Time to journal post again. ๐Ÿ™‚ Took a break for a few months.

June 8

Question? What makes you miserable?

2012

When my family does not appreciate what I do for them. It may be little things but a nice thanks would be appreciated and not a sarcastic one either. ๐Ÿ˜‰

2013

No entry. Guess I was not miserable. ๐Ÿ™‚

2014

I do not like when people put others down. Makes me wonder why they think they can do that. Makes me miserable thinking about the why.

Question? What makes a good friend?

2012

Someone who listens and cares. The friend that is there for you. A friend that wants to spend time with you.

2013

No entry. I think I went into hibernation from friends.

2014

A good listener! I have too many that only tell me their problems and do not care to listen to mine. I begin to tell mine and they interrupt with telling me theirs. I of course stop talking about mine and listen.

Question? How many cups of coffee did you drink today?

2012

None! I am not a coffee drinker. I do love Pepsi! I had one. I drank water at the show. ๐Ÿ™‚ Go me.

2013

No entry. Must mean no caffeine so I had no energy to write in here. ๐Ÿ™‚

2014

Dislike coffee! Zero! Don’t like the smell of it either. Now, I do love Pepsi. I have had one today! Trying to limit my intake because of the sugar. I don’t think I will ever completely rule out a Pepsi but at least cut back. ๐Ÿ™‚

June 11

Question? What is your favorite thing to do on a Friday night?

2012

Go on a date with my hubby. It does not happen too much anymore. I believe it has been replaced with the whole family going to a movie or out to eat. ๐Ÿ™‚

2013

No entry. I must have been on a date! ๐Ÿ™‚

2014

Movie and a pizza with the family! Usually we rent the movie and bring the pizza home. Once in awhile we go to the movies. We love to do that but it really adds up in cost because we love to get popcorn and a drink. ๐Ÿ™‚ Did you know they sell beer at movies now? Crazy! I like a good beer now and then but I think that is going a bit far.

June 12

Question? Is something in your way? Can you move it?

2012

That thing called procrastination! Yes I can move it. I may not everyday but if I set goals I can usually succeed.

2013

No entry. Procrastination did not get moved today.

2014

Motivation, lack of! It goes in spurts with me. Right now it flew out the window. Yes I can move it, just need to set those goals.

June 13

Question? Something that made you worry today…..

2012

I worry about my boys growing up to be caring and energetic men. I think electronics rule their lives too much. Makes them lazy and not get involved in what is going on around them.

2013

No entry. No worrries?

2014

I worry that my kids and hubby will not be happy. Depression seems to be widespread in this world anymore. I hope it will not happen to any of them. Scary what depression can do someone.

Question? Did you exercise today?

2012

I sure did! I walked on the treadmill for 20mins. and sweated like crazy. I am trying to do regular exercise. I do enjoy it. It’s just that motivation thing showing up again.

2013

No entry. I’m hoping I was too tired from exercising to write one. ๐Ÿ™‚

2014

Nope. I thought about it. My app told me to. I should have. Motivation did not show up.

 

June Brings New Shows!

TV shows summer time

I’ve got my sticky notes taped up for the new shows during the summer!

I remember growing up they did not do this. Once the season was over in May the shows were random during the summer time. Or could it be I was outside more so I do not remember. Anyway, it sure does confuse me when the June shows begin. I have to remember the new lineup. This brain doesn’t remember well without the sticky notes.

Chalk one up for the creator of those sticky notes!

I do like that there are new shows but at the same time it usually means a long wait until next summer for the ones that make it back in the lineup. That part bites!

I love the fact that the TV listing is online so if I forget, sometimes they have a rerun of the show later. Not all of them but some.

Who can not love being able to watch them online if you miss. ๐Ÿ™‚

We are so spoiled these days.

We also have OnDemand with our cable company to catch shows we miss. Though they don’t always put all of the shows on, that part is a bummer. But the nice thing about this one is Iย can watch on the TV as opposed to the computer. ๐Ÿ™‚

I hate that cable companies are way more expensive than satellite companies. We have had both and still choose the cable over the satellite. ๐Ÿ™‚ I think we like it because everyone can watch what they want in any roomย because we have a TV in about every room. Just wish they would give you ALL the channels for the one advance package deal.

It sucksย that you have to add packages of channels to get certain channels. Never fails you end up with lots of extras that you don’t watchย so you can have that one channel. Oh, well. And that is probably why they get away with it, is people like me will add it anyway. ๐Ÿ™‚

It is nice to have the internet with the same company. Makes one less bill to keep track of for me. ๐Ÿ™‚ Last month I saw on the bill that we should upgrade our modem to receive the fast speed internet that we pay for. Hubby took the old in and we got the new one. There is always a catch. We had to buy this one, but that means no monthly fee on the bill now. The speed is nice. Especially, with all the devices we have going on it. I have three boys who are into gaming so you can imagine the use of the internet.

We have yet to do any of the DVR’ing. We go with the basic cable box, no HD either. No reason to pay for all those extras. Channels yes. ๐Ÿ™‚

With all these options to catch my favorite shows, I can still enjoy outside whenever I want and catch up later! ๐Ÿ™‚

Ah, technology. ๐Ÿ™‚

 

 

 

 

Meet the New Roomie!

10314625_10152176971287483_7321706374950133809_nย Here is Buddy! ๐Ÿ™‚

My hubby found this cute little guy on a truck stop parking lot. He was afraid he would get ran over so he became our pet. Heย was hubby’s buddy for a week or so until he came home.

The kids love him and so do the cats!

IMG_20140525_185436ย Lazy is very curious about him. ๐Ÿ™‚

It is fun to watch him move around his home. One part is pebble and the other half is shallow water. My youngest picked out the SpongeBob house.

My family loves SpongeBob. ๐Ÿ™‚

I am thinking we need to find a rock or big twig so he can climb on it. He was stuck on his house for a day. We would put him down and he would be right back up there. ๐Ÿ™‚

The cats love watching him and will sit on the ledge by the tank. It makes for fun entertainment.

Hubby is thinking he is a Wood Turtle. We plan on keeping him as long as he is happy. Eventually, he will need a bigger home which will hopefully be in our backyard with a small pond.

Pets are so fun.

Buddy is definitely an easy one to take care of and low noise! ๐Ÿ™‚
