Time Flies

Really late with today's entry. How did it get to be March 26? How is it possible that the first 2 Passover Seders are Monday and Tuesday and I have done so little? Thankfully on Monday night we will be at my cousins and I just have to bring Amy's Smoked Paprika Roasted Chicken.The second Seder will be at my house and the guest list is growing daily - started at 7 and now up to 16! So, I will be getting up VERY early tomorrow morning to do a massive foodshop and then will have a cooking marathon over the weekend. Thank you to Aunt Jackie ,especially for the Chicken Soup & Matzoh Balls, for all of the help! No way could I have done the Soup (nor would it have been as good as hers) at this late date. Sorry Jeff, there will be no Gefilte Fish since you are the only one who eats it :)!

Not sure that I will be able to keep up the daily blogging through Tuesday, but I will try (or play catch-up next week). Really, where did the time go?

Humor Again

I really got a chuckle over this one. Hate to admit it, but I can really relate to #4. My automatic lock on the drivers side of my last car periodically malfunctioned. For about a week, I would enter from the passenger side and crawl over the console - until I realized that I could manually unlock the Driver's side door. DUH!

How do these people survive?

Recently, when I went to McDonald's I saw on the menu that you could have an order of 6, 9 or 12 Chicken McNuggets.

I asked for a half dozen nuggets.

'We don't have half dozen nuggets,' said the teenager at the counter.

'You don't?' I replied.

'We only have six, nine, or twelve,' was the reply.

'So I can't order a half dozen nuggets, but I can order six?'

'That's right.' So I shook my head and ordered six McNuggets (Unbelievable but sadly true...)

I was checking out at the local Walmart with just a few items and the lady behind me put her things on the belt close to mine. I picked up one of those 'dividers' that they keep by the cash register and placed it between our things so they wouldn't get mixed.

After the girl had scanned all of my items, she picked up the 'divider', looking it all over for the bar code so she could scan it.

Not finding the bar code, she said to me, 'Do you know how much this is?'

I said to her 'I've changed my mind; I don't think I'll buy that today.'

She said 'OK,' and I paid her for the things and left.

She had no clue to what had just happened.

A woman at work was seen putting a credit card into her floppy drive and pulling it out very quickly.

When I inquired as to what she was doing, she said she was shopping on the Internet and they kept asking for a credit card number, so she was using the ATM 'thingy.'

I recently saw a distraught young lady weeping beside her car. 'Do you need some help?' I asked.

She replied, 'I knew I! should have replaced the battery to this remote door unlocker. Now I can't get into my car. Do you think they (pointing to a distant convenience store) would have a battery to fit this?'

'Hmmm, I don't know. Do you have an alarm, too?' I asked.

'No, just this remote thingy,' she answered, handing it and the car keys to me. As I took the key and manually unlocked the door, I replied, 'Why don't you drive over there and check about the batteries. It's a long walk....'

Several years ago, we had an Intern who was none too swift. One day she was typing and turned to a secretary and said, 'I'm almost out of typing paper.
What do I do?' 'Just use paper from the photocopier', the secretary told her.
With that, the intern took her last remaining blank piece of paper, put it on the photocopier and proceeded to make five blank' copies. (Brunette, by the way!! )

A mother calls 911 very worried asking the dispatcher if she needs to take her kid to the emergency room, the kid had eaten ants. The dispatcher tells her to give the
kid some Benadryl and he should be fine, the mother says, 'I just gave him some ant killer......'
Dispatcher: 'Rush him in to emergency!'

Life is tough. It's even tougher if you're stupid!!!!

Cheer Me Up

Truthfully, I have little energy to Blog tonight. My heart goes out to my dear friend,whose child is struggling with an addiction problem. After a recent relapse she is in a Rehab again. Why do good, smart kids do stupid things? I have worked for years with Addiction related problems, but it is an entirely different ballgame when it hits close to home. How to answer the question "what would you do"? It surprises me how quick people are to give advice and pass judgement. The truth is, I don't know what I would do. I can't even imagine! She is doing all of the right things for herself and I will always be there to support her. And, I will stop complaining about where Adam will choose to go to Grad School and how much money Jordan spends!

So, what did I do to cheer me up? Looked at more cat pictures from work. Patrick & Shannon are another brother and sister pair who live on the third floor. Though they have a comfy lounge with beds and toys:

Princess Shannon prefers to be in the middle of the activity at the Nurses Station


King Patrick prefers lounging on the BenchIMG_1229.JPG

Thank you Patrick & Shannon for always bringing a smile to my face!

Weight Watchers.......Again!

Well,yesterday was the start of Weight Watchers at Work and I was one of the first to sign up for the program. Mind you, I am a veteran at this. I am embarassed to admit that this will be the third Lifetime Membership I am pursuing - one at 27, one at 40 and now (yikes) at 56. I am not thinking of this as a diet, but rather as a change in my eating habits.No sense beating myself up over why I need to do this again or obsessing about the 34 pounds that I need to lose. I did some healthy foodshopping over the weekend and I think that I will just focus on getting through tomorrow and the next day and the day after that. After a few weeks, it becomes second nature.I almost put this off until after Passover, but thought "when is there not some holiday,special occassion or celebration" to worry about? The key is to learn how to manage these things - right? Portion control will be a challenge, and I am not sure that I can drink 10 glasses of water a day.Ibt, I am going to give it my best shot!
