Topsy Turvy

Life at the Pro-Shop has been crazy lately.  The A/C for it is fritzed, and we can't afford to fix it, so I think I'ma gonna have to move upstairs and that's going to be some reorganizing like crazy...After 4 years I have it set up pretty perfectly, logically for me, and now I get to re-do.  Change is good, it's good for the soul, keeps a person alive.

The new space I will have to work with, if all goes according to temporary plans, is that I'll have a much bigger area to work in, much more storage space, still plenty of room for my knick knacks and plants and personal stuff.  I've always made my workplace my own.

In the past week I have learned that I am home.  That's a pretty cool feeling.  I was offered a "way out."  Free and clear, my choice, and I chose to stay, and while being alone was something I thought I wanted so badly, when it became available, I couldn't go.  I'm happy about that.

"When elephants fight, it's the grass that suffers."  I don't know who said it, I read it in a Reader's Digest in a doctor's waiting room a long time ago.  When my sweetheart and I aren't in sync, everyone (our friends at the club) are confused, uncomfortable...It's crazy how much another person's attitude can affect every one's attitude, but I've seen it, first hand.  And I've seen it get better when we get better, which we are, which is a relief.

That's how much influence we each and everyone one of us have on every person we come into contact with daily.

I have been working so much, I am on a 13 day stretch.  Monday holidays are not 3 day weekends for me, I work every one of them.  This week I have 2 more days, I'll be off on Monday.  Dr. appt. at 9:00, taking a friend out shopping after that...flower shopping, nails, maybe nails then flower shopping, home.  Hopefully home by 2 or 3.  Who knows?  We may go drink Margaritas all afternoon.  Who knows what is going to happen until it happens?  That would be a hoot.  Maybe just one, but I'd have to drive her home.  Probably won't happen...but thanks for tripping down that daydream lane with me.  *gs*

That's all I have for tonight.  Gotta go get horizontal, count my blessings, and give myself some rest.

Play Nice!  xxoo

Random

Hello, Kidlets!

  • I get to Skype with my girls tomorrow, if I can figure the Skype thing out.  If anyone Skypes and wants to...oh shoot, I don't have a camera on this monitor.  Never mind.  I am excited and nervous to talk to them.  We've sent videos, but we need to TALK.  It's been almost 2 months!  
  • Busy, busy at the pro-shop.  Not so busy creatively.  I've been fighting a tummy bug for about a week now, I think I finally sweated it out last night.  Fitful sleep, dreaming but not quite asleep all the way. 
  • My young son has caught the bug.  He is eating 2 burritos.  After just getting over this bug, and having a "shitty" day yesterday, of course I warned him.  He chose to eat the burritos.  I am not cleaning up after that.  Seriously.
  • I have a new group of golfers that start anywhere from 3:30 - 5:30 in the afternoon on Tuesday.  I didn't get home until 7:45, and went in at 8:30 to wait for a beer delivery.  Life in the pro-shop.  I do love it.  I really do.  


  • My new computer came today, Young Son brought it to me at work so I could start setting it up.  My friends, Janet and Kenny came when they got off work to help me with the late crowd.  The only time she has Internet right now is when she's at the pro-shop, on my computer, so of course I give it up to her when she's there.  
  • I just this evening learned that I can calm the animals in this house by singing to them.  
  • Sometimes I wonder how long a person can live with another person when they have nothing in common.  I probably wonder that too much.
  • I'm thinking about joining a church.  It's been a long time since I felt that, but the church me and the kids go to is so uplifting.  
  • I'm going to bed.  Did I mention I'm talking to my girls tomorrow?  Yeah, I'm sure I did. 
Y'all, Play Nice.  xxoo

Old Friends, New Friends, Blending the two

I have an "old" friend.  She has two nicknames, one is "Dammit," the other is "Rose" (from the Golden Girls).

We've been friends since 1994.  We lost track of each other in 1997, but I found her on Facebook about 3 years ago, and we're still tight friends.

I have a "new" friend here in town.  We've been friends for about 2 years now.  She is a good, good friend.

Recently I took my old friend to meet my new friend.  Now we are all friends.

Today I found out that I get to see two people this weekend that I haven't seen in about 20 years.  I am more than excited about that.  To ice the cake, my old friend will be there to meet them as well.

I hold my true "cyber" friends in such high regard as well.  I have a few that date back to 2004, I have some that are more recent.  They know who they are.  Those friends on the other side of my screen, I am so thankful for.

I have no idea where I was going with this.  I'll call it random, thankful thoughts and be happy with that.

Play Nice!
