I DO plan on posting more about our trip, and I've NOT decided to quit blogging. I think I just tripped over a bump in the road to Blogsville. I was traveling along my merry way, minding my own business, when the
Unit Innocent Bystander came home last month and threw a verbal monkey wrench into my inner workings. He had read a certain post in which I explained my aversion to orange extension cords and he expressed concern about my mental health, in a "Are you out of your fucking mind???" kinda way, which seems to have thrown me off kilter. For some reason, I just don't want to write in front of him now. If I sit down at my computer with him there, I feel like I'm sitting there nekkid as a jaybird now, with all my soft parts exposed for him to mock. Kinda takes the wind out of my sails. I don't like feeling vulnerable.
But, like I said-I do plan on getting back to my daily routine of birds, breakfast and blogging. I miss the feeling of accomplishment I get when I hit that publish post button, and the time I spend giggling over silly pictures as I search for a little something extra to throw in for your bloggy dessert. And I miss looking forward to your comments-they are the icing on my bloggy cake. I have come to terms with the fact that the IB will never be able to rely on my blog as a means of early retirement, but it still is important to ME, so I'm not going to let his ridiculing me shame me into giving up writing. Just sayin'.
