Reading Other People’s Stories.

Read a story from a writer in her about her mother. It’s really interesting to read other people's stories about their parents. So, this lady’s mother kind of did what mine did. (She was a bit more extreme in some of here endeavors) but it comes down to the same thing, looking for something to change the life they were leading.

My mom was never happy in her life. From stories I’ve heard from people, they argued all the time even right after they got married. I think that she always felt that my dad settled for her when he couldn’t have the woman that he really wanted. Maybe he did, but she went along with it. Any way through the years she was into Edgar Casey, Jose Silva, Vitamins, Fung Sway…you name it she probably tried it. At the end of her life, she was more into vitamins than anything else, to the detriment of $400 to $500 bucks a month. (Money that she really couldn’t afford to spend that way.) Plus, there was always something better than the one she had. Case in point air purifiers ~ last ones she bought were some from Eden Pure (thunder) that cost $129.00 each. She did get them at by one get one free and ended up with 4.

Then there's the political aspect. Unfortunately, she was pro Trump. Which it’s her right to vote for who she wants. Just like it’s my right to not agree with her. Of course, not agreeing with her meant that I was a heathen liberal. The public school system had warped our minds. (My sister and mines. My brothers are and were Trump all the way)

Any way I didn’t finish this on the day I started it, so lost my whole train of thought in regard to this entry.
