    Where do people meet people in real life? Like, not romantically though not not romantically, but just you know meeting people. I tried an art class and the vibe was pretentious. I tried a hiking club and the vibe was strident. I liked my old gym but the coach no longer coaches because he’s busy with his new tattoo business. When I worked in retail that was way too many people but now I hardly deal with people at all and it’s getting a little isolating. Maybe I should go back to school.

    May I suggest a career in law enforcement. We have an opening 👮🏻
    So many words and not a single one appropriate

    You will meet loads of people every 12 hour shift you work. You can look forward to the luxury of switching from days to nights every two weeks. Different people come out at different hours. The options are limitless.


    Overworked and underpaid?
    Maybe consider a small suburb in OK coz the cops here have their own little kingdom. 😂


    So could I be King? 🤔

    Yes... yes, you could.

    I went downstairs at five to get a cup of non-caffeinated tea because that’s what I’m doing now and I smelled food and I thought it was weird that the food smell had lingered so long from last night but then I saw that my 13-year-old was in the kitchen at 5 AM mind you and he was wiping the counter because he had just made chicken fried rice and he didn’t just make chicken fried rice from already cooked ingredients he cooked the frikken chicken and the rice and cut the onion and cut the carrot and scramble the egg and made fried rice and was wiping the counter at 5 AM and the kitchen is clean

    Ok now that’s what I call a favorite 🤩


    Ps
    Does he do take out? Asking for a friend 🤞🥰

    He cleaned up after - congratulations you’re doing it right mom!
    thank you but the other two are slobs so I’m not sure I can take credit for this. He was just born awesome.

    Funny how they can be raised in the same household but be completely different in that regard right ? Eh I say take credit for anything good they do - lol

    As you should since we will be blamed for anything else they do🤷🏻‍♀️🙄😉

    My mom is 85 today 🥳❤️❤️❤️🎂
    She’s such a cutie pie and has such a beautiful soul!❤️❤️❤️

    She has been my hero and my inspiration for all of my life, I always wanted to be a mommy like her from a young age and could tell she was special❤️

    She traveled the world on her own and with her best friend for a portion of it… ok mainly Europe 🤷🏻‍♀️… but still pretty great in the early sixties…

    She also didn’t get married until she was 30 and didn’t have me til she was 31…again not the norm back then (let’s not do the math mkay?!🫣)

    She worked on the first Book Mobile in Boston and was a Librarian for 40 yrs.. she took off time to raise us and went back when I was old enough to baby sit the little ones (she had my youngest brother at 41 something that is so normal now was really odd and rare back then but she loved being a mom(she was the oldest mom of all my friends and classmates but also had such patience and always made us laugh, we always feel so loved and she still does!

    I found a pic of her that was taken when I was 2 and she was pregnant with my other brother … I think she was and still is so beautiful inside and out and well I wanted to share this with you all and ask for prayers to keep her safe and well.

    We are going to the neurologist next week to evaluate for dementia 😔… her mom had Alzheimer’s and she has been repeating things lately and as if she hadn’t just said it so we want to be proactive🙏🏻
    (Her mom lived with us thru the worst of the disease and it wrecked us she was as such another lovely soul and it’s so unfair and heartbreaking to all those dealing with it and their family and supporters)

    This is a chick who had breast cancer at 80 and beat it 🥰 so we are all hopeful still a little extra prayers or positive thoughts couldn’t hurt right?!

    I know this is hella long so sorry whole heartedly Thank you for letting me interrupt your regularly scheduled shenanigans and for your kindness…. It’s been a really rough year for me as some of you know and I am anxious and scared…::…and well here’s my sweet mom who was rockin her flip cut back in 1970😍

    Aww she's beautiful
    I hope all goes well at the neurologist. My Nana has Alzheimer's it's so not fun, as we were clearing out our house we found the doctor's report about her cognition....it was sad to read

    Apparently a lot of seniors have suffered dementia like issues and it's just from under stimulation from the pandemic so fingers crossed it's simply that. Or I've heard heart conditions can cause this too. Good luck neurologist appointments are never fun (ok unless they were to my mom's after her brain surgery when the cute spanish guy was programing her brain implants)
