Tomorrow my sister will be celebrating her birthday. I wish she could spend the day doing everything fun and nice for herself to pamper her body and relax the mind. Wouldn’t that be a wonderful way to start the next year of your life?
It is unfortunate that she will not have that luxury, since tomorrow we are expecting the hurricane. Sis – I love you and hope you manage to have a happy and stress free day on your birthday!
Everyone is in a mad rush to get ready for the hurricane that is picking up speed and heading our way. The stores are having a hard time keeping the usual items stocked that people always rush in to purchase when something like this happens. I’m all set and ready to hunker down for the week end, but it looks like some of my neighbors are still at it. They are busy taking their lawn chairs, umbrellas and other pool related items and placing them in their pools, which I think is a pretty cool idea actually. After they load their pools up then they put their above ground pool covers on and everything should be safe and sound in there.
The first time I had heard of people doing that I thought it was pretty strange, but after it was explained to me I had to admit that it was a pretty good idea, something that I don’t think I would have thought of, but then again I don’t own a pool. Actually I am the only one on the block that doesn’t have pool, why should I when I have been invited to enjoy many of theirs if I want to, so I will spend my hard earned money on other things that I need and want instead.
For as long as I have lived here we have had to take the trash to the curb on Sunday in order for the trash truck to pick it up on Monday, usually before noon. I just got a notice informing me that they are changing the pick up day to Tuesday, starting next week. Not a big deal really – but I am a creature of habit and I hope that I can remember the change and that all will work out smoothly and I won’t end up with a lot of trash built up due to my bad memory.
One thing I can truly thank my parents for not passing down to me is the fat gene. If anything I tend to struggle with keeping weight on, so I don’t know all that much about natural fat burners and all the other natural options that are out there except from what I hear on occasion from some of my friends that are trying to lose weight. My best friend just informed me that she has talked with her doctor about getting the lap band procedure that so many have turned to and have had so much success with. She is nervous about the whole deal, rightfully so, I wish that she wouldn’t have to go to such extremes in order to trim down, but I know how important it is to her at this point of her life, so I have promised to go with her when she goes to have it done and be there to take her home and help her with anything that I can possibly do.
What a wacky weather week we are having, first we had the earthquake and now we are expecting a major hurricane. We haven’t been to the beach but once this summer, so we were planning on going this weekend since the following weekend is Labor Day and the beach is the last place we want to be on that major holiday that is always jammed packed with people enjoying the last weekend of the summer season.
