Today I followed the lead of many of my cyber-savvy friends and started a blog. When my husband asked me why, I responded, "Well, I'm about done with grad school." Monday is my last class, Wednesday my last final, and my graduation ceremony will be held next Tuesday. I am looking forward to having time to make choices: write what I feel the need to write, read what I want to read, and listen to what I choose to listen to. A new independence! So, welcome, book clubs (anyone interested in starting one with me?), blogging and finally getting to spend more than 1 1/2 hours with my daughter every week day. It has been a long time coming, and I'm finally here.
