I'm feeling a bit maudlin today. Don't know why. I started off happy enough this morning. Maybe it's because the weather has turned kind of "gray". We're supposed to get storms this afternoon. Still...I don't think the weather alone accounts for how I'm feeling. I talked to one of my aunts this morning. I haven't talked to her in awhile so thought I'd call to see how she was and what she's been up to. I asked her if she'd been reading my blog. And she said...no. Well how do you like that? I rather arrogantly assumed my relatives would be interested in how we were, all the way out here in Texas. I was wrong. Apparently even my own sister "lost" the website address to my blog and didn't think enough about it to ask for it again. How's that for lack of interest? ha Does anybody else out there wonder if they're just too boring to have a blog? I've suspected I was, but it was kind of fun to do and I thought that, if nothing else, this would be a way for my family to keep up with some of the things going on in our lives. I know my mom reads my blog - she sends me e-mails every now and again about something she's seen. And I know my Aunt Sandi reads my blog because she comments quite a bit, too. But I don't think anybody else in the family feels the need to hear about us. Or maybe I'm not writing about the right things or posting the right pictures or....heck, I don't know. Maybe everybody else in the family has a life away from the computer and figures I should, too. Well, that's probably not a bad idea, come to think of it. My kids are getting older, the youngest is 15...it's probably time I started work again. You don't get to be a great conversationalist when you're only talking to yourself, now do you? I know I've got to do something different. Either learn to be exciting (and how in the heck do you do that?) or stop asking relatives if they're reading my blog (that plays into that whole "ignorance is bliss" thing - not a horrible way to live, I suppose!) or maybe I just need to get my hormone levels checked. lol
I think I'll ruminate on this a little bit while I clean house this afternoon. Yeah, that's what I'll do. Maybe it'll all look different tomorrow.
