He’s Out There, Somewhere. Lurking. Waiting. Watching.

My man, aka Rob, has begun reading my blog. Okay, maybe that’s not as much of an announcement as it is for a MoHo in a MOM, IYKWIM, but it’s something of a change.

For about a year and a half he has kind of regarded this space and my blogging time as my little private corner, the tool shed in the back of the yard, but after assuring him (many times!) that I don’t need or want such a place when it comes to him he’s began checking in.

While I’ll have to stop all the detailed and relentless complaining I usually do about him, there should be no other detectible changes. Gosh, I hope he never finds some of the horrible things I’ve written in past posts...

Ah, he knows I kid. He’s a wonderful man, husband, friend, and father; I couldn’t ask for anything more in a spouse. All week he’s been taking great care of me and the kids while I heal, everything from taking my job of getting the boys ready for school, to getting my buttons buttoned and shoes tied.

He’s been reading, through, in my office when I’m home, and I find I can’t stop paying attention to it, to him reading. I have to check what exactly he’s looking at each time he laughs, to make sure it was at an intentional attempted joke. Maybe when he’s reading I should take the kids for a walk :-).

I’m not sure if he’ll be logging on and commenting, but on the long-up-coming site, he wants to chip in. So you should see more of him, but I’d not expect us to be much alike; we compliment each other more than duplicate. He’s more about sharing recipes than about arguing over heated topics, and not near half as much a science nerd as his husband; maybe that's why I love him :-).

Ooh, I'd love to swap recipes!

And I love to eat. He'll be more than welcome.

Does he already know you're gay or will he find out by reading the blog?

WTF is IYKWIM?

Mr. Fob said...

Apparently, he doesn't KWYM.

I KWYM, but I'm not sure about the MOM. Learned the MoHo a while ago.

It isn't that opposites attract as much as differences complement.

I'm glad my husband reads my blog. Sometimes it gets so busy around here we don't have a chance to catch up with each others' day. He can read all about it on the blog. I'm thinking about adding him as a member (or whatever blogger calls it) of my blog so he can post, too. You know, tell his side of the story. He had his own blog for a while, but wrote 2 posts and didn't update for a couple of months. He finally just deleted it.

Salt? Or maybe sugar?

Still waiting...

okay, the much awaited comment from the other half. Yes, I read thias last post without being told to,in fact Scot os taking a bath and totally unaware. I am a wee bit of a techno phobe and he always tries to get me to become more tech savy. Pandoras box I say.
Yes I am a regular Martin Stewart, succulent steak tartare served on a polished to perfection silver platter anyone?
No really, Scot is wonderful and I expect that any bad things he has said about me are probably true.
Like he says I am showing an interst in getting involved, so this will likely not be the last you hear from me, unless someone sends me a mean response and hurts my feelings.
XO (Can't remember my fake name that Ihate)

Pff, if he complains I’ve plenty of evidence that he’s just as gay, if not more so.

Java: MOM = mixed orientation marriage. Jargon is fun.

Oh Honey, there you are. What? Don’t like Rob? How about Rupert? Randal? Rulon? Ronda? It has to be an R for consistency’s sake.

I can tell you were in a hurry; it’s a rare day when I can correct your spelling ;-).

Scot said...

oh and Java, sugar, of course :-).

[kɹeɪ̯g̊] said...

Seriously, what does it mean?

Scot said...

You Know What I Mean ;-)
