Homeschool Group Hell 2009

This post was supposed to be introducing my e-book. I've been working on it for 3 months now. I expected it to be quick, like the Laid-Back Parenting one I did. The difference is that "Get Published in Regional Parenting Magazines" is 10 times longer with an Excel database attached. I just want it to be accurate.

Anyway, I'm hopefully officially out of my Catholic homeschool group as of today. I'd asked to be removed before, but wasn't. Since then, all kinds of bitchy in-fighting has occurred and I just can't let a crappy post enter my e-mail box without responding and questioning WHY ARE YOU SO DAMN PIOUS? I swear women live to bitch, and I wonder when THESE women have time to homeschool since they are so concerned about how everyone else is living their life.

No wonder so many people leave their church, ANY church, ANY religion. The arguing and lack of acceptance is incredible. And I'm not talking about asking someone to accept and befriend a pedophile or axe murderer (although you never know everything about a person ... you could be sending your kid to spend the night with a pedophile and not know it and do it anyway just because the person is Catholic) ... but the things these "support group" women pick on are crazy (Halloween costume selections, Obama, wondering if it's okay to do the sign of the cross with your left hand instead of your right).

I'm getting out of this group before it implodes and before I lose my love of God and humanity.
