This is for all the fat people.

Monday, October 22, 2012

I am so sick of the rude,ugly,non thinking adults out there!!!Fat people have ears and can hear to spite what some people think.I'm standing in a line behind a morbidly obese young woman in a motorized shopping cart.She had limited arm reach and was asking for help and not one other person stepped forward.I dont know about anyone else but,I was raised with respect,love and kindness for my fellow man/woman.Two 20ish women stood in line laughing histerically and talking about the food she filled her cart with was for one meal!!The lady(Cynthia) had large tears rolling down her cheeks from embarrassment and I stopped in my tracks,scooped up her groceries laid them on the conveyer and called for the manager.Two came quickly,I reminded them of compassion and that a fat person isnt always choosing to be fat and if they are what the heck?Does that give anyone the right to humiliate another human being?The checker should have called a manager but,its not her fault.Cynthia is 24 years old,with no family and a beautiful soul.My oldest dd has offered to get her involved with a support group and call her when she needs a shopping escort.I am so proud of her!It feels so good to help somebody out.I am not one to stand for rudeness to another and have had my share of dirty names.But im still standing! emoticon SUSAN

I'm glad you stepped up and did the right thing. Goodness, didn't their parents teach them manners or compassion ? Whenever I see a person in need at the grocery store or where ever, I try to lend a hand. That just the decent thing to do.

It's scary, but few people seem to want to do the decent thing anymore.

You're a decent soul !

    More people like you and your DD are what we need in this country, thank goodness you were there to help hthe young lady. I just don't know how people are being raised these days; seems like a lot less respect for other people and their feelings.

    People are rude because our society enables it to much. if those young people were mistreated in a similar manner maybe they would learn to stop doing it instead of contuing the problem

Something funny

Tuesday, October 09, 2012

I volunteer at a nursing home and one of my charges is Marcus.He has alzheimers.He comes from a family of SNOBS that look down their noses at everyone.It's hard for them to show Marcus any attention.Marcus obviously has changed a great deal and they are perplexed as to what to do.When he is agitated he says"sumbitch" over and over.
So,one day my grandson Gilbert came with me because his mom had an appointment.He is 11 but a childlike 11.He brought coloring books,markers,stamps,crayons,glue and a Groucho Marx type plastic mustache,glasses combo.I was sitting in the conference room where I could see him talking to Marcus' family.They were talking to me like I had personally handed out Alzheimers to Marcus!Of course Marcus began his chant of "sumbitch"which told me he was getting upset.My sweet boy walked in the room,took Marcus by the hand and lead him to the table.Handed Marcus crayons,a book and the plastic glasses were gently placed on Marcus face.I had never before seen him that much at ease.He smiled and laughed the whole time!!Later as we were cleaning up Gilbert asked me what Marcus was trying to say but never finished.You know Grammy?the "sumbitch"Laughing loudly I explained and he laughed too.See,Gilbert thought Marcus was saying "some bitch------and never finished his sentence.... emoticon emoticon SUSAN

    Thats cute, and what a wonderful thing your grandson did spending some time coloring with a older person; just doing what young kids enjoy doing--it showed tat such a simple thing calmed Marcus down. Hopefully, his family took notice, but then it propabely is beneath them to spend that type of time with Marcus.

Giving new life to an old item

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

I am big on teaching my family how to breathe life into an old table,a shelf a rug a blanket,etc.Goodwill and Salvation Army sell all kinds of household items.A couch can be covered,a table refinished or painted,a rug cleaned,a lamp re-wired.My family used to laugh and make fun of my skills but not anymore.We found my daughter a dining table that costed $5 at a yard sale.After sanding and a coat of polyeurathane it looks awesome!Her friends can't believe it wasn't new.We found her daughter about $300 worth of school clothes for $25.Zumba,pilates,yoga dvd's for $1 and shoes barely worn for $3.If you are the type that can live with used items,take my advice and save alot of money!!My neighbor threw out a perfectly great dresser,we dragged it home,painted it and Abra Cadabra!!she is so proud that she did it herself also.What old item have you turned around? emoticon SUSAN

    I love doing stuff like this. I like to pick up a cheap sweatshirt to wear before a race, then discard it right before I start running. Some races even have special bins to pick up the donated items.

    I love garage sales and flea markets. With 10 kids I have had a lot of experience with them. My eldest daughter and I had kids in preschool together. While the kids were in preschool we would go to the flea market on Thursday mornings. We bought lots of our kids Christmas gifts there. Real bargains that just needed a little TLC! I think my favorite bargain was a coral formal that was stained all down the front. It had a ruffle down the front also so I bought it and thought I would move the ruffle to cover the stain emoticon . First I tried to remove the stain--tested the method on the hem. I treated the stain and washed the dress and shortened it to fit my daughter and it was perfect for her Junior Prom. Oh, it cost 25 cents!

    All the clothes I get some goodwill. Plus, I found a stability ball for $3! All my coffee mugs are seconds and I found a great pair of winter boots recently (LL Bean) for $7. Didn't even look used! Large jewlery box for my granddaughter. She looooves it!

The Floor...dum da dum dum!

Monday, September 24, 2012

As i've blogged before,We paid for a floor through Home Depot and waited since June 8th to get anything even straw installed!!!So after much whining,complaining,calling and threatening lawsuits we finally have a porcelain floor for the price of vinyl.Now,someone decided we owe an extra $596.78!I took our brand new car in to have the tire changed due to a screw piercing the outer treads.They dont repair this type of damage.So i happily left the car expecting to get it back at 6:00 pm,caught the complimentary shuttle home and of all the cockamamie things to happen...they "misplaced" my car!!!Well after two days they found it and forgot to order the stupid tire!!!Peace ya'll emoticon SUSAN
