You asked, Stan.
This year has been particularly messed up for so many and on so may levels that it’s hard to say “Happy Thanksgiving” with any conviction or faith but there is one thing to be thankful for: that those of us still alive are…well.. still alive. Best and better futures to all and let us be grateful for what we have left.
Depends on the context. An angry quiet woman is one to deeply respect if not outright fear and avoid for a while. A quiet woman, in general, is sadly easy to omit.
Gets pretty toasty when we all (me, the man, three cats, two big dogs) pile on the couch for a movie night : )
I have to say this: My confusion over this dude is huge. I have in my circle of business and immediate friends several PHd’s, many masters and all generally intelligent people. Most are FOR Trump! These are capable, productive, positive people (mostly women) that pay attention and are quite discerning in their sources of info. I am not anywhere near as intelligent as most of them but I am not dumb. I admit to the struggle to get past his 3 yo mentality with his 4 yo vocabulary but on my girls’ behalf… WHAT do THEY see that I CAN’T? How has he REALLY hurt this country other than spewing such conflicting opinions [daily] that we are the laughing stock of the world atm? THAT is hurtful to our rep as a country and that matters in our business, our credibility as a power source, our standing as a force to be reckoned with in war, our willingness and ability to rescue and repair the world as we trash it… but what has he DONE ? I just don’t understand his appeal to those that I thought would feel differently. I am definitely missing something… or am I? I do not mean to start a political vitriol war or to support or deny anybody’s opinions, I am just genuinely confused (not that it matters now that the election is… almost… over) and seeking intelligent perspectives. The best i can come up with so far is that his irrational ego/mouth too often negates his actions. He does good but spews lava which covers his actions to the point of oblivion for some of us..Sorry for the rant. Not expecting any responses really, just had to say it somewhere. Ok, done now, thank you : )
I am ok with it. If I am pressed into pushing someone away, count on it they won’t be asked or welcomed back.
I never shut mine off this year. Granted the colours are not exclusive to Christmas but the lights are ON :D Many of our townfolk have lit up their yards early this year.. I like it. Fun to road trip around town to see all the lights and decs : )
Daddy’s little girl. So proud to have been MY dad’s little girl : )
Being an introvert with no immediate family other than my man, Covid has actually enhanced my life to a given degree. Less demand for social involvement, less un-necessary interaction, more time spent at home with the ones I truly love, and that love me : ) I know it is the total opposite for so many, truly sorry for those that suffer in solitude and isolation, especially around the holidays that are so family oriented.
