Do You ever wonder? And other things.

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

I wonder about a lot of things. Over the weekend when a squirrel almost ran in front of our truck, I wonder what the life expectancy of him or her would be without cars. I looked it up it 12.6 for females and 8.6 for males. You would think I could find more constructive things to think about!
Yesterday My co-worker went to one the banks and they have a fund raiser going on they are selling candy bars for something. She got each of us one. Now the challenge is to see how long it can stay on my desk before I eat it. At least My bank is selling small stuffed animals, not something to eat!! emoticon
I hate going to funerals (I know no one likes going to a funeral) but I just do not handle it well. Since My Sister has been sick and off work She can not go today. So I have to go by Myself. I wish there was a way out of this. But these people were so good to My Mom (while she was alive) and to My Sister while she lived in that neighborhood with Mom. I sent flowers but it just does not seem like enough.
So much life to live and not enough time!!!!! Everyone in Spark Land please take good care of Yourself and do not take life for granted. Enjoy every moment! Tell everyone You love them, do not judge and be Happy!! I Love You All!!!!!!! emoticon Susan

    I learned a trick in Naturally Slim for making that chocolate bar last longer.
emoticon
Instead of taking a bite and chewing just let it sit in your mouth until it's completely dissolved. Move it around, switch sides. Make it your goal to slather the entire inside of your mouth with the chocolate. I've been amazed at how much less chocolate I eat WITHOUT even feeling deprived.

When you move it all over and let it dissolve slowly you can really get EVERY bit of flavor out of it so you eat a lot less.

Sorry about the funeral. It stinks!! I'll be thinking of you!!

    Time is short for all of us and we just need to live each day to the fullest. I know it meant a lot to the family to have you there at the funeral. I don't like to go to those either but sometimes it is just the right thing to do.

Hope you have a good night's sleep!!!!

Many Hugs!

    I'm sure your presence meant a lot to the family. It's a duty no one enjoys; so kudos to you for doing this.

I hope things start to get better soon.

    Hopefully the candy bar is small! I have been known to pretend I ate something given to me and ditch it so I wouldn't.

    I'm sure you will be fine at the funeral. I think it is important to let the family know just how important their loved one was to you & your family. It does help ease their sadness.
Bless you for going.

    You are right. We never know when our time is up so we need to live eat day as it was our last. My prayers are with you going to the funeral. You will never know how much it will mean to them seeing you there!!

    Good luck with that candy bar. Can you put it in a drawer so it's out of sight? I have one in mine... My husband bought it for me one evening, I took it to work and promptly stuck it in my snack drawer... under a napkin. When I go into my snack drawer, I sometimes forget it's there!

My sympathies for your family's loss. Bless you for showing up today. emoticon

It's Really Monday!!!!!

Monday, September 26, 2011

Got to work and had been here a little while when a Wonderful Friend and Neighbor of My Mom (when She was alive) and My Sister (when She lived with Mom) called She wanted to let us know that last Friday Her found Her Husband (really great Guy) dead of a massive heart attack. So sad. They are great people. He will be missed! Since My Sister had been ill again and off work She cannot go to the funeral, so I will go to represent Our Family. So Sad!
I did not feel very good to start with. Back and intestinal. Probably to much junk food over the weekend!! But I will do what I always do put on My Big Girl Panties and deal with it.
I hope everyone in Spark Land had as good weekend as I did. Now back to reality. Let's all make every minute of every day the best we can make! Enjoy!!! Love Y'All!!! emoticon

Good Sunday!!

Sunday, September 25, 2011

Got up and around, went to breakfast. Got back home and put the lake fall decorations. I will put some on my Saprk page. We got Home from the lake and I started cleaning in the guest bedroom! Took some empty boxes to the dumpster. Clean off the desk so I could put my Halloween stuff there. Then I went with DH He is looking for a Mustang convertible. He found one and we went to see it! It had a wrecked title, it started out life red and after the wreck they sort of fixed it and painted it bright yellow. It had a lot of dents and such and would need new tires and so on. So He is still looking. We ate a place called the Saltgrass Steak House not bad! We then went to the store to get food for DH's lunches. Got back home and now I am Sparking and doing laundry. I also water flowers and cleaned up the kitchen. No wonder I am tired! emoticon Everyone have a great Sunday evening and a great start to the week!!!!! Love Y'All emoticon Susan

It is Frrrrrrrrrrrrrriday!!!! Let's make It Count!!!

Friday, September 23, 2011

It is the first day of FALL! Here in central Oklahoma it is a Sunny crisp 55. A great change from Our hot summer. Lots of New Fall Challenges starting! emoticon Let make it count!
I ask My Boss if He ever had crazy people living in His head! Some days I think I do. He had Me pull titles on vehicles to get rid of yesterday. I did that, made copies. Then I talk with the ranch Manager and got more info on some of the ranch trucks. Boss and I talk some and I started looking for one particular truck title and could not find it, so I told Him I would look today on the insurance to see when We took it off. I did that this morning-it was one I pulled and took off yesterday! emoticon At least today is Friday! Enjoy!!!!!
Love Y'All!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon Susan
