September 1st – “Advice”

Poor Matt is getting sick. He kept sniffling and sneezing all day. I think he had a long week last week and it weakened his immune system. Poor Matt.
I went to Matt’s today for a small family cook out. Afterwards Matt and I went looking for couches and other furniture. We are still looking for the decent furniture at the best price possible.
My whole family went to look at our house today. Even Aunt Peggy who is in town for the week. No good can come of this. I will call it now, they will tell us exactly what we should do.
I am not critical about receiving advice in general. But lately all if the “advice” my family has given me has been given 1) without any consideration for the fact I have most likely already labored over the subject; and 2) with the expectation I will not hesitate to follow said advice immediately.
And once the advice is given then I get grief for trying to discuss why a different course if action should be taken. I do not need someone telling me what to do. But a good discussion never hurts.
I am sure tomorrow will yield the fruits of today’s visit. I cannot wait to stab myself in the eye with a pencil hear what my family has decided.
