    Hey everyone...I have had it!!!!!


    I am hereby officially tendering my resignation as an adult. I have decided I would like to accept the responsibilities of an 8 year-old again.

    I want to go to McDonald's and think that it's a four star restaurant. I want to sail sticks across a fresh mud puddle and make a sidewalk with rocks. I want to think M&Ms are better than money because you can eat them.

    I want to lie under a big oak tree and run a lemonade stand with my friends on a hot summer's day. I want to return to a time when life was simple, when all you knew were colors, multiplication tables, and nursery rhymes, but that didn't bother you, because you didn't know what you didn't know and you didn't care. All you knew was to be happy because you were blissfully unaware of all the things that should make you worried or upset.

    I want to think the world is fair. That everyone is honest and good. I want to believe that anything is
    possible. I want to be oblivious to the complexities of life and be overly excited by the little things again.

    I want to live simple again. I don't want my day to consist of computer crashes, mountains of paperwork, depressing news, how to survive more days in the month than there is money in the bank, doctor bills, gossip, illness, and loss of loved ones.

    I want to believe in the power of smiles, hugs, a kind word, truth, justice, peace, dreams, the imagination, mankind, and making angels in the snow.

    So . . . here's my checkbook and my car keys, my credit card bills and my 401K statements. I am officially resigning from adulthood.

    And if you want to discuss this further, you'll have to catch me first, cause............."Tag! You're it." Try to remember the Simple things in Life.

    heheh Dottie I have been acting like an 8 year old for over a year now, and I highly recommend it. Just ask my husband and my children,,,,,,,, they think I should act my age,,,,,,,,but no way , this is too much fun.........In fact just the other night while out dancing,,,,,, I danced in 7 feet high of foam on the dance floor, I came out looing like a drowned rat,,,,,,,hair soaking wet, no makeup, clothes just hanging on for dear life, and it was FUN!!!!!!!! It was a first for me, and hey after being JW for years and having no childhood, no fun,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, we owe it to ourselves.

    SOOOOOOOOOO who wants to try and catch me with their bigger and better water balloon???

    HEHEHHE,,,,,,,,,,run Dottie, run!!!!!!!!!!

    Hey! Robin Williams has been acting like an eight-year-old and look how well he is doing! I have a little saying; "To be an idealist you have to be a realist, reality is what you base your ideals on, and your ideals make reality bearable!" Maverick
