Exfriend update

Ok I am sure you remember this post from last week. Well I did end up sending her a short email. Don’t worry, I didn’t say anything hateful to her at all.  I didn’t draw the email out, I was just to the point. So here it is:

So over the past few weeks I have been trying to wrack my brain and figure out why you told D that I told you he was talking about you on facebook. I never told you that. And if you are assuming I had been talking to him about you because I “liked” that status on his facebook, you would be wrong. I don’t know who he was talking about, I didn’t ask.  Also, if you assume I told him anything about your new vehicle, I didn’t.  I am too busy to go back and forth telling stuff.  I have my own life to worry about.

If you thought I was saying something to him, you should have asked me. I would have told you the truth.  But instead, for whatever reason, you abruptly deleted/blocked me from your facebook. 
This will be the last time I contact you,I just wanted to get a few things out there. I don’t have a problem with someone being justifiably angry with me.  I know I’m not perfect.  But in this instance, I fail to see what I did wrong. I think that you saw that status and thought it was about you. It probably made you angry and you wanted to confront him but didn’t know how so you just threw me under the bus. Then you blocked me from facebook so I couldn’t confront you.  
As I said before, I won’t contact you anymore. I can’t control the way you act but I can control how I react to it. With that being said, I wish nothing but good things for you.
See, I told you I wasn’t mean lol.  I just knew that I wouldn’t be able to analyzing the whole thing if I didn’t write something to her.  I have always tried to keep the peace with her because we live in a small county. She moved about 45 minutes away, but her daughter takes dance with my daughter.  So I do see her about once a week. I really don’t care to be friends with her again because I really don’t think she knows what friendship means.  Or maybe she’s a good friend to other people, just not me. I don’t know.  I am just tired of the constant drama from her. I have decided that I am just going to be super nice to her and smile when she gives me the stare down. There’s no since in behaving like she does.  I don’t even know if she will get the email. I don’t even know if the one I have for her is the one she checks often. But it did feel better to call her out a little and let her know that I know what was said about me.
If she does read it, I doubt she will apologize.  She’s not mature enough to admit when she’s wrong.  So I guess that leaves it up to me to be the grown up..ugh.  LOL.

Blogger drama.


I just received a comment from someone talking about another blogger not being who she says she is.  It infuriated me. Not because I know the blogger personally(I’ve only commented on her site a couple of times) but because the person who left the comment assumed I was friends with the person.  For one, that’s no one’s business and two, I don’t appreciate someone bringing unnecessary drama to my site. Believe me, I have enough stupid people in real life who cause drama and I don’t care to  stress over internet drama.

I have moderated comments and though it was done mainly for spam purposes, I am glad I have it for people who want to try to make derogatory comments about another blogger.  I think it’s kind of pathetic to have multiple domains about someone talking about how they have different aliases.  I have someone in real life who has stirred up so much trouble with me, but yet you don’t see me out here calling her out by name and buying a domain so I can talk about her.  It’s not worth my energy. So whoever has made the website, please move on and get a new hobby.

Open Letter to an Exfriend


Dear Exfriend,

I finally realized something. You don’t care about me at all. You never have. Your actions have proved that time and time again. I’ve given you so many chances because I know that no one is perfect and everyone makes mistakes.  However, it’s not a “mistake” if you keep doing it over and over.  It does make me an idiot though.  I’m an idiot because I thought that you would change. Every time I started talking to you again, things would be good until something happened that made you jealous.  Then you went about trying to destroy me.

I know the latest subject of your jealousy was when my daughter won Student of the Year in dance back in May.  Your daughter won an award also, most focused, I believed.  I guess that wasn’t enough though. You came up and spoke to me and eve hugged me after the recital.  Was that so you could stab the knife in my back?  You didn’t even mention anything about my daughter winning the award. I posted a pic of it on facebook because, yes I am proud of my daughter. I did not expect her to get the award. I think you also posted a photo of your daughter’s award. I believe I “liked” that photo.  You couldn’t even be bothered to do that for my daughter.  And this is not just based off of some wild assumption. We have only talked once since May and that was a conversation that I initiated.  I could tell then that you didn’t really want to talk to me.

The next week was when you decided to save face by making up something that you know isn’t true.  I did NOT tell you that your ex was talking about you on his facebook.  You know I didn’t. You just did not want to admit that you had been stalking his fb through your daughter’s page.  I really have no clue if that status I “liked” was about you or not.  I don’t care.  If you made an assumption that we were talking about you, you should have asked. I would have told you the truth. Nothing had been said about you, not to me (or by me for that matter).

