DH and I just previewed this DVD that I got Wednesday from Circuit City.  It is really a cute movie.  I am sure the DGC(dear grand children) will enjoy it.  We did.

I always like to watch a movie if it is rated PG before I let them watch it.  There were a couple of comments calling one a fool and then stupid and one of the songs was suggestive.  Unless they walk around with cotton in their ears, I am sure they have heard worse.

I have an appointment Monday for more blood work concerning my thyroid levels.  Also, I have one with a surgeon for consultation on the partial blockage (50%) of my left carotid artery and some thyroid tissue that was either left or has regrown.  Before I go to the doctors, I will go see Mother. What a way to begin my 4 days vacation.

I wish I could just go away and enjoy time, with no dead lines to be met, with someone else doing the cooking and making of the bed, you know a real vacation.

Oh well, such is life and I am so blessed that I really should have no negative thoughts.

I am uncomfortable because I am too big. How can I lose the excess 30 to 35 pounds that I carry around everyday? Extra cargo may be contributing to my tiredness. The best way I know is to quit and push. What?? Yes, when I think I have had enough to eat, quit bending my elbow bringing food to my mouth and push my self away from the table. If this fails, I could always try tenuate.

Remember when we were in school and had to write our term papers. We would spread our open books around us with our little note cards, making notes and not forgetting the footnotes. After we had all of our note cards made then we would make an outline of our subject so that our paper would have some degree of order.  As we did each step in the process of our final paper our teacher would grade us.  I did my term paper on tuberculosis, one of the nerds did his paper on market research, or maybe I was the nerd.

Not ruff ruff like the dog but rough as in hard and tiring work. Monday when I left work my relief was working on a lay-a-way for a lady who had waited about 30 minutes while the store manager scoured around in  one of the stock areas to make sure the merchandise was available.   She wanted a group of 4 chairs and a table (chairs together in one box and table in another box).  The one she had seen was a floor model and we do not sell floor models for various reasons.   Anyway, when I arrived for work one of her labels was on the counter, which meant that one of her  boxes had not been labeled.Folks, this was 2 days ago.  Slack! Slack!  I go to the stock area and squeeze thru small spaces and such trying to find the item,  I do locate the chairs, labeled, but not the table.  I ask the store manager about it and  he tells me almost exactly where to find the table.  After squeezing thru another small space and climbing on and over other items, I find and label her table.

I did not go see my mom yesterday so that meant I really needed to go today and that I did.  I had company on the ride, 2 of my DGDs went with me.  I am glad they did because the chatter kept me awake.

I shampooed my hair and much to my surprise it styled quite easily. I have had my hair much, much shorter since the picture was made. Having my hair do right started my day off good.

Saw DD2 at the ‘looking better’ place, she said she was there for a massage. She was in a car wreck a few years back and messed her shoulder up pretty bad and she is a hairdresser so that means lots of shoulder use. Only said “hello” and “bye”, that is all the time we had.

I was not wrong, the magnetic force pulled me right to the computers at Circuit City, but their choices were very limited. But I did get “Happy Feet”.  As I was going by Sam’s, my car turned in and parked, so that meant that I had to go in and see what they had. Not much in the way of desktop computers, I still spent about $50.
Stopped by the Hallmark store and picked up Cherished Teddies that I had ordered for DGD#3  months ago. They were the membership pieces for 2006.

Then stopped by K-Mart to get DH meds and to check my schedule. I asked for a few days vacation to get a little rest and try to get myself in functioning order. Tell me if this makes sense: I will have Saturday thru Thursday off and on Friday and Saturday I am scheduled 10-7. Rarely am I ever scheduled more than 4 hours per day.

Came home spent about 45 minutes on the phone trying to determine how much pension I would get if I retired and I still don’t know. Took out the trash from the freezer room and that is about all I did in there. Prepared supper and had it ready about 6, it is now 7:35 and DH still is not home. He had to work over last night and I know he is going to tell me that he told me he would work over tonight but he didn’t.

I am a fanatic when it comes to keeping records on how much I owe and to whom and how much I have paid, so I worked on that a little.

Not a lot of relaxing and enjoyment, but a few things accomplished.

Almost forgot, saw one of my ‘adopted sisters’ and she showed me the diamond that she got Thursday night. Her husband of over 40 years died suddenly about 7 years ago. I am glad that she has found someone

I am off work today and I have claimed it as my day. I do have to do a few necessary things such as pay the household bills and prepare supper.

I have an appointment to have laser on my face to remove excess hair. I guess extra hair on some folks is a part of getting in the silver and above years.

I am trying to organize the freezer room, so I will probably do a little on that. I can’t believe that I woke at 7am and could not go back to sleep. My mind started rambling like it does sometimes at night.  So I get up do a paid post and just surf around for a bit.

I do plan to go by Circuit City and pick up the DVD “Happy Feet”. It was released yesterday and they have it $6. cheaper than we do.  I am off to bathe and enjoy my day.  While there I am sure that some magnetic force will draw me over to look at computers. (lol)

I no longer need to see a dentist on a regular basis, much to my sorrow. If I had taken better care of my teeth when I was younger and had seen a dentist for regular check-ups, I probably would not be wearing dentures now.

I have 3 grandchildren that really need to see a dentist and will likely be referred to an orthodontist for a consultation. If we lived close to Alexandria, Virgina, I would take them to the office of the Haywood Dental Care. I would not have to take them to another office because here they provide family, cosmetic, and general dentistry. All of the dentist in this office have had advanced or specialty training and they even have orthodontists (free consultation) on staff. Also to their credit their dentists have perfect records with the Board of Dentistry and have had no complaints about their services.

If you are in the area and have a dental need contact them at 703-971-2220. Yes,they do accept new patients without referral and also emergencies.

I am sure all have heard of Tornado Alley. I live in the Hurricane Zone, we have had a few tornadoes close by, but our main threat is the hurricane. It is now the last of March and before I know it June will be here and the hurricane season. I need not wait until the last minute to get our survival kits together. I can pack blankets, canned food, flashlights with extra batteries and make a list of the meds that we have to have and if need be add them to our kits. Should an evacuation be ordered we are only a block from the shelter, for that I am very glad.
