Ouch, Ouch, Ouch. Did I happen to say ouch? Well just in case I didn't then OUCH!!! We loaded the moving truck yesterday with our possessions. It was like 92 degrees here but the heat index was supposed to be like 104 degrees. But that was not up inside this moving truck I actually think it had to be at least 125 degrees in there or more. I have never been so hot in all my life. There were a couple of times I actually didn't think I was going to make it. If it had not been for our daughters and a friend of Joys who showed up and saved the day. I think I just might still be laying out there in that truck or the garage. I know I don't say it enough to my daughters but I do love and appreciate you both. More than you will ever know. But I am getting ready to go downstairs now and so I will leave you with just one word. OUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I mean business

Jill has always wanted to have her own business in the catering business. I keep telling her to go for it as A woman she might really stand a good chance with some of the business grants which are available.

I really think that she would be great running her own catering business. She is an well organized person. Not to mention being a very good cook. She has a lot of options when it comes to business grants. She can check out the local and federal government grants which are available to people.

When you are looking for grants you have to really be careful of getting scammed. She needs the service of the great online resource for business grans which is managed by the National Institute of Business Grants. She will need to learn to be patient because it is not a fast process. She is like me patience is not the easiest thing for her to do. Business grants are intended to help people go into business for the very first time. I really believe she can do this and try to give her all the encouragement I can.

Say what?

Your Pilgrim Name Is:

Constance Doughty

A pilgrim is a wanderer with purpose.

What's Your Pilgrim Name?

I am not sure I understand where that name came from. But it does make me think of Thanksgiving which is coming sooner than I would like to think. I do look forward to a good turkey dinner though.

"D" Day

Tomorrow is going to be "D" day for us. This is the day that we load all of our stuff on a truck bound for PA. I know I keep posting about this. But you have no idea how glad I will be to have this day over. I have checked the weather and the temperature is supposed to be about 92 and the heat index is supposed to be about 102 degrees. Oh my gosh can you say melt down. Then later in the week the temps are supposed to be in the 70's now why couldn't that cooler weather come earlier in the week? Guess just not meant to be. Although I am glad about one thing and that is we are not under the threat of a hurricane. That would be really bad.

Show them off

I have always heard that if you wait a bit any style in clothing will repeat itself. I remember during my younger days I had and wore many sexy mini skirts. It now seems that the mini skirt craze is returning. One of the great things about mini skirts is that you can wear just about any kind of shoe with a really cute skirt. You can just about go from that cute pair of tennis shoes in your closet all the way to that pair of really high heal shoes you found.

Nothing makes a girl feel more like a girlie girl though that some sexy lingerie under that also very sexy mini skirt. A mini skirt if accessorized correctly can go from the office right to a night out on the town. All you have to do is change perhaps your accessories and maybe a sexy pair of heals and off you go. From office to the nightclub.

I am a firm believer that if you have great legs then you should show them off. So for those of you who still have that great pair of legs then get you a sexy mini skirt and put on your sexy lingerie on under it and make yourself feel good about yourself.

Where is Fall???

Living in Florida you have to envy the Northern Folks. Right now there is snow up north and what do we have here in good ole Florida. Why yes, we have heat, heat and more heat. I am really hoping and keeping my fingers crossed that on Wednesday at least the humidity is just a tad bit lower. Right now at 10:30 in the morning the temp is only 83 that isn't bad you say. So what am I complaining about? Well the "Feels like" temperature is 93 degrees. So that is what I am complaining about. During the afternoon the "Feels like" temperature will be well above 100 degrees.

I am so excited to say I just won the Nobel Peace Prize. I really didn't have to do anything to win it. But hopefully in the future I will do something to earn it. You just never know. Maybe I will and maybe I won't.

Soaking wet

I know that there is a lot of problems lately in California with all of the wild fires they have been having. I am sure a lot of people are going to need to do something about water damage Orange County after all is said and done. I am aware that a lot of the time there is more damage done by putting out a house fire with water damage than the actual damage done by the fire itself. So it is really important that those poor people find a good company who can clean up the mess that they return home to.

Count Down

Well a week from tomorrow we will be loading all of our possessions on the truck which will take them to PA. There our friends and some help will unload everything and have it all in our apartment when we get there. I will need to unpack everything but that is something that I can take my time doing and not have to have it done all in a day. We arrive in PA on Saturday afternoon and I start working on Monday morning. I am very thankful for that.

Two, Four, Six, Eight!

Two, Four, Six, Eight Vote for Nate! I am so proud of my Grandson Nate. He has decided to throw his hat in the ring. (although he has no idea what that phrase means) But he has decided to run for the school position of Reporter. He knew he wanted to run for an office as soon as he heard they were going to have elections. But did not know what position he wanted to campaign for. So yesterday he came home from school and announced that he was campaigning for the "Reporter" position. I asked him why he chose that position instead of President, Vice-President, Secretary or Treasurer. His answer was there were less people running for the Reporter position. So for his age he figured his odds were better. So Jill (his Aunt Sue Sue) is his campaign manager and she and his Mom (Joy) are working on creating fliers to hand out and posters to put up in the school tomorrow afternoon. I say to Nate go dude you can do it. He also realizes that he might not get elected and seems ok with that option too. I am just proud of him for trying.

Take care of your body

I have been doing a lot of thinking lately about things I need to do to take care of myself. I hate to admit it but I am getting older now. But it does beat the alternative of being dead. I have also decided that part of the process of taking care of myself will be in the form of Herbal Nutrition.

I have been taking advantage of the internet a lot lately to research things that I want to take advantage of when we get to Pennsylvania. I have discovered Herbalife in my search and I am very happy to discover that I was able to do a search for the city we will be living in in Pennsylvania and there there are six distributors as close as nine miles from where we will be living. That is important to me. I did not want to find something here in Florida that I liked only to discover I could not find it anywhere in PA. But thankfully that will not be the case. All you have to do on the Herbalife International site is enter your city and state and in the blink of an eye you get a list of distributors in your area.

Their website is very user friendly and easy to navigate which is important for me. I want to use sites where I don't have to waste time figuring out how to navigate around the site. But with Herbalife International that is not an issue at all. So if you too like me are interested in taking better care of yourself then what are you waiting for? Get on over there and check it out.

Where is Fall

Last week we had a couple of fairly nice days here in Florida, at least weather wise. But they are saying that this week we should be back to summer like temperature and humidity. Have I ever said that I hate Florida? Well if I haven't then let me go on record as saying I hate Florida. I do not do hot weather very well. As a matter of fact I do not do hot weather at all. I only hope that in a little over a week we have some cool weather when we are to load our possessions on the truck that will take them to Pennsylvania. We are now in the countdown period of our move. I am anxious for the move let have some emotions about it. I do hate to leave our daughters and our 3 grandchildren. But we are all strong people and we will make the adjustments necessary in living miles apart.
