HippieChick58 comments on Mar 15, 2018:
I decided that being alone should not limit where I travel, funds do however. A year ago I went to Corpus Christie, TX for a winter vacation. In the fall I am planning a trip to Winnipeg. I can drive to Winipeg and I want to use my passport before it expires. Then I am limited only by funds and PTO. I'd love to have a travel partner, male preferred by a compatible female would be appreciated as well. I want to go to Cuenca, Ecuador one day. I want to stand on the Equator. I also explored Cuenca as an option for retirement, and then my kids started to have babies. I really want to be close by to see the grandkids grow up.
Where do you get most of your reading in?
HippieChick58 comments on Mar 15, 2018:
I try to read every night before I go to sleep. I'm in bed, book propped. My last book was "Jefferson's Daughters" a biography of the white and mixed race daughters of Thomas Jefferson. I also read online many times a day, I read several blogs. And then I read license plates and bumper stickers. I used to read cereal boxes. If it is print and in front of me I will read it.
Have you ever tried meditation? I personally enjoy meditation. Mostly, because it sharpens my ...
HippieChick58 comments on Mar 15, 2018:
Yes, I've done and I do meditate. Not as regularly as I should. I recommend the book 10% Happier by Dan Harris. Also when I'm alone, especially in the car not moving in traffic I will do a yoga "om" and I can actually feel my heart rate slow down and is calming. When I do it at home it freaks my cats out which is amusing.

HippieChick58 comments on Mar 14, 2018:
I'm sorry for your loss, and from the point of view of the church that is the perfect time to spread their message, they have a captive audience. First it is a worship service, and second it is a funeral. I've actually heard that discussed at church. Weddings were the same way. Churches are in the business of keeping business coming in.
Non-Religious Church?
HippieChick58 comments on Mar 14, 2018:
Yes, sort of. Unitarian churches, or Unitarian Universalist churches are out there. I heard the officiant say it was a "church for people who've been hurt by churches" which appealed to me. They had a service led by Wiccan's which amused me. There are satanic temples which aren't really churches as much as anti Christian gatherings.

What makes you are great partner?
HippieChick58 comments on Mar 14, 2018:
I have a great sense of humor and I'm loyal to a fault, I will always have my partner's back. I am a great cook when motivated. Cooking for one is not motivating. I am sometimes too smart for my own good, but I always have great conversations with good input. I like to be comfy I like to keep my partner comfy too. I am very (too) laid back, it take a lot to get me upset. I always will identify the elephant in the room, and I won't avoid hard conversations. I share very well. I have very few inhibitions
I know it's not traditionally done but I still love the effect the music and the dancers have on me....

HippieChick58 comments on Mar 14, 2018:
My dad used to reply to questions like this by asking "why? are you writing a book?" And if the answer was yes he'd say "then leave that chapter out." I have found that asking why they want to know usually makes someone think about what they have asked. And one advantage to having some hearing issues is simply to ask for the question to be repeated. The questioner has the opportunity to withdraw and everyone saves face.

How to 'come out?'
HippieChick58 comments on Mar 13, 2018:
A few qestions first, and I ask this because I am a mom and likely old enough to be your grandmother. Tell us about your mom? Is she super faithful or a CE christian (CE=Christmas/Easter, goes to church only on "holy days') And if a christian what denomination? Is she pretty laid back or is she a helicopter? Are you financially dependent upon her? How has she reacted to other challenges in the past? Is their a friend or relative you can bounce this off of before you talk to mom, get their perspective on how mom will react? What is the very worst case scenario that can happen? Are you close to your mom? Does it NEED to be now, or can it wait until you're out of HS and college and on your own? I was close to my kids and they told me lots, but I'm a laid back kind of mom anyway. Their dad they didn't tell so much cuz he's pretty tightly wound. If you think this is going to rock the boat in any way, approach with caution. And good luck.

How to Raise Smarter Children | Neil deGrasse Tyson - YouTube
HippieChick58 comments on Mar 13, 2018:
This is wonderful, I plan to bring it to my children's attention. One of the most annoying things my ex would do was they would start a sentence with "I wonder" and he'd shoot them down. The grew up pretty great despite him, but OMG, with a little encouragement one of them could have cured cancer already! And I love, love, love Neil Tyson.

