Daily Prompt B+: What I did last Weekend?


Daily Prompt: B+

by michelle w. on February 23, 2013

Write about what you did last weekend as though you’re a music critic reviewing a new album.

Prelude:  Has a woman sitting at her desk asking herself what she really did last weekend.  It was only one week ago.

Track One:

Hubby goes to grocery store on post and has a panic attack before he finishes grocery list and hurries home with ribs (not on list) and half of the grocery list.  Not a great track here.  No happy dancing here.

Track Two:

Wife slowly puts away few groceries and finishes cleaning the house..Not an exciting track here at all.

Track Three:

Time to feed the animals again.  They eat three times a day in small portions. This track is a bit better.  At least a little better dancing.

Track Four:

Time to blog of course since Daily Prompt never takes a break.  This is definitely a better dance track while working.

Track Five:

This track is all about getting in a shipment from Tupperware and Scentsy that I had to inventory and stamp catalogs.  Not very exciting but very necessary since we were out of catalogs and only had Canadian Catalogs no USA ones. This track had a bonus track with it.

Track Six:

This is where Tammye Honey decided that she was hungry and made dinner.  A simple track but easy to follow.

Track Seven:

Short track of time to do the dishes.  Only wish I had a dishwasher.

Track Eight:

Time to relax and watch some tv while crocheting a light evening of quiet time snuggled in the bed with two dogs and a cat.

Hope this leaves you in a relaxed mode to be able to continue and read what other Daily Prompt Writers had to say on this subject:

Daily Prompt: Call Me, Maybe


Daily Prompt: Call Me, Maybe

by michelle w. on February 5, 2013

Describe your relationship with your phone. Is it your lifeline, a buzzing nuisance, or something in between?

Since moving from New York State to Tennessee, I have left friends and family.  I am in daily contact with my friends back home and am able to at least text my family who are busy working every day to tell them that I love them.  It is nice that at even 7:30 AM my time, my foster daughter can call me and tell me she is upset that she has to go to a funeral of a best friends mom who passed away from Cancer and she knows I will answer and talk to her.  Verizon to Verizon.

I am guilty of playing the game Draw something with a family member back in New York all day long on my phone.

Thank goodness we have wifi throughout the house and I am connected to that so I am not using my actual telephone rates.  My phone usage is minimal, which keeps our bill way down.

We use my new phone to use the square up for customers to be able to make purchases in the store.

square up1

This is a nice new feature which again is on wifi so we are still at a minimal cost with the telephone company.  With this feature, our customers can use their debit or credit cards and save their cash for the grocery store or gas stations.

It has also increased our sales potential in the store quite a bit.

square up

A neat little square that I just plug into my phone when I need it then swipe away. When I am finished, I just unplug.  The receipt goes to the customers email and I save on paper.

As far as using my telephone for anything else besides a camera, there is really nothing else that it is used for at the present time.

It would be nice to be able to find my voice mails a little easier than what I have to go through to find them lol.

Motherhood (The Manual is on backorder)


When my children were babies life was so interesting.

Dr. Spock had his place and at 2 AM I found that when the baby was running a fever and I had tried everything in that book…

It was always in hard cover then lol

It became the door stop that kept the bedroom door from completely closing to let a little light in from the hall.

I would sit with the baby across my lap and rub chilled baby lotion across their backs till they went back to sleep as I rocked them in my lap.  I did refer to the book from time to time but only as a reference guide.

not many brands back then either lol

When my daughters got older and were at the age that they felt that I knew nothing…my favorite expression was that they were correct…”The Parent’s Manual” is still on back order…

It was enough to silence their complaints for the moment since I had agreed with them after all lol…

With working three jobs to support the two girls alone (following a divorce)… I tried to be cheery how ever there were times when certain phrases were like fingernails going down a chalk board.

ugh

I had came home after a double shift, showered and walked to get a cart full of groceries.  I put away all of the groceries and walked back to the store to return the cart then bought the remaining groceries that were needed that I could carry and walked back home.

After putting all of those groceries away, I again showered and proceeded to my next job, leaving a note on the fridge door for the girls to make dinner for themselves as there was plenty of food.  Also added for them not to add the neighborhood to dinner.

I was a waitress at a steak house just down the street from our house so that I was close to the girls should there be an emergency.  They were old enough to babysit and had taken the girl scout courses so I thought they were ok to be checked on by my neighbor who needed to borrow a lot of stuff during the course of a night.

Thank goodness she gave back

I look out of the corner of my eye as I am taking a customer’s order and across the restaurant in another waiter’s station…it is my two daughters…I calmly continue to take the order and go about setting up the table.

As I head to the kitchen to place the order, I swing past my manager and ask if he knew anything about how my daughters paid for their meals.  He simply replies “Oh they charged it again.”… “Again?????”  This had been reoccurring?  No wonder my miscellaneous meals and expenses were so high…I never ate on shift…I had questioned the checks each time with the manager only to get the response that they were correct.  No wonder.

I asked him why and he replied that they had told him there was “Nothing to eat at home”…grrrrrrrrrr… I began to explain to him that I could not get another package of food in my fridge, cupboards or freezer if my life depended on it at the moment.  However, my two lazy daughters would have had to have prepared something.  Which, mind you, they were both well capable of.

I walked past my daughters and smiled and simply said “Enjoy your meals, I will see you at home.”  “Perhaps next time, you and your friends can sit in my area.”  Then I just walked away.

When I got off from my shift, both daughters were home, sitting at the table doing their homework as if they were the model daughters.  I took a shower to get the steak house smell off and climbed into my jammies then proceeded into the kitchen.

I walked to the cupboard and proceeded to place cans of soup on the floor slowly emptying out the entire cupboard.

As my daughters looked at me in shock…they asked what I was doing…

I simply replied “Nothing, this is a fragment of your imagination, since there is no food in this house…I am doing absolutely nothing.”

last laugh

With that, I went upstairs and went to bed…

I came down the next morning to all of the food having been put away and from that day on, I never heard “there is no food in this house” or “there is nothing to eat”.

Now they look back and laugh saying remember the night mom went crazy and emptied all the cupboards…a memory was made…

Point Taken Too…

Without raising my voice, yelling or getting upset…it was handled…and the meals at the restaurant also stopped on my tab… They began to pay with their babysitting money.

Thank you for reading…

Great Shopping Finds


While in the grocery store today (which is the one place, besides the dentist, I hate to go) I actually had fun… 🙂 I found some great stuff today.  So I thought I would share it with you.  Especially those who suffer from allergies like I do.  I was happy when I found the rice flour in the Korean Market, however it came in a tiny box.  Today I found gluten free flour and it came in a 24 oz box and is King Arthur Multipurpose Flour.

Nice option to baking

In the same isle there was a cake mix by Betty Crocker so I grabbed that too as that was also gluten free…

Can’t wait to try

Did not know hubby was standing behind me till he spoke up and said “Gee I really hope you are grabbing those brownies too!…Last ones you made were great!”

So, I grabbed the brownies too lol…

These are yummy

Hubby never knew anything about gluten free or anything about why I buy this brand just that he likes them lol…

Thought I would share.. since some things are so hard to find…

Oh and I might lock up my key board tonight as I left Facebook on computer last night and here was a post this morning…both cats were in last night too…hmmmm

They used another cat picture so I would not know which cat did it…

Have a great night…

Tammye Honey…
