Taking a break

I'm busy. I'm stressed. I'm tired. And sadly, blogging is, at the moment, no longer therapeutic. The Snarker has said some extremely unkind, harsh, and untrue things about me and about my husband, and has closed comments on that particular post. Frankly, the whole thing makes me not want to blog, especially now at this particularly stressful time. So, I'm taking a break. I'll see you in about 2 weeks. Gotta go sell my house now.

May I recommend a method that I've been employing for several months now . . . just don't read it. I've always (well after the first few weeks) thought he was small and mean and unfunny. (And not being funny is the biggest sin, in my honest opinion. I mean how dare you use the glorious name of snark in vain.)

After not reading it for several months now, it honestly doesn't feel like it's even there anymore. It's not even an annoying dog yipping in the background, it is completely gone from my perception. And I don't miss it one bit.

Heather: His post went too far, and I wish ldsblogs.org would stop linking to this site -- it's too mean-spirited. That would dry up the audience pretty fast. Good luck with the move! We'll be moving this summer too, though sans small child, and I'm not looking forward to it.

Heather, good luck with packing, the move, and getting some rest. We'll miss you until you're back:)

I don't know what you're talking about, either.

God bless, moving is hard.

Moving sucks. Anyone who says differently is selling something.

I have been there once or twice, and frankly I don't know why people go. He is cruel, thinks he is so much better than anyone else. This is poking fun of real people, with real feelings and emotions, and yes faults. I don't need to be reminded of them, neither do you. Don't go, go to those that show respect, and good humor. The kind that uplifts, not breaks down. I have come to learn to avoid those places that just make me "hurt" inside. The world is too big to waste time there.

Some people never leave Jr. High. It is so sad that there are people out there who love to be mean just for meanness sake.

I for one LOVE to move (no, I'm not selling anything, unless you're in the market for a hyper-emotional 9 yr old boy). The ability to purge and "clean house" and start over gives me a high!! People hate me.

You might want to consider it a compliment, Heather. Only important people get ridiculed. It would be so much worse to be ignored.

Congratulations to your new home.

Best wishes, Hellmut

Don't sweat it, Heather. Mormons can be terrible people sometimes. I'm convinced that if you want to get by in the bloggernacle, you've got to either (a) be very resilient, have thick skin, and be reasonably forgiving, or (b) you've just got to learn to disregard Christ's admonition, "by their fruits ye shall know them."

This sounds really harsh, I know. If you think it's unwarranted, I'll put together a bunch of links to illustrate my point.

Hi Heather,

I haven't known quite what to write here. I think I know how you feel? I don't blog or even comment often because the idea that my thoughts and words will be scrutinized is not one that appeals to me. Some time ago I woke up to find myself snarked. The snark was not true and it wasn't funny. I felt much as you describe feeling in this post. Today I wake to find myself snarked, snark deleted, banned and my comments deleted! lol. Now that is genuinely funny. I have commented on the snarker primarily when I have seen others unjustly maligned. I think the 'nacle is at its best when we are supportive of one another. MMW is good at that.

Mostly I just wanted to drop in and say Hi. You and Nate are well respected in the Landrith home (as well as many other homes worldwide due to your blogging). We were interested to hear about your move and wish you the best of luck.
