Part of the secret of success in life is to eat what you want and let the food fight it out inside.
Mark Twain

Good morning. It is thundering outside and there is no heat advisory in effect. The weather man says maybe 1/4 inch of rain with overcast skies a good part of the day. I'll take it. When they showed the radar I saw there was a counter clockwise swirl to the clouds. Hurricane is from the 1st of June till the 1st of November, but 80% of hurricanes, at least in this area, are in August and September.

In the larger city with its varied interests, one event rapidly chases the other. Life-boats are stranded on the shores of time, pitiful wrecks of humanity are dashed amid the rocks and reefs of existence. Old faces disappear and new ones take their places and the stream of life ever hurries on to empty where death’s waters meet.
Frances Ellen Watkins Harper

Good morning. I've been told we won't brake 100 today, but still no rain in sight. The wether man is real optimistic, he says our best bet is a hurricane. Not something I'm wishing for.

Good morning. Another hot one, I'm off today. Last night was interesting. We had 2 closers.This is so strange we both checked our schedule. We had Customer Service clean by 10 and started on the night shifts sorting. A manager said she didn't know why they did it because they didn't have anyone mid shift to give the CS brakes and lunch.

James Martineau

good morning, another hot one. Today the temp will be over 100. My feet hurt, I ca't say anything else hurts, but everything just feels worn out. Between that and the heat I doubt if Mutt will get a walk. I think it is floor exercises. I'm off the next 2 days so some night time walks are in or near future. I love to walk in the dark and am really looking forward to it.

Good morning, Another hot dry day. I need to wash Mutt. Mutt doesn't like water but likes the walk to dry off. We will have it stay calm, the wasp will gather round to land on anything wet. They only want water. Stay calm and they will just go for the water, but sometimes they get in the way.

- Rabbi Harold Kushner

Good morning. I left Customer Service a mess last night and am sure to hear about it this morning. Yesterday was one of those day, it started when my car didn't start. I'm very allergic to clorox and 2 people dropped a jug of clorox that busted and I had to stop every thing to clean it up, made the lines long. Then when I got the lines down someone dropped a 24 pack of beer and the cans exploded. I still had hopes for the day. I keep CS open till 11, but hope my last customer will be about 10 so I can clean, last night it was steady and my last customer was 10:59. Then I has 4 carts of claims to go to the back, I can only take 2 at a time and each cart takes 5 min to sort. 11:05 me a manager told me to hurry my husband was waiting outside. I clocked out at 11:20 and told DH now you know why I give myself a window when I'll be home.

Then come, my love, to the shady wood;
It is good to worship apart
From the crowded world, and in solemn mood
Commune with an humbled heart.
The spirit is purer and better far,
For its moments of silent prayer;
Its light grows clearer, like some dim star
When seen through the midnight air.

Good Morning, I took Mutt and went for a walk early. It was so nice we kept walking. The problem with that is then you have to go home. I was sweeting so bad my eyes stung. Mutt just collapsed on the linoleum at the front door. Some doggie ice cream perked him up and he felt up to emptying his water bowl. When a dog is really hot he won't drink and you need to cool him off. He went back to the linoleum.

I tried the cardio kick and punch on the cardio blast yesterday and no, the first exercise is jumping jacks with your legs and punching with you hands. The next exercise is jump rope so it is out and the last one is extreme cardio, and the extreme cardio video is high impact, so it looks like I can do 2 exercise videos. I need low impact.

Good morning, Another hot day I took Mutt out while i hung laundry, he didn't do anything. I clicked his leash to the fence in the shade and when we came in he emptied his water bowl. I can't let Mutt off leash, he likes to run in the horse pasture. Some of the horses just look up and go back to what grazing, but there is always at least one that spooks. No he doesn't chase the horses, he just runs in the pasture weather the horses are out or not.

Yesterday I did the 80's cardio on Cardio Blast. There were a few times I had to modify for my ankle and I never did figure out the pony, but on the whole it was a good work out. Yes my DVD came with a request to tell everyone what I thought.

