I don't think it's fair to the people who use the jogging track!

Sunday, February 12, 2012

I live in a suburb. In the middle of the suburb, we have a park. It has a field in the middle with trees around it with a jogging track around the field. Lot's of people in this neighbourhood use the jogging track to jog, run or walk for exercise.

Only there are this group of boys who use the field in the middle to play football. And they don't care who they hit with their footballs! I've been hit in the head like 5 to 6 times in total, not counting other parts of my body. It hurts and it's such a shock to my system!

There I am, just walking and minding my own business when this football slams into my head! Can you imagine how distressing and dangerous it is. What if an elderly lady or gentleman is hit in the head with their football and passes out!? Who's going to be responsible?!

I feel that they boys are not blind and should use their eyes to make sure no one is around before kicking the football. This way, everyone can use the park, as it is, I dare not walk in the park anymore! It just isn't fair!

    Who is control of the park under? Is it under your town supervision, or dept. of parks, or who? At least advise them what is going on, just in case someone does get hurt, and then they won't be able to say they didn't know anything about it. Send a letter, keeping a copy for yourself, call, and record the day, time, and who you talked too, whatever you can do. Do you know any of the boys so you could talk to him or them, and ask them to be a little cautious when people are walking? Is there a pond near-by so when you get hit with the ball again, you can throw it in there??? Good luck!!! Someone has to begin to teach kids respect because too many of them aren't getting taught at home. emoticon

The title of your blog caught my attention. Sorry to read about your problem, I don't know if I'd have the courage to catch the football and keep it but I like the suggestion. I hope things change because I'm sure you aren't the only person who has been hit by the ball. Maybe posting a sign on the track or just avoiding it is the best possible solution. Anyway. good luck and have a better week.

    I really feel for you. Parents these days are not raising their kids to be aware of anyone except themselves. I don't suppose there's anything that will get these kids to change... you'll just have to be more aware, when they're out there playing football. (At least they're outside playing, not inside doing video games. Or busy vandalizing anything.)

    I understand totally. In this time frame, kids are very self centered and think only of themselves. The only thing I can say is
to be doubly aware when you walk.

    I feel for you sweetie, but the kids these days have no respect for themselves let alone how to respect others (((hugs))) xx

Drat the rain!

Saturday, February 11, 2012

It was a nice and breezy evening! I got a short walk in, about 20minutes or so when it started raining. I ran to the gazebo to wait it out. But the rain just kept getting heavier and showed no signed of stopping!

I had to borrow an umbrella to get home and then take another umbrella (my own) from home, then I had to trek back to the gazebo to return the borrowed umbrella!

I love the breeze but I wish that the rain had come later! It rained till it was dark, I didn't feel like walking in the dark. I know there was a breeze because it was actually about to rain but can't God let the breezy evening last a little longer before making it pour with rain! Some ppl need to exercise! Sheesh!

An expensive taste is torture to the wallet and the soul!

Friday, February 10, 2012

I have very expensive taste! Did I tell you that?

Yes I do! When faced with jewellery or anything for that matter, my eyes will zero in on the most expensive one without knowing it! I'm serious! I have the dubious 'talent' to pick out the most expensive thing on hand!

This make my life a living hell! As I'm not rich, just getting by. I have desires for all these things I can't afford! I'll just have to remind myself, that these material things are pointless, and I can't bring them with me when I die!

But Oh! If only I had like 10,000USD a month as shopping money! Don't you just wish!

This will be my last time in 2 months!

Thursday, February 09, 2012

Ok! That's it! No more window shopping for 2 months after my next trip next week. I went to a doctor's appointment today. Then I took a bus to the big mall, Mid Valley Mall. There, at Evita Peroni, I saw the hair clip I was after for so long. They only have it in Evita Peroni, I've looked everywhere and I couldn't find it!

They come in 3 lovely colours! I was so tempted to get all 3 but I'm contenting myself with 2, 2's plenty when it comes to Evita, as they're so expensive. After I buy these 2 hair clips next week, I'm laying low for a while, yup, no more window shopping, I don't thing my purse can stand it anymore.

After this purchase, it's back to saving money. Unless I need to buy necessities like toiletries, other than that, I'm not spending anymore! I've spent enough this month!

    I'm glad you talked to your doctor and that it's on his radar. Sounds like he is understanding at least to some extent.

    I have a better Idea! Save all your 50s! Then you'll have an even bigger nest egg!

I actually met my nephrologist (kidney doctor) and told him that 2kgs or less is torture and impossible! He said he understood but said I had to keep trying. As for the increase in meds, he said there's nothing much I can do about it.

    Here is a money saving tip: Don't ever spend your ones. (or smallest paper money). Save them all and you will have a nice nest egg in no time. I've saved over $1,200 so far.

I'm having another go at it......

Wednesday, February 08, 2012

but I'm not very hopeful. Yes, I will talk to the doctor the next time he comes. Otherwise I'll just have to accept that I don't have enough willpower to withstand my thirst! The hot wheather doesn't help either!

    Darling, I know it is very difficult, but may be you can try some sort of meditational technique to divert your mind. My dad went thru something similar, and he too had a tough time with his thirst. So I know how you are feeling. I love you sweetheart. emoticon

    Don't hold back when you see the Dr, be totally truthful with what is going on and how you have been feeling! I know this is very hard, but you can journey through...ask for help! You should have the support of your medical team!
Good Luck! emoticon
