Allow me to introduce you to my rapidly growing blogging habit: my very own Blog Ness Monster. Like the stuff of other legends she started out small, little more than a tadpole, really. But over the last few months she's developed a life of her own.
Oh she's elusive, all right. Many's the hour that I forget her existence, but then something funny will happen and I'll sense her long neck craning over my shoulder to get a better view. My kids love her! (But then again, what kid doesn't love a good allegory?!)
My husband is less charmed-- after all, Nessie is growing steadily and she does demand a lot of attention. But then again, so do the kids, so I'm thinking that if she can be reined in a bit that she'll ultimately win him over.
When I'm not indulging in the care and feeding of Nessie I'm tending to my other pet projects: my two sons, my husband and my dog. We're most frequently spotted around Brussels, although rumor has it that we will soon be exchanging this habitat for the rolling hills of southern Germany.
So that's Nessie in a nutshell. Elusive. Enigmatic. I just hope she's not dangerous! (And that she's not planning on breeding anytime soon!)
