It’s A Bread Thing


I love bread. Good bread. Homemade bread. The smell of fresh baked bread. hmmm

BUT I’m not suppose to have bread. Like rice, pasta and ice cream and anything that has sugar, you know the good stuff that I need to avoid. But you know when the doctor tells you; you can’t HAVE that, you kinda of fudge it and say “well just a little bit.” 🙂  Hmmm and that little bit makes you crave it more. Such is my life. LOL

I keep telling myself; I’m killing me. And me responds, “yeah just a little bit.”  I’m kind of slow like that. I think I’ve improved. I don’t go HOG wild. oink oink! Yeah I’m just a baby pig now, as oppose to the big pig that I was. 🙂

It doesn’t help that I work in a company that bonds over food and people bring food to share. If its on the kitchen table, its first come first serve help yourself.  Which is dangerous for people who have very low will power.

We have people who come from communities where they bake bread in outdoor ovens and make more then enough bread for the whole community.  My friends bring bread all the time. Their bread is healthier than store bought I think. No preservatives.  Ancient recipes from way back when.  Bread and buttah! I love bread and butter. ❤

I don’t think anyone has died from eating bread but I don’t think it helps the blood sugar thing, so eventually yeah it could lead a person to expire from the intake. So I should stop.

I write this while having a thin bagel and cream cheese. I was thinking THIN bagels are better/less bread then regular size bagels right. But I’m eating two thin bagels and I think that equals one regular size bagel.  FAIL 🙂  Note2Self:  YOU should not eat it all!  Okay fine, DO NOT eat bread, pasta, rice and sugar but everything else knock yourself out. LOL

Note taken. Okay after I finish this last bagel:)

Ice Skating


I had never ever been ice skating. But my #1 Granddaughter had her birthday at a skating rink. So I participated.

The Ice Den has two skating rinks and a couple of party rooms. It was really nice, they decorate and do the pizza, drinks and cake thing. I thought it was pretty awesome that they really catered to the kids. They served the kids and I think the kids were kind of in shock. They all got up to get pizza and the Workergirl said no, sit down I’ll get it for you and all their eyebrows went up as they sat back down. LOL

After eating, playing & singing happy birthday and opening presents it was time for the ice skating to commence.  I didn’t know there was a difference between figure skates and hockey skates. Something about  the blade in the front?

Anyway I chose the figure skating skates. Thinking I would channel my inner Christy Yamaguchi or  Michelle Kwan. Did not  happen NOT even come close. 🙂

I already had/have a “broken ass” excuse me sprained hip flexor and I was wearing one of those big back belt brace.  I had been using it to work and it helps me keep my posture and made it less painful.  Without the brace I felt myself leaning forward from the pain or leaning back with my hand on my hip. The back brace helped keep me straight LOL well it felt good at least, I didn’t think about the ache that I was feeling.

So for the first time I put on some figure skates. Its more like heavy boots. But I had to walk from the party room to the rink; which was 3 doors down. I was off balanced then I was balanced and I figured out I could walk IF I copied Frankenstein. So I walked with my arms out and stiffed legged and I reached the rink.

So birthday girl got to ride the Zamboni; part to the Birthday Party package deal. We stood on the side of the rink waving and after standing for about 10 minutes I was like, ok I must sit. My ankles started to feel the strain of my weight. 🙂

Finally everyone got on the ice.  I made sure to be last one because I was very unsure. So they have these walkers that you can take onto the ice.  Its suppose to prop you up and help. So I gingerly get on to the ice with the walker making sure I’m hugging the wall. Mean while the everyone else is zooming by and probably on their second lap all ready.

I’m at the wall, inching myself forward. Literally. The slippery-ness makes me tense. As I move forward I scream. Thinking I’m gonna fall but I didn’t fall but I felt like I would. But my body would tense in anticipation of crashing. And I stopped. LOL I was maybe 10 feet from the gate entry and decided better quit while I’m ahead. So I  turned around and scooted back to the entry to exit.  Still screaming and startling the kids. The kid handing out the walkers was at the entry exit  and he helped me out and took the walker. I said:  I’m too old for this shit. We just cracked up.

Now I can say confidently say;  ‘yeah I tried ice skating.’

Random Rants & Thoughts


@Office:  Just freaking put paper in the copier! Don’t tell me you need to call IT or something is wrong with the copier blah blah blah. The reason it copied onto letterhead is because Tray 1 was empty! If you keep Tray 1 filled it won’t kick into Tray 2 – Letterhead. Swear to gawd people it is not rocket science. If its empty, fill it!

