Pissy Kitty - Thick skin required for Reading.

Thursday, November 15, 2012

This is a RANT. These are my personal feeling to which I am entitled. If you know me personally and don’t have thick skin stop here and close this blog. Same goes for anyone who wants to “interpret” my words through their own personal filters. I’m not being nice or motivational Kitty. This is blunt and pissy Kitty. I will understand if no one reads this and you will not hurt my feelings. I am writing this for ME and those who simply want to understand/support me.

I start with the fact that I was in a TERRIFIC mood yesterday morning. I was excited to write my blog and the only downer I had was my hair. I wrote my blog first thing – as praise to my hubby and my joy. I then I got a call from hubby that he was willing to pay to have my hair fixed (I’m broke until after Thanksgiving) as he had Xmas money on the side. Woo Hoo – I made an appointment and was feeling pretty darn good.

Then the CFO came in (my insane boss – not one of the owners). I have time off next week. First time I have taken all year because I’ve just had too much to do. He is trying to push for me to have everything done before I leave for vacation! This is not possible as he has me on special projects for the first 10 days of the month and I’ve just started my monthly work. Enter the stress monster.

I then received several upsetting emails regarding different dogs I work with. Including one from a shelter that has decided the abused pittie I just started with is too damaged and is going to be put down (yes, I’m fighting but I think it’s a losing battle). More stress.
Then I get home and I have nasty grams in my email about yesterday’s blog. How it wasn’t appreciated, etc. Really? Thought this was my blog and my feelings. I was PRAISING someone I love, not attacking anyone. Stress monster growing.

I did have one of the upset parties actually call me and we worked it but the call ran late and I missed my hair appointment. Now I can’t be seen until Monday (my stylist had a cut in one chair and a perm in another by the time I got there 20 minutes late). Stress monster has now taken full control and I’m pissy.

I got home and snarffed pizza. I beat the punching bag. I snarffed more pizza. I had my soy and went to bed. I didn’t get my walk in with Tazzy. I didn’t get my push-up/sit-ups done. And I still have a horrible haircut. I didn’t get to take care of the dog issue nor did I get any work done at home to get caught up.

I admitted long ago and to everyone/anyone that I am BLUNT. I say exactly what I mean. This does occasionally get me in trouble as I always speak the truth from my perspective. If someone reads more into my blogs or words than what is actually written/said – look in the mirror for your problem not me.

Also, anyone that knows me knows that communication online is NOT my preferred method. Things are easily misinterpreted and I don’t always express myself well. My vocabulary far exceeds my spelling and I consider inflection and body language as important as words in a conversation. I prefer face to face but a phone call is much better than email. You have a problem with me – call me. Heck, my number is PUBLISHED on my website; I’m not hard to find. Nasty grams not appreciated and do instantly make me angry (is it right –no, but that is ME deal). *Spark friends do not read into this – refer to above paragraph. I’m referring to when email is easily the last option as we already “have a close personal relationship”.*

Order of importance for people in my life is simple – 1) Me – I’ve learned I am useless to anyone else if I’m living as a stress monster. 2) Hubby – this is who I have CHOSEN to live the rest of my life with. He out ranks everyone. 3) Boy Child – my son only takes a back seat to my hubby. 4) My dad – not family, not friends but my dad. 5) My ladies – if you are not in 1-4 my dogs our rank you! And there have been many a day that the dogs have even taken priority over Hubby – so guess what they are pretty darn important to me. The remainder of my family comes next, then everyone else. There are a few friends who outrank family members, but not as many as seem to think they do.

I could go on for about 5 more pages, easy. However, I now feel better and that was the point of writing this. I thank anyone who has gotten to this point and still wishes to be friends.

Warm Wags and Happy Snuffles.

    We all need to rant and vent sometimes. Honestly, I thought you sounded pretty restrained, considering how aggravated and stressed you must be. I don't know why some people are just looking to be offended, but screw them. It's your blog and you're entitled to write whatever you want, however you want! I'm so sorry about the abused dog being put down. I hope you succeed with your appeal, but if not, at least the dog didn't get put down without someone fighting on its behalf. Thank you for doing that.

    I hope you're feeling better by now and can enjoy your weekend!

    Sending love and support to you, dear Kitty. I'm sorry about the sweet pittie...I absolutely love pit bulls and I get so sad when I hear about things like that. I can only imagine what it is like to personally know the dog. I am getting teary eyed just thinking about it.

    As far as your blog, you just feel free to let it all out. Blogs are good for that, and friends are here to listen and support you!

    Your previous blog was a lot of 'warm fuzzies'. If someone found a problem with that they have some serious issues.

    It's your blog!

    You rant on if you feel like it!

    Don't let the haters get to you! You have come too far!

