Hi all! You may have observed that I haven't been blogging for almost 3 weeks now. Or maybe you haven't. Hehehe... Whatever the case, I apologize for my "blogging absence".
You see, my husband left for Yokohama on business. And...call me anything you want...but, since then, I just don't feel like doing anything. I am just not inspired. If you must know, I celebrated my 38th birthday last week. I felt so sad that my hubby couldn't be here for it. Good thing I have my daughter here, my parents and siblings.
Since my husband left last Halloween, we have been texting each other, voice chatting via Skype, tweeting and "DM-ing" one another, and sending emails. Thank goodness for technology, right? I should count my blessings, I guess.
Lately, I have been doing nothing but marathon-watching reruns of Dawson's Creek. So you see, I actually have time to blog but just couldn't do it.
Good thing that I make time to take my daughter out for walks outside the house every now and then. Or out grocery-shopping. It is during those times with Maia that I forget that my hubby is far away. This afternoon we played in my parents' garden...by the swings. It felt really good seeing my daughter so happy. Then I thought, if only her father saw it. Then proceeded to think about not having a camera on hand because it was also in Yokohama with my husband! I know, I really need to get a hobby so I don't think of him too much and start to terribly miss him in the process. Blogging IS actually my hobby! But like I just said earlier, I couldn't bring myself to do even that.
You think it's just loneliness because hubby is away? Or could it be a case of "writer's block"? Or perhaps "blogger's burnout"? I don't know. Has anyone experienced anything like this?
Oh well, I won't keep you guys any longer. I know I am already boring you to pieces. But, wait...my blog IS called Online Confessions of a Stay-at-Home Mom anyway! And I think it's better that I get all this out here than have my daughter see this "down" side of me. So, it's okay for me to vent here every now and then, right? But, yeah I should stop this now.
Anyway, thanks for hearing me out. Hubby IS coming home this Saturday anyway! I just pray that the days go by fast! :-)
In the meantime, I promise to NEVER do anything like this again in my future posts. This is the first and last. In the future, I will just resort to using twitter or something. That's more appropriate, I think. (hahaha)
I also promise to post more than I have of late.
So shake it off, Mia! Brush it off! Throw away the negative! Turn on the positive! Breathe deeply. Exhale. Smile!
