I've Missed My Mom...

My Mom has been doing the "snow bird" thing in Florida for the past 3 months. And even though we normally live 6 hours apart, having her several states away feels different. Plus, when she's home, we email a couple times a day, and when she's in FL - we talk about once a week.

So, I've been looking at my blog, and my sister's blog, and my niece's blog and thinking how much my Mom would really enjoy reading them. Up until now we've had a secrecy pact amongst us three. I don't know why, maybe we thought we'd complain about something or someone and it would have to be kept secret. But it turns out we don't really bitch and complain that much - and we're ending up excluding Mom from something we want her to experience.

So, I'm hereby opening up the door to my blog to Mom. So readers get ready. Mama Lou is coming to a theatre near you. And she doesn't abide any nonsense from me, or from any of you!

I bet your Mom would love to read what you have to say. And I am in total agreement with you on blogging becoming such a part of one's mode of communication and socialization.

For my friends that don't read my blog, I think I've cut way back on the communication. I find myself saying, "Didn't I tell you about that?" and then I realize that I blogged about it, but didn't speak about it. Then I do things like resend the URL and urge them to keep up on our happenings by reading.

Because it takes a lot of effort to write it all down and then NOT have folks look at it and still have to talk about it. :)

Coo-el! As Bart Simpson would say. Look forward to it.

Aw, that's so nice. I know my daughter reads my blog, so I'm sort of careful about ... well, certain things. But, you know, it's a good way for our family and friends to get to know more about us.

My sister reads my blog, but the rest of my family...well, it pains me to say this, but they simply wouldn't give a shit, even if they did have the url. They just don't care about me enough to read it.

Welcome, Mama Lou. You're brave, my dear. My mother is just too much material and trauma for me to let her in on the Matronly ride. . . .
