Dear Mr. Robinson,
I have missed you so much this week. Work has been crazy, I've been feeling lonely and down in the dumps, and you weren't around to sing "suck it" with me when the Psych commercial comes on tv. Life just isn't the same when you are around. I get lazy. I eat Easter candy for dinner two nights in a row. I don't get off the sofa. I cry over everything and I'm terrified of something bad happening that will make me a widow. It's a little morbid, but it's a legitimate fear I have when we are apart. Especially when you're traveling. Just...come home safe to me today? I love you too much to be without you, even if it's just for three days. Sleeping with a body pillow just isn't the same as snuggling with the real thing. Zombie agrees.
Dear 99 Followers,
Seriously? 99 followers. It baffles me. You guys are amazing. Thanks for always reading, always commenting, and bless your hearts for finding me interesting or funny on occasion. I love connecting with y'all, leaning on each other, and learning from each other. I don't if people think we're crazy or not...I love the friendships I have in my life because of Blogger - even if my husband does think all of you are probably serial killers plotting my murder, haha.
Honestly? I'm mad at you. I eat a salad every day. I gnaw on lettuce and carrots and veggies when I would obviously prefer to eat burgers, pizzas, pastas, etc. I don't. I refrain. And you gain 4 pounds? Why can't you just be one of those bodies that never gains weight? Or why can't you just AT LEAST be a body that loses weight when it's treated right? I give you foods that are GOOD for you. Couldn't you just, return the favor and shed some weight? In addition...I'm starting to see the first signs of aging in my face. It breaks my heart...
Dear Bloggers Who Let Their IRL Friends & Family Know They Blog & Bloggers Who Keep Their Blogs a Secret,
You may know that I keep my blog a secret from my family and IRL friends. When I first started blogging, I didn't even tell my husband. I guess it's been a secret because (1) I didn't really know how to tell people that I'd started blogging and (2) I didn't want people to think I was weird. I'm starting to feel a little nervous because I have a feeling my family is about to start putting the pieces together. My mom and sister recently joined Pinterest...and I've pinned things FROM my blog. I'd hate for them to find my blog that way. My sister somehow found me on Instagram, even though my name is "mynewwifelife." I have several blog-friends who have turned into Facebook friends, and I keep waiting on someone to ask me who they are. How did I become such GOOD friends (suddenly) with a girls from all over America? Not to mention the fact that I'm attending (and helping organize) a Blogger Meet-Up in Charlotte, NC. It will be hard to explain that away to my family when Charlotte is such a random place for us to go for a 5K. So...do you guys have any advice for me? What should I do? Keep it secret, delete my Pinterest account & maybe create ONE of my blog & ONE for personal life? That's too complicated..maybe delete Pinterest all together?
Another thing...I've been considering telling y'all my real name. And you guys already know my last name...some of you know my first name. A lot of y'all use your full names on your blog. Have you ever had any problems? So many questions...I'd appreciate any advice you guys have to offer!
Thank you for all of Your tremendous blessings. I am so undeserving, and Your love brings tears to my eyes - especially when something amazing happens. Thank You for giving me such a wonderful husband to love me. Please keep him safe today as he travels.
So, go link up your letters with Ashley. She actually responded to one of my comments the other day. Even though she put on her blog that she can't keep up with responding to all of the comments. So, yeah, hashtag ballin'! Haha. I kid. Well, not really. I did feel pretty cool for having the "biggest" blogger I follow respond. Anyway, go link up your letters! & think lucky thoughts...Happy Friday the 13th. Oh...and give me some advice on the whole taking my blog "public" thing!
