A Note of Gratitude

Dear Readers,

I want to let you know how much I appreciate your support. Well, at least your readership. I'm not so vain to think that everyone that's ever found this blog supports what I'm writing.

I had an epically horrible day yesterday. I don't know if I should go into details or not (it's not libel if it's true, right?), but the horribleness was only emphasized by single-parenting it this week while Disgruntled Husband is away, gracing others with his disgruntledness. As I told JDub, the first night of going solo, I was like June Cleaver while Ward was away. I cooked from scratch, I picked up, I was patient and kind and heck, the kids even went to bed without any lip. The second night (last night) June Cleaver left and I was Mommie Dearest. This is why it's good to have a bad day when there's another parent there to make sure the kids don't land in therapy. At least not any sooner than they would otherwise.

If you're a single mom or dad, I bow to you.

This is what you all are to me!

Last night, as I attempted to have the liquor cabinet for dinner ( was just a glass of wine), I read some of the comments from yesterday's post. And then down the line at other posts' comments. I read these all the time. Most of the time, I don't respond because it's not like Facebook that lets you know when some one's commented. But if you comment and have a blogger page, I have been to it. And if you have a blog, and commented with a link, I've read it. And you all make me smile and give me the warm fuzzies.

I need to figure out how to respond to all of you better. But until then, I declare tomorrow is Blog Reader Appreciation Day. Not sure what that entails (please comment if you have some ideas), but it will rock.

Thanks again everyone. And let it be known that I sent up some Celestial Suggestions yesterday of what could be done to the person that made it so awful. (And thanks to Craig for going to lunch with me yesterday and saving a community from wrath.)

The Snarky Mom


  1. ha;) I respond to most of my posts because 1 - I don't get so many and 2 - I have no life (well besides 3 sons and a husband and a part time job...)

    Have no ideas but just like to make random comments:)

  2. Just knowing you have taken time to check out my blog is thanks enough! Love your posts and we all have those days!!!

  3. Ugh! Hang in girl! I know what you mean about single parenting. Hugs to you (and drinks when we meet again!)
