Did I ever tell you about that one time D and I forgot our anniversary?
Actually, it was two times. …and we’ve only been married for two years.
Which means we’ve missed 100% of our anniversaries as a married couple.
So it really shouldn’t have come as a surprise when I realized that I missed my first blogiversary a few weeks back.
Happy blogiversary to me?
The timing of my realization was a little uncanny because I’ve just been feeling kind of… blah. Uninspired. Bored.
I blame it on a couple things.
1) The God awful heat. If I were prone to cussing… I would be cussing about how many days in a row we’ve hit triple digits. It makes me cranky. It makes me want to draw the curtains, hunker down in the AC with my fall edition of Country Sampler, and not peek my head out until September. Forget the landscaping. Let it burn till I can see pumpkins.
2) D’s God awful schedule. He took a new position at work, and I’m very proud of him and how hard he works. But If I were a spitting woman, I would spit about how much he’s been gone. His alarm went off at 4:45 this morning, as it will the next two mornings. And I’ll be lucky if I see him before bed time. It’s hard to get stuff done without my right hand man!
So Junior and I head home in the evenings, hang out with Bill, eat a little dinner, take a bath… and when he goes to sleep and I know that’s my chance to be all creative and inspired and make our home come alive. But no, all I want to do is pour a glass of wine, get in the tub, and read Game of Thrones.
And no one wants to read a blog about that.
So here I am, adrift in ho-hum land, when out of nowhere a wild edition of Country Sampler appears! (Actually my Mother-in-law brought it to me, and it was tame) But this wasn’t just any edition… it was the September edition.
I drank it all in like a happy hour Sonic drink. Cover to cover, oohing and aahing and terrorizing D by asking if he could build me every other piece of furniture I saw.
With inspiration like that, what girl wouldn’t want to dive right back in?
This story had no moral, but the bottom line is; Thanks for sticking around.
I like you.
