I've Finally Done It!

Well, I have finally done it. I have joined the blogger world. Apparently every writer has to do this, although I can't imagine why. I procrastinated joining the blogger world mostly because I couldn't think of a clever name. My children seem to be prolific in that department. It wasn't until Sarah (child #5, daughter #4) suggested I use song lyrics that I finally discovered what I wanted to use - hence the title of my blog.

I thought the title fitting since I think I reside in the world of stars and dreams. It's my secret to cheerfulness in case anyone asks. An expression that I use often and one of my husband's favorites is, "I don't want to go there." That can be in reference to anything from a trip to the store, to thoughts about current life and world situations. If it's unpleasant I choose not to dwell on it. Of course there are days when all those 'thoughts' that I try to avoid come bubbling to the surface. On those days I try to avoid all people and stay in bed.

Since I am new to the blogging world, be patient with me. I will try to learn quickly how to master my piece of the world wide web. For some reason the words "oh what a tangled web we weave" just came to mind. Hmmm. I will try not to make this too tangled. Hopefully I will be able to add witty comments now and again, or thought provoking commentary, or maybe just keep everyone posted on what I'm doing.

I don't promise to be prolific. I'm not a very good journal keeper. But I will write on occasion. And that's all folks!


  1. You'll have to give me some advice on how to not dwell on the negative. Between a rough day at school and consistent teacher and Mormon bashing on the news that's all I'm thinking about today.

    You could always use this blog to review what you are reading too. That should give you plenty to post about and let me know what's available at the Talley library :)

  2. Huzzah for entrance to the blogging world. We are happy to greet you. And I do love your blog title (though your url address makes me giggle. The yar at the end reminds me of pirates).

    I looke forward to all your grand and wise expostulations about the great wide world and reading and writing and life.

    Basically, you're awesome.

  3. I still think you are a cheater!

  4. I like the title mom! I think you could have started one anyways though. I look forward to your postive view on things :)

  5. I am excited to follow your blog and learn from the wise :) I love the title of your blog and that picture of you and president Talley is so sweet!
    Anna, I am so sorry you had a rough day I am thinking of you!
