Social norms… ponderment

So on my way to work the other day, on the radio they were discussing how much time should you wait until you ‘like’ a comment or someone’s photos on Facebook and even said something to the effect of there is a time limit even.

Ok, wait a minute!? There is a time to do this and even a limit!?!?? So really I like these things on my time not others, if it happens while Im looking and I like it I’m going to ‘like’ it. If I don’t happen to see it at first and later, I’m going to ‘like’ it then. And if I happen to come across someone new and check out the photos that were posted in the past, I will ‘like’ them then.

Since when is there policing of when something posted for attention has a time or time limit on when to ‘like’ it? Yea I’m gonna ‘like’ things at my convenience not anyone else’s!

What do you think? Do you think there are these ‘understood’ time frames?

Stuff… in and out

I later heard about the awesome job, 😞 sadly I didn’t get it. I so wanted that one since I would actually be using my degree. Oh well I sort of use my degree in everything if you look at it right…. talking and listening and then responding correctly is an art and when you know more about psychology it helps talking to people and keeping the peace and harmony while keeping everyone happy. So to keep me up in spirit I decided to make a positive and think that way about it.

I started my great job last week, it so far seems great. Everyone seems to be nice, snarky and sarcastic…. like me! 😝

So while I waited for my start date, I kept struggling with getting the crap my daughter spread to my hubby and me. We had to put off going to Houston for a week, to see family since we were so bad. Last week we did go, I still wasn’t 100%, but we had a great time.

A lady in my in-laws neighborhood does and annual thing to raise money for her church in Mexico, she makes wonderful 🥘 food! We had gorditas, handmade and so yummy 🤤.

One of my hubby’s friends picked us up to go to a Jeep event. Jeep owners that were nearby came together to spell out Jeep with their Jeeps! There were so many that came to the event they made two lines underneath the word! Someone took pictures and video with a drone, looked really cool.

Isn’t that cool?!?

My hubby has a Challenger, so we love car events and shows, he competes when we do go to them.

We came home and I started my new job on Wednesday (was supposed to in Tuesday but my boss had to push it another day), and I was still feeling blah and coughing.

It was a nice week at work, people are nice, snarky and sarcastic… my kinds of peoples! Lol. I apparently am doing well at learning, since I am already doing their chat function… hubby said, ‘you are a smart cookie!’

I thought I posted this almost 2 weeks ago! 3rd week of work… I was home sick! I ended up having a serious sinus infection that caused me to be dizzy, be nauseous and more. But my anxiety played into it too… 😑

While home I worked, when up to it, on a knit shawl.

It is coming out beautifully!

Been busy….

I’ve been busy since I last posted. Here are some things that I have done while away.

Here is something I love to make but my stomach hates me for eating too much of when I do. This is what I call barley risotto, it has onions, mushrooms, butter, chicken broth, leftover roasted chicken and yes barley.

Unfortunately my daughters kitty, Bruce, got down and sick, come to find out he has some chronic illness that if stressed enough will bring it on. Poor thing was sick for about a week and really loved medicine time…we mixed it with wet food. He is such a character.

We adopted this cutie, the stressor to kitty :(. Ended up being too much for our whole family, other critters included so we had to give him back. ;(.

Our sweet momma dog, Cleo, left us a few weeks after we got crazy dog. It was very hard for my hubby and I, especially my hubby since he had had her since a pup.

Our sweetie, Dexter, passed away a few weeks ago. Come to find out since ferrets have so much inbreeding they don’t live very long due to tumors or other illnesses. We think he had a tumor on his pancreas.

We got this cutie, Nutmeg, seeing that our other ferret baby seemed to be lonely and depressed due to his brother passing. She is alot of fun and crazy in a very little package. Lol

WIPS and projects is progress…

Will explain them more later! Bye for now!

Daughters Afghan

My daughters afghan is finally finished! It seemed to take forever to tuck the ends and snip them. If found a few places where there were squares not fully connected, so I had to remedy that and one somehow began to unravel, so that was fixed as well.

My daughter proudly put it on her 🛏 bed, we discussed that I put the squares the same way and of course she found the one I didn’t fix after affixing it wrong. She told me that was the uniqueness about it. That was sweet but it bugs me. Lol

This is my daughters way of modeling with the blanket. 😂 🤦🏼‍♀️ teens *shrugs*

Yarning

Awhile ago I received an email from Red Heart and it had what I thought was an interesting topic. It was about yarning, yes that’s right I said yarning. It defined it, which I thought was cool and true. So here it is.

Yarning (verb): the act of creating something out of yarn while passing the time. Your creations are often filled with personal expression and memories either for yourself or for others. For example, “I was yarning on my road trip this past weekend and made these fun, fingerless gloves.”

You could be yarning in the car, while waiting in line, watching a football game, or binge watching your favorite show. Every creation tells the story of what you are doing while yarning.

RedHeart Yarning

Example of me yarning on the road; hubby driving and me talking to him as we go.

I yarn and multitask alot, mostly watching tv, if hubby is with we are binging on Netflix or Hulu!

What do you do while you are yarning?

Today’s pondering 🤔

So, after hubby and the kids leave, I busied myself cleaning some. We needed to rid boxes in the living room and move some things out of the way for the carpets to be steam cleaned. The place we are renting requires us to have it done every 6 months prior to our 6 months inspection….granted we only moved in August, technically (the hubby did, kids and I came in September). Then I worked a few hours, ran to the pharmacy and back and did final preparations for the cleaners.

So I’m watching one of my favorite shows, Law and Order, and on that channel it keep advertising these reality shows. The definition of reality tv is: type of television programming that aims to show how ordinary people behave in everyday life, or in situations, often created by the program makers, which are intended to represent everyday life. Definition of reality tv

In my opinion that is a bunch of horse pucky! (To put it nicely).


These people are on there they are not acting normal, they are going to extremes!


And then of course you have the celebrity reality shows, like they need money and fame??


Then the shows are going to extremes! I mean really are there seriously people out there looking for people that are in jail to date/marry when they get out?? Or do they pay these people??

Ok, so that is my ponderance for today.
