Happy Mother’s Day!

HI,
I reposted this from a past post, but mom’s are always cool people no matter what.
Have a great Mother’s Day – all the moms out there in the world!

Moms are the Best!
Posted on May 10, 2012 by sueromeiser(copyright)

Mother’s day is coming up, and why is that only one day a year? Moms should be celebrated everyday for what they do or did and not only for one day.

My mom did great things for me and put up with all my nonsense when I was a kid. My mom was always there for me when I needed a shoulder to cry on or she was my friend too and I could do lots of things with her. I didn’t see my mom as just a mom that should be thanked only on one day a year.

I was thankful everyday of the year. She taught me so many wonderful things and taught me to be strong and not let things get you down so quickly. I love my mom and I will admit it, even though she can’t hear/ read what I say. But I bet if she could read a blog from heaven she would smile at what I wrote.

Moms are great! My mom always had baked cookies and on cold days when I came home from school there on the table waiting for me were wonderful cookies fresh out of the oven.

My mom made sure that I always did my homework; even when I didn’t want too and now I am thankful for that. My mom taught me how to cook – ok, not every meal turned out but I never starved.

My mom taught me to be patient and not always be in a hurry or how to appreciate the small things in life because they are important too.

My mom was a bundle of wisdom in my eyes and always will be with her smile on her face or her laughing about something. The woman had a sense of humor too and she passed all those great things onto me.

Mom I love you!

So everyone out there don’t forget your mother wherever she is and all the great things that she did for you!

Cellulite and Fake Tans

Gals you cannot believe it ,but I read the other day that with a fake tan my cellulite disappears… Now how this works I can only guess????

The questions are just bouncing around my brain “Cellulite and Fake Tans”??? And the worse part is, is that my brain cannot answer the question… I’m getting old!!

But as a gal I don’t give-up so quickly and the idea that my skin will have an orange hue to it along with no cellulite is an interesting thought, I think…. Believe it or not?

So, I decided to pop-out to my local drug store and check out all those fake tanning products and believe me there were plenty to choose from. What I noticed while I was standing there looking at all those fake tanning products and when I picked one up to read how to use it; the print seemed to have gotten smaller. I mean really now “What is that supposed to be with the small print?” There on the back of the bottle in micro-mini print was how to use it.

I think I need a microscope to read what is written, otherwise I have no idea what is written there. I went to get myself one of those shopping trollies with a magnifying glass.. I felt like a jerk, but I wanted to read what was written on the bottle.

There before my eyes was written on the bottle was that this product will give you the feeling that you don’t have anymore cellulite.

This stuff is exactly what I need and so I bought 2 bottles of fake tanning products, which almost bankrupted me at the same time after paying $75.00, but hey I want to look young and with a suntan without the sun.

Once home I rushed into the bathroom and took a shower and was going to apply the fake tanning gel to my skin when I noticed that in the small print it said “Try this product on a small spot of skin before applying it to your whole body.”…. Who follows those instructions????? Not me!!

Though I did have some worries about stripes from not applying the product correctly.

Once finished I should wait a bit and then my instant fake tan will/would appear…. So, with my trusty cup of coffee in my hand I waited it out and kept an eye on my cellulite to see if it would disappear…. No luck so far after 2 hours, just an orange colored hue which didn’t do much for my looks….

I looked more like I dunked myself into an orange colored bath, like you would color an Easter egg. Thank goodness in these times; I don’t or shouldn’t leave the house so that none of my friends or the people at work will/would see me. Because if they did it would be an OMG moment to say the least!!!

Just imagine I go to work and ask my PA to do something for me and she see’s me with my orange hue skin color….. The rest is history!

My cellulite is still there, My skin has an orange color hue to it and I am still at home. Sometimes things aren’t as they seem/ say they will be….. That’s life!

Challenges of Chocolate

There you have it in a nutshell… The challenges of chocolate, and the temptations of every time you go to the grocery store.

I recently experienced this problem which really was somewhat of an experience.

There I was in my local grocery store and my trolly was half full with toilet paper (for what reason I can’t tell you- I guess it was a go with the flow moment???) After I pulled myself back into reality, that I needed something to eat, because I can’t eat toilet paper. I steered my trolly through the aisles putting things into my trolly that I could eat and there and then around the next corner was the aisle with chocolate…..
My heart was racing, and my brain said to me “you must go down this aisle”. I did and there before my eyes I was standing alone looking at both sides of the aisle filled with chocolate.

You can not image what a “rush” that was for me after being stranded in my house for a couple of weeks…
I wanted to run my arm behind all the chocolate and let it fall into my trolly! The feeling was overwhelming. Never before had I felt the joy of strolling down an aisle with chocolate before.

Maybe some of you out there know this feeling too???

