It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

There Is Such A Thing As Karma

 "People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime "

Thank you to FatDoorMouse who wrote this in response to my Wednesday  blog "Choices"..
She is right, before so called Friends turn on you and behave in a way that makes you wonder what did you ever see in them, what ever were you thinking ?
There was something about them that made you like them, made you want to be friends.
When it is "real life", then it is easier in ways, you can see expressions and hear tones.
When it is "on line life", then people , not very nice people, can hide their smirks, disdain etc while typing away to some unsuspecting person who still hasn't got that "Trust" thing down .. you know, the sort that If you are nice to them, they think you are a friend .. they trust right away, they disregard the fact that you can be horrible to other people, even a spouse, but  they  never think that you would do that to them.
Unsuspecting and gullible people are not bad, they are just vulnerable to the Ugly people .

I guess when it comes right down to it, I want to continue to be the person who is open and wiling to give someone a chance, I seem to have more lovely friends than not, and the ones that are not, were nice, somehow, at one time.
Obviously something happened in their lives that changed them.
Too bad it just didn't change them to Nicer rather than Horrible.
Because now I can imagine them, older, alone, no friends. . just a few dogs to keep them company, if even that.

So thank you dear Doormouse ,  this will be the end of my philosophizing .. I think the weather, planting flowers in pots and figuring out how to keep the cats from eating them , how to get cat p**p stains out of white carpet ... who in their right mind puts in wall to wall white carpet in an entire duplex apartment ?? all should keep me sufficiently busy today .
Of course the kitchen and downstairs are not carpeted, but apparently, tile is no fun to poop on.
Carpet must have a more toilet like quality to it.
I know ... it is too early in the day to be pondering the mind of a cat when it comes to where it poops.

So onward and upward kids ! Time to Rise and Shine ! Make hay while the sun shines ! Do Not Go Back To Bed !
Kind of makes you want to yell shut up , doesn't it ?

So go out there and be nice. See if you get some nice back for it.
Yes, there is such a thing as Karma .


  1. Happy Friday and happy early Feliz 9 de Julio! I just wanted to send you a note to let you know how much I love your blog! I am a recruiter in Charleston, SC with OneinaMil and we are working to fill 4 great positions in Buenos Aires. I was researching Argentina and came across your blog it is so great, very well-written and full of very helpful information. Thank you for doing it and I hope you enjoy a great holiday weekend.

  2. Wow, Ashley, thank you so very much !

  3. Yes, my cat prefers to use the carpet rather than the tiled or wooden floors. Of course. I think it's something to do with absorbency. What do I know, I'm not a cat!
