Happy Wednesday .. Lunch with a friend today .. and looking forward to it .. :) Have a good one!

Wednesday, June 20, 2018

Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!! You know the drill .. I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)

We also have iced for a selection of fresh iced drinks ...

Yesterday was a good day, even though my plans were changed a bit ... :) when hubby called and he was trying to fix something for me, and they told him "I" had to be there as well .. I was denied for a small credit card, and the only reason they are telling me is "looks like fraud" . I can't find out any reason why .. I have identified everything that they have asked me without hesitation ... I understand their side of it, but if I can identify that I'm me .. tell me WHY it was declined .. Hubby is trying to get me some small credit cards, that I can use; to build up my credit history in case, God forbid, something ever happened to him .. I have a couple of small ones ... and we have combined history, but he wants me to have something in my name alone .. Just the idea that they won't tell us anything is frustrating .. I don't care why it was denied; we have excellent credit rating .. I just want to know why .. but nobody will tell us .. even the banker couldn't get any more information than I have .. This world has become so high security you can't find any information about yourself .. ??? UNbelievable ..

*stepping off of my soapbox* ..

So -- he was trying to find out information ... and he couldn't so he called me .. and asked if he could come and pick me up and take me to lunch, stopping at the bank enroute .. I had my salad that I had picked up on the way, and I had my computer with me, I was going to work on my Spark stuff .. and my plans were made .. BUT ... he was being nice and trying to help with my frustration . no .. help SOLVE my frustration lol .. and offered lunch as well .. So I agreed .. :) My salad is one of those chopped salads in a bag, and would hold until Thursday ..

We went and well -- didn't get anywhere, but he took me to Roberts for lunch .. (that's expensive stuff for him) .. and we each got a burger and split an order of fries, and each a soda .. I was so hungry for one of their burgers .. One of their burgers are sooo big around, that I cut it in 4; and pretty much get 4 McD's burgers (size) in one burger .. I enjoyed every single bite .. :)

Even though .. the afternoon was hard keeping my eyeballs open .. When I got back, it was cool out, and they had turned off the AC. That's fine, but it was soooo damp I couldn't breathe. so I asked Jimmy if I could turn the AC back on, just to get the mugginess out of the office .. (JT was happy that I took the initiative as well) .. JL just did it without asking around .. and he was on my poo list yesterday anyway .. he was having one of his intense day's .. and I was on the point of his Intense a couple of times, and wasn't having it .. :) I smiled, and gritted my teeth ..

I did get my worksheets ready for upload .. so I'll transfer that today so I can log in from home and just shoot it into the system .. I'll shoot it into the sandbox today to make sure, because I just copied the real company yesterday .. and make sure it goes in right ..

I worked with Ben yesterday on the start of uploading the price changes ..I thought I would do this in sections .. yesterday I showed him the "comparison" .. when I show these people things .. I am constantly saying "understand??" .. because they are following my example; and typing what I'm telling them .. I think I'll set up a simple dummy sheet to just let Ben enter the formulas needed ... These people just don't have the curiosity I have .. I don't understand it .. I worked hard at trying to make formula's that pretty much made and served coffee .. they don't seem to want to take the time to learn this stuff .. I don't get it .. ??? (daddy in me ... lol)

I talked with Kim yesterday .. and I told her .. there's alot of stuff that I know for around work, that there would never be time to try and teach ..The hardest thing that I had to do was try and figure out what were the most important things to teach .. the others just made my job easier .. There are things that they will never know .. and I'm not going to have time to teach .. I've explained over and over .. go over to the sandbox (dummy company) and "see what this does or see what that does" .. but everyone is "too busy" .. so .. it is what it is .. I can only preach so much ..

But .. Kim was actually very on the ball yesterday . .. and we laughed because we had to pick on her .. I was sitting at JL's desk; (just inside the counter door), and I heard Kim come in .. I was talking with Leonard and JT .. and I put my finger to my mouth .. "sssshhhhh" ... and they did .. Kim is so much on a mission that she's got blinders on .. she belined right back to my desk, while JT and Leonard were laughing .. and JT said something that made her turn around .. He said she's the same way around the house .. lol ..

At 5:00 I was out the door... I got a good chunk of stepping in and at least covered my low goal yesterday (okay -- better than the past few days) ..

I got home, and went right downstairs (it was yucky, misty, cold, and rainy yesterday) .. and checked out my gazelle .. Yup -- it was still down there . lol lol .. however, last I had seen it, it was under an avalanche of boxes .. but hubby had cleaned that up evidentally .. I stepped on it, and worked it slowly until breathing was a difficulty .. about 5 minutes .. I got off and checked out if maybe I could reduce the resistance a bit, until I worked up to the resistance .. well -- I figured out how to remove the resistance. I got on and it was like cross country skiing .. so I did 10 minutes of that .. I got 15 minutes of additional exercise in before coming upstairs .. I was proud of myself .. the last couple days I've been a slug again, and with the rain, I'm like a fish out of water, I can't walk outside .. and I don't like to go to the gym at the end of the day; because it's crowded .. (mid day gym person) .. soooo I came up with excuses ... and they were coming too easily .. and worrying me I had to squelch that problem FAST !!!! I did .. and at least got 15 minutes of walking/skiing under my belt .. and ended up with just under 6000 steps for the day .. I was proud of myself ..

Did you know that once excuses start .. they are soo easy to continue .. why is that .. how come initiative isn't as easy .. I guess this blog is "questioning initiative" .. Excuses and lazy come way too easy ..

I had a horrible nightmare last night .. I don't remember the specifics and don't want to remember the specifics, but it was bad enough that it woke me up with a horrible start, and I was literally afraid of falling back asleep .. Don't know where that came from ??

Once I did fall back asleep I don't remember anything until my alarm woke me up this morning ..

I have lunch with Gary today .. and I'm looking forward to it .. so it will be a lazier day today .. I'm leaving a note for hubby reminding him of a small dinner tonight ..

I signed up for another page on Spark yesterday ..called Shutterbugs .. just fun and y'all know I don't like taking pictures lol .. It looks like a fun page .. and it's true .. their logic is while you are out and about; you're not in the kitchen looking for food ..

I need to check and see if they have a craft page as well .. same logic .. In my case, I have my fingers so full of glue, paint and sticky; I can't eat .. lol lol...

Spark to the RESCUE !!! lol lol ..

Have a great day .. and remember -- find something to laugh about !!!! :) it really helps the day !!!!

    Wow! So sorry to hear about the difficulties getting a credit card! kYes, the world has totally changed from what it was.

    Uh oh. That’s not good that Leonard was on your poo list!

    Glad you got your low walking goal covered yesterday. It’ll improve.

    Yes, it was a yucky, rainy, misty, dampy, cool day. Ok, that about covers it. BUT in Mother Nature’s defense, at least it wasn’t snow!

    You are so right about excuse. One begets another, which begets another, and so on.
