Where I'm At, Part...Ah, Who the Hell Knows At This Point.

When I first started writing this blog, I did it for the kids. It was a way to keep them in my life from halfway across the country. But now both my daughters are here, and my son is too busy reading his textbooks to read the blog. So I've lost my intended audience, and with it, I feel like I've lost my voice.

So I've taken a few days to think about what I want this blog to look like. Do I want it to have more of a focused intent? Why do I need to have an online diary of our lives, when the reason I was writing it was so Carrie and Robbie could stay connected?

I haven't yet come to ground with answers to either of those questions, but I suspect I'll be much more of a hit-or-miss blogger for a while. We've got a ton of summer stuff going on outside, and I'm happy to get outside and enjoy the good weather while it's still good. So while I get oriented to my new reality, I thought I'd leave you all with a picture of MelonKiwi, because he's so darned cute that I pity anyone who's not lucky enough to live with him and his pretty pink nose.
And now, as usual...I gotta run.

Well, we just heard from Carrie that the state of Illinois should pay us to blog. It appears we've suckered at least four people we know into moving back here, and who knows how many countless, nameless others who slunk back without giving us credit?

Welcome back Hannah and Dustin!!!

Oh ... and Illinois? You owe us a finder's fee.

I would miss you terribly if you gave up blogging, although I will not be moving back to Illinois. Maybe if you really got a finder's fee, I'd consider it.