@SupremeCourtshit:  Democracy undermined? Sad state of the nation; well its a reflection of the leadership or lack of whatever. Regardless of the frkng politics our everyday lives moves on and we as people perservere inspite of the richpoliticos. We work & pay our bills & taxes & vote. We do the right thing.  Unlike those who try to hide their money offshore somewhere, try to not pay any taxes as much as possible, act like they so better than their constituents, say one thing and do totally the opposite; say they care with words but not with their actions. I feel sad for America. 😦

The 51 Senators who voted YES represent 143 million Americans and the 49 Senators who voted NO represent 182 million Americans. Democracy undermined. 😦

@Facebook: My dear FB friends, am I the only one who has not been hacked, duplicated and whatever else you have been posting at me.  Its a pyramid scheme, you know like a chain letter. Take your name off the list and  your tell your 988 friends. WTH

@Twitter&Instagram:  My bad, I’ve been using Twitter like Instagram and vice versa. Hope y’all don’t mind.

@Twitter: I have 35 Followers. Sooooooo? Does that mean I’m not popular? Not that I need to be or anyghing. Having followers is not a priority or necessary. I think of the word “Followers” in sort of the same sense as “stalkers” – so yeah I’m okay with the least amount of stalkers, I mean followers.  I’m always suspicious if/when someone I do not know in person wants to “follow” me. Where do you think I might take you? I retweet a lot, ok maybe I retweet more then I tweet. I’m retweeted like that. LOL

@Instagram: I love looking at pictures.  I should use it more. I always forget its there. 🙂

@Snapchat:  I don’t get, by the time I do its not there. What is the point? I’m slow like that.

@iceskating: I tried to yesteray.  Too hilarious. Will write about it later.

PainInDaAss


Brokenass well not really broken but sure as hell painful, so Painindaass 🙂 Yes, I am Badass. LOL

Every time I say the word “ass” or “shit”, Granddaughter is on me:  LANGUAGE!

Stretching out helps. Sitting doesn’t.  Sitting for a long time sends a surge of pain across my hips or down the outside of my leg.  Did I mention I do an hour commute? Yeah so I’m very careful getting out of the vehicle.

I figured out part of the problem is me getting in the vehicle.  So graceful. LOL I get into the vehicle ASS first. Its a small SUV so its higher than my ass LOL I have to remember to step up into the vehicle not ass in first into the vehicle.  I’m learning.  I use to drive the Fast&Furious, Toyota Celica. Or Toyota Cecelia Granddaughter calls it. Its low to the ground right so I just lean on the seat and slide down. So with the SUV I guess I was leaning on the seat and trying to slide up, even though my ass didn’t reach that high, I tried anyway.  Hence the Painindaass. LOL

When I lie down and don’t move its fine. So I guess I’ll just lie down and not move. Good luck with that.

Pain of the Week


The other week it was my shoulder. Rotator cuff?  I woke with an ugly pain in my shoulder.  Could not figure out what I did. Figured it out later. I don’t know how to sleep. I slept with my hand over my head something I don’t usually do. If it hurts when you do that don’t do that. 🙂

So this Saturday I got outta bed and was like WTH. A pain in the ass? No it’s not my behind, it the side, the hip. How the hell? Again I don’t know how to sleep maybe. Total achey breaky pain at the top of hip; right where I put my hand. The pain has been draining but it feels better when I stretch out and walk. Although getting started is slow and painful. I can do it! LOL

I haven’t taken any drugs for it. No Tylenol no nothing.  Glutton for punishment like that. Pain is a reminder I’m still alive. Good luck with that. All part of hypothyroiding, just deal with it.

This morning I woke up stiff but feeling better than Saturday and Sunday. So I’m confident I’m healing blah blah blah. I do an hour commute to work. Actually it is 45 minutes but you add crazy drivers, accidents, traffic in general and rain; its closer to 1 hour.

I stop at Safeway before going to work; I get out of the car and ohmylord pain sliding down my quad. I stretch out, I walk, I feel better. WTH LOL So its not my kidneys, kidneys don’t send pain down your quad right? Its a hip flexor muscle. I’m not hip and I ain’t flexible so I need to work on that.  Think hip and flexible. LOL

If its not one thing its another. My new normal.

Pinterest Panic Attack


I had like a little time to kill because I did not want to start something new and it was almost time to clock out.  So I was Pinterest-ing, pinning pinning pinning and I clicked up in the corner. I noticed I had 2 accounts. Vague memory of one of them till I looked at it and there was no pins no nothing, just my name. Oh, it was when I first started  and for some reason – usually cause I couldn’t figure it out so I just started a new one.

