It’s all about independence. And (as usual) Attitude.

I’m deadlining this week and into next. So a couple of blog entries I’ve been noodling may have to wait. One was to be about attitudes of independence. Rather than making you wait, then drowning you in prose, I thought it might brighten your day (and seriously compress your reading time!) to have the great links I planned to build the story around.

Here goes:


And I really mean cheers. I aim not to whine too much on this blog. But when I do, you respond most amazingly. You lifted me out of the dumps big time. The variety, speed, creativity, generosity, kindness, and in one notable case the sheer, butt-stubbornness of the help people offered was remarkable.

    It’s called separation of work responsibilities

    You write, we read
    You whine and we provide care and support

    LOL, MS Jordan … you sure do.

    But let’s all hope whining doesn’t become a regular part of my job description, okay? If it did, your part of the job might have to become “bash Claire over the head with a big stick.”

    I doubt that would be fun for any of us.

    If life hands you a tree, get a chainsaw and make firewood. I can’t picture handling that any other way. When a downburst blew away Dad’s carport years ago, toppled a couple of trees, and blew the shed into a different county, we took a couple of days, cleaned it up and moved on. Made firewood, disassembled the carport remains which became most of the new shed, etc. Easy.

    I guess they were supposed to sue their neighbors, call the cops, the EPA, the tree huggers etc to get the tree moved and compensated. Sounds like these people are the kind I’d like for neighbors.

    Hopefully my browser doesn’t crash with all these new open tabs… 😉

    In the middle of Weinerblitzing, I happened to comment that the best place for Huma to be was where she was, under Hillary’s wing ~ couldn’t have had a better mentor/role model at the time, for those kind of circumstances……As for the rest of the article, it could have been 3/4 shorter by simply saying people shouldn’t give other peoples’ opinions (of them) so much credence…..
