Hello! Here I am! Usually, to do anything involving technology, I would be enlisting the aid of my children- who are far beyond me in computer skills, or my husband- who is the computermaster-he actually reads those two-pound computer manuals and writes programs...but if I'm going to step into something new I just think I should do it with confidence in myself and with courage-believing that I can figure this out for myself. So here I am, with my husband already off to work, and the kids still sleeping on this no-school day, making it work on my own!
Dusting the Corners of my Mind seemed like a very appropriate title for this blogsite, as I envision it containing whatever I am pondering on any given day. My recent/current journey and probable topics for future thought: In the past two years I have lost fifty pounds (that journey, and the long-term reality of trying to maintain a healthier and more fit lifestyle), learned I have multiple food intolerances (nothing agonizing or dramatic but they made me ill), learned to cook/live within that world (low-carb, and what we call Everything-Free: no eggs, dairy, soy, wheat, sugar, garlic, etc), have two children who have left home but come home to live and work in the summer, and two children still at home- in middle school now but one moving on to high school in the fall, have started clearing out the massive clutter that built up during my (fifteen?) years of fading health, have learned some important and exciting spiritual lessons, read many books, tried many new recipes, and continue to learn a lot about life, marriage, parenting, being a true friend, health, fitness, life, joy, and...life.
