Brunch, Bricks, and Being Quiet

I'm beginning to read a ton of blasphemy about 2016. People from Denver to Delaware declaring it was the "Worst Year Ever"...Really?
I even read yesterday that 2016 is the "Florida" of years,,bahaha Sorry Pensacola.
Perhaps because it's a Presidential election year?..we'll get to That in another blog..
2016 has been pretty provisional to me and Mr. P. I've got the photos on my phone to scroll through at a moments notice, if I need a pick me up on a Monday,, or Tuesday. We actually made plans, and got out of Port Washington. We pummeled our home inside out and turned a 2 family into one. And we forged forward for our future and said goodbye to the past. Just 2 people and our pets. We fled from forced conversation and spent time with real friends 
2014, 2015? Hasta la Vista. 
What word stands out for me, that's means 2016?
Quiet.
I never before have understood how much that word means to me. Or how much I value it. You hear, "Be Quiet" all time as a toddler, into your teens. And I'm beginning to think in adulthood we should say it more: To each other.
Quiet means to me, after a day of hearing Nothing but people talk and ask me questions, I can come home and say Nothing. Quiet means to me we don't have to fill the space. Quiet also means to me that I don't have to ask you questions at a firing squad pace, or get in your personal space. Quiet also means I may not even have the music on. We've also gotten into a nice little Friday night noshing at home routine.
P and I recently came to the conclusion that we just want a quiet life.
We don't care bout the money we make or the opinions of the minions.
We are on a different path, and that may Not jive with Your math. Too many times people compare the lives of others to their own. Did you ever think you were meant for something Better? We have.
 I was never good at math anyway. I'd rather use my right brain and take the trail less traveled.  
And if you don't like the sounds of that, you can just,
Be Quiet.

BOO!. And my lack of Blogging

Tis the season..and Just when I think I can silently creep away(pun Intended)
Several people bring up to me the fact that I haven't posted in quite some time.
Damn. Caught red handled. What I wasn't prepared for, was people thinking that I was in some kind of,, funk? Or perhap I've run out of stories,,
We haven't even Gotten to the guy I used to date that insisted on wearing 2,, 2 pairs of underwear at one time!!..bygones.or that fact that his Father got some secret pleasure by trapping rabbits in the yard, then coming home at night to chop their heads off..It ended soon after I learned That.. (I told you I wasn't out of stories)
 
 1. When I go on a hiatus, theres usually SO much to blog about going on,, I just have to let it steep.
I have to marinade about the topic, how it affects Me, and all of you. And maybe if you too, have  run into the situation.(see how nice I am, considering the reader?!)
 
2. 1st thing you should have learned by reading This Blog, is everyone, everywhere, takes everything Personally. So it goes,, Said thing happens. I'm usually horrified, and want to Share. Then said Person gets pissed and gets on My case. There is a unwarranted amount of animosity that puts on the "shot caller", or someone that continues to point out the obvious. I can't tell you how many times people have assumed I'm a hateful person , or miserable. Remember the old adage about when you Assume?
Yeah,, You make an ass out of you, Not Me.
 
3. It's exhausting being This brilliant..and maybe having the Balls to say what I do.
I've had so many people come to me with topics and things that have happened to them they think I should cover. My blog here is an open book, and I've offered the pages up to be a ghost(pun again) writer. Apparently, they're still in shackles about weather or not they're up to Share.
 
So those of you that have stayed with me, Thank you.
It can be fun, and funny, and always sassy, speaking to you on the things that affect us all.
But it can also be stressful, hurtful to personal relationships, and anxiety inducing.
 
But from Day 1, I've always said, I mean what I say, I say what I mean, but I don't ever say it Mean.
