I'm so glad you've found us on my blog. I'm really excited to begin dabbling in this, as it's something that I've been toying with for a while. I've enjoyed keeping up with my friends who blog, and not that we have anything all that interesting going on most of the time, but I figured it would give one or two people something to do while they're bored at work.
You may wonder about the title of the blog, and I wanted to take a brief moment to explain it. This phrase has always struck me as a little bit funny. Mainly, because it's something that's most often said when someone is in fact telling a very long story, but it in no way shortens the actual story, rather it's usually more of a bridge people use to transition from a whole lot of details into the actual point of the story. You might think that it's an odd observaion, but I've just always found it a little bit ironic. To add to the irony, I ended up marrying a man who uses this phrase quite frequently - most often when he's bored with the details of a story and wants to get to the point.
And so, I thought this phrase was an appropriate title for this blog because you'll be able to keep up with the long story that is our lives through quick, bite-sized snippets known as blog entries. In effect, I'll be keeping the long story short.
New baby in the house!
