Making Your Bed

The things you can learn to do now-a-days online is amazing… Now it’s how to make your bed properly and all these years I have been struggling with this chore mornings and evenings or when changing the sheets… How have I managed????

I never knew that there were problems doing this household chore and that there are instructions on how to do this is beyond my train of thought.

But now as I sit here I can see the problems just lurking around the corner waiting for me to either make the bed or change the sheets…. I better be careful because I am not sure what sort of mood my bed linens may be in today….. And to top it off what would happen if I didn’t make the bed???? Probably problems galore!!!

I can see it now at a theater near you “The revenge of the Bed linens” there they are communicating via Bluetooth (need to be modern here) throughout the house (say house has 3 bedrooms) each bed saying how are we going to be treated today and how should we react??? A very intriguing question indeed… Then it happens someone decides to change the bed linens on all the beds… panic breaks out and all beds are alarmed and communicate to each other saying…. “Let’s make life difficult for the person who is going to change the sheets”…. Now with the escalation of excitement and you are sitting on the edge of your seats just thinking “What will happen?”…. There and then the blanket , pillowcase, sheets make themselves into strange creatures that seem to take on their own being and not let the person make the bed, but rather they act in such a way that making the bed turns into a frustrating routine and so, then it’s time to turn to the trusty….. Make my bed APP, where all your problems will be solved in seconds. Though this only holds true if you have the bed lines that are on the app, otherwise you need professional advice from the visiting “Make your bed team” and there for a small exuberant fee you can learn how to tackle those unruly blankets, pillows and so forth.

I feel saved already!!!! Thank goodness, now I can make the bed knowing that there is support out there if I need it. I was just sweating at the thought of doing that chore. I need a cup of coffee before I approach the making the bed process.

So when you have to change the bed linens or make your bed remember approach the job with care , so as not too upset your pillow, blankets, etc…. Enjoy your day

Not What I Wanted

The same old thing again but it seems to be getting more popular through the years… returning the presents that you don’t like or don’t fit you and so with the “not what I wanted” everyone hopes to find what they want. What is the success rate of finding what you want???

Why don’t people communicate with each other before for the big day to find out exactly what the other person wishes for or what size do they wear and maybe this would avoid all the post-Christmas stress of returning the things that weren’t wanted?

In the paper and on TV I have seen and read that thousands of people around the globe are waiting endlessly in line to return their “not want I wanted’s”…. Oh the perils of giving presents!!! It seems these perils are getting more and more as society and the global world are linked closer together, and to make a person happy with the right present is harder and harder because the recipient goes online to see if there is something better than what they just received…..

When I think back we never had those choices and sure you could return the “not what I wanted”, but somehow we seemed more satisfied with what we received and not comparing quality, price and function right after unwrapping the present.

Have we lost track of being thankful that some dear person thought of us and took the time to buy or make and wrap that present, only to hear someone say to them…That’s not what I wanted!!!

A very sad feeling indeed for the person giving the present, knowing that what they picked out or made is totally wrong….. The modern form of communication at its best!

I have been lucky this year not to have received any “not what I wanted’s” and so I hope you have received some presents too that are what you wanted!

I’m waiting for Santa

It just doesn’t seem possible that in a couple of hours it is that time of year again where Santa will be visiting us all around the world.

I have been putting a bit of thought into Santa’s logistics and that guy must really be organized to get all the presents delivered on time to everyone and the time he and his helpers needed beforehand to read all the wish lists and to pack all the presents with the right kind of wrapping paper is unbelievable let alone the amount of wrapping paper needed to wrap everything… That guy Santa is simply amazing!!!

I always wonder does Santa ever have problems with the elves that work for him, because we never hear anything about them and all the great things they do for Santa so he can deliver all the presents on time and how many elves does he have working for him??? Anyone know?

Then there are the reindeer.. Great animals and the strength they must have to pull Santa and his sleigh around is really amazing. We seem to forget about all the logistics behind Santa that makes his one night a year run so smoothly.

