ignoring negativity..

Thursday, January 13, 2011

read the guest blogger today and was remembering how I used to get sucked into it at work,no more, I just do not respond to anybody gossiping or whining or being negative, I just stand there and stare at them,, they stop...

    NIX the negativity! It isn't productive & brings everyone down! Good for you for hitting the "ignore" button! You're the smart one in the bunch!

    You have that right LINDA, no need for negative conversation, there is enough negative out there so we have to stay positive as long as we can.

HUGS , hope you are warmer today.
We had 15 inches yesterday and it was a blizzard. Today our streets are all cleared for us. DH and I did 3 driveways, ours and the neighbors. She works nights so we did it for her. GOOD cardio for us. HUGS Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

For all the people who need our thoughts, prayers, who struggle with their health concerns, or others health, for those who feel despair, those who are alone, I pray for all of them, knowing they will get their needs met, not on their timetable.. Feeling grateful for my warm robe, home, nice car, medicines, and food,, we are all a meal, a paycheck, a crisis away from losing things we cherish,,, be grateful for what He has allowed you to have!

tuesday

Tuesday, December 21, 2010

Never a dull moment: got a call from the water department last evening: a water main burst two houses away, and they had to shut the water off today,, what a mess, but fortunately, I was at work for the whole thing,, neighbors next door have a mud/ice pit in their front yard!!

Last night I dreamed that I was at The Grand Floridian basking away in their spa, being massaged by Vito, the magic-fingered Italian masseusse, when the power went out, water got shut off, Vito ran screaming like a girl, out of the spa, leaving me there with my (pride) hangng out,,
Big handsome guy runs in, whisks me off to the private sauna, starts massaging my feet, whispering sweet nothings in my ear, and all I heard was.......................................
......................................
......................................
......................................
...............
BUZZZZZZZZZZ!!BUZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ!! Alarm clock blaring in my ear!! Four A.M.!! Time to get up and ready for work!!
On a brighter note, it DID get p to 29 degrees today, so that was really close to that sauna!!!

new furniture!

Thursday, November 18, 2010

We went to the furniture store after visiting mom,,
I bought a new chest of drawers and double bed, mattress and box springs for Kristy.. her old bed fell apart, it was old and a hand-me-down form my sister-in-law and brother-in-law back in 1980!!
Timing is bad but gotta get her off my Lodge futon and back in her room!! Beautiful bed and dresser,, nicer than mine!!
Early Christmas gift to her!!
Of course, being the bargain shopper that I am, I got $100 off the mattress, $200 off the bed, and no sales tax.. promo from store if you spent a certain amount!!

BUT THE BEST PART OF THE WHOLE DEAL IS........................................
......................................
......................................
......................................
......................................
......................................
......................................
......................................
......................................
.................................................
Guess what I got free!!
I got a real jen-you-wine SERTA sheep!! He is the blue-eyed one that talks on tv!!!
I jokingly asked the salesguy when he was going to give me one of those sheep ,, he walked to the back and got me one!! They had a big pink one on a mattress, but he was not a take out one!!
MIne is so cute!! I am going to put him on one of my posts(I have a four poster bed)

    Way to go Lin! Give Kristy your old bed and mattress, and you keep the new one.....No, OK, but you are keeping the sheep, aren't you. They are so funny....