    Hang in there. I totaly understand. I am proud of you!!!!!
    2043 days ago
    The importance of blogging is writing whatever you want which will make you feel better! Thankfully, if somebody doesn't like it, he/she can stop reading!
    It's useless/mean/stupid to write something bad to a person about his/her blog.

    I always say that I care about the opinion of people that I respect. So, don't let these people affect you, they don't worth it!

    Your blog wasn't even that pissy. I'm way more negative, angry and rude in my blogs. Rant on girlfriend. That's why we are here.
    2043 days ago
    Totally don't understand anything negative about yesterday's blog-it was really positive. And, sorry about today- sounds like an awful one (especially sorry about the pit-that's horrible). Hopefully, tomorrow will be a better day.

    And, love the title pissy kitty-we totally call my cats that!
    2043 days ago
    I hate days like that! Where one sh!tty thing happens after another! No worries here...I'm not easily offended. I honestly can't understand why you would get nasty emails about yesterdays blog. It makes zero sense to me! I thought it was a sweet blog about how great your hubby is. I'm so sorry about the pittie!! I really hope you are able to save it and I would be really upset too if i were you! I think any dog or pet can be mean if you treat it like it's dirt. As for the'll still look good if you wear a hat.

    I'm with the other SP folks. I can't see why anyone would be negative about your last post, and I really don't see this blog as very pissy at all. Then again, I have a history of repressing everything, exploding, and letting the pieces fall where they may. (I exceed pissy and go nuclear at times.)

    You've had a bad few days and you have every right to vent. If anyone has a problem with that, they can kiss your lovely behind! Keep being you, Kitty!

    Wow - sounds like your day was sh*ttier than mine, and mine started with literal sh*t . Good for you standing up for yourself. You and yours definitely have to take priority over the rest of the world, even friends. I sincerely hope tomorrow is a better day.
    2043 days ago
    I'm so happy to see so much love here from your friends supporting you. I agree with the others, these are your blogs, your thoughts, emotions and words; I love how honest you are, don't let a few rude and judgemental people change that or stop you from blogging.

    Your blog yesterday was so touching, I loved the tribute to your hubby. The only bummer was that you hate your hair so much, but there is your hubby today wanting to help you resolve that.

    I'm sorry about the sad news of the pittie, it just crushes my heart to hear about abused animals. I love that you work with these special animals and would love to hear more about what you do.

    I wish I could give you a big hug and tell you face to face just how much I admire and respect you and how grateful I am to have met you and to be getting to know you and call you friend. To those who judge, well...I'll just say same on them.
    Love you Kitty!
    Sending you great big emoticon

    Well, I'm baffled. How could someone find negativity in yesterday's blog about your marvelous hubby? I sure am sorry they want to put that poor dog down before you really even have a chance to work with it. Kitty, you are an awesome person, pissy or not! When you need to vent, then do so! I am honored to know you on SP. I have to admit that Jack outranks Hubby quite often.... Poor Hubby!

    I looked several time for a missing blog- I don't understand what could be understood as negative about that blog. And anyway, who cares. It IS your blog and you have the right to say whatever you want.

    It sounds like yesterday was stressful on all sides. I'm glad your head didn't explode. Not only would it have made a HUGE mess, but I'd really miss that face.

    I hope today was so much better!!!

    2043 days ago
    From the intro, I thought this blog was going to be much more harsh!! I think this was nice and mild, considering it sounds like someone was giving you sh#t for loving/appreciating your hubby, which is ludicrous to the nth degree. Anyhow, it sounds like you have your priorities in order, and it sound like you know how to healthily deal with others BS. I have cut sooo many people out of my life who couldn't understand that my husband and family come first in my life, always, no matter what. Also, as a professional barber, I am sad to hear that your haircut was a bummer, I know that can really make for a bad day, so sorry. You seem to have far too much goodness in your life to let any of this bother you too much. Keep rockin it girl, you are awesome.
    2043 days ago
    SPEAK YOUR TRUTH! Always. Your way. You are awesome! I haven't read that blog yet but I am sure whatever it says it was yours to say. If people judge you for anything thats their prob. Good for you!
    Sorry about the dog being put down. emoticon

    2043 days ago
    Ok I think you blog from yesterday was awesome! I love stories like that! Second, you have every right to be pissy! It is well-deserved pissiness!
    2043 days ago
    Well, I don't think I've read your blog before but I loved both this one and the last one so I'm going to friend you as soon as I'm done writing this comment! I agree that you appear to have the best hubby, but that's only because my boyfriend and I aren't married, when we are, then I will have the best!! Sorry! :-P We should all feel like that about our spouses all the time. Especially when we're engaged in trying to change our lives and our body sizes, we need that kind if support and I'm glad you have it.

    Finally, I frequently get in trouble for being too blunt and I tell people the same thing. This is MY perspective, not yours! If you disagree with me, tell me, we can both think about each others' side and maybe we'll both learn something! I'm not saying/doing/thinking/feeling this AT you, I'm saying/doing/thinking/feeling and trying to share WITH you so that we can become closer.

