"Never let life's hardships disturb you…no one can avoid problems, not even saints or sages."
– Nichiren Daishonin

Good morning. Mutt never got his bath yesterday. He is rolling on the floor, Freyja is chasing his legs as the swing around.

When I started at Wal-Mart they wouldn't use my full name. I finally made my own name tag with MARYALICE on it. Customers spend their time trying to pronounce it. When they finally get it right, they say it sounds like the name of a southern bell. I tell them my British mother named me. They then say it must be my southern father must have run the names together. No my Texan father called me Mary.

Well about a week ago of the managers called "Miss Mary", I answered. She then told me that she now had two Miss Marys, I suggested she use my real name. Well a new casher called out to me the other day. Her name tag said Mary. She wanted to know how I got MARYALICE on my name tag. I told her I did it myself. She said she didn't want to put the Alice under under the Mary, she wanted it run it together like mine. She is Maryalice, I'm MaryAlice, but with our names all in caps they are the same She doesn't look like a southern bell either, She is about 6 inches shorter then me, about the same weight, and I'm not sure which is darker her hair, eyes or skin. I don't see very many MaryAllice's and this is the first time I've ever worked with one.

Good morning, I did get a walk in yesterday and will try for one today, but I woke up with a headache and can't breath. I worked 8 hours yesterday, am off today and work 8 hours Sat.

Mutt needs a bath so bad. He hasn't had one in awhile since He won't get in the tub on his own, I'm not strong enough to put him in the tub and it is too cold to wash him outside. The temp is going up to 70, not good be better so this afternoon maybe he will get a bath.

Good morning. A beautiful day out, Mutt is ready for his walk. I want to walk but am wondering if I need to save my strength, I think I'll go for a short walk cause I want to. I thought I went in at 2 today, but just checked the board and it says noon, so I guess I better get on line and check my schedule.

Good morning.
We have sun and clouds so not sure what the weather will do.
We get to be grandparents of our daughter's cat and dog next when they go to see their daughter in college in Texas. We take care of them when the family is gone on a trip.
Some ice just melted off the roof and had a loud bang.
Need to do some reading today. and hopefully write a book review.
Therapy again for the knee on Thursday so I need to do some exercises myself today.
Have a good day.

Good morning. I'm fighting a cold luckily I'm off today. I don't like to work with the customers hen my nose is running, but don't have any choice. Management wasn't real happy because I kept stopping to use hand sanitizer. When they would give me the "look" for not calling the next customer fast enough, I would point out to the next customer that there was a survey on their receipt. There have always been surveys, but no one has ever pointed them out.

Every event that a man would master must be mounted on the run, and no man ever caught the reins of a thought except as it galloped by him
Oliver Wendell Holmes Sr.

Good morning, I'm trying to find a way to talk with Beka about what is going on with her mother. Beka is hiding her true feelings. She acts like nothing is going on, but then yesterday I had to get her from school for cramps that came and went all afternoon. Kellie is charged with aggregated assault with a deadly weapon. The deadly weapon really increases the time and the aggregated means she has to serve 80% of the time before she is eligible or parol. The lawyer is talking 5 years at best hopefully in a mental hospital, but this is Texas and that is a long shot. Beka is holding on to Kellie's lawyer getting her off with 6 months in a mental hospital. I hope Beka is right and don't want to take her hope from her, but wonder about preparing her for the fact 5 to 10 years is more likely.

Beka's brothers have always teased her and well acted like big brothers. Now they are calling her and sending her hugs and kisses. Beka hasn't quite gotten her head around this change, but I think she likes it.

When love and skill work together, expect a masterpiece.

- John Ruskin

Good morning Something interesting happened yesterday, about 8 in the morning a guy knocked on the door. He had tried to turn around in our driveway and ended up in the ditch. He wanted us to pull him out. I told him I didn't think our mini could do the job and they should go to the horse ranch next door and ask if they would. They had a tractor. He said he call someone. About 1 in the afternoon when i was getting ready for work someone pounded on our door. It sounded like they were going to beat it in. It was the police. The guys that drove in our ditch were turning around didn't want to go to the ranch because they had just they had just robbed it.

