I am feeling rather pleased with myself today. I have learned to FINALLY say NO! and stick to it. The last few years I have found that I often say "YES" to people and regret it immediately. Mostly because I never wanted to do whatever was asked nor did I have the time. I just couldn't say "NO". Most requests are because someone is in a bind and needs someone else to get them out of it by helping some way or other. I understand that. I am sure I have been on the receiving end of that many times in 58 years BUT I don't want to do that anymore unless I sincerely want to help and I have the time to do so.
YES, I said "NO" because to say "YES" would have taken up my time and energy and put me somewhere I did not want to be and I feel great about it.
Am I a late bloomer here or is this what happens to everyone when they reach their 'senior' years? Don't you hate the word, 'senior'. It makes me feel like I should plant the rocker on the porch and kick back. I am SO NOT THERE yet. I did kind of like getting a discount at the show last night, though. My husband would never let a 'senior discount' go by without taking advantage of it and he's younger than me. Funny! I don't think we ever feel older than 30.
This weekend I am caring for Buddy & Chase. I love these two guys. They keep you busy, that's for sure.
