Brand New Countertops

Our new countertops finally arrived yesterday after a 2 month wait. The guy called and said that it would take about 3 hours to install, so about 7 1/2 hours later they were done. I have never been so glad to have people leave my house. They do look wonderful, though. They are Silestone Amarillo Palmira (look it up) and they make the cabinets look so warm and nice. I was working on cleaning the kitchen and putting things back in the proper cabinets until about 11:15 last night. Sometimes the organization freak thing can be bad.

Now I am scared of the World Wide Web

I sent out a note to trusted friends and loving family to tell them that I had started this blog. My dad apparently checked it out and sent me a note that I needed to be "very careful". Now, that's all I can think about in regards to this blog. So, if you are an Internet predator or someone trying to steal my identity, back off!! Dads are really good at scaring the bejeebies out of you. I still lock my doors in the car for fear of being carjacked. You make a good point, though. I will be careful. Love you, Daddy!!

Is honesty the best policy?

So, I am a new blogger and I have questions. My friend Michelle showed my how to set up my blog, and has a great one of her own. She told me that people (specifically her mom) have been upset by things she has written in her blog. Michelle is always honest and feels that it would be wrong to lie in her writings.

I am torn. I feel like since this is my blog and my thoughts that I should be totally honest. At the same time, I think that if I would not reveal my true feelings to a person's face (as I am a chicken in real life) is it fair for me to publish these feelings on the web? I would not right intentionally mean things about a specific person. I would discuss how his or her actions made me feel. Again, if I would not discuss those feelings of anger or disappointment with them, can I or should I write them down? In a way, this blog would be boring if I only related the things that happen to me on a day to day basis without discussing the emotions behind the events. So, what should I do? Let me know what you think. Time will tell if honesty is the best policy.

I am a daughter

Well, of course I am a daughter! I would have to be one given that I am a female.

I am the daughter of Ralph, the step daughter of Bunny, and the step sister of Jamie with me to the left. Dad got re-married on December 31 of 2005 in Pittsburgh. I am happy for him. Bunny truly seems to love him and they match up well in terms of personalities. Dad just moved from our hometown to Boston. I am sad to see him go, but it was inevitable.

Meet my husband and pooch

Time to update my blog on this rainy Monday. Well, I guess the best place to start is to ask - who am I? Well, I am a 30 something married female with a full time job. Sound exciting? There's more. I have a wonderful husband named Bill, and a fantastic dog named Samantha. See above for their beautiful faces. They are the most important people/creatures in my life. They will (I'm sure) be the subject of many blog posts, so I might as well introduce them now. Aren't they adorable? Well, I love them with all my heart.
