I've been busy, been emotional, been erratic. . . not a good combination for posting on blogger. Or Facebook, but I've definitely continued that.
I use my FB status updates as ways to communicate with certain people (my boyfriend, for instance. . . since I'm still LEGALLY married and not even allowed --by the court-- to have pictures of him interacting with Carrot up on FB) in code. . . I use song lyrics (that's my favorite way. . . b/c then if someone gets pissed off or "all up in my business" I can just say that it was a song lyric. . . no big! lol), quotes from movies or TV shows, quotes from my Carrot. . . hell, I'm GOOD at FB code now.
But I couldn't think of a way to make that work for blogging.
I've been in a draught. I have felt ABSOLUTELY NO spark of creativity.
Not that I do NOW either. . .
but sometimes if you just hop up on the saddle (or some other silly euphemism), it'll COME to you! Or at least that's what I'm hoping.
My mom was out of town for two weeks. The first weekend I had a girl over. We played "I'll show you mine if you show me yours" ---it was great fun.
THE REST OF THE TIME I "played house" with Shocker. And THAT was wonderful.
I very much enjoyed spending that much time with him, seeing him interact day in and day out with Carrot, having Firecrotch (a bestie) around him, etc. . . it was all good.
But I'm not sure I'm ready to move in with him.
We'd been discussing that. . . moving forward with getting his house ready to sell so we could look (on MY side of town) for a place together, even choosing a school district.
I love him--no question there.
I plan on marrying him--again, this is a "sure thing."
But I'm not sure I'm ready to move in. And there were some issues (mostly just hurt feelings-- on both sides) when I told him that I suspected that this might be the case.
I think we've worked through this. . .
we're definitely NOT moving backwards, but I think we might be slowing the rate of our moving forwards. And that's NOT altogether a bad thing.
I think we're both just feeling each other out, double-checking our pacing and our intensity. . . and, after another doozy of a fight about progress and potential last night, I think we're both pretty content knowing that we're BOTH in this for "the long haul." <---his words, not mine. :-)
On an entirely UNRELATED note (except that they both KINDA deal with men), my divorce MAY BE going through!!! Yeah, don't get too excited; I've reported this before only to discover that my asshole-of-an-Ex changed his mind. I'll keep you updated (with more regular posts). . . PROMISE!!!
