Lost Items…

It is sometimes hard working at a retail store, because there are so many things one can buy. I enjoyed looking at them, putting liked items together, and rearranging them so they would be pleasing to the eye.

Whenever I go into a store I look past what I am looking for and see other items I think I want. If a store is arranged in a nice way, I may just pick up an extra or two. I am not alone in this thinking.

I love cups and I keep telling myself not to buy them, so I will not get tempted to buy another one. I really don’t need any more cups. My coffee table is already full, with my cups, and books. Who doesn’t like to drink a good cup of coffee or tea while studying.

I stopped going past the coffee mugs at my job until I decided I didn’t have a cup with all of Snoopy’s friends on it. S0, it was no longer a want, but a need. I was going to get a new cup and my smile was there as I walked to the back of the store, but that smile faded. I may have put the cup all the way in the back and at the very top. Someone found my cute Snoopy cup was gone.

Oh well, I knew I should have gotten it, because if you look at something more than once, then you should just go ahead and get it. Did I learned from this? Than answer is “No,” because it wasn’t even a full week when I saw something even better. This time the cost was $50.00 and I was trying to save some money. I really want to go home (New York) this summer and every dollar saved now will get me there. 

I couldn’t help, but look at the bag everyday (it was in my area) as I continued to work, but it was hard. I happened to be talking to a friend about it and he asked:

Friend : I missed taking you out for your birthday. Do you want to go out to eat or get that bag?

Me        : I love to eat and get food, but a bag can last forever. 

I was so surprised he gave me the money. I really thought he was joking and I would have given him a hug if we weren’t on the city bus. I wasn’t going to go back to work to get it. I called and had them put it on hold. Too bad it was the wrong one. At least I have a picture of the cutest bag I lost…

It’s okay. I am holding onto the gift that was given to me and the next time I see a bag. It will be coming home with me.

It is hard to bypass items you see and want, because you are trying to save for a bigger item.

Back 2 Me…..

I can not believe Christmas is within two weeks

 and I have either lost the gifts I have already made 

or I ran out of yarn. 

I wish I had time

(which I don’t, because it’s an hour and a half to & from Michael’s)

to go and get more yarn.

***********************************************************************************

I cannot believe I have been trying to type out my thoughts, (as you can tell from the start of my post, but I got sidetracked) because I had so much I wanted to talk about.  From rude remarks from customers on how our store is running low on items to the lines are always so long.

I just smiled and apologized before walking away. This one group of people caught me at the wrong moment. I was bothered by so many people without masks and had to stop working in my area to move out of their way, when I got a smart remark  about my store.

Customer  :  This store normally has a lot to choose from, you’re not going out of business are you?

Me :  Nope we are good, but today is December 24,  the last day before Christmas, and we sold all the good stuff. There’s alwas Target or even a Wal – Mart. Can I help you with anything else?

It was a good thing I had on a mask, because they would have seen my smile as they walked away. I am like, you had 11 months and 24 days to  get a gift for anyone and everyone you cared to shop for.

 I was happy when I saw the lights and the signs of Christmas around my town. I didn’t get the chance to walk around and take as many pictures as I liked. I am grateful I got some and in my book, some is better than none.

I still have so much I want to type out, but today is Christmas day and it’s a day to spend with my family. I got up eating cake and now I am about to go and get another piece of cake. Then you know homemade cake is best without frosting? At least that’s how we like it.

The best thing about today being the 25th is, Christmas is over, and my hours are going back to normal. YES!!!!! I even worked out my extra time in the morning. I can’t wait for next week to start, so I can get back to me..

A Happy Ending….

I went to sleep working on a new crochet project and awoke early to continue to work on the same project. I got tired of trying to find a new anime, so I went back to one I knew I already liked. I am once again watching ‘Yi-Gi-Oh”. I normally just watch it as I get ready for work, since we no longer have cable, and I’m watching Roku now.

Now don’t get me wrong I actually enjoy watching my favorite Hulu shows on my TV screen, but I am not going to lie. I AM SAD, because I can no longer watch the ladies from ‘The Real.’ I realized I wasn’t watching live TV other than their show wow..

Thanksgiving is a time to spend with family and friends. Close friends anyway. I started cooking a little late this year, but since I am only making two quiche I think we will be okay.

I just finished eating a big breakfast (after eating light all week, my son asked if I was cooking breakfast, and all I could do was say, “yes.”) I started thinking about a positive outlook and “Carole and Tuesday” came to mine.

Today is Sunday 11/28/20011 and I finally finished editing my book as well as putting an end to this post. I got sidetracked, but what’s new…. I cannot believe I have been up for five hours and haven’t stopped to eat or even think about enjoying a cup of coffee. I am going to really enjoy that now……

Keeping Positive..

I haven’t been able to stop working on my new “V” stitch project, nor have I been able to stop thinking about Tia Mowry quick fix cook book. Which I plan on doing a book review on, (its that GOOD) but my eyes are ready to close.

I can’t believe I was talking on the phone for over an hour. As I rethink about what was said and what I heard my mind is still unclear. I let a few friends read my book, with no respond, but when I found an editor she said, “Your book isn’t good, but I will still publish it for you.” That would have cost me $3,000.00, and she was willing to do it in payments. NOT!

Then as I was enjoying my conversation when “Thomas” called me once again. Its been seven months and I am wondering why he is still reaching out? Then again a few times I cought myself, before I could do the same. I did this before, I stopped talking to him, and reached out, but once again hurtful words came from his mouth. It doesn’t matter if we were friends for over 20 years.

I have decided I only want to keep positive people in my small group of friends and that is the reason why I Can Not answer his calls anymore. Well as I am once again watching The Ouran Host Club and going to enjoy the rest of my Friday night. Time for a cup of hot lemon water…..

A New Stitch

I couldn’t go to sleep until I started a new project. It may not be the right color, but I am enjoying working on my grey”V” stitch all in one scarf.

This came from a different project. If I remember I will write about it later, but its time to say, “Good~Night.”
