I must be some kind of magnet for lonely men. My “other” message folder always has a new message from a man telling me how beautiful and sexy I am. And that he hopes we can be friends first and develop a relationship.
Really??? I’m a beyond middle age woman and these are mostly younger men. My Facebook page is pretty private and I sure don’t do anything to attract this attention.
Then tonight I got an actual friend request from a man I’ve never heard of. I get lots of friend requests from people I don’t know because of my position in the community…but they are local people and they think they know me even though I may not really know them (in which case I accept and then lock my page up from them).
Are there really that many desperate lonely people out there? Is it me? Or is this happening to everyone?
I had another really good day. Got lots accomplished without adding too much new stuff on my to do list.
But then I came home to find my new IKEA catalog in the mailbox. I love IKEA! So I spent time after dinner perusing each page, dreaming of living in an IKEA house. Seriously, I love those tiny little homes they create in their stores. I think I would like to run away and live in one all by myself.
See, simple girl…simple pleasures.
A little over a year ago, it was discovered I had high blood pressure. My mom had HBP and I am confident that’s what caused her death – she wouldn’t take blood pressure mess. She was sure she could control it “naturally”. Now she is “naturally” dead. I think that’s just dumb for such a treatable disease. I have no problem taking my meds…$10 every 3 months at WalMart.
But, I still have to go to the doctor to get my prescription. Last week I noticed I only had a week left on my prescription. So, I called the dreaded doctor’s office…and they were on VACATION!!! How dare they be gone. Actually, they got me in today. I thought that was pretty good since I didn’t call until yesterday afternoon. So $75 later, prescription in hand, I’m feeling pretty good.
The doctor said I was the picture of health. He was talking about my blood pressure not my wallet I would guess (since he cleaned my wallet out!).
So, I’m thankful for my meds to keep my BP under control. I’m NOT thankful that it cost me so much for him to take my blood pressure, listen to my lungs and heart and send me on my way.
It was actually a pretty good day, especially for a Monday. We had to shoot just a little bit more footage for our campaign film today. So, that meant I wasn’t in the office. Of course that also means Tuesday could be Monday.
Anyway, we started at Kindergarten Countdown. Those adorable kids never cease to amaze me. It is so nice to be loved. And they are all thrilled to see me. Each of them wants my undivided attention. Of course that is impossible. We needed to get enough footage for about five seconds so I wasn’t there that long.
But the kids got out their iPads and worked on their letters. I did get to help a couple of them. Did I say how much I love these kids? Probably because I can leave. I know for sure that I could not be there all day with them, but they are adorable. And they are like sponges soaking up as much learning as they can.
The rest of the day is a busy blur, but the few minutes I had with the kids was worth it all. I’m thankful for the opportunity I have to spend a few minutes with them. So much so, that I am going to try and volunteer once a week to go in one of the classrooms and help for an hour.
Now, if I can just survive Tuesday.
I am so sorry for taking you for granted the last few years. I hope you will forgive me and come back home. I miss you terribly. Things just aren’t as much fun without you. Fall is getting pushy and I’m sure Winter is trying to get here soon. I love you Summer. Please come back.
We set a record today for the lowest high on this date. 69 degrees is not my idea of summer weather. I really am thankful for sun and warm/hot days. I’m a summer girl. I’ve been staying inside bundled up all day. And the forecast isn’t very promising either.
But what can I possibly be thankful for on a day like today? Tons of things. I’m thankful for my blankets, slippers, fuzzy bathrobe and hot cocoa. I’m thankful I had time to start a new book (Legends of Windemere). I’m thankful for a day off from work. I’m thankful for the yummy bleu cheese stuffed hamburgers I grilled out for dinner. I’m thankful for those bits of sunshine that have tried to peak out off and on all day.
