I have had a few to drink and feeling a little to happy... Don't know whether I should be on or not, so if I make a few errs here or there, I apologise in advance.
How was your Eve?
Hi, I see you are still on...
You flatter me. (Don't stop...) Hey must go now. Need to have a shower so I smell nice before my next family squabble...
You have yourself a good eve. And a fab new year. Chat later. Ciao
Your life sounds like mine. I have plenty of family. Lots, on both sides. And like you I say blood is thicker than water. But I can't rightly say we get along either. In fact Christmas day was chaotic. I am from an Italian background and they are one feisty bunch. We got into such a huff, that I honestly wished I lived on another planet. It's a shame I am old enough to know wishes don't really come true. The fact that I am 20yrs younger than you... (Ar, don't advertise. I hate to discuss my age) means that my friends are still around and some of them, are to be desired as well. Yet I hang in there. I find the more I help a friend or try to understand them, the more and the more emotional I expect them to be, the more I push them away. So honestly I spend more time talking and getting along with my on-line friends instead. They're not as judgemental. They don't care if I live in another country, or that I have black hair or that I am a little eccentric, or that I am only 5ft2.
Very philosophical. What about family and friends? Has your values changed on family and friendship?
Ok, just enjoy what ever it is you like doing. It was raining heavily here last night, so the New Years firewords were interupted and we ended up leaving early. We saw them whilst in the trian home. I am a little over New Years to be honest with you... I think it's age creeping up on me. Argh!
Thanks Jer. And I am just Mary. No short names, just that I am short so most of my closest friends and family call me little Mary. But Mary will do. (All that info wasn't necessary. What am I thinking? I am silly.) Never mind. What time is it there? Have you reached the New Year yet?
Yes, sometimes that happens. I have to admit, a lot of people on litnet like to go astray a bit and somethimes like to debate about the weirdest issues. Mind you, it can be funny at what things are being said, but if it bothers you, then all you can do is what you did. Just tell them to get beck on track. If the subject gets out of hand, the moderators put a stop to it... Sometimes one needs to be patient or just plain honest. You did the right thing though.
Sorry Jermac. I'm a little confused, with your last comment on my page, what thread?
No, probs, seems I'm not off to the in-laws for another hour or so. Thought I pop back on for a while.
