Journal entry 3/6/16 + 2

I was on 'vacation' on Sunday and have just now returned to the 'real' world.

I decided that in this year of treating myself that I would rent a house on the beach and invite my friend whom I have known since I was 4 - what a great idea!

Well, first the House was actually 10 blocks from the beach
Second - my friend and I have very little in common anymore - in fact, I found her to be quite opinionated and demanding.

She spent the entire weekend on facebook looking up political stuff and talking, talking, talking.

I am rather a quiet person and have no problem just sitting and relaxing.

Also, I really wanted to spend some time on the beach - turns out she didn't  - she wanted to go shopping

Perhaps next time I will just take Trixy and spend a great day at the beach!

Is there something wrong with me? I have been on my own for all but 7 years of my life and I guess I am very tried in my ways.  Trixy and I had a great time just relaxing!!!!

Live and learn!


  1. I'm going to email you my response :-)

  2. Not all of us girls have the same interests. I like relaxing at home once in a while, but when I'm out and about I want to do things, go places, shop.

  3. I think if we are growing and discovering new truths about ourselves as we age; not only is that right and perfectly normal -- it also stands to reason that we might "outgrow" those who have been in our lives; regardless of the time. Especially if they are not growing and maturing themselves. Quite honestly that would have annoyed me too because it is too Singular!! Being interested in politics and having opinions about the state of the world is important; but should not be all encompassing. Like step away from the computer and go breathe the fresh air for a spell! Same with shopping too much -- there's a whole world out there!! Go discover it!!
    I think as we get older, we just become better at filter out whatever kind of "noise" we can do without. :)
