HO HO HO ------ CHRISTMAS
HA HA HAPPY DAYS
As usual, I have not kept up with my blogging, I do believe now the old adage that the older you get, the faster time seems to go.....so I am no longer going to apologize to the universe for being lax at keeping up my online diary; this blog!!
And even though I write, I sure don't believe that anyone reads it, but I do it because it is cathartic for the soul to periodically unburden and share thoughts and ideas and experiences. Just send them out to the universe: after all one never knows.........
Part of the reason for my silence is that last June, I acquired a roommate: well actually he acquired me (since we are living in his (now OUR) apartment). June this year marked nearly a year of first casual, then more serious dating!
And although living together is not exactly something to celebrate, for most seniors on fixed incomes it is more practical considering a more permanent commitment is punished by the government via losing a good chunk of your Social Security benefits - not something most of us want to lose!! (Don't think anyone would!!!).
Anyway, as I have been stubborn and independent all my life, despite numerous attempts to ...meld (as it were) and be happy with a significant other over the long term has not been something that I have been very good at: in fact I sucked at it.. So this new situation was a bit intimidating to say the least!
But I am happy and contented..... and happy that I didn't give up the dream of finding someone with whom I was simpatico! And (I hope) he feels the same way.
AIN'T LIFE GRAND!!! (Thank you Lord)
