Hubert H. Humphrey – Quote Of The Week

The quote that I chose for this week is by Hubert H. Humphrey.

I don’t have a ton of friends, and I am okay with that.  As I have gotten older and I have learned that I would rather have no friends than have people in my life that only care about themselves.  I know when I was younger I was always worried about the number of friends I had.  The older I have gotten, the more I realize that I would rather have no friends than deal with people who aren’t real friends.  I no longer care or have the patience for people in my life who aren’t honest and sincere.  I have cut out the majority of negative people out of my life because I don’t have the energy to deal with them anymore.  Those are just a few of my thoughts on this quote.

What do you think of this week’s quote by Hubert H. Humphrey?

Writers Workshop-Best or Worst Gift

Best Or Worst Gifts

This week I chose to write about number four which is: Best or worst gift you have received. When I saw this prompt I knew I wanted to write about it because one of the worst days in my life happened on Christmas and I don’t think I have ever written about it on my blog so I figured now is as good as any time to talk about it.

Now that being said this wasn’t a true gift because I couldn’t hold it or anything like that, but it did happen on Christmas day.  It was about 4 years ago since my now ex-husband thought it would be a great idea to send me a text message on Christmas day telling me that he wanted to get a divorce.  We did end up trying to figure things out after but it didn’t work because he could never understand why telling some that they want a divorce on Christmas was something that I could never forget.  I still have a heard time at Christmas because of what he did but every year I do my best to not let what he did bring me down.

What was your best or worst gift?

Here are all the prompts for this weeks writers workshop in case you want to pick one and write about it.

1. Write a blog post inspired by the last text exchange you responded to.
2. Share a favorite holiday inspired recipe!
3. Create a gift guide.
4. Best or worst gift you ever received.
5. Describe how you would celebrate the holidays if it was totally up to you and money was not a factor.
6. Write a blog post inspired by the word: frozen.

Best Present 2012 #WritersWorkshop

This year for Christmas I got my first iPod.  It is hard to believe that I love Apple products and yet I have never had an iPod.  Anyway I got the blue one.

iPod TouchI was so excited to get it and now that I have it I know for a fact that I want to get an iPhone.  I just have to figure out where to get one from and then I have to take it to T-Mobile and have them activate it for me.  Anyway that was so not what this post is about.  My grandparents also paid off my dentist bill so that was nice as well.  I literally spent all day yesterday messing around with it and downloading apps on it.  I love that I can now carry around all my music and it also gives me something else to mess around with when I can’t sleep at night.

Christmas was better this year than it has been for the last few years so that was nice as well.  I think I am going to write a separate post on why Christmas day is hard for me now.  I haven’t written about it yet because up until this year I wasn’t able to get through the day let alone write a post about it.  So be on the look out for that.
