check out the latest on THIS blog. sweet relief.
heres an interesting part of my day:
many of you have read the awful things that were written about myself and jessa (and mrs r) on the first mother forum blog by jane edwards and lorraine dusky, as well as their readers in the comments section of many blog posts. i met jane today, in the flesh, in salem at a meeting regarding the bill. I walked up to her after the meeting, "hello jane (hand extended to shake) im desha wood. i enjoyed reading the slander and misleading 'facts' you wrote about me on your blog!" with a warm friendly smile on my face.
she denied TO MY FACE ever haven written anything about me on her blog!
she said "daisha daisha, no i havent ever written anything about you. i dont know who you are."
i said "yeah, jane you did." i told her my name again, and that i had it all copied and pasted and would be more than happy to email it to her if she needed the reminder. she then said "im confused, i didnt write anything about anybody". i put my arm around her shoulders in a side hug, she is much shorter than i am, and we walked out of the room together, and i laughed and said "jane! you linked my name in your post to my facebook profile!"
and she said "oh, oh yes, that. well that was sub-sequential..." and she mumbled a lot about how that was all an after thought, and unfortunate, (i didnt really hear/understand as she wouldnt speak directly to me and people were entering the room for the next meeting while we were all trying to exit the room, everyone talking/chatting, it was a lil chaotic) and tried to leave my side hug but the hall was crowded so there wasnt really anywhere for anyone to go. mind you, not only did she not fess up to her writings, she never apologized for writing those things.
so i looked her in the one eye and i said to her: "well, i look forward to getting to know you better and working with you on analyzing the current adoption laws and creating positive reform and positive changes if need be, i feel that that can be done, and i am looking forward to it! We will be seeing a lot of each other, and i hope we can work together and overcome our differences!" (she was trying to walk away while i was talking to her, crowded hallway made it difficult) while talking i had let her out of my side hug, tried to shake her hand again, and then as she turned away in disregard i patted her on the shoulders with a lil squeeze and said "see you soon!" i never stopped smiling or using a genuine friendly tone of voice.
must be that damned koolaid. excuse me while i go tend to the rainbow i just farted. hope theres lots of gold at the end. adoption luvs