HippieChick58 comments on Mar 13, 2018:
I think you made the correct choice in not having children. Children should only be born to those who want to be parents. And children are expensive, messy, disruptive, and a crap ton of work. Not everyone is cut out to deal with it, and I love your honesty. Now the hysterectomy is another story. You did not mention how extensive or which way it will be done, which is of course your perogative. Having had C-sections and working in disability claims, don't be surprised if it doesn't kick you onto your butt for a few days. Even the less invasive procedures are like having a blender in your guts. There are some huge hormonal changes that can happen not to mention it is abdominal surgery. Just listen to your body and take a few days of pampering. And good luck!! I do hope you sail through.
Ladies! Haaaaaaaaaalp! I have a date! I don't know what to wear.

HippieChick58 comments on Mar 12, 2018:
I had a kind of epiphany this weekend that I truly am going to be alone for a long time if not forever. I mean I've talked about it, and knew it was likely, but this weekend it seems to have really taken hold. It's not even worth trying to find someone. The last few connections I made on other dating sites have been scammers. The one real guy that I had a real date doesn't want anything besides a couple hours of Netflix a week. That isn't a relationship. Yeah, I'm a nice person but not the one. So, just me and the kitty girls. I'm sad, I tear up easily, and in the long run I'm going to be OK. I'm starting to bounce back now. And I will come back from this stronger than I was before. One of the things that makes me good at my job (or parts of my job) is that I can draw on my experience. I spoke with a woman today who just got an awful diagnosis, and told her "you don't know how strong you are until the only option is to be strong." So my friends, be strong. We will get through this.

HippieChick58 comments on Mar 11, 2018:
This is not new. I remember back in the early 2000s a growing church in the Kansas City suburbs had some reporters dress up as "less affluent and less white" looking individuals and visit on Sunday. They were not received well. It was a nasty newspaper article. I doubt much has changed.
What do you like most about yourself?
HippieChick58 comments on Mar 11, 2018:
That I am intelligent, compassionate, open minded, tolerant. I have raised three amazing daughters. I will fight to the death for them. Seriously, mess with my kids and I lose all compassion, tolerance and openmindedness, I go for blood. I am very creative, very resilient, and I'm stronger than I ever thought I would have to be.
What are your best coping strategies for dealing with death?
HippieChick58 comments on Mar 11, 2018:
Understand that death is part of life, nothing lives forever. And that the matter that makes us is recycled back into the universe so we're never really gone. Neil DeGrasse Tyson has a good description of that.

Defence of significant other
HippieChick58 comments on Mar 11, 2018:
I think the relationship between spouses needs to be above all other relatioinships. If you don't put your spouse first you are on the way out, IMHO. I had a disagreement with my former BIL. He is a bully and decided I wasn't pulling my weight. At the time the ex was in Korea, I was essentially a single parent of 3 small girls, the youngest a nursing infant. But when I asked the inlaws for help I was weak and needy. They replied "that's the way he is" and blew me off. The ex when he heard of it only said "he wasn't there, he couldn't judge." That is only part of the reaons he's now an ex.

Is this a Dating Site, or another Facebook?
HippieChick58 comments on Mar 11, 2018:
This site can be what you make of it. I find better discussions than on FB, and less of the look at my lunch crap. There is far less trolling and far less posting that make me roll my eyes. As for dating, some people have been sucessful. I'm in the middle of a conservative abyss and I don't think I'm ever going to find anyone. But life goes on.

