If I were to pick a traffic sign that represents life, I would go with this one.
Life is about moving forward, leaving the past in the past, and making tomorrow a better day.
I went to the Shoppette on Redstone Arsenal. The Shoppette is a small store with only a hand full of cash registers to check out.
I had two items in my shopping cart. I walked up to the cash register and the cashier asked me if I had already paid for my items. I said, no.
Then all sorts of things started going through my mind. What did she think I did, go to one of the other cash registers and pay then walk over to her cash register after paying for my items.
I also wondered what she would have said if I said, yes I already paid. Would she have just let me walk out of the store even though I had not paid of my items.
They say there is always a first time for everything and I must admit this is the first time I have ever been asked if I had already paid for my items while waiting at the cash register to pay.
I just keep thinking about her and laughing.

Vulnerability is the birthplace of connection and the path to the feeling of worthiness. If it doesn’t feel vulnerable the sharing is probably not constructive. – Brene Brown

I had a MRI on my knee scheduled for this week, but wasn’t able to get it done.
I have a BAHA (Bone Anchored Hearing Aid) implant and was supposed to bring a card that was issued after surgery regarding the BAHA and MRI safety. However, I lost that card a long time ago.
I showed up for my MRI and the technician refused to do it without any safety documentation.
I went home and tried to find the card, but never did. However, I did find a prescription that was written for me two years ago that I never filled.
For some reason, stuff like this happens to me a lot. Oh well, I guess that’s how it goes when you have a laid-back, free-spirited, type B personality.
