Don’t call us, we’ll call you

May 11, 2009

Have you ever thought of starting an anonymous blog?

For those times when you want to say something, but you don’t want anyone you know to think that you are talking about or responding to them.  For times when you want to talk about sad things, but you don’t want people to think that those sad things define your life.

I’ve been having a pretty fabulous Spring term…mainly because INSTEAD of a Spring term, I’m having a 4-month-long Spring break!!  Oh I’ll get to doing some work eventually, just not for the foreseeable future.  I’m basically lovin’ life, watching Cary Grant movies

Charade, one of my faves!

dying my hair for the first time ever

This is probably not the best shot from my photo shoot with Auds, but I dig it for some reason.

and reading books for fun

Ok, so this isn't really a fun read, but for this one-time history major, it is quite a fascinating gem.

Having offered proof enough of my good humor, can I also say that today was not a happy day?  I’ve never wanted to avoid the words “mother” and “mom” more than I do right now and it’s impossible.  Freaking impossible!!

I’m sure part of this raw feeling is spurred by my visit to the doctor this week.  A visit in which he spent an hour trying to convince me that all my symptoms (most of which were congestion-related) were pregnancy symptoms and was even referring to “the pregnancy.”  Until, of course, the pregnancy test came back negative and he decided it was an upper respiratory infection.

I think I’ll wrap it up there, hoping that I didn’t say anything that would have been more appropriately said anonymously.

  3. Cary Grant is great, but don’t neglect the ever so handsome Gregory Peck. Random fact about mother’s day: the woman who started it never had kids but wanted to honor her mother. She ended up boycotting the day because it had become so commercialized.

  4. Glad you’re having an awesome summer break. It’s as it should be! I’m sorry, but I can’t believe your idiot doctor! Ugh.

    If you do start an anonymous blog, please send me an anonymous email so I can still read it. 😉

  6. Totally with you on the anonymous blog thing—it would be such a good outlet for venting about awkward social situations (especially those involving family and acquaintances).

    I cannot believe your doctor! Oh wait, I can, because some doctors really are idiots! And I don’t feel bad saying that because it comes down to choice: they wouldn’t be such idiots if they didn’t think they were right all the time.

    I feel for you on the M-day thing. My bitterness is washing away, but I have not lost my appreciation for what a hard place it is to be in. Love and prayers your way.
