Well, I'm well qualified. I have years of experience failing in my journal writing endeavors. I have dutifully neglected decades worth of journals, everything from my very first pink vinyl-bound lock-and-key style Dear Diary to my last abandoned blog. And if you don't try, how can you fail?
So here I am. New blog, no followers, which is maybe for the best. Alone with that misguided glimmer of hope that I will have something to say, and actually say it. My life is quite interesting - fascinating, actually. I am the mother of four year old twins and a an emergency medicine doctor. Mama + Doc, get it? Plus I'm a wife, a friend, a sister, an aunt, a teacher, a cook, a knitter, a photographer, a cyclist, a volunteer, and plenty else. When I'm old and decrepit, I'd like to remember some of these things. Plus my sister in law Karin just published a beautiful book of her amazing blog, Quoddy News, and I'm jealous. That's something else I am: a jealous person. Also sometimes petulant.
Anyway, here's to a new year of writing stuff down! If you don't like moms, doctors, or any of the other stuff I am, don't read this blog. If you read it anyway and it annoys you, don't worry - it probably won't last long.
Today's entry: Jack's list of Things He Doesn't Know. There are four. They are:
1. How bad guys grow
2. What birds' bones look like
3. How leaves change colors
4. How cars get fixed.
That is all.
