Would you kiss again the last person you kissed?
HippieChick58 comments on May 20, 2018:
The last human I kissed was SamSam, my granddaughter. I am sure she will get many more kisses. The kitties get lots of kisses.
Good morning! Enjoy your day. I for one will be lazy today :P
HippieChick58 comments on May 20, 2018:
I have made breakfasts for next week, and lunches for next week just need dressing. I forgot some of the ingredients yesterday so need to go back to the store. Cleaned the kitchen a bit and ran the dishwasher for the first time. I will be lazy later.

What clothing if any do you like to wear when watching TV?
HippieChick58 comments on May 20, 2018:
I wear whatever I've had on most of the day. I don't change clothes often, and I keep clothes on while I am up because I like to keep the blinds open and don't want to freak out the neighbors. I suppose my best answer would be work clothes, but the clothes I'm wearing today when I'm not working could be worn to work. Are they work clothes or leisure clothes, and in my leisure time I'm working to get ready for next week; housework and that stuff. And for that matter I don't think the TV has been on in a week.
I just spent two hours weeding ahead of the rain they are predicting tonight. Found baby tomatoes!!
HippieChick58 comments on May 20, 2018:
I got 3 types of tomatoes planted this weekend. I have two varieties of cherry tomatoes and one slicing tomato. It will be a bit yet before I can harvest. I also planted several varieties of herbs. Catnip got potted ;) that makes the kitty girls happy.
Are social expectations an influence on how parents feel towards their children?
HippieChick58 comments on May 19, 2018:
I can only speak for me. Just taking care of a baby causes those bonding hormones to kick in. I had moments when I didn't LIKE my kids very much, but I always loved them, I would always have given my life for them.
How do people feel about people who are childless?
HippieChick58 comments on May 19, 2018:
I think if you don't want children you should not have them. How tragic to be brought into the world when you're unwanted. I think everyone needs to make the responsible choice. Don't make babies unless you're sure you want them and can take care of them. I applaud any woman who makes the choice NOT to have children because she does not want them. She is doing what is best for her and the child. One of my girls is the greatest aunt ever, but does not want to have babies. She has never wanted to have babies. Her body, her life, her choice and I support her and every other woman making that choice. And for the guys, if you don't want to have children, make sure you're not spilling fertile seed.
Which do you do...?

Does anyone else talk aloud to themselves?
HippieChick58 comments on May 19, 2018:
I talk to the cats, which is about the same thing. I had a horrible cold a few weeks ago, I had to talk out loud so I could figure out if I had a voice and if I should go to work. I spend a lot of time on the phone, if I can't talk there is no sense in going to work.

The term, ‘separated’ is a bit vague.
HippieChick58 comments on May 19, 2018:
True. I dated a man once who listed his status as separated. Well, he wanted a divorce, but was still living in the same house and she didn't know about his plans. That isn't separated, it is messed up. Even if you are separated waiting for the divorce to become final, IMHO, you're not ready for a few relationship for a while yet. You've got some emotional and financial work to do before you can move on.
I'm not interested in the royal wedding but, I must admit, I love any wedding that's not mine
HippieChick58 comments on May 19, 2018:
There is thrifty Scots blood in my heritage and I look at modern weddings and smh. The "average" wedding is well over $10,000. The average wedding gown costs over $2000. I used to watch "Say Yes to The Dress." Why do people spend so much money on a dress that will be worn once and for part of ONE DAY? $40,000 would be a nice down payment for a house that will last you the rest of your life. What are our priorities? I will never marry again. But if I did it would be a quick ceremony in front of a judge followed by a cocktail party type reception. Nice dress maybe but nothing over $200. And if the whole party costs more than $3000 something is horribly wrong.
Help! Sitting here in Discount Tire waiting for my work truck to get new tires and I'm being forced...
HippieChick58 comments on May 19, 2018:
I would ask to speak to the manager and ask if the tunz could be changed. I'd let them know I don't care for their choice in music. If they give pushback I'd email corporate and tell them I can find other places to get my tired done, and I'd put a comment on their FB page. I use a local discount tire, I don't remember any music in the waiting area.
What turns you on?
HippieChick58 comments on May 19, 2018:
Turn on: Intelligence, sense of humor, kindness, compassion, tolerance, caring, personality, charm. Turn offs: Bigotry, racism, intolerance, unkindness, impatience, poor personal hygiene. I had a date last summer with a good looking dude. As soon as he told me how much he liked DT, how he was a good business man, he became the ugliest man I'd ever met. Beauty is skin deep but ugly goes all the way to the bone.
Hello everyone, today as I'm playing PC games my bells rings.
HippieChick58 comments on May 19, 2018:
I don't feel bad for being short or abrupt with them. They are rude to show up unannounced and without invitation. They are intruding on my time and space, and spare time is not in abundance in my life. IF I answer the door I tell them very quickly that I am NOT interested and please do not visit again. I am thinking of putting a sign out that says "No Solicitors".

Does anyone here like to correct grammar, spelling or punctuation?
HippieChick58 comments on May 19, 2018:
I admit, I am a grammar nazi, but I am also a truly nice person. I just cringe and move on, unless the substance of what you wrote is wrong and then if I comment I will express my opinion and subtly (or not so subtly) correct the grammar/spelling. I have decided life is short and I need to choose my battles wisely. The battle is worth fighting if it will still matter next week or it could affect me or my babies.

My sister was recently reorganizing the furniture in the guest bedroom .
HippieChick58 comments on May 18, 2018:
I think if I moved my nightstand it would look like that, plus I'm missing several lip balm tubes. I found one of the cats playing with a similar tube on the stairs.... I think under the bed, and under the sofa will look the same. The same cat knocks dry cat food around for hours, and I think a cup or two may be underneath the stove and fridge by now.

Fer sure!! My drug of choice is sugar in the form of chocolate (most of the time). Since I've realized it is a real addiction and it's killing me I've dealt with it somewhat better. Gambling is also an addiction/abuse issue. There are many. A study among folks with bypass surgery shows that after surgery they often switch to another non food related addiction, often compulsive shopping or gambling. The underlying issues need to be addressed.

If it was a deliberate snub, it is not about you, it is about that person not being worthy of your friendship. It is hard, and embarrassing, but now you know. You have earned wisdom for the pain. Don't internalize their action, their opinion is not the measure of you. It is their problem, leave it to be their problem. And stay strong!

I find it interesting that 80% of all alcoholics have mental illness.
HippieChick58 comments on May 16, 2018:
One test is if you can have alcohol in the house and not drink. One of my early BFs was an alcoholic, with the DWI and demotion to prove it. If he bought a six pack, he drank the six pack that night, indeed within hours of bring it home. He could not have one tonight, one on Friday, two on Saturday and finish it next Tuesday. I have wine and hard liquor in my kitchen, some has been there for years. Alcohol is not my problem, however there is no chocolate in my house.

A few years ago he was reading a letter from an elderly retired couple that was asking about tithing. They could not tithe and eat, and their meds had increased in price and they were falling behind. Instead of suggesting it was time for their church to help out with groceries or meals, or they no longer needed to tithe, he told them they should get jobs. OMFG. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1impGb4TJTs
