The snow was swirling around outside just a few minutes ago. Earlier, when I went out to the mail box to leave a Christmas card that didn't make my mass mailing yesterday, sleet and rain was falling around my ears. Not a nice day!
I'm sitting at my computer desk now, trying to catch up on my backlog of 600 or so e-mails in my AOL account. I can never seem to stay caught up on that AOL account. I've had it since
Not a good morning folks. I just received an e-mail from my sister-in-law informing me that I had hurt her feelings with an old photo that I posted on FB. It wasn't my intention to hurt her feelings but I did by inadvertently mocking the way she dressed her daughters back then. That was her business and I had no business making light of the way she dressed them, however unintentional. I love and respect my sister-in-law a great deal and she has done a lot for our family and I really stepped in it this morning. I feel awful. I did apologize but as they say "The damage is done."
Sometimes I just can't avoid those "damage is done" moments. That's like the time a few years ago I made a judgement why the male masseur at the hotel didn't want to give me a massage. I was properly berated by hotel management for posting my judgement on my blog. Again, even after I apologized I got the "well, the damage was done." Sorry folks! Just living here.
You know, you go through life trying to avoid stepping on toes and getting people out of whack but sometimes it seems if you just get out of bed in the morning you're going to offend somebody.
My morning started off with reading a blog stating that I was a gossip. GUILTY! Yes, I am and I do UNDERSTAND gossip. It's called information. Now if one wants to make a distinction between malicious gossip (untruthful or hurtful) and just general information - that's called living folks. No apologies necessary. I don't live my life in a cave. If you do, that's fine with yourself but don't put that on me. I'm a different animal.
So there I have my morning folks. I'm a gossip who also posts hurtful pictures on Facebook. There is one FORMER friend who reads this blog regularly (or so I hear but I believe it) who has gotten his big girl panties in a twist because of certain information and photos that I've posted on MY BLOG. I have no doubt he's smugly nodding his head now and thinking "Uh huh, uh huh."
And that folks is the way it goes this morning. Bad Boy Ron misbehaving again. I'll be back tomorrow, and no doubt offend someone else again by being myself and posting about my life. You know what folks? That's me. The Good, Bad and Ugly.
