Walking with Dinosaurs

Saturday, July 31, 2010

We saw the show today - WOW!!!! It was truly amazing. These dinosaurs were so lifelike. It was the best show. So cool.

This is the first time I have tried to load a picture to my blog - hope it works. I don't know how to make it the right direction, either. I took more pictures, but I don't know how to send them to my computer so I can put them here. Oh, well. Just imagine seeing all kinds of dinosaurs "live & in person, living & breathing & walking & roaring". That was this show!

  I've taken our nieces to two different dinosaur shows...but not this one. It came to
San Antonio...but I didn't see it. I bet it is really awesome. So glad you got to go,.

    I saw it this spring with my daughter. I was surprised by how good it was--I enjoyed it as much as she did. It was worth the money in my opinion

I know I am supposed to be very happy that I have a job...and believe me, I am. However, the office manager, Carol and I are the only office staff...so with Carol so ill and out of the office almost 2 weeks already - this is tough stuff.

I work for a roofing company and I really do love the job & the people I work with. But, I haven't learned how to do everything yet and the phones are simply unbelievably busy and I am trying to answer all the calls plus handle the mail & the checks and the roofing estimates that have to be proofread and sent out plus writing up the workorders so the guys can go out & do the work plus............well, you get the picture.

Anyhow, I just wanted to vent some of my stress here. Thanks for listening if you got this far!

    Oh, Judy...it sounds like a cauldron at work - that or a pressure cooker, I'm not sure which! I really feel for you! I hope Carol is back to help you very soon. There's a flip side to the gratitude many feel right now that they've got a job: Businesses, if they're not cutting back staff, are usually not adding to their personnel right now. So those who are employed are so often overburdened, as you are. I hope it lets up soon! - Sandi emoticon

  Sorry it is so hectic, Judy. With you practically JUST STARTING there sure adds to the stress. It's not like you know everything like the back of your hand. Hope your co-worker comes back soon. I sure hope they appreciate all you are doing. Bet it's nice to walk through your door each evening and just sit down with Cliff and the furr babies. Hang in there. mary

    You just vent away and I hope that will help. You are really overwhelmed right now. I hope Carol will be able to come back soon at least part-time.

As busy as you are I'm sure your days go by fast. Have a nice evening the weekend is almost here.

4th of July

Saturday, July 03, 2010

I just want to wish every single one of my Spark People friends the happiest 4th of July. I love this holiday with all it's patriotism and parades and family get-togethers and fireworks. It is one of my all-time favorite days.

I love to watch the local parade - they do it up great every single year. I also love to view the fireworks that my local park district puts on along with a fun concert every year.

Hope everyone has a great, happy, healthy and fun day!

Petting Stingrays

Saturday, June 26, 2010

I don't know if any of you have ever had the pleasure of petting a stingray...but what a neat experience it is! My husband & I went to Brookfield Zoo today. They have a special exhibit going on right now through Labor Day where you can actually stick your hands into the pool and touch the stingrays! It is SO COOL! What fun!!! I was touching so many of them. They were swimming past often. Some of them actually slowed down so I could really get to touch them. They are a little bit slimy feeling, but really very smooth. They have very long thin tails, too! It was great.

We also spent time at the Great Bear Grotto and got to see bison & a bald eagle & polar bears, including one who came right up to the glass viewing window - I might right up there! That was really fun.

We went through the butterfly exhibit which is also only there through Labor Day. The butterflies flit around freely - sometimes even landing on you. None of them landed on us this time around, but we sure did have fun sitting on a bench just watching them. It's amazing how relaxing that can be. We got to see them sucking out the pollen from some of the flowers.

    You must live in or near Chicag0 (because of the reference to Brookfield Zoo). Well, we must be almost neighbors-I live in Iowa! Thanks for visiting my spark page-my youngest dtr also has 2 ferrets and just loves them!

    Judy, you and Cliff really know how to have a great time! I have never had the pleasure of petting a stingray, but I'm sure I'd be rather awestruck by the experience if I did! We used to have a petting zoo (used to... emoticon...) very close by, and the bison were such marvelous creatures to behold! But I have never seen anything like the butterfly exhibit you described. That must be an unforgettable experience! - Sandi emoticon

    I have never petted a stingray, however I love to go to zoos. My favorite animals are the penquins. The Omaha zoo has a great penquin exhibit I have only been there once, but sat and watched the penquins for a long long time.

It sounds like you had a wonderful day.
