Hi everyone!! I so understand what you wrote of Pup. The place where I reside (an assisted-living facility) there are, indeed many caregivers and med techs who go above and beyond their duties, to help my neighbors. Yet, there are quite a few who are lazy! It's only after they're hired, do their industriousness or laziness shines through. This goes for their cruelty or kindness, too.

I once worked briefly for a place that if you spoke English only, you had to work the graveyard shift. They claimed that they hired what was in the neighborhood, and although there were mainly Latinos, there were also quite a few of us whites as well as Asians and blacks. I was the only white person on my shift. But to continue, there was this one young guy who was lazy, and once tried to blame me for something. He hadn't loaded a pallet of boxes correctly, and decided that since I was handy, that when he got yelled at for it, he would blame me. When the supervisor got after me, I truthfully told her that I hadn't loaded that pallet, it was the guy who blamed me for it. At that time my wages were $9.50/hr., and it turns out this guy got the job just so he could get the money, he didn't care about the work. He got kicked out immediately.
And I've had co-workers who could schmooze their way through anything, yet point to other--usually innocent--people, saying that they were at fault for thus and so. Some people know how to work the system for their own benefit, and the rest can take the fall for their mistakes.

DeeJay, I thought of you recently. I've been doing reviews for Amazon. In exchange for free or reduced price, I promise to leave an honest review. Most of the stuff I get is either free or just a dollar or two. I've gotten a digital bathroom scale, baby bibs, tub thermometer for baby, dog collar, dog training whistle and clicker, headphones, cheese grater, meat thermometer, car sunshade, solar charging device, converter plug for up to 6 devices, silicone molds, FitBit bands and birthday lighted balloons. I enjoy writing the reviews and either can use the stuff myself or give it to my kids to use. I thought it might be something you're interested in. I've probably gotten close to $300-500 worth of stuff.

Hmmm.... Sounds promising. Do you do book reviews only, or products as well? And where do I sign up? I'd like a decent digital camera, for starters....

You probably wouldn't get a digital camera. I did see one once, but it was scooped up by people who do thousands of reviews on Amazon. I'll send you the information via PM.

Sorry Shann, I didn't get anything written last week. I did think on it though, just nothing seemed to resolve itself. :roll:

I will see if I can Call something out of that dark scary place I call a brain. Maybe a sad poem.

Yoo-hoo anyone out there? Becky are you lurking about? You haven't played Word or answered my texts. I hope you're okay.

How's the call challenge coming, Pup? I've got nuttin'. :(

Jay, I haven't played Word with you lately either. I play with Seeman quite a bit and our old friend Bus Boss. One game is fairly evenly matched, but the other one, I mainly lose. I won't tell you which is which. :mrgreen:

I texted Leah a while ago, but have been meaning to catch up with her ago.

I often think of Kara too. I didn't even know she had a little girl. I bet Aiden is like 6. I missed my 6th anniversary at FW a couple of weeks ago. I always say I'll remember, but then it slips my mind. It was best decision ever.

Hey, Allison, how was Urbana? Did you go this year. I wish Q had. He didn't think he could afford it though, plus he does something with Duke basketball. I don't understand why people camp out in tents weeks before the game. I can't think of much that would incline me to sleep in a tent!

Not sure if I mentioned Q's girlfriend dumped him. He had a ring and was going to propose after he received her parent's blessings at Christmas, but then a big issue developed. He was really hurt, but is doing a bit better now. We almost flew down to NC, I was so worried. I'm glad I didn't because he needed to use his support systems there, but it was so hard.

So some of you know Amy has been in Maryland for a couple of moths. Before she heads back to WA, she's flying into Rochester and is spending 5 nights with me. I'm worried about corrupting her too much. Teehee. We are going to do a whole bunch of crafts. I'm looking forward to it.

Just don't wear her out while she is there.

As for the Challenge...... sorry. I had an idea of one with the calling of Samual, but..... I keep trying to push myself but nothing seems to come out. :(

So the snow ruined our plans. We don't have much here, but Baltimore and DC were hit pretty hard. My in-laws postponed their trip. Now Amy is coming Monday (assuming flights are back up) and staying until Friday. She already asked me if she could go sledding somewhere. With my tongue in my cheek, I said sure, I could even take her skiing. There's a couple of places within 20 minutes or so. I planned on her saying no. My hubby would have not been happy if I went swing cuz I'd probably break multiple bones and then he would be stuck watching three dogs!

I know what you mean, Pup, I get an idea for the challenge but nothing comes out. I thought about a frog having a new year's resolution like eating less dragonflies, but :?:

Shann, I'll start a game or you can or we'll have 2 games, :superhappy
What possessed Amy wanting to go sledding. I could only picture her killing her shoulder or neck.

Little birds need to fly now and then too, you know. Helps them to remember where to fly to... That or she has finally flipped her lid. In which case, Shann, we will have more company in the nut house. :mrgreen:

Turns out, it was in the 50s and no snow here for Amy to go sledding. She was hoping she'd get a picture of herself in the deep snow, but it wasn't more than 6 inches from the blizzard that dumped two feet in Baltimore. Usually the Buffalo area gets dumped on. I've enjoyed spending time with Amy and today she met M and her husband and held the cutest baby. Oh she is growing fast but kept us entertained,

I enjoy playing Word Jay, except when you beat me! I'm still missing you Becky and hope you enjoyed the snow. :brrr

Sorry. Just now saw this. Urbana was wonderful! In fact, my challenge entry last week for "call" was heavily influenced by Urbana. You can't go to Urbana without immediately thinking of missions when you hear the word "call."

I saw the picture of you and Amy on Facebook! I'm so glad you two are getting to meet each other.

Did you all see that I'm an aunt now??
