I tried to break up with you. I admit it, I did. I was getting tired of your neediness, always demanding my time and attention. I freaked out and ran away as soon as things got messy and complicated. I thought maybe I just needed to change you and everything would be okay. I re-named you, deleted anything even remotely controversial, and changed your whole look.
But then a strange thing happened. I was no longer interested in you. I didn’t like the “new and improved” you. I missed you just the way you were.
I would watch other happy couples – blogger & blog – and sigh as I remembered all the good times we had. How could I just throw that all away? Sure, you were demanding. Sure, sometimes I wanted to just serve food and eat it without having to take it outside into good lighting and snap photos of it. Sure, sometimes I would rather flop on the sofa and watch Modern Family without the distraction of tending to you on my laptop.
I tried to go on with my life, but you left a gaping hole. Even my kids noticed the difference. “Aren’t you going to take a picture of that, Mom?” they would ask. “This is yummy, you should blog this,” they would say.
I’m finally ready to admit it. I’m lost without you. I miss you. I want you back. I’m sorry I tried to run away from you. So what do you say, Blog? Will you have me back?
