I think I can, I think I can...

OK, I've spent enough time trying to make everything nice and pretty for my guests. I want to get down to the nitty gritty. I'm going to try and post at least once a week, I think on Mondays. I chose Mondays because on Sundays, my friends and I have a little get together at my house. We sit and gripe about what's buggin us which provides more fodder for the blog-flame.
Keep your eyes peeled. The first post will be about "Saudi-ness"; what makes a Saudi, a Saudi. Who is considered a Saudi, and who is not, by whom, and for what reasons. Also, I've added a few pictures, one of myself (covered of course, silly!). Check out my pics by clicking the hand pic on the right side as well as the rest of my tentative titles listed at the bottom.
For those of you who have been blogging for awhile this will sound kinda cheesy: I was so happy when I saw people were viewing my blog I got a bit teary eyed with pride. I was surprised it happened so quickly, people were reading and commenting on me already, after a few days! I still haven't listed myself on a feed yet, still researching which one I want to use. Can't wait to see what happens then. I'm already getting to know some of you and that fills a void that I've had due to a lack of stimulating conversation. This tends to happen with housewives all over the world so sisters, UNITE. Let me know you're there and comment your hearts out. Thanks for the support.

stay tuned

I have so, so many ideas. I've been jotting down thoughts on over two dozen topics to discuss. The catch...three kids and trying to finish my Master's thesis before May. Until I eliminate one of these hindrances to blogging I'll be faced with a guilt complex every time I log on (to clarify, I don't mean eliminating my kids-duh!). I want to make a grand debut so until I get my life settled, I'll only be making guest appearances on other blogs comments while seeing how bloggers do things.
I've told some of my friends and my husband about my blog and have sent my address to them. My friends have been eager to contribute ideas and have already started sending me texts and IM's with different thoughts that have hit them during the day. Although I'm claiming this blog as my own, my friends and their lives will also provide inspiration and insights. In a way, I expect this blog to be like any typical bitching session I have with my friends when we get together. I'll try to give credit where credit is due. For the most part, I will try to remain as anonymous as possible so in case I get too vocal on touchy subjects, it won't impact my life negatively (I can only speculate as to how). Only a few trustworthy people will know my real identity.
Meanwhile, please be patient and when I do make a post, please understand if I have not made an instant rebuttal to comments. Not only do I have 3 kids under age 10 (the youngest only a few months old) and my studies but also, a job search and a social life involving contact with flesh and blood people rather than a keyboard to maintain. Somehow, through all this, I hope to develop my cathartic little brainchild. In the interim, stay tuned....
