So I've been thinking about what I want to make this blog about. I decided I can't be a book blogger because it takes me too long to finish a book and I write crap reviews. Which led me to think maybe I should blog about my wife and mother duties. But that's not very exciting. I tried to blog about my crafting hobby. That didn't last long...but neither did the hobby.

I guess you'll get a little of everything. I have a tendency to ramble on about random things. For instance, I just noticed that myself and two co-workers are all wearing different shades of green shirts today. Not something that anyone really cares about (myself included), but it gives me something to write about.

Anyway, I'll begin by introducing myself. My name is Beth. I'm...getting older. I'm married with two kids, R & S, boy and girl, ages almost 5 and almost 3. My husband is a farmer (obviously) and I work as a credit analyst for a company that manufactures broadcast equipment. I've always been a reader and a closet writer. I very seldom share what I write, but I decided this year I want to get published. Which will probably never happen because I'm holding myself back. I suddenly decided the only finished piece I had wasn't good enough to send to anyone. I've only been working on it since I was in college, but whatever. There are plenty of other things I've written that are better. Now I have to find the time to finish, revise...

Yeah. I'm a pessimist too, by the way. And an insane lover of chocolate. And an iPhone junky. Very amateur photographer. Lover of sunrises and sunsets. Habitual buyer of books (mostly YA) I don't have enough time to read, and flip flops I'll never wear.

I've never broken a bone. I got married at a little chapel in Vegas. I've always lived on a farm. I use that a lot in my writing. I like music. I'm eagerly awaiting September 28th and the new release from Jimmy Eat World, who have had more hits than just "The Middle."

And that's all I've got for now. Because I'm supposed to be working...
