Day 1653: I don’t get it

These days, there are lots of things I don’t get.

I don’t get

  • why I get upset when people don’t get me,
  • why I feel insecure when I don’t get it,
  • why people get away with so much,
  • why so many people voted for Trump,
  • why getting ready for a move is so stressful,
  • and many other things that get me.

Get it?

Whenever I get a cup of tea, I usually get the saying that I get with the teabag. Yesterday, I didn’t get it.


Maybe I don’t get it because the word “should” gets to me. (If you’d like to get an early post  of mine about shoulds,  get it here.)

If you get that teabag saying, I hope I get a comment about it.

In every moment of life, I should be what I ought to be.  I should be sharing my other photos from yesterday, so I ought to get them for you.




Did you get that I heard beautiful music at  work and got another great dinner from Michael?

“I don’t get it” gets a lot on YouTube (get it  here, here, here,  and here).

I don’t get a lot, but I get thankful every day for people who help me get what I need to create this daily blog. I hope you get this: I’m especially thankful for YOU.

  1. I want to check out those links now.

  2. and we are happy to be here, you help us too. each and every day. i think maybe it means that some people give up and don’t strive for their full potential, sometimes living a bit of a half-life, not being true to themselves? i know that’s a lot, but that’s all i’ve got. ) it may just have made the whole thing even more confusing ….

  3. I get that should makes you shudder, Ann!

  4. Moving house? A year ago I moved to where I am now. I thought I was a pro, having relocated 17 times before. This last time? The worst. WORST! I didn’t get it then. I still don’t get it. But I got through it. You will too.

  5. Lots in the world today not to get. But we get what we can and try not to worry about the rest. Happy moving….I know it sucks.

  6. Maybe we have to give up our need to “get it” and just go with the flow of things, but having moved three times in the last year, I get it. Quoting the late, great Zig Ziglar, “If you can’t change the facts, you might as well change the attitude.” Get it?

  7. Don’t you worry….I get it! (*•̀ᴗ•́*)و ̑̑

  8. “My house is me and I am it. My house is where I like to be and it looks like all my dreams.”
    That’s from The Big Orange Splot by Daniel Pinkwater, a book I’ve thought about as you’ve been in the process of moving. It’s a simple story of a man who paints his house in vivid colors and plants all sorts of trees in his yard. One by one his neighbors try to talk him out of it, and one by one they leave and change their own homes because they get it.

  9. I thought I got it, but after all those videos expressing confusion, I don’t get it. e days are like that. Purging does that to your brain. Maybe you need to take a couple hours doing nothing, then back at it. It will all sort itself out in the morning. Or after ice cream. Or a walk on the beach. Or a warm cat on your lap. Or puppy love. Get it?

  10. That is a delicious looking dinner Ann. The word should drives me crazy. The teacher I worked with this past year always said to the kids “you SHOULD” know…arghhhhhhhhh

  11. There are many things I don’t get, and there are people I don’t get but that is ok some people don’t get me either

  12. You aren’t sailing alone on that ‘don’t get it ship’ Ann. But I’m glad to be on board with you.

  13. I don’t get the tea tag, either but I did get that book?

  14. I don’t suppose I should get this:

  15. I agree — SHOULD should be WANT — Should is someone else telling us how to be. You and I are as pretzelly as we can be, and no one can tell us to be otherwise!

  16. I didnt get to WordPress for a couple of days…. but I get your post Ann. 💕 No shoulds about it!
