Now What? (Kris)

OK, I admit having my identity revealed freaked me out. Luckily, I had a nice little getaway with my sisters for the weekend to chill and decide how to proceed. I'd love to think I can just release all inhibitions and continue "confessing" like I have up until now, but it seems I haven't reached that level of openness, plus I feel bad that it's not fair to Grant. I've come up with a few options for moving forward.

Before getting into that, thanks to friends and family of Grant for the fun comments on the blog. Even though I'm feeling totally exposed, your comments have made me smile. Unexpected comments on my blog is one of my favorite things. I've been unable to get Grant to comment (well since he's not reading this blog I guess it would be hard for him to comment) on either of my blogs, so it's extra fun to have some input from his posse.

Here are the going forward options. Feel free to add to this list.

Option 1: Not blog anymore. I don't like this option as I've loved this blog. It's really been some nice therapeutic girl talk. Although, it's not the same now that I've lost the anonymity. So maybe I can have Kris Munroe disappear and a mysterious new blogger, Kelly Garrett, can start blogging about the guy she's dating, (Jimmy) Stewart. Too obvious??

Option 2: My sisters and I thought I could take advantage of this non-direct connection to Grant by hinting various things I'd like him to know/do. (i.e. commenting earlier how I'm bummed he hasn't ever commented on my blog). It might be a fun experiment to see how quickly stuff gets back to him and if he'd take the hints. However, this probably isn't the healthiest way to communicate with him.

Option 3: Grant suggested I just make up some good juicy stuff to put on here. This could be fun, although I'm not sure I'd want all of you knowing the details about our wild and crazy weekend in Las Vegas. :)

Option 4: Post less frequent less personal blogs -possibly have them "Grant approved" which I don't think he'll want to do but I'd feel better about. This is feeling like the option that makes the most sense right now. We'll just have to see how things progress- with Grant and with the blog. Stay tuned. :)

Another option would be to substitute your names for the characters in your fav current read. Just imagine if you were vampires or werewolves. Although I doubt it would surpass what you've already successfully expressed in your blog. Good Luck

hey -

my vote - option 2 is a not an option. if one of the purported purposes of this blog is to help foster HEALTHY relationships, then the back-handed/hinting/guess what i'm REALLY thinking needs to be out. just tell him straight up what's on your mind - what you want him to know/do/whatever. what's the worse that could happen? death? not likely, even though it might feel like it. :)

option 4 seems like a compromise option. since grant said he wasn't going to read the blog, post honestly about what you're thinking about. the 'grant pre-approval' could make for some good conversations between you two, but if it inhibits your honest, trust him to keep his word and not read unless you give him the ok.

because of course it's all just that easy . . .

Really options 1, 2, & 3 were jokes, not options. However, the hinting seemed to work, so now it's quite tempting. :)

i was HOPING they were, but sometimes i guess i go to literal. call me slow . . .

Although option 2 sounds fun, I would like to present Option 5: Post just like you used to and ask the Grant-posse not to read anymore. Trust me on this...he won't read if you ask him not to, and neither will we.
