There’s Not enough room in this head for the both of us….

I am finding this multiple personality- blog thing really difficult. It’s not that I don’t have plenty to say…. I have more to say than my fingers can type… and I type 70 words per minute! (pretty impressive, eh? Ok, maybe not THAT impressive…. let me bask in my glory, ok?) But, I am finding that in order to have a life, something’s gotta give. Do I keep up both blogs regularly? Do I do the dishes? Do I do the bathroom? Do I finally take out the mildewy laundry that’s been sitting in the washer for over a week? Do I get out the monstrously heavy vacuum and get up all the string and bits of fabric strung all over my floor? These are important questions one needs to ask one’s self.

 I would love to spend my days living through other’s lives on the internet….. anonymously sharing in others joys and sorrows….. completely blocking out reality. I could spend my entire day just reveling in my genious as a blog writer… perfecting my technique…. but, alas, I do not live in the computer.  My blog can’t really love me back. Although I feel like I have many friends out there in internet land, the reality is that most of them don’t even know I exist.  I guess I am classified as a “lurker”. It sounds dark and sinister. But, I don’t have time to lurk and do laundry at the same time.

 So, I guess somethings gotta give. What you may ask? Well, I’ve decided to give up parenting and cleaning. It isn’t really that fun anyway. I’d be much happier not facing reality. Doing dishes is overrated, and my vacuum really needs to be emptied…. something that is too much work… and I can just spend all my time on the internet which doesn’t need to ever be emptied, so where’s the dilema? I say there is none. My son will grow up without my being around. He knows how to fix himself sandwiches, so I’m not needed in that area. He has done his own laundry since he was about 4, so that’s taken care of… he can even do mine!  My husband really only needs me as a listening ear, and I can nod and say “uh…huh…..” at frequent enough intervals that he feels sufficiently listened to.

So, problem solved! I should now be able to post multiple blogs each day, and keep myself pretty satisfied! I’m glad I worked that all out! If, by chance, it should arouse some anger and jealousy in my family, though, you may need to resort to going to my other blog for more current information, as that is the one I tend to post on more frequently. But I really don’t see that becoming a reality…..

    OMG. This is seriously one of the funniest things on the planet. I’m laughing my A$$ off here.

    I thought it was going to be some announcement that you were going to give up blogging (And how many of those have I read and written over the years!)

    Totally hysterical, friend.

    Give up blogging????? What are you saying????? I’m sorry, but I draw the line at giving up the one place I can go where I can be myself…. or at least the self I pretend to be when not in real life, I don’t have to get dressed, OR brush my teeth, and I can make people think whatever I want them to think about me!

    Came over via Loralee…

    I like to think I’m not ignoring my kids, I’m fostering independence.

    Good for you! I’ll follow right along! (Although, Reagan won’t be very good at doing her own laundry….)
