I try to, Cooking Goddess. I try to become acquainted with the classmates but they are always interested to the boys and the Facebooks and they do not seem to be very serious about this education. They do not like my music, and I do not like their music either.

They ask the strange questions of why I can not go out to socialize. I explain I must assist to DA and they ask me of why I care of an old woman. They become very irritated when I will not let them ride in my Joy. They say to put away DA to a nursing place. I have no more of dealings with them. I am nice and polite with them, but that is enough for me.

Gwen is the dearest friend, and many in our community like me, and I like them. But they are all older from me. Mamma says I am in the time of life when I have these responsibilities and this socializing must come later. I have to put DA always first and I always do so.

I owe my Mamma and Papa the obligation of to attend to DA always and to do my duty to her well. I also owe my parents to try to make the best of grades. I owe to myself to always do my very best in everything as I can.

I hope I have explained this well? I am attempting to let you know of my life.

Your friend,
~Cat

Cat, you have explained the difficulty very well. I hope you find some young people whose priorities are closer to your own. I understand that you're busy but it's also important to have real-life friends.

What year are you in at school? Freshman? Junior? Maybe as time goes on, and the classes are more specific to your major, you will find people who take their education more seriously.

Cat,

I have the utmost respect for you in your caring for DA. I take care of those older people who have been put in a nursing home. I try to make their days filled with joy and happiness and hope I help to not make them feel lonely and set aside. I am so very sorry you have not met anyone in real life who admire and respect you for what you are doing. We need more people like you!

I have all of Mom's jewelry, and upon cleaning found a lovely silver bracelet that she'd jerryrigged with pieces of wire where the jump rings should be. I removed the wire and replaced with cut down jump rings. The bracelet is closed with a magnet, strangest thing ever, but I fixed it.

Suddenly, I discovered the bracelet was missing! Huh. I tracked around the house and gardens, everywhere I'd been, no bracelet. Then an "aha" moment, I looked, and it was in the dog food bag!

Good catch. Makes you wonder how much jewelry might have been lost in a bag of kibble.

I'm sitting here watching TV, waiting for a steak to thaw and noticing the lack of posting on this forum lately...

I took the day off, guess the only thing I noticed was how much faster the day goes by when I take it off!

Almost got the dining room table cleaned off so it might be useable at some time.

I notice that too, seems like wasting time takes more of an effort these days!

It always slows down when the kids go back to school. Folks now have large amounts of time in which to accomplish something.
