Me and my big mouth

Well, if you check my blog frequently, you may have read a post I left about getting my feelings hurt. I talked about my experience leaving my job as a teacher and how different people reacted to it. And I also talked about how I would have reacted to someone else doing the same thing. I need to clarify, though, that I don't look down on or judge anyone who chooses to be a working mom. I, in fact, think that it's an incredibly hard job, and people who can balance a career and a family amaze me. Somehow I managed to imply that I think that I'm better because I stay home, and that's not the case. So, for that, I am sorry to anyone who read this and thought that I meant anything other than this - the circumstances around my leaving the school made it hard for some of my co-workers, and I hate that. I, to this day, feel bad about it. But that doesn't change the fact that I really wanted to maintain some of the friendships that I lost, and I am disappointed that I wasn't able to. Was I blameless in the situation? Absolutely not. Does it change the fact that it hurt my feelings? Again, absolutely not.

I pulled the post because I would never leave something up that would hurt someone's feelings or offend someone, especially a dear friend. I meant only to be honest about my own feelings, to take my share of the blame, and to get it out and be done with it. 
I'll leave it at that, and for the next 30 days I'll stick to fashion posts.

Now, here the Milo picture in case you haven't already seen it. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
