thanks to everyone who left their supportive comments and sent their caring emails. i’m sorry if i worried anyone with yesterday’s pity post. i was having one of those days…you know those days where everything just seems like too much to handle. and Zander’s refusal to eat dinner was just the straw that broke the proverbial camel’s back.
i started blogging 10 months ago to try and better record all of the boys milestones and fun moments and memories as they grew up. what i found was how cathartic it was to just write honestly…to vent, and whine when i needed. to record not only the good times, but the bad times as well. because that’s the reality of our life…it ain’t always easy. but it ain’t always bad either.
in the past 10 months i have met so many amazing people. i have met women who make me laugh till i pee. i’ve met moms who have gone though or are going through similar problems, from struggling with ppd to raising GERDlings to having Alopecia. i’ve met woman who have their own battles with things i wouldn’t wish on my worst enemies.
i’d list them all here, but that would take forever. you can just take a peek at my blogroll (which unfortunately is desperately in need of updating), and you will see so many strong, funny, amazing women.
the greatest thing about this Blog-world we are in…when i need to vent, like i did yesterday, i feel like i am among friends. i can say anything. anything i want to say. anything i need to say. and my friends are there to put their arms around me and tell me it’s okay. we all need that sometimes, don’t we?
all the warm and fuzzies were just what i needed. and to further boost my mood, Stepford Mom has thrown blush-inducing compliments my way. the fact that she puts me in the same league as Redneck Mommy is the ultimate ego-stroke. if you’ve never read her blog, get on over there. this woman is strong, she’s real, and she’s got a rockin’ sense of humour to boot!
so thank you again, my friends. thank you for being there for me. and i’ll be there for…you anytime you need me.
