By now, you have made your way over to the new blog on the block. Even before new blogger Windy began to email me, she began reading this blog from its beginning. I haven't even done that! She made notes on what she read (!) and began to see a change in me as the blog evolved. She charted the change. Then she to make herself known in blogland by commenting on many blogs. Next, she emailed me and we began that exchange that led to her new blog. As we both celebrated the launch of her blog, she told me about how she had studied the posts I had written over this five year period. She noticed and recorded big changes she saw in me. What???
Now I was really interested! You mean someone has read the posts, all 440+ and has made note of the changes in the blog's main character.... ME! I was dying to know what she had discovered and now, she has given me a list of the changes she noted when reading through the posts.
I am sharing her observations with you. I do not remember ever hearing of this kind of evaluating here in our corner of the net. I found Windy's assessment fascinating. Let me know what you think.
Here is her list of the things she noted:
Then and Now.......... What Windy sees in Meredith
You talked; he listened; he warned; you pushed; he spanked; you began to listen.
You hear him better. You sometimes talk too much. He talks, spanks and then you fully listen.
Hair on fire, bottom on fire
Hair mostly extinguished; bottom on a low simmer, but sometimes still on fire
Needing to be right
Wanting to be right, but more respectful
Providing answers; still inquisitive
Needing to belong
Needing to include
A beloved book on the shelf
Considering shelf life
Sharing, but private
Private, but sharing
Walls up, pants down
Walls down, pants down
Accepting, but having a fine-tuned ttwd b.s. detector
"War and Peace"
"Peace in our home"
There are parts of this analysis that literally make me cry. Building community has always been central to me. Finding the other ttwd wives and nurturing their friendships have always been central here and Windy caught that in reading my posts. Thank you!
Tell me what you think of Windy's analysis? I am amazed by her analysis. I want to know what you think.
Thank you, Windy for the time it required to read this blog and make this analysis about our ttwd. You were most kind and funny, truthful and precise.