Santa…. I am waiting here patiently for you and I just want to thank all your helpers in the background that make your one great night a year a success!

Merry Christmas to everyone out there who has read this post.

Christmas Countdown

Time is running out and it’s „ Christmas Countdown „now to do the last bit of running around for whatever it is you need for that big event day of the year 25th December … HELP!!!

My, how much emphasis is placed on a few hours and all that preparing, shopping and planning and so forth. If I was only paid for all the time I spent planning, shopping and cooking I would be a multimillionaire by now…

Please Santa: Where’s my pay check for all the work I have done throughout the years… This wish is at the top of my wish list this year and if it could only be fulfilled … Santa; please I have been good all year!! Though I doubt very much that my wish will come true so, I will settle for the recognition and thanks from everyone.

Got sidetracked with Santa there.. Sorry

Now it’s a race to fight the crowds and find that last minute present or anything that is leftover in the stores and buy the rest of the groceries… I’m starting to sweat just thinking about all that running around.. Great way to burn calories as long as I don’t stop to eat or drink anything.. More room for the Christmas bird than!!! I’m getting hungry just thinking about all that food that I still need to buy.

Plus, why did they plan Christmas on a Wednesday this year?? I need to have a word with those calendar producers about which day Christmas should be on. I always thought Santa had some influence on which day Christmas fell on, but I guess with modern times he is losing his influence too.

When I saw everyone running around yesterday looking for that perfect present they did not have a smile on their face or look cheery.. No sir they simply looked stress out!!!

Christmas countdown: it’s all about rush,rush and rush, but I want some time not too rush around and so my countdown to Christmas has started , and if I have forgotten something for that great day… Well, sorry because I don’t want to rush. I want to enjoy life too!

Enjoy your Christmas countdown whatever you decide to do!!

I Have To Ask My Bra Today…..

The world is changing and isn’t as I imagined it might be and now there’s some mention of a bra that sends signals to prevent me from eating chocolate or other such great stuff when I am feeling a tad stressed…. Where’s all the fun in life going …. Cheers!!

I do not what to wear a bra with some electronic equipment built into it and it senses that “oh dear… my wearer seems to be getting in a tizzy.” Now bra send a signal to the wearer warning her that she should under no circumstances get the idea to eat chocolate or junk food…. Party pooper!!

What do I do now?? I can’t let my bra get the best of me and control my life. I am in charge here and not my bra!! Plus what would happen if I ignored those signals and went to the store and bought myself 2 candy bars and ate them both…. Anyone know the answer? I sure don’t!! But I would feel better after eating the chocolate and who cares what my bra thinks!!

I am sure there is some scientific nonsense behind the system but I wonder how do you wash such bras in the washing machine and are the bras nice looking or are they so ugly looking that if you were seen in your bra the guy looking at you would get a heart attack because the bra is so ugly.. Or what sort of signal does the bra send off when you’re feeling in the mood?? Will the bra blow a fuse and short circuit? I don’t want to get electrocuted by my own bra just because I am in the mood… The dangers of wearing a bra seem to be lurking everywhere!

A further thought about these bras is are they guaranteed, because I am sure they would cost more than $10.00 and I wouldn’t want to buy one and after a short time the electronic system breaks down… Then what?? How will I know when I need my chocolate bar, because the signal isn’t being sent from my bra? Plus how heavy are those bras and are they figure shaped and not with ugly bulges appearing where they shouldn’t be.

There I am out with friends and we are sitting in a bar and a guy comes over and says to me.. “Ah I can see you are wearing one of those sensor bras, because of the way you look there”. Now what would my bra tell me… Punch the guy or remain cool??? Could the bra answer that question based on its sensors??? I want facts here no BS

A really scary thought is what happens if the batteries are running low and you can’t recharge them or are there bra recharger stations in the ladies rooms that you can use to recharge your bra for only $1.50 a minute…. I feel saved now; I wouldn’t want to be out and about and then be told by the sensors in my bra that the batteries are losing their charge… I could scream!!!

