Random Thoughts 11/11/13

I was going to do the dog post I promised today but I don’t have a after photo to post. I am not about to wake up my sleeping dog to take a picture of Him.

I was so tired and sore after walking the dogs for 4 hours on Saturday and Sunday, I had to take some muscle relaxers last night. I fell asleep watching TV and woke up about midnight, not rested but unable to go to sleep. I have too much to do today to go in and I start in my regular position on Tuesday. A couple of you commented on my post the other day about their dogs pulling on the leash and it was hard to walk them. The Humane Society uses a leash call the Weiss leash, which helps quite a bit. Here is a link that describes how they work. http://www.puplife.com/products/weiss-walkie. When your dog pulls on the leash you just stop until He does then reward Him with a treat. He will soon get the idea not to pull so hard on the leash. This lease is not made for small dogs.

I did my laundry this morning, will try to finish this post,catch up on the blogs I follow then back to bed. I just get used to using the reader now there is a box that pops up that says take me to the original post, another step in what was a quick way to catch up. Is this something I did or is everybody having the same problem ?

The upcoming holidays, I wanted to get this out of the way, because a couple of post have come up already. Before I start I don’t want any pity comments on this, I despise them and that is not the purpose, If you do give me a pity comment I will just delete it.

I used to get a big kick out of the holidays but not anymore, I am an unofficial Grinch. You have to realize that spending these holidays all alone can be very depressing. I resolve this by eating my little waist off. On thanksgiving I go to Ihop and eat all the stuff I normally wouldn’t, put on a pound or two then diet them back off.

Christmas is kind of weird even for me,I enjoy listening to Christmas songs and even sing along with them, out loud when in private or in my head in public. This one depresses me the most bring up way to many good memories. Normally for this one I get a motel room for two or three days, disconnect from everything on the web and once again eat way to much. This time I hit the buffets and dig into pies and ice cream.

The reason I wrote this is the closer they come the more stories you will write about them. I wont ignore your post but my comments will be kind of lame because I don’t want to ruin the holidays for anyone else. During Christmas I will probably just disappear for a few days from this site.

I am also someday going to start another blog that has to do with something that is important to me but I think only a couple of my friends would befit from it. I know this is crazy, I can hardly keep up with this blog.

One last thing I still am loosing followers again. If you have caught up with me and I haven’t caught up with you in 36 hours let me know. You can just email if you prefer at xbox2121@yahoo.com. If you haven’t caught up with me I am probably just ignoring you until you do. I am done jabbering onwards to catch up then hopefully back to bed.

A great day

Yesterday I had a fruitful and wonderful day even if it did have a few hiccups along the way. I had sent my son the address of the IHOP we were going to meet at the night before in Salina a town about midway between us . I left the house about 15 minutes early went to plug in my Garmin and all I got was a blank screen. Now mind you with my memory I cant get around without a navigation device of some kind. I knew I had one on phone so I opened it and tried to use it. Needles to say because it was already on my phone it was a piece of junk and couldn’t find the address I was looking for. So I searched the apps on my phone and found one I could buy for 8 bucks. I have never bought a app for my phone or computer always used the free ones but I thought this was much cheaper than spending 400 bucks for a new Garmin. So I pushed the button purchase. Since I had never bought a app before I didn’t have a account sent up I had to set one up and there went the extra 15 minutes I had to spare. Now this is a cool app it does everything my Garmin did plus after you set up the trip you can save it so you aren’t using data along the trip. Off I went like a bat out of hell when I was almost there my son sent me a text that said he was there. I don’t like to text and drive but I entered 10 min and before I could push the send button I had drifted into the left lane just enough that a car honked at me and that woke my dumb ass up! When i got there I didn’t see His car so I went inside and didn’t see him. So I sent him another text and told him to walk outside like I did and no Cory. To make a long story short he was at the IHOP on the other side of town, Both of them were on the same street but had slightly different addresses. I told Him to drive around town to meet me since my trip took much longer than His. After He missed a couple of turns He arrived about 30 minutes later. We Had a great time catching up with each other and actually learned quite a bit about each other we never knew. Plus He filled in my lack of memory on some things that happened after the divorce and some that I dint know had happened. We sent about 3 hours there then left agreeing to meet here at least 3 or 4 times year. I drank a ton of coffee before I left and a whole thing while I was there so I had to stop three times on the way home to get rid of it. I had to stop a 4thtime and but some more coffee because I was getting to sleepy to drive. I forgot to mention earlier that before this trip started I had only slept about 3 hours the night before. I was about 15 minutes away from home looking forward to my nap in the recline with the heating pad on when my sister called and said she was in tow and wanted to come by to see me place so much for the nap. She stayed about 30 minutes and liked the place we didn’t have much to catch up on because I had lived out there buy her for so long. When I take naps I always use the alarm on my phone to make sure my nap doesn’t turn into a 3 hour sleep. After my nap I watched a netflix DVD and went to bed without reading I was so tired. I slept my three hours like normal got up to pee then slept two more hours. Today I just rested totally blew off my Sunday house keeping day and don’t even care. I did do my laundry but that was it. If it get done great if not so what there is no body here net me. Now its movie time then try to read until l I get sleepy. Don’t think I will make it to the reading part tonight.
