My favorite brother and I had Lincoln Logs growing up and I loved them. Legos are the hot now and are loved by kids of all ages. Obviously.
Home may be where the heart is… but it’s where the work is at for me. Crazy busy with little free time for much else. My fitbit let me know that I walked a grand total of 4k steps all week. ALL WEEK! Typically, I do 3 times that at least a day.
Need me? You can find me right inside that window on the right.
Facebook is still filled with political posts from those who support Trump and those who think he is worthless. I see so many Trump haters sharing fake news over and over again. I’m so sick of it. Trump is in and Hillary is done. No matter who you supported in the election, it is over.
If the Democrats want to dominate in the next presidential election, they probably need to focus on something other than nagging. Not sure who said it… but I know you’ve heard it before… and it could apply here:
You can’t build yourself up by tearing others down.
Think happy thoughts!
My favorite brother ordered flowers for his wife from 1800flowers. The leaves were wilted and dead. He and my favorite sister-in-law ordered flowers for me from a local florist and they were beautiful!
And… I also got flowers from Perry, Ben and Colette… and they were gorgeous too. I’ve never been disappointed when receiving or ordering locally.
So next time you want to send flowers — don’t use a company that’s going to keep a chunk of your money and pass the order to who knows where. Order locally no matter where you’re sending your bouquet.
I’m posting this early… before green beer and all that other St. Patrick’s Day/Birthday celebration stuff because I want to share a photo of something I got last week to enjoy during my birthday week…
Flowers are always a thoughtful gift… but you guys, I haven’t seen Sonya in YEARS upon years. My chin remains resting on my desk! Still, my eyes enjoyed the beauty and my nose the fragrance — and the thoughtful gesture made getting old(er) just a little easier.
I love Carnival cruises and I’ve been on many… LOTS, you guys. I’m subscribed to receive ‘deals’ from them via email. When specials were displayed that interested me, I would click on the link to learn more. And then, the next day… Carnival would call me.
The “link click/then call” process happened a couple more times before I told the representative that I didn’t appreciate being pestered by phone calls all the gosh darned time.
She let me know that every single time a link within email is clicked, their system moves that visitor to a call-list.
I stopped clicking the links — and Carnival might’ve lost a sale. No… probably. They probably missed a booking from me had I not been pushed to buy.
Guess I’ll stay home and be lazy!
Life has a habit of moving way too fast — the older we get, the faster it seems to go. My birthday is in the near future, you guys. While I’m glad I keep having them, I sure wish the time between them was longer.
For the record, the only time looking in the mirror is fun is when the reflection is something other than me. 🙂
Colette climbed in Gracie’s bed talking non-stop (like always). She was telling an elaborate tale embellished with tiny baby puppy cuteness about how she remembered when Gracie was first born.
Not exactly the story I remember… Gracie was a rescue. The vet guessed her to be around 2 years-old when we brought her home — and that was before Coco was born.
Why is it exactly that lately my son has his nose in his iPhone in every single photo? Sometimes I think he does it on purpose just to get me wound up enough to spar.
I’ll admit that I’m pretty darned good at arguing and can usually hold my own. But this guy was taught by the best and has had a whole lot of practice. He wins by perseverance.
Have to get that vitamin D from someplace… and there’s nothing that helps my back more:
They say tanning is bad — and it probably is. Funny how when there’s something you like, you only read the articles that agree with your opinion or make you feel better about whatever it is you’re doing. Like… coffee is good for you — and the difference between UVA and UVB rays that makes it ok to bake.
This is especially true in politics, but I’m not going there…
This photo may be awful, but the subject is adorable. Don’t you agree?
The bed she’s sleeping on is a Coolaroo — and if you have a dog, you NEED one. Not expensive, is supposed to be easy on joints, is cooler than other pet beds, and Dharma and Gracie approve. So much so that I had to get a second one to accommodate.
I had an issue and had to call Apple support. Afterward, I received an email survey. Being in the Ultimate Customer Experience® business, I find it interesting what companies think their most important feedback is. For AppleCare, here’s what they want to know:
- The Advisor had excellent communication skills.
- The Advisor was knowledgeable.
- The Advisor was helpful.
- The Advisor cared.
- The Advisor listened.
There wasn’t one question asking if my problem — my technical issue — was resolved.
While I think those 5 questions are extraordinarily important, I also think it might be nice for Apple to know if my easy to talk to, knowledgeable, helpful, caring, listening Advisor was able to SATISFY my needs and FIX my issue.
I ticked the “strongly agree” box on every one of the above, then Googled until I found how to get my ‘broken’ Mac specific app to work. Oh well… still have major love for all things MAC.
