You’re all absolutely right. There are many reasons for a rosy blog– picture. One, which no one mentioned but I’ve thought of often, is that sometimes complaining lets a negative attitude fester and breathe, and no one–least of all me–needs that. As for the comments from the peanut gallery–and by that, I mean friends and family, not real commenters–oh, I do get that. I have had to remind a couple of people that the first rule of reading the blog is that WE DON’T TALK ABOUT THE BLOG!
This is my little venty place, not my call me up and tell me what you thought of it place. But you may have noticed that, in general, my life seems utterly free of other adults, as though I were raising kids in a Charlie Brown cartoon, and that is why. So I will keep my blog of snark, and please don’t anyone kick me off your blogs of varying degrees of sunshine. I can tell you for absolutely certain sure that I wasn’t talking about you.
Meanwhile, isn’t the new look grand and glorious? Even better, it’s all fresh wordpress. I can practically smell that new blog smell. There are a few more things coming, in particular on the professional front, but right now it’s just very good to feel I’ve got a solid happy home.
And on another, completely different note, do NOT take any child under 6 to see A Christmas Carol, and make sure the 6-and-up crew is a hardy one. That’s one scary (but good) flick. Full review here.
