|The Inmates - Foghorn & The Professor|
While I resent my husband asking why, under those circumstances, I'm wasting time writing a blog, I can kinda understand the question. What exactly is my purpose in being here?
I want to say because this is a "misery-loves-company" blog. My motto is, "If you don't have something nice to say, come sit by me." I regularly dream of driving away, alone, with a teardrop Airstream trailer attached to the back of my car and I know for a fact that I'm not alone.
If your life is a chaotic whirl, you can probably relate to me. If you have a sparkling clean house, perfectly coiffed hair, and kids well mannered enough to meet the Pope on short notice, then you'll think I'm a mess. And that's okay, too. If I serve you by making you feel superior, that's not such a bad thing either. I've been known to watch the occasional really bad reality show just because it makes me feel so much better about my own life.
I can't promise you the solutions to cat vomit stains in the down comforter, kleptomaniac children, or erasing $30,000 worth of credit card debt. I can only give you a little glimpse into my life with all its warts and scars, its fun times and its adventures. I even occasionally throw in a recipe or a knitting pattern or a favorite book. I don't aim to shine a light on the world's troubles and I don't pretend that in the big scope of things my problems matter one single bit. I just hope to give someone a few minutes of amusement during the day.
As for my husband, next time he asks the question of why I'm blogging, I think I'll say with a puffed-out chest, "Because I'm serving women worldwide." Naw...I think I'll just say, "I have to have someplace to publicly skewer you."
