You know, all good intentions and all that stuff. When I started this blog, I fully intended to invest a lot of my free time getting it started and keeping it growing. You know what? It’s not just that life gets in the way. Blogs are friggin hard! It’s not just the story….I can crank that out (whether it’s good or bad) that part’s easy. Like Mr. Sugar Buns says when he gets home “Talk like Twitter, only 140 characters…” So, ya, I talk a lot. So that part’s easy. The part that is difficult is thinking about putting it all together, editing the photos and putting in the recipes. Top that all off with getting dinner ready for my love, relaxing from a stressful day at work, dealing with a crappy foreclosure, and you’ve got a lady who says “Blog? Screw the blog! Where are my Real Housewives??”
What I’m trying to tell you…you who are mostly spammers and a couple of friends and family is “I’m sorry”. My life and my agenda has gotten clogged and unruly and I wish that I could start anew. I wish that I could never disappoint anyone and blog till my heart’s content. I see many of my comrades (and seriously, how arrogant is that to say that those I admire are my comrades? I haven’t even scratched the surface of the greats i.e. The Pioneer Woman, Mommy Wants Vodka, Hyperbole and a half, Orangette?) blogging several times a week, and I feel guilty for leaving this blank.
Was I unprepared for the demands of a blog? You betta believe that! Was I unrealistic on what I could accomplish with the life I have? Absolutely. But you know what? I’m still here! I’m still gonna do it and I’m still going to provide all of you the lessons I have learned in the kitchen and in life! This isn’t going to just be about recipes. Although largely it will still be that. You will get the real me. The real Miss Sassy Buns…Melissa….the lady who is living life, affianced to Josh, Mr Sugar Buns, and working at a bullshit job (like we all are) and pushing myself to something greater. I will do it. And even though I may not be consistent, I will be here. I will let you know what I’m doing and hopefully you can relate to what I’m going through (because, seriously, who isn’t going through foreclosure these days and stressing like crazy?).
I’m here to express and impose myself on your hospitality. I s’pose it doesn’t matter if you listen to me or not, I’m going to yell at you until you pay attention!!!
syke….if you get solace from my words, then I’m doing something right.
By the way….I haven’t stopped baking…just slowed down. Tonight I made banana chocolate chip muffins with rum. I needed the rum, the dark rum. I had the day off today and I spent it as a housewife. And it’s all I wanted…to be a housewife…with dark rum. Rummmmmmmm.
So, what can I promise you? What can I tell you that is true and you can count on? That I’ll pop up, here and there and most random. That I’ll give you what I want and when I want.
Au revoir for now!
