We're Splitting Up!


That's right...I'm just not sure it's working out. There are just two very different people and too many things to say. I'm thinking of starting with a trial separation, just to see if it works out. But regardless, we are splitting up!

I've been feeling quite torn lately. I can never decide if I want to write a post about parenting and being a mother, or if I should focus on writing. And in all reality I would really prefer to just write about BOTH! So we're splitting up. The mom side of me is going to be in one place and the writer side of me is going to be in another.

Don't worry, it will be ok. Just look at it as more of me to go around! Now, not only will you find me here, but you can also catch a daily dose of me over at my Personal Website.

So here is how it is going to work. Every day there will be a post here. They will be random, they will be quirky, they will be about being a mom and everything in between. Then there will also be a post on my Website which will be devoted to writing, my novel, my updates and my experiences. No need to be afraid that my humor won't show through, cuz I promise, I am incapable of being insanely serious ALL the time.

So PLEASE don't leave me!!! I love you!!! I swear!!!

I'm going to make this kinda of a trial separation thing to see how it works out for all of us. Keep in touch with me, let me know how it is working out for you. If it's not working out, I'll bring all of me back home and go back to the way it originally was. Or maybe we can talk about every other weekend custody or something ;) I'm sure we can make it work! So wish us luck!
Also, to keep up with both a little easier I'm going to posts links at the end of each blog post with the day's topic on the opposite site. So here's my start!

Whoa . . . had me very, very scared there for a minute! BTW - checked out your website. White lettering on a bright yellow background doesn not show up. Most of the words do, just not all. ; )

It's all about the post caption...

All is well, hope the same can be said for you! You need to post some more blogs soon!

Scott...are you using ie6? What words are you looking at. I will let the web designer/husband look into it!

Yeah one of these days I'm going to get hit with "The Little Girl who cried Wolf!" problem...LOL

I'm getting in contact with Michigan women who are out there blogging. On behalf of the Michigan Apple Committee, I'm trying to get families on board with Michigan apples. Since the state's economy is dying, I encourage you to look into buying Michigan apples for your family or at least drop by our website: michiganapples.com.
Thanks!

for a minute there I didn't know if we had another John and Kate plus eight thing going on here. Glad to read it's just your multiple personalities shining through - and not your marriage. :)

Glad to know my multiple personalities are keeping up the entertainment!

And how bout THEM apples???

Jessica said...

First, I'm glad you and your hubby aren't splitting. LOL

I'm a mommy too, so I'll still be hanging around here, getting my almost daily chuckly.

Scott said...

MaryBeth - IE7 and it's fixed now. Earlier, just the top of your post had the yellow background, and the lighter/brighter shades made the white letters fade into nothingness. Now, I can read your genius completely! ; )

I wondered if my title would get anyone's attention ;)

And I'm glad you won't be leaving me Jessica. I'd feel pretty sad and lonely without your comments!

Glad it's working out now Scott...I was slightly concerned. But I am also concerned with how you see it as yellow when it's actually (Margarita) green!

*heart attack*

*rereads*

*grin*

I look forward to reading both. :D

I have something for you here: http://myth-takes.blogspot.com/

I hope you don't overload yourself!

Marybeth Poppins said...

Thanks for the award Danyelle! I put it up on the side of my blog already.

And I'm with you Caroline, but I think I can do it! (Considering blogging is more like a hobby than work)

Wow, at least you're cool and talented enough to have both! I know I'm not!
