Re: What Would You Really Like for Your Next Birthday?

I would like to have a better relationship with my only child, and any relationship with her two beautiful daughters. Apparently, she's never forgiven me for divorcing her father in 1981. It's hard to know the exact reason(s) for our estrangement, because she flatly refuses to engage in discussion.

I put down my first trip to a beach, but, after thinking about it more. I too, would just like to have a decent part time job and nice employer and employees who make coming to work enjoyable. For 14 yrs. since my painful, long term marriage ended, all I have wanted is to have a part time office job. Either health, circumstances, old car, etc, etc, just kept things from happening, I realize I am no better off 14 yrs later. The jobs I have taken either took advantage of me as a worker (am a hard worker), worked with mean people, went through sexual harrassment more times than I care to think about, etc....Now that I have a bad back and other health issues, the future looks bleak. I try to be brave, but, It is depressing! K.S.

What I would really like for my next birthday is the chance to have someone take me (drive) to a beach for the first time in my life. I will be 61 and am afraid I will die before I ever get the chance to see one. Hoping it is everything I have dreamed of. I have buried my mom from cancer, my dad died 3 years prior to my mom, then I battled cancer at 56, a divorce after 32 years (25 of it marriage), one crappy job after another, that's not even a tip of the iceberg on things that have happened. I just want some rest and peace in my life! K.S.

I would like a new queen-size bed, firm mattress and box springs and yellow sheets and pillow cases for my birthday.  I have been sleeping on a double bed mattress and boxsprings encased in plastic zippered covers that are full of dead bed bugs since August of 2017.  It gives me the creeps.  Since the warmest part of the year is approaching, I dread the thought of continuing to sleep on plastic.

I look back on my almost 69 years of birthdays, and this one doesn't require a thing.  I have so much!  A great husband, two awesome kids, two beautiful grandaughters, five dogs, a house that is paid for, and so much more.  Not much money, but lots more that I'm grateful for.  If I could ask for a wish it would be that there would be no more abuse - not to kids or dogs or any animal.  My only wish is that I could do something to stop it.  Maybe, if I make it to heaven, I can help God take care of all the dogs.  That's my wish!

I so agree with the suggestions about de-cluttering. So many can use my unused pots and  pans, serving dishes, (many so large now that I don't cook for an entire family). clothes in good shape, clean linens, and so on.. I already bought myself a smaller set of good quality, stackable sauce-pans/saucepots that have lids.

 

From my children: a visit would be nice, and maybe a small potted kndoor plant.
