I am feeling a bit bad about my previous post about my craziness. Good friends have started apologizing after reading it, and it really, truly, was never my intent to make anyone feel bad-- especially some of the people that were incredibly, deeply supportive to me during my rough times. None of the people I am super close to right now have the great fortune of knowing me through my long history of craziness. Most of my current friends met me long after Iris was born, so there was no way for them to know that I was exhibiting a pattern. I'm sorry if I made anyone feel bad with my last post. I think that everyone who is close to me knows how grateful I am to them for their incredible support (and I these people know who they are because I have thanked them, many times).
One thing that is so funny about this blog is that I always intended for it to be my brain-dump on my experiences with motherhood. It is starting to blur many lines for me, however, as many people I know in real life read my blog. I have to be careful about what I say, which most times is a good thing, cause I have the tendency to let my snarkiness get away from me and knowing how many eyes are on me keeps that in check. The things that I feel that I really need to say people, I try to do in person if I get a chance, or via phone or email, if I have to. I don't use my blog as a way to get the word out to folks that I am close to. I really meant my last post to be my thought process on the whole thing and not at all fishing for apologies from anyone. So, my apologies, for the apologizing :)
