ONE THING AFTER ANOTHER….

Standard

Looks like March here will be going out like a lamb.. as tomorrow
it will be near 60.  NO trace of that icky white stuff
anywhere around here.  Smile Boy are we happy about that! Smile

Monday was a get things done day again. I found my
water softener in the basement nearly out of salt.
NEVER in over 10 years has it done that. We had it
repaired but obviously he must have reset it for
much more often than what we need.  That will be fixed this
week for sure. We sure don’t need THAT much soft water!!
The garage light came on and the door stayed down.
I reset it and darned if it did it again. Someone around here
has something mechanical that’s messing with our door opener.
I can’t stand the thought of it open all night long..light on for
someone or THING to get in there. I sure won’t be sleeping well
tonight thanks to some wise guy with a urge to make life miserable
for others. Confused
#############################################################
I cut my pointer finger open on a serrated bread knife.  Owwwwwwww!
Sure is hard to keep it clean and
dry. Had to wear rubber gloves almost all day long. But I think to
myself..it is nothing compared to others troubles and I am
grateful for that tiny reminder.  It will heal, others are sometimes
not that fortunate. Thinking  The news stated tonight that one family in
4 here in Michigan has a person or persons out of a job. NOW THAT
is scary.. They are talking we will be seeing those tent cities here
this summer. Can’t be helped as so many are out of work here
in this state. So much here depends on the auto industry and we all
know that is in BIG TROUBLE..

ON THE WHACKY  SIDE…
TODAY I saw a woman on a show selling a woman’s shaver. Now that
alone wasn’t that earth shattering, but before I changed the channel
SHE SHAVED HER WHOLE FACE with it. This was a nice looking woman.
I could not believe what I was watching. WHY would a woman shave
her whole face–forehead and all ??Surprised  Shocking to me that is for sure.
Guess we will never know why some people do things. It just seemed
a little weird to me!

WELL HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT TUESDAY!!

COMPUTER SURROUNDINGS WEEK

Standard

This is where I do all my blogging. My little corner of the world. It is a room
upstairs in my house. It is the smallest room in my house with exception of the
bathroom. I share the room with an extra guest bed. The table is pretty
bare just now as I have not begun to move things around lately. I have been
too busy with other projects to give it much time. MIRACLE’S monitor sits
on a board, but not just any board. This board was shipped all the way from
Ca. when I moved. It was a bread board my grandmother used to make
biscuits and such. I used to use it for that too, but I needed something to stablize
the monitor and it fit the bill. The train that runs nearby shakes the table so
that I have to have a strong base to withstand all that. Miracle’s new printer sits
below the table on a stool and is pushed back out of the way when I am not
using it. The tables were bought at Sam’s Club and are adjustable to anyone’s
comfort zone. The smaller table can be pushed out of the way when it is not in
use. The whole thing is totally portable and can be moved very easily.  I have
spent many hours in this corner.. surfing the net, talking on the messenger,and
space-walking in the past 4 years. I have enjoyed every minute of it!! Smile  This is a
close up of my desktop background…
                        IT IS SO TRUE!!!
##########################################################################
We had rain, sleet, snow, wind and sun over the weekend. I am grateful none
of it was severe. I keep those who are out of their homes in my thoughts and
prayers. Seems mother nature is very busy this spring and can’t make up
her mind. March has been a very eventful month in more ways than one.
Mom seems to be on the mend, and we are very relieved about that.
I slept nearly 10 hours Saturday night, and feel like a new person.
Catching up is a good thing.  Hope to be catching up with a lot of you
really soon.
 
HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT WEEK!!

RELAX… IT’S THE WEEEKEND

Standard

The weekend schedule is always different around here. Some we are really
busy and some we are bored to pieces. Some are completely a working
weekend and others are just for fun.  Some I get to watch a Nascar race
and some I don’t. Some I get to sleep in on those days and others NOT.
Mom being sick has changed the whole feeling of the weekend now.
We have a whole new "routine" to get used to. It sure is hard changing.
I got to thinking that even if the routine changes you can still MAKE
time to RELAX somehow. A simple thing like taking a walk or
reading a book could be a new change. I am going to try it and see
how it goes.  I hope I find something that works. Smile Hope yours is
relaxing also.