I pulled myself back into reality and just stood there and thought “which sort of chocolate should I buy?” Because every piece of chocolate was now tempting; not like in the past were I would walk down the aisle where the chocolate was and just ignore it. Now the chocolate aisle is/ was a feeling / experience in my new world were I don’t get to go out every day.

After standing there for what seemed to me like an eternity , which probably was may be 5 minutes of joy for me; I decide to buy 5 chocolate bars, and when I got home I ate one of them right away , and it gave me the feeling that was indescribable because no money in the world could replace that feeling I had while I was savoring every bite of my chocolate bar.

Plus, the joy that I had just holding onto the candy bar – I had never in the past thought about it and always took these simple life’s pleasures for granted, but now since having to stay home and only go out when allowed too, I have taken a different view on these little life’s pleasures.

Next time you are grocery shopping, treat yourself to one of life’s little pleasures, and when you get home you can sit back and enjoy it!

Enjoy

Need a Coffee Break?

HI everyone out there in the internet world who may be enjoying a nice cup of coffee and wondering to themselves ” I need a little laugh today”.
Enjoy your coffee!

Coffee in my car
Posted on April 2, 2012 by sueromeisr-copyright

Most people love to drink a fresh cup of coffee no matter where you are; whether out and about or just hanging out. There’s nothing better than a good cup of coffee to make your day go better or just to relax and enjoy it.

With the coffee to go rage that’s one thing, but by the time you get back into your car the coffee has cooled off a bit and that can be somewhat disappointing if it’s cold outside.

But there is supposedly a new gadget that can help you while you are driving. How it works I am not too sure but can image though that it takes some pretty tricky maneuvering to drive and make coffee at the same time.

You just backed your car out of the driveway and head down the street and think to yourself “It’s high time for a fresh cup of coffee” and so what do you do?
You get out your little coffee maker gadget and turn it on and press a few buttons and place a porcelain mug (no paper cups please) under the thing that squirts out the coffee and there you go a hot cup of good’ol coffee! Oh, I forgot you need to put some coffee in the thing too..Sorry

I am starting to get the jitters from the caffeine in my coffee so I better be careful here or I may get forgetful…

What worries me with this whole set-up is as a gal -> how can I drive, make coffee and put my make-up on all at the same time, and still keep my eye on the road, and maybe send a couple of text messages to my gal friends saying that I’m having a fresh cup of coffee in my car. Or you guys too -> read the newspaper (whatever section interests you) make your coffee and send out a couple of emails from your handheld device, and also keep your eye on the road. Has anyone managed to do that???

I bet there are some seminars out there for this problem and I am going to register for one of them and earn a certificate in making coffee in my car.

Though guys and gals must be careful not to spill any of their coffee on themselves because if they don’t have the built-in dry cleaners in their car than that could means trouble with a capital ”T” !!

You cannot get out of the car with a coffee stain on your cloths because everyone would then know that you have the coffee gadget but not the dry cleaning gadget and that could really put a spot on your day…

I see this as real multi-tasking and by the time I get to work I am ready for the day. Plus to solve my dirty cup problem I’ve installed a mini dish washer in my car, so that I don’t have any dirty mugs lying around in my car when I come out in the evening after work.

I wonder just how many people own such a thing and do you need a special license to use it because it sounds like it may be part of one of those new ways to drive your car and therefore you need a special coffee-making license. But either way you look at it; it maybe a “must have” for 2012.

Enjoy a good cup of coffee wherever you are!

Toilet Paper Today!

Hi, everyone out there in the world who is at home or in their home office wondering is there anything out there that can bring a little smile to my face???
Well, maybe this little repost can, and have a great day wherever you are in the world and the most important thing is to stay healthy!!

Turmoil with Toilet Paper
Posted on March 26, 2012 by sueromeiser (copyright)

This tidbit of information is something that you must know about.(I am busy tomorrow bossing people around, so I thought I would post it now)

I could hardly believe my eyes when I read that there are public buildings with toilet paper shortages. This means that supplies are running out and that one should always have a spare roll of toilet paper with them whenever they leave the house.
For us gals that’s no problem because we have our trusty handbag with us so a roll can be stuffed in it.
But for guys I see a problem because you can’t walk around with a roll of toilet paper in your hand; though maybe it could be a new fashion accessory for 2012?

Toilet paper holder for guys; a must for 2012 and you could also get a special toilet roll holder for your car and it’s standard in all new models. And the most important “must have” toilet paper App, so you know where to buy the brand you want.

Plus, just image color coordinated roll of toilet paper that either matches your shirt or suit that you are wearing and at the same time you are prepared for anything because you have your trusty roll of toilet paper with you. I am going to suggest this to my husband and he can give a presentation about this to his male business colleagues and they then can decide on how to best approach this problem. And once I know the answer I will let you know. Ok?

