A New Year!

I've always been told I should write a book, so this seems like a natural first step. Let me introduce myself. My name is Jan and I'm mom to three teens. My life seems to fall in to the category of "this could only happen to you!" I've often been likened to Lucy, but I don't think that's necessarily fair. Lucy would do anything for a laugh (and quite effectively I might add!), whereas I generally find myself being thrown into situations usually not of my making.

I'm also an avid knitter, and hence the birth of this blog. I've been encouraged by others generous enough to share their time, talent, patterns and skill, so I thought I would share as well. I don't have the talent and skill (yet!), but I figure if I share what I do have (including the mistakes), maybe we can all learn from them!!

This blog is my New Year's resolution. Why, you ask? Simple! I'm tired of resolving to lose weight, only to gain it back with interest by February. I could resolve to decrease spending again, but the last time threw my budget off for months! I've tried the no more cussing one, but that lasted less than an hour. Oh yeah, let's not forget my cleaning and organizing resolution. That was five years ago, and I'm still looking for some of the stuff I cleaned and organized. This actually seems like a resolution I might keep. Only time will tell!! :)


  1. Hey Jan!

    Wishing you a very happy, healthy and bloggie successful New Year.

    Looking forward to reading your daily blog.

  2. Hi Jan, I love this idea and I think you are off to a great start! I feel you possess many talents, a caring heart and a knack for diplomacy come to mind--and you are a fantastic writer as well. Many blessings to you in the New Year, and I am proud to be among your friends.
