Goin Bloggin

I have fought the blogging world toenail and tooth and yet it has still sucked me in. I will tell you that it is thanks to my sister, Rachel, who has led me down this tunnel. But I figure I am sitting up here on this computer at night with nothing to do but try to get my baby to go to sleep. So I should do something productive not just research various inane topics, like the other night I was up till midnight reading about little people. Really you should never call them midgets its very offensive. Dwarfs is also acceptable. There are 200 different kinds of dwarfs. I used to be afraid of dwarfs. Once when my brother was about 4 we were walking around the Drs. office and right around the corner came a dwarf who was the same height as he was. He looked so terrified.
I live in Dayton Ohio. I'm married with 2 little girls. My husband is a teacher and I teach piano on occasion. We have ended up in Dayton for way too long and are trying to sell our house. Dayton is our ninevah. We came here innocently enough, 2 innocent babes from rural farmland Ohio. I convinced him to rent an apt. on the East side telling my husband that it was so cheap we would be able to save loads of money. So of course we were inducted into the life of luxury. I'll just say...A. roaches B. the rent a center truck bringeth the truck taketh away (not to us i'll add)C. people who love eachother tend to beat eachother (no not us)
We didn't give up on this town though. Ahh the Gem City. Okay who thought up the Gem City for Dayton?? I want them to explain themselves please. We just couldn't seem to escape. We moved to another duplex and then bought our first house in Dayton.
We have gone to Church downtown in a tiny little office building converted into a church. I want to leave, I want a neighborhood where there isn't stolen vehicles being parked in front of your house. I want a place where people don't drive through one side of your brand new white picket fence and out the other side. Where people get into domestic disputes on your front porch and dudes try to lift your windows at night. The cop at our neighborhood watch meeting told us to shoot anything that moves. ooooh Dayton. So now I'm goin' Bloggin'. Steph (goin' cloggin').

That is true. Dayton held it's grip on us before we realized. The sad part is, Rach, that I already forget so many of my crazy stories. Stephanie now you have to start a blog.
