Oink Oink

Saturday I made the mistake of going into a house with 3 little girls all recovering from the flu! Talk about your toxic environments.
Stupid you say! I wasn't the least bit frightened I pride myself in having a strong "constitution"
Rarely do I get sick, in fact I cant remember the last time I had to miss work due to an illness. Monday afternoon I could feel something coming on.
Now today is Thursday I still don't feel any better. So I felt the need to google symptoms of swine flu! just in case
Symptoms of H1N1 swine flu are like regular flu symptoms and include
fever: Check
cough: Check
sore throat: Check
runny nose: Check
body aches: Check
headache: Check
chills, and fatigue: Check and Check
Yep its official I have the Flu....glad to of figured that one out now I can go back to bed.

I'm No NAG

Have you ever been shopping and saw something you liked but didn't buy it...then you get home and wish you had? That's the case with this T-Shirt I saw at a garage sale...I do love me a garage sale! Now I usually don't wear T-Shirts except to sleep in (sorry about that John) Because I tend to agree with Jeff Foxworthy when he says "you can learn everything you want to know about a redneck by looking in his T-Shirt drawer"
What brand of cigarettes he smokes
  • What his favorite NFL team is
  • Where he went on vacation the past 6 yrs
  • What kind of beer he drinks
  • But this T-Shirt I saw was really cute!
    It was Black with white lettering that said
    I'M not a Nag
    I'm a Motivational Speaker
    I guess its all in how you look at things!

    Faking It!

    I attended a "Purse Party" the other day.
    For those of you who don't know what these are, its very similar to a Tupperware party except the host has a house full of great knock off designer bags.
    Prada....Gucci...Coach...D&B and they are all priced at $50.00 take your pick.
    Well I got a great brown Coach bag. And I cant tell the difference if its real or fake.
    Nor can my friends at work or my clients. The secretary's at work were oooing and ahhhing over it saying what a great bag it was and can they have it when I'm done with it.
    Now everyone knows that women are better at faking things than men.
    We will shamelessly fake nails, boobs, tans, fur, leather, designer fashion, suede, hair and diamonds.
    We can even fake sincerity, enthusiasm, modesty, helplessness, surprise...
    Hell we even have a fake word for fake, its faux
    But where I'm confused is should I say " oh its not real" or fess up to the truth.
    But doesn't that defeat the purpose of buying a faux bag anyway?
    This weeks picture this word....FAKE

    Picture This

    Male 25 Strange: Unusual, extraordinary, or curious; odd, queer
    I believe I even stumped the stumper with that word. I tried to find something worthy of Strange to take a pic of but was never able to capture it.
    Yes, I did find it Strange that we threw a going away party for a receptionist at work and she never showed up..
    Yes it was Strange to see a red fox (not the actor) in my back yard
    Yes it was Strange that I spent 2 hrs at the mall hunting for new boots and left there with out spending one dime (strange in deed)
    Yes it is Strange I haven't posted a blog in 10 days.......
    Trouble is I was not able to capture these events on my camera hmmmm

    Mom Powers

    Kate plus 8

    Say what you will about Kate!

    • Her hair is ridiculous
    • She treats Jon like a 2 year old
    • She's self-absorbed
    • Neat freak (who thinks boys are dirty)
    • Shes an "ice queen"

    Shes still the one at home with the kids while Jon runs around with a number of "Twinkies" and empties their joint bank account. Plus shes doing a hell of a job marketing herself, writing books, doing charity work hitting the talk show scene on her own.

    With all she has been thru I can't say I wouldn't have permanent PMS too!

    "But who knew she was funny!

    OOPS I did it again

    Sorry but.....I was messing around with the Feed/email on "Footnotes" and something bad went wrong, hope to have it corrected now. (be sure to check out the latest ramblings)

    Welcome Walmart

    Yipeee...... its finally going to happen in New Lenox. I went past the construction trailer for the new WAL-Mart! Yes I know... I saw the documentary about Walmart and how little they pay their workers (I'm pretty sure they told them what the starting pay was when they hired in) average pay is $10.11 cents an hour.
    But you do have to admit they have the best deal going for grocery shopping! I started driving to Lockport about a year ago. I had an appointment in Lockport and decided to run in and pick up a few things. That's when I realized how bad Jewel had been sticking it to me. (Hmmmm after several attempts to google Jewel starting pay I still cant find that out.) Yes I had been warned many times by friends and co-workers that Jewel was raping me, but I figured how bad can it really be? Well I found out.
    So now I drive to Wal-Mart to do grocery shopping, yes it is inconvenient but well worth it......
    Get rapped once and its a travesty.......keep going back to the scene of the crime and its stupidity.

    Picture This


    Male 48 Female 51
    Priceless: having a value beyond any price, having worth in terms other then market value.
    At the beginning of the week I had watched an infomercial for " Sleep number beds" and they said a good nights sleep is priceless.... ahaa my priceless pic.
    Then I was invited to my boss's Sons homecoming party at the VFW. He had just returned home from 4 years in the Army, and 2 tours in Iraq. Being a mother of 2 boys myself I found the whole ceremony to be very emotional. From the beginning when he arrived escorted by 52 motorcycles all displaying an American flag, firetrucks and police from Frankfort, Tinley and Mokena. To the prayer given by the Chaplin thanking God for Andy's safe return.
    Then I really had my "AHAA" moment when I was able to capture a picture of a
    Mother and her Son!
    "Thank you Andy for putting your self in harms way for me"
    Next weeks word is STRANGE

    Public Service Announcment

    Buyer BEWARE
    Being a Realtor for the past 23 yrs I feel it necessary to enlighten you on some of our "dirty little tricks" we play on unsuspecting home buyers.
    For those of you looking for a new home (WHY AREN'T YOU LOOKING WITH ME) who need clarification on what the jargon of the industry means, here is a list of descriptions to watch out for. I think with just a little bit of knowledge, the world will continue to be a very dangerous place.......
    Baroque= Broken
    Casual living=Your neighbors have a refrigerator on their front lawn
    Charming = Corners don't line up. Sagging porch
    Country Living = Your street will never see a snow plow.
    Cozy = Cramped
    Diverse Wildlife = Raccoons will raid your garbage. Bats will roost in your attic. Coyotes will eat your dog. Bears will eat your children.
    Urban Setting = Ghetto
    Historic = Has ghosts
    Interesting History = Has murderous ghosts
    Laid-back Lifestyle = Retirement community
    Quaint = Outdated
    Quiet Neighbors = Cult compound
    Scenic view = Adjacent cemetery
    Starter home = Cardboard box
    Unique layout = Architect was unlicensed and possibly schizophrenic
    Waterfront property = Septic tank backs up in spring.
    Consider your self warned!
