Waiting For Wednesday

Waiting For Wednesday - 01/01/13 10:28 PM

"Time is the scarcest resource and unless it is managed nothing else can be managed."
Peter F Drucker

A teacher asks her class if anyone can use the word fascinate in a sentence. Brian raises his hand and says, "The sky is fascinating."

The teacher says, "No that's fascinating."

Jennifer raises her hand and says, "When I saw the tigers at the zoo I was fascinated."

The teacher says, "No that's fascinated."

So finally Little Johnny raises his hand and says, "My mom bought a new blouse with 12 pearl buttons, but her chest's so big she could only fasten eight!"

Hard work never killed anybody, but why take a chance?

One day a florist goes for a haircut. After the cut, he goes to pay the barber and the barber replies: "I am sorry. I cannot accept money from you, I am doing a community service". The florist is happy and leaves the shop.
The next morning when the barber goes to open his shop, there is a card and a dozen roses waiting at his door. A butcher goes for a haircut the next day and he also goes to pay the barber and the barber reples: "I am sorry. I cannot accept money from you. I am doing a community service". The butcher is happy and leaves the shop.
The next morning the barber goes to open his shop and there is a thank you card and a package of steaks waiting at his door.
The next day a Fireman goes for a haircut and goes to pay the barber. The barber replies: "I am sorry. I cannot accept money from you, I am doing a community service".
The next morning when the barber goes to open his shop, guess what he finds at the door?

Can you guess?

Come on, think like a Fireman....

....two dozen other Firemen waiting for free haircuts!

I’m Tired...

Yes, I’m tired. For several years I’ve been blaming it on getting older, lack of sleep, weekend projects, stale office air, poor nutrition, carrying a couple of extra pounds, raising a family, recent ailments, and a dozen other reasons that make you wonder why life is getting tough.

But now I found out what’s really happening! I’m tired because I’m overworked. The population of the USA reached 300 million last October. 79 million of the population are retired. That leaves 221 million to do the work. There are 19 million toddlers and 76 million students in schools, which leaves 126 million to do the work. Of that total, 21 million are unemployed leaving 105 million to do the work.

Then you take away 34 million in hospitals and that leaves 71 million to do the work. 43 million are in prisons and that’s 28 million left to do the work. Now take away 14,683,468 federal, 5,344,722 state and 5,370,743 city workers who run our government and you’re left with 2,601,067 to do the work. Take away the 2,601,065 people in the armed forces and that leaves just two people to do the work - You and Me!
And you’re just sitting there reading this! No wonder I’m tired!!!

You know you're a teacher if:

You believe the staff room should be equipped with a Valium salt lick.
You find humor in other people's stupidity.
You want to slap the next person who says "Must be nice to work 8 to 3:20 and have summers free."
You believe chocolate is a food group.
You can tell if it's a full moon without ever looking outside.
You believe "Shallow gene pool" should have its own box in the report card.
You believe that unspeakable evils will befall you if anyone says "Boy, the kids sure are mellow today.
When out in public you feel the urge to snap your fingers at children you do not know and correct their behavior.
You have no life between August to June.
When you mention "Vegetables" you're not talking about a food group.
You think people should be required to get a government permit before being allowed to reproduce.
You wonder how some parents ever MANAGED to reproduce.
You believe in aerial spraying of Prozak.
You believe no one should be permitted to reproduce without having taught in an elementary setting for the last 10 years.
You've ever had your profession slammed by someone who would "Never DREAM" of doing your job.
You think caffeine should be available in intravenous form.
You know you are in for a major project when a parent says "I have a great idea I'd like to discuss. I think it would be such fun."
You want to choke a person when he or she says "Oh, you must have such FUN everyday. This must be like playtime for you."
Meeting a child's parent instantly answers the question "Why is this kid like this?"


Good morning everyboomie.....I think. wave12

I've been time traveling again.

I know it sounds glamerous, but it's pretty confusing at times.

I went from today to the day after yesterday, back to today, and then to the day before tomorrow and back, and I found out some profoundly interesting things. duh12

I found out that no matter how far you travel ahead or backwards in time, it still feels just like today when you get there. shocked

Also, when I traveled to the day after yesterday, I didn't even feel a day older. AND when I traveled back to the day before tomorrow I didn't feel any younger, and what's worse is that my Mom didn't even look any younger!

The scariest thing of all is that when I set my machine to go to the day before tomorrow, I found I was already there before I even got in the machine.

OMG!!! I don't even need a time machine anymore to time travel! scared

I think my body has absorbed too many gamma rays.

Tomorrow I'm going to travel back to the day before tomorrow, and see what really happened on that day in history.

