Here's the story. He comes home and hangs his coat on one of the chairs at the dining room table. I don't like this, so I move it. I usually hang it on the door knob to his office. Turns out he doesn't like that...LOL. He actually said, "I don't like stuff hanging on the door knobs."
WTH? Where did this come from? (I think it came from the fact that he couldn't find his coat and it was right in front of him...LOL.)
After he left for work, I cracked up. Out of all the crazy and idiotic things that I do from my OCD-ish behavior, coats on knobs is where he draws the line. I guess in all these years, if this little thing is big enough for him to point out...the least I could do is make the effort to change it. (Now, I gotta go move bras from half the knobs in the house. Don't say you don't do it, too!)

Let me take the time to remember a few of those reasons now:
- I am, for the most part, healthy, wealthy and wise...LOL.
- My children, too, are...see above.
- The hubs, he is,...see above, also.
I think that just about covers it. When I look at the means of others and stop and think about what I have...I could not, should not, ask for more. Daily, I should be thankful. One day, one week, one month is not enough to give thanks for all the blessings in my life, but today...I pause to remember that I fall short, but recognize that it's OK.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

I do not see as many updates as I would like to see. It seems there are more of so and so likes Glad trashbags and so does 5 other people. OK, so do I need to be the 6th? Facebook has some weird idiosyncracies, but all in all, I like it. I like seeing what old friends are doing: getting married, having kids, watching ballgames, even eating at a new sushi place in NYC. It is also wonderful in keeping up with my own children...when they share with their friends, I get to see it. Something that would not happen if we were just sitting around in our own house.
So, before you delete anyone, think about this: why did you add them in the first place? If the word friend pops into your mind, at all, go ahead and keep them...it doesn't hurt anything and next week that person may post the best pics to creep on...The Alamo Trip/122 pictures--"why thank you, I think I will. I have never been to the Alamo."
Happy "Unfriend" Day.

I mean, if I send a birthday card, I do not want one of those liberty bell forever stamps...come on, really? You ALL know those are ugly.
I guess because i get soooo much international mail and I see soooo many great stamps, I can not use anything lame.
Don't think that I don't inspect the stamps on the letters sent to me, of course I do. The UK has great ones Wallace & Gromit, Winnie the Pooh, etc. Russia even has scented stamps! In the US, some of ours are a little weird...famous sailors. Well, they couldn't have been too famous, I had no idea who they were, but then again, thanks USPS...NOW, I do!
Anyway, it is getting to be "holiday" time and that means holiday stamps...not to pleased this year; my Christmas cards will be adorned with pine cones...yes, pine cones! Really, USPS? I know you can't get all religious and stuff, but how about mistletoe instead of pine cones!
Well, now you know...I like stamps, but not all of them...not all the time. Now you have to wait for that Christmas card from me, see what I chose for you...not everybody got pine cones!
