Dad, My Handy Man

At some point I will take the time and look for some new exterior shutters for the place. Each time my parents come over my father points out what a difference a pair of exterior shutters would make for the front of the house. He has even offered to look around for and with me when I’m ready to commit, so that would be cool.

My father has always been handy around the house and the yard, so any time he wants to give me a hand around the place, I’m all for it!

Games For Girls

It wasn’t too awfully long ago that one would have a hard time finding games that targeted the girls that spend a good amount of time playing games online. But there has been a big push to get more games out there and I’m glad to see that it is working.

My 12 year old daughter enjoys all types of games, but there are times that she really wants to enjoy being a young girl, and doing girlie things, so I’m glad that she found a site that is all about  Girl Games at Easygirlgames.com.  She tells me that they are pretty easy, fun and that they have a wide range of games for girls spend their free time checking out. She is getting too old for toys, but still a bit young for boys and still spends most of her time at home, rather than running the roads or hanging at the mall with her friends. So gaming is a good way for her to spend some of her free time.

Tattoos

More and more as I go throughout my daily chores and errands, I see a lot more people with tattoos! Honestly, I don’t understand the popularity of them at all. Most of the people that I know that have had tattoos for a long time tell me that they wish that they had never gotten them. The tattoos have faded, or run, and don’t look good anymore. And a lot of times people have been discriminated against because of the tattoos that they have gotten.

Although I have seen a lot of really pretty, nice looking tattoos, I think that it is a mistake to get them, it costs a lot to have them removed and that procedure hurts a lot more than getting the tattoo in the first place.

Memories of Beauty Pageant Contests

I spent the afternoon cleaning out my closet. After I got the clothing situation under control, I just had to do something about all the shoes that used to be so organized, but has turned into one big pile of smelly footwear that just gets on my last nerve, so I took control over that real quick like and moved onto the shelves that I had so much crap crammed on that I’m surprised they hadn’t fallen down from it all.

I found a box, way in the back of the top shelve that I haven’t seen in so many years. It has the home made crown and banner from my oldest daughter’s first beauty pageant that she was in. The youngest age bracket for that pageant was for 3 and 4 year old girls, my daughter turned 3 only 2 days before the actual pageant so she just barely was old enough and was the youngest contestant by far in the entire pageant. We video taped it and I wish that I had put that video tape in the box along with the other mementos from that wonderful day. She did so well and actually came in and blew the other toddlers away, many of which had all ready been in pageant contest and came home with the largest and prettiest crown of the day.

I still have the little sailor suit and hat that my mother purchased for her to wear, but some how the pageant fancy dress has disappeared throughout the years, it cost me $48, a lot of money back then for a new mother to come up with at that time, but it was worth every penny of it and at least we have the video to watch and enjoy for many years to come.

 

 

 

Clocks, Clocks & More Clocks

My oldest niece is a dolphin fan. She wants to go to college and become a marine biologist and I think that she can do what it takes to make that dream come true. She gets good grades, has a great attitude and is all in all a real good kid. She has a birthday coming up and I want to get her something that she will like and appreciate, so I’ve been looking around at dolphin related products and found a really nice dolphin wall clock that I think would look good in her room, it is only $58.77 from 1-800-4clocks.com.

They have a huge selection of clocks to choose from at 1-800-4clocks dot com, grandfather clocks, grandmother clocks, wall clocks, mantel clocks, atomic clocks, old antique and new clocks as well. It was fun looking through them all last night. I saw many that brought back memories from my childhood. My grandparents had the most wonderful mantel clock that I’ll never forget and wish that it had been left to me, but alas one of my cousins beat me to it, sigh…….

I have to tell you that they also have the most wonderful blog on this site as well. I don’t usually spend too much time reading companies blogs but I found the most interesting post there titled “Clocks White House History Throughout Time” that I would encourage anyone to take a few minutes and read. With the White House in the spotlight so much these days, I’m surprised that I hadn’t heard about all the clocks that have graced the White House’s walls and mantels, it really is an interesting read.
