How are you?

People tend to ask that question a lot.  I ask people.  They ask me. It's cordial.  It's nice.


What if I were to really tell someone how I am?  

My response would be something like, "Well.  I'm good.  I mean, my husband got into an altercation with his ex-wife's husband the other night and we spent most of the evening on the phone with the sheriff.  The kids had a really rough time with it. But then we went to my husbands mom's house and had a birthday party for one of the cousins (there have been 9 cousins that have visited over the last month).  So the night was okay.  Also, I think our deal on our new house is going to go through.  We should be able to move in soon, although this is very risky because if our deal doesn't go through we could lose this house too.  Also, one of the kids was sick today but when I got home, she was jumping on the trampoline. :(  Work is going well, although I am very busy.  We finally got our money back from the house deal that went south so it's nice that I can pay taxes...Blah.  Oh yeah, what about the inspector that didn't show up last week when he was supposed to and came unannounced last night?  That was good.  Also, there's laundry that's been sitting in the washer for the last 3 days.  And, I forgot to mention that my leg is still really sore and itchy from shingles.  I feel better, thank you, but I'm still super tired."

I think I should just leave it at, "I'm good, how are you?"  :)

Should I go private?

I've been debating on whether or not I should go private.  It's not like I have a huge readership, but I feel like I'm too transparent.  I'm one of those people that love to look into other people's windows in the evening time to see what they are doing!  (Stalker!)  BUT, I always close my curtains because I can't stand the thought of anyone lurking and watching me!

Plus, to really put down my thoughts, I feel very vulnerable.

So... Be prepared.  Next time you stop in, you may get a message saying "this blog is private."
