Unpleasant Words and Money Spent

Project Reverb prompt: “Where did you spend your money this year?  Did you save it instead?  What, if anything, would you like to do with your finances this year?”

Did better at saving. It went into vacations, kid’s school, home improvement and volunteering. Nextspacecamp year it will be home improvement, moving and kid’s school. The very best money we have *ever* spent is sending the Bean to the small school she now attends. We like it so much we give extra.

 

Reverb14 prompt: “Biting back. Despite our usually sunny dispositions and dedication to the practice of ‘assuming positive intent,’ we all occasionally find ourselves having to deal with an incredibly unpleasant individual. While I’m sure you always handle it with the tact and finesse for which you’ve become so well known, I’m going to ask you to step outside yourself for just a moment. Think back to such a situation: if the gloves were off, how you really would have liked to have dealt with them?”

 

Wow…No. Not going to do this one. I’ve talked to a few trusted friends and said every thing I needed to about the difficulty. Pulled off my earrings and spewed. It helped a lot. But say those things publicly? Nope. Not gonna.

The thing I will say about something else. You have wives and daughters and mothers. One day what happened to me will happen to them. Will the men around your wives, daughters or mothers stand for what is right or will they turn away or even worse bow to pressure and lie?