HippieChick58 comments on Mar 11, 2018:
I was supposed to have had a date last weekend. I got stood up, "he had car trouble". This week he had to go somewhere in Canada for an emergency. My suspicion is that I will be asked for money before the end of the week. My last date that happend was about 6 weeks ago. He told me he wanted to see me, and then blocked me on the dating site. I would have preferred honesty but he doesn't seem to have the balls. Funny thing is, we had encountered each other about 6 years ago. I know his real name, his job, and his address. He is an architect for the state of Nebraska, and his last name would be suitable for a porn star.
What is your adult drink of choice?
HippieChick58 comments on Mar 11, 2018:

It has been a very gloomy birthday. Both weatherwise and in sentiment. I ponder the meaning of life...
HippieChick58 comments on Mar 11, 2018:
Birthdays can be hard, and I truly feel your pain, but let me give you some perspective. My 19th brithday I was in Basic Training in the Army. That was the day we went to Tear Gas training. I spent many birthdays away from family and loved ones while in the Army, and because of my dysfunctional family I might not have even gotten a card. I worked night shift on more than one birthday. So fast forward to today. I'm 60, divorced, haven't had a real date in probably a year and haven't had a relationship in much longer. I work too many hours, and I live with two cats. My kids are doing well but busy in their own lives. Yes, I am familiar with depression, anxiety, insominia, and panic attacks. Yes, I have toyed with an exit strategy, but I'm more afraid of pain and putting my kids through pain than I am of sticking around. So I took a look at my life and removed what was not working and focus on what makes me happy and gives me peace. I found some groups of atheists/agnostics and I particpate enough to satisfy my need for other people. I cut off several people that were not worth the effort to maintain the relationship. My life isn't perfect, but it's what I've got. And in the long run I'm better off than lots of people. I frequently ask myself if my problems are first world problems. There are two other guidelines I use. One is a line from Dr. Phil, **"how's that working for you?" **I ask myself that frequently and it it isn't working I work on changing it. And that is my other guideline. **People only change when the pain of staying the same is greater than the pain of changing.** What is it in your life that is causing you pain, and how can you fix it. That was the criteria I used when I decided on divorce. It hasn't been easy post divorce, and I traded one set of problems for another, but it was my choice. Hang in there, what I have learned is that nothing lasts forever. The sun will come out another day. You don't know how strong you are until the only option is to be strong. And my final cliche for you is that tough times really don't last, but tough people do. They may be cliches, but that doesn't mean they aren't true.

Who's got a religious name?
HippieChick58 comments on Mar 10, 2018:
When I had my girls I was looking for strong classic names, and not named after any immediate family members. Apparently several of my cousins had the same idea because some of the cousins used the same names about that time as well. I have Sarah, Michelle, Rebecca; which are all really biblical. My name is Paula, so feminized of the Apostle Paul, the miscogynist of the century. However I was a shortened version of Pauline, or Paulina who were my grandmother and great aunt.

I don't waste paper by using toilet paper, I use cloth personal wipes that I wash and reuse. I don't have cable, when/if I watch TV it is streaming. I like shopping at estate sales for stuff that I can either reuse, or resell. I don't buy when I can make. And that is a good start.

HippieChick58 comments on Mar 9, 2018:
My teenaged years were generally horrible. I had a step witch from age 14, she had a gestapo mindset. She bullied my dad, his greatest mistake ever was remarrying 6 months after my mom died. I could not go anyplace besides work, church, and school without her permission, and she wanted to control my paycheck. My dad did put his foot down then. She would not let me get a driver's license. It was like she sucked all the joy out of life. She was just a mean, unhappy woman,. I joined the Army at 18 to get out of her house. My sisters were sent off or rescued to live with other relatives and my brothers were out of the house. Basic Training was better than her house.
How irrational is society's pretense that many things like masturbation, menstruation and coitus ...
HippieChick58 comments on Mar 9, 2018:
When my girls were age 7 I probably had not talked to them about menstruation. But then again, I talked and still talk about anything and everything so they might have had a clue. But "the talk" no. I did have tampons and pads around, and they'd snoop in my bathroom often enough. Hmmmm, I might ask my girls about this next time we're together. The youngest had to have had a clue, given when she was 7 her older sister was 14. You are right that we don't talk openly about menstruation, however, we also don't talk about urine or feces either. Everyone knows we do it, it just isn't discussed. Same as for masturbation and/or coitus, I assume everyone does and it's no big deal to me either way.

