Time has too much credit. I never agree with the compliments paid to it. It is not a great healer. It is an indifferent and perfunctory one. Sometimes it does not heal at all. And sometimes when it seems to, no healing has been necessary.

Street Money Update! This one is actually exciting!

July 2, 2009 at 8:37 pm (Street Money) (, , , , , , , )

For me, anyhow.

It has been WAY too many days now since I found any money at all, but it was good when it was happening.

I found the basics, penny here, penny there. School, the train, in a parking lot…total of 5¢. Not bad.

And then, much to my kids disappointment because I saw it first, a whole DOLLAR!

Yes, that’s right. One green dollar bill. Laying in the grass at the SuperTarget.

So, for this week, we’ll lump it together for the end of June, we found $1.05!!

Please visit HERE for the yearly total. Happy cashing!

Hey Jesse! This is for you!

July 2, 2009 at 7:55 pm (Day to Day) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , )

It is Thursday night. July 2. I am finally updating! I have lots of stuff in the hopper. Seriously!

I even have an outdated MJ/Farrah/Billy Mays tribute post. I don’t want to overload an already overloaded internet-web-blog-memory-post-world, but I’m afraid I must. If only to tell the story my sister Amanda doesn’t want anyone to know! Please stay tuned.

I have actually been…busy. For any and all who might actually follow this thing, I had to concentrate on school and some house chores. My kids left for vacation with their grandma, but the BF is off this week too! So we did boyfriend/girlfriend things and family things and exercise things…

WARRIOR DASH! Only 2 weeks away. I have a 15 pound weight loss/fitness regime to get back on track before my kids get home next week.

5.8 pounds already gone, if you care! The secret is:

Workout like mad. Don’t eat crap. Drink water.

Sorry. Sad but true. No gimmicks, no tricks, no pills, no shortcuts. Follow my above plan and you will look and feel better in one week!

The BF is actually out tonight with his buds, catching up with some old friends by means of food and beer, the usual. So here I am. I have all night. I have chapters to read, CPR notes to go over, laundry to wash and dry and fold (blah), and YOU to talk with!

I got pictures and videos and music and maybe a little drink…(very little…in training AND alone). Go get yourself something to drink along with me and keep checking back. Let’s make Thursday the new Friday! At least for this week! Get ready. Get set.

Pilfer isn’t just the word of the day, it’s a way of life!

July 2, 2009 at 7:01 pm (Day to Day, Pictures, School News) (, , , , , , , , , )

Not for me, but for some, I’m sure.

This happened days and days ago but it’s still funny.

I received my uniforms (for school clinicals–nursing–just in case it’s been too long) in the mail, or UPS, or Fed Ex; some delivery system, and when the box arrived it had “Pilfer Proof” Tape on it. I kid you not.

I worked and managed a mailroom for, like, the last 10 years of my life, and I never saw this! I totally would have ordered it for my crew just cause it’s cool! And I would have used it on EVERYTHING!! I love it.

This is what it looks like:


That’s right. WARNING! You can just poke a giant hole in the side of this box and take all the crap out all day, but you WILL NOT bust through that tape!

I know what it’s for. My stuff was not tampered with or stolen and resealed, etc. etc., I get it. But that’s not as funny. My main goal in life is always end with a laugh. (Hopefully)
