I must admit, it feels self indulgent to write this post. But it’s been gnawing at me and I have to put it to paper, so to speak. That’s always been the way I process things.
I was a little late on my Month Six Bountiful Bouquet as you may have noticed. Life, as it does, got in the way.
I got a rather unpleasant email about it. Someone wanted me to post the instructions and they were tired of waiting.
My mother always said ‘you catch more flies with honey than with vinegar’. The email, though not overly vinegar-ish, upset me.
And, as millions of bloggers have probably done in the past, I withdrew and contemplated my reasons for wanting to blog in the first place.
I’ll admit, I have a thin skin that I am trying to harden up. The e-mailer probably didn’t really intend to come across as blunt as she did. She caught me on an off day.
I was going to come online and publish an “I’m sorry, I’m a bad blogger, please forgive me for being late’.
But then I decided. This is MY blog. I have a young family. I have real life commitments. I do the best I can with the time I have available. You’re just going to have to cut me some slack sometimes if I can’t deliver the day I said I would.
So. Cut me some slack.
Tomorrow, I’ll feel better about the whole thing and probably a little foolish for putting this out there. But for now, it’s off my chest.
