Dear Blog:

I have neglected you. There have been so many opportunities for me to type away some humorous insights about the daily struggle that is life Longstreet. Whether it could have been waxing poetic on the different types of boogers I find in my nose or lamenting on a N.E. Heartbreak, I have let you down.

I do have things to say... some sad, some funny, some sad but funny (if only because you may get a kick out of my misery.)

The truth is, I am mostly afraid (at least when it comes to the serious stuff) -- I can write humorous non threatening diatribes on the wonders of iCarly or my burning desire to go visit the new Farrells, but when it comes to love, life, and the pursuit of happiness post marriage, I continue to restrain my creative intellect.

I will try to do better -- I will try to be honest --

In return I ask you be kind and not take all of what I say as gospel. Much of the time I am experimenting with ideas and feelings that aren't necessarily the truth... the fact is, I'm not sure it's possible to know the truth... we can get close to it, dance around it, but I doubt there is such a thing as absolute truth.

So I say this, Dear Blog, I will try to express myself more in an entertaining and truthful (we already touched on what that means in the previous paragraph) way, if you promise not to hold me to it. I am allowed to change my mind, I am allowed to discount what I've said if I so choose.

There you have it... from this day forward, I will attempt to do better and give you more.... Deal?

OK -- it's Sunday -- that's all she wrote -- enjoy some mindless things now....
