Clarification

I just wanted to clarify something...I am not ungrateful and I did not mean to come off as such. I was venting more about the fact that I feel completely powerless here. These past few months a whole array of things have occurred that have made me feel like other people are making choices for me rather than allowing me make my own choices or have some say. I do not enjoy feeling powerless. I do not enjoy feeling as if I have to meet conditions to please people. I do not enjoy people telling me how things are going to be regarding things that I am involved in. I was more upset about feeling like I was being controlled and losing power than anything else.

We are so lucky to have been given this opportunity from my FIL, really and truly. I am grateful for it and I do not mean to sound like some snob who wants what she wants, etc. I just needed to get it out and my fingers, I guess, went faster than my mind.

I don't think you needed to clarify anything. I understood where you were coming from. =)

agreed - it's YOUR blog. you can say/vent whatever you please. don't let cowards who post anonymous posts get to you.
besides, you weren't being unreasonable in the first place!

I fully heard in your previous post how entirely grateful you are to your FIL. It wasn't even a question.

You are a person - a person with an opinion - and you must stick to it. Your husband and FIL are discussing a vehicle purchase without even considering your opinion.

That is the bottom line.

Keep your head up and like the previous post said, don't let anonymous comments get to you :)

You guys are great! I was worried that I sounded like poor little rich girl..which I'm not...and then that anonymous comment popped up and I thought "Crap, I better say something and clarify where I was coming from!"

Thanks, really you're the best!! :)

I better not get home and see a Vue in my driveway or heads are gonna roll! ;)

OMG... that was the last thing on my mind. I totally "get it" and understand.

BTW, I have had so much on my mind and never got around to finishing the meme. I swear it will be done before 2008. Heehee.

If you can't vent on your blog where can you vent? I understood your frustration on the first post. I hope you feel better with it all off your chest.

Someone who posts without signing their name is a coward? What??? When you have a PUBLIC blog surely you are hoping that people are reading it and HOPEFULLY that they have an opinion of their own. Unless, of course, I missed the fine print that says "Feel free to comment unless your opinion differs from mine". You all go on patting eachother on the back and living in your happy place.

p.s.(does signing my name make it all okay now??)
