Today's list of what is on my mind



1: Will our society survive ourselves

2: Do we even deserve to survive; why are we, as a country, society, still not understanding why hate has no place in our hearts.

3: Protesting doesn't include riots

4. Protesting doesn't include looting/rioting

5: Free persons protest; criminals loot/riot

6: Protesters are not criminals because they protest; two different groups of people; not to be judged as one

7: My mom scolded me harshly for ever using the word "hate" said about a person or group.

8: Many of us are tired; exhausted; tired of anxiety about illness and exhausted by grief.

9: I want to go to the forest

10: I want to go to the ocean

11: I want people to value other people; you don't have to like everyone or agree with them, just accept they are equal.

12: Black Lives Matter.

Visit out of the blue

I have mixed feelings about people just dropping by our home.  Most of the time the folks that just stop by are friends that live nearby and drop by when they are visiting another mutual friend in the neighborhood.  Nothing is expected and nothing is awkward.

Last weekend we had surprise visitor from my former step-son.  I say "former" not because I stopped considering my step-sons from my first marriage family when we divorced, but to specify that I am not talking of Zach.  It is odd that I have been rather a permanent step parent since I was 18.  My first marriage (I only have two, don't panic) I was step-mom to two boys, full time, as their Dad had custody.  It was a very unpleasant situation.  The parents did not get along; in fact they actively fought and it was miserable.  I really do not feel like dredging all of it up but it involved courts both civil and criminal.  Looking back now I think that their mother was treated badly and even though she had made mistake…

I was gone but now I am here

I had to set my blog aside while I finished my degree and adjusted to new challenges at work.  I moved into a management position in 2016 and also decided to further my education.

While I can say that I am happy I did it, I can also say I am happy it is done.  My college education has always been done while working full time.  The majority of my schooling has been funded by employer provided educational assistance.  While that is a gift I am grateful for, it did not pay for all and it required me to work full time and school 3/4 time.

Working and going to school was much easier in the 20's than now in my 40's.  All of a sudden I feel my age creeping into my life like mold.  I know it is partly because while pursuing this most recent educational goal I also had major knee surgery, leaving me in a wheel chair for six weeks.  I felt the consequences of my age in fatigue from working and studying but also in the comparison between recovering from a hysterectomy in my 30's qu…
