Voice to Text

Okay, so I haven't posted in forever or with any regularity for years now but I'm thinking maybe if I try this voice to text thing then maybe I will actually get some stuff out. One of the main reasons why I don't blog anymore is because I don't sit in front of a computer all day anymore. Well I kind of do, if you count my cell phone but its hard to type that much on it and so it doesn't really happen. I have lots of drafts of half started posts and that's about it. So you're probably going to see a lot of typos or maybe even sentences that don't make sense and I'm going to apologize in advance for that but I figure at least for me this is better than nothing.

I use to keep a diary almost everyday from when I was about I don't know maybe 10 years old until I was in my early 20's and it was around then that I started blogging and I blogged almost everyday sometimes multiple times a day and it's nice to know that I have that information to look back on for me it's kind of a selfish thing it's nice that I can go back and say oh I forgot about that you know and now there it is I don't have to forget it forever its some it's written down its been put on paper innocence. Um and it makes me really sad that since I stopped blogging regularly several years ago I don't have that I have kept a diary very very loosely and other than that that's it. That is unless you count Facebook as a sort of mini blog and I guess it is, I really s . . hould go through it and pull out the stuff that I really like and want to be able to hold on to . Especially things like places we've been the funny things colon is said oh this is going to be a problem it's going to want to write colon everytime I want to say my sons name! Oh well maybe whoever reads this with who I'm talking about and this is pretty much for me anyway I guess. So I guess to bring things up to date I am now 36 years old Colin um is four and a half and my husband is 33 and we have all been living in the same house in Decatur since 2006.

Just recently some of my old friend from Germany came to visit my friends Dorothy and her husband Peter and their daughters Mia and Ana They were here for two weeks we had a lot of fun doing sightseeing around atlanta as well as in New Orleans and we also went to the beach in Alabama on the Panhandle.

I don't really have a whole lot else other than that to say right now nothing pressing on my mind except that I'm really trying to get into a more creative space I guess this is it away kind of a free writing for me um I'm just I'm really trying to tap into that more regularly I don't want to wait until it comes around I want to find a way to kind of hold it gently so that I can access it more freely and without it may be all the anxiety that I sometimes come to experience with the pressure to somehow perform or do something extraordinary when I really just want to enjoy myself and I create so we'll see dot dot dot
