I loved your post about the dentist. I can't believe that you posted it! as stated by my neighbor Kristin Friday night as we sat in our neighbor Sheila's driveway.
Technically Kristin, that isn't a question, but it does bring up a point I will address. Kristin was referring to my post Soon To Be Royalty. While at the dentist I was afflicted with a small amount of gastrointestinal distress. I totally admit to hesitating about publishing that post. It sort of steps on the toes of good taste. But in the end I decided to do it because for one thing, I really didn't think I overstepped the bounds of TMI and second, who hasn't faced the same situation? Maybe yours wasn't at the dentist, but it was somewhere public and in a situation difficult to excuse yourself.
So what do you do in that situation? asked by Kristin
Thankfully, I never had to find out. If someone else finds out, be sure to let me know.
Aren't you worried that you'll scare people off posting weird stuff like that?
Apparently I already have. I've lost a few followers this week. Maybe it's the dentist post. Maybe it's because I let time elapse between posts, again. Bottom line is I could play it safe and be boring or I can push the envelope (well mine anyway) and have fun. You have no idea how many times I've written something and my finger has hovered over the publish key. I look back now on some of those posts (The Dishwasher Repairman Cometh, or Not, The Seventh Food Group, Tidy Tuesday just to name a few) and I laugh because now they seem tame, but at the time I hesitated. Did I go too far?I asked myself as the post went into cyber space. In the end, I've decided to just be me. I'm not everyone's cup of tea and that's okay. A few years ago I would have been devastated by it, but then I turned 40 and I didn't care (as much) anymore. Truth be told, I've thought about getting rid of that Followers button. Someday you just might see it gone. I don't want it to keep me from doin' my thang.
Mom, stop talking like that!
That could have been said by 4 of my 6 children. It's anybody's guess which one.
That is soooo Cool!!!!! Can I send Lily Wen and Graeme for training at your house? They need to learn a skill too! A comment from Margaret M. in regards to my post The Swank Family Economic Recovery Plan
Margaret, but of course! You know, one can never have too many life skills and baristaing isn't Emma's one and only skill.
She's begun her apprenticeship in pie making.
Now lest you think Emma is the only one working here, Ryan will soon be starting his own lawn service.
He's been getting a lot of practice in with his bubble lawn mower. Look for an annoying flyer in your doorway soon.
Speaking of that sweet little Ryan, is he so sweet all the time?
Uh, no. If the lawn mowing job doesn't pan out for Ryan he has a back up career as a Pro Wrestler. Lately I'll hear Emma's call of distress and upon investigation, I find that Ryan has pinned her to the floor by laying on top of her. Then tonight as I was putting laundry away in the little one's room (blogger say what? Did she say "putting laundry away?"), Emma was screaming and I found Ryan sitting on her head in the rocking chair. Words you never expect to say to your child: "Ryan don't sit on your sister's head." But that being said, his sweetness far surpasses his orneriness. Nobody can be sweet all the time, not even me. ;>)
How's your eHarmony experience going?
Ugh. I've only been on one date, partly because I only answer guys questions every 5 days or so, which tends to slow things down a bit. I've thought about stopping, but I'll give it another month, maybe. That new guy from Kansas who's main interest is hunting and fishing, looks like he's a grungy cowboy, and has been unemployed for awhile just keeps pulling me back in. If only he would ask me out. *** sigh****
Anything exciting coming up?
Nope, dull as dirt here. Except that Trace's girlfriend Cody and her little boy Gauge will be moving up here next weekend. We're all very excited to meet them both! No Food Network conference calls, although Julia and I are lovin' watching Food Network Challenge Last Cake Standing, no featured blogger, no free tickets to anything. However, my 300 post is looming ahead of me and I'm trying to figure out what to do for a giveaway. You all haven't been clicking on ads because my revenue's are stinky! Remember, the money I make from those ads is the money that purchases giveaway items! Stinky revenues mean small giveaways.
