Twelve Days in Canada, Two Days Till Christmas

O.K.  I finally got around to it.  It was that I couldn't find a clever enough name for this blog . . . the reason I only am just now setting it up.  Several months ago, I was making all these elaborate plans to use it to chronicle our drive up through Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, and New York (did I miss one?  Nope, think I got 'em all) and into Canada.  I was gonna make it educational, witty, informative, and . . . well, something that some future historian would come across in fragments off the half-melted hard drive of some server buried in an iceberg, and say "Wow!  Those humans really led stimulating lives."  Yeah, RIGHT!  Ha, ha!

So, within every procrastinator is one big, ridiculous ego!

Now that I have reminded myself of the fact that, even though the Internet has the potential to allow everyone to watch one's performance, it's very, very, very unlikely much of anyone will, I will commence writing about the mundane and make observations of interest really only to Alex, Emily & myself - and of partial interest to all our friends and loved ones.  (I mean, you all have lives - and busy ones at that.)  This is mostly just a way for us Chapmans to sort of "bump into" y'all on occasion, share whatever is happening between our respective sets of ears at that particular moment in time, and continue to weave those passing thoughts of each other into our respective life tapestries.  (Yeah, the preceding gaggle of words simply meant:  "I want to stay in touch.")

So if you can find a moment or two to occasionally read this, that would be great.  Comments about what's going on with you and the family back home would be even better!


  1. Ha ha Heather! You are too funny! Glad to see you started it- wasn't much of a procrastination. I was going to start a blog on toys / kids stuff and it's been about 6-8 months because I couldn't think of a name! LOL

  2. Denise! You win the prize! First comment! I don't know what it is yet, but I guess I have a year to think up something good to award you. :-)

  3. Heather, you made me smile!

    Just post a paragraph update and a picture and you are done. People rarely get blog really going until the first 30 posts or so anyway, so at first at least it makes sense to post quickly and easily...

    I am very much looking forward to your adventures! Now get to catching and taming them wild moose - you need to be settling into the new life and all.

  4. Heather - I always did love your witty, perfectionistic style of writing when you and I worked together at SAS. You are a woman after my own heart! I can't wait to read future postings. Thanks for the invitation. :-)

  5. I have been thinking about you all and wondering how you were settling in to O Canada! Thanks for doing this and I'll look forward to reading about what will no doubt be many an adventure, eh? :)
