I am taking a break from blogging.

I am sorry.

I deleted my post from yesterday.

I thought I was being helpful by providing a place where my commenters can come together and list their posts from the week so I can return the favor and visit their blogs.

Apparently. Not everyone reading my blog is a mature adult.

Last night, I stayed up way too late watching links being placed for U R A C O P Y C A T and IM NO T C LA SSY and NOT S OC L A SS Y. I spent 20 minutes following the person and deleting link after link. I tried to block that person(s).

This morning I woke up and saw this (see number 25):

1. suburbancorrespondent
2. Tall Drink of Life - Reach the Day
3. celticbuffy
4. Kelly K
5. Just Jamie
6. Latte Mommy
7. Jenn of the Roof
8. duchess @ FourEds
9. Karen MEG
10. Flea
11. Marketing Mama
12. Beth (little princess chronicles)
13. Anglophile Football Fanatic
14. MommyTime
15. Rachael (Mommy Learns to Blog)
16. Maggie's Mind
17. Huckdoll
18. nap warden
19. krissy
20. Good&Crazy --Tales from the recently handicapped
21. Cecily
22. Mr Lady

24. Petite Gamine
25. H 8 N K l a s s
26. Kim- Jogging In Circles
27. dysfunctional mom
28. Beth (A Mom's Life)
You're next!

I am officially taking a break from blogging. That is all.

Oh OHmommy. I am sorry people are so mean. Someone needs some serious help if they feel the need to do this. I have some other choice words but I will call you for those.

Nigdy sie nie obrazaj ,tylko rob swoje.
Nie pokazuj ze sie zdenerwowalas ,bo oto tym ludziom chodzi.

Anonymous said...

I am so sorry! People are so very mean. I hope you will blog again soon. I love your blog. Your's, my husbands, and a couple of others are all that I visit. I cannot stand spam. Come back soon!

Tracey said...

Dude. I just copied my fave post and then came back to see some ickiness... Grrrr... Well, I guess it's the downside of being popular on blogs. You are FUNNY. You are sweet. People like you and that's a good thing.

Hang in there.

Hey - did you want to get together tonight or no? I need to arrange for dear hubby to be home on time (ha). I'd love to meet ya, but understand if you're all blog-sick right now.

MamaWise said...

Twoj Tata ma racie... sluchaj go - rob swoje. Nie przejmuj sie, bo duzo ludzi kochaja ciebie i wiedza ze ty jestes niesamowita matka i kobieta!

Przeslam tobie buziaka w Chicago!

Stephanie said...

What is wrong with people? I don't blame you for taking a break. Stuff like this is so uncalled for. Hope you have a great trip anyway!

Shannon said...

Big cyber hugs for you Oh Mommy. I'm so sorry, that really sucks and I hope you know that the majority of your readers are positive and supportive . . . there are always a few bad apples in the bunch. Take all the time you need - you deserve it. I hope you have a super weekend!

Karen MEG said...

Well, the link, it's no longer there which is a good thing. I get the flavour of it from your response and the previous comments, but please do NOT let this sort of thing take you away too long. Jealousy, envy, malice... unfortunately that exists in the vile part of our world.

It is good to have a blog break; enjoy the time with your family and come back when you feel you can.

I will miss you, though... big, big hugs to you.

Burgh Baby's Mom said...

Taking a break would be allowing the troll to have control over you. I hope you'll reconsider because stupid people should never win over classy people. Just sayin'.


SuburbanCorrespondent said...

Sharon at Rocks in my Dryer has a Mr. Linky thing every Wednesday and she doesn't seem to run into this problem. You may want to try contacting her to see how she prevents it...

Lisa@verybusymomwith4 said...

Guess I got here late so I am a bit confused. People who go out of their way to make you feel bad have some serious issues that have nothing to do with you--remember that 'K?

Anonymous said...

I got trolled yesterday, too. I embraced my hater. I took the power away & have now made his/her comment my anthem.

I hope you feel better soon. WE love you.

Lisa said...

Mean people suck and are surely not classy.

I am sad.

That is all.

Allison Says said...

