Pre-Change Housekeeping

So dozens and dozens of you like two of you have inquired as to whether or not I will continue to blog after the Big Day. 

The answer is a resounding yes.  I will continue to blog after the Big Day (and yes sweet Malka, I will even g-chat with you!!  Maybe even more than we do now), so no worries about me falling off the face of the universe.

Now for those of you thinking you can come here to see the intimate details of my sex life, you will have to either (i) wait for the sex-video to get accidentally leaked on the internet (ew, gross, I'm totally kidding you pervs), (ii) be invited to my private - Private Intimacies blog which very few of you will be invited to, or (iii) use your hopefully overactive imaginations. (I was totally kidding about the intimacies blog but come on, admit it, you believed me there for a second).  I also don't plan on airing my marriage publicly either, so the blog will remain very me-centric.

As for David?  Yes, he knows the blog exists.  Yes, he has the URL.  No, he has never mentioned it and I have no idea if he's ever read it.  (Now possibly he's confused cause his name isn't really David and he doesn't know I've been talking about him all this time, but that's just conjecture.)

How often will I blog?  Dunno.  Will it be regular?  More than now?  Less?  Dunno.  Do I still find blogging to be helpful?  Yes.  Is that why I am going to keep doing it?  Partly yes

The other reason I plan to continue is you guys.  I've "met" some wonderful people here and while we may not be talk on the phone friends, or go out to eat friends, you have still been invaluable to me in many ways, including your sage advice.  And the fact that you care.  Means much (formerly alot) to me.

On a side note, David has promised me a "big surprise" at the wedding.  I am officially terrified.

Been thinking more about the events surrounding my being fired from my therapist.  Without trying to sound egotistical, I have found in my life that I've touched a small number of people (like my therapist, Lil Sis' mom, Lil Sis - like i said, a small number) and I have to say that it feels really, really good to know you have made a positive impact on someone's life. 

(As another aside, Lil Sis finished high school and will be attending seminary in Israel next year - I am EXTREMELY proud of you girl!  WOOT! - there's your shout out, now stop buggin me).

It is literally the calm before the storm.  Plans are all completed (looking good), dress is pretty much done (lookin eh), there's nothing really left to do except start packing up my shit - which I am having tons of difficulty doing.  I've managed to start stowing the things I won't be taking, but for some reason the job of packing my things is not appealing to me.

Finally, another thing I realized I'm excited about - after the big day I will have officially married not just David, but David's inner circle of friends.  Honestly, I'm excited about this.  First off, a better group of friends may not exist.  There's the really smart one who everyone respects, the really, really funny one who makes us all laugh.  The really dependable one everyone relies on.  Etc.  And their significant others as well.  They have been really accepting and treat me as one of the pack - since day 1.  And I love them all and can't wait to spend more time with them.

So, the house is clean.

  1. yay! As for packing: donate stuff you haven't used in a while - that way you'll help other people while getting rid of your stuff!

  2. Private Intimacies? That sounds like the name of a bad late night HBO show. How about Fifty Shades of Cymbaline?

  3. COJ - for sure. Wasn't planning on throwing it out. Was gonna let my mom dispose of it.

    E-K - I was going for corny, of course. I am proud to say i never read 50 shades. Soft core porn? really? I've read (and done) better...

  5. I haven't read FSOG, us guys are more into the visual things rather than the bodice rippers, even with the BDSM...

    But I think you're missing out - maybe you should listen to a bit of it here

  6. You've touched my life, too. Besides the serious ways, there's the moving away from torturing alot. Alot never hurt no one. Why everyone abuse alot? Cymbaline abuses alot less. Alot is grateful. Much grateful.

  10. Remember a day before today
    A day when you were young.
    Free to play alone with time
    Evening never came.