Reflection of Christ

One of the most effective ways to show people how faith brings true freedom is through the witness-value of devoting one's life to the lonely, marginalized or rejected, precisely because the face of Christ is reflected in these people.

The State Fair is in September, (I think) how about a fried bacon cinnamon roll..... emoticon

I have a Kindle and have close to 2000 books, but I do have a few nook books. DH got me the 9 inch nook because I had mentioned I thought it would be easier to read on a 9 inch. Yes you can get the kindle app on the nook, just don't try to put a nook app on a Fire. I just thought is strange you had problems getting your nook books on a nook tablet.

I hope you love your new nook. I hope you will fid several free or low cost offerings.

I only have a Kindle, but do spend idle time reading. I am still on "Anne of Green Gables" with is not only Anne's story, but it continues in Avonleah and follows her kidlets, too. Very enjoyable reading. Lots of descriptions. I don't normally get into descriptions, but find these enthralling. It most likely was a free or nearly free selection, but encompasses several novels. I have added Jane Eyre to my Kindle, too. Likewise it is everything she wrote so will take a long time to get through her writings, too.

I am an avid reader and a retired English teacher, so these novels appeal to me.

Good morning, I'm a little late getting on because DH got me a Nook HD and I've spent all morning trying to get me Nook books. I could get my Kindle books just fine, but not my nook books. I ended up calling Nook to find out how to read Nook Books on a Nook tablet. Talk about feeling stupid. Turns out I was doing it right, I just couldn't tell because they put 2 pages of recommends before my books so I didn't know my books where there.

Yesterday I tried out the SP Cardio Blast DVD I won on a wheel spin. I did the walking exercise first since it was first on the DVD. It is 5 min of walking warm up, 10 min cardio walking and 5 min walking cool down. A good 20 min indoor walk.

The TV news said last night that the residents were not going to be exempt from the parking fees and mentioned that are a very, very few "free" spaces for folks. I suppose those stay filled up.

Another hot one. Take care.

I didn't realize you used the boardwalk for your workout at night. That's not good in this day and age. We have to be so darn careful anymore with all the weirdos out there. Do be safe, and stay extra alert since you have to leave the boardwalk to return to your car.

I am really sorry that the residents who voted were not heeded. Sad state of affairs. Perhaps the city can see fit to issue special permits to the residents, or a sticker for the inside of your window like our license renewal. Something needs to be done for the regular voting citizens.

I'm in your corner.

Good morning, I go in early today, noon. Yesterday I got the exercise I won on a wheel spin, so I'll look at that this morning. It is Coach Nicole so I'm sure there something I can do, she normally,

Yesterday My headache got so bad I almost called in. I took a nap and felt well enough to go in, then got worse as the night went on, It didn't help that I didn't get my first brake and my lunch was late. but then the closer came in at 6:30. He is a bundle of energy and turns everything into a joke. Hard to believe he is older then I am and retired army. Sometimes he can drive me nuts, but last night it must have been just what I needed because I started feeling better right away. He also was a there so I could take my brake and lunch and food helped.

I wouldn't feel so bad if the residents' votes were reversed. We don't feel tourists or citizens should have to pay. I'm not paying to park AT ALL. I parked further away yesterday to avoid it, but its somewhat dangerous when I may walk further and it gets dark by the time I make it back. Just thought I'd vent about it.

Votes don't seem to mean crap these days...

Since I choose to EAT right and DRINK right, I suppose you could say I LIVE right!

So will you pay the yearly rate instead of the hourly rate? I guess it is either that or find a parking slot a couple of blocks away from the actual seawall. Since you are working out on the seawall it just adds steps and minutes to your overall workout.

I can see your frustration to now be forced to pay for something that has been available for so long as a lovely free choice. So sorry it has impacted you in such a seemingly unfair way.

