I thought I would share some of my first posts with you while I get my self together.. Keeping with what is seemingly the theme for this week.. I don”t wanna grow up..or something like that. This is from Halloween – but true for all seasons, I think. Happy Friday!!

I think that probably every one of us in our childish ignorance could not wait to grow up. Oh I Know, I just made the dreaded generalization and to counter it, I do realize that somewhere out there is probably someone who recognized the benefits and savored each and every moment of childhood, including doing the dishes and picking up dog poop. And then of course there are those of us who couldn’t wait to grow up and now that we are here by default (as in age) refuse to act like it. In my case, it’s not in defiance. I am not trying to be childish to prove a point or make a statement. I just am. I will chalk it up to the bipolar. I have heard a couple of theories on that but mostly it’s just because I found I can get away with it if I say that. Sad, but true. As a rule I don’t blame bipolar disorder in order to deny personal accountability. I fall back on that type of statement to avoid going into left field and therefore completely beyond the scope of the point I am trying to make.