Oh my god. Trolls are the worst! Your *real* readers love you and will miss you while you take a break. We'll be waiting patiently for your return :)

Enjoy your break, not letting the unclassy people (or person) get to you!

Irene said...

I would hope you would consider Burgh Baby's advice...she is absolutely right.

However, I am not sure I would act any differently if it happened to me. Unfortunately, I have very thin skin, I am sure I would have a hard time handling an idiot.

I hope you take a short break, and return with your head held high. Don't let them get you down!

Take care!

Erin said...

We will certainly miss you. Enjoy your visit, come back refreshed, and know that for every moron out there, you have at least a hundred readers who adore you!

Kathryn said...

My mom always told me that when people are mean to you for no reason it is usually because they are absolutely green with envy. I think this is definitely the case here.
You are gorgeous, funny, smart, have a beautiful and loving family, and a great life. These freaks are just completely jealous. So I guess we should all just feel bad for them. Feel bad that their lives are so miserable that they feel they need to spread their misery to others.
I really hope you don't take any of this to heart. You are loved!
Take your break from blogging, but while you are gone do remember how many of us LOVE you!!!! :)

Nat said...

I echo what everyone else has already said. It's jealousy and nothing more. I know it sounds weird, but you can almost take it as a compliment.

I certainly understand the break, but don't be away too long, ok?

Kelly said...

OMG, what is wrong with people?? Not only is that very immature, it's down right rude. I'm so sorry that happened to you. I understand you needing a break, I just hope it's a short one! Have a great weekend! :)

Kerry said...

I didn't get it at first... and then I did. All I can say is the troll is jealous!!! Not to mention a coward!

Stephanie said...

You are about the 3rd or 4th blog I've read today where people are doing this to them. I am not sure why someone would care to take the time to act so foolish and unclassy.

I hope you have a great trip and try not to let one sorry person ruin blogging for you when we all love to read you. Don't let the troll win.

Dana said...

Well, we all know there are d.u.m.b. people out there, and this person just proved it to us once again. Nothing better to do than ruin someone's day, get a life losers!

Don't let them ruin it, really. They're just jealous! Remind them why. keep up all your great work, I bet this will just make you better.

Don Mills Diva said...

I am just flabbergasted that someone would put such effort into being so mean and idiotic. What a loser!

Come back whenever you feel okay to do so - there are many, many people (including me) who love you to pieces.

moooooog35 said...


I thought trolls lived under bridges and ate goats.

How the Hell did they get a computer?

Nicole said...

You know, anglophilefootballfanatic has the right idea - embrace it.

Once a month or so, host a "Fair Game Friday" where anything is just that - Fair Game. If someone has a bone to pick with you or wants to complain about something, they can. Assign a few rules that say they can't use fowl language or inappropriate content, but the rest is up for grabs. If someone is mad about you ripping an idea from someone else (even though you gave credit) then they can post about it on THEIR OWN blog and link to it on yours. The trolls get the Mr. Linky and the rest of us can use comments as rebuttal - if we've gone so far as to read any of their crap.

You will have control of it but it will allow trolls a chance to show their true colors. It also shows how classy you are to give creeps their day in court.

Okay, it's far out there in left field, but I hate to think that you're letting a donkey get the best of you. You are sooo way better than that.

just jamie said...

Oh crap. What a bummer. I'm so sad that you had these crappy people to clean up after. I don't blame you for being discouraged.

Come back soon, please. Or don't. Just enjoy your peace, and come back when you're ready.

Crappy crapsters.

P said...

Things really are getting creepy in blog world, which is why I haven't posted anything personal or anything going on in my children's lives. I don't want to get into it all, but I'm really wondering if blogging is such a good idea.

LunaNik said...

They hate because they envy.

They hate because their lives are empty.

They hate because they are unhappy.

They hate because you are a beacon of light and they are the dark.

They hate because they are left wanting, and can find nothing to fill the void.

They hate because they are sad, small people who can find joy in nothing else.

They hate because you shine.

In the words of the great Tyra Banks (tee-hee-hee), do not dull your shine for them, OhMommy. Please.

Beth (A Mom's Life) said...

