You know how buses have that door on the side outside to put luggage? Normally the driver loads it for me but this driver unlocked it so I can do it myself. I was struggling with the door, I could pull it out but I couldn't get it to go up. I have skinny noodle arms with no strength as well.

We camp 6 months out of the year. Its a big development. The "clique" I blended into is pretty basic, retired women. One woman who would claim to be my best friend constantly puts me down. I'm so fed up with it. I HAVE LEARNED TO HATE CAMPING. My husband won't give it up. I hate nearly every minute I'm there.

This same "family" would go up to their camp on the lake every summer and invite everyone they know (friend, family, and practically foes)...but *I* would never get an invite. My husband, kids and I lived literally 30 minutes from this camp,... read more
A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects..
Might as well rename this place "United Prisons of America", run by "We the police". I'm so f***ing sick of feeling like I'm already a prisoner in my own home. You can't do anything without the state breathing down your neck. Spent so much time "liberating" the near east, forgot to leave some for the folks back at home!
