Did you ever notice that once you read a blog, and find something interesting about that blog, you are then hooked? I am such a blog addict. I lay awake sometimes at night wondering what will I write. Will anyone read it? Will anyone notice if I dont post a blog tomorrow? I feel like somedays I need a blogging 12 step program, but I just can't stop. Its like a new legal and um free drug :o)~ And the worst that happens is I get a smile, shed a tear, belly laugh til my stomach hurts or cry until I have the same pain. All in all, a small price to pay to get to be hormonal daily and say "But I read this blog...."
I have learned some stuff about people I have known for a couple of years, and made friends with people who my path may never have crossed if not for the words on these pages. I am grateful for everyone I meet via this experience, and while it may not last forever, I am sure enjoying while it is here. I have said before blogging is therapy, I can get out what I need to and it usually can fix my broken heart, or put a smile on my face. I am not afraid of needing to hide myself in this blog, and while I do appreciate the people who have to keep things private, I am not afraid to share my world and even share with you the interesting or not so interesting dealings of a mother of six.
Between watching Emily move around, and find her independence, David and dealing with Aspergers and his comical behaviors and dare I say some days not so comical, Marys drama queenitis, AJs life love and the pursuit of sports, Danny well Danny is Danny there isn't much to say other then when something happens and he asks "this isnt going in your blog is it?" (no Danny, not everything appears, for example I never told the story about finding out that we were pregnant with your little sister Emily, your reply was "OMG you had SEX again?" that would be wrong.. oopsie) Stephanie well Stephanie is unique all in her own. She's 17. doesnt that just say it all? And we can hardly leave out Chuck who again, is a whole beautiful chapter on his own. :o)~
Seriously, blogging has definitely become a way of life, seeing the insides of other peoples lifes and reading them, seeing other peoples victories, and at times their sorrows, there is alot to be said for blogging, and I think I am just glad I found it.
