REALLY???

Thursday, July 8, 2010

So, I found out where the nasty anon comment came from.  Apparently, I'm ranked as a "creepy blog".  REALLY?  Talk about too much time on your hands!

And now... For something completely different...

Took the kids for a run today. Holy Humidity, Batman!!!  It wasnt even that nasty hot, but the humidity was atrocious! We went for two miles but, with the amount of walk breaks I took, I cant think I broke more than a mile in a run.  It was like every time I got a good stride, I was being choked by the humid, dusty air.  The kids didnt seem to mind at all, but yuck!  Please dont let the triathlon (which is in a month!!!) be this humid...  As Sarah said this morning, "This weather makes TexMex look like a cool, September evening."

(sorry, Maya's a little fuzzy but she turned her head just as my MIL snapped this picture of them in their new (to us- great deal on Craigslist) side-by-side jogger.)

try having a cough drop in your mouth while you run
I used to do it all the time in basic Training .. and I was in Basic in SC! Lots of humidity!

and yes! talk about too much time on their hands .. and no respect towards people. I mean, sure, there are times where I dont agree with everything everyone says on all the blogs that I follow (haha, I dont even have a blog) .. but, I dont post nasty stuff! and Im sorry, if you have something to say, at least use your name .. and, if you cant .. you probably should keep it to yourself.

hey... quick (non blog related) .. are Bobby and Maya feeding themselves finger foods yet? Im asking cuz Aly is only a week behind them and I can not for the life of me, get her to eat anything like that .. she just plays with whatever food I give her... and the puffs, I have to feed her .. or else she just stares at them .. and she still is not using a sippy cup!!!

Yep, you nailed it. They just have too much time on their hands. Talk about people needing a job and a normal hobby. How sad.

Yes, it has been humid! But great job on keeping up your walking! That's a great step!

people are freaking sick!Sorry there are people out there who are like that! (((HUGS)))

Awe look at those babies they are getting so big!

Jo said...

I think I would have to disagree -- your story is SAD, not creepy. Some people may not like the pictures, but they don't have to look. I agree that commenting and saying hurtful things is way out of line, especially considering what you've already been through.

Big hugs,
Jo

Went to their site. It's a bunch of pot-heads.

Your babies are getting so big! Great job on the running, not an easy thing to do! I don't even know what to say about that link. Some people are very lame and have wayyyyy too much time on their hands!

Noelle said...

Awwww....Your blog is NOT creepy! I didn't read your anonymous comment, but I am always so afraid of receiving mean comments. My one mean comment last week has made me question everything that I have written since then.

Your blog is BEAUTIFUL. Those people who talked about it on the thread did seem touched by it, and hopefully it will stay with them so that they can educate people.

Michele said...

Hi Sara, Yes, they eat finger foods. They love puffs and Baby MumMum rice crackers/cookies. How I started was by just tossing some puffs on their highchair table and letting them have at it. At first, they all went in the floor. Then, some in the mouth. Now, most are in the mouth, and they love their cookies so much that I rarely find those on the floor! Maya also likes to help spoon feed herself, as of yesterday, LOL.

Noelle said...

Okay, so I just read the awful comment. What a disgusting person! I am so sorry that you had to read that. I still think that those people on that thread are better now that they have been exposed to your blog, and for some reason I think that your blog being mentioned on that thread is going to touch some people.

Shame on them.

Hillary said...

I am just so angry that someone would anonymously attack you in such a cowardly way! There is NOTHING creepy about your blog. Your blog is an honest, touching account of your struggles and triumphs in building your family. I find pictures of ALL of your children touching. I firmly believe that you gave those children life and bodies, and even though it hurts to be separated from some of them right now, you will have the opportunity to see and be with them again. Please don't let a few ignorant, rude people ruin what has been a comfort and inspiration to so many. Much love.

Your blog is not creepy at all. I think it's beautiful.

Don't let a bunch of pot-heads with nothing else to do, bother you.

Love the picture, beautiful kids! And great job on the steamy run. :)

Reba said...

i followed the link and read the thread...couldn't help it, was curious about the internet weirdos! you know what...i didn't see even one post that said anything negative. everyone who replied said they felt sorry, or how sad the story was (IT IS!), or shared a similar story of their own. must have been some jerk lurking around! the internet is full of them! you handled it beautifully, though.

ps my word verification is "imping" which is so hilariously appropriate to the picture of bobby and maya in this post!! :)

AKD said...

We've had a ton of humidity here, too - my hair has been so frizzy! I can't imagine running in it - you're a trooper!

Marie W said...

My goodness Michelle! They are getting so big! I dislike anons. Creepy? Your blog is far from that. Luv ya girlie!

one-hit_wonder said...

against my better judgment - because i expected to see flaming comments against you - i clicked on the link. i was gratified to see that those people's brush with your blog seemed sobering to them; they were not making fun of your experiences (from everything i saw, anyway). at the same time, though, they seem to have wayyyyyyyy too much time on their hands. note to them: get a life, peeps.

i'm so very sorry, again, that you got a nasty Anon comment! your blog is a testament to the lives of your babies.

and they are beautiful babies.

Michele said...

I agree; the people on the site itself werent disrespectful (even if I do find it a piss off that someone thinks I'm the creepiest blog they've found...). But when I check the list of where people come from, the nasty anon comments I've gotten have all gotten to my site via that one. But, as several have said, it really isnt something to worry about. We all have opinions... Even nasty people!

Catherine W said...

Um, they kind of seem a little confused as to what 'creepy' means maybe?! I agree with Reba, I was quite touched by some of the responses to your blog.

Bobby and Maya are looking SO big! They look very contented in their new jogger, I love the expression on Maya's face as she turns to look at Bobby!
