You know, I really would like to go back to the days when I really enjoyed my blog.  Don’t get me wrong, I still like it.  I’m just tired of all the petty crap that comes with it. 

I realize that by blogging, I’m sort of putting myself out there.  I have an open blog so that I can share with others.  Maybe that’s a fatal flaw of mine.  I really think that by having this blog, that I’m doing good for others.  I actually thought that with all our years in the Army, homeschooling, and the games I create, that I could give to others.  I thought that I had alot to share. 

I also wanted it to be a way for family and friends to keep up with our family.  We don’t live near to any of our family and our Army friends are still on the move or have retired other places.  What better way to keep in touch and updated, right??

WRONG!!  I get nasty comments because people don’t agree with my point of view.  OK, so we all believe in different things.  But then the comments.  Sometimes they feel the need to make it known that I haven’t listed someone they think I should or various other things.  The last thing to come up was this whole Disney mess.  First someones going to report me and now, someone has concern for me and then uses the address you’d use to report someone to Disney.  I just love that kind of concern. 

There’s so many blogs out there and I read alot of blogs and it seems like nobody ever messes with them.  Is it because they don’t totally put themselves out there??  Is it because I’m me on the blog or in real life??  I mean honestly….why do I have to get all the crap??  I started this blog with the best of intentions and it’s almost become something that I dread every day.  I want to get on my soapbox when I want to and I want to post my games when I want to and I want to be a B*ITCH when I want to.  It’s MY blog!!  I can’t seem to do that though.  It does seem like I have to fight one person or the other off or defend myself on my own blog.

If you don’t like what I have to say, I don’t care.  You can even tell me and I won’t care.  But leave the chicken sh*t stuff behind.  I don’t need it.  I don’t need to be threatened.  I don’t need to be told how to be honest.  I’m being the best person that I know how to be and let’s get one thing strait…..

I will only answer to ONE and that is GOD.

I don’t think he’s so dissatisfied with me.  In fact, I think he’s pretty happy with me because I am who I am and I do make mistakes.  However, I do a whole lot of good too.  The people that matter most know this and so does he.  I will no longer try to explain myself on this blog.  When I meet him and he’s ready to judge me, then I’ll answer for myself.  But over Disney graphics or my dislike for the current president….NO WAY….and not to the people that are only out there to make life miserable.  I’m truly sorry you’re so unhappy with your life, but I’m not unhappy with mine.  Even if I were, the last thing I’d do is bother other people. 

So now, I try to go back to the real enjoyment of my blog again.  I’ve missed it and I’ve let things get in the way of it.  I’ve missed reading some of the blogs I should be reading….and commenting on.  And I miss some of the comments I used to get and loathe SOME of the ones that I seem to get now. 

Enjoyment, here I come….

    I wouldn’t worry about those comments if I were you. Just delete them. Like you said, this is your blog. You can write whatever you want here. If it bothers someone tough. They don’t have to read it. You are entitled to your free speech and can say whatever you like here.

      You’re so right and it’s good to see you here again. I was finally getting caught up with your blog again. I always want to do the weekend wrap-up thing and then I forget about it. One of these days, I’ll get on the ball and be ready for it….on time!!

      You’re right, it is my blog and I sometimes forget that. Maybe I worry too much about making others happy and leave the reason behind that I do this blog. I’m trying to regain it again and enjoy it. Because, I sure do miss it!!

      Good to see you again!!

      Oh my shared name-sake!! I’ve missed you. Believe it or not, I’ve stopped by your blog….just not commented. Something that happens alot here now too. I’m trying to get back to my old ways of leaving more comments, so don’t worry, I’ll be by and actually say something!!

      Maybe you’re right. It has gotten me down, but I’m on my way back. Sometimes it’s hard for me to remember to forget about them. LOL Thanks for your kind words….I can count on you!!

      P.S. You’re pretty darn likeable too!!

    Someone always has to say something nasty and spoil it for everyone else. Delete the naysayers and just do it because you enjoy it!

      Hey Annette!! Good to see you. I finally got all caught up with you and I see you’re doing the same. I do enjoy it when you stop by. Thanks for the comment and encouragement!!

    I’ve had some loo-loos post on my blogs too and I just ignore them. They want attention and I refuse to give it to them. Sometimes they misunderstand what I post and I try to explain it, but they never seem to “get” it. Oh, well. Life is too short and I want to enjoy it. 🙂
