I am a blogger and Vince isn’t. He doesn’t understand at all.
He doesn’t understand that anything and everything I see is a bloggable event. I always have my camera with me. When I buy a cell phone, it matters more to me about the quality of the photos the phone takes vs. the quality of the phone calls it makes.
He doesn’t understand that when fixing dinner, it’s more important that I make a recipe I can photograph and share on Lime Green Kitchen, rather than make something he truly likes.
He doesn’t understand that one section of the kitchen can be piled to the ceiling with clutter but the other side has to be completely clean for my picture taking for the blog.
He doesn’t understand that no matter how tired I am, I have to keep sewing because I have a stash report and a design wall Monday post to make.
He doesn’t understand that in the unlikely event I fail to make a blog post every day, the world could stop turning,
But now he understands! Over the weekend we watched Julie & Julia. At least a dozen times during the movie, Vince just looked at me and shook his head. I can’t tell you how many times something happens around here and he says “do NOT put that on your blog” or if it makes me look bad, he says “Blog THAT!”
After seeing Julie’s husband tell her that she does NOT have to keep blogging, life will go on . . but Julie just keeps pushing herself to blog . . Vince understands . . at least for the next day or so.
Several blog readers had told me I would like the movie. Vince downloaded it and I resisted watching it. Have I said lately how much I hate sitting and watching TV or movies? Vince insisted I watch it and we both enjoyed it. I was probably the last person in the world to see the movie but if you haven’t seen it, and you’re feeling a bit compulsive about your blog, or if you like cooking, you might want to watch it.