We live 80 miles North of the seawall so only visit about one or twice a year. It is lovely, but we are not beach folks anymore. We park to walk, or eat in one of the really nice restaurants for a special occasion.

MaryAlice411, it's a surprise when the local residents voted against it, yet went through based on a loophole.
I also hate it since it impacts my workout. I walk and jog along the Seawall. Besides, drivers must pay electronically...duh! Everyone can't pay with their phones if they don't own one. It's crazy!!!!

Morning, I spoke to Mom yesterday and she wasn't doing much of anything because she couldn't stay out of the bathroom. DD called this morning and said she called the Dr about her 1 year old, he kept filling his dippers. I am so stopped up I have a headache.


They have been talking about paying to park on the seawall for years, so it isn't to much of a surprise.

Many people seem to want racial and cultural diversity up to a point. I believe that true inclusivity removes that point.

Good Morning. Another hot one. yesterday I decided to wait till today to do laundry since I was going into work early. I got up this morning and realized I don't have any stockings. Laundry is in the washer when it is done I'll hang it out.

Feet aren't as bad, still not.

Good morning No walk for Mutt and me this morning. It is raining. The weather person says we are so far in to the drought that it would have to rain everyday for a week or two to brake the drought, so I won't complain about a little rain.

Becky, a retires co worker said my feet would stop hurting 2 months after I quit. They hurt most of the time it just is how much and can I ignore the pain. I have to be careful with pain meds, they are pretty much for before bed so I can get some sleep.

Sometimes magical things happen when we open ourselves to gratitude. Things we could not know would be so wonderful. And the more we do that, the more we change how we move through the world.

Good morning another hot one. we might not hit the tripled digits predated. Now the weather man says 99. Between the heat and my feet killing me, I don't expect to get much done. Some how the heat drains me even inside.

Pleased to hear your waiting is over. We deal with Walgreens and HEB for medications, too. I can sympathize with your run-arounds.

MaryAlice
So pleased to hear you made her listen. Hope things continue to go well for your healthy work environment.

Close my shutters and give me quiet and heaven is very near, wherever I may be situated. My mind to me a kingdom is.
Abigail Alcott

Good morning. Monday I wrote the zone manager a note and asked another manager to put it in her office. Yesterday I asked her if she had a chance to look into my schedule. She said she never got the note. I wrote her another. I bugged her whenever I saw her all day, which wasn't very often, somedays she is around all shift and others I hardly see her. As she left to clock out I asked again. She said "oh that is why I have this piece of paper in my pocket." Well she changed my schedule. I'm working 2P to 9P.

Hi all,

Back from the hospital all went well. Yesterday was a very long day. I think the worst part was getting the meds from the pharmacy. I went to Walgreens and after waiting 2 hours said they did not have the pain meds. Thanks they could have called??? Went to HEB and they said my insurance was terminated. I had call the insurance company ect. DH slept on the couch because I wanted keep my daughter close. Got up a few times for juice and more pain meds.

Today to visit the Dr. only 1.5 hrs waiting. He said everything looks good. She is doing much better today. Thanks for all your thoughts and prayers

Good morning we are heading for triple digits. Mutt and I went for a 40 min walk, Mutt is eating Paws, doggie ice cream, and I have frozen yogurt.

Next week I have another turn around. i went to HR and told them I wanted to change my availability. They reminded me this would cut my hours, Wal-Mart doesn't like it if you aren't anytime. I told I knew and that is why I waited so long, but I was too old for turn arounds, they could give them to younger folks. HR told me my zone manager's job was to make sure NO ONE had turn arounds. I asked why I had them once a month, my next one is next week. She told me to ask my zone manager. Her response, I keep forgetting to check Customer Service, I've just been checking cashiers. I've told many managers my displeasure with turn arounds, above and below the zone manager for 2 years and this is first anyone has told me there is someone that checks to make sure they don't happen. I'm not a happy camper. so much for customer service, turn arounds don't make good employees.
