Bigfoot St. Louis (2009) + Experiment #1

***********************************

I'm still experimenting here with what kind of posts I'd like to do on Fridays, so bear with me. I have two ideas for things I can do, and I'm going to alternate doing each one for a few weeks to see what I like best.

And you're in luck! Because the first idea I have is the ultimate in navel gazing. (And you thought this blog couldn't possibly be any more about me, me, me! And my husband and my kids! ... You were wrong!)

Maybe now would be a good time to say that I'm actually a very private person, and would never presume to assume that everyone (anyone?) finds my life and my kids fascinating. In fact, if you were to talk to me in person, I would probably never even mention all of the things I post on my blog.

BUT, I just one day thought, "You know there are people who read absolute drivel every day on the internet ... they may as well be reading my drivel!"

And a blog was born.

The truth is I wish my friends posted on their blogs every day. I honestly wish that they would; I would love to read it.

And because you can't force other people to do what you want, you sometimes just have to do what you wish other people would do instead. So, basically, this blog is a blog that I would read.

That's why I'm going to have to try these two ideas for a few weeks. We'll see how much I enjoy reading them.

Anyway, back to the task at hand ... , my first idea is to post some of my old journal entries, and for my first installment I'm going to include my very first journal entry ever from 1984 when I was 7 (spelling and punctuation unedited).

Aug 22, 1984 Today I am 7. I have long hair. I have green blue eyes. I have 2 brothers and 1 sister. I like to play Shutes and ladders. My best friend is Natalie. Do you LiKe her? I am going to school Next week. I Will be in 2th grade. My best book is Mr. Poppers penguins.
Hmmmmm ... Thrilling?? Idea #2 up next week.

Have a great weekend!
