An Apology Letter To My Blog

Dear Blog,

I hope this letter finds you well. I owe you a bit of an apology and an explanation. You have been sorely neglected over the last month or so and I feel terrible about it.

I miss you so very much and I hope you will accept my apology as I slowly try to regain your trust.

Please let me explain: There's a lot of crap going on in Aliville lately. And by "crap" I don't just mean "we've been really busy." I won't go into details, because you're just a one-year-old and you wouldn't understand it. Plus Blog, you're my outlet for funny stuff and while I'd probably benefit from putting it on paper, you're just not the one to tell. It's really NOT funny in the slightest. Maybe I'll write a book, make a million bucks and you and I can run off to Tahiti together.

And while you're so important to me, JakeRyan and the Kids still have to come first. Please don't cry. Between soccer, dance, a vacation and increased work demands, the little rendezvous that you and I enjoyed have become few and far between and it is breaking my heart. Gone are the days when I could just sneak over on my lunch break to cavort with you before returning to work. How I miss those special times we shared.

Oh sweet Blog, let's remember the happier days like when I wrote about Braless Butt Shorts, my delusional kid calling himself "smoking hot," or the first time you met Mike Wazowski. Good times Blog, good times. I have such fond memories.

It's not that I haven't had things I want to talk to you about. Oh I have!!! It's just that the "crap" is sucking the life out of me. Please know that soon I'll be back and soon we can return to our old selves frolicking together as if we were in a Viagra commercial. Riding bikes or snuggling on the beach perhaps?

Just wait for me Blog. I'll be back soon.

Love,
Ali

P.S. I've included a recent photo to help ease your pain in my absence. I know. It's dreadful. I couldn't even be bothered to take the red-eye out. I tell you - the life is being sucked out of me.

  6. Life and vertigo have gotten in the way of not only paying attention to my own blog but my friend's blogs too. I miss everyone. I never knew I could be so attached to blogging but it really has taken a piece of my heart. I hope life calms down for you and out of all of the crap some beautiful flowers grow! xo

  8. I'm so glad to see someone else out there living so much that she cannot possibly take the time to write about it! Kinda sucks, but then again, I'm certainly not bored!!!

  10. It's so tough sometimes. It's perhaps the biggest irony of blogging- sometimes the very life we write about keeps us so busy, we don't have time to blog! The great thing is that our blogs are always here waiting :)

  12. I don't know what this crap is but I've got experience with it at my house and can tell you that sometimes keeping stuff personal is the best policy.
    Thinking of you.
