Why blog now? In no particular order:
To amuse myself.
To record the witty, perceptive things my children say that I've usually forgotten by the end of the day.
Because my life is as ordinary, tragicomic, and filled with grace as anyone's.
Because I have so much infinite free time.
Because I'm as clever as any of the other bloggers whose work I admire:
Because I hope this becomes so wildly successful that my husband can quit his job to manage it. (Delusions of grandeur, I have none.)
