Izzy left a comment - she also sent me the same message in another e-mail.
To begin, I have to disagree about her statement not being anti-semitic. Any excuses/rationales will not change that. Seriously are there any "typical complainers?" I live in the real world where people protest about all kinds of things - war, the environment, politics, eating meat, gay marriage, door to door seller or proselytizers, etc. I don't complain about many things - as a matter of fact, my stance on many things is that if it is not illegal & you are not hurting anyone else - who am I to say anything about it?
More to the point, I put the statement in full text on my blog & no one disagreed with me.
My abbreviated response - for the full story:
Were you expecting bloggers/quilters/jews/people to be like stepford wives, happy all the time? Sorry I live in the real world where "people" of all stripes "protest" everything. Protest being a form of complaining. I went on to talk about my lack of complaining while dealing with infertility in general. & stated again that I am disappointed that all of the extra effort that we had to go through to have a baby that I will only have a small amount of time with that baby.
I also stated that I don't complain daily about everything...
Would a "typical complainer" complain non-stop? Maybe, I know some people who are fairly gloomy on a regular basis.
Sorry, I have not figured out how to cut & paste into blogger on my MAC.
I promise that this is the end of this subject. This is a quilt blog. Just happens that this quilter is pregnant & lives with 2 cats... So that means that I will talk about, praise, & complain about that stuff.
To make this quilty - If I were more of a perfectionist quilter who liked "hard" patterns, I would be continually negative about my horrible seams & even more so about my "pressing." I have "ruined" more that my fair share of block units through poor pressing. So much so, I cut large & trim down afterwards.
