Al Bundy, Retail Hero?

Posted 09-17-2010 at 09:20 AM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

As some of you know I have been working in some sort of retail position for the last 13 years, and now that we are entering the shopping season you start to see the people looking for certain things. Most of these people are really great and are really happy talking with you and sharing their holiday plans and actually like to hear what you have to say and use their please and thank you's.
Then some people are the type of people who are absolute bears and nothing you do is good enough for them and you are just a "speed bump" in their way and they don't want to deal with you but they ask you a question and expect you to drop everything the second they ask even when you are helping other people first.
I know from my experience you have to "kill them with kindness" but sometimes that isn't good enough, and when they leave, I sometimes leave the floor and go to the back or freezer and just take out my frustrations by letting out a torrent of expletives, of...

Quotes From A Two Year Old.

Posted 09-16-2010 at 10:11 PM by xmas365 (Christmas, Life, and Family)

My boy LC has really started talking quite a bit lately, he just seems to have put it in overdrive since his brother has gone to school. His brother always seemed to talk for him and he never had a reason to say much, even to the point where we couldn't understand what LC was saying we would ask JP and he knows exactly what he said. We thought LC was a late talker considering, his brother was talking by nine months, and was saying complete sentences by 13 months. LC was not saying more than 3 words as late as December 2009 when he was 21 months old, his doctor wasn't concerned he would just say the second child always takes longer, but we were still nervous. After Christmas last year the words started flowing and he was doing a good job practicing his words, through the winter, spring, and summer he learned more and more words and sentences and lately has started asking questions. Which brings me to the point of this entry, the things that have come out of his mouth are sometimes hilarious....

Utopian Dreams

What would happen if one day every human creature on Earth woke up without hatred in their souls ? What would happen if ALL political parties stopped calling each other names and making accusations ? What would happen if we stopped noticing what is different about one another like race, creed, religion, sexual prefrerence, etc., and just related to one another as fellow humans ?? What would happen if we all started working together for our Country, for the Earth, for each other in order to make all the wonderful changes we could make ?? What would happen if we really DID love one another as the Master said we should, if our common purpose in life were to help each other along through life instead of thinking ME, ME, ME all the time and fighting each other ?? What if there were no more abused, tortured, abandoned children and animals ?? What if we took care of our senior citizens with the respect, love and kindness they deserve ??

These are but utopian thoughts, I know that....

Angels Of MMC

This past Sunday, September 12, was my birthday. I know some of you remember from a previous blog I had written that I was very sad. I really did not have many good expectations for that day. I was thankfully surprised. I logged on to work that morning and on a break decided to check the forums of MMC. WOW. That is all I can say. I went to the Christmas Countdown thread and there Maureen had started a thread called "Happy Birthday Caninemom3". That in and of itself started tears rolling down my cheeks. To think that someone I have never met thought it was important to recognize my birthday was more than I could bear. As I clicked on the thread there were already several birthday wishes for me. Needles to say I was quite weepy in a good way throughout that day. Every time I looked, there were more and more birthday wishes from the members here on MMC. You are all SO AMAZING !!

Because of all of you, my sadness turned into hopefulness. Because of all of you I felt...

Who Can We Look Up To?

Watching the world today is just a window into selfishness I wish my children couldn't see. The world is so me, me, me, I worry about who my kids have to look up to as there heroes and role models. I know as a parent the perfect role model would be my wife and I but if you look through the eyes of a child they see the football player, the movie star, Optimus Prime. When I was growing up I had my role models, and most were baseball players, and hockey players. The first one I remember was Jim Rice of the Boston Red Sox, he was my favorite player when I was a little kid, I couldn't wait to see him hit, and I finally got to see him play in person in 1987 at 12 years old at Fenway Park against the Baltimore Orioles the first ball that was hit to him he injured his knee and that was that. My father told me stories about how strong Jim Rice was, and how he went into the stands and picked up a kid that got a foul ball off the temple and ran him through the Red Sox locker room, years later I heard...
