Has anyone noticed anything new about my blog? Anything missing, or not in place? Aside from the moving of some buttons and the addition of MeMarieLane’s button? Nothing? Not like two missing posts?
I present to you exhibit A. The younger child, (known for reasons soon to become obvious as “Positively Insistent Sarcastic Sister And Not Thoughtful”, or PISSANT), took it upon herself to rectify a situation that she disapproved of. She, apparently read my post about her behavior and decided to delete it. I have the computer set up so that when I open up any of the things that I need there are no passwords or locked doors, or secret handshakes to get in. It’s my computer, (my loving husband would probably like for me to point out that it is also his and he can use it anytime he wants…well, when I’m not on it…), and I don’t see any reason to have to go through a gauntlet of crap to get to where I’m going. So, really no secrets there. She did not like me saying anything negative about her and I guess, in retrospect, I can see how it might be disturbing and if I had to do it over again I might not have left it where she could read it structured my sentences in such an unflattering light, HOWEVER, I am not talking to her friends, or anyone she is likely to ever even meet. PISSANT, on the other hand, blasts me out of the water every time we have a fight verbal altercation to all her pals on her MySpace page who come over to the house. I am face to face to these kids who, no doubt, believe I breathe fire. On her.
The really weird thing is that when I found out she had done it, I wasn’t just mad. I was devastated. I felt so totally betrayed and violated. I’s so weird, I had no idea this meant so very much to me. And she had left some comments on the posts before she erased them that I removed, (edit, edit, edit), that said things to the effect that I should not be “talking shit” about her and it’s stupid for me to be so worried about her giving money to her friends and at least she HAS friends and not just pretend friends on line. Yes, she used those words. Made me furious.
I calmed down a bit and told John who is a soft shoe with the kids, but was alarmed that she had done it and said he was going to talk to her about it. I crossed her path in the living room when she came in and stopped her and told her “Do not ever read, comment, or touch my blog in any way, shape or form again. I don’t go snooping around on your MySpace and have fits about what you write about me.” PISSANT didn’t say anything and I think, for one brief moment we had a meeting of the minds. She did look contrite, so maybe she got it. I think she did.
I talked to Cam, (brother dearest), and he pointed out that friends are people you care about and talk to and get and give advice to, so if my blog buddies aren’t my friends, who is? Good point, Cam.
Now, that is out of my system and she can go back to being My Darling Keelan. However I am going to have a hard time making a good accronym out of MDK.
