Funny how you remember things from way back when you hear or see something that jars these old memories. Like every time I go to pop a zit or brush my teeth I think of my mom’s best friend, Ms. Jinx, who did a whole lot of baby sitting with me. She used to have this huge closet filled with towels and sheets and tons of other toiletries, with a big box of tooth brushes that really intrigued me for some reason. Then later in my preteen years when I started having to deal with my face breaking out, she is the one that told me to put a hot, wet wash cloth on the zit which brings it to a head which makes it so much easier to pop.
Another thing that reminds me of Ms. Jinx is when I see one of those roller conveyors. She used to take us to the grocery store with us, I think it was a Safeway. This store had one of those carton flow racks that you would put your filled grocery bags on that would take them on the conveyor and roll them outside for you to pick up after you brought your car up to the door. It was the only store that ever had something like this and it just fascinated me. I always wanted to sit on that thing and ride it outside myself, which I’m sure tons of other kids wanted to do the same exact thing. Maybe that did happen and some one got hurt and that is why they eventually took the whole thing out and hired a bagger.
This past week has been a busy one for Judy (my BFF since 4th grade) and myself looking at various beauty salon equipment for her to purchase for her basement that she has been working so hard at turning into a beauty salon. She has always had a flair for doing hair, she gets it from her mother who has worked at a beauty salon most of her adult life. When ever I need something done to and/or for my hair, these are the only people that I will allow near my head of hair.
There are so many Beauty Salon Supplies available these days and going online is the best way to find just about everything that she needs in order to get her salon up and running by the end of the year. Right now we are focusing on beauty salon furniture that is much needed to make sure her customers are comfortable during the whole process. I had no idea how many varieties there are out there. I’m glad that I don’t have the final decision to make, being a Libra I have a hard time making decisions with most things. This would be torture for someone like me, but Judy is all ready and set to go forward and get her done!
Some times I like shopping and some times it is a real challenge. I have found that there are plenty of good deals on so many products online that it is usually the first place to look for a good amount of items. I found some great custom mattress deals earlier this morning. I have been trying to find the perfect mattress for my bed for a while now and I fear that if I don’t buy one soon that I will need to see my primary care doctor to get a good night’s sleep.
There are many varieties of mattresses on the market that it only makes sense to spend some time online finding out all the information needed to make an educated decision before handing out any of my hard earned money. These memory foam mattresses have had my attention for the last couple of years. I hear that they have new and improved ones out that I think I will go ahead and place my order for, come next payday. I really need a good nights sleep for a change.
I’m seeing more and more commercials for Online Schools on the TV, some nights it seems as if those are the only commercials playing. Man that drives me crazy when you see the same commercial over and over during one show and if you stay on that same channel long one could actually get a bit turned off of the product or service that is being advertised way too much for one’s own good.
I know that people are flocking to attend colleges and universities in an attempt to further their education in hopes of securing a good paying job, although it certainly isn’t guaranteed to, never has and never will I’m afraid. But in these trying and very uncertain economic times it is the best option for most. I’ve been giving thought to going back to school, and am leaning towards online degree programs in nursing since the need for people in the medical profession will always be there, no matter what or so I am told.
My brother just sent me the link to http://www.fafsa.ed.gov/ which is the link to a Free application For Federal Student Aid for me to check out to see if I can get some financial assistance since there is no way I could afford anything like this on my own and I’m sure my brother doesn’t want to have to loan me the money and this is his way of telling me so. Ha!
According to one of the blogs that I try and keep up with that is about what is going on down in the Outer Banks of North Carolina, the obx short sales are on the increase, which is good news for people that are possibly in the position of purchasing land and/or property in that part of North Carolina that I fell in love with from the first time I set eyes on the place back when I was 8 years old. My Great Aunt Pearl had a beach house down there that we were invited once a year to come down and stay at for a nice long week of fun in the sun and on the beach doing all the things that kids and families do when they have this type of opportunity come around.
I have always loved the water and have always dreamed of one day living on the water. I want to be able to walk out my door (front or back, that doesn’t much matter) and be able to feel the nice warm sand between my toes and walk right out into the water. I still have time to full fill that dream even if it ends up being the retirement home that I end up staying at later on in life. I just hope I still have my senses enough to enjoy it all.
