What is the Meaning of This?

Nope, this isn't going to be about being confronted by your parents as a teenager, although goodness knows I have heard that question too many times to count.

I wasn't going to write an entry today, because I couldn't think of anything particularly exciting to write.

But then I thought, perhaps I should explore just where I am going with this blog thing, as all 5 of you who are kind enough to read really want to know. (Insert laughter here)

I got to thinking about who the heck am I to think that people would actually want to read what I write? Who cares? Am I really writing this blog for an audience or just for my own self-gratification? (now, now, get your mind out of the gutter) But, I am the type of person who is into all kinds of self-gratification (seriously, GET IT OUT) and I enjoy seeing my thoughts put up on my computer screen. It makes me feel important and special when I view my blog, and that has been a type of therapy for me since I began writing it.

Now what kind of pathetic loser am I that gets a rush out of seeing her words "published?" An unabashed loser, my friends. A loser of the largest proportions, a late-comer to the "mommy blog" party. Actually, I never really got an invite to the party, I totally crashed it.

But this really is a very cheap and easy therapy for me, so I think I will plug on. As long as I don't get any grandiose ideas of my importance, or focus too hard on my complete lack of importance, I think I will do just fine.

Yeah, I came late, too, but at least we weren't quoted in the NYTimes and labeled as "self-absorbed"! ;) I love your blog.
