Laying Fear Aside


Hello blogger world.....
 
I would first like to thank CA Girl for her help in getting my blog spot started and for also helping me learn all the lingo..(please bare with me as I do not retain information as I used to)....I am (was) VERY excited and looking forward to starting a hobby of sorts that will be "MINE". Before I started I made the grave error of reading (now following) several talented bloggers..... I became dumb struck with insecurities and well quite honestly overwhelmed with the feeling that I couldn't possibly write anything close to what I have read....I then knew  I was going to need a serious block of "quiet" time (a task hard to come by in my house hold) to even come close to looking like I know what I am doing..I of course want to come off as someone who is quite intelligent and witty..a few more days went by and here I am....still sitting.... staring at a blank screen!!!
   Until this evening when my daughter asked what I was doing..I explained to her that I was attempting to write my first blog.....ok so between you me and well my daughter what I really did was whine... To which she kindly and in so many words told me to get over myself and just WRITE!!!!!
 
So here it goes my first blog.....(which I am told needs to be a "introduction" of sorts)
My name is Lorraine, I am married to a great dependable and stand by me sort of guy whose name is Rex...I am in my 40's and entering the phase of "empty nester" sooner then I want it....Children??? Yes we have 3....Nineteen years ago the Lord blessed me with one beautiful (of course) daughter, whom I named Kathryn aka Katie, she will be graduating high school this June (2011)...I also have 2 step children who I helped raise and are now out on their own Steven (25) and Shelly (21). Rex and I were blessed beyond measure when Shelly and her husband Corey became parents for the first time November 24, 2010.....Ella Jayne was born!!.......I can now proudly add the title of "Grandparent" to my long list of qualified names!  You are sure to read lots about her as she just melts me! I enjoy scrap booking, reading, crocheting, taking pictures, card and board games bar-b-ques and most importantly spending time with my family.
 
Whew I did it...wasn't so bad after all...I look forward to getting to know you all making new friends and rediscovering the joy of writing
Blessings
Lorraine

Visiting from CA Girls! Very cute blog. And watch out, you'll get addicted! :)

Isn't Lourie the greatest? I was directed here from her blog and can't wait to get to know you better. Honestly, don't compare your blog to other peoples'. If everyone did that, very few people would blog. Just write what is in your mind and your heart! Good luck!
