The Rub In This Trip
I have driven through Nashville. I always thought I would go back and attend some music events. I thought I may go there with my husband, who listens to primarily old country. He is not much of a fan of new country. So, I am not really sure that he will like Nashville. Well, that is not true. Maybe I am trying to make excuses for not going with him before now. Or even not going with him now. He would probably love it and that is the rub!! Will this be rubbing him the wrong way. I spoke with him and he did not seem to care one way or the other. Is it because we have no definite plans yet? Is it that he really doesn't care and would not want to spend money going to Nashville. He tells me he is content staying home and doing the things he does here. If we had lots of money, he wouldn't mind going to Hawaii once.
A No Fear Relationship
Stephanie calls back after checking the movie times and what is showing and says, “Okay, well, I think I picked the perfect movie for both of us but it just started, so the next one isn’t for two and a half hours and that would make for a late night. Want to just skip it?” Nothing else? “Not really” she says. No, let’s just go. I’ll take a nap before we go. I’m tired now. Is this lying getting to be a habit with Stephanie now I think to myself? What am I afraid of. We probably need to have a talk about my fear and hers. So, then our relationship will be built on no fear! Yes, good luck with that I think. It won’t hurt to give it a try. I want to be in a relationship that is built on honesty and truth. Yes, I know it is important for us to get there. I think she will agree.
My Many Hero's
To Whom May Be Concerned, In my lifetime I saw many hero's and there are some things I have learned, some things that I am hopeful that you may have learned too. Many have not really thought too much about these hero's, so I am here to talk about them for you also.
Sleep Is Important For Good Mental Health
Newborn kittens can sleep about 20 hours a day. Cats and dogs from 12 - 16. Most will sleep 8 hours at night. Cats will usually live longer than dogs. Maybe due to their nine lives. Maybe their sleeping habits. Both experience rem sleep and that is a good thing as it is the most restful sleep. They need more sleep than humans though as it takes them longer to get their rem sleep and they will get about half as much rem sleep as we do, even with sleeping longer.
Counting My Blessings Always
Okay, well maybe today! I am happily married on this Saturday, that's right and every day is Saturday when you retire, and every night is Friday night! I have been blessed with the best in-laws, in spite of being married three times.
Fiction Or Not
As I wrote a story about the picture below, I was so upset that I had not gotten a better photo, when I saw it! A small circular light in the bushes. Not just one but others too. The fog looking material in the picture I thought at first was my lack of photography skill when I realized that may not be it at all! It may be why the critter doesn’t look familiar and no one that looked at it could really say what it is. And even though I was stopped and looking in the direction of the critter, the critter only looked toward me for seconds, and then looked back again at the small circular light. I thought it odd that the critter didn’t move into the woods. I left shortly, and thought that maybe he was hit and needed time to get okay. I let it go until today!
2022 New Years Resolutions
Sara sat down to write out her New Years Resolution’s. Not one but a whole list. For many years she has listened to other people’s New Years resolutions. She has never taken it seriously. However, this summer her class of 1972 is having a fifty year all class reunion. Now, if there was any time to get serious about a new year’s resolution wouldn’t it be this year?
