5 Words That Change Everything

Life is forever are my five words for life changes....what are yours?

Today I feel like a jerk. I called the maintenance man to report that the garbage disposal was grinding severely. He arrived soon thereafter.  I did take a flashlight before he came and looked to make sure there was nothing that I dropped which may have gotten caught. Nothing there, good.  As he shone his flashlight down the sink and used a fancy tool, up he came with one of my blue bottle caps. Was I embarrassed, of course, as I said: "I looked and never saw it". I also told him: "I always look before I panic since I dropped my diamond ring down there and fished it out". Somehow my look must have let him know that this was a joke and we both laughed. I asked him kindly to just send the bill to the landloard and please don't tell him exactly what happened. He gave me his word and said he was never here. Now that's a good guy.

Thought for Friday

Since I have been a worrier most of my life trying to control all the circumstances around me, a very wise person gave me this quote and I am sharing this with you today.

What are you thinkin'

Telephone, ring, ring, ring.  I don't believe someone is waking me up at 7 a.m. True story. I am sooo tired of everyone getting me up before I am ready. I went to work for a looooong time and was up at 6 a.m.  It  is the guy who is supposed to check out the leak in the roof  at the the condo, which I am only renting. He arrives and I can't wait to tell him, "You woke me up with your call". I really think I'm justified telling him this, because I thought it was way too early but his reply was: "Well, if you wanna catch a golfer, you gotta get 'em early or you're 'outta luck".  Guess what pal, I'm not a golfer and 7 a.m. is an obnoxious time to call anyone to make an appointment. So much for getting extra shut eye. I hope tomorrow morning I can decide when to put my toes on the floor.

Technological challenges

Well now that everyone knows I am someones mother and have (4) grandchildren, how can I really say what I'm thinking.  Just think of me as another human being full of great stuff and faults. I cry when I laugh and find it hard to laugh when I cry.

Oh, about today, up at 8:45 a.m. and already disgusted with the lawnmowers running outside, debris blowers, shrub clippers and all the hoopla that goes with property maintenance. Oops, the 'phone, I answer only to find the caller gone. I'm hitting the wrong buttons. Then I deleted the caller. It was the landlord. I need coffee; phew, now I can figure out what I'm doing wrong with this new cell 'phone and come to a conclusion as to why I delete all my callers when I end a call.

I'm thinking, oh, I do have his number. "Hi Paul, sorry, we are playing 'phone tag." I'm not telling him what I did.

Dang, I have to read the instruction book. I don't learn too well reading. It's hands on for me. Push, push those buttons, but I'll read it. I'm thinking, no one will ever know how stupid I feel except for people reading my blog. Oh please, don't feel bad for this grandma; she gets to sleep late and have sweet dreams about her family.

It's My First Time

Blogging that is.

My daughter and granddaughter came to visit. We decided to go to lunch. Naturally, it was pouring as soon as we were ready to leave the restaurant, although it was beautifully sunny when we left the house. I  took my shoes off running to the car. Oh, how wonderful it is to run in the rain again barefoot. This time I didn't play in the puddles as I did as a child. Get wet? who cares. Family time is more important than wet clothes.
