"Me too me too!
I'm not sure if this thread is still active as it is three months later, but I haven't been part of a blogging network for years and am really trying to get back into writing. I started it in 2004 so I think it might…"
"I started a blog a few weeks ago. On it I talk about investment strategies and give relationship advice, stuff like that.
No please, I'm kidding. It is probably the most useless blog on the web, but hopefully it'll be…"
I am an on-again, off-again blogger. My friend Kate (see her fab blog Nested) encouraged me to join She Writes, which I just did. I look forward to reading your blog and all of the others posted by fellow hilarious…"
"That's a great idea, Heather! I blogged yesterday for womensmemoirs.com: "I Can't Talk Now; I'm Peeling Carrots!" A (short, funny) Reflection on Multitasking, Mindfulness and Healing. I will visit you as well!"
"Hi - I'm new here, too. Great idea! Sometimes I'm funny, sometimes I'm mushy, and sometimes I'm peri menopausal. I'll follow you if you follow me and we can take a group blog tour together! Can we call it a blog crawl and…"
I was born before there were such things as minivans.
When I was 16, my parents purchased one of the first minivans to roll off Detroit's finest lines. Imagine my giddiness at getting to drive a minivan to cruise through McGaggles as a teenager! Luckily for you - my treasured readers - I've been able to retain that sarcasm that I perfected as a 16-year old driving a minivan!
Ten years later, I married The Dad and we commenced to starting a family - all the time swearing we would never own a minivan.
In 2001, I became a Momma and The Dad became a Dad. We purchased a very trendy (and very sucky) SUV, renewing our vows to never drive a minivan.
In 2004, I became a Momma for the second time. Because our sucky SUV was on it's very last tire, we had begun the process of purchasing a new vehicle. Hormones got the best of me, and we were searching for a minivan. As I held my newborn daughter for the first time, the delivery room phone rang and the bank had approved our application for a new car loan. And they sent their congratulations!
When Daughter 2 was 2 days old, I nursed her while sitting on a toilet of a minivan dealer showroom. Three hours later, we drove away in a minivan. Hormones got the best of me again, and I bawled the entire way home. Not because we were driving a minivan. Not because we were a complete family with two beautiful daughters. Not because I was utterly exhausted from giving birth just two days before. I was bawling because by the time we left, The Olive Garden was closed and I was really jonesin' for some salad.
The rest, as they say, is history... or - according to The Dad - hearsay!
