No. I 8767 m advocating a cessation of violence and hatred on both sides. There is a difference between coming to the table with the intention of looking for a peaceful solution and committing terrorist acts and then crying poor me.
Setting is extremely important to The Great Gatsby, as it reinforces the themes and character traits that drive the novel&rsquo s critical events. Even the weather matches the flow of the plot. Gatsby&rsquo s reunion with Daisy begins in a ferocious thunderstorm and reaches its happiest moment just as the sun comes out. Tom&rsquo s confrontation with Gatsby occurs on the hottest day of the summer. Finally, Gatsby&rsquo s death occurs just as autumn creeps into the air. The specificity of the settings in The Great Gatsby contributes greatly to the creation of distinct zones in which the conflicting values of various characters are forced to confront each other.
Thank you for trying to clarify your argument but your private/public distinction still makes no sense. Under that philosphy, you should be baking your own bread (How can cooking your family 8767 s food become private simply because processed food can be purchased in a store?) And one should never hire Stanley Steamer (which is one cleaning service I do use). Also, one should not ever use a home decorator or make service calls to electricians, plumbers, etc for home repairs because that would be private (you definitely can 8767 t call a backed up toilet at home a public affair).
If the biblical three score years and ten is to be believed we’re all living on borrowed time and we should enjoy it. And that’s what I’m doing and intend to carry on doing.
Thank you for this v. interesting post! I am sure lots of women relate to it!
I wanted to ask for a piece of advice: if you had a choice due to narrow finances to get help for either house-cleaning or babysitting, what you suggest? As we are now, I have a baby sitter once every weekend and a cleaning/ironing lady twice per month and it was working because my twins were too I was thinking whether it might make sense now that the grew older to get house cleaning every week and a nanny every now and then. I am really open to suggestions as I am starting a new job in a couple months from now! Thanks!!
We 8767 ve moved twice since Owen was born, and have had cleaning help here and there since, usually when things are especially busy (book contracts, another new baby ). Right now we 8767 re on our longest stint with consistent cleaning help Lynda, our current house cleaner, has been coming twice a month, 8-9 hours at a time, for about a year (with occasional breaks of a month here or there when vacations or other events came up.)
And what seemed so dreadful and depressing when one was — the obituary columns in the local paper: old Ada, 99, peacefully, with her loving children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren at her bedside — now seems almost attractive.
I could go on forever about the benefits of hiring a cleaning service and one thing that I don 8767 t necessarily consider competition but is always going to be available is the 8775 lady 8776 you 8767 ve hired to clean your home. Does she carry insurance? Have a business license? Here we pay for WorkSafeBC (I 8767 m not sure what the equivalent is in the States), but all these things cost money and a LOT of it, which is why we have to charge more. Does your 8775 lady 8776 pay taxes? I 8767 m able to provide 67 jobs for people in my community (and I provide vehicles, so they wouldn 8767 t be able to clean on their own without a car). Consider these things before you shun the big companies.
If you don 8767 t believe in specialization of labor then you should also be spinning your own clothing from your own raw materials and certainly should not have electricity or internets. And definitely nothing made in China. And dad shouldn 8767 t work outside the home (that you built yourselves by hand) either.
Since it 8767 s my retweet you 8767 re reposting (I had a feeling that if you saw that you 8767 d pick on it) I 8767 d like to point out the distinction. There 8767 s a big difference between being open about the fact that you choose not to spend your time on something, and constantly complaining about not having time for something. I brought up the issue here as an interesting discussion, not to complain. And if you knew me in real life, you 8767 d pretty much never hear me complain about not having time for anything, though I imagine, since BusyMom said 8775 popular 8776 activity, that she was talking about something like reading or exercise.
You really seem to have anger management issues, particuarly since you seem so angry and throw out insults simply because the world is filled with people who have different points of view. The insults don 8767 t help your position, but give the feeling that you 8767 re lacking in either self-control or wit.
