Just kidding! He's actually laying the pressure on deep right now, even insisting that he will take over the blog if I quit it, which in all likelihood- means that he will post a picture once every three years. And they'll probably be of his buttcrack sitting on the xerox machine. Just kidding again. He would be great. He would be even better since he's a lot funnier. He also works in the mental ward of a hospital so he'd have plen-ty of good stories to tell (that usually involve urine, feces, cursing and Jesus Christ, you know, the staples of mental health).
But back to the business of blogging. I used to say I wrote it for myself, and while that was largely true, it wasn't entirely. Because if the only person who reads this is great Aunt Edna in Iowa who only logs on twice a year, I'd feel awfully silly spending so much time on it. And the reality of my situation is that I also write in a personal journal, a baby journal for Ryan and have recently started Facebooking (although I'm already very tempted to give that up too due to a lack of time). So I definitely feel like I spend a lot more time online than I should, and if no one is really reading this other than my parents- well...I would like to stop.
But here's the thing (and I swear this isn't a pathetic, contrived attempt to find out who reads the blog), if you do read this regularly, please shoot me a comment and let me know. If there is a decent amount of people who don't mind continuing to see another 400 pictures of Ryan, I'd be happy to continue it for our family and friends (new and old).
Otherwise, I cannot thank you enough for the love, the laughs, the support and the encouragement over the past few years. I'm a changed woman, in large part because of this blog. I do hope that I can find the individual motivation independent of the blog to continue to do the things that once seemed impossible to me.
