just living

Things are going well. I'm getting up, going to work coming home and spending time with hubby and monkey.  Hubby and I are trying to go to bed at the same time as I've realized we do alot of our chatting lying in bed together.  Its been nice as our communication is up and our bickering and argueing way down.  It also means my main blogging time is taken away from me.  Not sure what I'm going to do about that. Maybe pick a day or two to stay late.

The other thing is that I"m not sure what to blog about. I approached and missed my 2 year blogging anniversary. When I started it was all about trying to figure out what to do and how to make decisions with some feminist / diversity issues thrown in.  After I landed into my current lab, I haven't had alot of grad angsting to do and I switched into funny monkey stories.  He's still funny but seriously how many times can I tell you how cute and amazing he is? Or complain about him bringing his pillow and 30 stuffies to my bed at 4:30 am?

I guess I'm not sure what to blog about without being like OMG my life is the bestest. Because lets get real, it ain't. Marriage is work and its hard dirty work. Its worth it, as you the work leads to beautiful walks in the forest on an Autumn day. But I'm not really into blogging the minutiae of my life or my relationship with Mr.SM. It would be disrespectful to him. 

Which isn't to say I'm stopping blogging. I just may not be as frequent. Or I'll start going on geek on you and blog about *gasp* science!!! Eeeck :))

the chatting in bed before sleep is one of those cherised moments I have in my mind... it was really a good thing, imho. Maybe because you don't always look eachother in the face (light on or off) but that you are relaxing and can hug and cuddle ^^

I'm glad things are going so much better!

As for the pillow talk - chance would be a fine thing! Mr E Man is usually asleep and snoring his head off within about 2 minutes of going to bed at night! Luckily our morning and evening couch snuggles are a good compensation.

It's interesting how blogs evolve over time. But the important thing is that if you know the blogger and enjoy their writing, you'll stay connected even when things change. So blog whatever/whenever you like, and I'll keep reading!

It's good to read that times get calmer. Also a good idea to reserve a certain time of day for adult talk, we should have something like that, too.

I also understand how you feel, - the stuff I want to blog about are unbloggable (too many work details) and all other things are good. But that might mean life is good. I'll stay and read even if you don't blog often :)

Go geek!
Glad you and Mr. SM are doing better. I think going to bed at the same time is a great way to have some time together.

Live well and enjoy your family. Blogging is nice, but too much computer time is bad for all of us. I watch movies from the pre-wifi era and I think wow, this is how we got along. Movies from the pre-cell phone era are even more shocking.

Ain't that the truth!

Glad to hear things are going so well for you. Your reasons for less blogging are mine as well. When life is going swimmingly, well.. what is there to write about? =) There's stuff to write about, I guess, but most of us tend to turn to this space when we're feeling angsty, and would rather just enjoy life when it's going well =) And I'm with you on the pillow talk; that's the only time my husband and I find any time to connect at all.

Enjoy the autumn!

Pillow talk. It seems of late that's the only time that HH and I have time to talk. So busy. Too busy. Glad to hear things are better.
