Oh hi there! I know, I know, it’s been days since I last wrote anything. I attended Blissdom in Nashville and didn’t have a chance to write before leaving. Normally this wouldn’t matter even one, tiny bit, but this time I left up such an angsty post! I had every intention of writing something funny or a posting a cute picture of a kid or ANYTHING ELSE BUT THAT before the conference, but I just didn’t get a chance.
As always, from the very bottom of my heart, THANK YOU for your kind words and for your own personal stories regarding my State of our Marriage and rotten parenting worries. Each of your comments meant such a great deal to me. One in particular, from Rima, ended with a quote that I ADORE and want framed or tattooed somewhere on my body. I’m leaning towards framed rather than tattooed.
“Let everything happen to you – the beauty, the terror. Just keep going, no feeling is final.” ~Rilke
Is that not perfect?! Thank you, Rima, truly.
I took your words and heart felt advice and talked to Tate before leaving for Nashville. I knew that leaving with such a heavy burden on my heart and on my mind would have furthered the rift in our marriage. In my mind, I planned to sit Tate down and have our much needed talk, but only after I had completely gotten ready for the next day’s departure. Tate, however, decided to confront ME while I was in the middle of preparations.
Unfortunately I was completing a VERY IMPORTANT pre-conference beauty ritual when he decided it was time to talk. I had just put whitening strips on my teeth. How sherioush a convershation can you reary have when you’re wearing whitening shtripsh? Yeah, I don’t know. We might need to have a do-over very serious conversation since it was hard for both of us not to laugh with spit and speech impediments flying out of my mouth.
At least it was a start.
