I think that it was very strange that my neighbor offered to let me use her lawn mower all full of smiles then she came back the next morening very much in a bad mood!
I also thought it was strange that I am so tired of fb that I dislike some of the people on there now and dont care if i ever see them again.
I will really not miss some of those ” friends”. At least it was a painless way to see that these types are self centered and lack depth 2 days ago
strange that i keep waking up with that message.
it is kind of unspeakable and is the reason or the result and excuse I suppose for everything dumb or strange that i have ever done.
weird but true.
also weird today how tired i was, but after a sleep and strange dream like that, I would think a quiet day is in order.
my kids dont like staying home but we stayed home most of the day 5 days ago
STRANGE and Odd things…
That I had a funny feeling all day because the kids had to give a presentation.
the strange thing is that i know good things are coming.
this weekend we have nothing much planned, but I do want to go to Confession and have my sins forgiven.
the strange thing is that I dislike having to wait in line.
and they have it at 3 pm on a saturday.
so, that is the thing.
strange thing is how these ladies I know, they are all social and I am no good at that because I have to work and the kids have to do school work.
that we are always feeling behind.
so what huh?
we are lucky to be able to set our own pace.
we are not slaves to the school or work place.
we are working for ourselves. 1 week ago
since the kids got new instruments, they have been playing more alone.
not so much fun together in harmony or with me.
not sure if its just cuz of technique they were told to work on but…
it would be a calamity if they did not play harmony together again.
i mean, why would that be happening unless they were told not to practice together.
practice is one thing, playing is something else , practicing together for playing in little performances , that is good too.
weird how things go huh?
we can arrange to go play somewhere soon though.
art vs technique.
always the way it goes. 1 week ago
i really think it is strange that B and E call me.
the only 2 guys that call me are those guys.
strange because we have NOTHING really in common. 1 week ago
very strange that a woman who I thought would be a good friend has turned out to be so annoying mainly because she is so full of herself…
that she has to dominate every single place she is at.
that is just annoying.
I thought I could be friends with her and her entire family for years but the things that have happened , including a car accident…
and kids being very upset because of her kids being the same way as HER???
I feel that now my goal is to AVOID her completely .
My kids still kind of like her and it is too bad that I have friends at first, well, acquaintances, that I feel will be a nice part of our lives, then their lack of respect and their kids or relatives lack of respect for me,,.. my nature, our nature…
just starts to go downhill.
the strange thing is that I have so much that I have worked for, I cannot afford to let others take from me , be around me in a way that inhibits me from shining my light.
They cause me to feel unhappy.
Maybe I am more of a loner?
or just not a follower?
and prefer not to try to change anyone.
I do want to get along but it seems with certain people?
way too hard for me as a single mother who runs a business and home schools her kids.
I find it strange I NEVER meet anyone else like me.
but some day I will realize why perhaps.
I have to run a very tight ship. 1 week ago
what was strange was that I was nice to someone on the job and they gave me a bad review anyhow.
and also… that we woke up 15 mins before the ortho appt …
yet got there in plenty of time.
and that the dr appt was early and we got out of there in record time.
early feels better than late!
strange that people keep asking me that being catholic , what do people think of my job.
its very strange how people do not understand me and its kind of tiring to explain that I am honest and by you asking that, you are inferring that I am being dishonest?
i think i will not answer that person’s question after all 1 week ago
very strange that the people I Talk to , well, strangers and acquaintances, do not really like me or my stories.
I think it is strange because I think i am nice.
but i THINK i talk too much about myself.
So it is strange but good to know.
ALso it was strange that when we were with the horses all weekend, that we had not one bad mood.
horses are so awesome. 1 week ago
oh gee, the strange thing today was I feel that I have been so careful with money but then realize my cell phone bill is going to be 100 extra because my suspended ( LOST) phone got un suspended.
STRANGE that they just cannot take that off my bill but I accept it, my fault for not calling in sooner.
also very strange how people do not tell you things, they expect you to figure it out for yourself, which is good but in a dentist office and with kids wondering what is going on, it would be good to know.
strange how much i dislike having my life on a
“stage” on facebook.
Not ever been a group person and this proves it.
I tried and it does not make me happy.
some people must love living life ONLINE i guess huh? 2 weeks ago
That my brother J and M do not ever email me back when I reply to one of their group emails!
I guess I should not reply?
I find it strange that my mechanic is super good and nice but always forgets to order things.
I find it odd that I feel dread about reporting that thing, I feel that it is not my role in life to be a reporter.
I find it also strange that people love to PUSH me to do things. but I AM getting better at avoiding it.
I find it very odd that even though we are working harder at our goals , we have less fun.
Learning is fun but studying is also very hard work.
When does the FUN begin for music and horses and good weather at the rivers and lakes and mtns. that is what I AM talking about.
Doing art, feeling healthy, is it odd that I want that stuff?? 2 weeks ago
strange how certain kid that is usually talkative did not talk yesterday.
Oh well, ( at the stables)
strange that when horses get teeth pulled, they are sedated but still standing up!
strange that the people who call me on my job are so unfair to me when I am just trying to help them.
