Friday has arrived finally.

Friday, May 18, 2012

Turns out that Terry went fishing with his cousin, Tom, on Houghton Lake, about 75 miles from here.. his dad who is 90, had been told the day before, but forgot,,, Terry is in his 60's, but due to a med his mom took prenatally, has brain damage.. he cannot drive or do anything stressful, but can read an encyclopedia cover to cover in about a day or so..

I feel like this past week was easy, but I am physically sore from all the cardio...

I have really been drinking the water,, am working on over 72 ounces,, will probably drink another quart or two before bedtime.. I am so glad I love water..

Not sure what I am going to do this weekend besides yard work..

    Good thing on the water. It`s surprising how once you get used to drinking it every day you really need to drink it and miss it if you don`t have it.

Early day at work,, not much going on here,, workplace just phoned me to tell me that the 95 year old dad of a disabled man that works there called the workplace to say the man is missing!

I am best friend with his sister, called her cell, voice mail since she is at work,,,
I think the old guy fell asleep and Terry walked down to the party store for a pop or snack.. it is not bad enough I finally corralled my mother, am sitting here doing yet more V.A. paperwork for her, now I am in a manhunt for somebody!
Life is a JOB!

    I know what you mean. I was so tired last night that, when I woke up about 3 am and needed to go to the bathroom, I simply turned over and slept until 6:30, bathroom then back to bed and slept til 9:30. That is something I never do. Just must have been exhausted from Sunday's trip to Philadelphia to the Cancer Center for my DH and back home yesterday. All that sitting made me tired!!! Of course I did walk the treadmill and swim in the hotel pool Sunday and Monday and LOVED it!!

After work today DD and I went for a hike on the Tobico trails.. she took more pics, hoping to see the cygnets, but only saw the cob. The mom swan is still on the nest,,We are thinking they are hatched, but not yet ready for water. We did see some fish, a turtle sunning itself on a lily pad, some birds,,
My legs are bothering me today for some reason, so I had to actually stop and rest a couple times. Usually I am way ahead of her, never slowing down..It is very hot out there,, we did see a huge sailboat about ten miles out,,

We surely got in our 10,000 steps.
I had lots of business calls to make, changing insurance agents from one part of the state to the other.. I told them I was dropping all of my coverage unless they gave me the agent I want. He is about one mile from my home,, the one they chose for me is about 150 miles from here,,

Anybody nowadays can get their needs met if they are persistent. There is WAY too much competition to refuse a customer an easy compliance.
I work too hard for my money to let somebody else dictate how or where I will spend it.
I got what I wanted, everybody was very nice and I will continue to recommend them as long as we both get our needs met.
Simple formula; some people are just too lazy to take the time to go for it. I may be a lot of things, but lazy or stupid is not one of them,, I did not graduate cum laude, by standing in a corner scratching my hynee...

We need to demand better goods, services, treatment in general to keep American goods the ones people are willing to pay for. Pride...

    The squeaky wheel gets the grease . . . Good for you!
I'm with you on the Made in the USA for our goods. The stuff made overseas is cheap crap! And there's absolutely NO QUALITY CONTROL. I was over there in Korea for 3 years - just breathing because of all the crap in the air was a chore!

    WAY TO GO for sticking to your guns and getting the agent right next door. I love your attitude!!!

    You got that right, friend. And no you're not lazy. No idea where you got that from.

    I am so with you LINDA.
When I saw the end of a toothpick in my food, I did not complain to get a free meal. I did it so they were made aware of the possible consequences of their actions.
A pointed piece of wood like a tooth pick could well pierce the esophagus or anywhere else for that matter.
If I find a problem with an item I call the 800 number and discuss it with them. If it is a reputable company I use, I often decline to participate in the giveaway thing. I tell them I want to be able to give constructive criticism in order to keep the product superior.
If I get a freebie every time I think it reduces my credibility. If it is something I am really disappointed in then I will accept it and be sure to let them know I am a dissatisfied consumer.

Great attitude LINDA.
USA made and nothing from China right now till they get their act together. I ask my Pharmacist if any of my drugs or medications come from India or China. I want my drugs to be FDA approved by US standards.

  Good for you, companies have to "buck up". What ever happened to the customer is always right?
