This blog is a lot about me. Sure, there may be some anecdotes about you guys now and again, but the whole purpose of this blog is to celebrate me doing things I want to do. I know you support this endeavor, but just in case there is every any confusion, let me set the record straight.
To my amazing husband: You married the person I was almost nine years ago. And yes, while I agree that I have become oh so much better with age, as have you, there still were a lot of things about nine-years-ago me that were awesome. So I'm trying to get to a blend of them both, kind of a Me 2.0. I know that you like this idea and want me to continue, but just to be clear, this is not an escape from anyone or anything. You know that more than anyone, I suppose, because you are a part of, or right next to, all of the activities that I write about. Assuming that you read them. Sorry, just couldn't resist that one. A joke filled with love :)
And then there is you, Hoosier. Not to worry, you have not been forgotten, though I think we all know you spend a little more time watching and waiting for us than any of us would like. You were the first baby of this family, albeit a fuzzy one, and even though you're not quite the crazy pup you used to be, you're still always going to be our first puppy. As soon as this whole exercise topic improves, you will definitely benefit from that too, because there's a big world out there with all kinds of paths to be sniffed.
Even without enough exercise, time to read, time to cook, etc etc, I am definitely a much better version of me than I was nine years ago. That version didn't have the three of you. I had NO idea what was coming. Wonder what the eight-years-in-the-future version of me has in store?