I saw something on the todays show. Myths about fast food.

Myth one, if you order off the $ menu it is cheaper. The lady bought food for a family of 4 for a week, she did have seasonings and some staples at home, the family eat a well balanced diet with plenty of fruit and veggies. It cost her $125. The man eat off the $ menu at fast food places, just him it cost him $123. He got lots of fat and next to no fruit or veggies.

Myth 2 it is fast. The lady spent 15 to 45 min a per meal cooking for her family. The man spent an ave. of 30 min a meal getting fast food.

The jail wants to be able to tell where a person is calling and cell phones can be any where.

"If one scheme of happiness fails, human nature turns to another; if the first calculation is wrong, we make a second better."
– Jane Austen

Good morning, today is an exercise day. not the normal weight loss exercises, but the ones to get the kinks out of this old body. I'm only 59, the Dr says my life expectancy is 105, most of the time I don't feel like what I see in other 60 year olds, but today I feel it.

Kellie kept trying to call yesterday. I couldn't have answered her calls if I wanted to. The jail doesn't let the inmate calls connect to cell phones. Beka is so upset, she thinks her mother will think she hates her because she won't take her calls. I wasn't going to do anything, but it looks like for Beka's sake I need to find a way for her to write to her mother. I have an address, but haven't been able to get Kellie's inmate # and the jail won't deliver a letter without the inmate number.

"The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty."
– Winston Churchill

Good morning I thought I went in at 2 this afternoon, no I have to be there at 10 this morning. I sure wish I had a set time.

Several have asked about Beka. Beka has started getting her own water. I still make sure she has a glass of water before school and takes a bottle with her. Beka is upset about her mom. I haven't given her many facts, for 1 I don't know much and 2 I keep don't think she needs to know much. Her 1/2 brothers saw what happen so she will learn more then she wants to know from them.

One thing. Beka has been living with me since her mother started having problem. Her father will be transferring from community collage in San Diego to university in LA. Now he is thinking he should get a place where Beka can stay with him since he feels she should be with a parent. We haven't decided what to do and DS hasn't found a place in LA. Beka has mixed feelings. She wants to be with her father, but we live in the country and she has a one acre yard, climbed trees rides her bike and does all the things children can do in the country they can't do in the city.

Beka's mother was in treatment and she ran away. I had suggested maybe that wasn't a good idea, and she she was beginning to think I was right, but hadn't gotten to where she was ready to go back and since she hadn't done anything to suggest she was a danger to herself or others there was nothing anyone could do.

"The most important things to do in the world are to get something to eat, something to drink, and somebody to love you."
– Brendan Behan

Good morning, I have 3 loads of sheets and a load of cloths, it is raining and not expected to stop till late tonight. I'm off today, but go back to work tomorrow so I have to wash cloths. Looks like my house will have cloths hung all over it.

Beka is running slow this morning, but it is hard to be upset with her. Yesterday we got the call that her mother had totally flipped. Kellie had stabbed her boy friend in the gut, putting him in the hospital with a lacerated liver and cut intestines. If the boy friend doesn't have any infections from the bacteria in the intestines he should make a full rapid recovery. Kellie is of course is in jail charged with assault with a deadly weapon. One of beka's 1/2 brothers called us. He was very upset and didn't say when this happen, but Beka spent Sunday with her mom and the boy friend and the brother called last night. This isn't helping a little girl settle in.

Good morning I'm rushing this morning. I thought I go in at 9:30 this morning, but just doubled check I go in at 9. Wal-Mart changed the way cashiers check in and get their registers. The only person I know happy about it is the lady that sits at the fitting room, she gets to see co workers. I don't know if they will work the kinks out or if this will be another thing they do to piss the whole company off then drop the whole idea. Workers satisfaction at Wal-Mart so high they had to bring it dow

A strong positive mental attitude will create more miracles than any wonder drug.

Good morning, The super bowl about killed me. Up till kick off people were getting stuff for the game. The stock people in beer and chips had to work over tome last night. I had people with a cart of chips and 10 to 12 suit cases of beer. After the game start we had the female members of the family shopping to get away from the game or doing the shopping they didn't want to do while everyone was getting super bowl stuff. Baked fired on them because every one else did the same thing.

