an incredible waste of time and my writing talent. He just doesn't understand how freeing it is as a writer to say what I want, when I want, without editing, censoring, or restraint. I do love this job, even if it doesn't pay (but, um, boy would it be nice if I could pay for milk, oj, and cereal with posts!!!).
It's funny this topic comes up. Since I ditched the SO (LOL) my oldest (17) thought I was outta my mind for the longest time. Until, I got him doing it. He's a photographer so I got him into doing Weekly Winners at Sarcastic Mom's place. He loves it now. He's always on the look out for new things to photograph to get everyone's attention on Sundays.
Now I'm a cool mom because of all the comments he gets LOL
Good for your soul..rofl..
He does think it's good for me to get my thoughts out to others and get input because we've moved around so much that I have not been able to actually make any local close friends and so since I can do this online in the virtual world at least I have friends there to support me.. :)
Is a hobby..... with potential! Knows I enjoy it, so likes knowing I have something that brings me joy. Also kind of shocks him as he is the TECH person in the house, and now we actually can talk a (little) tech... everyone once in awhile I show him something -- thats when I'm on top of the world!
