My blog is TWO. Really! I had to go look it up. I have been doing this for TWO years, not one. My spelling and grammar should be way better that this!
Now that I realize that I missed my blog's anniversary last year, I feel guilty. If I had just been a teensy-bit late, maybe I could have sent flowers and pretend that I messed up the date. To miss an anniversary by an entire year? I am not really sure how that works. If you're married and your spouse forgets an anniversary, you certainly don't sit there and stew over it for a year. Right?
I have always been a bit of a commitment-phobe. Weird, huh?
it was all the moving around. Or maybe it is just my personality. I used to get extremely restless after the first month or so of any relationship, personal or professional. Whenever I thought about staying with the same person, or living in the
same place, my palms would get all sweaty and I'd hyperventilate. This
would even happen if I had the same lab partner for longer than a class
You know all those girls in elementary school who play-pretended to be married? My
play marriages tended to be very short affairs; then I would get bored,
and whatever the rest of the boys were doing looked suddenly
fascinating. I knew that I wanted to get married; I just didn't want to do it right that minute.
And then, before I knew it, I had been seeing the same OB-GYN for almost twenty years. And the same 'hair-therapist' for twelve years(Don't Judge!).
I woke up one day and realized that maybe commitment wasn't so bad. There's something to be said for having a long-term relationship with someone, I told myself.
I even went back to the dentist I had had as a teenager. And I actually got married! If I hyperventilate now, it's usually because I've been running after a little boy without my inhaler.
So when I started this blog, I did not expect to be still at it two years later. I didn't even expect to be writing every day! I also didn't expect to meet so many friendly, funny, and extremely helpful people out there in Blog-Land. You guys have kept me going, even when I was tired and brain-dead. I have had a great time writing just for the sake of writing!
So Happy Anniversary Blog! This is more proof I can commit. Or proof that I should be committed.
