My housework workout

Friday, December 19, 2014

I am suffering greatly from Shingles nerve damage but It wont get me down. I have too many things to do!!I baked so many goodies for friends and family, raked leaves, did laundry, mopped floors, Christmas shopped, Danced to a workout video(slow-motion)decked the halls and made dinner. Visited an ailing elderly neighbor lady sat down to read her mail came home drank a cup of chai tea and listened to some relaxing music before I take Aaliyah to see Santa Claus!!No I have not caught my tail yet emoticon I will most likely fall out in my Lazy Boy before I make it to bed. emoticon emoticon SUSAN

I can remember how much my mother suffered with shingles. That us why I chose to get the singles vaccine last year.

a wonderful thing called a smile

Wednesday, December 17, 2014

I have been smiling since I was a baby no matter the circumstances. When I'm having a bad day I still smile. I was at a checkout asking about some shoes when I looked up to a frowning cashier(Ralph). I told him to put a smile on his face and fake it and eventually he will feel it. He Said I doubt it but it's worth a try!!A few minutes later I felt a tap on my shoulder and the cashier was telling me he was getting raves about his smile making people's emoticon day a lot better!!By the way SMILING always leads me to feeling like a million!! emoticon emoticon SUSAN

    Very nice blog as usual Sue. Some days when I'm feeling a little blue (due to personal life issues and LACK OF SUNSHINE), a stranger at a store will smile at me and it "cheers me up a bit". I remember their smile throughout the day and I feel a little better.

    What's that saying about smiles? "A smile is something you can't give away; it always comes back to you." I love that!

3 Happy Pit Bulls!

Sunday, December 07, 2014

So we're out there taking a long walk feeling really good, Out of nowhere comes not one but 3 friendly pit bulls ready for some loving, we racked up a few hundred kisses in about 5 minutes.2 were blues and one was black. My Husband had them under control in minutes safely locked in our backyard. Our neighbor was screaming like they had attacked her and were in the process of eating her! LOL we took a picture of their smiling faces and went door to door but no Luck. We returned home called the local police and he said just turn them loose!!!????DH said if we do someone will shoot them out of fear! Finally after hours we saw someone driving through the street shining a flashlight. It turned out to be the owners and we breathed a sigh of relief.Talk about RUDE!! I felt like telling them to kiss off... emoticon SUSAN

I think for the most part humans are to blame for the bad rep that pit bulls have or for any breed for that matter,granted, you will sometimes come across a bad apple in the
litter,but mostly dogs start out with a clean slate..

It is good the pups got to go home safe and sound, I.d. makes sense doesn't it?
My girl has a Tattoo, a chip and a tag with her name and phone #, and we have made use of them...
Have a good evening emoticon

    You did a great thing and I'm sure the owner is extremely grateful. We've had our red nose pit bull for about a month. A few days after we got him he got out of our yard and went roughly 2 miles to the park near our house. Luckily, we had put a new tag on him with our contact information the day before. Apparently red nose pit bulls are not common in these parts. A nice gentleman saw him walking around confused and clapped his hands loudly. Our dog ran right to him. He took him home, called my husband to let him know he had found him. He told my husband "I know he wasn't a stray for the fact that he had a collar with tags and you can tell he's well taken care of." My husband went to pick our dog up and gave the guy 20 bucks for his time and thanked him perfusely. I'll admit I was scared of pit bulls for years. "Red" is the most laid back, lovable (lots of kisses), and protective dog I've had in 30 years.

My soda wagon

Saturday, December 06, 2014

After 35 years of being a diehard diet soda drinker,I have undertaken the journey to quit soda completely! I am a total addict and I admit it. There is no in between or cutting back I went cold turkey 60 days ago today.I don't even think about it anymore! Yes I'm on the wagon and will most likely stay on it. I was telling a friend I was out of soda and that I was not buying anymore. After she got through laughing and wiping tears from her face she bet me a new outfit I couldn't go 30 days. We have to wait a few weeks to buy my outfit because I have SHINGLES!!I am only 54 but YES I have them for sure. The pain is undescribably awful. We decorated for Christmas today and I took like 6 breaks.My 4 week old Grandson is growing like a weed and so so cute..I forgot to mention I have a bad cold and an ingrown toenail that has to be removed Monday emoticon Everybody stay sweet and remember to text or talk after you stop your car!! emoticon SUSAN

So sorry about the shingles. I've heard how painful they can be. Hope it heals soon for you. emoticon

    That is a great thing! Congratulations on your soda success.
You must have saved quite a bit of money after sixty days?
Buy yourself a non soda treat.
