Here We Go
Hello World. That is of course the only way to get the ball rolling. I’ve been told I should write a book or start a blog. I’ve got a lot swirling around in my head and I might sleep better if I have an outlet for some of it. I Googled “How to start a blog” and came across lots of articles on the topic, none of which were actually all that helpful, but clearly the interest is out there. I tried to use the app Dragon Dictation while driving to get some good thoughts written down and lost all train of thought upon hearing my voice out loud. I spoke a whole awesome paragraph that was coming together in my head and the app caught the first 2 words and pooped out on me. If that wasn’t bad enough I had lost my drive to give it a second go after listening to myself rattle on out loud. It was NOT the voice that rattles on and on inside my head day in and day out. My inner voice is a lot more self confident and sure of itself than my out loud voice. Choosing a name for this blog was exceptionally difficult. You wouldn’t believe the names that are already taken! Let’s suffice it to say that this is not even my 17th choice. As my mind rattled on in bed after failing to choose an adequate name for my blog so I could just get on with it and start, I randomly came up with JeMaBeBo using all the first two initials of all four of us. I'm the Je. In my head I pronounce it “Gem-a-bee-bo”, but feel free to pronounce it as you like. Maybe there is a better pronunciation out there. My aim is to jot down my experiences and observations of life with Ma, Be and Bo before I forget and it's all a blur.
