No matter what the day brings, deep down I know it really is a good day because I have the man of my dreams, a kitty who loves me, a roof over my head and I live in paradise.

"No man is worth your tears, but once you find one that is, he won't make you cry." - Anonymous


We've been going to a food bank on Saturday mornings. We started out by getting there at 11:30 a.m. The doors close at noon. Most of the time, we could sign up and into line very quickly and then out the doors and be home by noon.

The last couple of weeks we have been going earlier just to see if it made any difference on what food we received. Either way we still came home with good choices.

Coming earlier, I found I ran into more personalities.

In the program there is a slogan "Principles above personalities." I do the best I can to stick with the principles but it sure is hard when there are personalities everywhere.

This morning there was a blow up because one gentleman on a regular basis attempts to be at the head of the line regardless of what time he arrives. The rules are we cannot begin to line up until 9 a.m. Plus - once in line; you need to stay there or lose your place and you go to the end of the line. Easy enough but there are folks who think and act otherwise.

This morning there were quite a few personalities and statements of "This is it; I'm not going to come here anymore." Well, okay.

For me, I wasn't quite awake when we left for the food bank and I forgot to take my morning medications and my morning insulin. This did not help my situation at all.

This is why I am glad I wear a hat. I can tip my head just right and all I see of people is from their hips down.

I found in this situation it was best I mind my own business and to keep my mouth shut.

I did advise Michael I wanted to come later in the morning to bypass all of this turmoil. He could go either way but is willing to arrive on my time.

This is one of the things I am finding out about me is that I have a certain morning ritual I need to follow before going out into the world. Every time I have changed the routine, I end up feeling fussy and irritable.

Oh well, so I'm a fussy old lady.

The other thing I find that puts me on edge, medication or otherwise, is the loudness of people speaking. It feels like everyone is talking louder to be heard over someone else and so the volume keeps rising. I definitely need to get out my ear plugs.

Back home, Michael and I have been nibbling on the veggies and fruits as we prep them for the fridge. So far I have had: A tomato, jicama, hummus and crackers, an apple, and several strawberries. It is a good snack. I feel almost ready for my nap.

I hope everyone's weekend has gotten off to a good start.
