A few people commented (on blog or in real life) about the harshness of my previous few blog posts and/or comments.
Really? I have read and re-read my blogs and comments. I don't see it. Okay. Maybe the one about Motor Mouth's hair might seem a bit harsh. But in my replies to comments, I thought I made it clear I was just reminiscing and laughing at some of the things people have said to me/us. I kinda had fun posting it. I was chuckling to myself the whole time.
J says the blog about homeschooling came across a bit edgy. I'm in the minority in the homeschool world on my views. There are so many diehard homeschoolers out there that want a Christian based curriculum that I found it harder to find a non-Christian homeschool program than a Christian one. I've had several offline conversations about my choice of curriculum so I saw this as an opportunity to answer those questions on a wider scale.
I changed the size of my font. Do you think that has something to do with it? Do you think people think I am shouting at them? I just found the font hard to read and am surprised no one asked me to make it bigger. Oh God, do I need bi-focals?
One of the reasons I love living in Chicago is that I don't have to sugar coat everything I say. People 'get' me here and I don't feel like I am this super harsh, northerner, big city girl trying to rephrase everything so as to not offend. Living in Tulsa was a lot like dancing on eggshells for me. I never really felt like I did the dance very well.
Now, I will be honest and tell you that when I am coming up on my period, it is best that I not communicate with people. My communication tends to be harsh and not widely accepted. But these posts were written after the hormones tapered back.
So my question to you is this:
Did you think my posts this week were harsh? Or do you think it is just a Tulsa people thing? Please be honest. We are in the safe hormone zone so I promise you will not get your head ripped off.
