My Story Thread 37 - Blended, not stirred
#50: October 01, 2021, 02:27:43 AM
But I am sitting here at work eating my lunch thinking "Chop it off reading??"  Then it hit me - oh yeah, if your foot offends thee, chop it off.  Then I chuckled.... I guess that is what happed to LB and SPQ... they offended thee and I cut them off.  The Bible is right.... tis much better this way.   



Yeah.... My life would make a pretty boring movie at this point....

Found out last night that the parents of RD20's Best Friend that live sort of diagonal to us (they live 4 doors in this direction from my former house) are looking to sell their house.... R and I are thinking about buying it for a rental property (extra income in retirement) and then, if and when RD20 needs it, we have it.... We'll see... It is a seriously big step and I'm torn. This one would be in my name though while where we live now is R's house... Scary step to commit one's self to a fairly large mortgage at 58 but I see others here doing similar things and, since it is really one street over, maintaining it wouldn't be too difficult... We'll have to see what they are asking.... or planning to ask...

A "friend" will not "stand by you" no matter what you do. That is NOT a friend. That is an enabler. That is an accomplice.
A REAL friend will sit you down and tell you to your face to stop being a firetrucking idiot before you ruin your life and the lives of those around you.

I thought it was  "If thine eye offends thee, pluck it out!"   ;D

Thanks for the wonderful update, UM.  I'm happy life is good for you and R and the kiddo's.

A quote from a recovered MLCer: 
"From my experience if my H had let me go a long time ago, and stop pressuring me, begging, and pleading and just let go I possibly would have experienced my awakening sooner than I did."

That's the third thing.... "If your hand causes you to stumble, cut it off for it is better to enter the kingdom of heaven with one hand than to be consigned to hell.... And if your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off for it is better to enter the kingdom of heaven lame than be sent to hell where the worm never dies... " etc. NSRV Mark 9

Great to see your update UM. Sounds blissfully normal. Love the idea of your buying that house. Don't think of it as being saddled with a mortgage at 58, but rather an investment that will likely yield far more than any investment fund.  Hope it works out.
