      How to control my temper, when a stupid woman with a pile of kids, first tries to back into me. Then tries to head me off at the Checkout. (She then drops a tray of eggs ) Tells me I am paying for them. Told her where to go, get to another Store and the big horrible looking thing has pinched my park. The one I had been eyeing up for ages, waiting for the traffic to abate to get in there.  Christmas I am over the whole Commerciality.

    If you think it can't get worst, you probably lack imagination.

    Beaut. I learnt the true meaning of 'going postal', and that Mike Patton is in Mr Bungle.

    More mundane, but nevertheless interesting tongue

    Hmmm....It's only 10:30 in the morning, but I've already learned that there really isn't any stress if you don't give a shit.  Does that count?  lol

    I think that's more a goal rather than a fact.

    Ok how about this then.  I was quickly reminded this morning that drinking way too much Jack Daniels makes you feel like shit in the morning.

    I learned that my granddaughter can't handle the sight of blood. She cut her finger on a cookie cutter and fainted and hit her head on the wall. Who knew. Now she is resting with a bump on her head.

    I learned very recently that no matter how careful you are with yourself, things beyond our control happen when you least expect them.

    Last December 20, a Sunday, I was singing with my parish choir for the midnight mass when my left arm grew prickly numb. I thought of finishing the song but a sort of electric current crawled from my arm up to my left chest.  I decided to stop, took a seat, and massaged my arm, not wanting to stir attention.

    But the sensation was there, very intimidating. For a split seconds I panicked, but somehow I was relieved by my fellow choir members after the song. After a good rest, I proceeded home, but the attack came again before we even reached the church door.

    I landed in our local hospital. For the first time, I learned I have non-specific heart condition- heart not bad but not also good. I'm just lucky I was with friends in church. Take care fellow hubbers! Merry Christmas!

    I learned today that the earthbag walls I restacked after the last near-hurricane winds are a lot sturdier.  At least they seem to be holding up so far, and those winds today/tonight are sumpin' else! big_smile
