Dear family and friends,
This blog does not exist to frighten you with my innermost thoughts of stress and desperation. It is actually quite the opposite. It's an outlet to maintain my sanity. If I have to worry about every thing I write here causing you to worry about me, I'm going to start to censor myself--and actually already have to a degree. This is bad because my blog is becoming a place where I have to weigh the pros and cons of blogging about what is really on my mind. That bums me out.
If I am ever seriously stressed beyond my own ability to cope, I will call you. You won't have to find out about it by moseying over to my blog. I promise. I appreciate that you all care so much about me (three of you have expressed concern over my last post, my own father included). But please take what you read here for what it is. Me venting. We all have our own outlets. This is mine.
Now let's all take a deep breath and eat a cookie.