The Dr. Office called today and told us they scheduled an appointment for Mom
with a Cardiologist in another town. PROBLEM IS.. the Dr. didn’t inform us
they were going to do that.Baring teeth They wanted an 82 year old sick person to be in
the office at 8:10 in the morning, that’s after driving at least 30 minutes to get
there. I was shocked.Surprised I informed them that HAD WE KNOWN  we could have told
them that she doesn’t even GET UP before that hour and IN NO WAY could we
get there. I told the lady that I could have saved them a lot of trouble if they
had ONLY ASKED US about it. She had to call back the office and reschedule
the appt for a later one. This made our wait to see the new dr. at least
2 weeks LONGER..  Boy.. talk about confusing. WISH they would get their
act together. Confused

Well not much more to report from this little corner of the county.
 
HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT SATURDAY!!

CONFUSION & NEWS

THERE seems to be some confusion on the COMPUTER SURROUNDINGS
week.  YOU POST THE PICTURE on YOUR BLOG ENTRY
ON MONDAY or any day next week. NO one has to SEND
me any photo.  YOU Give it the title  COMPUTER SURROUNDINGS
and just post a picture of your work area, or favorite place
you like to use (with a laptop)  on YOUR SPACE.
Simple as that.  I look forward to  seeing a lot of new
surroundings STARTING MONDAY.

THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS
for those folks along the river banks in NORTH DAKOTA.
They have been sandbagging for almost a week trying to
shore up the banks and hoping and praying it won’t get any
higher than 41 feet high. The levis they bulit go to 43 ft. I remember
all too well the flooding that occurred before and the devistation
they all had there. Seems sad all the hard work and then one place
will break open and so much will be lost.
Terrible storms and bad weather are predicted for so much
of our country over the next few days. I am so glad we are
not in for 6 inches of snow like the Chicago area. We are
in a risk area for Saturday night into Sunday though.
Spring in Michigan anything can happen. We had 8 inches of
snow last year on March 22nd. I sure am hoping we don’t have
anything nearly as bad this year. Confused

HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT FRIDAY!!

NEWS…Computer Surroundings Week…

Standard

        **WHAT MY MONITOR SEES**
 
  Computer  COMPUTER SURROUNDINGS WEEK.  Computer
We will begin on MONDAY.. March 30 and continue through the first week of April
to give the people who do not post daily  time to participate.
 
In case you are new and are unaware–
Computer Surroundings Week is when we all take a photo of where we blog. 
It is always fun to catch a glimpse inside all our dwellings and see how each other blogs.
You don’t have to clean  up or anything if you don’t want to… it is totally up to the individual.
Even if your computer surrroundings haven’t changed at all in the past year.. newcomers will be interested
in seeing your computer “space”  or “surroundings”. I really don’t know how many years this
tradition has been going on, but I know I have participated at least two times.
Miracle is new this year and so I will be taking a new picture to show off.  Hope you all have
fun and join in.  Computer

Today was different for a change. We got a visit from my niece and she stayed
awhile and even made a batch of Chocolate Chip cookies. MOM was in heaven.
She really misses her granddaughters a lot and just seeing her raised her spirits.
Her appetite too, she ate THREE cookies while they were warm and wanted
more. Wink Her diet is so hard to stay on a lot but I told her TODAY she could
eat them and enjoy herself. Her blood pressure seemed a lot better with the
new meds. I continue to keep my fingers crossed.
#############################################################################
Gas went to 2.09 here!!  I sure hated to see that, but spring approaches and there
isn’t much we can do but deal with it. I heard a report on the news today that some
branches of the POST OFFICE may be closing.
The Postal Service says it is trying to save $100 million annually through a series of
measures that include closing offices and eliminating positions.
Postal district-level administrative positions are being cut by 15 percent,
or about 1,400 people. Another 1,400 mail processing supervisors and
management positions are being eliminated at almost 400 facilities nationwide.
WELL WELL.. the mail is slow as it is.. and pretty darn unreliable these days
in my book so.. now they want to FIRE or layoff people and make it even
MORE hard for us to get the mail at a reasonable time. Talk about a big
mess waiting to happen..  Confused

HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT DAY!!
