the internets have spoken


Last night, when I went to bed, I was pretty convinced by you all that I should go to the conference. Then, when I woke up this morning I found that a bunch of you had made equally compelling arguments for staying home. Now, I'm thinking on it.

Some of your comments, though, prompted me to write the following Tweet last night:
"I need to clarify that T. makes the Hallowe'en costumes. And does 95% of the cooking. I'm pretty much just a trophy wife."
While the truth is that I do pull my weight around the house (most of the time), the idea that I am hesitating about going away because my spouse couldn't cope without me is laughable in the extreme.

The costumes will get made without me (as they would even if I were here). The kids probably wouldn't even notice my absence. I just like to watch it all unfold.

And take photos that I can embarrass them with, later in life.

Hey Sister,
You will make the decision that is best for you!

I agree with lovebabz.

You know, when I begin dragging my feet making a decision to go somewhere - whether for fun or for pleasure - it usually means I don't want to go. Just last week-end, my sis and I were debating about taking our kids to an "Adventure Park" on Mt. Hood. We had other ideas, but things just weren't panning out and I found that I just couldn't commit, even as fun as it sounded. In the end, we went on a picnic to a local hot springs a couple of hours away - and had a really good time. Just some more food forthought . . .
