Meg and I were best friends in high school. We did everything together. We sang Tori Amos' songs in the bathroom while dyeing each other's hair. We talked about everything from giving our first blow jobs to our first heart break. We had the best summer before we went to college. We both had 9 to 5 Monday through Friday jobs. We spent the weekends at the beach and driving the main strip in our town looking for the cute boys we liked. I remember when we left for college. I knew I was going to miss Meg so much. I remember being rather melodramatic and saying "Nothing is ever going to be the same." Some things did change of course. Some things did stay the same. Meg is one of the only people that I can tell anything. Meg is one of the few people I'm going to share this secret blog.
I have another family blog. It has lots pictures of the kids. It is a way to update long distant family and friends. Since everyone reads the blog including my 80 year Nana, I feel I must censor myself. I could never talk about s-e-x or some of the less pleasant aspects of motherhood. I want to write this blog uncensored. I want to be able to bitch about my dear husband's inability to put dishes in the dishwasher. I want to talk about the frustrating parts of motherhood. I want to talk about friendships and how they change. I want to write about whatever I want.
I hope you like reading this blog and come back to read it again soon.
