I Feel No Need to be Needed!!

Golly. I am...well, let's just say over sixty...oh what the heck...I'm 64. Oops! 63! Age doesn't matter to me and I always have to subtract to figure it out!! Why clog the memory banks with things you can figure out!

I no longer feel the need in my life to feel I am needed. But let me walk into work and kaboom. I am the most needed person around.

Where is? Can you? Did we? Can you? How long ago? Can you? Would you? Can you? Do you remember? Can you?  Get the picture? Not only do they want the answer, the next is always can you.

Now if I remember long ago, and dig deep in the crevices of my  mind, I think I started to work to get away from kids. Kids that were always asking questions. Kids that always needed me in some way and in reality THEY NEEDED to learn to do things for themselves. But now...I have inherited a brood of kids!! Only they aren't 4, 5 or 6 years old, they are 40, 50 and 60 years old!! I can see where the younger ones were easier to deal with. But I am at least needed, and I guess I would really miss it if I walked in and they really didn't need me. So, let them all come round beckoning for one thing or another. I guess I love it in a strange sort of way..........I don't want to think on that statement too long.

Rain. Damp and humid here. It is supposed to rain big time later tonight. We can't really say when, depends on which TV station you are watching. So I am anxiously awaiting tonight to see who is really right. But they all agree a wash out tomorrow!!

Not much going on today. But that is OK. I don't mind a quiet day here and there!!

I did get a LO done of Gloria's son-in-law. I like it. It is a little different than my usual style but I am trying to jump out of my box a little and keep my style in flux doing things a little different each time. I just feel in a rut right now so that is what I have decided to do. If that didn't make any sense when you read it don't reread it. It didn't make sense to me either. Oh well. Hope you know what I meant!

So that is about it for today. I think I will look for something to keep me busy for the next hour and a half. I think I know what it will be. I have a LO in the works so I want to look for some stuff to finish it!

Enjoy your night.

You make it look so effortless. Beautiful LO!

As for being needed ... oh man, where to start. Even though they are little it still can take a toll.

Terry said...

Everyone needs to be needed. :)

I agree with Terry - everyone needs to be needed!

Great LO! What a nice summery color combo for the pictures.

Love the layout. The colors are great and I really really like the fonts.
While I may like the fact that I am needed... sometimes I just need some quiet me time!
You can send rain my way!
