I don’t understand enough about monetary policy to seriously debate this issue. But I do know that I always felt that it was a shame that the individual countries had to surrender their own currencies to become part of a larger whole market. I understand the logic in terms of successfully competing against the bigger American market and the huge Asian market but I never understood how they could incorporate all the countries into one currency because every country is at a different economic strength and how does that even itself out over time? Greece and Portugal might be better off exiting the union and starting all over again.

I can’t remember changing my mind about anything. When I say that, I should mention that I’m pretty easy-going about a lot of things. I should also mention that I can’t remember anything that does not have a significant impact on my day-to-day life. My memory is getting worse year by year, it used to be photographic, now I can barely remember the overall theme of something that I read and I know that I enjoyed it, I’m just fuzzy on the content. Very frustrating, especially when I want to debate about something. I used to be able to recite facts and statistics to bolster whatever argument I was making, nowadays, if I’m tired I can barely remember the subject I’m currently debating. That might be a slight exaggeration, I’ll get off topic but I don’t forget what I’m arguing about, I’ll just forget some supporting fact that I might have read a few days prior or I might get lost in my thread of argument and I get incoherent. It does make me sad because I do enjoy a good debate and I’ve lost my confidence in being able to back up any arguments that I have because I can’t remember an article I read that morning that is pertinent to the point that I want to make. But there are worse things in the world, I just need to adjust and compensate in other ways. Getting off topic, need to get back to the question at hand.
So, since I can’t remember if I have changed my mind anytime recently, I went to the husband and daughter to see what they had to say about it. I didn’t think it would start anything serious, but they ended up arguing over whether or not I have changed my mind in the past. Very disappointed in the outcome. I have to say that I’m really disappointed in my husband, he can’t just let my daughter disagree with him to just disagree. He has to take it personally and she gets upset, which makes me upset, I don’t say anything, but I’m still upset internally. So, now he’s pouting downstairs and she is pouting in her room and I’m here at my desk typing away.
What was the question? Ha, ha. I haven’t changed my mind on finishing this topic. I will continue exploring the issue. The only thing that I can think of, is when I’m at say, Friendly’s or at a movie theater and I am not going to get a chocolate shake or a box of cookie dough bites, then I change my mind. But is it really changing my mind or is it giving in to temptation and being weak. I don’t know. I do know that not remembering things does make it hard to change your mind because you don’t know that your mind was changed.
