Window Jewelry

I have been renovating my living room for two weeks. I know it seems like a long time, but the look of the finished room will be worth the two weeks of dusty construction. I have decided on the furnishing for the living room. Everything is ready for delivery. I could not decide what was I was going to do for the windows. After all, window treatments are like the jewelry to any great outfit. I went thru catalogs, stores and the internet. I finally decided on shutters Manchester. They will give my living room a polished look with the wider blinds are a more sophisticated look that the old stand by mini blinds. They have a similar look to plantation shutters that were used on old southern homes. I was right the effect that they have on the room is stunning.

The Never Ending Day

I am definitely one of those people who tries to put too much on their plate. I am always telling myself to slow down and say no to the thing that are not important. However, I never manage to do that. It seems like I am always on the go 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Yesterday was a day that seemed like it would never come to an end. I had to go to work, pick up my clothes from the laundry mat and take my daughters to soccer practice. After that, I had to go by the store and purchase a water filtration media. I did not even get a chance to sit down when I got home. I had to make dinner for the husband and kids. My day started at 6:00 A.M. and did not end until 11:00 P.M.

My Dream

I have decided to set up my own Staffordshire Bull Terrier rescue. I am in no doubt that it will take an awful lot of hard work, dedication and commitment but I am adamant that it will be worth all of my efforts.

I have been a Staffordshire Bull Terrier lover for as long as I can remember and although I love all breeds of dog, the Staffie, as it is commonly known, is by far my favourite. They are very courageous, loyal and loving dogs that despite once being bred for fighting can live in harmony with other dogs given the right upbringing and socialising.

My dream to set up a breed specific rescue has always been there but now that the numbers of abandoned and neglected Staffordshire Bull Terriers is way out of control and help is needed now more than ever before I feel that it is the right time to do something to help with the problem.

A Pet Peeve

I can’t think of anything more annoying than people who move things in a shared office. The scissors keep vanishing and today it was the NCR books – a whole stack of them! Everything has a place so that everyone who may need it can find it. I don’t understand why people don’t put things back after they use them. Just put things back where they go, that’s all I want.

I can’t even fathom a reason why someone would take four stupid transfer pads. Sure, maybe one of them. Why would someone need all four? They wouldn’t.

I’m starting to think one of my co-workers is doing this just to bother me. Ever since I said something about the scissors, my stapler has vanished and then reappeared, my pens, shared highlighters, you name it. I don’t want to seem paranoid or go “Office Space” on anyone, but come on!

My Father’s Problem

I love my father although, he can be very stubborn. He doesn’t like, to be told, he is having auditory problems. My children have to yell, to talk, to him. He thinks, only old people have these type of problems. My father doesn’t like that he is getting old. He is sixty-three. He has a lot of trouble understanding people, when they talk. They don’t just have to raise their voices. People have to screams for him understand them.

My father is a photographer. One of his clients, told him, he should get an auditory test done. Something, my whole family, has been trying to get him to do for years, now. Of course, he listened to the stranger’s advise. He did finally get an auditory test done. He loves his hearing aids.

Try Something New For Your Anniversary

My husband and I are very into being active. We are always trying new things, whether it is sky diving, mountain climbing, bungee jumping, or white water rafting. It is how we met, and it is how we stay young. For our seventh wedding anniversary, we wanted to try something that we had not tried before.

He saw an advertisement for a series of circus workshops being offered by a local gymnasium, and signed us up to take an 8 week course. It was fantastic! We had the chance to try several different things, including walking on the tight rope (I was terrible at this), and learning some basic moves on the trapeze. My husband and I really had a chance to connect, we gained some new skills, and we have a good story to tell over dinner.
