Life has been so crazy and overwhelming lately that I have decided I need an outlet! I am one of those people who actually has conversations/arguments in my head with people and that's how I "get over" things that are bothering me. So obviously I tend to keep things holed up in me and then they fester and I am in bad shape. (I'm GREAT at the silent treatment!) Also I really want a way to keep our friends and family up to date on what's going on at the Allen house, since we are not real good at calling people. So I am looking at this blog as a kind of therapy to keep me sane and hope our friends and family will enjoy reading it as well. Please leave any suggestions for the blog or comments so I know how I am doing.
