1. How many times have you moved?

2. Will this week be busy for you?

3. Do you have Mother's day plans yet?

I have one unmarried sister, she's never had kids so she's never experienced parenthood either. I think she'd chuckle at these "self reliant" claims, She lived at my parents' house through college and through 10 years of teaching school as it wasn't until our mother passed away that she thought about moving out. She's a responsible and capable woman but she's not there b/c she lives alone.

When you get a chance, could you translate that thought into English?  Thanks!

silly me.  I keep forgetting that failure to "catch a man" is only mockable when it's NOT a member of your family.  You and Molly really ought to send out a complete list of double standards that you guys operate by.  There's just too many to keep track of otherwise.

.  thats a state of dependency I never want to be in.  I've bern places, even recently, where I was driving and went for hours without seeing another vehicle.  Is rather not be stuck by the side of the road aIting for hours for someone to rescue me when I'm capable of  fixing the problem myself in twenty minutes.  Sure there are problems I can't handle, but changing a tire? Easy.

No, that was the post before this last one.  I quoted it specifically so that it would be clear which post made no sense.

It's always such a pleasure reading your posts first thing in the morning.  The lovely way you greet others just warms the cockles of my heart.

You do realize that this has nothing to do with why young women should live on their own for a time before tying themselves to anyone--man OR woman?  You DO realize this isn't about YOU at all?  Right?  Right?

It was only about me because she asked ME the question. SMH

Different strokes, We drove pretty close to across country once and while there were remote areas I can't say I ever felt "stranded". I'd fear mechanical failure or empty gas tank more as there have been times when we're driving on a quarter tank of gas and a sign will read 30-65 mi to next rest stop. But I've been lucky and I can think of only one time when I ran out of gas, I was returning home from an event in my late teens or early 20s and I swore I'd make it home, Well I didn't, Lol.

I think it stirs people up to read about lives so unrelated to their own.
