I will soon write part 2 about my summer vacation, but if I’m going to stay on schedule, I need to post this next. My last week of August will be filled with fun days away from home.
This category – Life in General – is probably one I’ve used the most. If it doesn’t fit into another category, this is the one I use. So as with the other “Fifth Year” posts, here are some of my older posts in this category.
If you’ve known me outside of Retired Introvert, you know my hair has always been an issue for me. I guess I’m like everyone else; I want what I don’t have. I don’t have smooth, silky hair. Mine is frizzy which is exacerbated by the amount of hair I have and humidity. For more, read about My Lifelong Battle with My Hair. (Some changes were made to my blog page so the comments might not make sense anymore. Sorry.)
A few years ago, I finally decided to stop coloring my hair. I’d thought about it for a while, and always suspected that underneath the color, it was pretty gray. And I was right. But I’ve never regretted letting it go natural. I’m amazed at how many compliments I get on the color. I’ve Become a Gray Hair.
Yes, I had to write about things during the pandemic. It was such a strange time and hopefully, we’ll never have to go through it again. I’m saying that as though it were over, and in reality, it is not.
Anyway, I wrote a few posts about adapting and what I’ve learned.
Some posts are about how I’m feeling about something. For instance, should I feel guilty because I have someone clean my house? Am I having a blah day? Why can’t I sleep better?
Then there are posts where I have an opinion to share. I don’t get much into politics. Recently, I almost wrote something about gun violence. I had it all written in my head and then Tim thought I shouldn’t write it. There are too many opinions and we’re all tired of reading and hearing them. But there are a few things I’ve written about.
Question for Today
At some point, as it seemed I was asking a lot of questions with my posts, I decided to call them Question for Today. Here are some of my favorites:
- Have We Become Too Casual?
- Are Open Floor Plans on the Way Out?
- Do You Use Your Good China?
- Can We Be Too Sentimental?
Hope you find something here you haven’t read before and can enjoy it!! Thanks for reading.
