You can bet that my sister and her hubby are glad that they used acoustical soundproof foam in the garage walls, since the son Tommy received a nice set of drums for Christmas from his grandparents. I swear I think our parents do things like this on purpose, although they act all surprised and innocent like when we question their actions. But since the drum set is only allowed in the garage I think that will reduce the noise a whole heck of a lot. It’s a good thing that they have heating and air conditioning in their garage since I believe Tommy will be spending a lot of his time (along with his musician friends) in there.No Comments »

The other week after talking with a few gals at work about the upcoming holidays, all I have been thinking about is Christmas presents, decorations, family dinners, and Christmas trees. Christmas has always been my favorite holiday and since it was right around the corner I decided it was time to go shopping instead of waiting until the last minute to do it all and stress out.
After a few days after work shopping around at different stores in town, I decided to take a late night after the kids were in bed to search the net for some things for the upcoming holidays that I didn’t find or gather at the local stores. I came across a really neat site that offered cute snowbabies ornaments that I fell in love with. I ordered multiple ornaments since they came with an awesome price and I am so excited to decorate our Christmas tree this year and watch the kids and my father open up some of these gifts I had gathered for them.No Comments »
You Tube is always giving us entertaining videos to keep us laughing and coming back for more. The best ones are often the ones with animals in them. The majority are of cats and dogs but certainly not all of them. I can spend over an hour on You Tube just clicking away from funny, cute and adorable videos to another. Good stuff.No Comments »
Last month my girlfriend finally finished a two year technical school program so that she can be a medical assistant. They had their graduation and she invited me to come, since her mother lives so far away and couldn’t make it up here for the ceremony. I was delighted to go – it was not boring at all. I found it rather inspiring to see all the young people – and a few older ones, as well all lined up in graduation robes and hats to get their diplomas. It really was an honor to be invited.
One thing I never realized is that the people in the doctors offices have to buy their own scrubs, lab coats and nursing uniforms. I don’t know why, but I guess I always assumed that the doctor’s office and hospitals provided those for the employees. Most of the other industries that I know of that require employees to wear uniforms provide them to the employees. But I guess with the medical industry they cannot afford to provide uniforms for everyone. Just keeping up with a huge wardrobe in all those different sizes would be a nightmare.
My girlfriend says that she will buy medical scrubs online to not only save money but to get some new colors, prints and styles that are not easily found in the local uniform stores.
Check out blueskyscrubs.com if you want to see a great selection of scrubs at very good prices. This is where my girlfriend says she shops and finds some pretty good selections and decent prices that fit into her budget.No Comments »
Last minute ordeals are not my cup of tea these days. I remember the days when I could just drop everything and go with the flow, but those days are long gone. I really miss the days of being so spontaneous, but it happens to the best of us, I fear.
Yesterday morning my sister called in a panic and made be promise to go with her that night to a big party that she could not miss and could not face going alone. Being as her phone call woke me up, I wasn’t 100% awake and didn’t quite realize the commitment that I had just made. It takes a lot of time and effort to get ready for a business party. Dressing up and stepping out isn’t something that I do that often so I have gotten out of the habit of preparing for an event like this. But I can truly say that it was worth all the hassle and a good time was had by all.
The house that this party was held at was one of the most elegant houses I’ve ever had the pleasure of being in. Too bad that the owners aren’t around most of the time to enjoy all of it’s benefits. I really loved the slate water fountains that they had in located at various strategist positions in the house. There is something about water that just soothes my mind, body and soul. I would give anything to have a master bath such as the one that these folks had in their master bedroom. If I had a jacuzzi in my bathroom, I swear you would never see me, I’d be in there the majority of my time. I can guarantee that!No Comments »
