A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do…

In other words – attempt to keep my identity secret – not for reasons you may suspect either.  No, no this is something more dangerous and insidious that sends shivers of terror down my spine.  This isn’t due to stalkers (yeah, I’ve had them, not fun, but I digress), it’s due to: my mother in law.

Essentially I feel that she’s never really liked me – which is fine, it’s her prerogative – but I think after being with DH for 15 plus years, she’s finally used to the fact that I’m not planning on going anywhere.  While I have a feeling this may have happened, visits with her leave me crawling in my skin, uncomfortable and reaching for an adult beverage.  Nothing seems to make her happy (by all appearances) and that stress me out.

I got to thinking about how I was keeping my identity secret the other day and how I’ve gone so far as to remove my name from all my public sites and accounts (Twitter, WordPress, etc), even making myself unsearchable on Facebook should she ever decide to open an account there and come looking.  I realize I run the risk of her recognizing my visage in an avatar image should she stumble across a review on TripAdvisor, but until then, I attempt to stay firmly ensconced under a couple of rocks.

Believe me – I’d really like to drum up business for both jobs I at which I work (I can use the money… a new washing machine isn’t going to buy itself)…   In the meanwhile – I do drop hints from time to time via Twitter and my Facebook fan page.

Are you hiding from anyone??
