I have removed this post..here is why


Dear all...I have removed this post due to the fact that in my  lunch time rush to try to explain my personal feelings and reactions to a threaded conversation I have ended up hurting the feelings of many on the thread. It is my sincere sadness that I did that since I don't get up in the morning trying to hurt people's feelings.

After reading all the posts I will admit to being sad and feeling defensive, I have copped to that. I obviously saw something in the posts that others did not, and my reaction was based on that.

I made some off the cuff comments in my post about my kids loving veggies, doing Latin and whatever ... I  also failed here since I was trying to say that my kids are my kids and if I write about them eating veggies, doing Latin or making a nuclear reactor in the bathroom it is not to compare them to someone else's child it is just to share something cool we have done, since writing that I have to yell at my kids to clean up the bathroom is not exactly new news.

But no matter what I am sorry that I hurt people, they feel that I should not have posted to their thread, I never meant to piss off anyone.. I have teenagers for that.

My name is Anna and I am a blog addict. :D
I have a list of blogs I check everyday. Most of them are craft related. I read them for entertainment and inspiration. I have taught myself to sew by following tutorials on blogs.
I do occasionally feel a bit down about myself because my house isn't as clean as so-and-so's or because my craft area is smaller/not as organized/less well equipped than someone else's. However, I realize that everyone else in the blogosphere is in the same position I am, at least some of the time.

Mostly I feel inspired by the things I see out there. And thank you for the things you share Maddie!

Each woman's life is unique never to be duplicated in the universe. I am glad you are brave enough to share your life with the great WWW.

I look at blogs for both entertainment and information. They fuel my daydreams. Some of the ideas I can incorporate and some I hope to and some I know never will see the light of day in my home. But they are there in the blog world to enjoy.

I "try out" a lot of blogs for a short time but there are a small handful which I find interesting and relevant enough in relation to my life/interests that I follow them daily. Domestic Anarchy is certainly in my top three. You inspire me to get moving and accomplish more during my day. Sometimes trying something you blogged about or many times simply doing my own thing but I set my goals a bit higher with DA to remind me how productive a person can be when she decides to put her mind to it. You work hard to accomplish all you do for your family and it has never occurred to me that anyone would think you are flaunting or anything of the sort. I admire women and their families who place enough value on nurture and family life that they find a way to have a parent home with the kids to educate and care for them. My boys are getting past the stage of needing me here as much (27, 24, 21 & 17) but now we have granddaughters who benefit from having Nana available and the whole family still appreciates my availability. No matter what the venue there will always be some who thrive on fussing about what everyone else is doing. It's their disfunction and you just happen to be the direction they were looking when they erupted. Turn the other way and carry on. You are grand! Hugs, Lynn

Thank you for this post! It is so true! Thank you thank you! You and your blog are truly an inspiration. Which is what most blogs should be to people.

Sometimes I think the world is NOT big enough for everyone. But, I am glad you are in mine.

Thank you ladies.. I am glad to know that my little contribution to the bandwidth gives you a smile, a bit of inspiration and something to chew on afterwards.

Some of you have your bloggers set to no-reply so I can't write you back personally but know that each of you is valued in my life.

Well, the thread definitely seems to have pushed your buttons.

Wendy L. Callahan said...

What I saw in the thread ranged from amazement and awe to nonchalance (my personal reaction), with regard to the happy, happy, blog, blog world. Malice? I'm not seeing it. The spirit of the thread had nothing to do with hate.

Maddie, I know you personally and think you are genuine and kind and considerate. I am grateful to know you.

Sometimes the written word doesn't communicate as well as the spoken word. We read into comments what we might be feeling, when the writer didn't have that intent at all. Wishing you happy thoughts.....