I value the friend who for me finds time on his calendar, but I cherish the friend who for me does not consult his calendar.

- Robert Brault

Morning, I think it is, I worked till 11 last night and go in at 11 this morning. It was a mad house yesterday and I expect worse today. Yesterday all the people that were trying to get every thing for the Super Bowl, today all the people that forgot something for a Super Bowl Party, and the blue laws say we can't sell beer till after noon. many cashiers figure we will see many of the ones that bought beer yesterday again this afternoon because the beer didn't make it to today.

They just came on TV to say the vets are seeing ,more and more dogs that have eaten something they shouldn't. Remember people meds aren't good for dogs, Tylenol is poison to dogs, but the pills look like treats to dogs. Many dog meds are made to taste good. Many cleaning products are poisonous to dogs. Read your label, they will say that pets and small children should not come in contact with them keep them locked up, but dogs will lick the counters before the counter dries. Think of your dog as a curious 2 year old. They will find it and they will put it in their mouth.

Good morning, This is the 1st anniversary of Daddy's passing. Mom posted some of his favorite quotes. As you can tell by her typing this isn't a real good day for her. She did say she was going to try to go to work at the library today but has asked another volunteer to stay with her.

"Happiness is neither virtue nor pleasure nor this thing nor that but simply growth. We are happy when we are growing."
– William Butler Yeats

Good morning, I'm off today and looking forward to taking Mutt and walking the kinks out of this old body.

Beka came home yesterday and said her teacher suggested she read Tom Sawyer and Hunk Finn. Since they have rewritten these 2 classics to make them politically correct. Some that have read the "new" additions say they ruined the classics and the writing isn't Mark Twain's. I found Hunk Finn for Kindle on Amazon, but was having trouble find Tom Sawyer, when Beka came running in "look what I found" she had the copy of Tom Sawyer her father had won in '87 for winning a reading contest.

Mary Alice -- It was Mom's birthday this month. She passed a year and a half ago. My brothers and I got together Sat for SIL birthday. My youngest SIL (I have five) noticed that I was wearing a knit top that was my Mom's and commented that it was one of her favorites. There are many good memories and I think on them often.

"Invited to a reunion to revisit with my youthful past, brought so many memories I could barely wait until the date came around. But, alas, I had discovered, like so many before, I'm sure, to visit with my past, to my memories I am bound!" emoticon

Barb and Mary Alice had to smile when I read your posts! So true! Good luck at the dentist! Not my favorite place to go. And Mary Alice, It's like deja vous with my grandkids. Kids still push the limits! Hang in there!

Hello, Special G's! Have not posted here, but I joined about 2 weeks ago. Not quite sure how often I can post. Off to the dentist this afternoon. Chipped a filling in my front tooth.

Has anybody noticed that as we get older, the grand kids are surprised at what we know and their parents are surprised at what we have forgotten? My son lovingly teases that I can now hide my own Easter eggs. DD says she can shop for me for special occasions with me with her because I "will forget" what she has bought for me for a gift. Sad part is I actually have done that! emoticon

We are special! emoticon

"The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled."
– Plutarch

Good morning. I go in at 9 this morning, but it is only a 4 hour day. My weight is going the wrong way. I really think it is these crazy hours. My body doesn't know when to eat, so I eat all the time and I'm too tired to resist. Daddy's birthday is Friday and Sat is a year since his passing. That isn't helping much.

Beka is reminding me how it was raising her father. Beka put put down your book and eat breakfast. Beka time to put down the book and get ready for school. Beka it's bed time, no you can't read another chapter before bed. Beka put down your book, turn out the ligh and go to sleep.

I'm also aching this morning! Either all the running around this weekend or the weather. We have freezing rain and our lane is a skating rink! Staying home and cleaning up my craft room. Enjoy your day!

There comes a time when for every additon of knowledge you forget something that you knew before. It is of the highest importance therefore not to have useless facts elbowing out the useful ones.
Arthur Conant Doyle born May 22, 1859

Good morning, one of those days. I got off at 11 last night and go in at 9 this morning, i tried to come home and right to the shower and bed, no I had problems getting to sleep.