Don't let them get you down OHMommy! You are too classy to be controlled by bored people with nothing better to do.

I always enjoy reading your blog and would be sad if you stopped posting - I would understand, but I would be sad.

THopgood said...

I'm so confused...I obviously missed something....nothing pops up when I click #25 so I'm not sure what it was.

But, Please don't give that person(s) this kind of power. Please don't let that person(s) ruin it for you and the rest of us who love you....cause then the bad guy(s) win. Seriously.

Krystyn said...

That is awful...don't people have better stuff to do than to act like an A$$? I hope that you come back soon! We'll miss you!

zdoodlebub said...

I just found you and I hope you come back. I understand the need to take a break...when you wrote the post about why you need to stop commenting so much, I completely understood, being also the sort who likes to make others happy and share the love. My blog is too wee to illicit this nastiness, but I suspect that my first experience with trolls will make me want to pull to covers over my head. Temporarily. Please let this break be temporary.

maggie said...

That is really, truly awful, and I can't imagine why someone would do something so extreme as that. Enjoy your time with family and forget about all this for a bit. If you decide you want to do something similar later that you don't want vandalized, maybe you can just have people email you or something, and then you post it in a normal post. Not ideal, but an idea because I *loved* that you were doing this.

What they did was mean, and it sucks. The other 99.99% love you.

the MomBabe said...

that stinks. clear your head, get some perspective. then come back with a bang. ;)


Ali said...

there are way too many un-classy people out there, hon. HUGS!

Mishelle Lane said...

I am so sorry this happened to you. I hope it doesn't keep you from us too long, because like BBM said it really does give the power to the hater.

Much love to you always!

Tvoja prijatelka,

paul said...

Oh my word.

Sorry that some people don't have better things to do than be abusive.

For what it's worth, I thought it was pretty darn cool that you were trying to think of a way to be able to comment on people's blogs, yet maintain limits. I believe you've commented on my blogs a time or two, and it made my day, particularly since you have so many demands on your time. Meant a lot that you'd come and read.

Anyhow, I thought I'd delurk and say that.

Rhea said...

I must have missed all the action, sorry, I have no idea what happened, but I get the gist of it.

Don't stop because of them. That gives them the power over you. Keep it up if you still enjoy it..but if you don't anymore, take a break.

Kash said...

How many people hate Paris Hilton? Who cares? I still love her! The price of being loved publicly are mean people. Ignore them. They surround us everyday, all the time, in every part of life. They need to work on their own problems so ignore what they do and say, b/c it's not you our your problem, it is 100% theirs. You cannot have everybody love you. Take a break, relax at home, and revisit this later.

Kash said...

I also was looking forward to reading your awesome readers favorite blog postings! Dang, it would have been such an easy way to guarantee good reading today!

zoeyjane said...

hugs, hun. i know it seems like a break is needed and to regroup...i think you should enjoy your vacation a bit and then come back in full force! if this happens again, think of what you'd tell jay if this was happening on the playground to him. it's about the same thing, imo.

Jill said...


I really sat there last night wondering if I should send in my link... knowing full well that I'm a newish reader and semi-regular commenter... should I really bog down your inbox?

And then I see this stuff?

So sorry!

Kash said...

Dude and one more thing, these comments were TOTALLY uncalled for and ignorant. Why in the world would he put "i'm a copy cat" when you FULLY CREDITED AND DISCLOSED where and whom you got this idea from! That is SUPER CLASSY and in the academic and professional world, it's called respectful and honest.

If that is how he or she thinks, I hope he/she stops driving, and learns to reinvent the wheel.

Dawn@Embracing the Ordinary Life said...

I agree with all the other posters...don't give into some people being mean because they think they can because they are hiding behind the internet...There are some of us who look forward to your postings...and you do have the power to DELETE!!

Dawn said...

I am praying that you will reconsider your break. You are loved by many here in Blogville, and you need to let your classiness shine on. I have some not nice things I would like to say about what happened to you, but I will limit myself to saying that they are idiots with no apparent class. Do not let them bother you. Being classy isn't always easy. Honestly, it is probably easier to sink down to an unclassy level, but you have to hold yourself up to your high standards. If, even for a minute (like now), you want to hide, read all of your wonderful comments (like this one) and keep on keepin' on! :-)

lattemommy said...