Anyway I was thinking oh I can just deactivate it right? Wrong. Well yeah you can, but in my case – I do not know WTH I did because I must have clicked what I wasn’t suppose to click because I was totally deactivated, nowhere to be found.

I kind of panicked. My first thought was, Ohshit my funeral pictures! LOL Retarded I know. Let me explain; you know how Pinterest lets you have 4 SECRET boards, it’s not really secret it’s just not public. No one can see it unless you add a person specifically. So its just me and my kids.  Well I have a BOARD of selfies – or pictures of just me and I told my kids – those are my funeral pictures. 🙂  They said I was morbid but its a good idea. LOL So thats why I had a brief panic anxiety attack.

Anyway I had to leave work, pick up grandkid, run errands THEN when I got home I told myself no Netflix till you find your funeral pictures. LOL (gawd I crack myself up) Anyway I figured out how to deactivate the deactivation and I am good to go now.

I did not realize I have 3,446 followers. Hey I could make money on this right? Wrong 🙂  Well I probably could but I’d have to jump thru a bunch of hoops and I’m not it a jumping mood right now. LOL But I do to need to learn how to milk it, cause I need revenue.

If you are ever Pinteresting around look for: OH Linda – that be my Boards.

1e8c7538d54a67ddf1a4f3c1740c7f1b

I like to think my Boards are diverse and interesting. Learn something new everyday.  I always think no need to add anymore boards, then I see a topic or picture and yeah, it deserves a board.

Pinterest is a public kind of place, in a free for all sense; so it creeped me out when some woman “told me” – I was being blocked because I pinned more then 10 of her pins. WAIT WHAT? My thought was – how do you police who, what, when & how much a pinner pins? The way I see it Pinterest is an open “scrapbook” virtual that it is. But IF YOU put something out there in Virtual Scrapbook land it is open to be pinned so if you don’t want it pinned off, don’t put it out there or put it in a locked board. You know what I mean?

Like being blocked is a bad thing, geezelouise; get a life. I pin because I like the picture or information. I always think I have it on a board then I know where to come look for that information or whatever. Mostly I just like looking at pictures.

Speaking of pictures I have a naked man board, ok not really; just semi nude. No pendelum swinging or anything LOL – (gawd I crack myself up) – search for -Eye Candy- I thought there was suppose to be no nudity and stuff like that on Pinterest. Excuse me, there is tits and ass all over the place. Where’s the Prude Patrol when you need them?

Every now and then I get a comment on items I’ve pinned. Dear commenter: I have no idea, I just pinned it cause I like the picture. I am not the originator so I am clueless. 🙂  Oh BTW I never answer comments. I am not there to  be social with someone or have a discussion on an item. I just wanna look at pictures and read inspirational stuff, ok?

I have one board entitled “What’s wrong with this caption?” Well if you don’t know I can’t tell you.  One person sure got on to me, I think it was her picture thats why? She wanted to know what was wrong with the caption – she did not see anything wrong. I didn’t tell her but I will tell you guys LOL – There is a difference between hula and tahitian dance, especially the customing. Tahitian is not hula and vice versa.  There is a difference between Native beadwork and African beadwork,  Native is Native and African is African, yes they may look similar but its a cultural thing, just cause it looks like it doesn’t make it that.

OH an I found this “clip” a youtube thing – which is totally disrepectful and  just plainass wrong.  It is labelled Hawaiian Wedding Song (hula dance)  – When in reality it is Arianna Tseu performing her kahiko at Merrie Monarch and some smart ass – put it too the Hawaiian Wedding Song. Hewa. So wrong.  And another one has a powwow dancer and it is labeled Hopi Kachina dancer.  For one it is obviously a powwow dancer and not even close to a Kachina dancer. The girl might be a Hopi but she was not a Kachina dancer.

f9d3db80b68748bb7830fdfebb102987

I think I pin most every day. There are alot of good ideas on Pinterest. It’s also a go to place for recipies.  Not that I’ve been cooking or anyting, but if and when I do I search Pinterest.

Happy pinning to all who pin.

That Feeling


I felt like cleaning and minimalist-ing and so I logged on to write LOL What does that say; cause you know once you are on the computer, one click leads to another. Stay away from Netflix. 🙂

I always have these feelings of I think I will do this and hmmmm end up doing something else or doing not what I was thinking of feeling of doing. I do whatever the hell I want, when I know I should be doing household chores. heeheehee… I’m doing laundry, that counts right.

So I have attention deficit disorder, its either that or I’m lazy or I’m not motivated and frankly I don’t give a shit. LOL It will get done when it gets done.

