Did You Miss Me?

So haven't blogged since Friday.....I got a message from Lynilu asking when I was going to post a new post on my blog. So this one is just for you Lynilu. :)

I spent the weekend with S and it was a nice weekend. Even though we are only 2 hours away from each other, it still feels like a long distance relationship at times. We have realized that sometimes things get misunderstood when we talk on the phone and we just do so much better when we are together in person. We talked a lot this weekend about how to deal with the distance because right now it will be at least August until we are either living with each other or living closer. We really needed this past weekend to just be with each other and reconnect and we both agreed that spending that time to reconnect needs to be a priority.

S is a very private person. I don't think she understands this whole blog thing and she has asked how I can put so much out there for anyone to read. I had a friend tell me a few months ago that I share more on this blog then I do in real life. I am working on sharing more with my friends in real life and not being so open for anyone to read. I have also been thinking about how my blog fits into my life now. I love my blog, but I am wondering if maybe I do share too much on here. I decided over the weekend that I would no longer use S's first name on here and also not put any pictures of her on here. I need to be more respectful of her privacy on here.

So let's see what else is going on....Oh, did you hear that Obama smokes or he at least has smoked in the last few months. I read about it on the Internet and couldn't tell if it was something he just recently quit doing. I will tell you, if I was president I would probably be smoking 2-3 packs a day and be in a iron lung by the end of my term. What a stressful job. When my parents first found out I was smoking my Mom was like, "You just need to quit. I quit cold turkey and I was fine." I don't think people realize how many chemicals are put into each cigarette to keep people addicted. Becoming a non-smoker is one of the hardest things I have ever done.

Hope everyone had a great weekend.

Gasp! You're back! LOL!

yeah, the Obama smoking thing has been all over the news, late night shows and internet. I guess Mrs. O is all over him like stink on a dirty sweatshirt! Good for her!! I know it is hard to quit, but it is something that everyone should do. Jus sayin.

Long distance relationships are difficult, aren't they? The good thing is, though, that they keep us from making impetuous decisions, with less thinking than throbbing! I'm glad things are good again for you and S.

discretion is the better part of valor...perhaps too much self disclosure going out to the blogosphere is not a good thing. good that you're recognizing that and respecting concerns voiced about that.

I'm glad to hear that your are sharing more in real life with S. Blogging is not for everyone and alot of people "don't get it". Glad it was a good weekend.

Welcome back!
I feel you on the long-distance thing but just remember absence makes the heart grow fonder!

I, too share more of myself on my blog that I do IRL. I disagree with anonymous "discretion is the better part of valor".. just a bunch of flowery prose *wink*
