Goodness sakes I'm a dork. Apparently the desire to blog only hits me in January and then quickly fades. Seeing as it is now January, it's fitting that I feel like writing something here. We'll see how long it lasts. I sat down to write in my journal tonight and decided it was too much work to write in my journal and then also send an email update so I'm consolidating to justify my laziness, and am going to try to make something useful of blog.
We were reading the story of the Good Samaritan to Bailey tonight before bed and she asked why he was called a Samaritan. I said he lived in Samaria and was therefore called a Samaritan, just like she lives in American and is called an American.
Her reply: I'm an American??!!??
Me: Yes, you live in America
B: This is America??!!??
Me: Um, yes. We need a map.
B: I thought this was Utah!!
Apparently you can have the Pledge of Allegiance memorized and not realize you are an American living in America.

What has become of me? I spent zero time surfing the net, check my email every couple of days, don't IM, don't even text, and then several months ago joined facebook, but still have the same profile picture and less friends than my sister Brittany has in her cell phone, and now, after resisting for so long, I become a blogger. Why am I slightly embarrassed to accept this new identity? Not sure except that I self-righteously consider myself an anti-joiner. Then, after reading family and friends' blogs and loving them, I, through the help of Geoff and Darcie, realized it is time to get over myself and realized the joy to be in had in sharing life electronically. Thus, I, a normal, sane, unobsessed with the Internet, non-joiner, become a blogger.
