*111th thing you may not know about me: I hate chit chat, small talk and malicious gossip, unless of course it's something I've made up about myself, than I love to hear it!*
I read a ton of blogs, most of them "mommy blogs". I enjoy them, I like to read about others lives, especially when they are witty and humorous. I also like the tear jerker ones and then I do have a couple of favorite ones that I look forward to reading.
But, lately I've noticed something on many of the bloggers "profiles". They are all married to WONDERFUL men or HOT wives. Always there's some mushy mush type adjective describing the significant other of the blogger.
Maybe I am just cynical and less gullible than most people, or perhaps I'm really just very jaded, however I can't seem to grasp the "fact" that everything is honky dory and these people are married to the most perfect person in the world. And while it looks like that with most of them, from reading their blogs and never a word about "problems" with said significant other... frankly, I think they are lying, mostly by leaving things out. Why blog if you can't be honest with what is going on in your life? I know, you're probably thinking, how do you know they are lying?
I wasn't born yesterday.
I suppose that most people simply want to blog about all the happy things going on in their lives, while I prefer to share everything that comes to mind. Good, bad, indifferent..
My life isn't perfect and I simply don't believe that others are either, even if they are married to Mr Wonderful (and have all sucked up all the Mr. Wonderfuls in the world, thus me still being single) or their HOT wives, something no one would ever call me, even if he really thought that, I would nix it. Life just isn't made of all good things...
Life is life. It's good, it's bad, it's ugly and it's sweet. There are hard times and soft times (and no, that is not a reference to sex, geez get your mind out of the gutter). There's lessons to be learned and applied. There's dirty things to be cleaned up and there's clean things to dirty up...
Yeah, I guess I am pretty jaded. I just can't believe that their lives are so very perfect.
(I've done some housekeeping and removed a few from my blog roll. I've decided if someone hasn't updated in 2 weeks then they are removed. I've always got 10 more waiting in the wings to add, so while I remove blogs from my reading list, it never seems to get smaller! Bah.)
