About a blog

on January 27, 2009

I came home from step aerobics tonight and found Joey and the two munchkins on the floor  in deep meditation. They looked like little boodas and I thought it was so cute that I whipped my camera out to try to take a picture of it.  Joey suddenly cringed and hid his face, and the munchkins followed suit.

It seems that I’ve offended a few people in recent days, Joey being one of them.  He let me know that he does not appreciate me “bad mouthing” him on my blog and he doesn’t want to be on my blog anymore.  He also said that his friends are offended with my words and that not everyone “gets” my sense of humor.  I went to take a shower and I contemplated what he had said.

I  started this blog a few months ago for a few reasons.  1)  I wanted to take more pictures and thought that a blog might give me a reason to work on that goal. 2)  I thought it might be a nice outlet for some of my thoughts and feelings.  3)  I might feel more important if I knew that other people cared about my life.  4) I thought it might be fun to show others how darn funny I am (okay, not really).  I really thought it might help my self esteem and out of the pit of despair that I felt I was falling into.

Like most things that I undertake, I have gone full throttle with my blog, and some might say “obsessed”.  Mostly I was just trying to disprove Joey’s prediction that I would not keep it up. However, it HAS improved my self esteem, I HAVE taken a lot more pictures, it HAS made me feel better, and it IS really funny if you have a sense of humor. I have really enjoyed writing in my blog and I “think” that a lot of people have enjoyed reading it as well.

My high school counselor once asked me “where all this sarcasm is coming from?”  She didn’t know me very well.  I am a very sarcastic person and I use sarcasm to “tease” people.  The good news is that I only “tease” people that really like and I “tease” myself as well.  The trouble with my sarcasm, as Joey made me understand, is that it doesn’t really come across well on a blog.  Some of you, including Joey, have been offended, and I feel bad about that .  I am truly sorry.  The truth is that Joey and he who shall not be named are two of my favorite people and two of the people I feel I can act myself around.

With that being said, I cannot just walk into the living room to find my husband “talking” to his video game very loudly,while wearing a “headset”, saying very silly sounding things and NOT make fun of it.  I mean,  come on!  I calls ’em likes I sees ’em….and I sees that it’s very very funny.

    I agree with Katie! And it is a known fact that playing xbox with a headset on and speaking very loudly is A) funny, and B)giving anyone permission to make fun of you.

    I really enjoy reading your blog. It keeps in touch with my Family and I have been feeling very disconnected from you all. As one Xbox 360 wife to another it is very funny when they get on a roll. It has also been fun to hear Nate and Tessa talk to us over the headset.

  5. Becky says:

    Yes I absolutely love your blog. I have you linked to mine so I can see whenever you update, and it always makes my day happy to read what you have written. Keep up the good work I love seeing pictures of Nate and Tess.

    Hi Andrea, found you through Becky’s blog. Very cute blog. I read the last few entrys, I find nothing to be worried about. I think this is great. I also agree if it makes you feel good and gives you a place to vent then keep it up.