I know that this is particularly hard for you because it's all so personal. I feel for you. But, I don't think you should let them win. You used to love your blog. Take a break, have a wonderful trip to Chicago, then come back and love your blog again.

GoMommy said...

Wow- I take one day off from checking my fave blogs and this happens! I'm so sorry. I don't know why people feel the need to be mean. If you don't have anything nice to say...
I hope you have a great vacation, but don't let one negative, and obviously mentally-troubled, individual keep you from doing what you do. There are many more of us who enjoy your blog and look forward to reading it.

Grey Street said...

Dude, that's lame.

They're just jealous that you're so classy! ;)

Don't worry about it - they suck.

Eve Grey said...

I don't even get what happened. They hacked soemthing & out red x's beside everyone's name?
They just want attention because their moms didn't give them enough.
Ignoring is probably the best. You could also get their IP from your site meter & publish it & make a formal complaint?...
Enjoy your break, it's a great time to take it with the lovely weather!

Hailey said...

I'm a little confussed and really bummed that you are taking a break. Hold that head high and walk as if you own the world. Things will get better! I will miss reading your blog! Come back soon!

Leah said...

I'm a new viewer, pointed in this direction by my auntie, who was hoping I'd have some clarification about what is going on over here. Unfortunately, I don't have a clue, except it sounds like some people haven't been very nice. I TOTALLY get needing a break from crud like that, but at the same time, you're also giving power to the jerks by letting them run you off... I hope the issues get resolved quickly and you find yourself back to blogging. It appears you have many loyal followers (my auntie included!) and they'll all be anxiously awaiting your return. HUGS

Stinky John Jones said...

The first thing that came to mind is, Mean People Suck. Then I thought about's probably some pimply faced teenager who's parent's believed in "reasoning" when dealing with their problems. At this point...I think the kid needs a good whoopin'!

tricki_nicki said...

Listen girl, if you want to take a break, you do it. Go buy yourself a nice pair of heels and rant to your favorite friend about idiots.

But after that, do not waste one minute of your time thinking about one person who doesn't care about you. There are more than a HUNDRED of us who think you're darling - and if we were there we'd all take you out to The Cheesecake Factory and make fun of ugly nerds with too much time on their hands.

So by all means take a break, but think about us, ok? We think you're great.

Go read this:

Melissa said...

I'm not sure what the link was about but I can imagine it wasn't something good!

I'm sorry the haters are on your doorstep. Please be kind to yourself and come back...mean people suck! 'Nuff Said!

LceeL said...

Not fair. To you or to us. To you, because you are so much what others want to be. And, obviously, what some people are not capable of. To us, because we are diminished by your absence.

Huckdoll said...

Don't hate her 'cause you ain't her.

That's all this is about...sad.

chris said...

How ridiculous of that person. Someone is definitely "green with envy." We'll miss you... Hope you are able to come back soon!

Heather said...

This stinks. Some people really suck. I hope that after your trip you can come back and feel refreshed. Stupid people suck....enough said.

Mommy Cracked said...

I, too, hope you will reconsider. One idiot out of all your readers doesn't deserve that much credit. Please reconsider.

The Mom said...

I'm sorry for the haters, that is so immature.

Please re-think your break, don't let some stupid people bring you down!

I always have believed that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!

Clare said...

Oh Mommy! I hope that you are OK, I know that blogging is so personal and if someone does something hurtful you want to protect yourself and your family. I know that the hater is secretly jealous of your fabulous blog and classy readers wink, wink;) I hope your trip goes well, and you are able to come back to blogging when you feel up to it! Sending you and your family my hugs! XOXO, Clare

Kimber said...

Oh Mommy, I am so sorry that this happened to you. I don't know why people feel obliged to be mean to others. It is such a waste of energy. It is also a waste of our good Mommy energy to let it get to us. I have had it happen a few times too. I think when you have a lot of readers and your life looks damn good, people get jealous. I used to get so upset and now I think, (and I have posted) "this is who I am--if you like me read, if not click away" but I will not give ANY attention or energy to negative comments anymore. It is not why I blog and I have no time to waste on strangers who are unhappy.

