Introduction

I've finally, after 3 years of considering it, decided to start a blog. See, I'm not much of a journaller. I have started journals ten gazillion times in the last 10 years, and, well, I never get more than a month into it before it's lost, abandoned, or otherwise defunct. Part of that is my atrocious writer's cramp. I'm hoping typing instead will make it easier for me to record my thoughts, and therefore obey the counsel to keep a journal-- at least in some form. And making it visible to other people may help me actually commit to doing it.

Since I intend to share with whoever reads this, I may as well tell you a bit about me and my family. I'm a 23 year old member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints living in the L.A. area. I joined the Church at 18, and was married in the Los Angeles Temple at 20, on June 21, 2003. Around the web, I am commonly known as ketchupqueen, due to my love of Heinz Tomato Ketchup (the One True Ketchup)-- hence the title. The Prince Consort, Jeff, is a wonderful man who works very hard and is completely under the thrall of our first Ketchup Princess, Emma Rose, born April 5, 2004, and Her Royal Heinz-ness Bridget Niamh, born April 21, 2006. Poor man, surrounded by X chromosomes! The only other males in the household are our two orange tabbies, Patrick and Roli, and, well, they're less than wholly male, if you know what I mean. ;)

I intend to write about my life, my thoughts, and anything else that strikes my fancy. So get the hamburger of your life ready for the ketchupy flow of my thoughts, and enjoy.

Welcome to the blog world! :) You mean you don't count posting on Nauvoo as keeping a journal? Gee, maybe I should get busy...

You better not let this one go defunct. I'll be checking up on you. ;)

Please do! It'll keep me on the straight and narrow posting path. ;)

Yeah for you, Anne!

I enjoy your thoughts, and I look forward to seeing them here, as well as continuing to at Nauvoo.

Hope you have an enjoyable experience writing on the ether of digital unreality. I will try and visit, perhaps leaving a thought or two. Just remember, there is life beyond cyberspace ;) If you don't post, maybe that is a sign you are doing things that might become post worthy.

Good luck.