Just writing this here gives me a feeling that I must go and check to see that I have enough rolls of toilet paper here because leaving the house without my trusty roll could be dangerous if I have to go unexpectedly and I don’t have my roll with me and there is no one else around with a roll either. Maybe I will go out and buy a family pack later on today and then I am ready for all toilet paper problems.

Think about it- no one ever really thinks about the wonders of a roll of toilet paper. That stuff has been around for years in all colors and quality. I love toilet paper and am not ashamed to admit it. And I bet there’s some of you out there too who love toilet paper but just don’t want to admit it.

There’s the sort of recycled toilet paper that would take the skin off your backside if you used it -> it’s environmentally friendly cause it’s a gray color and after you use it you may need a tube of hemorrhoid ointment to protect you from the environmentally friendly toilet paper. So how am I protecting the environment?

Then there’s the bright colored sort -> My gran (great woman) always had purple because it matched her bathroom and turned the water in the toilet bowl the same color. I used to love to go into the bathroom as a kid and just tear off the sheets and throw them into the water and watch it change color in a matter of seconds. Doing that was better than any computer game and provided hours of fun too.

Now I don’t want to think about what it did to my backside let alone the chemicals that were in it. But hey, I’m still alive and enjoying life. Maybe it is because I used that purple toilet paper. Do they still make it in that color???

Then there’s the normal boring white with its different ply’s now this is toilet paper!

Whether or not it can hold up to the purple stuff I’m not too sure. And the white stuff does not make the water a neat color. So that makes it sort of boring. But it’s probably better for your backside.

So just remember next time you want to go out don’t forget your trusty roll of toilet paper that can provide you with the feeling of security that you need when you “must go”.

The morning show… Good morning on Sunday ©sueromeiser

Well as you know we all (well most of us) watch the morning show to give us an insight into our day and to inform ourselves about the events around the world.

As a gal who loves to watch TV and keep herself informed in these trying times, I have started to watch the morning show. There I sit in my living room with my trusty zapper in my hand and I zap through the channels in the hope to find a program that would interest me. I mean really there are the business programs reporting to us the latest stock market activity… Which again this jargon can be really confusing and sending my brain spinning…. OMG!!! What are those people talking about???? I need help just understanding the whole thing. Plus, the events like crimes and such about how the bad people in the world do bad things to other people…. That is really sad, if you ask me… What is the world coming to????

Then comes the tidbits about what is going on in the world of entertainment …. NOW …. That’s for me… seeing all those stars and getting a glimpse into their everyday lives. I mean really what those people are up too and what kind of houses they live in… it is just an OMG moment!!!!

After a few commercials which offer me the opportunity to spend my money on things that I don’t need… I love commercials… There was one for some gardening stuff… Garden here I come, and it is true that gardening season is starting… Folks get out there and get that garden in order, now you have time…. At least I do!!

Thank goodness the commercials are over and I can finally get down to watching some serious television where the presenters talk about all kinds of stuff were they try to make the viewer feel like they are sitting with them on the hosts sofa presenting their show…. I wonder how much money those presenters make???? Maybe I should apply for a job as a morning TV host…… There are bright colored letters is my name and the world can sit in front of their tv’s and watch me present them the morning show…. WOW!!!!!! Stardom here I come….

I am getting bored watching tv because I normally don’t watch soooooo much tv, so maybe I should do something else???? Like go for a walk and get some fresh air or like I read the other day, which I found really interesting, learn something new while you have the time now instead of vegetating at home doing nothing…. Those are really great tips and can be fun too! Thanks to those TV folks for inspiring me!!!

So, to all those morning TV show fans…. Enjoy your morning show and as they say…. Stay tuned for the next episode… Have a great day!

Ahoy….. My life’s an App Mar 5, 2012©

Though in these trying times one must stay focused and have a sense of humor, so I thought it would be fitting to bring a bit a humor into our dull home office days by reposting an old post from a couple of years ago. Enjoy and I hope it brings a smile to your face.

My life’s an app Mar 5, 2012©

Remember the days when you used to use your brain to think and answer questions when someone asked you something, and now-a-days the brain seems to be a stagnating mass within your head.

I can remember when you read something about something and actually remembered it or if you didn’t you could look it up in an encyclopedia and there you found the answer to your question and all this without an app.

I think back and ask myself: “How did I ever manage to get through my day without an app?” And the funny thing is I am still here and my brain still works without an app and I can remember information. I do not want to get addicted to an app. What happens if it is wrong? Then what do I do? Has anyone thought about that or are they trying to invent an app for that?

