For those of you who may not read my other blog, I thought I’d share with you why I’ve been sort of MIA lately. What you may not know, is that I have been unemployed for over 7 months. Being laid off was one the most challenging times of my life. But, it did actually afford me some opportunities that I otherwise may not have had.
- An incredible amount of downtime at my house
- The free time to really pay attention to hubby’s idiosyncrasies
- Enough downtime to become irritated by many of the aforementioned idiosyncrasies
- So much free time that I started to think about sharing my stories with other women around the world
And then… The Hubby Diaries was born.
Being unemployed was the perfect time to start & maintain 2 blogs… until of course, my furious job hunting finally paid off. And this is why I’ve been completely thrown off my blogging schedule.
I recently started a new job and while hubby still does plenty of things I don’t understand, and I still have plenty of stories to share, I am in the midst of trying to adjust to a new schedule. So, if you are a regular reader and you’re wondering what happened to me, that’s what’s going on. Maybe you’re thinking that I’ve finally locked hubby in a closet, or hit him too hard with that wooden spoon. Maybe you think I’m not sure how to continue blogging about a hubby that’s stuffed into a foot locker. I can assure you that’s not the case. I still love my hubby dearly and he still does plenty of blog-worthy things. So, please bear with me as I try to settle into a new job and a new schedule.
In the meantime, I’ll leave you with this….
Just last night we ordered Chinese food. Hubby was in his Man Cave playing video games. The door bell rings, I yell for hubby. He ignores me. I go to the door… I have to find the money to pay the guy, hold the dog, take the Chinese food, worry that the poor delivery guy is gonna bite it on my front porch because we haven’t (hubby hasn’t) put any de-icer on our steps and they are a sheet of ice. FINALLY hubby shows up to assist me. Then he shares his frustration that he had to leave his game mid-play and that our neighbor Vinny has probably stabbed him to death.
Yes, you read that correctly… hubby couldn’t come up quickly enough to help me orchestrate the money, dog, food exchange for our Chinese food delivery, because he was worried about our neighbor having the upper hand in the video game they were playing online.
