It is Friday Internet, and I am nosy.

  1. What store/s is it impossible for you to emerge empty-handed?
  2. Where do you go when you need to spend a little bit of make-me-feel-better money?
  3. What store did you used to frequent but no longer find appealing?
  4. If you opened your own retail store (not a food-service establishment), what would be its theme, name, and target clientele?
  5. If you had to purchase all your friends’ gifts at one store for the rest of your life, which would you choose?

What store/s is it impossible for you to emerge empty-handed?

Since I don’t frequent many stores, it would have to be Walmart

Where do you go when you need to spend a little bit of make-me-feel-better money?

I shop online at Baker’s Catalog

What store did you used to frequent but no longer find appealing?

J.C. Penny’s

If you opened your own retail store (not a food-service establishment), what would be its theme, name, and target clientele?

It would be a spa/massage/make-up store…centered on pampering women.

If you had to purchase all your friends’ gifts at one store for the rest of your life, which would you choose?

Bed, Bath and Beyond

And a huge Happy Birthday to my Aunt Cindy and cousin Amber.

I have never been a patient person.

I can not say for sure, but I am almost positive that when I was born, I came out saying ‘Feed me now!  Why did it take so long to get here?  Where are my clothes?   Change my diaper!  Aren’t you going to feed me already?”

But in the last 4 years I have learned to be patient.

To sit quietly and wait …patiently even… especially when this is all you have to look at.

PS.   The boy is good.   The docs know what is wrong with him and are fixing it.

Hello Internet.

Hello TWD’ers.

The boy has a medical procedure this morning.

I have been crazy insane, so needless to say…no TWD was made.

And I wanted to make it so bad, but with all that has gone on this weekend…I totally forgot.

I don’t have much for you today Internet.

This past week has been just a wee bit frazzling.

  • I found out that the boy is engaged
  • Then he got fired from his job
  • Then he got sick
  • Then he was in the hospital
  • I found out just how uncomfortable hospital chairs are
  • I took a mental health day yesterday and it was good.
