I know I have been putting off working on my writing, because I was hoping to be typing on my new computer. I was so happy when my new computer arrived and it was going to be upgraded and returned the next day.
That day has passed beyond a week and my cousin (whom I had trusted before a few years ago. I paid him then as I did a month ago, and I am still without a computer.
Not answering his phone and I have lost count on the text and messages I sent him. I am about to call his mom and see if she heard from him, because my patience is running low.
There was a time I would have let this go and cross that person out of my life. Then they become passing friends and I am okay with that. Now that I am thinking about passing friends, I just remembered James.
He kept on acting as if he had a job and not slowing down. He would not take my advice, but when the government had your job closed. Okay, that should have opened your eyes and stritch out some of your savings, and when it became over three months it was time to start rethinking.
When his town started slowly reopening, I suggested he look for a temporary job, but he said “no.” His phone got cut off and I knew he was calling from his parents phone. I wasn’t calling him there and he didn’t understand why?
He forgot he once told me how his mother was so upset, because she wasn’t an operator. So out of respect for her, I haven’t called him, and since he lives out of state. We can’t even be passing friends and I am so grateful.
There are some things you should let go and there are some things you need to fight for and I am going to fight for my $325.00 computer that I paid for.
I wonder why people seem to take a nice and somewhat quiet person for granted? It’s an old saying, “it’s the quiet ones you have to look out for, because they’re like cats.” If you know anything about cats, then you will know they are sneaky animals, and you never know what they are going to do.
I guess that’s why I love cats. Some may think they don’t do anything, but if you like them. They will like you and always there to keep you company. They will play, but they don’t need your total attention all the time as a dog would. I am not going to go farther than that, because I REALLY do not like dogs.
I can’t believe I wrote five stories in two days while I was at work and could have written more, but my manager had a problem with me doing two things. Oh well, I am about to get to correcting my hand written words, and get back to my new crochet project.
Bye IV Now, LD*
