This is a public service announcement, of sorts.
The holidays are upon us – it’s October which means it’s officially time for our families to want to start sorting out the “holiday plans” for Thanksgiving and Christmas. This time of year takes a toll on me – I tend to get rather pissy and difficult to be around (just ask B). Because I’m an “over-sharer,” if you ask me how I’m doing between October 1 and December 31, I’ll tell you all about my family holiday drama and craziness (I give myself 6 days after Christmas to get the bitching out of my system but then try to have it behind me by January 1).
With that said, I have no idea who reads my blog. I get quite a few hits for someone who has a handful of loyal (and awesome) commenters. WordPress says I have about 10 followers (small potatoes, my friends, small potatoes!), but my stats tell me otherwise. No biggie – keep reading, keep reading, keep reading!
However, I will likely need to be posting some frustrations over this upcoming holiday season. I think my holidays from the past would have been much more tolerable if I had been blogging. I’m hoping that writing about things will let me release them even sooner than my annual 12/31 deadline. HA!
I will be introducing some password protected (PWP) posts. I am doing this to “protect the innocent” from reading about themselves on my blog. HA HA! Seriously though, if you’re not a family member, I’m happy to share the password*. If you’re a family member, please don’t ask for the PW because it will be rather awkward when I tell you, “sorry, but no.”
It’s either this, or get a therapist. I don’t have time for a therapist (or maybe I do – because you know – I am a SAHM with nothing but time), so it’s this.
The first post will be going up as soon as I have something to get off my chest. So far, so good. No one has asked yet what our plan is for Thanksgiving… but it’s coming. I can feel it!
* You can comment here or email me at allthesunforyou-at-live-dot-com for the PW if you’d like it. No pressure – I won’t be offended if no one is interested in these posts 😉
