This weekend we went to a dinner party where inevitably there was a point in time where the women were all left alone (to knit or something equally hard). As soon as the last man had closed the door all these women started talking about which one had the biggest loser for a husband/ boyfriend.

I am very competitive by nature, I always want to win, but in this case I didn't even want to play. I am all for bitching with friends but I never talk about my real personal problems with people I don't know. Is this just me? I have had problems in the past with bottling emotions and feelings but I do think that discretion should be exercised, at least sometimes by (most) people.

I have so much more to say on this issue but am censoring myself. Old habits die hard. I still have to reconcile the fact that what I say on here could bite me in the ass. How do you as bloggers/ writers divide your life up?

I don't join in on those conversations, I don't need to. Most of the time when women are complaining about their husbands/boyfriends, my husband does the exact oppostite of what they're griping about. I don't know how I got so lucky. A history of bad relationships has taught me to appreciate him. He isn't perfect, but I love and respect him with all that I have. I don't blog about our real problems, I don't even share those with my closest friends. But I don't think our 'real' problems are as big as a lot of other couples. (I will blog about tiny insignificant stuff like him not letting me open a present on Christmas Eve, though. Because doggone it, that's a travesty!)
