Multiple tests and several doctors have determined that my mom's cancer is too far along and too widespread to be treated for other than pain management. The doctors were honest with our family and my dad and sisters decided not to submit my mom to difficult and grueling treatment that might only prolong her life for a few months. They would rather she be comfortable and I agree.
Mom will be sent home from the hospital with/for hospice care for pain management. Hubby and I are leaving tomorrow to go be with her.
Please continue to pray for our family in this difficult time.
As a Purex Insider I was invited to preview the new Dial Rewards program. Rewards?! You bet your booty I signed up. Both of the above are referral links and I can get more points if you use one of them. Or, you can just enter the web address yourself. My feelings won't be hurt...well, because I won't know. LOL! You can do different activities to earn points. "Choose an activity to start earning points. Once you’ve completed an activity, we’ll deposit* points into your account. Remember, the more points you have, the more you can spend on chances to win" I earned 50 points just for signing in and 500 points for entering my unique code. You can use my code to get 500 points too! A few activities like watching short videos and answering surveys and I am up to 5050 points! And I have only been playing around for a little while. Use this unique code: J4219 in the section to enter a code for 500 points. Since I am a Purex Insider, the number of people using my unique code will be tracked and I could win prizes! WooHoo! I love prizes! And play games once you earn points. "Each game of chance requires a certain amount of points to play. You can play the games until you reach your daily game play limit or run out of points. Remember, if you're short on points, you can earn more by completing activities." I will probably use all my points to try to win Amazon gift cards as those are my favorite! So, go sign up...have some fun...earn some points! And let me know if you win any prizes!
like, lately, that more and more things really bug me and make me feel like
lots of people are just idiots and I don’t know how they manage to take care of
themselves or anything else. (Oh, and I
am really in a good mood today, so this feeling is not just because I am
I ride the
bus into work every day. It is a nice pleasant ride and I spend the 20 minutes
or so reading. It starts for a very relaxing day…except when another rider
feels that I MUST be party to their phone conversations. Usually, I just shake
my head. If they are really annoying, I plug in earbuds to block them out. The
other morning a “girl” behind me…early to mid-twenties…was talking on her
phone. I was not eavesdropping as she clearly did not mind everyone hearing her
conversation. But she did make the best comment ever:
“I was worn
out yesterday from texting all day.”
all I could do not to burst out in hysterical laughter. All I
could think was what would this woman do if she had to do any real work. It
made me sad for whatever company has hired her or hires her in the future.
Then I got to
work and looked around and it is astounding how many people are surfing the internet
and/or playing on their personal phones when I walk down the hall to my desk.
Admittedly, it is 8 am, BUT many of these people “start” work at 7:30. So how
is it fair to the company that they are not actually working?
It is not
really my concern, BUT a few months ago, I was “spoken to” about being on the internet.
Ummmmmm…I was at lunch…made clear by the fact that it was lunchtime and I had
food in front of me. Other members of my team regularly eat at their desks and
surf the net, but because “someone” said something and my boss is so concerned
with appearances, I had to be spoken to. So, now, I leave my desk and go eat
lunch somewhere else. And I am unavailable to my boss for that hour every day.
Of course, I
can look at most other team members at any time during the day and they are on
the internet. Sure, they could be researching, but I don’t think any of our
jobs have anything to research on Facebook, Yahoo’s entertainment page or on
Youtube. Of course, that is just my opinion.
I think maybe
my boss says something to me as he knows it will bother me that he might think
I was not working when I was supposed to be. Other members don’t care. LOL!
Also, his loss.
I was worried
that maybe I am just jealous that others get away with what I don’t, but I am
worried about the state of my company. If all of these people are surfing, who
is doing the work? We find out when we hear of some crisis where something did
not get done correctly and everyone needs to drop what they are doing and help
get the issue corrected. I just shake my head that any business is run this
I also get
irritated by people who cannot walk across the street without looking at their
phones. Come on people you need to look at the traffic lights…not your phone.
If it is so urgent, stop walking. I can’t even count how many people I have
told to “stop” because they were so intent on their phones that they didn’t see
the train coming. The freaking TRAIN! How can you cross train tracks and not
make sure there is no train coming first? But we hear almost weekly about
someone getting hit by the train in downtown Houston. I am sure those people
thought they had no fault in it. But I can assure you, the train is not
invisible and it is not silent.
Oh, yeah, and
Hubby and I went to the movie on Sunday. We sat in our preferred spot away from
all others in the theater…there were only two other couples there when we sat
down. And the very NEXT family of five that walked in sat RIGHT BEHIND US. We
are so freaking magnetic!
I guess I
could go on all day about things that people do that are so idiotic that it
annoys me to no end. Or, I could just try not to think about them. Maybe I will
try that for a while. Just be oblivious like everyone else. LOL!
Oh, and I
took a break to write and post this. LOL! Why not, everyone else does.
We went to
see Jurassic World in 3D and it was GREAT! LOVED it! Hubby and I got there
really early, since the last time we tried to go to a movie the lines were so
long at the box office that we left and went to another theater. Anyway, we
went into the theater and were the only people there, so picked our seats and
got comfy. We like to sit on the first row of the risers as Bobby likes to prop
his feet up on the railing.
back and after a bit, another guy walked in and sat down ONE SEAT OVER FROM ME.
I am glad I had my purse and umbrella in the seat next to me as he might have
sat there. LOL! THEN, since the trailers hadn’t started, he gets on the phone
and starts talking. OMG! Clearly he had no reason to worry about disturbing US.
Ugh! At least he put his phone away when the movie started.
movie started, I put my purse down by my feet. No need to sit and worry about
it for the whole movie.
couple of people that came in sat RIGHT BEHIND US. It was just hilarious! We
say it is because of our animal magnetism. And during the movie someone got on
their phone and started talking. At least that person got up and left the
theater, of course talking the whole way. I always wonder why people even go to
the movies if they cannot turn their phone off for an hour and a half. I don’t
think they are all brain surgeons.
while I am on the subject of inappropriate cellphone use, when are people going
to realize that while you are driving is not a good time to be checking your
phone for messages. If you are waiting for a message that important, pull the
hell over and get away from me.
I am married to the man of my dreams and we are happy empty nesters. I have always loved looking for deals and have found that since our kids moved out, we have a LOT more money thanks to my deal hunting. So I keep doing it.
I love reading other blogs and finding new, and old, ideas on saving money and making life better.
The best part of "blog world" is all the fabulous, funny, witty, people I have found!
