Friday, no good deed goes unpunished, another chart!


 Okay I am now back on track with charts.  About two a month, but then leaving on a vacation in a week and then the cruise will put a dent in the savings.  Oh well a vacation is needed here my friends.

Hubs and D#2 are at a funeral this morning and I am home with Oliver, who is his cranky self.  Right now he is eating a cracker and is not crying, Lord be praised.

I had three wedding dresses picked up yesterday and still have 5 more to do.  I thought it was 4 but I found another on lurking.  I can do this.

Yesterday, was an all day sew and I still have not gotten my prescriptions which I need to go get, and I have to pick up a script at the clinic, and then I have to get blood work done.  I don't have time for all this run around crap.

Now before I tell you this Kim story you all must promise not to berate me in the comments as I am a sensitive soul.  Not a smart soul, but a sensitive soul. Promise?

I tried to do those curtains the 100 year old client had cut, but they were very bad and I had to guess.  I finally got them to her last night about 7:00 and had another long visit.  Two of the curtains were too tight to go over her rods at one end due to her cutting skills. How do I know this?  Well... because I tried them which means I went to her garage pulled out a ladder and took down the old curtains. Yes I did that and yes they did not fit and yes, they needed to be ironed , not that she could see that.  So (sew) I had to come back home with them and fix those two ends, and yes I will press them and return them for another 1 hour visit and then yes I agreed to hang all four panels, as she was going to do it herself, and I could not be responsible for a 100 year old woman on a ladder. I brought curtains home and Hubs reply, was, "No good deed goes unpunished."  Smart A$$.  Because I have all the time in the world to do this right?  NO comments please, sensitive remember?

SO today this is the list:

1. get blood work done

2. pick up script

3. pick up prescriptions

4. go check on elderly widow and take her a large diet coke, as I have not visited in three weeks, just too busy and as I am in her neighborhood for blood work, well....

5. get blouses for militarily done first thing. 

6.maybe some laundry as I started it.

7. fix and press curtains and deliver and hang.... no comment.

8.send a smart alack comment to Slug to keep heron her toes. 

9.get started on wedding dress I ripped and call for a fitting.

10. start another wedding dress and hopefully finish

11. start another wedding dress and hopefully finish

Yes that is it, let's go!!!!!

I need a new life.


Have a great and productive day staying positive (sane) while you are in the negative.


Kim

  3. I wonder why Oliver is so cranky, past a year old? Is he maybe perpetually cutting teeth? I hope he grows out of it as that can be tiring for you all, but I feel bad if something is causing his crankiness. Just take comfort in knowing you are a giver and a lovely human being! I totally know how you woudl feel thinking aobut her trying to hang the curtains herself. No one needs that guilt!

  4. Helping her hang curtains is a very good deed. My 94-yr-old neighbor was not allowed by me to get on ladders. Will we be old and still trying to climb ladders? Maybe someone will pull us down.

  9. I am actually going to applaud you for helping the lady. I think there are times when others needs have to come first and I think being that caring to a centurion is praise worthy. I know it might have been at an inopportune time but bless you! (Notice I did NOT say Bless your heart__there is a huge difference)

  11. I think the lady is very lucky to know you and you should appreciate the fact that she trusts you to help her with this project. You are a very kind and giving person and I don't know anyone that works as hard as you do every day. Whether you had time or not, you made time for someone who dearly needed it. Your heart should be full. Ranee (MN)

  13. I was diagnosed as HEPATITIS B carrier in 2013 with fibrosis of the
    liver already present. I started on antiviral medications which
    reduced the viral load initially. After a couple of years the virus
    became resistant. I started on HEPATITIS B Herbal treatment from
    ULTIMATE LIFE CLINIC (www.ultimatelifeclinic.com) in March, 2020. Their
    treatment totally reversed the virus. I did another blood test after
    the 6 months long treatment and tested negative to the virus. Amazing
    treatment! This treatment is a breakthrough for all HBV carriers.
