A new post. Overdue....really overdue.

My sister in law Lisa has loved to tease me that on her sidebar everyone else is updating their blog. So, some people are anywhere from one hour to maybe 2days....I think I was going on something like 11 months. (sheepish grin) Although not completely my fault. My husband started the blog with all intentions of having me take it over. I was totally not interested. I mean, who has time for all of that? I've seen how obsessed and stressed my mom and other family members have gotten to be over it, blah : P no thanks.

Then, my dear sweet mother, asked me if I would please read hers and leave a comment once in a while. So, being the loving and devoted daughter that I am, I decide to fill her request. It didn't end there. I would look on the side bar...."oh, Mike (uncle) has posted something. Maybe just a peek." That's not the end. I then started to look at Lisa's, then Jan's, then all of my Mathews cousins (most of which don't know this because I am a chronic lurker!) I was even looking at people I had never met just because they were on that tempting little sidebar. I started doing it everyday! I would check out my usual blogs of interest like clockwork. So with many months passing, and with many proddings, I have decided to do a little upkeep on the ol'blog....after swearing never to do it. My resolve is usually strong. A person is able to change their mind without appearing flakey right? RIGHT?!? (Sigh)

Another side reason: Jeff has been forced into a new job opportunity. Which means we are most likely moving. Which also means that if I had a blog like everyone else in the computer world I would be able to keep in touch.

I hope I will be able to make some friends and keep some through this process. I know that we are also supposed to be keeping journals of our lives to pass on to future generations, and this may just be my only shot at that. (I've tried the writing in the journal thing, I really have!)

Ok, so thanks for reading (if you made it this far ::smile::) and you can expect things like family updates, random thoughts, crafty stuff I did, photos I took, and movie reviews...man I watch A LOT of movies. So please come back and visit again.

p.s. That is a picture of ma babies. I took that picture on the 4th. I will write of them very often, and pictures, with their faces showing.

Hey Heidi, you've been littering the internet with bad links!!

Just FYI, your blog is decourseyproject.blogspot.com - that's blogSPOT dot com, not blogGER dot com.

Please Make A Note Of It!

And Welcome to active blogging!

Mike Brinkerhoff said...

Ummm... also... shouldn't your uncle's blog be linked like your mother's and Lisa's???

Heidi, I am so happy that you have finally decided to come clean and join the rest of us here in the Blog world. I'm so happy to now have all five of my grandaughters written about now. My next post will be about you and your new blog. Between me, Lisa, Donald and I'm sure Mike I'm sure we can drum you up some business. Just remember, to get comments, you need to leave comments.
Love Mom

Oh, and just a teency weency PS. Shouldn't it be noted that those darling little white dresses the girls are wearing were made by Grandma?????

Lisa said...

Welcome!!! The day has finally arrived. You've joined us :)

I think that this is perfect timing with your upcoming move (most likely, that is). You will be able to stay in contact with everyone! The interent really is an amazing thing. It makes a really big world seem quite a bit smaller.

Smiles :)

Heidi 'n' Jeff said...

Oops, blogspot.com, heh heh. I'm new at this! And yes Mike, as soon as I posted it I was banking on you commenting on no link. A major oversight of course. I also forgot to mention Alicia's page. Mrs. Googlyelmo ;)

Jan said...

Finally I get to say hi back Heidi. I enjoy your family so much. I am glad you joined the party. :) Cute picture too.

KaTrina said...

Cindy Brinkerhoff said...

Yay! I am so glad that you have joined the blogging world! I will look forward to more posts!!

Moving where?

Alicia said...

Heidi! I am very glad to finally comment back to you! Also we're going to need frequent updates of moving info etc.!

Em and Ms said...

Heidi--I guess I'd fall under the category of Mathews cousins, new friends, and possible new neighbor :) I've enjoyed getting to know you through your comments on my blog, and now I can get to know you even more! I absolutely LOVE that picture of your girls. Hopefully we'll get to meet all of you in person sometime soon.

Popping over from Lisa's to say, "Welcome!" :c)
