|The Dubious Hausfrau goes to Washington DC circa 2010 about 2 months before this blog was created.|
This blog came out of an extreme fit of bravery and a very dark place.
At the beginning the blog really didn't have a focus. Well I didn't have a focus so it would make sense that this blog was a little all over the place. I chose the name based on the sheer hilariousness of the situation. I was not a house wife. Which to a lot of people in our life seemed incredibly ridiculous. Dubious even. But there I was blogging about laundry, our cat Dylan and making cheese.
Exactly a year after I started this blog we left Canada for what started out as 3 year adventure in Switzerland. We were moving to Switzerland. The focus of my blog was handed to me. It crashed into our lives at 6 am one morning at the end of June when John declared we were moving and I declared I was going to throw up.
I'm still figuring out this expat thing and I have this place to write about it. Even if occasionally I don't blog about that at all. Sometimes it's roller derby...other times...letters I'll never send. But the one thing that always is at the root of this blog that this is just me trying to figure stuff out.
I haven't been blogging a lot this year. The reason? I made a promise to myself when John and I rang in the new year with John in Winnipeg that I was going to be more selfish with my time. I needed to to take time and just focus on me. I've missed blogging. A lot. I never truly realized how much part of me this blog has become. So I'll still be selfish in other aspects of my life (I'm still trying to find the words to explain what this means in a blog post) I am really going to try to blog more.
So here's to 500 more posts.
