While trying to develop my technology skills for the classroom I have come across so many neat 'techie' things I had only overheard high school babysitters talk about. I now know a few friends who have their own blogs and I thought I should give it a try. Though I am not a shy person by nature...I can say I won't be sharing my address with friends and loved ones for a while. My idea regarding this blog is...if I write it...maybe it will come. IT may change from day to day. IT may be a dream I have...IT may be a goal I have set, and once I've 'published' it I will feel it is more important to attain. Mostly, I have enjoyed watching my daughter develop as a writer. She has terrible spelling skills-she gets that from me-but she has a wonderful imagination. I'd like to think she gets that from me as well, though I know I have let go of parts of my creative brain. I wonder if I have sacrificed my creative nature to try and achieve goals. My guess is though, if I spent more time nurturing those creative juices...that I would find more pleasure in my day-to-day life. I realized a short time ago that when asked by almost anybody, "How are you today?" That my response wasn't -Fabulous, Great or even Good...it usually was "Tired, Sick or Grouchy." Those are words that don't 'suit' the real me...so I am going in search of a brighter outlook!
