Start me up!

Welcome to the first post of this blog. I hope that I can make you laugh at the goofiness that ensues at my house and with my friends. You will read soon about my inability to clean my house without first reading every magazine that I encounter (see, I should throw the magazine away to clear the clutter. This is Flylady 101 stuff; everyone knows this! -- but I haven't read it yet . . . so by reading the magazine, I am actually making necessary progress toward cleaning my house. It's very simple, really). Or about my fabulous, gorgeous, brilliant children. And what slobs they are (the gene for this is very strong in my family). And about the joys of home renovation when 1) I'm very cheap; and 2) I'm very lazy.

My friends are not off the hook: you know what's coming. One performed a highly illegal act in a cemetery. With her grandmother. And one gets more done in an hour than most of us get done in a day -- and more than I get done in a month. I hate her, in a Christ-like way. My friends are the smartest, funniest people I know.

So -- let's get this bad boy started, shall we?


  1. Liz -
    I was feeling all bad that I didn't know you had a blog until I noted that it is brand new! I linked to it from your comment to my blog. Have fun with the blogosphere. I am finding it quite liberating to blab my thoughts to the whole planet. Yours looks like fun. I read magazines to get inspired to clean, like "Gee, if I only cleaned, my house could look like that picture."

  2. Thanks, Maureen! I've wanted to start blogging for a while, and finally decided that thinking about it wasn't making it happen. Reading good blogs is very motivating -- so I'm grateful to you!

    I read lots of books and magazines about how to get organized and de-clutter, and I feel so tired after reading them that I need to take a break and lie down.

  3. Honey. That hole needs a plan immediately! Screw weighing your options and gathering data. It's time to deal with it! You'll feel better when you get it done, and no need to blog about your guilt on the issue! This will leave time to blog about necessary topics, like celbrity gossip, literature, raising warped kids, new words we found, etc.
