Yup! That’s my kid!

I will try to describe myself as others see me: carefree, optimistic, generous, and kind. Oh, wait those are qualities that I would like to have; it’s how I would like others to see me. Carefree? Who over the age of eight is really carefree? No one that I can respect; I find it to be an immature and annoying trait in adults. I am ever optimistic about my cynicism. I know, for sure, that it will guide me to the correct conclusions. I would like to think that when opportunites for kindness and generosity of spirit present themselves I can rise to the occasion; sadly, these opportunities are few and far between.

I write this blog for myself. It helps me to exorcise some of my demons and it forces me to think. Before I began writing things down (and, sometimes, just writing them in my head is enough) I was constantly talking to my husband about them and becoming annoyed because it was clear that he was not listening. And for damn sure my teenager is not listening! Here, at least I know that once in a while someone may actually be listening. And that’s enough for me.

I wish that I could post more frequently, but sometimes it becomes a chore. I do not need another chore. I have a teenager!

I hope that you enjoy what I am able to contribute. Thanks for listening!

    Thanks for letting me know about the statue on my site. I am going to take it down. I don’t like posting things that are not 100% correct. Thanks for letting me know! Have a great day and keep in touch :)

      Oh, maybe don’t take it down— just put an addendum — because the statue is beautiful, regardless that he was paid to do it — and it looks like it will come back to the US to be displayed. The info was not completely inaccurate.

    In my own (and every other man’s defense) that thing about husbands not listening etc is actually a stipulation of the wedding vows themselves, namely “till deaf do us part”.

    Thank you so much for my Festivus gift! The wind started up again this week and it was so cold! I thought many times about my white and navy wind suit with lime green piping and wished I could put it on right then! Hope you have a great Festivus, a Merry Christmas, and a Happy 2013!

  14. Hola :-)

    The word around these parts is that you’d be willing to go on tour with me for the Prizes and to study my chronic self-pollution illness ? :-) If this is true let the good time roll :-)
