~Monday...yes it is MONDAY~ **Adult Content**

Monday's oh boy what can you say?
So let's call this BITCH MONDAY! bwhaha!

I still cannot believe what a total Bitch you are,
telling ME because I am a SAHM I don't really work.
Well, I have 3 kids who get 3 hot home cooked meals a day and
I run a full time sewing biz from home.
Plus I do charity work and take care of a hubby 2.
While you have NO KIDS work 1 job,
have an unemployed hubby and just BITCH!
~Under Picture Journaling~
So you think you have the right to tell me I don't REALLY Work. Fuck U!!

Let me first say, I am having a BALL at the Punk Rock Scrappers
It is not only freeing but I feel like a naughty child.
A while ago in a forum 2 women attacked me personally
they kept going for days and days about how I must
have all the time in the world to scrap, because, simply put...
I do not have a real job!
Well, I left that site hurt and and very sad.
I discovered there are some pretty mean
vicious scrap-bookers.
Since then I have discovered the good outweighs the bad 10 X's over.
This challenge really helped me get it all out

I am looking at it with a light heart now!!
I have to say I feel TONS better!

Hope you are not too offended but we have all met these "kind" of women!
~Have a beautiful day~

Hey Pinky, so neat to see that you feel you can use scrapbooking to get out negative feelings. I am so afraid of putting anything down that is not all rosy for fear of what others say. I love the fact that you are able to be so honest with your pages. I know this won't help, but sometimes I wonder if the people that like to cut down the women who have chosen the opposite path are just jealous. I am a working mom, and have had many people tell me that I am hurting my kids by not staying at home with them. I figure that you have to do what is best for you and your situation. I would love to spend more time at home, but it just won't work for my family. I am a teacher however, so at least I get summer vacation with my kids.

I wonder why women feel the need to cut down anyone's choices, I mean some of us have to work and some of us work at home. I have always felt, no matter the choice we should support one another. It is sad really.

I love it! Not only is it beautiful work, as all your designs are, but to express yourself, be it positive or negative feelings on a layout- that's great. Good for you!I think Colleen hits it when she makes that point and also when she said that jealousy is behind a lot of it. Amen. If people just minded their own business & worried about themselves, it would be a much happier place ya know! Don't worry girl, I appear to be an a-hole magnet too, you just have to NOT let 'em get to you!!!!! xOxO

Who ever THINKS a person who does not have a job outside the house must #1 have NO kids or husband or #2 has a housekeeper, cook and own a taxi service!! I love how you can scrap about your feeling and I HOPE you know the POSITIVE inspiration you give to others by doing this.

Katamommy said...

Awesome! I am sorry you had that experience on that forum. That sucks and was totally uncalled for. But at any rate, we know you're fabulous and I love this layout!

Great LO and I have NO kids, but I help my sister out with her 2 boys and being a Mom IS a FULL time job!!!

V Colbourne said...

I freakin' love your stuff Pinky!! I don't think I've ever have the guts to write something like that on my LO, but believe me, there's many times I too feel like venting!!! Some people are just jealous because the of happiness you have in life, and prehaps they are lacking that. It's unfortunate that people have to judge others just by a damn 'ol job title!!

You Rock Pinky! I love it when you are so raw and put down exactly how you feel. And oh my gosh! I could NEVER do all that you do. And being a SAHM is the most important job of them all! You've got your hands full lady and you know the truth. Forget those stoopid people! I think some people just have too much time on their hands and need to be bitchy to others. Ugh!

Southernbelle said...

Lovin' it gf!

Deanna said...

Love love love your layout, your attitude, everything! You are a real womens women! :)

i think when all is said and done, most things women say are said out of jealousy!

rose said...

you rock girl

TxScrapAddict said...

We all know women like that don't we? Well you said it!

michele said...

I HATE mean people! Love your honesty, love your journalling, love your LO and love you.

Sad, but true...every scrapper meets another scrapper that is just plain mean. But simply put, the other scrapper is just jealous of the work you do, and if that other scrapper just focused on their own work instead of picking apart others, then they would excel themselves and have more scrappy time. I am not a SAHM, but I have taken care of my neice for weeks at a time, while on vacation from work. And I really could not handle it. She needed and wanted my attention every waking hour. Being home for just one child is a full time job itself. I could not imagine 3. I do not have any children but I do admire women that do. It is a full time job 10 times folded.

Michelle Ramsay said...

Wow Pinky what an honest post. I agree, people should accept what others do and not judge them. There are all sorts of reasons why people work or don't and work from home or not. The ones that bad mouth you are purely and simply jealous that they are not able to do what you are doing and doing it well.Well done to you and I still say that you are an absolute inspiration to lots of people out there, so don't ever let the "bad eggs" spoil anything for you.

You go GIRL!

Kiwi The Kreator said...

i don't curse but my fave saying when you've worked my LAST good nerve? SCREW DEM HOES!!!! they're just jealous because they can't stay home...heifers!!! you KNOW i'm still simmering from yesterday, right?

donnacr said...

Well said Pinky ! I have put up with this kind of attitude from many " well -meaning " people over the past 35 yrs ! I say it takes more balls to stay home and raise your kids then it does to go out and work ...... Staying at home is HARD work but rewarding ! To each their own but why knock it if you haven't been in that position ? KWIM ? Kudos for saying it like it is and keep up with these fabulous layouts !

I'm really glad I got linked to here from your Fiskateers page. Your layouts are just amazing. I've been needing some inspiration and I've come to the right place!

I am a stay at home mom as well. I was going back to work after #1 and got pregnant with #2. If there's one thing we learn being moms is that you ADAPT. And I say screw any person (male or female) that tries to cut other women down. How about supporting one another?
