Stealing great ideas...

spacefem had a big birthday this week and, to celebrate, she asked her LJ friends to submit questions she could write about in her journal. First of all, this is a fabulous idea in so many ways. Warning: You will see this request in my own journal in March of 2021 so you might start thinking now. Also, if you want to practice with a question or two ahead of time, even now, feel free.

I submitted a question and then siglinde99 decided to take that same question and use it for an entry herself which was wonderful! So... I thought maybe others might as well.

I'd like you to write about finances when you were growing up. Did you have an allowance? Was it strict or did you also get extra money for stuff you wanted? How aware of your family's finances were you? Did your friends' families have more or less money than yours or did you not even care enough to notice? Did you get a job when first you could? Stuff like that.

I've written about my experiences here and there, but am not sure I've put them all in one place so that's on the agenda for today.

Along with another LJ inspired task. msconduct had the greatest idea yet. I'm going to stack my new yarn onto one (or two) of the hallway shelves - yarn as decoration! Plus easy to pick out colors. So many good reasons to do this. I have no idea why it didn't occur to me.

I've been writing a journal on LJ since forever. I've said it before and I'll say it again, the friends I have made here have absolutely made my life richer and more interesting and more fun and still do so all these years later. Every. Single. Day.

I am grateful.

I am not grateful to relay the sad news that my boyfriend was missing this morning. He maybe took an extra long weekend. But, he could have left me a note, don't you think?? I think.

In good news, this morning, Biggie finally showed me how to cut his nails. I have holding him under my arm and grasping one paw then the other to clip. It's always a struggle. But, this morning, we struggled so that he was lying on the couch on his side and, in that position, he gave me not even the slightest pushback! I'm so sorry, Biggie. I wish I had known sooner. But, I know now. No more struggles. And you will still get treats, I promise.

Another long sleeve weather day here - probably the last until October. I plan to enjoy it.

    The longer yesterday got, the less breath I had. When I can't get enough air, I just feel like crap. I finally went to bed early in hopes the crappy…

    Swimming was wonderful. I did 1,700 yards and it felt so good. My arms are tired and my lungs are telling that they are not up for more than once a…
