In which I acknowledge the lack of drama in my life and admit that it makes for very poor reading

You guys, I know this blog has been dull, dull, dull lately.

Part of it is because Ted is leaving Primo alone (although that won't last long I'm sure).

Part of it is because the Sly and Doris-related drama has to do with Primo's nieces and nephews and whether he should release money to them or not. I say he should resign as trustee so he does not even have to deal with this stuff, but my words fall on deaf ears.

I don't write about my nieces and nephew and their requests because they are such nice kids and there is no malice in what they are doing and there is no reason to discuss them publicly. And they have not done anything wrong. They would like some financial help and they are shy about asking Primo directly for the money but he has made it clear that they, not their dad, need to do the asking, and once they get over their fear, they have done so.

I don't even know why they would be afraid to ask him for anything - there is nothing in their history for them ever to be afraid. He is the uncle who takes them bowling or plays Trivial Pursuit with them when he is in town, but maybe the money is making them a little weird?

They don't even know how much they have. They have not asked. The two older kids have been working since tenth grade and are very clearly prepared to make it on their own; the younger one has just graduated from high school and is figuring things out.

The other part of why I have not been writing is because Lord Have Mercy writing is work.

I stopped writing my other blog because I was getting too tired. And I have been taking a break on this one because I am lazy. That's the real truth. Even when I don't have anything to write about, I can write. But it's hard. And I am lazy.


I will be starting again soon. There is new Ted drama to come AND Primo is running for office again.

No. That was not in our wedding vows.

Either one, actually.

No Ted. No political campaigns.

Hmm. Do I get a do over?


  1. Maybe they are worried asking about their inheritance makes them appear greedy/entitled.
    It doesn't, of course. It's their money and they should know how much is there so they can make properly informed decisions.
    Our society has a lot of hangups when it comes to money.

  2. I thought he had agreed that he'd find a job, not run for office again. If he really must run for office, what is the point of running in a district he can't win? Why not move to a competitive or safe district?

  3. Glad you will be writing a little more often. Good luck with the campaigning and Ted. I on the other hand will now have my husband home all the time. He's retiring and his last day is this Wednesday. It is a little weird to have a husband home all day while still having a kid in college. But this is what you get when you can't decide if you want a third child or not.

  4. If the nieces and nephews were exposed to Sly a lot growing up, they're probably afraid of angering those to whom they're close, even if that fear is groundless. Sporadic, chronic abuse can be almost as bad as consistent abuse because of the lack of consistency and safety.

  5. Here's to having nothing exciting to write about for a long time!

  6. I enjoy reading even when you have no drama!
