Ragan and I had a nice discussion while driving the other day....

(R) "Mom?"

(me) "Uh huh?"

(R) "Danielle's mom asked me if you like to party."

(me) [chuckle] "Oh ya? What did you tell her?"

(R) [eye roll] "I told her you didn't. Duh."

(me) "That's good."

(R) [overly concerned] "'d like her. Miss Debra is really fun."

(me) "I'm sure she is.....apparently she likes to party." [laughing]

(R) "SERIOUSLY......Mom. I think you need to find some friends."

(me) [confused] "I have plenty of friends. Why do you think  need more?"

(R) "You never do anything! What are you going to do when I move out in a few months???"

(me) "Well......anything I want. I don't know yet. I'm certainly not going to start partying. Unless it's a party at the Goodwill store!" [laughing]

(R) "I'm just worried that you're going to be  [pause]  all.alone."

(me) [sigh]"I don't mind being alone. Really. I have a lot of things that I enjoy doing. Maybe I can go on some track trips with Daddy. Or....something."

(R) "Mom.  I'm serious. You need to do something with yourself. You just can't spend all your extra time at the Goodwill store. 'Cuz seriously, I don't want to see you on an episode of Hoarders."


Apparently, Ragan feels I am one Goodwill trip from going bat.crap.crazy.

 Especially without the positive influence of her company and loving attention.

For all I know, she is planning an intervention as I type.

I suppose I better start thinking of some things I can do with myself once she's flown the coop.

Just in case she ever brings it up again.

But I'll start by jumping back on the crazy train.
Evidently, Ragan thinks I never jumped off.

Ha! You crack me up!
I like my own company. Is that over the edge odd! I can stay as long as I want, touch every little thing, Check it all out without anyone following me around and wondering when we're going to go to a "real" store. Lol
But I guess you better find another hobby that won't land you on national TV!

LOL - too funny!! My kids thought that when I first left the school. And I thought I was having fun being ALONE - doing what I wanted instead of taking care of someone else. Enjoy it while it lasts! HUGS!!

that is so funny but sweet.... she must love you very much......

Lol! I guess she's just wondering how you will survive without her! I think kids forget that we existed before they came along, and we were just fine. I know I don't have enough hours in the day to do everything I want to do!

Are you a follower of the Rusty Thimble? She is such a sweet person. She is having a great giveaway that I would truly love to win. She would love to reach 1000 followers and I think she is like 27 shy. If you go over, become a follower and comment stating that I referred you, you get a chance to win and I get another chance. What do you say? Help out an old friend?
