Somewhat current pictures

If the main point of a blog is to "keep up" current pictures, then I'd better give it a try!

Keeping up

There are many things that we try to keep up with everyday, whether or not we should. We keep up the laundry, keep up our house, keep up with the kid(s), keep up with the Joneses, keep up the yard, keep up with work ... the list goes on and on! But for once, I'm going to try to keep up with our everyday life.

"Everybody's doing it!" people kept telling me. "It's a great way to let everyone see pictures of the kids!" So, hello, 21st century and the blog world; the Hodges family has finally arrived. Be patient with me as I try to figure it all out and post pictures and such! I do think that putting my thoughts into words with be a good way to process everyday life. Not that too many people would really care about what Kim Hodges has to say or think, but perhaps my ever-forgiving family will find some things humerous or be able to give some advice through life's adventures.

So, why do I feel like this is such a big deal? Why hesitate to jump into this world of blogging? Insecurity? Fear of not finishing what I started--I mean, do we now blog the rest of our lives since embarking on this journey? Lack of commitment? I suppose all of these questions bouncing around in my head will be dealt with in time. (Now is that just another way of saying, "I'll think about that tomorrow?")

Then I start thinking that blogs have the same concept as Seinfeld. You know, the show about nothing. Perhaps it is in the "nothingness" of each day that I find satisfaction and fulfillment. I love being a mother and wife, even with all of the challenges that come with it.
