Sad.....

It was brought to my attention that someone has taken over my Meet Me On Monday meme!! I was very sadden to hear this as I was never asked or told about this until after the fact. I worked really hard to establish that meme and for someone to take it over like that is very disheartening to me. I started the meme in June 2010!!!  Almost 2 years ago!!
Now that I am starting it back up again this person has decided to keep it going but changing it just a bit....and I mean bit as it is almost exactly the way I host it. All my hard work and efforts all for someone else to take it over. I hope that you will remember this and link up on the "original" Meet Me On Monday starting this Sunday night!

We have not heard back about the house yet and Wednesday it will be 1 week! That is really poor communication and we can't believe we haven't heard anything yet! I know no news is good news but its driving us crazy!!

I hope everyone had a nice Easter! Mine was really nice! Here are some picture of the boys!! They could not find their Easter baskets again and the Easter bunny hid them really quick on Saturday night because she was tired! Grande's was on the washer behind the shoe basket, Tall's was in the bathroom cabinet under a hand towel (they looked there at least 4 times and didn't see it!)...and Short's was in Venti's old room in a box! hehe....I finally had to give them hints while not being obvious as Short still believes in the Easter Bunny!

Happy Tuesday!!

  1. What a handsome family you have! I wasn't aware that someone else was doing MMOM, but..how rude not to tell you! I'm sooo glad you're starting it back up! I'll definitely be participating!

  2. Great pictures.
    I was aware that someone else was doing MMOM, but thought that this had been arranged with you. I'm glad you're back :-)

  4. As far as I'm concerned, what happened is out-right stealing. Shame on them! And good on you for sticking up for your rights. Lovely photos of a happy day. And, er, your cat is amazing!

  5. I thought the same as Eva and the MMOM was being looked after for you since she had the link to you in her opening paragraph. Anyhoo, can't wait for your first lot of questions.
    Love the family pics. Looks like they had a great Easter

  6. -Nat- no I was never asked and didn't even know about it until it had been going on for awhile!

    -Kittie- thanks!!

  7. 4 fine boys (men) you have there Java. Love that they still get Easter baskets!
    Stealing your MMOM meme is downright rude. I will participate only in yours, the original one. Hope I might have time to join in this week, but if not, then soon.

  8. Sorry to hear about the MMOM being taken over. I hadn't heard either. Hopefully everyone that was with you before will come back and continue participating. Those are great pics of the boys. So glad you had a nice Easter.

  9. Thank you for the heads up about this Java. I've only had the chance to participate a few times and thought YOUR idea was a great one. You have my promise that I will only participate in this one and when I do I will make sure to point out this is the original MMOM site!

    What great pictures of the boys! My husband gives me a hard time because I still give my 17 year old son an Easter basket, now I have proof I'm not the only one! lol! Thanks for sharing that!

  10. -Susan-thank you!! I appreciate that!!

    That is cute about your 17yr old because my theory is that as long as you are living at home, the Easter Bunny will still bring you a basket!! Grande is 21 and he put on his Facebook, "Happy Easter...I'm 21 and I still get an Easter basket!"....and 30 of his friends "liked" it!!

  11. Java your family photos are great! You can see a great time was enjoyed!! Beautiful family.

    I'm speechless that someone would outright duplicate your creative MMOM , without so much as contacting you first to see if you were continuing or what the status was - it would have been plain old courtesy and respect. Then to go and copy all the hard work and use the same name ... that's like taking someone's blog name ... glad that you are making us aware of this and also are going to restart it, I will try and participate when I can. xo HHL

  12. I never really participated in MMOM, but I think it is terrible that someone would just take it over without discussing it with you. Not good etiquette at all. Glad you are taking it back and SPEAKING UP.

  13. I thought it was a mutual agreement that the other person had taken over MMOM! Oh well, don't let it bother you..we will still be here! Remember: Life is too short to sweat the small stuff!!!
    Glad your back, loved the pictures..just focus on the positive!!

  14. OUch! I've never done mmom, but know where to find the original if I can get myself in gear after the a-z challenge!

  15. I'm a bit gutted too, because I took a break from my Wot So Funee and a more well-known blogger started up an almost exactly the same meme. Now I'm back and all my old linkers are over there! So I will try an join in, because it was/is definitely the original that I like the best :)

  16. As many others I had no idea she had not received permission to start doing MMOM on her blog. I have not and will not participate in hers.

    Love the pictures and just so you know I am grown, married, and have children of my own but can still expect an Easter basket at my parents house every year!

  17. I thought she had coordinated that with you too, bummer! I'm sorry it's got you down but I think we all know who the original MMOM is! :) Welcome back, can't wait for it to start up again.

  18. I had that person ask me to join /their/ version of MMOM, but I didn't even acknowledge them. You're the person I got it from, your posts are the one I'll continue answering!! Can't wait for the comeback next Monday! :)

    Good luck in everything!

  19. Looks like somebunny had a wonderful Easter!!!

    I can't wait to get back into MMOM with you this weekend. Woo Hoo!

    ReplyDelete
  20. You guys are the best! You know I had a feeling that she went to MY lists and contacting people to join her version and now I have validation of that! Some people just take from others without thinking of their own ideas!

    I am just as excited as you all are and I can't wait to read your answers!!!

  21. Java the easter pics are lovely- and the only thing I EVER participate in is your over 40 friday follow- and Dollys music one- evey once in a great while- but I'm so glad you started the fridays back up.
    So sad to hear about the Monday thing- you'd think someone would respect that you worked hard to bring that!

  22. I'm so glad your meme is coming back. I must not be in the loop... I had no idea about the "hijacked" meme! Don't worry... I'll only participate in yours... can't wait for Sunday night!
