Since moving back to New York, I have concluded that I was and am not such a half-spouse after all. My domestic output is about the same, as is the approximate amount of time I spend doing fun stuff with my husband. It turns out that I only have so much time and energy, and that is okay.
There is nothing worse, to my mind, than writing a post to apologize for not writing a post. It adds nothing, bores the reader, and displaces useful and interesting content. I would much rather have my reader browse the archives for recipes, trot over to another blog, or switch the Internet off together than to read a post about not writing a post.
