It's all cool...

Just so y'all know. I saw all the parties involved in the post I took down yesterday, and no one seemed mad at me. So I think I'm off the hook. PHEW.

I was a little stressed out about that one.

Sometimes I think I'd like to start up an anonymous blog, just so I can write my REAL opinions on life. I try to be as honest as possible here, but let's face it. I have to sugarcoat a blog read by my parents, aunts and uncles, husband and some of his co-workers. If I told the world all about my S & M fetish (oops) it might reflect poorly on our family's untarnished reputation.

When I was single I wrote and performed comedy, and my specialty was acerbic observational humor. I had nothing to lose-so I said whatever I thought. It was fun-I made some enemies, but all my friends were my friends based on complete truth.

I'm not saying I'm fake now, but I do watch my step way more than I ever have. Now that I have children and a husband who's lives can be affected by my behaviour I feel I need to respect them. PLUS, I'm not the drama junkie I once was.

I have a neighbor who is a complete drama queen. She thrives on it, and feels that it's her DUTY to tell everyone EXACTLY what she thinks, and it's not really working for her.

So anyway...now you know, I have all kinds of secret thoughts I'm afraid to voice, for fear of stirring the suburban pot that I live in.


In conclusion, hope you are all enjoying this wonderful Memorial Day weekend, in your nice center hall colonial houses, with your adorable children dressed impeccably in patriotic clothing, drinking lemonade and eating hot dogs with a big old smile on your face. I know I will be!

I just found your blog and I enjoying it very much.

I used to be a lot more honest on my blog until my Real Life Friends started finding me. Now my venting has to be contained somewhat. It stinks.

I don't think anyone knows about my blog-somedays I want to really let loose. But you never know. I meet someone who was in my x-SIL's sorority, that was awkward at first. But she & I have an agreement on this.Most of the people that I would love to bit*h about don't know how to turn on a computer.

Great news. You can just email me all your secrets... he he hee

Christine said...

I hear you.

I'm slowly being outed in my little burb...it's weird, and I really have to watch what I say. I have met one other blogger in my town, and we have friends in common.

It's been hard to explain how we met...

Sorry I missed that post!

DysFUNctional Mom said...

man, I missed it! bummer! this is why I love that almost nobody knows about my blog.

Hope you had a lovely Memorial Day. Unfortunately mine didn't quite go as you described: the center hall of our colonial was filled with dog hair; my impeccably dressed children managed to get chocolate AND dirt on their outfits; and because we went to not one, not two, but three graduation parties for students from DH's school, I didn't really get to eat - I was too busy keeping my children in line. Sigh...

I think you should start a second blog that's private... and invite me!

Mom on the Run said...

Maybe we should have a private bitching only blogroll. I'm in.

I get a lot of local hits and sometimes it makes me nervous, but so far I've only taken down one ranting and raving post.

I'm glad things are ok. It is too bad when "real life" can get in the way of a good thing. Hopefully it won't have to too often.

Hey, what's wrong with S & M , isn't that what all us suburbanites are doing behind closed doors? Fess up lady ;)!!!

I totally have this fantasy about starting another blog, anonymously of course, and saying absolutely everything that is on my mind. The good, the bad, and the ugly. Currently, my mother and sister are the only IRL peeps who read me which is good. I couldn't imagine letting everyone I know in on the inner workings of my brain.

Jaina said...

I'm glad that things seem to be okay. This is my anonymous blog, I enjoy it so much more. I have people who tend to read, but they're all new bloggy friends, no one IRL to worry about. I'm free to be me. I love it.

Shelby said...

Again...I avoid sugar coating by not letting anyone I know personally know I have a blog.

But then, I have a lot less to lose. It's just me, and just my life. I don't have a husband or kids who could be damaged.

Glad you're in the clear.

Annie said...

I so get the urge to start a separate anonymous blog...I have so much stuff, really funny stuff, that I just can't put out there...

Embracing the Ordinary Day said...

I'm so glad to know I'm not the only one!!! just found your blog through An Island Life...I would love to write about my friend and her a@@hole husband, or how I really feel about certain neighbors, or family...but they read...and so I must be nice...oohhh the pain...
