The “Annoying” Mommy Blogger/Tweeter

I have recently discovered Twitter, and yes, I know that I am extremely late to the party.   I joined Twitter so that I could follow some of my favorite bloggers out there.  The funny one liners, the blog updates and blog conference references are just a few of the reasons why Twitter has become more fun than Facebook for me.  However, there is one downfall in particular that I’d like to address, and that is the annoying Mommy blogger.  There are so many truly funny bloggers out there, but then there are the “copycat” bloggers who think they are funny, but fall shor...more

I can't own my feelings

So apparently I cannot own my own feelings. D.C. came home at about 4 am after being in the studio all night and I listened to what they are working on. So far so good, at least he is doing what he is saying and the product is there. But this morning he decides to tell me that he is sick of "all the bullshit" and that if I had felt the way I do then I must have since the beginning.. this dude does not pay any attention to what I say EVER. I had expressed how I don't feel that he is in love with me anymore. ...more
