Icing on the cake...

to an already tough day! I seriously had so many plans for today. I was going to get a cleaning chart/dinner chart made to help me organize my life a bit, clean out closets, start working on our taxes, and clean clean clean... oh and I wanted to exercise- I really did! But by 4 o'clock today I hadn't done one of those things and had to start thinking about dinner plans. While dinner was in the oven I pulled out the load of laundry that I had fluffing in the dryer (from yesterday) and tossed them on my bed to start folding. I'm telling you...it's just been one of those days! I just bursted into tears... do you ever do that? I don't know...sometimes I feel like such a failure...in ever aspect. I continued to tend to my duties as a mother, but couldn't stop crying! Gosh. Logan just kept looking at me and saying "Mommy" and I just smiled and said "Mommy's just so happy I have you that it makes me cry happy tears!" The things we do to protect their innocence! My hubby got home...dinner was served...I cleaned up...and made myself a tanning appointment! Thought a little sun-type light and feel would do me good and rejuvenate me. The whole 20 minutes were bliss! But I got home and checked my email (comments on my blog are e-mailed to me) to find...and this is SO not blog worthy BUT...I have a "fan" out there (who would like to remain anonymous-- I had to laugh at that! If you are a fan leave your name at least!) that left a comment saying that my "branding" is distracting on my photography. Maybe others feel that way as well...but the reason for it is simply so that no one-- since my blog is open for the world to see...can steal the photograph. See...on my photography website my clients & family are protected because there isn't an option to copy/paste or save any photography what so ever. On the blog however, people are free to do what they wish. You can never be too careful-- and I recommend everyone (even if you aren't a photographer) protect your loved ones by doing the same. Simply put a "copyright (your or your blog name)" on it. That way if you do find that someone has taken your photograph without your permission (and claimed it as theirs) you have done your part in protecting it and they have done it against the law! Most photographers put the branding directly in the center of the photo so as to eliminate the option for someone to simply do a little crop job to the photograph and vuala...it's now theirs! (Some people have no conscious.) Of course when I send a clients photograph to my lab to be printed is significantly smaller and off to the far corner! So...I like helpful criticism-but when it comes from someone who wants to remain anonymous it is a little hard to swallow because to me it shows that it was meant to be hurtful...not helpful. So my cake is now frosted...hopefully someone chows it all down tonight and I can start fresh *on a better cake* tomorrow! P.S. I had to removed the comment because every time I read it I would get a sick feeling inside and couldn't stop wondering who posted it...I even started tracking my site meter to narrow it down...ha like I don't have better things to be doing! So instead of waisting my time...there you go!
