part of the process

“Where do you work?”

It’s a question that still makes me feel a little weird.

Probably because I have to explain it to most people.

“Well. I do.  From home. I have a blog. A few sites that keep me busy.”

I see the look.

You play on the Internet. How nice. I have a real job.

I don’t even know that she knows it’s there, but it is.

My mom had it.

Slightly different though.

Oh sweet love of Bob, tell me she’s not running a porn site now!

I love writing this site.

Even if it was just me and my mom reading this not-porn.

But I’m glad you’re here too.

I don’t tell you enough.

When I came home from the hospital and decided to keep writing this story, I had to do it for myself.

But every word written with one hand.

Every hard truth shared.

Every funny that you GOT.

You were part of the process.

An important part.

    I get that look too, and I have none of the challenges you have. I actually work for an office, not for myself, I just happen to do it from home in another state, but I still get that look from people when I explain it. As if I’m eating candy and playing with the children all day. It’s incredibly frustrating, I can’t imagine how you respond without punching them.

    I lLOVE reading this site. You write interesting, thought provoking and funny words (I’m still getting over the pool man post!). The best parts of you are working just fine!

    Damn, I had my heart set on seeing your porn site?

    I’m so glad you’ve made it this far and I can’t wait to see how much farther you go!

    There are thousands of us who are so, SO happy that you have gotten as far as you have. But you’d prolly make a whole lot more money with the porn site. There’s probably a bezillion to be made off people with Big Boobed Chicks In A Wheelchair fetishes. Just sayin’…

    So does this mean you’re NOT going to do the porn site?

    I don’t know why it didn’t occur to me until just now that you have to type with one hand. WOW.

    Um, it’s pretty freaking incredible what you do, lady.
