I cannot deny that I’ve spent far too much time ruminating over the future of HitchDied now that I’m not planning a wedding. The way I usually shut down the conversation in my head was to say, “You’ll cross that bridge when you get to it. You have all those posts you’ve been dying to share for months but had to keep quiet on to avoid spoiling the actual wedding guests (like the story of how my one-of-a-kind wedding dress came to be) and plenty new to say about the wedding itself. Let this be a problem for Future Robin.”
What that rationalization failed to account for is the awkwardness of shifting from blogging about what is happening presently to blogging about past events. All of the blog posts I’ve half-written in my head recently are about things like “The Grand Canyon sure is big!” or “Where do we put all this STUFF we somehow deserve for being married… oooh electric tea kettle! TEA BREAK!” or “Holy kibbles, StuKitty got FAT when we were on vacay; do they make a feline P90X program?” or “I cut off all my hair, yikes!” Basically: stuff that is going on right now. It doesn’t help that the wedding feels like it happened so long ago I’m half-convinced there were pterodactyls there.
But I know you want to read more about the wedding, and I promise I will tell you all about it. I wish there were a day of the week that started with R so I could easily assign it as “Recap Rouxday” and plow through the story all scheduled-like. But until they reorganize the calendar on my behalf, I’ll just be intermittently writing about the wedding vs. writing about newlywed life. Hopefully this will ease the terrifying transition from Weddding Blog to Whatever Blog.
Meanwhile: how is married life? Well, at age 27, I have my first-ever hickey. I think that means I’m doing all right.