    P.S. Don't give up on your pittie! Our poor pet animals (dogs, cats, all others) need all the help they can get in an all-too-often uncaring world. You rock!

    Hey, I read your blog from yesterday (just now) and thought it was fantastic that your hubs was so supportive! Why on earth did you get all the neagtive e-mails? I love ranty blogs, they make us feel good and kind of clears the air. Hang in there! Hope things get better with the pittbull, boss and with haircut real soon (not necessarily in that order, lol). emoticon

    sometimes spark seems to be at kindergarten level. your blog was very nice and sweet. I remember clearly thinking- how sweet and lucky you emoticon . and it was obviously a bad day . when I have days like that I just go home , hide in a corner and don't try to do anything cause nothing works. if you think you're blunt you didn't see me emoticon emoticon . I always say what I think no matter who is the other person and who doesn't like it is free to go away .sorry about the dog .

    What??? I just read yesterday's blog to see what horrific, controversial, scandalous things you wrote about to incite such wrath. Huh??? WTH is wrong with adoring your husband and son (you're a blessed girl) and being disappointed with a haircut or being upset with a cranky boss or sad you can't save a pup. Isn't that real life?? Aren't blogs for venting? I'm so sorry that some people were callous and rude to you - that's just wrong!! I'll speak for the "rest of us" telling you that we love you, your blogs, your sweet comments & your constant encouragement!!!

    Hmm.. I've gotten comments like that, but I deleted them.
    Thought your blog yesterday was fine. No comments, but I think this is a case of the 10% rule. 90% of people can be warm, wonderful and supportive and then the 10% nasty come in and you spend all your time brooding over the nasties. This is just human nature.

    I loved your blog yesterday and made me reafirm my feelings about how great my husband is and has been in my quest to lose weight. No one has the right to make you feel like crap for your good feelings yesterday. Like I was always taught, if you don't have anything nice to say..........I'm sorry that the dog probably can't be saved. It's equally sad when animals are disposable like that and instead of being placed where they will get the most help are thrown away like yesterdays news. But beyond that, you do have a lot of people here on SP that care about you no matter what you say. Life is too short for negative relationships!
    2044 days ago
    It truly must have been in the water yesterday. I loved your blog yesterday. I thought it was great that your hubby enforced your me time.

    Sorry about the pit that seems to not be able to be saved. It's so sad that there are so many animals in this world needing homes and I'm so grateful to know someone who does this for a living and takes it to heart. It's so hard. I've rescued dogs in my life and found them new homes. Horses, too! I unknowingly brought a mange infested dog home that I rescued from my ex husband. Moron. it's never easy. Knowing I can't save more makes it emotionally hard and I try not to think about it. God bless you emoticon

    I hope your day progresses to a better day!

    emoticon Never met you and I haven't read Yesterday's Blog {yet}, but I had to throw in My 2 Cents. I can't imagine or understand the need some people have to 'censer' Other People's Blogs. If you don't like/agree with something Just Move On.
    emoticon After all the "Other Person" has the Right to Be Wrong, correct?
    :'(I am so sorry about the Pit you are trying to help. It is so sad that that situation happens so often.
    2044 days ago
    We're not officially Spark Friends, but I'm feeling your pain! Sorry to hear about the nasty emails. What the heck? SP is usually so positive as a community. Hang in there and think how thrilled you will be when your hair situation is fixed.

    By the way, I love the Pissy Kitty phrase. I may need to borrow that.

    2044 days ago
    I hope whoever got their pants in a shuffle about your blog got some help for themselves big time! I hope your days get better from here on in.
    2044 days ago
    Still trying to figure out how something nasty could have come from that blog.
    It takes all different kinds to make the world go around. ( I guess)
    2044 days ago
    Nasty grams????? What the heck did you say that would precipitate that?!? Good grief!?! And you're right . . . no matter what, this was/is your blog and you're entitled to your feelings.

    Moving on . . . hope today is a better day. **SIGH** I hate getting a bad haircut!! That just is such a pain in the neck.

    Awwww, sorry to hear about the pittie. People have such preconceived notions about that breed of dog and fail to remember . . . lots of how a dog's disposition is fashioned is based on how they're treated! That makes me mad too. I could go on and on about that, but suffice it to say, I share your anger/frustration/upset.

    All that said, the best I can offer is a listening ear and a cyberhug. MAJOR HUGS!

    Good for you for saying what you feel. I think thats important in keeping yourself #1. I like the importance you have for everyone, I too put animals pretty high up on my list. I mean, they can't really fend for themselves......... Hope you have a much better day today!! HUGS

    Huh?!! How could anyone say anything negative about "Hubby Blog"? I thought it was sweet myself! I'm sorry about the pittie sweetie......I know how upset you are about that.
