All Over The Place

Do you ever have one of those posts where you just don’t know where to start? This…is one of those posts, so bear with me as I will more than likely jump all over the place. 🙂

I had a nice surprise today when I learned that I had more vacation time than I thought to use up. So I have off next Wednesday and only work 1/2 day on Thursday ( I have a drs. appt scheduled). I love an out of the blue free day!! I have no excuse to not get caught up now.

I had to use my Kohls cash on Monday since that was the day it expired. I spent $50.00 online on some great deals, on Thanksgiving….in my pajamas… free shipping to my home….and then they sent me $15.00 in Kohls cash. I used it on this…WP_20131209_001

It’s not as big as the one I have now…..with no handle on the lid and a new chip in the ceramic, (yes I needed a new one) but I ended up getting this for $10.26. Deals like this make me smile. 🙂

Did everybody put in their chance for the mega millions jackpot? I only do when people are talking about it and then I remember. I played my $1.00 this morning…..if I am going to win it’s only on $1.00…right? I guess I’m not a gambler but I will take my shot at 400 million. Maybe then I can move my dream house….in case you forgot..5325322550_8d41d54703_z

The baking soda/vinegar….shampoo/conditioner is going well. I am doing two days on and then one day of shampoo ( I am using the buttered rum Philosophy that SB bought me…it smells so yummy and I had to hide it from the girl). I have very fine hair and it seems to have more body than usual, so it must be working…right?

I have been scouring the internet for deals and gift ideas and have found a disturbing thing or two. Here is an example…WP_20131209_004

Does anybody else find this disturbing?!

Where you bothered by the Obama/Mandela thing? I always listen to the news when I am getting ready in the morning and since it was snowing….I needed to know how the roads were……they were crap by the way, and I had to find out all on my own. In the beginning it was nice and then Obama started talking and then he was using Mandela’s clan name……that really bothered me. Who is he to use that name? Isn’t that reserved for people of that clan? Maybe I am wrong, but I was embarrassed for our country. Then…..he took a selfie…really? This is who is representing us? Obama will be remembered for two things 1. the Obama care mistake that almost (and may still) doomed our country, and 2. his wife that tried to kill Cookie Monster and blamed childhood obesity on a muppet and McDonalds. I am not a political person, so this is just my opinion. I am not a fan!

I waited a day to see if that irritation would go away and didn’t, so I posted about it. Today I had another irritating experience…..

My ex husband is the district supervisor for all of our local Dunkin Donuts and since someone sent me a gift card….over the phone (not loving that) I went at lunch today. It must really be hard to find good help today!  One girl exhibited good customer service and I told him her name, but the rest should probably find jobs that don’t involve customer service. I know…it’s a different world…very few have a good work ethic…and even fewer care. What happened to our world?

Very jaded and irritated……Zia
