Scaling back + being nice.

Posted 05-19-2019 at 09:43 AM by Startingover

My daughter has been a homeowner for 2 yrs now. When she has typical problems in her house I’m now shrugging an saying, “oh dear, Well, you’ll figure it out” as I edge towards the door an head home. Instead of taking care of it myself.


On another matter I was very sad about this.

3 of us women were helping a 90 yr old man. He looked at us and said, “are you Christians?” I replied yes. He said, “you’re nicer to me than the people out there (pointing to window)”...

For a second I thought I might have a $200 turkey. Busy, rushed to store for the turkey breast they held for me. I'm very law abiding. But I needed turkey and withhout realizing was way over speed limit and while I never see police here of course one was sitting behind a bush. Thankfully he didn't stop me.

Nothing like being innocent but getting scolded.

I like taking stairs instead of elevator for exercise.

Few days ago I was in a famous (or well known) building. I was on the 3rd floor and needed 7th floor so I headed to stairwell.

Suddenly I was in a hall...

Parkland.
Wanted to write more but I keep crying. I can't say anything that hasn't been said.

I'm from a family of hunters and gun dealers.

No one needs assault rifles.