Tips for moving out of state
HippieChick58 comments on Mar 8, 2018:
I have moved 23 times in my life, 21 of the moves as an adult. Unless your move is paid for by someone else, you have to make some choices. Take only the stuff you cannot replace or absolutely need. If you can drive there, keep the car. To make friend check out meet up groups. For a job, start looking now, start polishing the resume now. Read Askamanager.org for resume and job search advice. As to what you should know, you have local area experts that you're moving in with, ask them. Have fun! It is a new adventure.
What do you do for a living?
HippieChick58 comments on Mar 8, 2018:
I am a claims examiner for Short Term Disability. The fun part is when I say I work STD claims I get funny looks. So I deal with people who have had a close encounter with the medical profession and now I get to tell them whether or not they can get 60% or so of their basic weekly income. I have a guy on disability now how had a chain saw kick back and he took a good gash out of his foot. I've had a few claimants pass on. The worst part of the job is writing denial letters, although sometimes I get some satisfaction out of it. Sometimes it is talking to the claimants, people can be so rude. I told a woman this week if she continued to talk over me I'd hang up. I'm responsible for about 100 active claims, so we're busy! I don't touch every claim every day, but some days my phone does not stop ringing.

I don't do anything differently on FB. I post what I like and let the chips fall where they may. I lost a few "friends" over my political postings, I have no idea if I have lost any over religion. I am friends with only one coworker, and a few former coworkers and lots of family. I'd say my political postings are drawing the most ire. I have a cousin's son who is a republifuck gun lover, we clash on occasion. I either delete his comments or ignore. The family either ignores me or agrees with me. I yam what I yam and don't give a damn what anyone thinks.

My mom died at 45 of ovarian cancer. I have considered anything past 45 to be an unexpected gift. My double cousin died at 59 of glioblastoma. She was 5 years older than I was. (double cousin: her mom and my mom were sisters, her dad and my dad were brothers) Another two first cousins have passed before age 60. And then I work in Short Term disability claims. One of my claimants is out not working due to grief. Her life partner was a pedestrian hit by a car, he was in his early 30s, lingered for 6 weeks in the ICU. If you knew today would be your last day, what would you do differently? How do you know today won't be your last day? Live every day like your last.

We are living under the ancient Chinese curse: May you live in interesting times. I don't know about you, but I'd kinda like to be bored to death for a while.
How much sleep do you get?
HippieChick58 comments on Mar 7, 2018:
I push the envelope way too often between this site, FB, my books, crafts, and kitties. I was doing good for a while, but then this site became my addiction. And then there is my insomnia. Once in a while I will get 8 hours or more. Ain't gonna happen tonight. Ah heck, I can sleep when I'm dead, which may be sooner than later....

I'm trending towards miminalism and environmentalism, I'm not sure what a romanticist is.
My Philosophy about life is that we should be journey oriented and not goal oriented. For example, a...

It helps that I'v never really had a "goal" aside from making sure my kids grew up to be reasonably efficient and productive adults. That goal was exceeded. Now I'm just trying to hang aound with style, panache, and grace until I can retire. Or trying to not get fired until I can retire so I can keep health benefits. Whichever works. I've never had a good answer to the "where do you see yourself in X years" question. Life take too many twists and turns. There's still too much I don't know, and my damn crystal ball cracked before I got it out of the box.
Is he just not into me?
HippieChick58 comments on Mar 7, 2018:
What do you have to lose by sending a message and asking how he is, suggesting another date? What is the worst that could happen? He may have ghosted you, he may be shy. How much do you want to know?

I eat less meat based protein and more vegetable based protein. I don't have the capabilities or facilities to raise my own animals or butcher them.

Honesty

I am in Nebraska a very conservative state. I haven't had anyone make an issue of relgion and as I am not the most social of people it hasn't been an issue. I don't talk religion at work, off work I socialize with family and friends from my Humanist meet up group.

My kids did read some of his books in high school, good little liberal atheists that they are. They read People History before I did, about 15 years before I did.
Gardening
HippieChick58 comments on Mar 6, 2018:
I have two 4X4 raised beds, and pots on my deck. I have grown lots of tomatoes. I grow a varieety of herbs, and other vegetables as it strikes my fancy. We'll see what gets planted after I hit the garden centers.
