Several weeks ago I started a web site to help keep family and friends up to date with our lives and pending adoption. We also want to be able to keep everyone posted when we travel to China early in 2006 to bring our new baby, Olivia home. Well, the web site is nice but a chore to keep updated. Is this thing supposed to be a chore? Well, no it is supposed to be one mother's ramblings about her adorable AND rambunctious 3 year old and the quest for another Slowey kidlet. So, I am trying a blog.
As of a few months ago I had to listen to NPR (my favorite radio station) to even find out what the heck a blog is. See, I used to be "up" on technology when I worked outside the home as a business consultant. I used to make a point of being friendly with my fellow co-workers who were programmers and technicians, and they would keep me up to date on what was new in the world. Well, now my world is Gymboree, Dora the Explorer, and daily refusals to eat green things. All fine, but not conducive to technology education.
So, I am playing with a blog, learning as I go. I will try to keep you up to date with our continuing saga of life with Ava, who is 3 1/2, and Olivia who is probably born but somewhere in China living with foster parents or in an orphanage until she can be matched with us, and Brian...he's the main muffin man husband. Stay with us...we appreciate encouragement.
