And on that road, we find our answers

Oh my.

I have no words.

I have read your comments, but it has taken me two days to be able to actually open them and respond to you. If you didn't hear from me, it's most likely because your email address doesn't appear with your comment or because I already have spoken to you through another forum.

But let me just say publicly, here and now, thank you from the bottom of my heart for the outpouring of love and support over Monday's post.

Roo and I are currently in the unspoken-truce stage. We don't bring up the subject of my blog, but we both know it's there -- like the elephant in the room.

Perhaps one day, it will be something we can talk about freely and openly. But not yet.

For the moment, I find that I can't give up my little planet quite yet. I find that blogging has become a little bit like breathing.

For now, my breath is a little ragged. At times, I inhale deeply. At other times, I gasp for air.

Eventually, I will figure out my boundaries and my breathing will settle again into a comfortable rhythm.

I'm not sure what the above commenter said, so I can't completely agree. But I'm glad that you haven't hung up your hat. Luv ya, girl.

I'm glad you and Roo have come to a truce, and that you've decided to keep writing.

My daughter has guest posted for me a couple of time, maybe Roo would be open to something like that. I think that helped my daughter understand why this blogging thing is so important to me

Looks like you've gotten another mystery comment.....

but I am glad you and roo have come to some sort of an understanding.

Here's a thought: what else would you blog about if you didn't blog about your kids? If you weren't a "mommy" blogger? What other stories will you, can you tell us?

Write them. Tell us stories.

Love you! said...

I know I am breathing... sighs of relief!
Hang in there, Janet! Roo and you can weather anything!

Jaina said...

Wow. I don't know what to say. I just read the last post and this one. ::hugs:: I know you can both get through this. I'm sorry it happened this way though.

Suzanne said...

Love you, lady. As we've said before "this too shall pass."

Kaytabug said...

Us Janet Junkies need our fix!!
I'm just sure the two of you will be alright soon. This is just a tiny bump in the road.
Love you! xoxoxoxo

Oh my ... just caught up. I'm really glad you're still here, you're golden and would be so missed.

Major hugs and lots of love to you xo

I actually didn't comment on Monday's post (only because I would have repeated what everyone else said). I'm glad you're planning on coninuing your blog. I agree with Suzanne "This too shall pass."

Roger said...

I totally agree with gg up there! I think.

I am glad that you are still going to be around, I enjoy your writing whether it's about Roo or not, especially the birthday parties. :)

SarahInMI said...

Oh man. I'm so sorry, but I hope that whatever you decide brings peace to both you and Roo.


Joanna said...

Leave it to me to miss the drama. Gave me a lot to think about. My kids are a few years behind Roo and I wonder how they'll take some of the posts I've written.

I hope Roo can see that you are very loyal to her. But I hope she will see your side on some issues that sometimes us parents just can't seem to say face to face. It's so much easier to blog your heart out with people you don't know. I hope that makes sense.

I hope you don't stop blogging. I like your humor. Who else is going to school me in the ways of the evil mother? ;)

Pamela said...

what gg said. ha ha.. just kidding.

Oh hugs, just hugs, and more hugs.
It is just rotten to be on edge with a daughter.

Janet said...

I didn't comment on Monday's post, since I'm doing my monthly read-everything-at-once, but I agree with what everything else said. She would have been angry about it no matter how she found out. Which is of course, why you were waiting.
Don't stop blogging. She doesn't realize it, but she wouldn't like it, because you would close up a bit I think without it. (And of course, for my own purely selfish reasons I don't want you to stop blogging either. )
