OK – so I am on my fourth, FOURTH, post – and the first one doesn’t even count because it is about 3 sentences long. And, already – I don’t know what to write about. 

I don’t know how you bloggers do it. The ones I read, I must say, are very talented – and that is probably why I read them.  There are probably many more bloggers out there, like me, that had an inspiration one day, wrote about it – and then Kaput!  But, I’m not giving up.  That inspiration has to come to me again someday, right?  So, I am going to keep chugging along.  And, maybe one day in the future I will get the hang of this and go back and hit “delete, delete, delete” on all these entries. And, that’s ok. I am authorized to delete my own blog, right? 

Until then, I am going to complain about my husband’s keyboard.  See, he is a programmer – and so he types a lot, both at work and at home.  So, we have one of these ergonomic keyboards at home – so he doesn’t get carpotunnel (sp?).  And, don’t get my wrong – I do not want him to get carpotunnel – but you have no ides how many times I have had to hit the backspace while writig this.  It drives me crazy.  Here is a link to the keyboard I am currently typing on…


Doesn’t look that annoying, does it?  That is what I thought – UNTIL I HAD TO TYPE ON IT.  This thing better makes sure that my husband does not need hand surgery any time soon – or it is being thrown against the wall and being replaced with a nice old fashioned keyboard.

So – you see how bad the writer’s block has gotten (and am I even allowed to call myself a writer?  I gess I could call it random-typer’s block)?  I am writing about a device that is giving me a hard time typing out the thoughts that I AM NOT HAVING.  Hopefully I wll have better ideas next time.


Home – Where the Will is

October 30, 2009

Will came home sick yesterday around 1:00.  We took a nap and I made chicken soup for dinner.  He went back into the office today – early, actually.  It is a miserable day here today.  Cold, rainy, and dark.

Sometimes I look around my house – and I am so thankful.  We don’t live in a big house.  But it is nice and home-y and ours.  And, to be honest – Will made it all possible.  I only stopped working 6 weeks ago.  But, Will made this whole life that we have possible.  A life – that I love.  And, one that we talked about in his dorm room when we finally figured out – Yeah – this is forever.

He made me promises early on.  BIG promises.  And, he is working SO HARD to make every one come true.  I love him for that.  I hope I don’t disappoint.

That – and he is pretty easy on the eyes, too.

Let’s try again…

October 29, 2009

I have officially deleted my first post.  It was up for a day – and now it is down.  It is kinda harder than I thought – putting yourself out here like this.  Yesterday I got this WANT to write something – and so I did.  And, I thought it was pretty good.  At the time…  And, then you go back and read – and you question if it is really something you want to stand behind.  When you work – like in an office – you are told “this is good” “good job”.  Not that I am trying to make this my job.  I’m not.  But, the validation isn’t here.  I have gone 6 years with that validation.  Or, in some cases, reprimand.  But, at least I knew.  This is new territory for me.  Or at least newer.  I know I used to have no problem throwing myself out there.  And, that what THIS is probably somewhat about.  I have been a good banker, wife – but somewhere I lost the person I was.  So, I am going to hit the publish button – and hope I won’t delete this.  Anya-marks – get set – go!

Now that I have googled “anyamark” – I am realizing that it may have not been the smartest choice of names

There are, apparently, many people with the names “Anya” and “Mark” that get married – and register for gifts.  But, now that I chose it – I still kinda like the name…
