X is for Xenophobia, I think

We're closing in on the end of our A to Z Blogging Challenge. For more information on the challenge and its creator visit:   http://www.a-to-zchallenge.com

For X I've chosen the word xenophobia. That means an unreasonable fear, distrust, or hatred of strangers, foreigners, or anything perceived as foreign or different. Someone who is xenophobic might distrust a neighbor he's never met, or someone who lives halfway around the world. He might distrust people because they seem — foreign.

Okay, I realize this is a real stretch, but renovation was pretty foreign to me, and because I've been through a traumatic experience with our renovation, I now have a fear and distrust of contractors, builders, handyman types and anyone who comes to perform a service for us. Unreasonable? I don't think so, but whatda I know?

We're almost finished with A to Z! Aren't you glad you don't have to read but two more posts about my renovation? I am!

I'm just glad your renovations are done, for the most part, and you can relax, because the challenge is almost over, too!

Oh Mary! I'm glad too! I always look forward to the A to Z challenge though. I think next year I'll try to blog a book! 😀