I only am giving myself permission to check a few blogs right now because I need more time with my family but yours is one that I check and LOVE. Please don't stay gone too long:)


Miss said...

I hate people. What scum.

But I do love you.

Tiffany said...

SOOOO sorry you are experiencing this craziness! I was so excited about your doing the POW - It is seriously one of my favorite features of McMommy's blog and being that you and she are two of my absolute favorite reads, I was doubly excited.

People are just incredibly immature and insecure. Hang in there and know that many of us are here to support you when you are ready to return - which I HOPE is soon!

Jim Gerl said...

Please don't let the dark side get you down. Just ignore them. They hate that the most.

You have a great blog. Don't let them stop you from doing your thing. As a fellow blogger I appreciate your good work.

Lacey said...

OHmommy, I am sorry some people are so mean! I will definitely miss reading your posts bc you're one of my favorite blogs. Don't worry about those immature people and enjoy your trip.

LaskiGal said...

Someone apparently did not get enough hugs when they were a child. Have pity on them. They must be so unhappy.

Take your break and then, come back.

We'll be waiting.

carrie said...

Mean People Suck.

Hugs from me to you.

Candace & Anna said...

I am sorry they were so rude! I had just found your blog last week. I was enjoying it and I will hate that I missed the chance to get to know you. Keep your chin up and don't let there stupidity and immaturity get you down to much.

Lindsey and Adam said...

Don't let those people make you stop blogging.
This is your journal for your kids when they're older.
Keep your head up and move on. They'll get over themselves eventually. I know it hurts, though. I have haters, too and it's really sad that they even waste their time checkin' you out.

Kim said...

I am sad that such ugliness is going to force you to take a break when it is there issues with jealously..

I hope you enjoy the break .. I will miss you while you are gone..


Dad Speed said...

Wow! Spammers suck. I do hope you have a good trip.

renatamic said...


u rock!! please come back.

Anonymous said...

I am so sorry that this kind of thing is happening to you. I thought this was about community and being able to meet people and develop real bonds, but instead people turn it into silly games. I hope that you don't let this ruin your trip because the people/person behind this aren't worth it! Enjoy the time with your family, and consider this a fly in your wine - scoop her out, she didn't drink much ;)

Keri said...

Oh honey i am so sorry that mean people have to try and tear down the good hearted ones.
I have only about 10 blogs that i follow daily, and yours is one of them.
I will deeply miss your wit, class, and humor... please take the time you need... but please please please come back to us.
We all need a touch of class in our lives.
**huge hugs**

Jennifer said...

Look at all that bloggy love for OhMommy! Isn't it great to know that there are way more nice bloggers than annoying bloggers.
Come back soon.

Tara R. said...

I missed the deleted post so I'm a little lost here, but it sounds like some serious junk! I hope you're not gone long, I really enjoy coming by. Love ya, stay Classy OHio!

Flea said...

You do what you have to do, OHmommy. We'll miss you something fierce. I'm sorry that some sucky mean people are ruining the bloggy experience for you. I'd say this would be reason at least for comment moderation.

Y'know, until I saw tara's comment there, I never realized why you capitalize the OH in OHmommy. I just thought it rather odd. I'm very slow, you know.

Erin said...

Why do mean people have to ruin a good thing?

I truly enjoy and look forward to your posts.

Enjoy your break and hopefully you will come back soon! Take care!

UGH WHY do people have to be so childish?! I'm sorry :(. Buncha jerks! Come back soon!

A troll! Maybe it's a compliment... my blog is so small potatoes I don't even attract the haters!

We'll miss you, so come back soon ;(

Regroup and please not let one idiot ruin it for you...TROLL BE GONE!

Happy Days said...

Jealousy is poison! I am so sorry that people are mean! Isn't it crazy that some people have all the time in the world, even to be mean. They obviously must not have a supper classy husband, three supper adoreable classy kids, and be a supper cute, classy woman that you are. I love reading your blog and hope that you don't take too much of a break!!!

