This is a post dedicated to everyone that matters in my life.
I know that lately it has seemed that I have become consumed with blogging. Well that would be because it’s true. I found something to be passionate about that is all my own. No one else can poop on it, spit on it, drop food on it, fart on it, eat 20 bites of it, burp on it, drool on it, throw up on it, break it,….you get my point. I have total control over it and in many ways blogging keeps me from going insane.
I know the house has been a bit neglected but hey the dirt will still be there tomorrow…and the next day…and…well at that point I am sure my OCD will set in and I will spend hours cleaning. The important thing is that the kids are still alive…that’s most important right?
I am still in the midst of trying to find a balance between my home life and my blogging life and somewhere in there I need a social life too other then via the internet. But please understand that my internet “posse” has filled a void that was empty for quite some time. I can finally communicate with people who understand exactly what the hell is streaming from my crazy mom brain. I don’t have to justify to them why I drink wine by the box, or why I sneak my food as quietly as I can because they already get it! They understand what it’s like to never have a cracker to yourself let alone a whole meal without tiny someones wanting a bite or half your plate. They understand the stresses that come along with being a stay at home parent and that wine, beer, vodka…whatever….is a necessity sometimes. And I love reading their stories that relate to my entire life!
I apologize that I have completely taken over the computer like a crazed lunatic and spending hours at a time doing stuff related to blogging. But I am still figuring a lot of stuff out. I am far from being a techie so half my time is spent trying to figure out how to get something to work and the other half is spent waiting for the damn rural internet to work. No need to worry, once I get everything running smoothly and can organize my time better I will come out of the blogging fog. I will never give up blogging. It is something that has grabbed me and I just don’t see it letting go. Nor do I want it to.
So please stop looking at me with that blank stare on your face when I start to talk about what I did in the blogging world today. For those of you that wonder “what is a blog anyway”. Well if you read Huffington Post…guess what? That’s all bloggers. All those articles that people post via Facebook and other social medias…yeah came from blogging. You Tube? Yeah that’s called vlogging ….short for video blogging. I know that when I tell some people that I blog that they really don’t care and guess what neither do I. I don’t have time for that negativity in my life. You can either support me and be happy for me, don’t say anything at all, or here…let me give you a little shove off my boat. For those of you who have been a great support I thank you. I appreciate you. And that’s why I have written this letter for YOU.
