dum de dum de dooo....I've missed all of you!

Yeah, I fell off the blog horse.  It happens to the best of us, right?  I guess I'm finding a bizarre parallel in my blogging life, and this is it:

The better my life gets, the less I have to blog about.

Isn't that kind of weird?  You would think that when you're on top of the world, you'd want to shout it from the rooftops, tell strangers on the street (or on the internet) about it until someone tapes your mouth shut.

But for some reason, I only feel truly inspired to blog when there's some kind of drama going on.  So let's be honest.

Drama sells.

If you don't believe me, just watch the Bachelor.  Cross-eyed ex-Hooters girls with serious hair extension issues sell magazines.  Drama queens who are cute and blonde and have to leave reality shows so they can become the next Bachelorette sell television time slots.

Drama keeps 'em coming back.

So I've decided I need me some serious drama. Unfortunately, I don't know where to find it.

I can't get it from Hubs - he's way too reliable and sensitive to cause any kind of unpleasantness worth writing about. (Unless he does something like this again.  Let's keep our finger's crossed.)

I can't get it from my job.  Okay, I could, but I wouldn't be able to write about it because I'd get fired.  Although, that would create drama, but it would also induce a coma-like state for the next xyz amount of months while I lay in bed and scream, "WHY GOD, WHYYYYYY!!!!!!???"  So no dice, there.

I can't get it from my children because they're little angels who kick my ass at Mario Kart.  How could I complain about that?

No, the truth is, the only drama I can recall is from my past.  Those awful and awkward moments that occurred in the far reaches of my memory.  I guess it really shouldn't be a surprise to you, considering this blog mostly consists "omg, I can't believe she wrote about that" experiences.

Therefore, I vow to start blogging again.  But you must know that 90% of it is going to be strange and uncomfortable moments I've experience over the past (nearly) 29 years, purely intended to make you laugh and praise Jesus that you aren't me. 

It's funny because I started this blog as a way to up-date friends and family about the comings and goings in our lives.

But that's what Facebook is for.

And so...prepare yourself to learn more about me than you ever thought you'd want to know. Seriously.
