Hello blogging world

After much consideration I have decided to join the world of blogging. I found Facebook was just not enough for me. I want to say more than my "status" can contain. So here I am, on a rare free Tuesday, starting a blog. I don't know what exactly I want to say or write. This first entry I think I'll just write whatever I feel like.
In three weeks, I'll gain a new sister-in-law, who not only shares my last name, but my first as well. That will be quite an adjustment. It is one I'm willing to make. She is great and my brother is completely besotted. I have been blessed already with an awesome sister-in-law and I can't wait to add another to my... collection.
For years, after learning about my lack of sisters and my abundance of brothers, people have sympathized "with" me because I never had the joy of sisterhood. Well, I laugh at them now. Here is my chance to get a sister that I didn't have to grow up with. Sure my knowledge of how girls are is stilted and my understanding of boy-girl relationships is rather... unsteady, but I have an advantage. A chance to create those sisterly bonds without the drama, issues, and any other crap that comes with sisters. I find it rather ideal.
So, I've run out of things I want to say now. But I feel this is a good start. Hopefully, as I go on with this, I will be able to write things that are, perhaps more interesting for others to read. Although I don't really care if you read this. It's mostly a release for me. So... if you keep reading... good for you, but I won't take it personally if you stop. After all, keeping a blog is a rather narcissistic thing to do. And if you don't know what "narcissistic" means... LOOK IT UP!
