Birthday, we all have them. Some celebrate and some don't. Sometimes stuff happens on our birthdays ...
HippieChick58 comments on Sep 12, 2018:
In 1977, on my 19th birthday I was in Army Basic Training at Ft. Jackson, SC. That was the day we had gas chamber training... Yes I had to go in the gas chamber, take off my mask, give my Drill Sergeant my name, rank, and serial number, and then I could run out of the chamber and barf my lunch. My grandfather got his first great grandchild on his birthday. And my middle daughter was born on my mom's birthday which was special to me. My mom died when I was 14. Two of my sisters had given their daughters my mom's middle name. (Mom was Minnie Mae, no one in this generation was going to name a girl Minnie.) I thought I one upped my sisters by my daughter arriving on her birthday, not like I had much influence over it.

Seriously? I can still chat with my ex. Last time I saw him was a family birthday celebration we chatted about a book I was reading and some memories of the kids. BUT we hit the limit of our endurance. Day to day we did not do so good, he wasn't interested in anything besides his xian website. And he watches FAUX news. I knew I had to divorce him when I was watching SVU and trying to figure out how I could make it look like an accident.
Plain and simple.

While in your teens did you see your current age as old?
HippieChick58 comments on Sep 11, 2018:
When I was a teen most adults I knew were either in their 40s or in their 70s. I don't have any memories of thinking anyone old. I am mother to someone who is 30, and 33, and 26. And grandmother to two under 2. Do I feel old, sometimes. I have some aches and pains now and the floor seems so low and so hard to gracefully get off of. I'm working on that though. I have sorta retired and I'm using this time to get more exercise and into better health. I don't mind being "old" I just don't want to be decrepit.

The author has been in human resources forever, and has written this blog for over 10 years. She has some great stuff. My solution to job stress is not for everyone. I decided to retire. Yes, kinda early. I may look for a job in a few months but no more 40+ hour weeks and high stress. I am fortunate that I can make those choices.

Is there one that got away for you?
HippieChick58 comments on Sep 10, 2018:
I dunno that I'd say he "got away" more like he stayed away. He lived in CA and was supposed to move to Omaha. Everyone said moving would be a good step, including his Mom. I gave him some financial assistance to move. And then Mom didn't feel so well, and then his car was hit and totalled, or so he said. When it was good it was soooo very very good. My heart was broken, my job was ending, and I had to move. It was a really hard time. I found a new job really quickly, heard from him once more 2 years later when I moved into the house I'm in now. Which is why I will never again do long distance. With interest rates what they are I figure he owes me around $10,000 now.

HippieChick58 comments on Sep 9, 2018:
My ex made a damn good income, and his family was more than comfortable. Money cannot buy happiness. Ex was not a good listener, good helper, he had a hobby that was his passion and he was condescending as hell. For many years he did his best to avoid our teenaged kids. He was on the surface a "good provider" but he was/is a sad person. Since we divorced I've been more stressed over money, but had far more peace than I did when I was married. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RMuDRBxodlM

Who is Zina Bash? John's wife revealed after being accused of white supremacy at Kavanaugh's hearing...
HippieChick58 comments on Sep 9, 2018:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OK_(gesture) Alt-right The OK hand gesture has been associated with Trump supporters and the alt-right at least as far back as early 2015.[10] In February of 2017, users on the anonymous imageboard /pol/ of 4chan set out on a prank to convince mainstream media outlets that the OK hand gesture had been hijacked for use by white supremacists to signal one another publicly.[11] The pranksters claimed that the three upward fingers of the OK hand sign represented the letter “W” while the circle formed by joining of the index finger to the thumb leading down the arm represented the letter "P". The acronym formed by "W" and "P" was asserted to be shorthand for “White Power.” The original thread produced infographics explaining this usage concisely, which were subsequently spread to many different media outlets according to the Anti-Defamation League (ADL). The hoax began to gain traction when media outlets began reporting on the usage of the OK gesture as if it were, in fact, being used as a white supremacist hand gesture.[12] Most of these media outlets have since recanted their statements, citing the official response from the ADL.[citation needed] The ADL has confirmed that the OK gesture is not a white supremacist hand sign.[13] However, while the "OK" sign as a specific white power symbol was found to be a 4chan prank, it has been used as a gesture of identification among members of the white nationalist alt-right movement.[14] When asked about use of the "OK" sign, Right wing celebrity Lauren Southern said, “We just say ‘do the thing’ and everyone knows what you're talking about.” She linked use of the "FU" sign by the Alt-Right community to a gesture commonly used by United States President Donald Trump.[15] In July 2018, four Alabama police officers were suspended for being photographed making the hand gesture, since changing the uncertainty of the acceptable use of the sign.[16] Some Internet users have accused people in the political sphere of using the gesture.[17][18][19]

Modern slavery
HippieChick58 comments on Sep 9, 2018:
This is also why employer provided health care contributes to slavery. I hung on to my job because of health care benefit. They decided (and I agreed) that it wasn't a good fit and I was given a choice of resign or micromanaging and eventual termination, and I chose to resign. Whereas I'm very fortunate that I have some income independent of the workplace, I don't have affordable health care. I am saying I'm "retired" but lack of insurance is scary. Can you imagine how many small business would start up if everyone had healthcare? What a boost to the economy, but that might be (gasp) socialism or worse! To me it is just goo sense.

Three Words???
HippieChick58 comments on Sep 9, 2018:
What do you need me to do? What can I do for you? True story. A man's wife needed a kidney transplant. He joined a program to donate his kidney to a stranger so that a stranger's kidney would be donated to his wife. There were 12 people involved in this exchange, coordinated by several hospitals. The logistics make my head spin. But six kidney recipients and six donors, and countless hospital staff worked on this, so many factors of matching blood types and tiny details. Donating a kidney is hard, it is several weeks of recovery not to mention major surgery and the chance of dying. That says love louder than anything. I know about this because the man was my short term disability claim. He was willing to die for his wife. When I told him how cool I thought it was he said "how could I not?" Wow.