3 HRS Later:

As I was writing because I wasn’t cleaning, I got asked if I wanted to go to lunch. HELL yeah! So I went and I’m back…. now where was I? 🙂

I have stuff to throw away. Every weekend for the past 2 months or more; I’ve been telling myself I will clean a certain catch all  area.  I’ve yet to attempt it, but I think today OR tomorrow MIGHT be that day.  Time will tell…

I will now leave and attempt to clean something. I was thinking of my sewing machine area. More distraction of fabric. I always start sewing something I had no intention of sewing.  AADD for sure.

Hoarder Tendencies Wannabe Minimalist


In my heart I am a minimalist.  In reality I think I  have hoarder tendencies.  Okay, I have hoarder tendencies.  Why else would I have a  stack of old ID’s that I can’t get rid of.  If you deal it real fast its like a cartoon reel of my face going fat skinny fat skinny. Okay, skinny, fat, fatter.

I have too much stuff. How many T-shirts does one need?  We’re not even going to talk about fabric and fabric scraps.  I’m going to make something with it someday.  Good luck with that.

Clearing up space, getting rid of stuff will open up my life to better ways. Right? Right, or so I’ve read – over & over again. 🙂

Everything should be in its place and there should be place for everything. But when you  have more  things” then place ahhhh its a mess. I always realize this when I’m looking for “something.”

You know you are a hot mess, when its faster to go to the store to get  an item; use it then 10 minutes later find the original item you knew you had.

I’d like to think I’ve improved but  who am I kidding. LOL

Procrastinating


verb (used without object), pro·cras·ti·nat·ed, pro·cras·ti·nat·ing.
  1. to defer action; delay:to procrastinate until an opportunity is lost.

 

I do this daily WTH; bad habit, putting off stuff…..

I have this perpetual virtual list running in my mind…. need to do this, that, and thisnthat and and and….  And I do everything else. I need to get my rear in gear. Swear to Gawd…..

I think that’s one of the reasons why I write in here, so I have an excuse not to do what I’m suppose to be doing. Instead I’m writing…..  It’ll just take 5 minutes…

Along with procrastinating, I lie to myself alot. Thats ok though cause nobody knows it but me. LOL At least I know. Now if I was lying to myself and did not know? Houston we have a problem. LOL

So I know I procrastinate and lie to myself; so HELLO SELF – suck it up and lets gitterdone. 🙂

Ok I am off to NOT procrastinate and lie. Life is that simple, why do I make it harder on myself? Especially since whatever I’m putting off, I need to do anyway and will do anyway so why not do it NOW and be done with it? Because…… MENTO? Excuses, excuses – stop it!

Need to do work!

Today’s Random Thoughts


Is it Friday yet? LOL Short weeks feel long to me. Although if it was a regular everyday four day week, all the time; I’d be fine with that. 🙂

How is burning your shoes you’ve all ready paid for a boycott or protest or whatever the hell its called.  You are loosing  your own money. The shoe company already made their money remember you paid for it. It is now your shoes now not theirs, so YOU are loosing money not them. Just saying….  You did not think this through did you?  How about you don’t buy their products at all, that would be a boycott ain’t it?

I don’t think Nike gives a ratass if you burn your shoes or not. They got your money. What do they care about what you do with it. Like they keep tabs on you and what you do with your shoes. All this burning shoes business just give them more free advertising. You think you have that much influence in the world or on social media that the masses are going to follow your lead?

You know if you don’t want your Nike’s – give it away to someone who needs it and will put it to good use. Goodwill, Savers, Salvation Army, homeless shelter, or a family member,  your neighbor maybe.  Better yet, recoup your money and yard sale it! Can you say Ebay?

Y’all pay hundreds of dollars for shoes and you burn it because ……. do you even know why? Because that man kneeled? Whose brilliant idea was it to burn shoes in the first place?  Burning rubber, plastic, whatever shoes are made; isn’t that bad for the environment? Sounds toxic.

OH and socks! How is cutting up YOUR good pair of NIKE socks even relevant to whatever the hell you are protesting. Now that it’s posted on Facebook, everybody & their Grandma will jump on the bandwagon and post burning shoes and cut up socks pics & video. Ok maybe not Grandma cause she got more sense than alla’y’all; she will yard sale them suckers.  Good socks, what!   Wait, she is going to keep and use them, winter is on its way.

I’m thinking only certain models of Nike shoes are being incinerated. If you are a true Nike aficionado and burned a pair of shoes; I bet you have a mint condition pair still in the box in your closet.  So y’all just need to stop it and quit being a fool on Facebook.

🙂
