so i’ve been thinking this week… and today i can’t get it out of my head. i think that’s why there are toys covering the floor of every room and supper is still not prepared… 

if you really stop and think. 

if someone says something and you do not know them well or you do not consider them a dear friend, are you quicker to state your opinion on a controversial issue or less likely?

do you not state your opinion because you are afraid of offending them if you are not friends with them or more apt to state your opinion on a controversial issue if you are friends with them?

this is very interesting to me. 

all my life, i believe, i think the very opposite of the majority of people. 

if you are dear to me, i am more apt to state my thoughts/feelings/convictions on a controversial issue than if i didn’t know you… is this just me who does this? are you one who states your opinion to no one for fear of not keeping the peace? do you state it as gracefully as possible in your best efforts to keep the peace? do you say nothing, walking away feeling guilty for not saying the truth or how you really feel? i do all three of these things; yet not once feeling like one is “more right” than another… what are your thoughts???

yesterday was a fun day for sure!!! 

auntie colors (heather) surprised us with a phone call tuesday night saying they would love to come wednesday! i was jumpin up and down! it’s so fun to have company! 🙂 amanda and henry came too.

amanda and i were chattin on the phone on their way here and she mentioned henry thought we lived with “babushka pam” (grandma pam for us english users and i’m sure that’s spelled wrong). i had to laugh!! i bet so! that’s where we always are when we see henry! he he he! i’m surprised he didn’t say “never seen carpet like this momma” ROFL (he says that to chicken and other things, so cute!) 

i told lizzie auntie colors, ethan, lane, attie, lilli, gena, auntie amanda and henry were coming but couldn’t come until she took a nap. *grin* she went right to sleep with an early nap. she woke up just a few minutes after amanda and henry arrived she woke up really chipper!! she’s normally not fun to be around for 10 or so minutes after waking up. 

at first she was awfully concerned about her toys that were being played with by 6 other loveys! but soon she was joining them and not concerned a bit! it’s been six months or so since they’ve been here so she’s never had to deal with everyone playing with all HER toys. 🙂 i’m glad she wasn’t nasty! 

we even caught gena and lizzie playing together several times! YAY! for some reason she’s so threatened by gena! lizzie is usually on gena’s turf so i’m hoping lizzie will be cool with gena from now on and not be so nervous… 

we had a super yummy lunch that we all indulged in and headed out to see our land. it was so fun to be able to share that with someone. i hadn’t brought anyone out there yet (well the appraiser doesn’t count). it really finalized everything for me. 

it looks like there are several towers all around where our new house will be, but they are all at least a couple miles away. so surely they wouldn’t put any towers closer to us! what’s that saying, keep your friends close but your enemies closer – that’s how i feel about them-there towers. 

heather took some great pictures of the little one’s playing on the swing set and climbing trees! love her camera and thoughts behind the pictures! so fun! can’t wait to see them. i’ll share them on here when i do. 

it’s raining and gloomy today. *sigh* a day to stay inside with a coffee, knitting and reading. 

happy thursday!
