I think I should make something very clear about my blog. I will not and do not write ugly things about my family on this blog. I have many reasons for this, but high on my list are these two reasons. First: It's just not classy. After all of the things my family has done for me, how dare I get on the internet and write hateful things about them for the world to see? Second: I know my family reads my blog. Why would I want to hurt them by writing mean things about them? Which brings me to the offending post. I wrote that post because I was frustrated at not being able to get anything done in this state without having to make multiple trips. Yes, I probably need to be a bit better prepared, but really, 3 trips and a possible 4th? By then, it's no longer my fault for being unprepared. Also, I really thought that post was funny. I was kind of proud of it, because I thought I was sure to get a couple of chuckles from it. Boy was I wrong. So here I am, proverbial hat in hand, telling those of you that I love and never meant to hurt, I'm sorry I hurt your feelings. Do you think I would have moved so far away from my side of the family, and Jeremy's $21.00 an hour job if there weren't people and places and things I love here too? No. Blogs are made in part to be an outlet - that's why they are so famous for their rants. Part of the purpose of my blog is to be an outlet, but not to the detriment of my relationship with the people I love.
