As many of you know, my in laws have pretty much ignored us since my wife passed away. I gave making contact with them one last time right before Mother's Day. I sent my mother in law flowers. One of the things I said in the card was, "I don't know what we did blah, blah, blah". I didn't hear from her until yesterday when I received a thank you card.
It started off well, with thanking me for taking such good care of her daughter and that she will never forget it. Then there was a big BUT and then it got a little bit cryptic with things like "my escapades", and "if I showed up at her place with another woman, it would kill her to see that she replaced her daughter" and "have a good life".
I wanted clarification, so I called her. I could tell she was very uncomfortable talking to me when I asked her to clarify what "escapades" meant. She hemmed and hawed and then put my sister in law on. She told me that she had found me online and that she told everyone in the family what she saw.
I thought about it all night and finally put it all together. They found my blog.
You know that I held almost nothing back about my life in my blog. The good, the bad, the ugly and the naughty side of my life for a very long time. They didn't like that I was dating someone and fell in love (i.e., replacing my late wife), which I'm sure triggered them to ignore me. They read things I've said critical of them avoiding my wife during her illness. They read my HNTs, which can be pretty naughty sometimes. They read many things that they didn't like, became very judgmental and wanted me out of their life. That's what I was told yesterday.
To keep them from learning anymore about me and my life, I deleted my YouTube account (with several naughty videos) and I closed my regular and HNT blogs.
That about it.
I will still be visiting your blogs under my old name to keep this blog private, but will not use it here. Matter a fact, I'm not going use any of the names I've ever used, real or not, so please don't use them here. My name shall now be Joseph, my girl friend's Lynn and my son's Anthony.
Last but not least, I'll leave this post up for a while, then delete it. I just wanted to let you, my friends, know why I did what I did.
