Jewelry Making Supplies

My Gosh it’s been 2:30 forever. I know you are not supposed to watch water boil or watch the clock when waiting for quitting time, but I keep hoping at least the time will pass 2:30.

It always seems to get stuck at that time.

America the land of opportunity. Yes it is…….. The opportunity to work your self to death.
Why do we work so hard 5 days a week only to have two days off at the end of that week?
Something is wrong with the math. Why don’t we work hard 2 days a week to enjoy 5 glorious days off?

I am just really really finally getting tired of getting up early each morning, only to stand
In front of my closet trying to figure out what I am going to wear to work that day.

And then while at work, sit and wonder what I am going to make for dinner that night.

And for years people have been crossing our borders for just this same reason.

I guess I am getting old and crabby, but I really don’t see the point of working so much for so little.

Jewelry Making Supplies

This is one of my latest creations. Its a smoky Quartz necklace with a toggle front closure.

Cars and More Cars

My life every evening is like a Marx Brothers movie.
After dinner my husband Asks the kids”
What time do you have school?”,
“What time do you work tomorrow?”
“When you coming home etc?”.

That is the determination of whose car goes first, second, 12th or last.
I can’t believe just how many cars fit into the driveway?
It’s ridiculous.
There are 4 or 5 cars running in the street
while my husband pulls them in according to each one’s schedule.
One time a cop was out there writing a ticket for two cars.
My husband yelled “I am moving cars!”

Now the police in our city know that at 10:00 pm
there is the great CAR SWITCH.

It’s crazy.

When I was a kid, we had one car.
My Dad took it to work.
If my Mom wanted it she had to drive him to the train station
so he could take the train downtown.
We as teenagers never thought of having our own car.

I didn’t even get my drivers license till I was married.

on any given night
our driveway
looks like a used car lot.
