The Good Old days

August 16, 2021 at 2:07 pm (Uncategorized) (, , )

keeping up withy ever changing times isn’t something I am good at. I like the old fashioned way of paying my bills. I have always enjoyed visiting with the Customer Service people while paying my bills. I like shopping for my groceries instead of ordering ahead for pickup. Since I am the only one living here, I pump my own gas.

Don’t get me wrong, I understand families order ahead groceries, take-out, medications packets, home delivery services. Covid19 and now the variants has made people fearful to get back out into the community. With the recent increase in hospitalizations, vaccine debates, mask mandate debates it is a real mess out there. I can see why families are taking extra care for the family. 

I tried online banking once- I never could get into my account . I once asked the operations manager at my bank to try and break into my account ( I am not kidding) she could not get into my account either. so you see, I am doing things still the old fashioned way. I also still like to go clothes shopping that way I can try on my garment instead of guessing what my new size is now and having to send the item back anyway.  I like reading a physical book. I want to turn the page and see what happens next in my cozy mysteries.  I support my community by  by shopping local, drive-thru quick meals, but love cooking at home. I don’t really get together with friends much due to our conflicting schedules.

Since I don’t have grandkids, I don’t go to the ball games, or dance recitals. I sometimes let my mind wander to what if I had a grandchild to spend the night and go for nature walks with. baking with grandma, painting rocks and hiding them in the forest, swimming in the lake, making tents out of chairs to sleep in. My life took another direction when I lost my son 14 years ago. I am perfectly happy with how my life has turned out.  Besides, half the fun to me is being able to tell your son his daughter walked for grandma today. I would miss out on that also.