Though I will try to manage my life as I have been for the last….. years; just wearing normal bras without sensors and using my brain to tell me whether or not I should eat some chocolate or not.

Gals enjoy your life & chocolate bar(s) because we only live once!

Rush Out and Buy!

The same problem every year… the right present and now all I read is that I have to rush out and buy something for Christmas. Where do I rush too and what do I buy??? Those articles are full of suggestions and tips as to how I can spend all my hard earned cash on that present that really isn’t needed and the only winner is the retailer who emptied my wallet and has a grin on their face….

I have wandered the malls and looked in many a store to find something to “rush out and buy” but in the end I still haven’t bought anything, because I haven’t seen anything that is really the present of the year 2013! There are sales and offers or buy one get one free but that still isn’t what I am looking for.

I feel misdirected as to where to rush too and buy…. Any ideas out there????

What do my friends and family want for Christmas and is it something I want to buy them??? My “rush out and buy” seems to be slowing down and by the time that day comes.. The good’ol 25th December I am still not sure if I will have bought anything by then.

I could “rush out and buy”:

Clothing….. Have enough of that.

Toiletries…. Got plenty of that too… why more, just to collect dust!

Electronics… How many devices does one need and the cables and chargers alone cost as must as the device itself.

Gift certificates… great but impersonal.. And how much should the certificate be worth, and is it from the right store???

My list could be endless here and I am in a rut as to “rush out and buy”… I’ll take my time and think about it before I spend all my money in one place or at all !

Tis the season to be jolly and spending!

Holiday… Make-up

Now, I really don’t know what to do since now there is the holiday make-up that you should have as a gal.. I thought my make-up was fine until I read the article about holiday make-up that told me I need that special touch to make me glow on that day.

I think just by standing in the kitchen cooking the meal I will be a glow from the heat put off from the stove, so why the fuss, just cook the holiday meal and there you go.. Rosy cheeks for free. Ok, I’ll admit it is not the same as going out and buying blusher, but it is a natural color that you get in your face from cooking the meal and maybe even more color too if there is someone there who doesn’t like your cooking….. Christmas is the season to be jolly

I wonder what the holiday make-up colors are?? Traditional red & green or a more modern tone that will liven up my face…. I need help!!! It seems to me as the years pass there is always more to think and worry about with Christmas approaching at the speed of light…..

My mom never gave a second thought about which make-up she would be wearing on Christmas day. She just dolled herself up and if I remember rightly she looked good for a mom. Mom’s had that mom look back then, not like moms now-a-days.

Since I started writing here; I think I’ll go tomorrow and have a Christmas make-up consultation and see what they suggest. Though I am a bit worried, because when you see how some of those models in the magazines look with their make-up on and if I looked like that I may scare everyone away and truly that is something that I don’t want to do. Plus, I have never seen anyone walking down the street with that sort of make-up on. I must be living in the wrong town…..

Personally, I like the color of the make-up which I have but still the thought not having the right Christmas make-up is a trifle worrying. Do other women worry about this problem too???
I think when I am at the office tomorrow I will make a questionnaire and send it around to all the women and see what they have to say about this subject and then I can draw my conclusion from that. Ok, maybe I should only ask the women who wear make-up, because there are a few who don’t wear any and that could sidetrack me from my Christmas make-up problem. Life can be so complicated!

Questionnaire:
1. What is Christmas make-up? No idea, never heard of it
2. What colors for Christmas? Red & Green… ok, green eye shadow & red blusher, lipstick maybe
3. How much do you want to spend? Nothing… I’m too cheap!

Well, I guess my Christmas make-up problem could be easier solved then I thought.

Gals, enjoy your Christmas make-up.. no matter which color you choose!
