Dear Blog,

I miss you. It's been a while since I just sat down with you my dear blog. I feel like I'm not giving you the attention you deserve. I'm not sharing things with you like I should be. It's just been so busy over here and I feel like I'm letting you down. Like you sit here and wait for me to pop onto your dashboard and tell you something exciting, but there's really nothing exciting to tell.

Except that I ate a frozen light Twinkie a little while ago and it tasted to good I immediately wanted another.

And that on Monday I finally went back to the ENT and begged him to slice a hole in my eardrum and suck out the gunk in my ear so I could get some of my hearing back.

And then on Tuesday Tukey got strep and puked in the doctor's office, and then the grocery store, and then in my bed.

So, you see, dear Blog, I'm not ignoring you on purpose, and it's just not you I'm ignoring. It's lots of things! I ignore myself a lot too! I haven't taken a nice healthy walk and we've had 70-degree weather here for the last three days, but how can I go outside when I've been sick and now Tukey is sick. And now it doesn't matter cuz the weather is turning to crap, and that means my attitude is gonna turn to crap too. So there's that.

And I haven't been to yoga.

And the house is a disaster. I've neglected the laundry, but that's typical. I've neglected my husband. We are two ships that pass in the night. Every day and every night. My kids come and go. I wake, I contemplate a shower. Most days I reject that shower. Although today I succumbed to my stinkiness and took one.

And then there's that FACEHELL thing. I think it's trying to drag me away from you, my dear blog. But I won't let it suck me away. I do like it. It's nice to connect with old friends, and new friends, and blog readers. I love seeing photos from the people I 'know' but don't know. But my heart belongs to you blog. After all, we've been together almost FOUR years!

Yes, it'll be four years next month. You and me, my little blog. I won't let you down. You haven't let me down. You've been here for all my bitching and venting and whining and crying, and all my photo sharing and story-telling and griping and all that crap.

So I will try not to let you down blog.

Because I love you. I'll try not to stay away too long.

Jenn, thanks for not outting me!

Feener--bummer about cancelling your dinner plans. I may have to cancel my blogger lunch plans tomorrow.

Kelli--Fun to connect on FACEHELL even though I hate it!

MaBunny--puke on the bed = NO FUN! Hope all is well!

Yes, the puking thing is quite popular now. I work at a school, and everyday I see the custodian cleaning up somebody's lost cookies. That wonderful aroma sits there in the halls for all to enjoy. Today, I welcomed the smell of burnt popcorn from the teacher's lounge, because anything is better know!

Hope everybody feels better soon!

And that's why I have the stash of preposted items from when I feel inspired ;) I so don't envy you the puking though... and ummm how'd the ENT visit go? I've got a lovely story I need to share on that one (errr two) sometime soon. And Facebook? Let's just say that's my next step!

Dude- the seasons change and I always feel this same sense of being overwhelmed... do what you gotta do, and we'll all be here whenever you can get here. We understand. :)

Moll said...

Seriously! We miss you! But sometimes life gets hectic and its all we can do to shower every three days. Hang in there. I know you will be back soon.

I know the feeling, my blog has also been neglected. My life is just boring, that's all. At least my ear is not exploding while my children's heads spin around. That's a total bummer. I'm drinking some wine, you should have a drink too. Cheers!
