My husband is coming! My husband is coming!

Quick! Everybody hide!

No, wait! Everybody look busy!

No, no, no . . . everybody look interested!

My husband asked me for my blog address today. He's already found our family blog and now he's on his way over here.

He's never just popped in on me like this before. He's never even dropped by. He's never even read anything I've written before (well, once he started a story but got side tracked and never got back to it.) So why now?

Do you think he's checking up on me?
Does my hair look okay?
Does this font make me look fat?

What! Does! He! Want!?

I got all flustered when he said he was coming and I did something really embarrassing. Something I haven't done since Valentines day in high school when I sent myself 5 roses and 18 pink heart shaped cookies so everyone in my algebra-for-crash-test-dummies class would think someone loved me.

I'm so ashamed of myself. It's not like I have anything to prove ! Just because I've been telling him for years and years and years, I CAN WRITE! I PROMISE I CAN DO THIS!

But I cracked and I started following myself from all my other blogs. See that girl, with the brown hair? The who-cares-if-my-husband-drops-by-and-I-only-have-4-followers looking girl? That's me! And now my kids are following me too (which they should, I AM their mother, after all). And I even created blogs just so I could follow myself and now I 'm going to break into every one of my loved one's blogs and make them follow me too.

Can I help it if it's a blog eat blog world?

But do you think he'll notice?

And if I could follow myself, I would, but . . . wait . . . hey, I'm following myself now!

I feel so . . . dirty!

(But I just want to be loved, is that so wrong?)

Dude - I am in the middle of a post directing all my followers to your blog, but it looks like you have darn near as many followers as I do, so I guess I'll just shove that project further back on the burner!

Following your own blog.... :shakes head: Pathetic!

I always tell my husband when he should read the blog, because I posted something embarrassing about him. I like to get everything out in the open.

Your blog looks especially beautiful today.

My husband gave my blog address to my mother-in-law. She comes. Regularly. I know that my man just looks at the pictures and tells me that he reads, so I feel pretty comfy saying whatever. His mother however...

Have you thought about a decoy blog? I know I have.

Also I'm following you already! (You do have more followers than I do though. I think it's because you are cuter.) Don't worry your husband will love you regardless of how many people follow you!

Girl, I am always jealous of how good you look in that font. It's VERY slimming and does a booty good. :-)

SUCH a funny post!

Your husband doesn't know about this blog? Then what do you tell him you're doing at two o'clock in the morning?
I've done all I can do, I've been following you since the beginning. Sorry I only have one profile.

LOL. I make Dan read our blog
( rolling eyes)
I love your blog and at least you do have followers. I have zero, zilch, nada, niente :)

Girls, I can only say thank you for your support during my little crisis. I will shower blessings upon you all.

Lisa, if you don't send your blog followers to me, then I will send mine to you. I'm not bitter. I don't hold grudges. And I have a lot of power over my particular group of followers. (I know their passwords).

Kristina P, thank you for the advice (and the compliment) I will use it wisely, ye shall see.

Jami, I thought this blog was my decoy, but I've been outed, (by me) so I'll have to think of another decoy where I can lie more honestly. I'm so sorry to hear about your mother-in-law. Mine knows not how to use a computer. Which is so fortunate because she will be staying with us for 6 weeks during christmas and I've always wanted to write a book about the little darling. LOVE YOU, DIXIE Darling. (I actually call her that).

I am LoW, what the heck is your real name? Thank you for being jealous of my font. It means the world to me.

Mary, you need to get another profile. I need you more than ever now. ;)

Emily, YOU NEED a following! Everyone FOLLOW THAT BLOG!

Good night my kind friends!
