    One of my friends worked as a garbage man for a little while and his garbage truck had one of those large overstuffed carnival teddy bears strapped to the front like a hood ornament. He was so proud of it that he even took pictures!

    That must be a passed-along garbageman thing, because I've seen that in my town, too.

    Apparently you've never met my husbands sister then.

    I can love them, but I don't necessarily have to like them.

    Today my 6 yr old son told me that he wants to travel in a different way than in a car. He plans to ride on a flying saucer in a martian spacesuit.

    Obviously never met my sister either.

    Shay, I don't have to like or love mine just because we share the same genes. I hope there aren't many people like my family out here. I would love to have a close loving family and so would my husband, but for some reason, neither side has much if anything to do with the other. And in some cases there are good reasons.

    Smilingmom, I want to ride like that too.

    My simple pleasure today: being told by someone I look up too and respect that they admire me!!!!! Wow! I was blown away.
    (and it was NOT a family member.)

    Ditto here.

    I have a drug-addicted, alcoholic, manic depressive, child abandoning sister. I can't like her, and I'm really unsure if I can love her.

    Hubby has a drug-addicted, male-addicted, child abandoning (to the State, no less) sister, as well. We don't like her either.

    Thank Goodness we each have normal siblings as well.

    My favorite simple thing is getting a greeting from my baby Daisy when I come home from work each day. She loves her mommy and I can proudly say, she's the most beautiful doggy I've ever seen.

    And here I am thinking, "Isn't 'Daisy' an adorable name for a little girl!"
