I have been rather quiet recently on the Internet.

First off is that we have a lot going on here so finding the time to just sit and write rather than work on things is a challenge.

Today I have given myself one cup of coffee to write something.

Another reason is because my mother taught me two things that I keep close to my heart. If you haven’t anything nice to say, then think carefully if you should say it at all and think before you speak especially if you are angry.

I have nice things to say to all the people who have helped us this past month. Hard to believe this all started a month ago. Restored my belief in humanity, which has taken quite a hit since the election in the United States.

I will say again, as politely as I can, my child therefor my rules. I know my daughter. I know her likes and dislikes. I can determine what she can and cannot do. I am very careful respect other parent’s wishes when it come to their children. I would like mine respected as well. Nothing specific but I am tired of the looks I get after their children tell them about something Caroline did or saw that they can’t.

I have been frustrated at the gym recently by two groups of patrons who are machine hogs. If you are going to have a long and involved conversation, please don’t have it while sitting at a machine that others want to use and know that, especially if you are being loud because one member is practically deaf, we will hear you and your conversation. The other group are the weigh hogs who grab 4 sets of weights and put them around a bench so that no one else has a chance to use them. They also are the group that sets up a series of machines and then gets upset when you use one that is not being used even if you put the machine back to their preset. Now I do a series on a set of machines, but I work around the other people also using those machines so everyone gets a chance at getting their workout done in a timely fashion. Yeah, that one has been bothering me for a while.

I tend to avoid a lot of the darker places on the Internet. I have heard about 4Chan and other places were trolls seem to meet for the sole purpose of bashing people that they don’t know to make themselves feel better/superior. Right now I am rather ticked off by some ‘fans’ of a show that are being rude and abusive to the people who make the show that they say they love so much. These ‘fans’ have also gone after the actors on various social media platforms to try to win them to their cause. Also an actor is not their role. Someone who can play the villain well is not a villain in real life. That’s why it is called ACTING. Blaming the actor for something that the character did is seven kinds of bad crazy. Yes, I do get angry when I see people having a go at Peter for reasons that surpasses understanding.

This week is packed with things that MUST BE DONE by a certain date or time. As an adult, I have to make this happen. Would I rather be doing something else like writing or puppet making? Sure, but I know what needs to be done so I can get back to those activities. Priorities, I have them.

I honestly don’t know if I am going to radio silence or find myself writing more often. It is going to be one or the other. Please have patience with me either way. I will try to be polite about it.

I am grateful for plumbers who go above and beyond.
