Kids say the darndest things

on September 18, 2008 - 3:48pm

Greetings to all,

No, I have not forgotten how to blog.

OK, we all know that kids have a way of saying the most out rageous of things at the most perfect of times. Today I heard the most silliest thing from a little girl who could not have been more than 3 or 4 years old.

So I am at the register helping out a customer and next to me is a little girl whining that she has to sit in her stroller. Some parents don't realize that just 5 minutes in a store is too long for some kids. Get a clue people, don't take them out if ya want peace while your shopping. So here is this mom looking through some clothes and obviously getting frustrated that her child has no patients. Can't really blame the child. But the little girl continues to whine and the mom finally speaks up, speaks to her and says....."stop acting like a ..."...never finishing that sentence. Us parents have all been tempted to add a few colorful words at the end of that thought from time to time. But as this mom said that, the little girl managed to finish the sentence with her own answer. She looks up at her mom and replies....." a psyco?"..... I just could not help but laugh hysterically at the comment as it had been something totally unexpected from this cute little girl. It kind of makes ya wonder what goes on in her house.

Needless to say, it made the day a little less stressed. It is amazing that the simple words of a child can change the way a day is going. Of course seeing this happened at the end of my shift didn't hurt either.....lolol.

Anyway, work had been the same ole craziness the past week or so. The hours have dropped and finding myself working jobs that are meant for 3 or 4 people. Not sure it is good that suddenly more responsibility is being thrown upon me. Its great that I have been there long enough to do other things, but it also means more pressure on me. The last few weeks, have had certain projects forced on me by people that should know better, more peeing in the fitting room incidents, and of course those customers who are never satisfied with anything and have to complain over the most stupid details....I have a list. LOLOL! But I still go on with my job happily as I know I am lucky to even have a job. Even knowing that other stores have closed down and the threat of mine closing still lurks. Count your blessings while you have them I say!

Anyway, its been a week to say the least. I have missed doing my blogs, but frankly, have not really had energy to write anything lately. But will when I can.... I hope you all have a great and wonderful up coming weekend. (((hugsss))))

My tip for you all today is to be nice to your little psycos while you have them! They grow up way to fast and become BIG psycos. But then some of us really never grow up at all.

Take Care,

Psycos are Loved

A trip to the docs office

on September 14, 2008 - 12:41am

Office

An 85-year-old man went to his doctor's office to get a sperm count. The doctor gave the man a jar and said, "Take this jar home and bring back a semen sample tomorrow."

The next day the 85-year-old man reappeared at the doctor's office and gave him the jar, which was as clean and empty as on the previous day. The doctor asked what happened and the man explained: "Well, doc, it's like this - First I tried with my right hand, but nothing. Then I tried with my left hand, but still nothing.

Then I asked my wife for help. She tried with her right hand, then her left, still nothing. She tried with her mouth, first with the teeth in, then with her teeth out, and still nothing. We even called up Arleen, the lady next door and she tried too, first with both hands, then an armpit and she even tried squeezin' it between her knees, but still nothing." The doctor was shocked! "You asked your neighbor?" The old man replied,

"Yep. And no matter what we tried, we still couldn't get the jar open."

HaHa - What were you thinking?

