$2.30

That is how much money I have earned from the 11 clicks to the Google adsense ads on momreality. I don't think I'm going to be able to retire off that! I have put quite a bit of effort into setting up the site and that is why I have not done very much blogging lately. I paid the $20 a month to get the ads off the ning site and run my own. I do like having more control, but we will have to see if it is worth the monthly fee.
I also set up several Amazon stores but have yet to receive an order. It's a good thing this is my hobby and not a business. I suspect the money I spend on my Web hobbies is less than other hobbies. It probably runs me about $500 a year for all my domain registrations, hosting and social networks. That doesn't include the broadband service and accounts for WoW and Second Life.

Disappear

Almost every time someone from my past finds me online, we send a few messages and then they disappear. I don't get it. Why do they bother writing at all, if they are just going to stop after 2 messages? Do I say something to scare them off? Sometimes I wonder if it is because I respond so quickly. Maybe they think I'm desperate for friends. I'm not. I'm just online all the time and I respond quickly to most messages. It would be nice to keep the conversation going and find out how differently our lives ended up. I can think of at least 5 friends who found me and then just suddenly stopped writing. Sad.

Bizarre Flashbacks

We were at a party on Independence Day and I had to find a private room to nurse the baby. There was another mom there with a baby a few months younger than Zaeden. She asked what he was eating and I told her I was breastfeeding. She said, "Breast milk is best for them!"
I suddenly flashed back to when Ivy was Z's age and we had a Memorial Day party. There was another mom there with a baby a little younger than Ivy and she asked me what room I had designated for breastfeeding. At the time, I was offended. I was no longer nursing Ivy and this mom kept telling me I should be and that formula wasn't healthy. I looked at her scrawny baby and my healthy chubby baby and was offended. I left the party!
Not long after that, her baby died and I felt so much guilt over my actions. The original cause of death was listed as SIDS, but the autopsy proved it was pneumonia. They had taken her to the doctor many times and it just wasn't diagnosed. I think that experience is why I still don't feel like a "nursing mother." I still feel like I have to defend formula feeding, even though I have been nursing for almost 9 months.