Sue said...

Mean people suck.

I will miss you.

Sorry, I missed yesterday's post, so I know I am missing something, but whatever it was, no one should be mean to such a classy you.

Hope your trip in Chicago is not marred by these mean unclassy people.

Anonymous said...

So not classy. And so not fair given what you were trying to do, what you have been agonizing over.

I am so sorry that something that was once so wonderful and fun has turned into this for you.


Monkeys' Mom said...

Please don't stay away too long!! We will all miss you very very much!


momof3crazykids said...

I'm so sorry there are people that actually are that mean on the internet. I clicked on #25 but apparently their blog is now gone.
Have a great break and hope to hear from you soon!

Gayle said...

I have enjoyed your writing, and daily musings so much, I'll be sad to see you go. But I hope that it gets you recentered. If you choose to come back, we'll be SO glad to have you! You'll be missed. "See" you 'round...

DysFUNctional Mom said...

You know, there are people in this world who are just utterly miserable and make it their mission to make everyone else miserable as well. It looks like you ran in to one of those people.
I really hope you come back soon, and enjoy your break. You will be very much missed!

Shellie said...

I"m just catching up here on all your last few weeks while I was off busily not blogging, and I definitely support you, take a break whenever you need it because it shouldn't be stressful to blog. But, don't stay away too long or we'll miss you!

Kellan said...

I'm sorry this happened to you and I'm sorry I'm only just finding out about it. When you and I get to SF I will give you a hug, but for now ... I would say to you - don't let them win. Take a break, if you need to (we all need a break sometimes), but then ... brush it off and come back and WRITE!!!!! The writing is what you need to focus on - it is what you do best and it is what we love!! Just focus on yourself being happy and if you want to continue to take care of this FABULOUS blog - then WRITE and all of us the love you and your writing will be here buffering you from the crappy stuff!!!!

Take care and I'm always here if you need me! Kellan

krissy said...

I will miss you....don't let the haters bring you down.

I can kick them in the juggler for you if you want. Let the lions out of the cage and tell us who we need to have a smack down with if you wish.....I'm game!!!

Stupid does and stupid pleases. That's why we have so many oxymorons roaming the streets.

Have a good blog vacation..

Karen said...

I'm so sorry. I've told my kids repeatedly that bullies push others around to make themselves look bigger in their own eyes. Someone is feeling inferior to your wonderful blog - don't let them win.

Take a break if you want to spend time with the kids and husband. But please don't take a break because someone intimidated you. Stand strong and show them that you're not going to deal with it.

We love you. Hang in there. *hugs*

Courtney said...

I am really going to miss you, your sweet family and your super sweet mothering style that I really admire. Just know that you are loved and some people are just ugly and jealous types who unfortunately have tried to ruin a really good thing. I will be hoping every day to see you back again. I for one am lovn' classy!!

LaskiGal said...

I just heard something hilarious and thought of you today . . . a little girl was being chased by her mom. Her giggles were infectious! She was screeching, "oh mommy . . . oh mommy . . . oh mommy" over and over again. It was so cute.

Then, "oh mommy" fell into a pile on the grass and said, "Your Oh Mommy needs and Oh Break." If I didn't know you were in Chicago, I'd have thought it was you.

Hope your break is going well and you are doing a lot of HAPPY stuff :)

LaskiGal said...

I was almost 100 . . . oh look, now I am :)

EatPlayLove said...

Don't make it that easy for a few random unhappy people, hiding behind the veil of their computers to take away your wonderful and thoughtful writing. That many of us are grateful for you to share.

Anonymous said...

I AM SAD. I have coffee with you every morning. I shall miss you.
Please don't stay away long.
You and Kellan are two of my favorite stopping by places before I go to work. What will I do without you? Cindy

imbeingheldhostage said...

I honestly am stunned that for some reason you keep having these experiences. One, because your blog is such a delightful read, and two-- because you've never posted anything to deserve such hateful treatment.
I hope you have a nice break, and soon forget the crappy people who seem to have found their way here.

Tena said...

