27. When I am out and about I always look a person in the eye and say hello and even give a smile.

 

I usually get a smile and a hello back. But I am a home body and love being at home alone when my husband isn't with me. I have my pets and I like to read and watch television. My husband tells me I am home to much by myself. However, I tell him I like his company and my own company. Of course my son and his wife live next door but we seldom see them. I see the grandkids mostly every day for an 1 or 2. I love my quiet life. I know it sounds selfish but I was a kind of a person that gave a lot to others as far as my time and it was taking away from my own family. My husband asked me to back off some. He said as long as I carried other peoples problems they wouldn't solve their own. He was right. I finally back away some and now I am very happy because I get to do the things I like to do. But it is important to say hello and carry on a conversation when you see people.
