That’s what I’ve been doing. And so that is why I haven’t posted in a while. And that is what I will continue to do because, in certain ways, it has been working. I’ve been making a concerted effort not to let things that are not going well in one area affect the things that are going well. Not that blogging has anything to do with that, really. I’ve just been spending my time letting things–just—be. And really, not too much has been happening. Or rather, the things that have been happening are either:
1. too time consuming to blog about;
2. something I’m trying not to think about, thus blogging about it would be an exercise in futility;
or 3. over and resolved, and thus don’t need to be rehashed.
I suppose ONE thing I could share, though I’ve wavered on whether I want to make a big deal about it or not, is that this blog officially turned 1 on Wednesday. In typical fashion, I missed it by a few hours. I have a track record for remembering birthdays, but remembering them when it’s almost too late. Even on my very first day as a wife, less than 24 hours into marriage, I forgot wish my brand-new husband a simple HAPPY BIRTHDAY. We had just returned to the apartment from a nice breakfast, and we were mere minutes away from leaving for our honeymoon when the phone rang. It was a mutual friend calling to tell us how nice the wedding and recetion was and to wish John a happy birthday. I felt like a total jerk. I had not bought him a gift or anything. FAIL.
So, yeah, back to compartmentalizing. Some things are going really well. Some are going like crap. But all the truly important stuff like family and friends are going well. I can’t complain and I won’t. The stuff that isn’t going well, I’ve decided just to quietly work to make it better and not spend time dwelling on them.
Oh, mini update. The tooth has been pulled. The very generous Tooth Fairy has visited. There was some drama about feeling self-conscious about how her mouth looked after it was pulled, but that is better now. I wonder what’s next. I’d be okay with nothing for a while. Nothing, no drama, situation normal–boredom– sounds downright blissful right now.
