A mixed bag, but at least it’s a Saturday

Well, sorry I can’t tell you how the movie “Chicken Little” was because I didn’t see it. We never made it there. Guess I can call him the V-Man for more reasons than just the vegetable growing! Anyway, enough of that for now. I'll come back to that subject a bit later.

It was a gorgeous, beautiful day yesterday. I did spend a little time outside but not very much between catching up with blogs and visiting. After saying that I prefer journal-type blogs (which I still do) I found an inspirational blog through
Anvilcloud (AC) the blog is Warrior Geezer So I’ll try to read that every day, too. I had just recently had a conversation with my son in which he said "Buddhism is the most evolved religion, even though it isn't really a religion." We discussed the fact that most other religions, or thought-beliefs, if you will, will self-destruct after a time. It was quite an interesting conversation! Two other conversations I need to have today will be interesting, too, but not as fun.

I love reading all of your blogs! Your writing gives me something to think about, things to hope for and even things to worry about as you write about your problems. Blogs have enriched my life in a way that books do not, simply because blogs are interactive and personal. A book can be very personal but (so far at least!) books are not interactive. I still like to read too, am reading “Children of the Night” by Dan Simmons. It’s a vampire story and quite good. It takes me a whole lot longer to get through a book than it used to, though.

Well ex-girlfriend called THREE times while I was at V-Man’s house. And one of the calls (picked up by his machine) was that she’d be seeing him on Sunday! Of course I had to ask about that because it’s been my understanding that their situation had petered out. He said they were just friends. OK, that plays with my head because WE are just friends! On the other hand, he does make it a habit to stay friends with his ex-girlfriends. After all he and I had been friends for years—and it was just friends until quite recently. Hmmm. I don’t know what to think here. My instinct is that he’s trying to have his cake and eat it too, wants to show her the wonders of drug-enhanced “sessions”. After all, she left him, not the other way around. But, to complicate matters (of course!) I’m not sure how I really feel about all of this and this new wrinkle. Do I still want a relationship? I hate this doubt and distrusting, it certainly injects an icky note into the whole thing. So he and I will need to have a longer conversation about it, soon.

And today is the day the neighbor woman said she and her husband would be over to pull the car up onto the lawn—despite my again stating that I don’t want it there. Another conversation.

I’m not looking forward to today, to tell you the truth. And there is a Fair Trade event in town that I want to go to. It starts this morning but I don’t want to miss those “conversations”. Well, actually, yes I do, but need to get some things settled first. The problem being that by the time I can get those settled, more or less, the event will probably be long over! Well, happy Saturday to you all!

Men, they are so confusing, aren't they?

As far as the whole moving the car bit, what is with that? Why are they so determined to ruin your lawn? Tell them to put it on their lawn if they want it moved so bad.

PBS: Man, my "red flags" went up as That Girl points out. I really hope you resolve this in your favor. And no, it isn't just limited to men. Women do this too. I've been there and it can be an unfair drain. So, my very best! What an interesting conversation with your son! You have a great site1!

I think your first instinct is probably right... if he stays "friends" with all his ex-girlfriends, then he can "easily explain" why they call. Ha! Maybe you two can "be friends" while you go find someone with less baggage.

V man has some explaining to do.

Be strong,tell your neighbors as "dl" said, on their lawn if it is affecting them so much.

I hope you get your two problems sorted to your satisfaction. I think V-man will be V-man, and you're either content with that or you aren't.

Hello PBS,

I enjoyed your blog.

I don't recall you asking for advice but you certainly opened yourself up to it. :)

My advice(which I don't always follow) is to try to state clearly and simply what you are experiencing TO YOUR PARTNER, not just to your blog. Or make sure that he is reading your blog. :)

See ya.
