I'm just sayin'

I told a friend I was waning on my blogging. I warned you...I knew it would happen. I told her I needed a I have one. What is the new craze/trend with saying (or typing to my facebook friends) "I'm just sayin'?" I don't get it. Obviously, you're just sayin' because you said it. Can anybody weigh in on this topic?

I think that is all I have to say to a east coaster to get their heads a spinnin'. we have had record amounts of snow here. kids have the week off, dad's home from work, and mom's been scrapbooking. we stocked up at the grocery store. all is good. thank you to all the slow plowers....get ready...round 2 just started! stay warm!

Should couples (who are also parents) make time for a week long getaway?

I have always thought it was a good idea to have a getaway with my husband in honor our anniversary. Some years it was a day, some years a weekend, and some years (like 10 and 15) a week. My thoughts are that if you nourish your time with your spouse while the kids are growing, you will, hopefully, still have that spark when those kids are grown...and gone. And also, just because it's fun to getaway. Well, our anniversary is coming up in a couple months and we are planning a week long trip. Sometimes, if I mention that I am planning a "getaway" with my husband, I feel like I get "flack" for it. I'm still going to plan my getaways as long as I can, but I wonder how others feel about going away for a week with your spouse, but without your children?

Here we go...

alright. this is my first attempt at a blog. I don't know how often I will post. I tend to get really excited about things (like making a website) and then the excitement tends to die down or life happens and I forget. so, I will make a goal to myself to try to post once a week, and maybe give a funky fact or something. first attempt: a quirky bit of information about me...I like to type in lowercase...except "I's" I always make them uppercase.