I am still here

on September 11, 2008 - 6:22pm

Hey ya all,

Its been about a week since I last wrote, but to tell ya the truth I haven't been up to writing anything at all these days. Have had such a depressing week that my spirit had left me there for a while. I guess the thing that was on my mind the most was that hadn't talked to my sweetie for a good number of days and I had been really worried. When you live 3000 miles apart from the person you love, not hearing from the other can really make a persons mind go wild. Believe me, I had every worse fear playing in my head. Well, got a message on my phone yesterday from him and part of me was relieved, but most of me went scared beyond my belief. I was scared the most because no matter what happened, there was nothing I could do to help him being so far away. It turns out he was taken to the hospital on Monday by ambulance while working due to having chest pains. And as most men do, they try to blow things off like it is nothing. Thank god for persistent co workers. I suppose the first thing that comes to mind when having chest pains is a heart attack. I probably would have thought that too. But it turns out it was due to a low heart rate. Yeah, like that makes me feel any better.* roll eyes*.... From what he tells me, he has had this problem for awhile now and that he was OK. I am sorry, but it is still something to worry about no matter what he tells me.What I think bothers me the most about all this is while he was there, no one even bothered to call me and let me know what was happening. What would have happened if something major did happen? Would I ever know? Would anyone even cared how I felt about it? I feel as if I was left out on something important and I am not sure if I should be mad at him for it or just let it go as a tiny over sight. I tell ya, men sometimes have no clue as to how a woman feels. A little information can make all the difference. No matter how mad I think I should be, I just can't be because I know this was not an easy situation for him to be in. The past few months he has had a broken toe, dealing with carpel tunnel, and now this. That doesn't even include the cancer scare he has had to deal with from years before.It is hard to be upset with a person who has had so many set backs. It is just another reason why I worry, cause I am always afraid what else is next. He is a sweet man, he doesn't deserve all the pain he has had to suffer. No one does. I really hate being so far because there is not a dam thing I can do to help him. Knowing him the way I do, he wouldn't take my help anyway. Only because he is a MAN, and is VERY STUBBORN! I just wish I knew how to be more helpful to him then I am now. I can't stand that I can't do anything. Sure, telling how I feel about him and being there for him may seem like a lot, but for him, I wanna do so much more. If he'd only let me. So please, even though you don't know him, keep good thoughts in your prayers....The power of a prayer can work wonders!

Today marks the anniversary of 9/11..... will always be a day that most of us will never forget. God bless all those effected. (((hugs)))

Hope everyone has a great weekend ahead...Mine is spent working, but what else is new. Thats all my life seems to be right now. Kinds of sucks too. Hopefully will see more fun days in the near future...... What is life if you can't enjoy yourself too?

Take Care,

You are Loved

Remembering Steve Irwin

on August 31, 2008 - 11:54am

It has been two years (september 4th) since we lost a great friend to this planet.It is still hard to believe it has been that long or that he is even gone. Steve Irwin did so much to conserve wildlife and conservation and he will always be missed. I never knew Steve personally, but like so many, felt like he was family. I hope everyone remembers the great things this man did for our planet. Not too often does a person come along who really made a difference to this world.

This date stands out for me for another reason too. Two years ago You are loved aired on FOJG for the first time. It aired on the 3rd. Ever since then, when I hear Josh sing that, I cannot help but think of Steve and his family.

We will always remember you Steve......

"Fly me up
To Where you are
Beyond the distant star
I wish upon tonight
To see you smile
If only for awhile
To know you're there
A breath away's not far
To Where You are"

a WOMANS ULTIMATE FANTASY

on August 30, 2008 - 2:14pm

Greetings to all. Sorry I have not blogged in a few days but have been feeling pretty crappy health wise. These dang allergies have kept me from doing anything, so needless to say I have some house work to catch up on. It sucks being a grown up. But I did come across this little fantasy and all I can say is how true, how true...lololol!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A Woman's Ultimate Fantasy

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A woman was sitting at a bar enjoying a cocktail after work one night, when the bar door opened and the most gorgeous hunk of a man she had ever seen entered.

He was tall, muscular, and handsome, with thick dark hair and beautiful, sparkling brown eyes, and his every movement was so masculine and sensuous that the woman could not help but stare.

The man noticed that he was the object of the woman's rapt attention, and with a sly, sexy smile, approached her. Blushing, she prepared to apologize for staring, but he leaned close and whispered in her ear.

I'll do anything," he whispered in a deep, soft voice. "Anything, absolutely anything you want, anything you have ever fantasized, for fifty dollars. There's just one condition..."

Trembling with anticipation, the woman asked him the condition. The man said, "You have to tell me what you want me to do in just three words."

The women gazed into his hypnotic eyes, considering the proposition, then reached into her handbag and took out fifty dollars. She scribbled her address on a napkin, folded it around the cash, and pressed it into his waiting hand. She leaned over and whispered into his ear...

"Clean... my... house."