Maybe I can stop something terrible from happening, like being scheduled to work today from 1:00 to 10:00. taz

One thing I do know for sure is that no matter where you go, there you are. rolleyes12

Have a happy day everyone, because the day after yesterday only comes.....................well it comes pretty often actually. snicker

That's alright, have a happy day anyway. thumbsup12

Good morning everyone.

Brrr it is cold this morning. 11 degrees when we got up this a.m. Bill is at the podiatrist so it is quiet here for now. :lol:

We took all our decorations down yesterday and had a quiet day. Didn't do much of anything else. We both played for awhile. Don't know what is in store for us today. May do some straightening up in a storage closet downstairs.

Cory is barking. Bill must be home.

Re: Waiting For Wednesday - 01/02/13 04:52 PM

Awwww, back from some loft bed hunting with hubby. No luck at all. Remember when you used to be able to be hands on with stuff before you bought it?

Anyways, now home and very sleepy. I think I'm entering into hibernation mode. <insert sleeping bear smiley here>

Re: Waiting For Wednesday - 01/02/13 06:25 PM

Yep Joe, I KNOW I'm a teacher...so many things I identify with. Thanks for the reminder. AND thank goodness I'm retired!

Spotted today! A blue and white 1961 or 2 Nash Metropolitan. Ohhhh I'm in love. It was parked outside the Goodwill when I came out. I was gonna go back in and yell for whoever owned it so I could show my admiration, but then reconsidered. Would have been so funny. AND it had the naked lady hood ornament! Rare rare rare. When I sold my last one, I took that one off and have it sitting here on top of my computer desk. Love it. It sits next to my 'flying lady' from some other rare car, and a Mac truck Doggie. Hood ornaments are a great collection.

So now I dream of owning another Metropolitan and then remember how difficult it was to keep it running. Ugh. Even so, cute cute cute and loads of people staring and waving when I went around town. Miss those days.

Cold out and now my outdoorsie cats seem to be coming down with something. First one, then another now 3 of the 7 are showing bad signs. I'm hoping it's something simple and will go away, but I fear this might be a bad thing. The two oldest ones are getting thin but eating a bunch. Dunno why but I've changed back to the 'common' foods and no more treats. Might just be a tummy upset. Praying for them to perk up. I will know in a week if it's serious or just something minor causing it. Sigh sigh. I'll check with animal control to see if anything is 'going around'. Outdoorsies are usually pretty hardy and don't get sick. Phooey! Hate worrying but nothing to do but wait and see if they have something treatable or if it's connected to the last batch of canned food.

Off to hug the heater.

Re: Waiting For Wednesday - 01/02/13 06:29 PM

No taxi tonight as they all decided not to go out. Guess they all had enough New Years Eve. lol12 So I spent the day dedecorating my apartment and the hallway! Looks bear now. sad but I'm sure that will fill in quickly.

Ana that seems like a long list of to-do's. lol12 Some fun though. Hope the corner is moving right along!!

Space have a nice evening.

Trippy have fun cleaning inbetween gaming! lol12

L4l hopefully one of these days there will be peace and quiet for you to just do what you want and relax!! My neice just sold her loft bed. Hope ya find one.

Re: Waiting For Wednesday - 01/02/13 06:49 PM

Sorry, this is the first I have sat down since this morning except for quick mail checks. What a crazy busy but productive day.
My internet and WT writing computer got

L4L, I have a loft bed here from IKEA, have you checked them?

TRippy, how are the pups feeling now? I hope you have some fun gaming time.

SpaceQ, how is life treating you?

Manxman, hope your day was awesome!

Gail, I am glad you are feeling better. hearts

Connie, are the boys back?

Midgie, are you all settled in now? How is mom?

Venus, hope you are feeling better!

Gerry, do you have snow yet?

Sue, it sounds like you got the cold there too! It was bitter running the dogs today when the wind blows.

Nan, I love taking the decorations down more than putting it up. lol12 That's a rarity that your crew wants to stay home. They must have had a great time on NYE!
I added a trip to Best Buy, the cleaners and the weekly grocery shopping to my list from this morning. On top of cooking up all hubby's lunches and snacks since I am now feeding him 24 hours a day so he can lose weight. He has turned himself over to me. eek12

Ok...work time.

Re: Waiting For Wednesday - 01/02/13 10:47 PM

Ana my last visit with my Mom was very bad. I've called her since then but she has such a hard time talking on the phone my heart hurts for her. It'll be a few weeks before I can go see her again. It's very hard for me. I could use a very big hug.

Going to bed now. I worked for another care giver (and a friend) because she was very sick so my day off was not. She'd do it for me though I'm sure. I had a very hard day. PT this morning....very painful, then this afternoon I had a chiropractic appointment so my old body went through the paces today. I'm ready for bed now. Night all. See you in the AM. Sweet dreams.
