Doctor’s orders   Leave a comment

every night after the worldly news on channel 9 my husband flips the channel to FOX and we watch reruns of “Two and a Half Men”
before that program while we are watching news, a show called “The Doctors” (I think) is on.
So we catch a minute of two of the last part of the show.
And every evening the main guy (doctor) says….”… this or do this…those are my doctor’s orders”
Last night it was on plastic surgery on the face.
And as he was ending the program he said “Be happy with who you are and all your little imperfections. They make you unique and they sum up the person that is you”
And I thought…..what a cool thought
I have many imperfections.
The most obvious to me is my thinning hair on the top of my head.
I hate it and I feel like it is like a flashing red sign saying “LOOK HERE!! BALD SPOT FORMING!”
and I am very conscience of it.
I hate it.
But I inherited it from my mother so…it makes up a part of who I am.
Another obvious imperfection is the gap between my two front teeth.
I wore braces for almost six years (three years each time) to correct this gap in my front teeth.
But alas it still opened up and there it is for all the world to see….

I think my best feature is my eyes.
And next to that would be my tallness.
I can carry around a lot more weight than most people and I don’t look as heavy as I really am
(or so my sister tells me)
I would like to be 60 pounds lighter than I am, but I struggle with it constantly, mostly during these long winter months.
Still it is a part of who I am.

I have a sister who has told me that if she came into money she would get a boob job.
According to her, she has pancakes for breasts and I don’t realize how lucky I am to have a nice breast package.
I personally say I just have more to sag (sorry for the gross image)
but she wants bigger breasts
And of all of us girls, she and my sister Linda weren’t blessed with the larger breasts like the rest of us
(If you could call it blessed???)

still it is a part of me and therefore according to the doctor on the program last night….I should be happy and yes proud of all of my imperfections.
Doctor’s orders you know?

the need for secrets   Leave a comment

I wonder why people need to keep things secret
I wonder why they act like they are your best friend but don’t reveal all to you or share everything with you.
It doesn’t make sense to me.
Secrets are for being or acting dishonest.
Secrets are hurtful and can be devastating.
I just wonder why people feel the need for them?
Aren’t we suppose to be one big happy family?
Aren’t we suppose to be the best of friends?
Some body please explain it to me.
Because I don’t understand.

The Bone Garden   Leave a comment

I just finished this book “The Bone Garden” and while it took me a couple of tries to get into it, I have to say it was a very good book.
My sister bought it for me and when she did I thought “Yuck, a book about finding a dead body? What makes her think I would like this?”
but she likes the author Tess Gerritsen so she bought the book for me.
I am glad she did.
I really liked it.
If only I could write like that.
My sister of course can and hopefully one day she will get her act together enough to get a book published.
She will have a huge following if she does.
Now all she has to do is believe she can do it.

a busy weekend   Leave a comment

so it is Friday and I am at work
I have the girls tonight to watch them, and I need to get time in there to do laundry and clean the house.
Tomorrow we go and look at the house my son and his wife want to buy.
and then I have the girls tomorrow night again to watch.
Keira is sick so I’m not sure how she will be, wheather it will be whiny because she doesn’t feel good or will she just want to be held and comforted?
I’m guessing the latter.

Sunday is the funeral and we were suppose to go to the movie “Valentine’s Day” with Ashton Kutcher and a bunch of other popular actors.
not sure if we will or not, or even if we will feel like it after the funeral.
but before I know it Monday will be here again and there will be another week to deal with.
