My in-laws don't know about Paint!.
They don't know about Bluepaintred, Where was I, The adventures of Rainbow Man , or Bluepaintred Pictures either.
I never told them about BPR when I first started blogging becuase I know they would have seen it as a big waste of time. Hell they think reading books is a waste of time!
As time went on, I held the secret of Bluepaintred close to me and reveled in the freedom I had to write anything I wanted, Even if it was about them. After all. They would never see it, would they?
I felt completely comfortable talking about marital relations with my husband and swearing whenever I wanted too. BPR was my baby. My confidant, my love.
From Bluepaintred came the photo blog. I wanted to save time for people with dial-up. This way visitors could choose to see the photos but would not have to wait for a page to load if the did not want too.
Then came Paint!
Tonight when I was over at the in-laws, they started bitching about money spent on this or that and how we needed to tighten our belts becuase in six or less months we will be losing a large portion of our income.
And just for a second I considered telling her that I make more on paid advertising than I do with the daycare every month, that right now all the advertisement money is fun money but we will be able to use it as bill money when we lose Hannah.
I need to come to a decision. I can tell her about the wonderful interwebs and the money I make there and she will leave us alone when it comes to money.
But. Then she will know about the blogs. And I will feel censored. And that is Not the purpose for my blogs. They are here for me to talk to - y'all are good company too -
So. Shut her up and lose my privacy, or deal with her mouth and keep my blogs MY blogs.
Its a hard choice.
