I’m really wanting to smack some people. Rebecca of The Road Home posted something on her blog for the first time in months yesterday and it was a bombshell to say the least. (The tl;dr version is that she and her husband civilly divorced at the beginning of the month, part of it was due to infidelity on her part, and she is now pregnant as a result.) She turned on anonymous comments and some of the anonymous commenters have raked her across the coals, telling her in no uncertain terms of their disappointment with her and how she should stop blogging as a result.
Their words are making me quite livid. Rebecca has said in no uncertain terms that her actions were wrong and is taking responsibility for them… and yet, people still feel that they need to tell her about how she is a horrid example. To those anonymous commenters, I have this to say: it’s easy to make comments like that when you’re anonymous so why don’t you OWN YOUR WORDS AND SIGN YOUR NAME! Rebecca owes you no explanations and you have no obligation to read her blog. Seriously y’all, there’s a lovely saying we learned in preschool: if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.
Trader Joe’s love. For those who have never experienced the awesomeness that is TJ’s, I pity you. Here are some things that the rest of us probably didn’t know about them.
Yay Simcha! The amazing Simcha Fisher had a lovely piece in the National Catholic Register on Tuesday about what Catholic parents can learn from Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
Like I need more crochet projects! Anyone want to order this for me?
Disney Princess rap battle. This has been around for a while but it still cracks me up.
