Pleasant Surprises

Don’t you just love pleasant surprises? I don’t know about you but the majority of the surprises than land in my lap are not very pleasant. I guess there is probably a slew of sayings about how we all have to embrace the hard times in order to enjoy the good times, blah, blah, blah…….

Anyway I am running a bit late for this whole Christmas/Holiday season. It will be December in less than a week and the clock is ticking. I’ve been doing the majority of my gift shopping online, getting some pretty deals and my list is getting a bit shorter, but not short enough to suite my taste.

The good surprise is the 2 shelf utility cart that I found at Musician’s Friend’s for way less than $100. I seriously thought that it would be more expensive and what’s even better is that is it free shipping! I love free!

The Big Dream

I’ve always dreamed of owning my own business but really the only thing I’ve ever been good at is dancing. I love moving my body and then it hit me – why don’t I open a dance studio where I teach kids the things I know? I’ve had my own place for about 2 years now and business is just wonderful.

I get to go to work every day knowing that I get to see some of my favorite kids and also get to dance my thoughts away. I have it all decked out with the best flooring and changing rooms and a good security system to protect all the AV equipment at night when I’m not there. I’m loving being a small business owner so far and if I just hang on another year or so I think I’ll be able to hire a couple more trainers as well! I never imagined being this successful and I know my family is almost as proud of me as I am of myself…and I really am!

There are a lot of great sayings concerning dance, but this is a new one that I saw on Facebook that really touched me enough to share it here on my personal blog.

I could be just dreaming

Am I Dreaming

The Jetsons

It’s funny how we have turned into a society that really takes their Movies and Television so seriously. I can’t imagine living life without a Television set, I mean I can’t even go to sleep at night without my TV on all night long. There are times that I think that I would have really enjoyed a life in another time, like back in the frontier days, or over in Asia in the days of the Shogun with their Ninjas and Samurais, but when it is all said and done I don’t know how I could even consider such a thing since I am totally spoiled with all of today’s technologies that we pretty much take for granted in our daily lives.

We have pretty much turned into what The Jetson’s (the old 1960’s cartoon show set in the future) portrayed us as being. It’s funny how often I find that show being referenced when technology is being discussed. If you were to watch one or two of the episodes of that show, I believe you would be surprised to see all of the similarities of things that we are now using or on the brink of using. It can really freak you out.

The Future, Our Past

I have always loved my TV. I’ve heard some good things about Netflix. I know a lot of people that subscribe to it and are ranting about all the movies that they get to see, when they want to see them. Guy Movies, Chick Flicks, Horror and Suspense Films, Action Films, Love Stories, you name it and you can find them on Netflix. I was kind of hoping that I would get a subscription for Christmas, but that didn’t happen and I can’t afford it myself right now, but that’s OK, there will always be good movies out there, no shortage there folks.

Frozen TV Dinners By Stouffer’s

I usually don’t like today’s TV dinners, although I guess they don’t really call them that any more do they? Anyway, I have tried just about all of the different brands that they stores around here carry and the only ones that I can tolerate are the one’s made by Stouffer’s.

There are times that I just don’t want to cook for what ever reason and it is so very fast and convenient to stick one of these babies in the microwave and chow down, as long as it is made by Stouffer’s.
