Boring, Boring, Boring.

Dear Anne,

While I appreciate all of your heartfelt comments, there is something that you should know. This is my blog and I am the supreme ruler of said blog. Any comments that you leave will be deleted. Forever. Meaning there will be no record of the nastiness that you spew forth.

Now, about the comment that you left referring to my blog being the most boring blog ever written. I find that interesting for a number of reasons, but I'll get to those later.

First, there is a little device that I have encrypted in my blog called a site meter. This site meter is not your average site meter. I pay money, every month, for a company to keep track of everyone who visits my blog. They send me bi-weekly e-mails that tell me almost everything about the people who read my blog.

Second, I don't really read those e-mails because I trust the people who read my blog and I am pretty sure that the people who read my blog like me and the things that I write about, mainly because they tell me so.

Then you came along.

You don't like me. I don't care. Really, I don't care.

I will continue to write about my boring life with my boring husband and my boring kids. I will continue to bore the 100+ people who read my blog on a daily basis. Boring, boring, boring!

So. Getting back to why I found your comment to be so interesting. Upon seeing your comment, I went to my site meter stats page. Do you know what I saw? I think you do. For such a boring blog, you sure do hit it a lot during the day and sometimes late at night.

You read my comments, you have read almost all of my archives and click on my pictures to enlarge them. Probably so you can get a better look at my boring house and my boring yard. Boring, boring, boring.

I am not really a mean spirited person and even though you don't play nice, I will.

But...

This is the last time that I will play nice.

The next time your Canadian fingers are itching to post a nasty comment, you should think twice. I have your information and I will post it.

Look to the finish, Saskatchewan!

You go, girl!!! It always amuses me when people talk about how boring or worthless a site is....and yet they continue to read it. :-)

I'm *so* glad you are posting again!! I missed you. :-)

Hi Laney,

For such a funny gal, you sure can be nice and respectful towards ridiculous people! Personally I think you are a hoot and quite fun to visit!

BTW--I left a comment on your last post this AM but I don't see it. I just wanted to mention that you should take the money your hubby offered and buy yourself a new pair of shoes! ;)

Laney said...

Randi, LOL! You know me so well!!

Mindy, Thank-you. My sentiments exactly.

WAY TO GO!!!! I think you were very diplomatic in your response. Ya know, some folks are just so miserable they want to make the rest of us the same way. Not happening. I LOVE...yes LOVE your blog!! Keep up the wonderful posts-I miss you when you are gone.

Have a blessed day!

Namaste`

PS You should have left her comment up so we could all respond to her. We'd tell her how loved you are.


~smiles~

Woo hoo! Way to respond, Laney. People like that obviously have way too much time on their hands.

Hillary said...

BWAHAHAHA! Good for you!

Crissy said...

Ooh, ooh! I know what this is all about!

When Miss Saskatchewan was cruising your archives she must have come across your bikini-bottom photo.
She's been green with envy ever since.
And you just *had* to remind her with a mental picture of you in Dallas Cowboy cheerleader shorts.


;O)

Andie said...

Wow, that's quite a site meter. Er, how MUCH does it know? Why do I feel like I should put makeup on? LOL

And pptthtt to Anne who has that much time to read about your boring life.

(And I think Crissy's wrong. It must have been the "Guess Girl" pic!)

Laney said...

ROFL!! Crissy, that is not me in the Cowboy shorts but I love you forever for thinking that it is!!

Andie, Yes, I can see everything! For pete's sake stop running around with no pants on! :-)

mindy said...

Yah, well Crissy can put you in one of those uniforms if you would like!! I've got the pictures on her blog to prove it!!! :-)

Laney said...

Oh my word, Mindy!! I am literally LOL at your picture. You are one hot classical homeschooling mama!

Bridget said...

I love your blog and check in with it everyday. I read your posts to my husband because it reminds me of me sometimes. Keep blogging the rest of us really enjoy it.

Lyn said...

Way to go!

Why is it that people feel they can just smash whomever they want, WHILE they keep reading the site? What is with that?

And if you can see that I am in my PJs you know my computer room is a disaster!! Keep it to yourself, ok?

Jfur said...

I enjoy reading your posts as well Laney. I find it fun at how close in age your youngest is to my son. I like to read what kind of things he is doing.
I also wanted to thank you for your prayers, they are much appreciated. :-)
It also gives my mind something else to dwell on beside my booty having to sit on my couch all day. Good things. :-)

mamabear said...

KathyJo said...

Have I mentioned lately that I adore you, Laney? :)

If you want to give her a Jackass Award, I have a picture that you can borrow. :D

Laney said...

Kathy Jo,

The feeling is mutual!:-)

Bridget said...

Yes, it is my Grandpa that lives down there, he is actually on Carolina Beach. My Grandma passed away in July and my parents are now in the proces of moving down there to live with him. He is 81 and we worry about him being by himself (although I'm not sure why he is so healthy he will probably outlive all of us) so maybe sometime when I get down there we could meet up. If would be neat to meet the face behind the blog.

My goodness! Are there really people that are mean enough to tell you that your blog is boring. Blogging is something I thought was for you to post your life, desires, wants, and wishes. I am sorry to hear that people can be so mean to other.

Crissy said...

Andie, I think I missed the Guess Girl picture. Now I have to go look for it!

Laney, I knew *that* wasn't you, silly girl!
Your hair is WAY cuter than hers.

sunshineperri said...

Your blog is so wonderfully inspiring!! I am glad that you are here. You keep on blogging!!

My sister told me once that I lead a very boring life. I am never bored, so I don't know what she was talking about either!!

Keep up the good blogging work! :)

"Go Laney, It's your Birthday, Go Laney, It's your birthday"!! (Ok it WAS your birthday but you know what I'm sayin')
I pop in once in awhile to marvel over how "together" you are to be blogging, homeschooling, mothering and wifeing (is that a word?) How ANYONE could criticize that is beyond ME! (Hi Kevin) Love you gal!
