HippieChick58 comments on Jul 19, 2018:
The Mantra of Motherhood: This too shall pass, I've used it for over 30 years. My other mantra is: Everything will be OK in the end. If it isn't OK, it isn't the end. And when I make phone calls for my job my mantra is: please go to voice mail.

Who are some famous people you wish would just go away?
HippieChick58 comments on Jul 19, 2018:
Jim Bakker and Tami Faye, or whoever Tami Faye's replacement was. Joel Osteen. All of the children of Billy Graham, especially his daughter Anne Graham Lotz. Definitely any Kardashian. I haven't figured out why they're famous. Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Ted Cruz, Paul Ryan, DT of course. McConnell, Huckabee Sr.

First of all, 6 years in the Army. I have taken classes from time to time since then, one class was targeted to moms with small children as I was at the time. When my middle daughter was headed for college we took a self defense class, she is her mother's daughter and her mouth can/did get her in trouble. Also, I read the best book ever, "The Gift of Fear" by Gavin DeBecker, he has such good advice including listening to your gut. Great read.
What is the most unusual pet you have had? Mine was an earthworm named Squiggly.
HippieChick58 comments on Jul 19, 2018:
I have a pet rock!! I won it from a radio station when I was in HS. That pet rock has traveled some miles. Geebus, I graduated in 1976 and I still have it. Don't do the math, it will make your brain burn and make me cry.

Marriage or Domestic Partners?
HippieChick58 comments on Jul 18, 2018:
I will never remarry because there would be negative financial repercussions. Why marry and lose money when I can shack up and keep all my benefits and have the benefit of having a partner. Not like we're going to make babies, even then it wouldn't matter. There is no stigma to unmarried parents anymore, and the fur babies don't give a darn.

HippieChick58 comments on Jul 18, 2018:
I was abused, and I was able to move on. Sometimes I feel the inner child crying, but I have learned to heal her. Having daughters was a great help, when the oldest got to the age was that the worst of the abuse happened I realized it wasn't my fault. Also living far away from my abusers helped, and limited contact and never alone with them when I did have to see them.

HippieChick58 comments on Jul 18, 2018:
I use tincture of ginger for heartburn. It works for me. I have chopped ginger in vodka in my pantry now. When I need to use it I will drain the ginger out. I used oil of cloves to numb a sore tooth so I could sleep. I got 5 hours sleep and a root canal the next day. Alternative medicine is simply what our foremothers used when they didn't have access to doctors. Might not be as potent as pharmaceuticals, but they're as safe if not safer, gentler, and cheaper. Just because it is old fashioned doesn't mean it doesn't work.

WHAT'S YOUR POSITION ON ABORTION ?
HippieChick58 comments on Jul 18, 2018:
My position on abortion is my body my choice. My first pregnancy was ended by abortion because the fetus had neural tube defects that were not compatible with life outside the womb and may have been threatening to my life. Yes I wanted a baby and I was heartbroken to end the pregnancy. And because I was so far along I had to go through labor and deliver that baby. When the baby was born there were more defects than they realized. The baby had anencephaly, spina bifida, front line didn't close, cleft lip and cleft palate. 20 years later the father of my children told those children he believed we made a mistake ending that pregnancy. WTF. Which is why we are no longer married. He was at the delivery, he saw the baby. I consider that a betrayal.

What is something you think everyone should do at least once in their lives?
HippieChick58 comments on Jul 17, 2018:
I think everyone should live in a different part of the country or world at least for a year. Your horizons will be changed forever. Everyone needs to get out of their "comfort zone" and learn how others live. Everyone needs to hold a tiny baby at least once. There is something so pure, so fragile, so precious and innocent about a baby. It can scare the shit out of you and also leave you in awe. I think everyone should stay up all night to witness the sunrise. At least once everyone needs to try something they didn't think they could do, especially if it scares them. It is amazing to find out that you can.

Seriously, I raised my kids in the church. They're all adults now, 26 to 33 years old. Two are flat out atheists, and one flies low cuz she likes to stay in Daddy's good graces. Raise them to think for themselves and they will figure it out. Their dad encouraged critical thinking but had a blind eye to the church, and he gradually morphed to totally brainwashed by the church. However, the kids are smarter than that.

In the rain, sleet, snow, AND hail. Seriously I walked 8 blocks to school. One year we had snow, then rain, then snow again, and I could walk on top of the snow for several blocks. I must have been about 8 at the time. We were a one car family, and dad the only driver. When he was working we walked everywhere.
