Blog Log, not to be confused with a Pecan Log……..,

……cause those are WAY yummy too!!!

No, I wanted to share today some of my favorite Blogs.  What is a Blog?

To put it as simply as possible a blog is a type of website that is usually arranged in chronological order from the most recent ‘post’ (or entry) at the top of the main page to the older entries towards the bottom.

Now that we have that out-of-the-way (oh yeah, by the way-you are reading a BLOG right now! Cute, huh?), let’s get back to the sharing. And also the story of how I became a BLOG addict.  I know-it’s a sad, sad thing.  The library misses me, People magazine is still trying to woo me back, and I ain’t giving in, and going back to reading pages made from paper and filled with senseless words, unless of course there is a #5 in the Twilight series!  The only words on paper I am reading these days are the Bible (my all-time favorite!), my two textbooks for school (oh and the new, shiny medical dictionary I got!),  my Beth Moore study and a book called The 36 Hour Day.  Ok, so I haven’t really given up READING, but I’ve slimmed down my list. I no longer feel the need to waste money actually BUYING books to read.  There is plenty of good reading online.

My initiation into the Blog world was a site called Caringbridge.  Caringbridge is a wonderful way for families to updates friends and relatives on the condition of loved ones-whether they are ill, deployed, etc. We had one for my Dad when he was ill, and my Mom when she had her open heart surgery. That way you don’t have to field a million calls a day when you’re tired and trying to spend valuable time with a sick loved one, or work.  Caring Bridge is a free site-and anyone can make one.  Then I found out about Blogs in general.  There are Blogs about everything-just Goggle it-I promise.  I’ve listed some of my favorites below-with an asterisk beside the ones that are not appropriate for kids.  Maybe it’s the “nosey” in me, I don’t know. But it’s neat to see what others are going through, have been through, and see what wisdom they can offer you if you find yourself in the same situation.

I used to have a Blogroll here on my Blog-and might redo it-but for now here they are~ city girl gone country in the biggest way-she’s a Rancher’s wife, cook, photographer and just a down to earth girl. Rancher’s Farmer’s wife-seeing a trend here? She has a VERY funny video (well-ALOT of funny videos) about how to move a swarm of bees! chick, hmmmmmmmm…. I wonder-does she really drive her tractor in pearls??’s funny-and has the cutest darn kids!  She recently moved from the Tampa area to Hotlanta-and I used to read her Blog about her youngest, Peyton, but she’s NOT SICK ANYMORE!! Yipppeee!! woman has incredible faith! And although our spiritual views differ somewhat-her faith is awe inspiring, and she would not have survived her ordeal if it weren’t for her faith in our AMAZING God! this is the sister of the one above-what she did for her sister was a true testament to LOVE. never knew anyone did this. It made me want to jump on a plane to Africa the minute I started reading about Katie and her journey. don’t update a ton, but when they do it sure is YUMMY! girls, and she loves her dogs!

** girl is so funny she’s made me almost wet my pants before, and she does use some objectionable language at times-but she is also pretty hilarious. So “No Kids Allowed” on this one.

** another one with some foul language sometimes-but OMGOSH! She just writes what some of us want to say sometimes! So “No Kids Allowed” on this one either.

And this one I found just today- will be amazed at this young woman’s strength!

Okay-that’s it for now-and that should keep you busy!

Hope everyone has a great weekend.  I don’t much planned, because you know there are actually people who laud their “busy-ness” to me on a regular basis. They must think that because I am unemployed (not by choice), I sit at home at eat bonbons all day. NOT……  There’s this taking-care-of-mom thing that I do (and just for the record-so no one thinks I am complaining-I LOVE IT!), school 3 days a week, 5 dogs, cooking, church, paying bills, balancing our ever shrinking income-and stretching it as far as it will go, studying, taking tests, oh, and a husband who is about to undergo a MAJOR right knee replacement REVISION! Yep-that’s right-the doctor is having to revise it.  You’re sure to hear more about that when it happens at the end of the month.  Oh yeah-and mix into all of that-trying to be a great wife, mother, daughter, sister and friend.  But I’m not busy or anything!

Enjoy life~
