I know! I know! I haven’t been around much lately. It’s not you. It’s me. It’s not like I’ve been cheating on you. Okay, I have been. But only a little. I still love you best.
The real reason I have been away so much is because I have been so busy doing other writing. That writing that will bring in a paycheck. You know, that little bit of money that helps feed the kids. But still, I love you best because you are my firsts! You always love your first
love readers. And, I was able to send a long overdue email to a very patient friend who has been waiting months for it. I was so good as to even call her with my tail tucked between my legs apologizing for not getting to her sooner. And if you know me, you know I only do the whole phone thing for fun calls.
As for life on the homefront, does anyone here feel like cleaning my house just for fun and praise? I am behind and don’t have the time, energy or, frankly, motivation to do it. I really should have looked into this whole housewife thing sooner. Somewhere along the line I agreed to actually be a housecleaner and cook when I am a stay at home mom. I just thought it meant I got to STAY at HOME and do fun stuff like eat bon-bons and watch soap operas. (Or in my case, eat Ben & Jerry’s Everything But The.. and watch TiVo’ed shows from the night before.)
But everyday the same thing happens. My family wants to have clean clothes, food and a house that they can relax in. Pushy little buggers!
So this past week I have been focused on my writing. And it wasn’t even BLOG writing. (I know. That was selfish and horribly rude of me.) And my children thought clean clothes would be, oh I don’t know, a good idea. So, you my loyal readers, got left in the dust. For that I apologize.
This week, I promise, I will totally neglect housework for you. Yes, it will be a sacrifice. But for you, I will not do laundry, mop or sweep my floor or even organize my desk. No, no, don’t try to talk me out of it. This is for you.
I owe you as much.
