I felt like I had some loose ends to tie up after yesterday’s post. Or maybe it was just in my head. Either way, it seems like this is a good time to throw out a few odds and ends about various things.
Also, don’t miss the giveaway/review link at the end.
1. I don’t know why I chose thirty-three as an ideal age to get married on yesterday’s post. Maybe because I know so many single women who hit thirty and panic as if time is running out. And I’m trying to singlehandedly change that perception.
So, thirty-three might be the right age for some people and twenty-four might be the right age for someone else. I’m just a believer in having a little time to get to know who you are before you get married. And that may take some of us a little longer than it does others because we are slow learners. I say this as a slow learner who had to continue to learn a lot about myself and being unselfish long after I got married at twenty-six.
In fact, I am still learning.
And that is my soap box for today.
2. Hazel says you need to be careful about who you marry because you could wind up married to a man who’s about as useful as a pocket on the back of a shirt.
Also, Hazel is on her way out. But I bet she shows up again before flu/cold season is over because I have a tendency to get the bronchitis when my immunity is down.
3. Caroline’s shirt in the picture yesterday came from Zara. If you don’t have a Zara near you, then I am so sorry because you can’t buy their stuff online and they have some really, really cute things for grown-ups and kids.
4. I had an epiphany the other night. I should state that it was while I was in lying in bed after a heavy dose of prescription cough medicine.
People don’t play enough card games anymore. Or maybe it’s just the people I’m around that don’t play enough cards. Or Trivial Pursuit. Or whatever.
I want to bring the game night back. I dream of a future filled with holidays where we all sit around and play games.
And if there is wagering involved, so be it.
5. I’m giving away two copies of Choosing To See by Mary Beth Chapman. I read the entire book in a little under two days and it is just so, so good. Click on over to my review page and leave a comment to enter.
Have a lovely day.
