Where shall I begin

I kept saying to myself  “who would want to read my blog. Probably should state right off I don’t claim to be a writer, a person of great wisdom, knowledge or talent but sometimes I surprise myself and those around me. Then I had to ask myself “what should I write about”…. Hmmm. Well here goes nothing.

I have a wonderful family which includes my hard working husband David of 32 years as of September 2010; a beautiful loving daughter Pamela who at the age of 23 graduated from Texas A&M with a BS in Health in May 2010 and has returned to school to get a nursing degree; and then there’s our loveable 14 year old sheltie, Dexter. Of course there are other loving family members like my mother, father, step parents, siblings, in-laws, and nieces and nephews. All of which may show up in my blog at some point in time.
I attended the University of Houston where I majored in Accounting but came up short of graduating. I can’t lie I had too much fun socializing and then got married. I am a Phi Mu Soroity sister alum and a Lamda Chi Alpha Fraternity little sister. When I thought about going back to school toooo much time had passed and would have required me taking almost all of my classes over. There's been a few changes in the curriculm, go figure. At this stage in my life I don’t plan on changing careers and I’m not sure of my retention or attention span which does tend to be a little short some days if non-existent. My husband would agree with the non-existent. So maybe I’ll just take some classes thru Leisure learning and quilting classes at my local quilt shops. Or maybe just practice my various hobbies. They say practice makes perfect. I'm not going for perfect but well done would be nice. Oh and finished.
I love to read, take pictures, scrapbook, sew and I attempt to quilt. So I guess my blog will follow my stitches, pictures, books and life in general.
Until next Blog.............. Keep a Smile on your face. It's Contagious!
