Awww Shucks

Thanks for all the support regarding my anonymous commenter. I really don't care that they felt the need to be negative. We are all entitled to our opinions and like others have said, you only get a small glimpse of me via this blog. You might form a completely different opinion about me if you met me in person. I think that generally I am a positive person, but I know that I tend to write about some of the negative stuff in here. It's not as entertaining when you just say "It was a nice day today. Nothing happened." Not that I write for entertainment value anyway. I write just to write and put the events of my day in here and for whatever reason, I have some wonderful blogging friends that have chosen to journey with me. The nice thing about today is that I have some new blogs to read because of those commenting for the first time here.

As for the rest of my day... It was a decent day. Even 6th period was o.k. Thankfully I had an aid that came in which helps with the language issues. I did get to school pretty early this morning. I left here by 6:45 and got to school at 7:15. I spent the morning grading papers and I'm caught up with my comm. app. grades. I didn't stay very late after school because Josh and I needed to pick up some soil to fill in the hole in the back yard. We did that so hopefully now the leaky pipe is history. I cooked supper and did some reading. I even unloaded the dishwasher and loaded it again. I also made cookies! I admit they weren't from scratch, but I did have to do the mixing. Now the smell of oatmeal cookies is wafting through the house.

I did sleep well last night. Maybe it's the clean sheets! Maybe it was the wine. Who knows, but I'm not going to complain! I found out that there's a bit of a kink in the plans for my trip to San Antonio. Normally Josh's concert is around 11:00-12:00 and I can hit the road again around 1:00 to head back home. This year, however, the concert is at 3:30. That means that I won't be able to leave until probably 5:00-6:00. It's a 9 hour drive home. Josh said that if he rode back with the directors, he wouldn't get home until Sunday and he'll miss part of orchestra rehearsal. I said that he could ride with me until I realized how late it would be. But if he does ride with me, he can do some of the driving and we might be able to make it. I guess we'll play it by ear on Saturday.

Well, that's all that's going on here. I'm going to put the last batch of cookies in the oven, do some reading, continue doing laundry and then call it an early night again. Maybe I'll have the last glass of wine (not whine) too.

I continue to have people criticize me on my blog and not annonymously. It doesn't feel good. I just remember that people leave negative comments because it makes them feel better about themselves. Elevates them to a place above the rest of us, in their mind. I wonder how it feels to run around the internet throwing stones at people all day? Ah well.

Have a good day today. You know who your friends are!

I think you are extraordinary Annabel; raising Josh on your own and being as committed to him, your classes, your tournaments, your church, your hobbies, etc. Don't let anonymous commenters bring you down.

I wasn't trying to hurt your feelings. It just seems you are so sad or unhappy. And to me, it seems you have a lot to be happy for. You are blessed and it sort of seems like you don't always see that. No harm was meant. And my comments were not said as hateful words. I am sorry they came across that way. I have been through my own tough times and know how you can get stuck in a rut. My "move and clean your house" comment was more like a "just do it" comment because it will make you feel better - no matter how tough it is at the moment. I am so sorry to have offended and hurt your feelings. Please accept my apologies.

Also, I am anonymous because I do not have a blog. I enjoy reading people's words.

Its sounds to me like you should start a blog of your own. This way you will understand what its like to write down your most private thoughts and experiences for the world to see. You may look at things differently and not be so judgemental if YOUR life is out there for everyone to see. Your words may not have been meant to be hurtful, but you should really try to walk in someone else's footsteps before trying to give advice or insight into someone's life. Again, start your own blog, you may see things differently if you do. Just a thought.

9 hours drive ... starting late in the afternoon, after a full day ... ? When you get off at 5 it's 2 in the morning on arrival, that IS tough (8 hours drive on the autobahn is from Hamburg to Munich, north-south through the republic, yes I know in America everything is larger) - all I know is that I'd sleep at the wheel around 12 latest. You'll make it home early in the morning, so the next day ... You'll decide it right. Just be careful.

Well, anonymous, why not blog yerself? Seems only fair, doesn't it?
