GOLFING IN MYRTLE BEACH

Monday, September 27th, 2010

I do not golf, but if I did, I would surely want to play some of the courses in Myrtle Beach.  My husband, in years past, played several of the courses there.  One thing for sure, I would want convenience and am told this can be achieved if I book with http://www.myrtlebeachgolf.net.

Golfing is a great game for exercise if you walk the course.  It also offers time for good fellowship with your friends or even the opportunity to make new friends.  There are so many golf courses in Myrtle Beach that it is known as the golf capital of the world.  Do not be stressed before you play, trying to book your hotel accommodations and tee times, let Myrtle Beach Golf Courses take care of that for you.

If I should ever decide to play this sport, I will not have the hassle of finding tee times with close by accommodations as I have found this site that will do all the work for me and all I will have to do is enjoy my time while in Myrtle Beach.  Myrtle Beach Golf Packages will do the same for you.

RAIN

Monday, September 27th, 2010

It has been a long time since we have had any rain here.  We did not even have rain during ‘dog days’ like we usually do.

It has rained 12 inches in 26 hours and 40 minutes.  That is some rain coming down.  At times there has been no rain and then rain has come in different ranges–sprinkle, drizzle, good rain, down pour and torrents, almost as if sheets of rain.

I hope everyone that has to travel has safe traveling and if you do not have to go out, use your brain and stay in.

SNAIL MAIL

Saturday, September 25th, 2010

Yes, there is still ‘snail mail’.  I usually get something everyday.  Most of the time I bring it in walk by the recycle trash and drop it.

There are lots of curbside mailboxes at apartment complexes.  These types of mailboxes must meet government regulations just as a single curbside mailbox.  If one has a regular single mailbox, it has to be minimum size and so many feet from the road edge and can only be so high.  These rules are to the benefit of the mail deliverer.

I hope that I can always maintain a certain amount of independence and never have to live where curbside mail boxes are provided for those living in assisted living apartments.

I much prefer my ‘side of the road mail box’.  DH did a great job when he purchased this one.  When the door is opened a little yellow flag pops up  thus eliminating trips to the mail box before it has been delivered.

SEWING

Saturday, September 25th, 2010

I can sew, not very well, but I could if I were to start with simple items and learn by doing.   Before I can start with simple items, I need to take my machine to the shop.  The material will not feed and just gets all rumpled and the thread gets in a mess.

I have a sister friend that sews quite well, so she is making valances for me to put in the bedroom.  (I could do this if my machine was working properly)  I brought 2 of them home with me last night and hung them.  Today she came over and we decided they needed to be about 1 1/2 inches shorter, so back to her house they did go.

She will take them up from the bottom, putting more weight on the very bottom of them, making them hang better.

I will be so glad when the bedroom is finished.  I sure wish I could have new carpet installed.  That is so far from reality that it is a nightmare, not a dream.  Maybe, in a couple more weeks, it will be like I want it or as I want it with what I feel like I can afford.

SCHOOL AGAIN

Saturday, September 25th, 2010

The children received their progress reports yesterday and all did well.  If they should have a problem with any of their math homework, they can surely get free math help.

Tutornext.com offers online assistance for grades K-12 and then on into college math.  The first grader came home this week with several word math problems.  I think this is a little early for written problems, this may be why I am not in the educational field.

No matter what you are having difficulty with or what grade you may be, the assignment help and online tutoring services is convenient and affordable and can surely assist you with free homework help.

BUSY DAY

Saturday, September 25th, 2010

WOW!!  I had a fairly busy day.  Worked in the house some after putting the trash and recycle stuff out for pick-up.  Watched as DD tried to fix my computer, my watching did not help at all.

After lunch is when I got busy.  I had an appointment at 2:30 for a hair cut.  Fine, all goes well there.

I am within 2 miles of home and my cell phone rings and it is the doctor’s office asking me if I can come in to the office today.   I turn around and go back to town to their office.  Enough said for now about the call and the office visit.

While in town, my friend calls and asks if I can do such and such.  This is done and finally I am on my way home once again.

I come home, get my checkbook and go to my daughter’s house to use her computer to balance it with what the bank says.  My computer is not secure right now.

After this is done, I then must go to Castle Hayne.  I have checked the mileage but do not remember now how far it is from my house.

I get home about 9:30, hang a new room darkening shade, iron and hang energy saving drapes, iron and hang valances (on the rod that I put up all by myself, another first) that match an old spread now on my bed.

I may be a little tired from all the back and forth and some stress but that is ok because tomorrow is another day.

SHOPPING HELP

Tuesday, September 21st, 2010

Would you like for someone to do the brain work for you when it is time to shop?  That is exactly what ShopWiki does, that is their business, they have approximately 30,000 stores in which you can shop.

If you are in the market for a home theatre, ShopWiki is your one stop shopping.  Best prices and very informational on the product that you may select, including receivers and projectors.

Maybe you have the TV you want but would like to upgrade from your old DVD play to a new Blu-Ray.  It is my guess that within a few years, everyone will have to upgrade as the regular DVD player will no longer be available.

Does not matter if you are looking for a new Plasma television or just a MP3 player, you will find the best deals and savings at ShopWiki because they have more products from more stores.

AGAIN

Tuesday, September 21st, 2010

The company that I work with has changed uniforms or as they call it dress code.  Employees have until November to get the new colored shirt.  For a few years we have been allowed to wear white or red shirts, now they are changing to blue.  Thank goodness they are not changing from the black pants or skirts, however we can no longer wear capris.  Seems they should be more interested in the fit of the pants rather than out ruling the capri length.

I have been with this company almost 13 years and still do not make $10. an hour and this is before taxes.  I know there are people in my store making minimum wage and the shirts if ordered thru personnel are $9. each.

Question is:  Do those making this decision give a rip roaring hoot about their employees?  NO, because if they did, they would either furnish the uniforms or make sure the employees were paid better wages.

I am so glad that since retirement, I only work one day a week–thus–I will only need one shirt.

REMODELING

Monday, September 20th, 2010

I do wish I could afford to finish the kitchen makeover and needed repairs to the house.  I doubt that will ever be done as all of my uncles are dead and none of them were rich so they did not leave me a fortune.

I would like to have tiles placed on the upper wall behind the stove.  I was told this would be done February of 2009, now this couple will never do it.  I have thought about ordering apple designed tiles to go there but have learned you get what you pay for and they are cheap and reviews are not encouraging.

Both of the bathrooms need some repair and bathroom tiles would be a nice change in them.  I have such a hard time deciding what I want in decor that it would take me as long to decide on the tiles as it would to do the repair.

Would be nice if I could just take a chance and order subway tiles, seeing what this pattern would be.  I could do that know but it really is not a good idea so I will not take that plunge.

REST of my LIFE

Monday, September 20th, 2010

I think it may be time for me to begin thinking about and trying to plan the rest of my life.

My world has been turned upside down and I do not know what I want for the rest of my life.  I knew what I wanted and had it planned in my heart and mind, but all of that has changed.  I can’t go back, neither can I go forward as if nothing has changed because EVERYTHING has changed.  I do not know if I should just stay still, go right or left.

I am emotionally worse this month than last, I surely hope this is not a pattern.  If you have never been rejected by the one you love, you cannot imagine the feelings of loss, confusion, and  _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ .  Sometimes I can not even find the words to describe how I feel.

So, I need to make a plan of what and do it.  I know that I will never be the same without him, because a part of me is gone.

I think sometimes I would be better if he had died. NO! NO!!, I do not want him to die.  I would not have this feeling of rejection and so many unanswered questions.  I could at least began the process of closure.
