chris's garden

I love to garden, and am out side on most days when I am not working, in it. I HATE winter!!! LOL

I also need to get my self back on track. some days I'm pretty good other days not so. I have some physical issues, but I am not in pain (thank God) so I am careful of what I can do, mostly low impact things are fine. So there are some things I will not do that cause undo stress on my body. It does not limit me for most part.

I am divorced, I have 4 grown sons. No grands ...

I am divorced, I have 4 grown sons. No grands yet. I look after my 80 year old mother. She is still very mobile and on her own. I work full time and part time, and am involved in various thing that keep me busy.

I am forever repairing or replacing things in my 85 year old house! I love to work with my power tools and do repairs around my house. All the doors and windows have been replaced, both baths have been replaced and are fairly new. replaced all flooring. Still needs siding, and walkway replaced.

So now I need to redo this body! So that it will serve me well, for many more years. I have been at it for awhile. I am determined, sometimes just not motivated! I need to do this, for me, because I AM worth it.

Yeah .......... I agree ......... This gal went completely out of control reporting things that were downright lies and slanderous to a few of us ................ She banked on us not saying a word to the manager ........... This time she thought wrong so the manager took her aside and reamed her good!! ...... (I know she was shocked!) .......... (Sometimes people take advantage of a Christian's good nature shall we say, assuming nothing will be said .......... Just keep forgiving a jillion times! ............. Now to the invisible part ............. "You are DEAD to my eyes Sistah!!" ...... emoticon (she was reeling in shock!) ........... still using your invisible on a few others too! ...........Ignoring does make a statement ............ :) ............ emoticon

Hi Chris ............. Just wanted to tell you your words did not fall on dead eyes some time back I mentioned a narky nasty person and you said to treat those peeps as 'invisible.' ........... Put this to use with someone who was using a knife not for paring apples but stabbing in backs!!! emoticon .... At first I turned the other cheek and gave her the benefit of the doubt ................ But when I saw she was going to keep up her nasty antics ................. it was full bore she caught all the Hell she dished right back ......... and having done so she is NOW INVISIBLE!!! ............ (shared that w/ the other co-worker who got the knife to the back too--what you said) .............. She burned her bridges and will wonder why we 'cant' see her!" .................. so GOOD advice!!!
