So much to say but where to start

For a couple weeks now I've had multiple ideas for blog posts pop into my head. So many in fact, I'm not sure what to write about first. I figure the best way to solve that problem is to just make a list. Here's some of the ideas I've had:
  • Thoughts about my Mom
  • Reflections on the local veterans' cemetery
  • More sharing about my new home, job, town, and state
  • Concerns about the statistics of second marriages
  • Answering the requests for my engagement story
  • The recent visit from our dear friends, the Phillips
  • My new car
  • The projects I've completed on my new house
  • Honoring the requests of the deceased, and if I agree with that idea
  • Changes in my view of adulthood
  • Art
  • Plans for our wedding
  • Something simple yet profound I've learned from Alli
Okay, that's a good beginning. Whoever still clicks on ELEVEN, feel free to comment your choice of topics and I'll start there.

I'll leave you with a picture of an amazing birthday present Alli spent days making for me:

All of them sound great! I wish I had more time in my day to blog. Now that home school has started back up, I can read other blogs in between lessons, so I would love to see some new thoughts on your page!! Hope all is well with you, Sam.

And I kinda think we should all pick topics from your list and blog about them and then we can compare ideas...ya know, since it was such a fascinating list!!

IE: Can I steal your topics when my brain is fried. Which is always.
