I've Been Unfaithful

I'll admit it.

I have been ignoring you, while spending time with another.

These past two weeks another obsession had taken hold; and while I was happy in that place, I kept thinking of you.

Thinking that I haven't been responding, communicating, visiting those that I love here; for you see, I have been keeping time with


That's right. While I have let many of you down over here, I was over at my art blog; making merry with OTHERS.

Creating instead of answering your wonderful comments. (I adore each and every one, really I do!)

Colouring like a child instead of responding to your emails. (I am so sorry Perpetual Chocoholic! I will email you I promise!)

Making cards instead of visiting YOUR blogs! (JD! My prize arrived! Whoo Hoo! Thank you so much!!!)

I feel so ashamed.

So I, like many others before me, need to issue a formal public apology:

"I have let my blogging family down and I regret those transgressions with all of my heart. I have not been true to my values and the behavior my blogging family deserves. I am not without faults and I am far short of perfect. I am dealing with my behavior and will strive to be a better person and blogger my family and friends deserve. For all of those who have supported me over the years, I offer my profound apology."

Whew. That feels better.

But now I have this weird desire to go golfing.

24 People would rather be commenting:

Leenie said...

Heh! Seems like public appologies are supposed to make it all better. Glad you had the the guts to come clean. Bet you can hit that golf ball with a clear conscience now!

Sam Liu said...

Haha...you're forgiven, though I have missed your wonderful posts :)

By the way, loved the golfing reference - LOL!

It's perfectly okay. We all drift away now and them. Sometimes we just need a break from the same old routine. Every now and then I go on a search for interesting sites. It's fun and inspiring to see how other folks do things.

Happy trails.

Ross said...

That's ok! I think I say it for all of us that we are glad your back!! We all need a break! It brings us back refreshed with new ideas to write!

Jaffer said...

Oh no ... how could you ... I waited for your replies to comments ... because I was so sure you would reply ... you always do.

Now you say you have another ... (hand over mouth) ...

... But I must say it beautiful ... the art is so cute ... I'm subscribed to it already.

JD at I Do Things said...

Geeeez . . .

I'm the one who should be apologizing. I didn't even KNOW you had another blog! I just checked it out, and it's awesome! How do you people find the time to do all these things -- and do them so well? I love the Tilda stamps and was at first surprised to find Jesus in your "Celebrities" category, but then I read more. I loved JSC. I can sing the soundtrack from beginning to end.

I also had to Google "copics."

I am seriously impressed. (And glad you like your sweet, sweet prize!)

Talk to meh!

Talk to meh NAO!!


Lynn said...

Whaaaaat? You have a life separate from this blog? You're kidding me? And you think a little, carefully worded statement is going to fix this? I don't think so, sister. It's time you started baking us all brownies! hehe.

Seriously, we completely understand. It sounds like you've been having fun!

Maureen said...

Leenie: Well, public apologies are all the rage right now, no? If it's good enough for Tiger and Jesse... oh wait. Strike that.

Sam: Well, I can't take credit for the apology per se. I have to thank Tiger's script writers, er... lawyers for that one. I just added a few "blogger" words here and there.

You are so right Swu! I was so caught up with art for a few weeks, I came up dry for humour. Obviously I can only obsess over one thing at a time.

Aw, thanks Ross. And today something else happened that has sparked another post. But I'll wait a day or two before I write about that.

Ahahaha Jaffer! Yes, I WAS bad. I can't say for sure that I will leave my other love forever; I highly doubt it. I just have to find time for BOTH art and writing, I guess. And thank you! ;)

JD: When (note that I didn't say "if") we meet we shall have to regale everyone within earshot of the entire JCS soundtrack accapela (oh geez, how do you spell that?). We would be awesome! And yes, I love my prizes, thank you so very much!!! Pru is sitting here on my desk staring at me this very minute. So is the chocolate bar. Which is a bit scarey, really.

Ahahaha Sproglet! Okay! Okay! Whaddya want to hear? If I can get JD over here, we shall sing to you. Hope you like musicals.

Lynn: Hey! That carefully worded apology is gold! Gold I tell ya! But brownies DO sound like a great idea; you've got my stomach growling for chocolate now. Where did I hide that Milky Way????

JoJo said...

Hey there stranger! lol glad to hear you are alive and well and making cards! I do lots of colouring too. I am working on 2 different books at the same time. I love it. So relaxing. I've been trying to do a page or more per week, every week, since early 2002. I've completed about 15 or more books.

Sproglet said...

Tell me I'm beautiful!!

I love musicals :D

Babs-beetle said...

OK, now I have to check out your other blog ;) I had noticed you were a tad quiet, but we all have little lapses into other areas of interest. Just don't do it again!

Cupcake Blonde said...

I had been wondering where you were. I'm getting surgery woman and you have not commented! Some blogger friend you are. Ha ha!! Seriously, I have missed you. But now I have to go check out this other blog that has been taking up all your time.

Richard said...

Bad bad!

Jackie said...

Awww those pop up cards are adorable!

Irene said...

I've seen your cards and they are gorgeous! You are excused. I can see why that would be a very appealing way to spend time and there's only so much to go around.

Tooting Squared said...

**shakes head**
TWO blogs?! I thought that we were the only ones! Has everything we've had been a lie? You don't call, you don't write, you don't send flowers!
And NOW I have a whole new blog to add to my blog roll!

Tara R. said...

It's always good to beat the tabloid press to the punch.

Congrats on the new blog.

Daisy said...

I'm glad we're still fambly...

Rathi said...

Hi.... just joined your blog.... You can visit mine if you wish.... let me know what you have gotta say....

Ellen said...

Every blogger needs a break! Umm yeah, it took me a good two minutes to GET the golf reference. I suppose the word "transgressions" should have instantly given it away. Good one.


Maureen said...

Jo-Jo: Yes, I am alive, contrary to the rumours... Wow, you are busy as well. I should know; it takes a lot of time to put those together!

Sproglet: You're beautiful! (I sang that you know... thank you James Blunt)

Okay Babs! I won't! I promise!!! ;)

Acck VP! Oh noes! I read about your knee... ouch. I already wrote in your blog, but I'll repeat it here. Hope everything goes well and you are healed real soon.

Richard: I know. I know!

Thank you Jackie!

Aw, thank you Green Stone Woman. You understand that when the mood strikes you have to go with it; cause you're an artist too.

Ahahahaha Tooting Squared! Yes, I am a two-timer now, aren't I? (Gee, I sound almost proud of that fact, don't I?)

Yes, Tara, you are right. Better to set the record straight before the rags tear me apart.

Always fambly, Daisy, always! And I make it a point to always comment on each and every one of your posts; even if I am late, I can't miss any your wonderful blog.

Hi Ratz and welcome! I shall pop by!

Ahahaha Ellen! Glad you got it. Yes, I do believe those words have been said before. At least most of them.

Brenda Grolle said...

Think of it this way...if you never did anything else, you'd have nothing to blog about. So I think getting away and doing other things is helpful for your blogging.

PG said...

I had no idea (i too have been terribly lazy making the rounds and such so I wasn't about to cast the first stone).

And hell, at least you are doing something productive with your time. those cards look great! I am duly impressed!
