Yes, this is a real entry

I've transitioned to being a stay-at-home dad and I've been informed that every stay-at-home dad has a blog apparently. Our daughter Zim (not her real name, but it's the moniker we use to refer to her online) was born on April 10. We are blessed (a word too often used in today's culture, but one that fits here) that Zim is healthy and happy and that my wife could take twelve weeks of leave she had accumulated (How does anyone do it with the only option being six weeks unpaid?).

One of my goals for this time - besides the obvious one of keeping my daughter alive, healthy, fed, clean, and happy - is to write more. When I was younger, writing was simply one of the joys of my life and I aspired to making a living as a writer. That did not happen for a host of reasons. I do not expect to ever make a living as a writer, but I do want to find the joy in writing again.

So here I am.

I've had this LJ account for a long time. While I did use it pretty actively for awhile, it has pretty much just become a dump for my book reviews (which is, in truth, a big part of my life and, up until Zim, one of the more interesting parts). The book reviews will still come, but it's time to revive it with real writing as well. I don't know if anyone still reads this (I haven't unsubscribed from anyone but my wall looks pretty scrawny). But it's here and feel free to respond.
