Easter Again

Just waiting around the corner for us „ Easter“ , yes those couple of days off and time to eat more chocolate and enjoy what is in store for us. You probably know that I never really did the Detox diet and now there is the problem with Easter…… The time itself isn’t a problem but all that chocolate out there trying to get my attention when I walk into a store and it is screaming out at me “buy me”….

There seems to be chocolate Easter bunnies lurking in every corner of every store and they seem to follow my around the store too…. Hopefully I won’t have a chocolate bunny nightmare!!! OMG….. The thought of “CHOCOLATE EASTER BUNNIES INVADE LOCAL STORE” … Now that’s a headline!!
But my worries are that there may not be an after Easter diet like there is for other times of the year. This I see as a major problem. Not that I am on a diet or dieting, it is just the fact that I want to look at all those glossy magazine covers and see what the latest dieting fads are, and all I see now is recipes for Easter brunch , cook a great meal for a crowd( okay with a crowd…… Sorry folks my place isn’t big enough for everyone, maybe next time).
What am I going to cook and is it going to look like what I see in those magazines….

Nothing could be worse than…. Just imagine: nothing looks like the pictures; then what…. Okay, thank goodness I saved the magazines. All I have to do is cut out the pictures of the dishes and then place them next to the dish that I cooked, so that if anyone isn’t sure what it should look like all they have to do is look at the picture I cut out and placed next to the food…. Problem solved and everyone is happy or at least I hope so?????
Oh and not to forget the right table deco stuff too… There I need to invest about $500, 00 to have my table look like in the magazine and everything looks so perfect too. If my table looked like that I wouldn’t let anyone touch anything, and say to everyone “You can look at the deco and take pictures & selfies too if you like, but please don’t touch anything”. I know it doesn’t sound very nice but with all the effort and money I would invest, I don’t want my Easter event to be spoiled by one of my friends getting the idea that they can sit at the table and enjoy what they are seeing. NO it will be a simple eat in the kitchen affair and the dining room will be corded off to visitors…. You know sort of like in a museum.
Thank goodness that idea is taken care of, because I have sooooo much to prepare for Easter and so, I am sorry to say I have to stop writing here and leaf through all the magazines to decide what to do and what to eat on Easter and this alone requires a lot of time, even though I know the Easter stuff has been in all the stores since after Christmas….

I am a last minute Easter person, but don’t tell my friends! Thanks and don’t forget to plan your Easter too!

Lets spend money

Spending money is something that we all love to do and the amount we spend naturally depends on how much we have to spend.

On Saturday a friend of mine gave me a section out of a newspaper showing me how I can get rid of my cash faster then I earn it.

Do I want to buy what they suggest? Maybe-> maybe not

But most things they showed costs a bit more than my change purse holds, so I can be content to look at the pictures and think about whether or not I would buy the stuff. Though I will admit 99.9% of the stuff I wouldn’t buy even if I could afford to buy it and the people in the ads look boring too.

I think I will list them so you can get a better overview and decide for yourself if you want to buy something like that.

1.A car made out of aluminum -> great if you are too lazy to wash it and you never need to worry about rust. Drawback is that only 2 people can sit in it, so no driving around with friends.

2. Handbags -> yes, I have that disease but I draw the limit when they cost more than what I earn in a year.

3.Cell phone with diamonds -> what happens when the phone wears out? Do I get my money back and can keep the diamonds?

4.A pen with diamonds in it -> wow, I need this and where do I use it? only at home because I am afraid someone may steal it from me.

Now there’s the fashion “must haves” and they are definitely things that I would not wear to work, or to meet-up with friends or for a night on the town.

But how would they look on me? I am not really too tall, I’ve got big feet and not as thin as a tooth pick. Plus if I showed up with any one of those outfits on everyone would think that I flipped.

Just imagine -> me out of shape in one of those super mini dresses plateau sandals, a bright colored handbag and lots of make-up.

I would scare my guy away and then all my money wouldn’t be well spent like the magazine suggests.
But maybe if I was driving the car he would overlook how I look and say “ok, I’ll go out with you because you have a cool car.”

