Trigger Happy

Sorry to any of you lovely pregnant ladies who I may have offended by removing your link from my "real-time" blog roll. I should have moved you all to the other area where I don't have the real time links that flash your latest post title, but I got a bit trigger happy last night.

If you want to be on my blog roll in the "safe" area, I'm happy to add you back. Just drop me a line in the comments or e-mail. I didn't like it that when I got pregnant, a bunch of my regular readers disappeared or seemed to have gotten bitter. Let me tell you in no uncertain terms that this is my issue, not yours. I'm not about being exclusive either. I'm just amazed that anyone would want to read my dribble, let alone be on my blog roll.

Yeah, still processing on my end. Hopefully, I'll get my sense of humor back one of these days. I used to have one, believe it or not.

Oh, and I think I've figured out how to move around in Blogger without having to go to my "dashboard", where the Blogger Team is with their let-me-show-you-pictures-of-my-babies-cuz-I-haven't-flaunted-them-
enough post. Hence the reason I'm posting again. Makes me really appreciate the ladies who put those pictures with advanced warnings at the bottom of their posts!

Hey Phoebe,

I would love you to keep following my blog - so you can put me wherever you prefer. I follow all my blogger-friends in google reader.

But like I said before, I completely understand and support you doing whatever you need to do for yourself.

It makes so much sense you'd get "trigger happy" - just shows how in touch you are with what you are feeling.

Peace and hugs to you.

Just wanted to send some hugs.

Keep processing and do what you need to do. You are going through a rough time and were just trying to avoid yourself some hurt. Perfectly normal and acceptable. Don't beat yourself up.

Much love.

As far as removing prego people from your blog role, it’s interesting really how it’s blogging culture to be all happy happy joy joy about pregnancy, not leaving much room for doubts. I’m happy but also scared, especially after spending so much time with little kids this past week, but if my mom or sister-in-law read that on my blog I’d be embarrassed. Stupid I know. Anyway wanted to chime in as someone who is ambivalent but still desparately hoping to have made the right choice.

Hey there- this post touches me a lot. I understand this completely and I commend you for doing what you need.

You do sound hopeful that you may find your old humor and self back, never the same self.....but some of the old qualities you may be missing.

Hope you are well.
