So…mark your calendars now because this is the first installment of many which I’m hoping you’ll look forward to with at least a small degree of anticipation! Tuesdays with Gretchen. That’s what I want you to remember. It’s too bad, really, that my name doesn’t begin with a “T”…or that a day of the week doesn’t begin with “G”. I could have called it Tuesdays with Trudy. That has a ring to it. When I was small, my sister called me – among a wide variety of nick names – “Trudy Myra”. Not sure why, you’d have to ask her. So I could, I suppose, call this Tuesdays with Trudy…but then, no one would know who the heck I was talking about so I guess Tuesdays With Gretchen it will be.
Have I said it often enough yet for you to remember?!! TUESDAYS WITH GRETCHEN!
So…now you know how often and when I intend to post on my blog! Yes. That would be Tuesdays. Why Tuesday? I met a girl once, who met a girl, whose name was Tuesday. I always thought it was a kinda cool name. Not that I named any of my children “Tuesday”. I’m married to a die-hard Mid-western guy. “Tuesday” is way too out there for him. I was all for “Finnley” for our third child…but yeah, that didn’t go over too well, either. Especially since she turned out to be a girl. So I had to use it for one of my character’s names.
What character am I talking about? More on that another day. Another TUESDAY.
It’s possible that I’ll have epiphanies on days other than Tuesday. And I may be compelled to write about those. Either that or I’ll store them all up for a month of Tuesdays. So don’t be surprised if there’s an occasional non-Tuesday post. As a matter of fact, you can always read anything I post on any given day…even on a Wednesday! All this to say, I’d love you to stop by as often as you’d like. If I ever figure out how to post pictures properly, I might even post them on a Friday…just to keep you on your toes.
Okay, so now you know when…I suppose you’re wondering what. Well, I think I’ve covered that in my “about”…which I believe is located on your upper right hand side and titled, “Where I’m Coming From”…look there to see what I’ll be writing about. ‘Course, who knows what epiphanies I’ll be having, so who knows what will show up…but those are my basic parameters. Those are where I’m being led. Compelled, as it were.
I really hope you’ll join me on my journey.
