After eight months we have discovered an interesting point of conflict, blog posts. Specifically, who is posting on the long, tiring, or boring days.
Don’t get me wrong, we genuinely like posting here. It gives us a great chance to reflect on what’s going on, to think about our days and our interactions. Overall, this has been a great experience so far.
But, the newness has worn off and our busy schedules are taking their toll. Multiple times in the last week we have had some version of the following conversation:
“Are you going to post today?”
“I don’t know, do you want to?”
“Okay.” Pause. “Are you sure?”
Not exactly leaping at the opportunity, huh? To be fair we both do this, and I suppose it’s normal. We have not missed a day since we got married, and frankly our life isn’t all that exciting every single day. There are some days when the ideas are hard to come by.
All that said, more often than not we really do enjoy this, and we are glad you all take the time to follow our little project. A constant topic of conversation in our house is the other person’s posts. We find insight that we would not have gotten any other way, or we get to see a situation through the other person’s eyes. In the end, this has been a fantastic thing for our marriage.
Even though there are specific days when I may not have a good topic, or I’m too tired to sit down a write a quality post, I still enjoy this. Honestly, I’m still looking forward to writing and reading this blog for the next three and a half months. Even the boring days.
