I read that of the $2 Billion raised with Go Fund Me campaigns, about $930 million of that was for medical bills. That makes Go Fund Me one of the largest insurers in the USA. Nothing against Go Fund Me, but there is something very, very wrong about that.

Sometimes I can tell when you linger on the phone when there's really nothing else to say. Sometimes I can tell other ways. A look. A gesture. That smile. It's okay. I get it. I feel the same way. It's only heartwrenching when I think about it. So I try not to.

I have a family member whose in-laws house burnt to the ground. She started a GFM for them and posted it on Facebook. Literally NO ONE donated. Probably because people weren't entirely confident that she'd give them the money (including us). She's asked us for money several times for food or gas, and then like a week or so later, her dh posts a picture on FB of something expensive they bought. They'll go on an expensive trip and then a month later ask for money. Some people just can't be trusted. Shame, because her in-laws really needed the help.

I got a FB mssg from an old friend, and it made my day. She said that she visited a boy we grew up with, and he told her that he always thought I was the prettiest girl in school. I graduated in '87, so I haven't heard that in a while! (BTW, he is gay, so it's not like he was ever interested in me) What I would never tell anyone IRL is- it's true. I was the prettiest girl in school. No one would know it now though! Age is the great equalizer among women!

In response to a confession. The woman was kinda weird, too. I was happy to move out of there.

A woman I rented a room from 4 years ago said that Amazon recently sent something to me to her address. She asked for a forwarding address. Why would Amazon do that? I don't have my old address anywhere in my account. Seems fishy. Has this happened to anyone?

Friends invited us to stop by their beach house today when they heard we were going to be in the area, and said they were going to take their boat out to watch the sunset. We had a great time with them and meeting their other friends who were visiting from the city. When we were getting ready to go out on the boat, I told the friends to bring hoodies, sweaters, blankets, whatever. The city slickers were like, "What?! No way, it's 90 degrees out!" I told them it gets really cold on the water, and they'd regret not having something to keep warm. They blew me off. Pretty much as soon as we set out, you could see everyone getting goosebumps, and then fully shivering when we picked up speed. Fortunately our hosts had plenty of blankets onboard, but I was just shaking my head.

I used to have a friend who was late to everything (work, dates, parties, everything). Our friendship was over after we were supposed to meet at the movies, and she was an HOUR late. She got super mad at me because I didn't wait for her in the lobby and went into the movie without her (I'd already purchased my ticket). She just could not wrap her brain around the fact that SHE was the selfish one for expecting me to wait and miss a movie I'd paid to see.

Getting my first eye done tomorrow, the ICL procedure. Omg I can't wait. 30 years of contacts and thick heavy glasses every night. Bu-bye!

In response to a confession. So true. It takes way more effort (sensible affordable consistent and conscious birth control) to NOT have kids than to have them. Almost every family I know has an “accident” kid.
