Gifts from the Heart Gone Wrong


People always say that gifts from the heart are more meaningful than actual presents. So, this year I decided to give Jim a gift from my heart. He's been asking me to start a blog to record our family events for several years. I started one in the summer, on a night when he got called in to work a night shift, but then I promptly forgot about it.

So, for Christmas, I had the brilliant idea to promise him that I would update my blog at least once every two weeks. Well, it's February 6, and not one post has appeared! Jim is no longer going to believe me if I try to give him a gift from my heart. I guess I'll just have to buy him an IPad for his birthday.

Well, if you need a little encouragement, I still have you in my google reader, and was delighted to see this update. (Even though I am insanely jealous about the technology that is potentially making its way into your home.)

Yeah, this post has been a loooong time in coming! I still have been dutifully checking back about once every couple of weeks on the off chance that there would be a new post, but alas, there wasn't. The world needs a little more Harkness on the web, so have it with gusto Ali!

I am not good at blogging either. I was excited to see your blog though - didn't know you had one. Now I expect frequent updates! And Jim would die if you got him an Ipad!!!
