Zapping through the channels

Zapping through TV channels can be a great past time when you have nothing to do or there isn’t anything to watch on TV…. I would say most of the time there isn’t anything to watch or????

Well, there is bad news abound about your remote control and …… Where did you put it??? Any ideas or has that device decided to hide itself somewhere in your house??? It is said that we spend two whole weeks of our lives searching for that object so we can zap through the channels of our TV’S.

If I had only known that years ago I could have saved myself some time and done something else… What… look for my keys!!

Keys are like TV remote controls, and reading glasses can be put in this category too! It always seems to me that where ever you put your keys they are never there when you are looking for them and I will never understand it??? I know I left my keys in my handbag but now they aren’t there and seemed to have hidden themselves somewhere else in the house… but where???? Or there are the reading glasses. I know I left then on the nightstand by the bed and now where the heck have they taken off too???

And then the remote has gone missing too. It was on the coffee table this morning when I left the house and now it’s not there. I need to send out a search party in my house to find all that stuff because I think those objects get together when no one’s home and think about ways” how can we annoy her and she will have to search all over the house to find us.”

I bet you have those problems too at your place but may not want to admit it. And what is really interesting about all this is that this problem isn’t a new one. My parents had the same problem without the remote control, because I was the remote control… I bet if I got a dollar for each time my dad misplaced his reading glasses or keys when I was a kid; I would have been a millionaire by the time I was 20, but as luck would have it, my dad never gave me a dollar for each time he misplaced something- too bad…

Plus maybe you have heard this too at your place (it’s common at ours) “ What did you do with the remote control?”

I answer: I haven’t seen it.

My guy: I know you had it because you have been home all afternoon.

Please, tell me what does that have to do with the remote control when I never ever stepped foot into the living room but somehow I am guilty. This logic seems to always amaze me. What do I know I only live here!!

So, I think I better get more organized because I don’t … I repeat don’t want to waste too much of my time looking for the remote control when I can be looking for my glasses or keys, Enjoy your search at your place too!!

My Mood and My Glasses

There supposedly are glasses that when you wear them they will affect your mood so you won’t eat so much.

I guess they work the same way as the mood rings from the 60’s or 70’s (can’t remember) but I did own one and may still have it amongst the junk in my attic. Those were great rings cause they changed color with your mood and so everyone knew how you felt. Whether or not it was true; who cared, because it was cool to see the ring change colors!

Well, the way I understand it is with the glasses (though I am not exactly sure) is when you put the glasses on you won’t eat too much. Though I doubt this very much and think it’s just another sales gimmick and think that they actually have another purpose like warning those around you about your mood.

Now I see this as a really great thing because everyone is wearing a pair of these and so you are warned in advance if the other person is for example in a bad mood.

This could be a real nerve saver at home because you know right-a-way what sort of mood your guy or gal is in and this way you can save yourself a lot of agony and nerves. Or you know right a-way when they’re in a good mood too, thus taking the guess work out of things.

The main thing is when you see “red” – watch out!! That means bad mood and if you are not careful that could lead to an argument. That’s a stay away color.

But if you like to take risks, then when you see “red” it is a good opportunity for an argument and so now you have a reason to have one. This really takes the guess work out of arguing and you can plan which topics you want to argue about too.

“Green” means I’m in a good mood and will take you shopping. Great for gals who want a new pair of shoes or a handbag because he will be paying. I love life!!!

But with “Green” it is good if you want to get your guy to do something around the house too because you know from the color that he will repair the leaky faucet or mow the grass.
Saving your nerves and getting the job done that should be done. Again it is advisable to have a list on hand so when you see that his glasses are “green”, then you know what to ask, thus avoiding confusion. I have my list!

“Yellow” means you should be a bit careful because the person is on the borderline of being happy or getting upset. Here you are treading on thin ice so diplomacy is recommended here.

But with “yellow” there is always a slight tinge of the other color so you know which direction the person is heading and then you can either have your arguing list or your “green” list handy and can mentally adjust to the situation.

Plus if you prefer, then write your list on your cell phone with the note app, so then you don’t need to worry about losing the pieces of paper and forgetting those important topics.

I will give you a little peek at my lists and please don’t tell my guy about it cause I don’t what him to know my strategy for arguing or what I want from him.

Red list:

Put the toilet seat down – this drives me nuts!

Uses a new glass all the time – does he really need a new glass for each glass of water and I am not his maid!

Leaves the newspaper all over the place – maybe I would like to read it and not have to hunt down each section or does he think I need more exercise?

Green list:

Paint the kitchen – will only take 2 hours to do and I have already bought the paint.

Trim the hedge – one hour and you get fresh air too.

Take me out – any place he wants, because I am happy he is taking me out!

I know many of you may have some other ideas for each list and may even be better than mine. I just don’t want to press my luck and I would update my lists monthly too.

So, folks if you want to make your life a bit easier then maybe you should consider a pair of these glasses,and since my guys birthday is coming up I think I will buy him a pair and then it will only be smooth sailing in the future because I know his mood.

Can my Man?

While zapping through the channels on my TV; I again came across another fascinating show about men. These seem to be endless now-a-days.

I will admit that I am proud of my husband and that he can do many things and of course I brag to all my gal friends about his talents and they brag about their men too. But none of us would ever get the idea of going on TV to show the world what our man can do or maybe cannot do. Are we strange?

My man can do lots of great things like fix a leaky faucet or paint a room, though half way through the painting he seems to lose interest and I have to finish the job.

He can boil water or turn the washing machine on after I ask him a million times or he doesn’t have any more clean underwear. He can lose his keys -> this he can do really good and probably could get an award for it too!

I bet you gals know exactly what I am talking about here.

Or another good one is: What did you do with my glasses? They were right here where I left them on the coffee table but somehow they have disappeared and took it upon themselves to hide under a magazine or newspaper. Though the idea has run through my brain more than once that I should actually hide them and then he really can do something -> find them!!

But don’t tell my man that I told you all these great things about him because he is somewhat of a person who likes to keep his good traits to himself and not share them with the world.

On TV those guys seemed a bit henpecked if you asked me and they really weren’t thinking for themselves either. The gal was bombarding her man with instructions as to how to flip an egg in the frying pan and the man wasn’t really doing what he was told to do either.

I would have given my man a spatula and said: Flip the dam egg over and forget all the other nonsense, so we can win!

But then again those folks on TV are probably amateur actors getting paid to make fools of themselves.

Guys would you go on TV and make a fool of yourself just to prove that you can fry an egg or turn the washing machine on? I doubt it very much and I am sure you have the same opinion as my husband does about such programs. I will not write here what my husband said, but I am sure you can imagine….

Though with all the things my man can do there are something’s he can’t or won’t do and those things really aggravate me to no end, and they are not worth mentioning because I would be writing for the rest of the week and then I would have no time for other things in my life.

So gals if your “man can” be proud of him and tell him so and maybe he will surprise you with something new that he can do too!
