Can we keep it? – We don’t need a dog. (Really we don’t according to the cats.) I found this oversized stuffed black lab at our local Macy’s. He followed me home. I am a soft touch.
Holidays are almost over – As much as I look forward to the festive feel that comes with them, I am relieved when they are over. I want my world back to normal. I was at the grocery store on Friday and there was hardly any parking. They have a huge lot. These people should be at work so I can enjoy my leisurely weekday activities without annoying festive people preparing for parties to which I’m not invited.
Speaking of parking lots – At this same store I lost my car. I have a red RAV4. I hadn’t realized how many there are. I stopped at every red car in the parking lot before I found my own. You know those wonderful key fobs with the unlock button? For other cars you can hear the beeps in the next state. Not so with my car. It’s so muted I had trouble hearing it from 10 feet.
Unshrouding the furniture – During my cat Hazel’s illness this past week, I shrouded the furniture that she might sit on with towels . No body fluids on the furniture please! It was bad enough that the carpets were fair game! The house is back to normal now. So is Hazel. I may take a few more poop-free days.
Pay it forward – Customers did that again this year at my local Starbucks. I always feel badly for the person in front of me who picks up my $5 mocha latte. I, in turn, pay for someone’s $3 coffee. I think those things work best when you are surprising someone rather than as a chain. However, I will not break the chain unless the person in back of me is catering their office staff. (You know breaking a chain involves bad luck…..)
Hope your New Year is great and tell me, how was your week?
