WHY DO I DOUBT?

I had a check to deposit and Rojo likes to use the ATM, so off we went.

He punches in my PIN.

He punches in  a series of Yeses, Nos, and finally we come to the amount to deposit. I am holding the check, he hasn't laid eyes on it.

"Put in $72.36," I say.

He stalls.

"7-2-3-6," I repeat.

He doesn't move.

"What's wrong?" I finally ask.

"I'm going to put in $72.35," he says.

I start to argue, not wanting to enter the wrong number and mess everything up, but get the urge, instead, to re-examine the check.

Don't you know it, the check was for $72.35.

Getting caught up after being unplugged for awhile. This made me laugh!

Glad you went to the reunion and had a good time. It's interesting how when one person opens the gate, others will follow suit with the realities of life, not just the best little parts. I have a few SIOK in my life as well. I think I've been that person to some as well.

Go big with the urge to trust Rojo.

Of course. This is perfection in so many ways. I love that the first thing you did was to look at the check again. Wise woman.

HAha! I've had the same conversation with Piper over other things but she likes to add the "clearly it's ___" just so I know who is right. =)

It IS so strange and frustrating how we repeat ourselves -- over and over and over. I'm glad that Rojo is keeping you off that track --

I ask myself the same question. Why do I doubt? My son is only 7 and his memory is longer than most old men!