I am so so sorry!
All I can offer you is some {{{gentle cyber hugs }}}}}. Some people just have to be nasty!

krissy said...

Just one more thing....I'm sure you know that with my blunt blog I get hatemail as well (through emails). But you know what....I look at it as at least they read my blog and they always come back for more hatemail so obviously I am somewhat amusing to them. So, although I think that you do need a break......don't let the haters ruin a good thing. So many of us count on you for many reasons and the rude comments are symbolic to jealousy. So, look at it through other eyes....they are obviously jealous of a super classy, beautiful women with a knack to write great posts. Think of all the authors out there that get the critics giving them the nay but the readers make them popular as heck.

Just another thought. I will miss you and I thought the idea was a great idea.

Love ya Ohmommy.....I will seriously miss you.

Can't they be reported ?

Trolls should be jailed.

Don't leave cause of one mean twit.

Is it a full moon ?

What goes around comes around. Wait till there's does & hope you have a front row seat.

Wendi said...

Sorry to hear that not everyone in Blogville plays nice.
It just takes one to mess it up for others.
Hang in there.
Take a break if you need it.
We will be here when you return.
Enjoy your vacation with your family.
Remember...*they* are the reason you do this!

I'm sorry you are dealing with this. How ridiculous.

I'm emebarassed for the way people are acting. ADULTS no less. ~sigh~

Kelley said...

I had no idea what was going on! By the time I got to the discussion you girls had gone to bed.

Seriously babe, please don't take it to heart OK? People suck. They suck cause they want to be popular and don't know how to without cutting others down.

You know I think you are awesome. Just ignore them. Or you can borrow my smiting finger if you like...

Brian had a soft top Jeep years ago. Someone cut a whole in it, took some CD's, his golf shoes and the KNOB off his radio. Not the radio, but the KNOB to turn the stations. He got a bumper sticker that said MEAN PEOPLE SUCK with one of those simple yellow frown faces and put it over the cut in the soft top. I am putting one of those bumper stickers over your blog for now, sweetie.

Do what you need to do for yourself, your family. But don't stop blogging because of some punk who has nothing better to do than harass you! That's their problem, not yours.

Clearly, you have quite a following who care about you. You've been doing something right! Take Care.

Mandy said...

Danielle said...

OH mommy! So sorry! That was really shitty!

I will keep you on feed reader and will be here when you are ready to come back. You are a great writer and I love to read your blog.

I'm sorry this person took the wind from your sails!

See you when you come back!

Whenever I get a troll I delete their comment and forget about them.

Like Burgh Baby's Mom, I hope you'll reconsider. I love your blog! You write so well and it's a refreshing change of pace from the more common snarky blogs (I include my own in that description).

You're a classy lady, OHMommy.


Jeremy Neal said...

Why are there so many jerks out there with nothing better to do? Hope the break isn't for too long!

Sweets, you know how I feel about you.

Take your time and know the love is here.

I haven't read 119 comments before this, but I hate that a troll is causing this much trouble for you. I hate to see that a troll has been given any power.

If YOU really need a break take one, but please don't do it on the account of some troll who has nothing better to do than push your buttons.

Kristen said...


Sorry to hear that not all people out there are adults, like you said. This really is so high school it is rediculous!

Mean is just not right! So sorry.

Enjoy your family and your vacation in Chicago. :)

mamatulip said...

Hey you -

You know I understand where you're coming from.

Email me if you want to talk.


Jenn said...

I realize that by putting ourselves on the internet, we make ourselves vulnerable to people's opinions and their nasty attitudes, but I think if someone has a problem with you, me, whoever, they should come out and say so, instead of being immature and cowardly like this! Jerks like this aren't worth anyone's time, certainly not someone as CLASSY as you!

Hope to see you back soon!

TONYA said...

Okay, wow, I don't check your blog in a couple of days and OH the drama. I'm so sorry you had to deal with this.

Some people seriously just have way too much time on their hands and need to get a life of their own. They showed their complete and utter lack of class.

Grandy said...

It's all jealousy lovely lady. You are bound to get 1 or 2 uglies mixed in with your adoring fans. ;)
