Holly news, Sandra muse

Holly got her driver's license yesterday. Tomorrow she's babysitting, and she can drive herself.

Today I got a root canal. I'm not putting in a photo of that. On the way home I called Keith and thanked him for being able to afford that, and having insurance to cover most of it. I was able to go and get the painkillers and antibiotics without having to wait for Friday or having to go without groceries. Keith takes care of us, and that's a noble and wonderful thing.

When I met Keith he was unemployed and I was working in the profession of my plans and dreams. Then for a while I had a different job, but a good job, while he was working here and there for minimum wage. I was never worried about the future. He graduated from college at 29, finally, after starting and stopping and changing majors several times. All through there, I knew we would be okay, and today I could get $1000 worth of oral surgery and drugs without worrying. I feel fortunate and grateful. Also I'm in a little bit of pain, so I guess I'll take another of those dizzy-making pills.

I had lunch (fairly soft lunch, milkshake and the barbecue sandwich) with Dermod at Blake's and that was sweet and peaceful. I'm glad he shared his lunch break with me.

Marty's at the skate park. Kirby's playing World of Warcraft. I'm going to go back to working on a dress for Sadie/Beatrice.

My husband and I were talking along a similar line last night. A woman I don't know bought some used books from me at a moms' gathering recently. She didn't have any money with her so I said she could just mail it to me and I gave her my address. It wasn't very much money, $7.00, but she sent the check and a note of thanks for trusting her.

Anyway, all of the negative energy it takes to always be suspicious and distrustful just isn't worth it! I would rather go through life being positive and nice. If I get burned a couple of times, so be it. Just think how much nicer the world could be if everyone trusted a little more.

Contgratulations to Holly.

That's where I've put the irritating comments people had left here, and some responses to that negativity.

Maybe I'll disable anonymous posts, but on the other hand it's kind of amusing to see what kind of rudeness and ignorance people are willing to put in public when they can hide their faces.

I thought it was kinda irritating, especially "Who's going to go to the trouble to drive to New Mexico to do something anyway?"

There are already quite a few people in New Mexico, but none of them have done me any harm. I don't guess it's really worth the trouble to drive across town to "do something."

I'm not going to live in fear, and I don't need to host a bunch of negative comments. I could've just deleted them, but I put them where people could see them.

Hi, Sandra,

I remember when my now almost 22 year old got her license! What an exciting day.

Congratulations to Holly!
