well. oops.

I posted a post here earlier today, and then went to take a shower (yes, at noon. don't judge me.) and while I was in the shower, I heard a voice. A voice that sounds exactly like my husband's voice, only in my head.

It is the Voice of Reason.

And do you know what the Voice of Reason said to me, in my head, while I was showering? is the suspense here killing you? could I drag it out any longer?
probably, but I won't.
The Voice of Reason said, "Elizabeth. Do you really want to leave that post up on your blog?"

At first I thought, yes, I do, SHUT UP.
because I'm not in a great mood today.
but then I thought, ooohhhh. wait. no. no, I don't.

I'm not sure exactly who reads my blog, but the people I am aware of are mostly either a)neighbors or b) relatives of my husband. Sometimes when I write here, I like to think I have an audience of complete strangers, because there's safety in distance, but this is not accurate. I am very likely to run into people who read this blog at the grocery store, or worse, at a family party. And, of course, I wouldn't want to write about things I might not discuss in real life.

So, sorry. Sorry if you saw it, sorry if you came here looking for it, sorry you've now been subjected to several sentences explaining why it's gone.

But mostly I'm sorry that the Voice of Reason has to sound like my husband.

what's that all about, anyway?

No need to feel guilty or apologize for being honest. I think it's refreshing to know you're not the only one out there struggling. We all have our days. I tried selling my children a few days ago. So there you go!

Loved the first post so much I was laughing out loud. I am not the voice of reason in our family, and I am glad one of us is reasonable. You are amazing, and I am so glad you are human.

Dear Liz,

I have a gift card to Cheese Cake Factory-- We should ditch the kiddies and go. I also appreciate the 'calendar' moment and honesty-- "voice of reason" should lay low. There is no reasoning when you have children.

Seriously, now you have to repost it or something because inquiring minds have to know.