The other day at work we got talking about the world and stuff like that and one of my colleagues asked me what the longest river in the world was. ( I knew they wanted to see if I could manage without an app.)I answered without hesitating – the Nile and 2nd is the Amazon and 3rd is the Mississippi. Of course no one believed me and they said “well let me check this out because I have an app that will give us the answer.” I thought to myself “ok”.
Well low and behold I was right, and I knew this and the information came directly from my brain cells. Amazing things brain cells. Those babies can really remember things and process information and help you with all sorts of things and this all without an app!

Sorry, got side tracked there with my brain cells. My colleagues then asked me another question and I was right again and then they got a bit sarcastic and said that I must sit home every evening and read up on such stuff. I had to laugh at that and said they maybe should read something and not always be dependent on an app.

Everywhere you turn there are these bloody things.

Apps for weather – as if I can’t look out the window and see if it’s raining or not.

Apps for your wardrobe – it’s a sad day when I can’t figure out what to wear from the clothes that I have hung in my closet.

Apps for a coffee shop – what happened to asking someone where a good coffee shop is? An app can’t know this or do apps drink coffee secretly?

Apps to locate you – I don’t want everyone to know when I am sitting on the throne or is that important information for everyone?

And those are just a few. I could write a list that would be endless and that I don’t want to do.

I was actually thinking about creating a group called “ I want to keep my brain and not let it turn into an app.” Though I don’t think that many people would be interested in my group because everyone is busy with their apps trying to find out about the group and then only to be disappointed by saying that this group doesn’t have an app and that we use our brains and communicate with each other the old-fashioned way by talking to each other (those were the days!).

Try going through your day without an app and I bet you can have some fun.

Stores and more……

I read that there are many people out there who have to work in the public eye and have read that they are not always treated nicely… to word it nicely!!

Why do people have to behave so aggressively or why do people have to be rude to each other??? There is no need to be like this and why??

Has society changed us soooo much that we have changed into an aggressive group of people in uncertain times??

There is one thing for sure one should appreciate those who serve the public and treat them with respect!!

Take care and think about respect for those who work hard for us in these trying times.

Time

Time you all know this word and probably think to your self what the heck is she going to write about here??? Exactly … Time… not the magazine but “time” itself.

There is “on time”, “in time”, “just in time” and so on. Have you ever thought about how many times a day you use the word time? I bet not, well I have because “time” is a good word, which means everything nowadays in society.

Looking back when I heard the sentence “My how time fly’s” I thought what a joke, and who ever thought up that sentence, was old fashioned. Okay, nowadays you would say “how vintage” …. I need to keep-up with the times. Right?

My how times have changed, too. Or Have they really changed that much? Not really in the past few years. But time is a precious thing which should be appreciated in some way or another. Okay enough philosophical nonsense here with good ol-time.

This time I was thinking about something else.

Like procrastinating is a great time killer and you know exactly what I mean here, too. We all do it when we don’t feel like doing something, but maybe some people are better at it than others.

Recently, since spring is here and the yearly calling of “Spring Cleaning” popped-up again…. Who ever thought of that is not my friend (or maybe they would like to pop by and spend some time clean-up my place?… If so, please let me know! Thanks) because this time of year is not for cleaning, okay maybe the windows so I can see what is going on outside, otherwise, things haven’t changed since the last season’s clean-up.

It seems the real change is the new spring wardrobe and this time I am not too sure what has changed??
But I was informed that this season’s sneakers should be “White”, because that is in… My golly that color has been around for a long time. The young sales assistant persisted on telling me how great the color white is for sneakers and that it was never in before.
I mean really, just by looking at me she could see that I was over (let’s say over 25). But it never occurred to her, until I said that “I think this color has been around for years even for sneakers.”
That comment didn’t go over too good with the young girl who apparently wasn’t trained to deal with customer like me. But who cares!

I left the shoe store and bee lined for the next shoe store to get a real overview of the current sneaker season situation… This time I needed facts and wanted to see a store that offered a larger range. There must have been at least 100 pairs of sneakers in white. How many feet do I have… Exactly 2, and when would I have the time to wear them all?

It was/ is only the spring collection and not the summer or any other season!!! Though I will admit a couple of pairs caught my eye, but not enough to buy them… But what was good after I left the shoe store there was an ad from a well- know online store; which had written on its “electronic billboard” (energy saving-Ahoy!) Back to the wording: They advertised: “Sneaker”

Don’t we normally wear sneakers? Or am I missing something here this time or is it so that people only buy one sneaker now and the other foot is without a sneaker??? I would like an answer to this from the online platform, please!

After reading that I had to laugh to myself about how many more times will I see this ad? Don’t answer!
Now a time later it was/is spring sale time for all these great sneakers and other items which I am not too sure who will buy them?? We don’t even have summertime yet.

Boy how seasons are flying by. I need time to think about all this and wait for the next time the season’s fashions change again.

Now it is time to bring this to an end. Enjoy your time with whatever you do!
