Not So Much

In case you didn't realize it, I work part-time with my mom. We are real estate agents for Prudential in Coronado.

My dear mom, in efforts to help promote my blog, told me that she asked our office secretary to send out a mass email to Prudential agents in the office--asking them to check out my blog.

Hmm. I don't know how much of my blog you've read, but a lot of it is...well, let's just say it's not fit for business consumption.

I was mortified. The interaction went something like this.

"MOM! HOW COULD YOU? There is some crazy stuff on my blog! You can't send it out to all the Prudential agents! I cuss on my blog! I drop f-bombs! I talk about sex! I talk about my boobs! Have you even READ my blog???"

Let's just say the conversation went downhill from there. My mom has not been sleeping well since she adopted her new cat (he is still adjusting and meows all night) and I am crazy, pregnant and hormonal. Oh, and now I'm paranoid.

Anyway, here are the top reasons why my blog should not be sent out on a mass email to Prudential agents.

1. I talk about pre-marital sex and birth control, and a condom breaking.
2. I describe my painful episiotmy.
3. I bag on a local church.
4. I talk about my husband wanting me to dress like a stripper.
5. I discuss the pros and cons of getting a boob job.
6. For the LOVE OF GOD, I talk about hemorrhoids.

Clearly, my dear mother hasn't read much of my blog, because if she had, she would know that this is not exactly the kind of information that needs to be spread throughout a place of business. Anyway, we were able to intercept the email, and everything is fine. She obviously had good intentions and was just proud of me, which is sweet, but....

I understand that my blog is very public, and I am posting information out there for the world to see...and if people from work stumble upon it, or my mom shares it with others on a one-on-one basis, that's just fine! But again, I did have a small heart attack yesterday.

Or am I just stupid and paranoid?


  1. So I just found you through Circle of Moms and I love your blog! Although well intentioned, I can see why you wouldn't want some of these things shared with everyone in the office : )

    Can't wait to read more!


  2. Hi Susan, I love your blog also! I was seriously cracking up last night at your post Toddlers vs. Assholes. That was the funniest thing I've read in a long time! :) Can't wait to read more of yours also.

  3. Hahaha...SO FUNNY! I can just imagine the panic!

  4. Ha, glad I'm not the only one who'd feel weird about that! I had a horrible vision of sitting in a round-table office meeting and someone asking me what I decided to do about my boobs, or if it still hurt to sit down. eeeek!

  5. I probably would have had a mild heart attack. I'm still fairly new to the whole blogging thing and think of myself as fairly amateur so I'm not quite ready to announce to everyone I know that I have it. When they discover it on their own, that's okay but I couldn't handle the spotlight of everyone at once. Your mother meant well but it was still a heart-stopping moment to be sure :)

  6. Thanks Kat...agreed!!! I'm all for people discovering it on their own!

  7. I've just downloaded iStripper, so I can have the sexiest virtual strippers stripping on my taskbar.
