? I sure hope it does. Does it also mean you'll start a new blog? I sure hope it does!

What Tom said. It sounds like your life is very busy at the moment - and when my life gets like that, I either write a lot as a stress reliever, or not at all because I'm just to whacked to do it. Depends on the mood.

I don't come over often because I know you don't write often, but I do check in about once a month.
