Question of the day: Is this a private blog?

Answer: I don't know! It's supposed to be a private blog, I thought I had it set up as private but then something strange happened. Someone told me they read it. WHAT? How did that happen? I guess when I signed up as a "fan" on their blog, it automatically linked me to this blog. (Well, at least the post from that day was mildly amusing, so I wasn't too embarrassed.) Unfortunately for the rest of you, most of this blog will be very mundane, everyday stuff that my kids do and say. So, out of courtesy to you, I'm just warning you that this may prove to be very boring and long-winded, not like the one-liners you're used to having me zing at you.

Other question of the day: Why is my blog listed under toontowndramaisland? (I think that's it anyway. I actually don't even know for sure!) Well now, that's kind of a funny story. When I first signed up as a fan on Blake Casselman's blog, I also looked on my fan profile. It listed me as "Leonie", some random name I'd seen before when I'd tried to comment on friends' blogs. I always thought that was the default until you made up an identity of your own. Well, apparantly, "Leonie" had a blog, listed as Toontown Drama Island Blog. This sounded suspiciously familiar. My middle child, Ally, who lives up to the reputation of "middle child" in every way possible, is a fan of Disney's Toon Town. She had also recently started playing a game called Toontown Total Drama Island. So, I clicked on the blog, and there it was, in black and white. It was just started, not even with any real entries yet, but, at the top in big letters was MY e-mail address. I decided to take matters into my own hands and make lemons out of lemonade (and any other cliche you want to throw in here). I took over the blog and started using it. It was pretty nice to have a ready-made blog, just waiting for me to start typing. Unfortunately, I don't know how to make it cute yet and look like I would want it to. Any help in that area would be greatly appreciated. (Especially since this is not a private blog anymore. Someone else told me later that they had been reading it too.)

The only question that still remains is, who the heck is Leonie? I hope she's not some porn star or something, because with that kid, (my middle child, Ally) you just never know!