I really shouldn’t be surprised though. This is not the first time you have done this to me. You have always seemed to be jealous of me. And no, I am not conceited. I don’t think everyone is jealous of me. But the evidence suggests that you are. You were jealous of my marriage,so you tried to screw that up.  When that didn’t work, you told school officials that my son was bullying your son (a total lie).  And now this.

You blocked me on all social media because you didn’t want me to be able to contact you and call you out.  But don’t worry, I have no desire to ever be friends with you. I would put “again” at the end of that sentence,but really, you’ve never been a friend. So you can keep giving me dirty looks whenever I drop my daughter off for dance and I will continue to ignore you.

Stop trying to figure people out….

1340940123376 1731714

I have just got to stop trying to figure people out.  But seeing as how I’m a very analytical person, I can’t.  I can’t figure out why someone who used to be a friend would choose to hurt me by telling an outright lie.  I would have never done anything like that to her. But then whenever I think about our friendship over the years, I realize, she’s always been this way. She’s always looked out for herself no matter how much it hurt other people.  I remember when I was 15 (almost 16) she insisted I date a guy friend of hers. After much persistence on her part, I agreed. He was not the best looking guy, but I thought I’d give him a chance, after all, he could be a nice guy.  We went on a date where he gave me a cheap necklace as a birthday present.  He kept trying to get me to do things I had no intention of doing. Maybe he thought that gold tone necklace was reason enough for me to give in to him. I didn’t.  We talked on the phone the next week until one day, he abruptly broke it off. He called and basically told me that people had told him I was weird (which, I don’t deny LOL, I am weird)  I wasn’t that upset, we had only been dating for about a week.

I talked to my friend, A., the next day at school. She told me that the guy wanted his necklace back. I told her that was fine and I gave it to her to give back to him. The next day, she comes to the school wearing the exact necklace he had given me. I asked her straight out if they were together. She looked me right in the eye and told me no, they were just friends.  The next day, she hands me a letter, says “Please don’t be mad.” and walks off.  I read the letter and I could feel the hurt and anger rising up in me.  The letter admitted that she and the guy had started dating. I’m not exactly sure how far their relationship went, but knowing her, probably pretty far.  I confronted her and being a 16 year old girl who had just been hurt by her best friend, I told her to meet me at the local skating rink because I was going to beat her tail.  It wasn’t about the boy at all.  I couldn’t care less about that.  It was because she had lied to me.  And apparently had lied about me to him.  I never had any proof, but it wouldn’t surprise me if she was the one who told him I was “weird”. The boy didn’t even go to school with us and I didn’t know any of his classmates at all.  After I threatened to fight her, the boy called me and threatened me. It was sort of funny how he thought the fight was about him. Silly boy. No.  I may have been 16 but I was not about to fight over a boy.  The person who was supposed to be my best friend betrayed me.

I am not sure how long their relationship lasted, probably a few weeks.  We had Spanish class together and I remember sitting there ignoring her. Our classmates knew we had been friends and kept trying to get us to talk.  I am not sure if she ever really apologized, but we eventually started talking again. I know it may not seem like a big deal. And it might not have been if this had been the only time she had betrayed me or lied about me.  But it wasn’t she went on to treat me like gum on her shoe for the next several years.

I always ask myself why I stayed friends with her. Why did I search her out whenever we hadn’t spoken in years.  The only thing I can say is that I had hoped she had changed. Maybe she had grown up.  But as I’ve seen this past week or so, she hasn’t. She’s still the same jealous and selfish person she’s always been.  Do I care if she reads this? No. In fact, I want her to. I want her to explain to me why she feels like it’s ok to lie about me to save herself.  Then again, sometimes I think she lies so much until she believes it’s true. So maybe she has convinced herself I did tell her that her ex was talking about her on facebook.  Who knows.  I know for a fact I didn’t and the people who really know me know who is telling the truth.  Ah well, I really need to stop analyzing people who will never care how they make other people feel.

Free Credit for Lyft App

Have you ever really needed to get somewhere but either you didn’t have a car or your car was in the shop?  I’m sure you wished you had some way to get a trusted driver to take you where you needed (or wanted to go). Well now you can with the new ride sharing lyft app .  Basically, you down load the request a ride at the push of a button, and track your ride until it arrives to pick you up. Pretty cool, huh?  Also, fees are generally cheaper than taxi fare. You pay by phone so you don’t have to worry about having cash on you.  You can rate the drivers and if they get rated 3 stars or below, you won’t have them as a driver again. But hey, your driver could be a pretty cool person and you may end up with a new friend. Right now, you can get a code at ridehookups.com for a free credit for lyft. So, if you live in the area where the service is offered, go ahead and give it a try!
