Confessions of a Cyberstalker

Okay, I'll admit it, I've been perusing through the blogosphere for a couple months now living vicariously through others...commenting only on one (my BFF from high school- American in Norway). So if any one has been noticing a person from central Florida peeking in, it's probably been me. Don't be concerned, I am not dangerous; mearly curious and now addicted and enthralled.
I've been encouraged to contribute by my incredibly talented literary husband and also my aforementioned, BFF. But there is a problem...a huge problem...my life is nowhere near as interesting nor am I as funny as some of the others out there...(not to mention grammar and writing are not my strong suites!!!). But then I decided what the hell, why not...it would be a great way to post pictures of the kids for out of town family and friends to see...and they can also see how I've slowly started to slip down that slippery slope of insanity that seems to affect the female members of my family...but I'll write about that at a different time...For now, I'll introduce you to the clan...Please see my pic on the right...it's a blurry, far away pic...I don't allow a lot of pictures being taking of me these days due to the baby weight I have yet to take off (but I am currently working on that...more on that obsession later also).

My better half (some days) is a private person...and prefers that I do not post a picture of him so I'll respect his wishes (for now). We've been married for 13 years and we are struggling through parenthood, middle class American lifestyle as a team...he's a great support system and wouldn't trade him for the world.

This is my first born, Cameron...She is 9 going on 15. She is a sweet little girl with a temper to match. She wears her heart on her sleeve (read: can be EMOTIONAL!!), but she is mine all mine!!!
This is Emmy, our little monkey...She is my funny, quirky, middle child. She has such a kind heart and is very friendly. She is also very ACTIVE!! and can be frustrating at times, but again, she is all mine!!!

Finally, we have Jack...The Dude, Bubba, The Boy...What a joy it is to have this little guy around...he also, is a funny kid with loads of facial expressions. He loves to explore his world, run, and figure out how things work.

So, thanks for dropping in...more to come...

Kelly

Yea! You did it! You write beautifully...& use so many big words that I can't even dream of coming up with... I write on an 8th grade level....maybe cause i still act like that! (you always were the smart one) You have lots of funny tales to share...when your mind goes blank...you can always write about the trouble we used to get into ! Love you!

Welcome to the blogosphere! I am pretty new myself...and I am so addicted. Of course, it's my daily adult interaction...so maybe it's a necessary vice?

Looking forward to future tomes on dieting, procrastination, and motherhood...

Hi Kelly! Welcome to blogland! I just started my blog recently too (like less than 2 mos.)--it's fun! Your kids are gorgeous--I'll be back to your blog!

Andrea said...

I found you from the BFF (whom I recently found from The Perlman Update whom I found from.. the list goes on :)
I think blogging is a wonderful way to get out the weird that happens in life. And it is very addictive!
The fun part is you can write whatever you want, it's your blog. I look forward to reading more.

Hi Kelly! And welcome to blog-land. I started (officially) in April of this year and became addicted VERY quickly. LOL! And remember, it's not about entertaining your audience, it's about writing what YOU are interested in and feel. As long as you enjoy your blog, others will enjoy it right along with you! Looking forward to getting to know you better. :-)

Hi Kelly,

This is the 21st century version of the quilting bee...but it's sooo much more fun!
I've been cyberlurking your BFF's blog for several days and found your blog through hers. She's a stitch, even through all of the trauma drama. (she & family are on prayer list)
Congrats on starting your very own blog! My blog OK OK not MINE, it's under Mr. Jack's name, I'm Linda...is visible but EMPTY. Looking forward to seeing/hearing more on yours!

Shannon said...

Hi Kelly! Welcome from a fellow newbie... I just started my own blog about a week ago!

Looking forward to reading more :)

This looks like a good start-- your pictures look great! Mine look so amateurish by comparison.

Karen said...

Hi Kelly, Welcome to blogland. I'm fairly new to it as well. Started last year but have only really got into it n the last couple of months.

You have three lovely kiddies there. Knowing kids, there is probably going to be plenty you can write about :-)

I have two girls, and a boy, and they sound very similar to yours!


PS: I came from the american in norway (just in case you were wondering).
