Well my younger brother, who is turning 40 this year had a minor scare yesterday. He thought he was having a heart attack. Thankfully it turned out that this little scare was not quite as bad as we all thought it was, but it sure was an eye opener for him. He has decided to start living a healthier lifestyle. The first thing he has decided to do is look for the best slimming pills that he can find. If he looses a few pounds, he’s hoping not to have this particular scare again. He also plans on joining a gym and trying to eat healthier as well. Hopefully he sticks to his plan and we have him around for a very, very long time to come.

I really have to say that I think this is probably the wettest summer that we’ve had in a very long time. We get rain for about four days straight and then might have one day of sunshine. Well, we are back on the rain again this week. Right now it’s raining outside and it’s raining pretty heavy. So there will be no outdoor time for me and the kids today. So I have decided to rearrange the living room. I haven’t started yet because I haven’t really decided what to do with the TV wall mount. Once I have that figured out, I will then rearrange the living room. Since it’s raining out, there’s really not much more I can do.
I seriously hate it when we get some new equipment at work. Last week we started selling gift cards instead of gift certificates and let me tell you it’s been a serious pain getting used to this new barcode scanner. Every time I think I have it figured out, the stupid machine goes and acts up on me. The other night it took me five tries to ring on lady in and I’m not real sure who was getting frustrated more, me or her. Oh well, it doesn’t look like this thing is going to go away anytime soon, so I guess I’ll just have to make nice with this machine and try to get it working for me better.
It’s quite funny. I only work two days a week, but on those days I need to go to work, I really do need to physic myself up to get dressed and go. Normally once I get there, I’m glad to be there and that’s why I haven’t quit yet. It’s just the thoughts of getting ready, dressed and driving to work for a three hour shift. I really know I should complain as a lot of people are out of work and would dearly love to be in my shoes. But as in every Tuesday and Thursday, I will be fine once I get there. It’s just the getting ready to go part that I dread.
I am so clueless. This isn’t even funny. Last night I was looking in one of our catalogues at some office furniture. Well you know what, I actually picked out commercial furniture to purchase instead of home furniture. My husband was the one to clue me in on this little blunder and never shut up about it all night. I really do wish that whenever I make any sort of mistake, he isn’t sitting beside me. But the good news is, I now know the difference between commercial furniture and home furniture. So something good did come out of my blunder.
Yesterday my husband and I decided to take the kids out for a drive and then we all went out for supper. It was actually a pretty nice time for us all to be together. While we were out driving my husband stopped and looked at a couple of motorbikes. For the past couple of months he has been talking about buying a bike and every time he starts talking about it I get nervous. I have told him he can purchase one. But I have also told him that I will be having a Pleasanton motorcycle accident attorney on speed dial. I know if you drive carefully you will be fine, but these things do scare me. Hopefully all he will do is look at bikes this summer and not make any purchases. This way I won’t have to worry about it again until next spring.
What a crappy weekend! Yesterday my husband had to work so we were unable to get any camping in this weekend. And today it has been raining all day so we weren’t really able to do much of anything today either. So I spent most of the weekend on my computer. The good news is, is that I got all my work done that I needed to get done on the computer so I can spend the next couple of days doing something else. Hopefully next weekend will be a better weekend for camping. But then again the way this summer has been going, I really won’t hold my breath on that.
The other day we got news that one of my friend’s husbands died on his way home from work. He had a massive heart attack on his way home from work and died before he ever got home. This was pretty scary stuff for me to hear. He had been taking diet pills that really work but apparently hadn’t started taking them early enough to make any difference. This man was only 58 so this is why this event was pretty scary. I really do feel badly for his wife, and I’m definitely keeping her in my thoughts these days.
Well my best friends son just got out of drug rehab and I have to say that I don’t think I’ve ever seen him look as good as he does today. It’s is an awful shame when kids get into this kind of trouble, but thankfully for him he has very supportive parents. As this is his third time in rehab, I’m not quite sure how this is going to turn out. But everyone who knows him is really hoping for the best. Hopefully this time the rehab took and now his mother will have one less thing to worry about.
Last night at work I received a pretty great compliment from a couple of my customers. The informed me that last night’s service was the friendliest service that they had received at a restaurant in a very long time. Well this made me feel pretty good. Every time I start to get discouraged and think about maybe looking into a health care career instead of working in the service industry, something like this happens that makes me glad I’m a waitress. So I guess I’ll stick with my current profession for a little while longer.
