Gonna Give This Try
Well, I have been thinking about starting a blog for some time. I figure it might just be the best way to keep in touch with family and friends. I guess I will figure this out as I go. I love to write and I almost always have something to say. The trick will be trying to find the time to do this as I have my hands full already with three little ones. S is almost 4, R is almost 2 and J is 9 weeks. We have Celiac disease in our family so I cook gluten free and dairy free. Which basically means that I have to do everything from scratch and there is no such thing as convenience foods or eating out. Fortunately I love to cook so it isn't a huge issue. I also started cloth diapering this week. Sure wish I would have done this with S. There is definitely a learning curve with this and it is more time consuming but I feel good about it and love it so far. Sometimes I look at my life as it is now and I can't believe it. I am such a different person than I was only 5 years ago. If I were to meet myself 5 years ago I am quite sure I wouldn't like me. Five years ago I thought I was happy. But there was always a feeling of hmmm... yearning I guess. I was always looking for that thing that would make me happy. I had no clue what real happiness was. Now I know. I am busier than I have ever been in my life but I also have never been happier. In this blog I hope to write about my family, my new adventures in living green and gluten free and dairy free cooking. I expect there will be much to be said about Celiac disease as it is a big part of our daily lives. As I write this I realize that this blogging thing could be addictive. I should stop for now, life is calling.
