Saying for the Day: I just want to be first, that's all.
I have a confession to make. I suffer from comment jealousy or at the very least comment irritation .
Its all because I helped my wife set up her own blog so she could leave comments that didn’t have my name on them. I do nice things for her like that. She has jumped right in and is commenting away with real gusto.
So now when I go viewing through my usual blogs , the one’s I have links to, there are her comments. There is her picture. I feel upset.
I think it comes from my childhood. I always wanted to be the first one to tell my family whatever the good news was. It really irritated me when my sister got there first. I wanted to be the one to tell them.
When my first son was born I wanted to be the one to tell everybody but I made the mistake of telling my mother first. She got to all my relatives before I could. That irritated me.
Now I like to tell Betty what ‘s going on in Mimi’s blog or Catch’s blog, or any other blog on the list. When I see her picture I know she has already been there and got the information before me.
It really isn’t fair because she blogs at night and I blog in the morning so she gets a head start.
I hope I can come to grips with these negative thoughts before I say anything. After all she does control my oxygen.

Got a birthday card from my sister Dawn with two Michigan Lottery tickets. Each had nine seperate games. Not a winner in the bunch. B etty and I spent most of the day designing, cutting out, painting, and building the Garage for Pigeon Falls. It was time for Toivo and Eino to have a new building. Well I need a breathing treatment.
