HUMP DAY.  It has been a strange week.  But at least its moving on.  I think it has been a bit stressful and we are working to get passed that.  Strange how life moves on - Your parents raise you, you leave home and then you return to raise them and take care of them.  I struggle with my parents issues.  My sister is in our home town and takes care of them now.  I think as things progress I will take a bigger position in their care giving.  

When I was younger I know that I was looked as "Sweet" and "Naive".  Well ok I was Naive - sweet not so much.  I think I stayed that way for a very long time.  At some point I learned that I had to stand up for myself that no one would do that for me.  But as I have gotten even old I have found that I need to find a delicate balance with being Nice and Strong.  I have been pretty lucky.

I am amazed these days the lack of respect any one gives to any one else.  I don't know if it is a southern thing or a proper thing.  But when we grew up we were taught to say Yes Ma'am, Yes Sir, Thank you and Your welcome.  I work with you people who don't know the first thing about that.  I see it every where.  Crazy.  Just a complete lack of disrespect.  I don't care if you like me or not - don't disrespect any one.
