Getting Started

It's my 31st birthday today.  I've been told that I need to have a blog because I love to write and people I know on facebook have told me I have a little bit of that stuff called wit.  I hope to.

Topics I hope to include on this blog:
- Food.  I love food.  I hope to include recipes, restaurant reviews for the few times we (husband and I) go out to eat, dealing with my fussy palate (it's embarrassing how many "hate" foods I have), and learning how to control portion sizes when I just want to eat it all.
- Dogs.  As the proud owner of both a Vizsla and a Rhodesian Ridgeback, I consider them my first children and treat them well.  They get their minimum of 3 miles walk per day and are a constant presence in my life.  I love telling stories about them and taking their pictures and showing off about just how great they are.
- Mental Illness.  I have been battling some form of depression for over 10 years.  My official diagnosis two years ago was "chronic major depression in partial remission," but after moving away from that psychiatrist and having a new therapist, suspicions of a mood disorder are arising.  My psychiatrist appointment for evaluations and medication control is in two days, and most likely I'll be posting about my experiences trying to stay mentally healthy and functional in a world that always expects my A-game when most of the time I just want to stay in bed and sleep.
- Domesticity.  Of course I will deviate from time to time and talk about my herb garden, life living in the country, why we reupholstered the couch after the Ridgeback chewed it entirely apart, and other random topics that I can't categorize beyond this.

Enough planning.  Let's go!