Though that wouldn’t help either cause he is only after my car and not seeing my real beauty, and this would get me into a mood of saying: forget all that stuff and enjoy life as it is because reality is better than all that superficial crap.

I think I’ll stick to how things are and not steer towards all that stuff in the magazine because somehow I don’t think any of it would make me a happier or better person. The only thing it would do is make me more broke and then no money for coffee with my friends so that we can sit there and dream about all that stuff that none of us would ever buy.

Enjoy your dreams but don’t let them ruin your bank account.

The Best seat

Now we all know where the best seat in the house is? Well, now they’ve even invented one so that your backside won’t get cold. Now that’s what I call enjoying yourself on the throne!

What other place in the house could offer you a pre-heated seat and the quietness that you deserve while attending to your personal business. Now the heated toilet seat could be a life saver for folks living in colder climates, because there’s nothing worse than having to go and to sit down on an ice cold seat. That just spoils the fun… and you don’t want to hang out and read the paper either when it’s cold.

The perils of the bathroom throne!

But like always I think there are many advantages to such a nifty seat and all the accessories that you can get to make your time on the throne more enjoyable.

Now that you have installed the heated seat with the controls – don’t want it to turn into a hot seat and burn your backside do we??? After adjusting the controls to achieve the right temperature for your comfort and deciding what extras to install in your bathroom…

Very important here is -> is this heated throne seat to be in the main bathroom or the guest bathroom, because if it’s in the guest bathroom they may forget themselves there because it’s sooo warm and start reading a magazine or something and then you are lost. Bad idea

So, save yourself the aggravation then and install it in your private bathroom and there you can install such cool things as a coffee machine for longer visits. Don’t want to read the paper without a cup of coffee and naturally there’s the table set-up too so you can place a cup and paper on the table and text a couple of messages telling your friends how great it is to have a heated toilet seat making you the envy of everyone.

And if that’s not enough you could make it so that you can control the toaster from the throne so when you’re finished your toast is warm and waiting for you in the kitchen. So, starting your day off with no more stress because you were too long in the bathroom.

Plus this great system comes as a portable model too. You wouldn’t want to be out and about and think “Oh, I have to go” well, just get out your battery heated seat and presto no more cold backsides .By the way, this fits in all handbags and briefcases.

The wonders of the world of toilet seats!

If this still hasn’t convinced you about the heated throne then think about it next time you are freezing your backside off on a cold throne and then you will wish you had a heated model too. I want a heated throne!!

That Magazine

While out shopping a couple of weeks ago I noticed amongst the magazines one for “How to get a bikini figure in 10 days”

Well, you can just think what I did -> bought the magazine!!

I knew right away that if I do what the magazine says to do; exercising, and eating a special diet and so forth then I will look like a goddess in my bikini and every guy will be looking at me, and I will be the envy of all the gals on the beach.

So, I started doing the work outs every morning like it was suggested. Mentally I felt better but physically I couldn’t/ can’t see much difference or maybe I am tooooo old for those exercises and they only work on under 25’s, and if you are older than that -> well you can just hang it up!

To top that I went out and spent a fortune on the recommended food that I should eat and thought to myself “this would be good for my husband too.”

WRONG…..

He said that he didn’t want to spend 10 days starving to death just because some magazine promises me a new look. And to top it off he wanted to bet $100.00 with me that I wouldn’t hold out for 10 days.
I knew at that moment that he would be in for a challenge and I could see myself in my new bikini that I’ll buy when I win the bet. I feel better already!

I suffered for 10 days eating my so called great food, but found it tasted like nothing and those pounds did not really melt off my body like they promised. And my husband had to add his two cents by saying “Honey, where’s your bikini figure because I can’t see much of a difference.”

I could have given him a black eye, but thought the better of it.

I mean really couldn’t he see the difference??? My scales said that I lost 2 pounds – OK, I’m only 8 pounds off. And when I looked in the mirror I could clearly see my bikini figure now.

Though I will admit it depends on what sort of bikini you are wearing.

Now that I have finished my “ how to get a bikini figure in 10 days”; I think I will celebrate and enjoy life again.

Don’t believe everything written in all those magazines because I can say it doesn’t always work.

So, whether you have a bikini figure or not, who cares enjoy the beach anyways!
