I logged on this morning (around 4:45 am - thanks Hubby) to discover that I've lost a follower/friend.
This made me very sad. And I remembered waaaaayyyyy back when - the first (and so far, only) time I un-followed someone.
I was very torn on the decision to un-follow. It wasn't because she wasn't nice. It wasn't because she was rude. It was actually nothing personal at all - I just wasn't interested in what she was saying. But I was afraid I'd hurt her feelings (because like me - her "numbers" weren't high enough that you might not notice one going missing....and, like me, I was afraid she would take it personally.)
So despite that momentary feeling of why didn't they like me!!!!!!! I let it go. After 8 months of doing this (holy cow! It's been 8 months already?) I realize that this blog isn't for everyone (heck it really doesn't even have a "theme" or a "purpose" and I'm certainly not into "branding" it and I know I didn't get into this for the "numbers" game).
But when I logged back in later? The number was mysteriously up again. So, nosy me went to check it out. And it was one of my favorite reads. She'd become a friend!!! I was delirious (I know that is spelled right-why does it look soooo wrong?).
So without further ado, let's all welcome Texan Mama (she's not actually from Texas - but hey! She moved there so we will count her as one! And yeah? So I moved away? Guess what - I'm still a Texan and will always be one! So there!)
Stop in, say hi - tell her I said hi. She is fabulous, she is friendly and she is real! You will love her and her family, I just know it.
As an update on the last post (since I can't leave you hanging....) - It has yet to be resolved. Mainly, because once he got over his "hiding out" and asked me what the problem was - he did it with attitude. And seriously? Am too tired (hello? I've been up since 4:00 am stewing over this) to deal with attitude. I pretty much told him so and have been left alone ever since. It will be resolved - most likely tomorrow. It will all be fine in the end - it usually is (yes, we've done this dance before, as have all couples). But mostly, I wanted to thank you all for your kind & supportive comments - usually I feel very alone and insecure when Hubby and I argue....but you guys - while not making it "easier" per se . . . you've made me feel less alone. Thank you.
