Not Blogging

on January 17, 2014

Following on from my earlier blog questioning why I blog, I’ve realised that part of my reason for not blogging has been my home situation.

Over two months ago my husband stopped working for long complicated reasons. So for almost three months now, me, hubby and Elvis have all been at home.

And I feel like I’ve been cheating!

I’ve had lie ins when I’ve needed or wanted them.

I’ve ignored Elvis for whole nights, forcing hubby to deal with E.

I’ve had help with the housework, cooking and time outs when Elvis has been stressing me.

I’ve gone swimming as often as I like, leaving E with Daddy.

What other parent gets to do that?

Part of me feels guilty. Part of me feels scared that I can’t do this on my own. Part of me feels incredibly lucky and blessed that my son and his Daddy know each other so well at such an age.

Hubby has started having job interviews and it does scare me. Will I be able to cope? Will Elvis miss his Daddy? Will Daddy miss his son? Will I trust other people to look after E? Will Daddy and son keep their bond?

And the most important question, with Elvis’ increasing social life, hubby’s hopeful job prospects and my panic, will I desire to blog?
