A Pinterest Freaky


Hello, Dear Ones!
Well, my post today is a little different.
It's about Pinterest.
 Let me set the scene for you.
Most of you know my little mother is in the nursing home under Hospice care.
She has settled down now and even though mentally she's really not here her vitals have leveled out and she is resting comfortably and not in pain.
 I was beside myself for quite some time and just couldn't do anything! 
I just sat and looked at Pinterest...and pinned and pinned.
 I pinned so many Tildas that I actually started another Tilda board because my first one had over 1,000 pins! I know I'm obsessed! :)
 Now this is what happened.
I was pinning away and pinned a pretty Tilda and a window popped up saying:

 Whoops!
You can't repin this pin because {username} blocked you. {learn_more}
 What?
I couldn't pin anything from her Tilda board!
Has this ever happened to you?
 Well, I was shocked!
I didn't even know this person either.
 I got nosey and found out she is a blogger.
I've never heard of her blog and I don't think she's ever been to mine.
I won't tell you her name or the name of her blog in case you know her.
Well, I commented on her blog and on a pin of hers on Pinterest.
I told her who I was, my blog's name and all and said,"I don't know you and wondered why you had blocked me from your boards". Of course I've never heard a word from her.
It hurt my feelings a bit thinking someone would block me and that it was someone who doesn't even know me!
Did she not like it that I had pinned so many Tildas? Who knows!
Why do you think she did this? 
Hmmm...just venting to you and I know I can't do anything about it
 and it's really not a big deal, sort of.
I wanted to ask you ~ would you block her back or just ignore it?

I'm baffled but I know I'll get over it.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

Hit Me With Your Best Shot

Well you're the real tough cookie
With the long history
Of breaking little hearts
Like the one in me
That's OK,
Lets see how you do it
Put up your dukes,
Lets get down to it
Hit me with your best shot
Why don't you hit me
With your best shot
Hit me with your best shot
Fire Away

You come on with a "come on"
You don't fight fair
But that's OK, see if I care
Knock me down, it's all in vain
I'll get right back on my feet again

Hit me with your best shot
Why don't you hit me
With your best shot
Hit me with your best shot
Fire Away

Well, you're the real tough cookie
With the long history
Of breaking little hearts
Like the one in me
Before I put another notch
In my lipstick case
You better make sure
You put me in my place

Hit me with your best shot
Come On, hit me with your best shot
Hit me with your best shot
Fire Away

Hit me with your best shot
Why don't you hit me with your best shot
Hit me with your best shot
Fire Awa
