Some Things I Know For Sure

We, as individuals, seem to have learned nothing from this national financial crisis. Supposedly, everyone from the middle class and below is struggling to make it financially, yet this year's Black Friday sales set records. I've seen pictures and videos of folks with handfuls of cash and they're out at Walmart, Target, Best Buy, K-mart and all the other big box stores, buying stuff...and more stuff. Yet, most of them applaud the folks in power when they advocate cut, cut, cut spending. Just sayin'

I have come to the conclusion that people who blame others for their feelings, actions, anger, sadness, depression, etc., often merely do not want to take personal responsibility.

There should be a statute of limitations on blaming your parents for the things you do as an adult.

Children would be better off if we taught them how to fail as well as succeed.

Clearing clutter from my house is hard, but it is good for my soul.

Toilet paper brands matter. The cheapest brands are the scratchiest, crumbliest and least absorbent (do I have to draw you a verbal picture?). Don't skimp.

Dear Terri,
Coincidentally, earlier in the week a frined of ours mailed us a link to an article on the Huffington Post website. That article discusses some of the same points you raise in this post, and you might be interested in reading it. Here is the link.

I always enjoy reading your posts. Thank you for writing them.
