Don’t call us, we’ll call you

Okay, so we won’t ACTUALLY call you

Neal reminded me yesterday that we aren’t actually very good at calling people at all.  True, but we’ll email, and that’s very nice too.  It’s just not our last name.

And if you were wondering what prompted this exchange…Neal read my blog for the FIRST TIME!  It only took 8 months!  It’s really taken our relationship to a whole other level.  Now if I could just get my parents to care… 🙂

I feel I must briefly address my incarceration-loving audience since this is the 3rd non-jail-related post in a row.  Since this weird spiral (at this point, it feels like a downward spiral, but I’m willing to consider that it may just be a VERY SNEAKY upward spiral, so I’m withholding judgment) I’ve been on since December began, I’ve devoted very little time to my jailed men.  I still love them and they’ll be back in my life very soon…as in next week, since I have a paper to write that I’m presenting at a conference in San Diego in April.

Neal wants me to give up the conference on account of said spiral and how stressful it will be to write a paper in two weeks, but I just can’t because:

1.

Duh, it's San Diego

Duh, it's San Diego

2.

It's a chance to see my adorable niece

It's the discussant for my paper who knows where I live

  1. Upward spirals can be pretty sneaky sometimes—you never know. Don’t give up San Diego! (Unless you really have to). You can do it! And you can wait to call me until after you’re done if you need to. 🙂

  2. And I know what you mean, Ry and my parents don’t read my blog much either. Maybe someday . . .

  4. Why do you think that your parents do not care? (Don’t answer that question!!!!)
    I think that you should trade them in for better ones…

  5. Haha…when I wrote that (as a joke, I might add), I thought wouldn’t it be funny if mom did check out the blog AFTER this?!

    And no way, I’m not trading my parents…they rock!

  6. Your niece is adorable. And I know this is in your previous post, but I love Google reader too!

  7. I have been on your blog several times… I am just sneaky. I slip in and read and then slip out without leaving a trace…so nobody knows

  8. As far as I can tell, I have read everything on your blog. However, I have to admit that I might have missed something due to my lack of navigating skill.

    I marvel at your writing skill. You certainly have “voice” down pat!!!
