Things I hope to do before I die

In no particular order:

  • Go to graduate school (a PhD being the ultimate goal)
  • See at least one of my kids get married 
  • Hold a grandchild
  • See a Peter Gabriel concert (he's not getting any younger and neither am I)
I'll add more as I think of them. I'm open to suggestions, so leave a comment if you have something I should consider adding!

Welcome Facebook friends!

I just realized that I linked to this page from my Facebook profile, and I haven't been updating it. When I first registered for Facebook, there was hardly anyone I knew on there. I guess I didn't think that many people would visit here. Now that I'm reconnecting with so many old friends, I've decided that I could use this place to let people get to know present-day Marta. In many ways I've changed, as I'm sure we all have, but once you get to know me again, you'll see that I'm the same girl I was in high school (plus a few wrinkles).

I will also start using this blog for the originally intended purpose of posting family updates. It seems like a good central location for everyone to keep up with goings on here. We don't get many chances to visit with family and friends anymore and I know that many of you don't want to miss seeing my kids grow up. Hard as I try, I can't seem to stop the years from flying by!

So, welcome friends and family to this window to my life. We'll make you laugh, we'll make you cry, but we hope we won't ever be boring. After all, this is Cooperative Mayhem, and we usually live up to that name!
