shes like the wind

Thursday, October 24, 2013

I am a busy person.I love to do for others.My favorite times are when I'm at the retirement home and the animal shelter helping out.I realized today its been 3 weeks since I took any ME time!I woke,took a shower,put on some exercise clothes,took my treadmill for a spin and sacked out on my backyard chaise with a book and some green iced tea.My dog curled up next to me and WOW I relaxed all morning!I have since did nothing but relax and talk on the phone.I see some dirt on the floor and some dirty dishes in the sink,a few cobwebs and some laundry needing done.But I doubt it will go anywhere!!A good lunch and a nap are waiting for me.Have a WONDERFUL day YA'LL emoticon SUSAN

    It is a necessity to make a little "me" time in one's schedule!

Do you ever feel like you are being followed?

Friday, October 18, 2013

My daughter and I went into Dillard's and though they are really helpful and nice,we kept looking up to see a store clerk following us around.At first we thought it to be a coincidence then we moved to the shoes and VOILA!There she was again!We moved on to the lingere and there she is pretending to dust,watching us.We laugh a lot and find a lot of funny things in life but after returning from the restroom we found her slinking around behind the purses.She followed us to the bedding then to jewelry.By that time it wasn't funny anymore.Feeling way uncomfortable we left to eat lunch.We cut back through to our car on the way out of the mall and she followed us all the way to the door.I turned finally and asked her what seemed to be bothering her that,she felt we were untrustworthy.She admitted a lot of shoplifting was happening and we were not the only ones being watched!!WOW!!!I was so upset that I sent an email to Dillard's HQ.We got an apology but it didn't much help.An insult is always hurtful and I'm ready to drop Dillard's off my shopping list right now.I always shop their clearance area but will rethink it from now on!We had been to the gym and were wearing jog suits.We looked nice and were clean from our after gym showers so who knows why we were singled out??? emoticon SUSAN

    I would drop them from my shopping list. There are plenty of other places to go that don't treat their customers like that.

    Sorry to hear that happened to you. I get that too when I go to Dillards, either they are watching us or are unwilling to help us. Guess if we fit certain criteria then we are watched & if we don't meet expectations then they figure that we are "just looking" and really don't need any help.

Ugh!!! It's so frustrating!! Keep your chin up, don't let one person ruin your day, she so isn't worth it.

    How crazy, they need to install more security cameras not turn salespeople into stalkers. I worked at Old Navy and was trained to look for women with big purses or diaper bags and to just keep an eye on them and if I had a reason to suspect the shoplifter just let my supervisor know. People use their kids to steal too, it's sad. I worked in a seedy part of town though too.

Little bird flew back to the nest!

Wednesday, October 16, 2013

We woke up to a very cool morning.The lower 50's and rain.I threw on my sweatpants a parka and proceeded to take a walk.The sweet fresh air was making my eyes tear up and seeing all the leaves falling made me feel good.We still have a lot of green grass and leaves but its starting to transform into Fall.Our daughter has had to move back home.We were hoping she would go to school.But she decided to do her own thing and a year later is regretting it.She moved out to live with her sister and they fought a lot.She was being done wrong and getting some of life's experiences along the way.She has grown up a lot.She still has a long road of growing up to do.We have spent the last 2 weeks going for interviews for a job.She has landed one so far and has an interview today for another one.That's right she'll be working two jobs!!She is saving to get her own place.It's funny how the very people you want to escape from is the people that end up helping you the most!!!LOL emoticon I've been sick a few days with a cold emoticon but working out and my pants are falling down emoticon YeeHaw!!I'm making a basket of too big clothing to sell at our yard sale. emoticon SUSAN

Some people hate to see others succeed

Monday, September 30, 2013

Mom always told me to get rid of the people that are negative.They always seem to drag a person down!They cant stand to see others accomplish goals that they wont even try to reach for.I'm going to talk about my ex-friend Rachael.I said I would never speak about her but I am going to now.She was the one negative in my life I kept around until recently.The day started beautiful enough until I met this bitter,angry,overweight,negative human in the park to walk and have lunch afterward.I am a positive sunny person.I love people.I volunteer with senior citizens,animal shelters,food drives,cancer walks,coat and blanket collections,you name it I'm doing it!So I invited her to help us with coats for kids.Alot of kids go without warm coats.She snarled at me and rolled her eyes.I tried ignoring her rudeness and went to order my Subway sandwich.It just so happened to be an oven roasted chicken breast(6inch)She said it wasn't enough and slopped Chinese food buffet on top of my food!!!I was mad but held it in.I removed the top of my sandwich bread and started eating it.Are you for real?she shouted.Yes I laugh I am!Well before she finished with her rant and told me about myself I knew I couldn't have her around anymore.I've known her for 19+years and had just saw her worst behavior.I said I would never give up on her and tried to talk rationally to her.It wasn't happening!You're selfish and are not all that she yelled.I told her to have a nice life and moved to another table.My daughter works in the mall and drove me home after work.Mom she said,you can't keep being friends with Rachael she advised.She always upsets you!It was then that I knew that my so called friend was history.I feel a little sad but It also feels like a huge weight was lifted off my chest!I am all that in my book.Im a very loving and kind human being and I don't care who knows it.I am who I am and wont change my sunny attitude for anyone!!! emoticon emoticon SUSAN

  Susan--- Your daughter's advice is the right advice. When you have known someone so long, it is "sad" (as you say) to see this "association" end --because you know that it cannot become a happy friendship...ever. Never change your sunny attitude, Susan!
Hugs!

I believe in miracles

Thursday, September 26, 2013

Waiting for the phone to ring was agony.Everytime I picked it up and looked at the caller ID My heart fell.I was waiting for word about a lump I had in my neck after it was biopsied.Finally the call came and with a dry mouth and racing heart I answered.Susan?Yes I answered it's okay just tell me quickly.It's benign she yelled with as much relief as I felt.I couldn't speak because I had tears pouring down my face.I cried,I laughed,I danced!!Praise the Lord is all I can say!!I have to go next Friday and get it surgically removed but THAT I can handle!! emoticon SUSAN
