I had to work until 2 this afternoon an then went to the Market to join Hubby and Coco. They had been really busy today. I could not believe how well they had done. There were a number of people there that sell knock off merchandise and the Custom Agents raided them today. They confinscated merchandise and took several of the people to jail. I have purchased some of the better stuff for myself. This merchandise comes in 3 to 4 grades and you have to really check it out. The top grades are really hard to tell from the real thing.
Hubby always fusses me for buying this, but I took him to a store that sold the real stuff and picked out the bag that I wanted. I thought we would hve to pick him up off the floor when he saw the price. He was planning on purchasing me a real deal until the sticker price hit him. Back in the car he commented that the one I have looked so much like the real he understands why I was so excited when I got it. I know not everyone feels this is a good practice, buy I enjoy wearing and carrying the fakeouts. I have read in several of the women's magazines that you should not put your money in the real thing, but get the fakeouts.

I am also a big jewelry person and Hubby noticed I was wearing a new ring. He would not ask me about it but I could tell he had noticed it. Do not get me wrong, I love the real stones set in precious metals.....but.......A customer came in and commented on my ring. After she left, he finally asked me about it. I told him it was a fakeout. Good quality fake stones set in sterling instead of white gold or platinum. He knows that over the years, I have collected great jewelry, bought and sold many items. He has learned to recognize a lot of things when we are out shopping. At least he knows I would not have walked into a retail jewelry store and purchase a ring like this. He finally started laughing and told me that he knew if it was real it had to be a deal for me to buy.

It's great to have a person in your life that understands you and does not complain when you spend a little money. ONe day a lady commented on my purse and he remarked you want to buy it, everything is for sale. He has seen me take jewelry off my hand, wrist or neck and sell to people.

Well, my schedule has changed for the fourth time for next week. I guess I am just going to go with the flow. I am being switched from different offices that they know are going to be busier than the one I am in at this time. I have worked in four offices this week and was called this afternoon to pick up the slack in one of the stores until closing time. I was clocking out from my store and they called and asked me to come to another one and work until closing.

Well, when I got home, little Miss Coco was at the door with her legs crossed. She rushed past me and out the door. Hubby had a double today so he left at 6:00am and I left at 8:30 as I need to go by the store for lunch items and the post office to get some mail out before opening at 10:00. I did not get home until 8:30 pm. She rushed into the yard before I could check things out. Some people have moved in next door to us and have a large male pit. He has jumped the fence into my yard already 3 times that I know of. The lady was taking him into the house when she came out. I am concerned that he is jumpting the fence. I did tell her that I am not happy about this situation and she is going to have to keep him in her yard. He was chasing my cats the first time he jumped the fence. The gentlemen that lives behind her informed her that if he came back over into his yard, he was fair game. We have not had any problems with dogs for a long time in our neighborhood and I hate to see this situation developing. Well, he people next door are renting and I have been friends with the owner for 30 years. She called me and told me who was moving in, but I do not think she knows about the dog. She lived there for the first 15 years we were in our house so I know she will look out for us that live here in the neighborhood.

    The dog situation could become horrendous. Keep a close eye on it and your little girl - sounds like you and your DH both manage to keep a little busy...................

  It sounds like you have a busy time at work for sure! I suppose that is good in this economy. I hope you have time to plan and take care of yourself too.

Well, today is my day off. Hubby and I took Coco for her bath as she has some fleas. I am putting her on Advantage, which I hoped I woul d not have to do, but she is so allergic to them that we have to do someting. Hubby stopped and got the Ortho for the yard in the red bag that kills the fleas for up to three months. This worked really well for us last year. We are keeping a close eye on her putting this on her. She was not having a reaction to that when we used it before, but after all ther reactions to the others things the vet put her on, I am concerned.

We went to Whole Foods and had lunch there. We enjoyed it. Hubby got his Acai Juice and he got a sallin soulution for his allergies. We also picked up some wonderful looking olives off the olive bar, some cheese that we do not find elsewhere and we were looking at the fresh fish. We did not get any today as we would not be able to cook it until Saturday evening and I do not want to keep it that long. I will stop by the fish market in our area and pick up whatever is fresh Saturday. We have discussed that we need more fish in our diet and we need to really pay attention to this. We have been cutting down on the red meat and pork and I am not really a big chicken eater so we need another way to go.

I saw some fresh salmon burgers and crab cakes while we were there today. I told him that we could do some salmon burgers on the grill every couple of weeks now that the weather is more to cooking out. We also bought fresh star fruit and avocadoes while there.

Well, Hubby was feeling better so he returned to work today. He is talking about volunteering for a double on Friday. I told him, maybe he should not do that as he has been feeling bad and he did not need to push himself until he is completely over this. Well, we will see.....Hopefully he will be reasonable and not push himself yet. He needs to get over this so that we can really enjoy ourselves again. On top of not feeling good, he is a complete baby when he is not feeling good. I was ready to go to work everyday as he would just sit around and moun....if I asked him was was the matter, oh, it nothing.....then more mouning. I made sure he had Gatoraid, orange juice, plenty of water a the doctor told him to use lots of fluids. He is wearing his mask at work so he is not breathing in the pollen and dust around his plant.

He has called me four times today since he got to work. He keeps telling me he is feeling okay. I hope so.

    Hope he didnt push it too much too soon. I have a friend just geting over swine flu. Even though she is feeling better she needs the recoup time or (and this I didn't know about it) it'll come back stronger than ever! Take care of yourselves

Hubby still cannot talk in a normal voice. He squeaks, but he is feeling better. He kept going outside today. It is beautiful out there, but he pollen in our area is really bad. I had him look straight up at the oak trees and they are yellow. He was not going to cook our steaks on the grill because of the pollen, but everytime I turned around he was out there. I told him to just forget it and cook the steaks on the grill and then he remembered why he was not going to sit out there with them. Dua....do certain things register with men. He is having major problems with the pollen, but he was not going to cook out so he would not expose himself to the elements. Then he told me he was going out and wash off his truck and my car so there would not be so much on them....dah..dah....next week it will be better so why not wait and do it then....There is no control of the trees around our house He knows he should not be out there, but he wants to do all these thing, but cook the steaks out....why bother if you are going out for every other reason in the world. I finally told him I wanted him to cook the steaks on the girll and he said no, he did not need to be outside....dah....Finally he came in and did not wash the vehicles and sat down where he was not breathing th pollen. Men are from Mars. I am sure. They definitely do not compute at times.

Miss Coco was at the door every time he walked out. she was on his heels. I wiped her off with a damp papertowel. as she will be laying right next to hubby in bed and she will be covered with the same pollen

    Not sure about "flying allergens" like pollen but would a dust mask have worked? At very least it wouldve impeded the progress of the pollen a bit! Laurie
