You are 73% Taurus

I think this fits me pretty well since I am a Taurus.

Your 80s Hunk Is

Scott Baio

I admit, I did indeed have a crush on Scott Baio when I was younger. Actually, he’s still not too bad on the eyes:)

Your Linguistic Profile:

85% General American English

10% Dixie

0% Midwestern

0% Upper Midwestern

0% Yankee

Found this one a bit odd. I grew up in the Midwest, yet have no percentage of that type of english in my vocabulary. Odd.

You Are Scissors

Sharp and brilliant, you can solve almost any problem with that big brain of yours.
People fear your cutting comments – and your wit is famous for being both funny and cruel.
Deep down, you tend to be in the middle of an emotional storm. Your own complexity disturbs you.
You are too smart for your own good. Slow down a little – or you’re likely to hurt yourself.

You can cut a paper person down to pieces.

The only person who can ruin you is a rock person.

When you fight: You find your enemy’s weak point and exploit it.

If someone makes you mad: You’ll do everything you can to destroy their life

You Are 55% Addicted to the Internet

You’re somewhat addicted to the internet – but who isn’t?
You can keep it under check, and you’re by no means a hermit.

And on that note, I’m logging off now…….because I can:)

I’m not a big fan of sports. I don’t watch football, basketball, baseball, etc. unless it is our high school team and I know some of the kids. I’ve just never understood why people are such fans of those sports. That is until I sat down and watched a hockey game that my son had on. To begin with, I was just watching the guys skate and thinking about the skill that it took to stay upright on those things. Then I actually started watching the game and realized, “Hey, this is very enjoyable”. And then a fight broke out and for some reason that really got my adrenaline going and for the rest of the game I was on the edge of my seat, rooting the guys on and screaming every time they’d score.

So, now I’m kind of a hockey fan, I guess, and am interested in seeing how the hockey draft goes. I found a great website that promotes the draft and you can check it out by visiting hockeysfuture.com. There you will find the top prospects, NHL rankings, ISS Top 10, News and Links to all things hockey.

Yes, I am a Harry Potter fan. I never thought I would be, but I was hooked after the first book. I have waited patiently each time a new book came out and then devoured the entire thing, usually in one sitting. So, it probably comes as no surprise that I did snatch up a copy of the newest book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, when it came out on Saturday. Actually, I had preordered it about 4 months ago and it arrived via USPS that afternoon. I immediately sat down and started to read. I wasn’t able to read the entire book that day, but from what I’ve read so far it is very very good. I believe that I will be finished at some point this evening. I am not going to write any spoilers here because, if you’re like me, you want to read the book for yourself. I will be happy to discuss the book, however, with anyone who has already read it. Just drop me an email.

Freeze It

Posted on: July 21, 2007

Ok, so as most of you know, I joined Curves back in March. I’ve been going faithfully 3 days a week ever since. That is until my mom decided to go to Hawaii for two weeks. See, we always go to the gym together and it just didn’t’ seem fair to me that I was still going and working out when she was lounging on the beach, drinking mai tais! So, I took that time off too. I stayed in bed late every day and didn’t work out at all. I did swim in the pool almost every day, but nothing too strenuous was done. I was on vacation too.

Well, needless to say, our first day back in the gym was pure torture! My muscles were screaming at me. I was sore in places that I didn’t think I could be sore! I needed some relief and I needed it fast! Imagine my surprise when I received a free sample of the new pain relief gel known as Freeze It in the mail. I immediately had to try it out to see if it worked.

Forgive me for not smiling in this picture, but I am too sore to do so.

After applying the cool gel to my thigh muscles, I waited on it to go to work. Boy, was I pleasantly surprised! Within seconds, the coolness turned warm and that warmth soaked right into my muscles, immediately soothing the aches and pain. I like it much better then some of the other pain relief gels on the market today. Freeze It is stain free, greaseless and has a vanishing scent and the best part is that is is so much cheaper then other brands. Check out their commercial and see for yourself.

I highly recommend picking up some Freeze It the next time you head to the store. If you ever have sore muscles, this product is #1 on providing you relief.

Two different opinions here. Please tell me which one is right.

The background: Work at Home business has informal office. No set hours really, work out of the house, take care of home, family and work at the same time.

Side #1: Office help answers phones from time she gets out of bed in morning until she goes to bed at night, does billing and any other business stuff that is needed, but if something comes up with kids or family takes takes the time during the day to take care of the problem then works later into the evening to make up for it. If cars oil needs changed, she goes early in the morning then comes back and answers any messages that have been left. She does not take a lunch hour but rather answers phones, does paperwork, etc. while eating at her desk. She does not take specific breaks either and usually has the phone with her wherever (and I do mean wherever) she goes so as not to miss any calls. Also works on weekends, but does not get paid for anything or get thanks or gratitude for doing anything.

Side #2: Owner of business is out working physcially from 4am to 6pm most days of the week. He does not take a lunch or a break either. When something needs done he calls office help and expects it to be done at that exact minute. Expects office help to be on call 24-7 whether it is weekday or weekend. Does not want office help to do anything except set by the phone, waiting for people to call. If office help needs to get things done with kids, owner does not want it to be during business hours however also doesn’t want office help to take the day off to do those things. For example, doctor’s appt. should always be on weekends but our doctor doesn’t work on weekends and other things like that which can only be done during the week. He also expects office help to drop everything at once if HE needs her to run somewhere or do something for him. Never says good job, never says thank you for any job that office help does. Contantly yells at office help when things are not right, but when office help gets upset and yells back it is her fault and she shouldn’t do that.

Ok, I’m sure you realize that office help is me and owner is hubby. But please tell me who is in the right here? We’ve always said from the very beginning of this business that if things had to be done during the weekday that it would be fine that I do them as long as work didn’t suffer. Work has NEVER suffered from my being gone a few hours during the day. Very rarely do I leave this house unless it is at the end of the week and things are slow business-wise and even when I do leave, if I come home to messages I IMMEDIATELY return those calls. We’ve NEVER had set office hours in the entire 5 years that we’ve done this. People call anywhere from 5am to 11pm so how can we? I do put a limit on when I take phone calls, but apparantly even that is wrong to do. Now hubby has forbidden me from going to lunch with my grandma who will be turning 99(!!!) years old this Saturday because it will interfere with “the workday”. I am sick and tired of it. If this was an actual office setting then I could understand it, but it’s not. If any other “boss” treated me this way, I would have quit a long time ago, but with it being my hubby I can’t very well do that without risking marital strife too.

So, anyway, anybody that has any comments I’d really appreciate them. Even if they are comments stating that I am in the wrong, please leave them here. It’s entirely possible that I am not seeing how wrong I am in this situation.

Update: Just got a call from Mr. Wonderful and now he is saying how sorry he is for acting like a jerk, I do a lot for him and he doesn’t want to fight anymore. Ok, so apparantly he’s had time to “think” about today, but you know what? It’ll happen again in another week or two. This is a neverending episode in our lives right now. He yells, I cry/yell, he apologizes, I continue to walk around on eggshells. I just wish he’d stop yelling in the first place. If he has a problem, talk about it instead of immediately jumping down my throat. I guess he’s never heard that you catch more flies with honey. Oh well, I guess this will make for an interesting evening. At least it won’t be an extremely tense one.
