When bloggers meet
August 21, 2006
Last week two of my most favorite bloggers Darren and Nabbalicious came for a visit. We had planned the visit for awhile and I was really excited, until I realized that Rob was not going to be here because I had gotten the dates wrong. Then I had something of a freak out panic attack, because Rob is the host in our coupledom. He is the one who makes people feel welcome, gives them drinks, serves them food, and basically makes them feel at home.
I am not sure what my job is exactly, but I do know it involves pointing to my glass and making witty conversation. I had told them long before the visit that I was sure they would leave here liking Rob best, it would be inevitable. And that I was okay with it and they shouldn’t feel guilty.
But turns out I had to entertain them all on my own. Single people who do not have children. yes, should I write that again. They do not have any children and they were coming here to stay the night. talk about brave. Especially after what I wrote when halloweenlover came for a visit.
They were pretty much shell shocked by the crowd of children, which swarmed them as soon as they walked in the front door, like moths to the light. For a few minutes I thought if I turned my back that they would try to make a break for it, get into their rental car, and drive away as fast as they could manage.
But it turned out to be a fun visit. I had a great time. I hope they come back and visit soon.
If you want to read Darren’s perspective of what it was like to visit The Big Yellow House, his post and photos are here.
And now I see nabbalicious has written about her visit her as well, and included what is possibly the best photo of me EVER taken. I must have missed the memo that today was vacation recap day. But it is good, because I had nothing to write about today anyway. Unless you wanted to hear about how I refinished a clawfoot tub this weekend, which yeah, I didn’t think so.
