One of the questions in the meme going around asks you to name your biggest pet peeve. Thinking about that question led to the following Facebook statuses.

Yesterday: My biggest pet peeve: People who say, "Stop bringing up the past!" when they've neither apologized nor tried to right the wrong they committed. Even if you apologized, the wounds will take time to heal. Some wounds are deep enough to always affect the person you wounded, no matter how much time passes. Respect that and stop trying to shut the victim down just because you cannot face the reality of what you did.

Today: Don't use your wounds as an excuse to be rude or to harm others. Your pain didn't "make" you act that way; you chose that response. Get the help you need to learn how to choose better behavior.


Talk about pushing buttons! I had no idea that meme question would push any of mine. :-)


I feel odd, today. I am both bored and present at the same time, antsy and lazy at the same time. I want to get out of the house, but I don't feel like getting up from my seat on my body ball. I feel well-rested and tired, all at the same time. I don't know what's going on or how to fix it, so I am simply observing and rolling with it.

Maybe that walk to the post office would do me some good. There's a little girl in VA who would love the pink hat and scarf I made for her a couple of months ago.

Added 5:30PM - The walk to the post office helped. So did a snack of peanut butter crackers. So did 10 minutes of gentle stretching and ballet-like movement to my relaxation music. The ants in my pants are gone, and a gentle glow of contentment is left.
