Dear Blog Readers,
I do read all of your comments and e-mails. But, okay. You mystify me daily. I try to put out an interesting, compelling blog, but I am human and my life reflects that. I am sometimes dull. My life sometimes seems tediously dull to me and then something awful happens and I wish so badly that I could go back to my really dull life and just write about that rabbit in my yard instead of that big fight or some gnarly work problem.
I can't always figure you guys out. So, I went to my saved comments and e-mails and this is verbatim from...YOU.
"I think you are way too hard on Bing."
"I think Bing sounds like she has OCD and I could never put up with that shit."
"Bing sounds like the perfect mate."
"Bing sounds like kind of a controlling bitch."
"Stop getting mad about her projects, I wish my wife took some initiative."
"I swear to god that if my husband took three YEARS to finish a bathroom, we would be divorced."
"Your and Bing's relationship sounds almost too good to be true."
"You guys fight a lot, don't you?"
"You kind of brag too much about her."
"Hey, why aren't you writing about Liv much anymore?"
"Liv sounds like a robot child."
"Liv really needs you and I don't think you show her much affection."
"Liv sounds precocious. You need to tap that down early in a child or they are hell on wheels as teens."
"Liv sound so mature and wise. Lucky you!"
"Do you EVER have problems with Liv?"
"You seem to worry way too much about Liv and her school. Let her be."
Regarding everything else and the kitchen sink.
"You complain too much. I stopped reading your blog for a while because of that."
"God, is your life ever LESS than perfect?"
"You would be hard to live with, I think."
"I wish I lived with you. I want to fuck you really, really bad."
"You are way too sentimental."
"You are too logical. I can see why one of your old lovers accused you of being a Vulcan."
"I love the way you write."
"You write like you think you are better than everyone else."
"I love your politics."
"You are just another dimwitted Democrat who will ruin American life as we know it."
"I met you once and thought you were much prettier than I thought you'd be."
"I knew you in (insert name of town I grew up in) and believe me, you aren't that special."
"I love the music you put up on your blog."
"Your music kinda sucks. No offense."
"Do you and Bing ever have mediocre sex? Because you are always so moony about her that it is borderline nauseating."
"You and Bing are soooo much like me and my partner."
"You sound like a rich bitch."
"I like the way you hardly ever write about money."
"I think your gardening stories are really boring."
"I LOVE it when you write about your garden."
I get sick of your sainted Da stories."
"I LOVE your stories about Da and your sisters."
"I think your family sounds like a bunch of racist asses."
"I love the way you are so different from your sisters, but you all really love each other."
"I think you and Harriet should just fuck and get it over with it. C'mon, you know you want to."
"I wish I had a Harriet."
"I fell in love with your blog."
"I'm starting to get sick of your blog. Spice it up or you'll lose me."
Okay, youse guys...
MAKE UP YOUR MINDS!
I apologize to those of you who aren't interested in me or losing interest. I've never been much of a people pleaser, so go ahead and make your way to the door. Good luck to you.
Thank you to those who praise me. Thank you, too, to those who dislike me. Sometimes you piss me off and I go on a good rant and those are kind of healthy in a weird way.
I just write what is happening in my life, folks and how I feel about being a 50 something woman who is mourning her youthful looks and body, who loves her partner and sometimes wants to sell her to the highest bidder, who can't believe she has a daughter who seems to be an old soul.
I write about what is going on with me, my family and my world.
If I bore you, go home. Don't stop by. Go do something you love instead. Life is too short to waste it on people who bore you.
If you like me and my blog, come in and sit down. I have green tea. Want some? I also have those really good almond cookies. But don't think I baked them.
Thanks for being here. But...wow....
I just can't please all of you, so I think I will just go on being me.
It isn't easy being green, you know. But, I do try....
