More about me later

I just discovered this whole blogging thing about a month ago. I’d heard of blogs, but never ventured to read one until I joined a Yahoo! Group in which some of the posters have them. So this is what all the hoopla is about! Pretty cool. Hey! Why don’t I start a blog?! I have stories to tell: amusing anecdotes, sad tales, opinions, young kids who do and say the darndest things, and interests that might put me in touch with like minded people. I asked DH what he thought about me starting a blog. Still waiting for an answer. I guess I’ll be writing about whatever is on my mind that day. Hopefully I’ll be more motivated to blog than I have been about writing in my journal.
Bite the butt is kind of a term of endearment at my house. Whenever one of the girls says or does something adorable I say, “Come here and let me bite the butt!” Sometimes the butt gets (pretend) bitten, others she’ll squeal and run away covering her tiny hiney with an itty bitty hand. Other times I say I’m gonna eat them up. Occasionally I’ll hold one squirmy girl in my arms while DH, her sister and I discuss which body part we’re gonna eat. Mommy: “I’m gonna eat the elbows and the knee caps.” Daddy: “I’m gonna eat the nose, the forehead and the toes.” Sister: “I want the belly button!”
I plan to home school, so that journey will be documented. I love all kinds of crafts, so perhaps I’ll post pics of my creations. Personal finance is a subject that is often on my mind, so you’ll probably be reading about our journey in that area, too.
I want to get comments, suggestions, ideas. I’m sure there’s such a thing as blogging etiquette, so feel free to educate me.
