Day 23: A family member you dislike.

This is mean and I won’t write about it.

What’s next on the list?

Day 24: Something you miss.

Hmmmm. Something, not someone? What thing do I miss?

We sold at least half of our stuff when we moved to Sechelt. We sold all of our stuff when we moved to Canada! I cannot think of one thing I miss. On the contrary, I continue to look around and see stuff that I’d like to get rid of.

Earrings for example. I have a lot of earrings, and the last time I wore earrings was at least two years ago. I wore them to a Christmas party, before that, it was probably at another holiday party the year before.

I used to wear earrings every day. But, I stopped for some reason. Maybe I should try wearing them again, but then I think of being in the pool and well, it would be one more thing to mess with. Meh. I guess I don’t miss wearing earrings all that much. Anyone want to buy some earrings? How about a necklace, or bracelet, or perhaps a ring?

I do not miss wearing jewellery. And, I have some nice pieces.

I don’t miss the art work we gave away either. Well, I think about one piece in particular,  but, I don’t miss it enough to write about it.

Things – no, I miss no thing.

People – oh, my heart aches with missing people.

I miss living close to Marian. Being able to walk up to her house, sit on her sofa for a visit, was the best. I miss the friends we moved away from, and the ones we never lived close to. I miss my students and teachers.

I really miss a lot of dead people. I’m not going into the list here, as I would go on and on and on. If I loved them and they died – I miss them!

My friend Anna gave me a refrigerator magnet a long time ago. It said, “The best things in life are not things.”

I guess I miss the best things in life!
