Okay, so yesterday I posted that in one week (last week), I lost a diamond out of my wedding band, and  insurance covers the stone, but not the repair; lost a wedding gift from husband, a gold initial necklace ordered from England and $$$$, my iPod, my Fitbit, my favorite Purple Leather notebook and today THIS!   Should I just accept this as part of life or wonder “What have I done to deserve this?”.  Oh yes and a book I sent was stolen out of the package before it was delivered.

Beginning to think I should lock myself in a room and stay there for a week, or a month or whatever…  This kind of thing happen to anyone else?  Or is it a full moon?  Two of my former students had a whole house full of staging furniture, art and accessories stolen this week.  Is it in the stars?

I wonder about life in today’s world sometimes.  Thank you notes are a thing of the past, greeting cards are hardly ever sent and RSVP is “what is that”?  Wonder what life will be like in twenty years?  Will people quit having parties, because with no RSVP’s you have no idea how many people to expect?

I for one am done giving Christmas gifts to adults, as I never even get an acknowledgment that what I sent was received, let alone a thank you note. An email is just not the same, and mostly I have not gotten one those anyway.

Betterif gifts had an automatic response card saying, I received it, I love it or hate it, but thank you for the thought.  With the amount of stuff I have lost in the last two weeks I will be spending my money on replacing my own stuff.  Maybe it is time I finally become self-centered.

What do you think?
