Welcome!

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.

  1. Yay! I'm so excited about your blog...and about the title, I've never thought of that phrase that way. Maybe because I'm guilty of telling long storys no matter what! HA! Hope that you and Herschel have a smooth transition to Florida.
