Monday, March 19, 2012

I am headed out to the doctor's office to get some pain control and see what is what. I have not been to him since he did my EKG for my surgery in Sept.

    I was looking to discover what the Dr had said on your medical issues . I read the earlier blog and found this one instead. We had a number of appointments and we had to go for New Balance shoes in Skowhegan Maine so i did very little sparking yesterday. I am trying to catch up.
I watched the ships come over the road in the Massena lock it was fascinating As soon as I get over the mountains we will go to see a spark friend there and just maybe another in NY State i love to do that. (((((HUGS)))
now I will get to today's Marsh blog HUGS Pat in Maine . emoticon emoticon

    Sorry about your pain, I am doing better after a long time I hope it will be like that for you some time soon.
We still have cold wet weather and I am hoping it will warm up soon. I played with my photos all day long. I still have IE on as well as Firefox. I could not spin the wheel today because it said I did not have Adobe Flash player but it did not download so it gave me twenty points instead but my food and my BS kept getting lost. I do not want to call the young man on the weekend I will give him a call on Monday. In the meantime I will spin on IE tomorrow.
Take care sleep well ((((HUGS))))) LINDA, Pat in Maine

    I am still messing with this Firefox it is much better than the IE i have no ads hanging about the screen or popping in and out.
I just do not find the zoom in and out for the screen i only find full page.
The last two times I lost a blog I clicked undo and it came right back for me. I lost then entire blog last night and then discovered It had posted already without any spell-check. I went to my Spark page and I saw it had 3 points so i went back and edited it. However Now I know the original stays there while do the editing. When i posted it there were already comments on the page. I was surprised that happens. I live and learn LINDA. You have a weekend off again. Hope your Daughter is doing fine.Take care ((((HUGS))))

    Don't let life get you down. Remember your frustrations shared bring a smile to my face.

You are to upbeat of a personality to let it get you down. It may not seem so but I see the positive bubbling to the top wanting to take the lead in your life.

day started with dog poop !

Thursday, March 15, 2012

I do not even have a dog anymore! I stepped out of my car in front of the neighbor's yard where my mailbox is now located:Poop all over my shoe, but I do not realize it, so get my mail(it is 4:30 a.m..and very dark out) close the door, buckle up, set mail on seat, put car in gear, shuffle on down the road,,sniffing... mhhpphh????
Holy gag reflex! I am at this point driving down our street in the dark, smelling my underarms, gagging...
I know I smell better than that!!
I then realize that wonderful distinct odor,, but have to keep on driving, but my FOOT IS SLIPPING OFF THE GAS PEDAL!!!!!!!!!! emoticon

I have no choice but to drive, but then I realize I have to touch my brake pedal at some point, no matter where I drive!! Picture me driving down the highway at 40 mph, all the windows opened, my hair blowing all over, me gagging with my head hanging out, ironically, like a dog when their owner opens their window...grrrr..

I finally get to work, but jump out of the car, wiping my shoes all over the grassy lawn,, got it all off? Hmm, not sure, will find out when I get the sniff reaction at work..

one person sniffs, asks if anybody smells something like doggie poop,, ,, I walk away,,

fast forward, I get out of work walk out to my car, it is almost 70 degrees outside,, the car windows have been up for 6 hours,, oh boy...

I cannot describe that nauseated feeling when my stomach turned as I got in the car.. of course I do not want anybody there to see me checking out my shoe or the floor mats or pedals because they will realize it WAS me all day..

Turns out there was only a teensy spot left on the bottom of my shoe, BUT I swear on my dad's ashes, a whole pile of it on my car mat under the pedals, on the pedals,,

I have to drive home slipping and sliding away getting even more poop on my shoes again, then I race into my driveway, the door flies open and I kick my shoes off, pull the car mat out on the driveway, go in house, get doggie stain remover, paper towels,and go back outside to PICK IT UP WITH MY HANDS and shake everything out, spray the pedals to soak them,, guess what dried on the pedals? Got to go back out there and clean those pedals again now before DD and I go to her doc appointment,, she is in pain, so I will do a solo on this cleaning job.

SO, unless your days started in s---, literally, do not complain to me!!!!!!!!!!!

    How disgusting for you. I am so sorry about this and whoever left the mess in the first place. You handled it much better than I would have. But even though it was disgusting and you still had it to clean up, you really had me laughing with your telling of the story. (Sorry)

    LINDA, I sso understand. I have the most sensitive nose and gag reflex. I remeber streeys in England where you had to always look where you were going. We have a leash law here and our city has a "pick it up "law too but too many people are not respectful of others.
One neighbor actually has signs all around his property NO DOGS.

A previous next door neighbour watched as another neighbours dog dropped in his yard. Our neighbour went out and scooped and put it on paper, wrapped it like a package and took it to the other house. He knocked on the door and told the man he had left something in the yard he needed to return and then he left. The man had a new dog walking route but our neighbour had less mess in his yard. I doubt I could ever do that but I thought it was brilliant.
I hope you have the mess cleaned and more importantly.!
I hope your Daughter is well. Pat in Maine emoticon emoticon emoticon

    emoticon I am sorry but this did make me laugh.It does make it worse when you don't even have a dog. Hubby always carries a poop bag if he takes our dog for walk but so many people don't.

hairs cut day

Wednesday, March 14, 2012

Today was the day to get my hairs cut. I also got some coloring applied. IF my hair did not look like dirty salt and pepper, I would let it go natural, but even for me, I cannot abide that dirty grey look. On anybody. WHen mine turns snow white like all the chickies in my family, I will be thrilled to let it grow out.. Luckily for me, the local Beauty Academy is extremely inexpensive .

I got a cut, color, highlights(15 foils!), style,, for $40!!! This kind of beauty doesn't just "happen"!! emoticon
I had lots of fun with my friends there too... it is 71 degrees outdoors and I hope the snow stays away for at least a week!
