Mixed Blessings, Tired, Overall a Good Day

Saturday, April 12, 2014

Well, the schedule for work has changed and I am working only half the days I thought I would work. That is a mixed blessing as I will make only half what I thought I would be making but, and this could be a big BUT! I will have more open weekends to plan personal things and hope that will include my friend with whom I want a deeper relationship.
I am tired today and don't know why, but I suppose we all have those days. I was tired when the grands got here to go to lunch then the grandboy stayed with me while his mother and sister went to a "girley girl" birthday party. We went for a 1 mile walk and I am not sure that I could have walked any farther today. I am yawning now as I type this.
Over all this was a good day, tired or not. The sun is shing, the air is warm, and the kidlies were good. Can't ask more more, except to maybe win a big lottery! LOL! Guess I need to start buying tickets to do that!

    Hi! Yup, sounds like a mixed blessing. If you get to spend more time with your new friend it will be for sure a great blessing!! Sounds like you had a busy day. It was an awesome day for the Chowder Cookoff. We sold out of water and Coke - only diet left. They better get more water next year. The place was packed. The soda wagon was right by the live band and they were good. We very much enjoyed it. Have a really great Sunday. Get a good nights sleep! Hugs

Prom Schedules

Friday, April 11, 2014

Well, it seems that I am scheduled to work every Friday and Saturday during Prom Season, including the ones when I will be in Florida! Sent the manager an e-mail right away and he is going to reschedule for that weekend! The perks of being part time/when needed and available and doing a good job the past 3 years.
One bad thing though. I won't see my friend with whom I would like a closer relationship until sometime in June unless I see him on Sunday evenings for a little while. You see, he owns his own business and goes to his office early in the am to get ahead and stays until later for those late orders to come in; so, he likes to go home and shower and relax during the week. Saturday and Sunday during the day he likes to be on the golf course and Sunday night, although he will do some things, have to be early nights.
I hope he misses me and realizes that I am a lot of phun so that we can develop this friendship more. Prayers please!

Redneck Ingenuity

Thursday, April 03, 2014

My 1991 Miata needed a new mirror (the old one fell off); so I ordered one from the local dealer. My neighbor's son was to put the new one on but with the bad winter and his job he didn't get here until yesterday. Well he and his Dad took the old pieces off and that was when we realized that the new one had a part that was wrong!

What was I to do? I no longer have the receipt and even if I had it a replacement would have the same wrong part. Well, Chuck pulled the old parts out of the trash and with a little redneck ingenuity I now have a mirror, can get the car inspected, and be ready for ragtop days.

Gonna Be Sore!

Wednesday, April 02, 2014

Today the sun is shining and the air is warm; so, after cleaning out the linen closet in the master bedroom I thought, "Hm, you have on shorts, you need sunshine and vitamin D, the day is beautiful the weeds in the yard are growing, why not mow the back yard?" There was no ggod reason not too; so, I did!
Now, I have been doing intense water aerobics since I last mowed the yard and we have worked on abs with weights in the water. One would think that I would have been prepared for this mowing season. WRONG! My arms are sore and I can imagine that they will be again tomorrow.
The lesson from this? Don't just do water aerobics and expect my abs to be in shape this time next year. I will need to work on my abs out of the water too!
I hope that I remember this lesson next eyar!

Water Aerobics Instructor or The Grim Reaper?

Monday, March 31, 2014

Tonight Yolanda, the regular instructor for Monday water aerobics class instructor, was possessed by the Grim Reaper. I am convinced of it!
You see, Yolanda always gets in the water with the class but tonight, dresses all in black workout clothes, she stayed on the deck. Now that is a big clue that something is up. NO brightly colored, flowered bathing suit and no water shoes were to be found on her body, just those black workout pants and shirt and athletic shoes. Then she announced that she wasn't getting in the water. Yolanda never does that!
Now, the music, which she usually brings, was different. Every piece had a beat that started a bit fast and then worked up to very fast! Oh no! There are water weights, which we usually use, but where were the lighter ones? Does this mean that everyone has to take a heavier weight unless, of course, one was already at the top weight?
Yes, the Grim Reaper had taken over Yolanda's body because I know that whoever was there, that looked like her, was trying to kill us!
I hope that I can move tomorrow!
