Ok... what else to say. Raining today. Yesterday was fairly nice. Today is rain. I like rain personally. But then I live along the coast of WA so I had better. If I did not like rain I would do well to move. But I like rain so I am ok.
Took a gentle mild walk on Sunday. Cannot walk far since surgery. But that should improve. Sunday is the day off for big trucks. So it is a good day to go out in the woods. The roads are narrow and Sunday is the day to avoid the worst traffic. It was nice and the dogs liked it a lot. Think this Sunday coming up might be too rainy for the woods. I don't much mind but some of the roads are rough and even in Teresa's truck we almost got stuck last week and it was a nice day. We will see.
Been thinking about what is in my head. The concepts I live by -- not the gray matter. And have decided that I do what I am told way too much of the time. I need to remember that the statement, "No." is a perfectly reasonable answer. Especially if said politely. Why is it considered rude to say, "No." in this society? I wonder if it is that way in other countries than the mainland US? Here, unless you have a very good reason, it is just considered rude to say a simple, "No." That is weird. So long as one does not yell or use curse words, saying, "No" should not be anything bad. But it is. People take it like a personal insult. And most of the time it has nothing even to do with the person one said "No" to. It usually -- at least with me -- has to do with my own problems or concerns or my schedule. Or lack of time or energy. If I don't want to do something it usually is not that I don't want to do it with the person who asked me. Or for the person who asked me. It is usually that I just don't like the activity or I need to be doing something else. I guess people are just going to have to get used to me saying, "no." Or I am going to have to get used making people annoyed. Ah. Well.
