I’ve been hitting the treadmill hard these past few days. Well I should clarify, hard for me. I walked to it this morning and my muscles did what the dog does when I want him to walk on the treadmill (go stiff and refuse to get any closer). So, I didn’t and I probably won’t tonight, just so my legs can rest. I know I’m going to regret it, especially since we stopped at Taco Bell on the way home tonight. One of my many weeknesses … well, maybe I will end up jog/walking for just a little bit anyway.
One of our customers committed suicide the other night. Not something that is a pleasant thing to talk about, but it’s a wierd thing. On one hand I can understand why, since he was really ill, in alot of pain and waiting for an organ transplant, then was diagnosed with cancer about a month ago. On the other hand, I’m not sure that suicide is the answer. Especially doing it at home, in your bed, for your family to find you. It seems like an extremely selfish thing to do. I wouldn’t want to have any of my family members to have to walk in on something like that. It breaks my heart just thinking of it.
Plus the fact that I wouldn’t take my life, since it isn’t mine to take. The consequences (physical and spiritual) are too great. But his family are in my prayers for comfort and some kind of peace. I just hope the little grandchildren weren’t anywhere near.
I watched the last half of MJ’s memorial service. I was glad I caught Usher’s performance and was touched by his emotions. I wasn’t quite sure why that senator was there taking up the air time and ending with giving a plaque for MJ. I know she had a point to all the blah blah blahing she did, but I thought it strange to end her speech that way. Maybe if I listened to her speech it would have made sense, but all I heard was Charlie Brown’s teacher … “Waah waah waah waah waah” I thought the rest was really nice and I loved Smokey Robinson’s speech … unfortunately, I missed the first half with Brooke, Stevie Wonder, Queen Latifah and all … I guess I’ll have to watch it online somewhere.
So, do I have any packing done? N O , NADDA, NOT A DANG THING … lol … I’m having probs getting my head wrapped around it. We do have some boxes packed, however, they were already packed and sitting here. We’ve been going through them to see if we can consolidate any … but, that’s not going too well either. I have to call the office supply place we use for work and ask if they’ll save some boxes for me. Tomorrow the estimator for the moving company comes over. I’m hoping it will be doable. There is no way we can do this ourselves … again.
A friend of a friend, got us a room at a local casino. So to show my appreciation, I was going to make him something. I found out today that he loves filipino food … so … I’m thinking Lupia or Adobo or both … lol … we’ll see how much energy I have after work tomorrow. Meat Lumpia isn’t hard, it’s just the wrapping that takes forever. And Adobo, pretty much cooks itself … so … what am I really saying ?? LOL I wonder if there’s a local filipino restaurant nearby … I may end up picking something up from there … we will see.
Well, I guess I had better go and attempt to do something constructive. Y’all have a great humday evening.
