My blog has become terribly neutral and impersonal hasn’t it… cellphones, cars, ADHD…
I was trying to work out why I seldom blog about me personally anymore. Since I started this as a place to talk about raising my son, I should be blogging about him, and about my life.
And then it struck me.
When I blog about my knucklehead now it kinda feels like I am gossiping about him. And now that he is spending time with biodad* and stepmom* I want to blog even less about our ups-and-downs… the situation with that side of the knucklehead’s life is a little complicated and I don’t want to make it more so. And password protected posts make me neurotic and I hate that I can’t share everything with the people who have been reading me forever… simply because the world is so very small.
And anyone who has read my blog long enough will know that I don’t blog about my relationship with my Glugster apart from bragging about how spoilt I am… We’ve been married for 11 months and I adore him. I love that I am his wife. We have still yet to have a fight- after three and a half years together. We have disagreements- we’re not clones of each other after all- but they’re usually short-lived and don’t turn into actual fights. And when I’m wrapped in his arms it’s still my happy place. Things were different here at home for us for a while. My sweetheart was between jobs for a couple of months and it stressed me terribly! I knew we’d be fine and he’d find a new job, but anyone who’s been in this situation will know that nothing happens fast.
And I blog less when I stress!
I am still baking up a storm as my alter-ego, and I am enjoying it thoroughly. I’m working on a to-do list to expand my range of recipes and goodies on offer. I’m taking an icing class which is a lot of fun, but I don’t know any of the women in the class so I am the quiet-knuckle-down-to-work-don’t-talk-much Angel… I’m not a mingler and it takes me a loooong time to open up unless I am with at least one person I already know. They didn’t even know I’m “The Cupcake Lady” until I’d been there for a month! I am very definitely 2 different people when it comes to letting people “in”…
I’m still officially on Weigh-Less, but I’m not actually making any progress… we haven’t been shopping properly for groceries and I have completely lost focus on even going to the weekly weigh-in! When it comes to self-control and food, I fall off the wagon badly. So the ticker on my side-bar hasn’t moved in weeks, and not because I’m not updating it.
A long ass blog post that actually says fork all.