It is as if they take their whole day out on me… just because they can.
I have to pray and find a way through this so i Can earn more, and be respected and appreciated more.
ALl I do have control over is what i do GIVE .
so I ask God to help me know what to GIVE and…
how to care for myself at home and with my kids.
the ODD thing was hearing also that a runaway horse went down to the busiest street in town.
I hope it was okay. 2 weeks ago
TODAY IT WAS really strange how on the JOB I have been targeted( it seems) because people are bullies or have no one else to take things out on! I know I am not the only one who has that kind of job.
Things seem to be getting so much worse though.
so is that strange?
The strange thing is that people pay money to talk to me, then have the desire to defame me online.
I have a theory that so many people exist ONLINE only and so to do this , for them, is the equivalent of kicking the car, or the dog…
but instead they rate me poorly to get their abuse “Jollies”
I see it, does it hurt me or my business? probably hurts business.
How do I get around it>?
Not sure but I THINK I am going to find MORE ways to screen my clients. 2 weeks ago
today it was so strange that my card was declined but it was good that they answered the phone and saw why.
strange also that work has been SO slow! 2 weeks ago
I forgot to record a strange thing from Friday.
we went to the clinic cuz my daughters eye hurt.
they started the appt then disappeared for 30 mins while we were just in there, the air getting stuffy.
so i opened the door and asked anyone I could where ” she” went.
and… she had been stuck with a needle earlier so they had to deal with that but no explanation.
also very strange that my daughter took a vision test and her eyesight seems really blurry.
she could not really read the eye chart.
so i made appts for both of them to have eyes checked at the end of the month.
strange that we had not noticed it before!
we get busy and forgot that?
so good came of that.
also strange is that someone with loud motorbikes seems to have moved in close by…
strange that I had no idea the building housed an apt.
i thought it was just an office 2 weeks ago
I found it strange today that after Mass we decided to call and visit the ranch of someone we had met,...
we drove there because the website seemed as if it was very hotel like, open all the time type of thing.
well, we got there and the thing turned strange, the day did, because the owner told me some thoughts and feelings about the whole thing of the fund raising and how it was done that I apologised on behalf of someone else.
then we got through with all that,.
it was not that good anymore.
we had thought she was a good contact person and evidently no more due to the bad manners of someone else.
so then we went to just look at the horses in case we wanted a trail ride and the horses were not in good shape.
So my kids felt really worried and are not sure what our job is. we are going to ask their riding teacher.
i do not wish any further involvement with so many people!
I do want to keep life simple and keep going fwd.
I told my kids we have to ask someone and keep it anonymous.
I dont want to spread talk,
but want to find out what you do in cases like that.
I feel bad too…
my kids feel bad. 2 weeks ago
i find it quite strange that the kids teacher turned down a monthly Gig , they could make money.
I am thinking, I NEED MONEY for me and my kids and I am going to see if the store will allow us to play.
we need to think of a NAME.
I am going to ask God to help me with choosing a good name, the kids and I will choose the perfect name.
Approach the store and get the monthly gig .
as many months as we can do.
I STILL CANNOT BELIEVE the teacher turned it down.
she said, : “oh they might get tired of us” and I KNOW WHY she said that.
a lady , who is ANNOYING, said that. 2 weeks ago
the odd thing today was when I am on stage with the kids and their teacher, it seems that she does not want me there.
what is ODD is that I continue doing it.
also what is ODD is that I feel that I will IMPROVE in spite of being 53 and not having had many lessons!( guitar)
because i just feel it.
I have always wanted to play rhythm guitar!
and why not huh?
What is ODD is that i also LOVE to record us with my camera while we are playing, so I need to set up the camera in a better spot.
what is strange about it all is that I just KNOW that i am going to improve in spite of how it seems 2 weeks ago
the odd thing yesterday was that
when we were hiking… i started wheezing.
my daughter banged her knee on the logs that are placed on the shortcuts..
and the kids short cut actually made us end up at the wrong spot. I had to walk really far then to get the car and up hills alone to bring the car to the rest of the gang.
we forgot about the pump at the top that we all could have gotten water at and I think that was Odd so my kids did not get enough water since the other fam did not listen to my advice and bring their OWN water.
So all evening we were so dehydrated and sometimes its hard to remember that is why you feel tired and drained.
that is ODD too 3 weeks ago

Which is generally a long lived spider, not very venomous, but their bite is very painful indeed. 2 months ago
There I was minding my own business, drivign back from a meetings. At Fountains Circel, I suddenly spotted an ENORMOUS spider on my dirver’s side external rear view mirror.
I started shaking and all I could think of tto do was to phone my business partner and tell her.
I then devised a plan to go to DH’s business premises so that he could remove the spider from the mirror. But the spider suddenly got agitated and crawled across the mirror, then onto the window, right near my face. I was barrelling down the highway, one eye on the spider and only half an eye on the busy highway, screaming all the while.
Finally, the HUGE spider decided to move again but this time the wind caught it and it blew off the window. 2 months ago

Johannesburg – A Kempton Park bookkeeper has been bitten on the face by a Mozambican spitting cobra while sleeping at a lodge in North West, it was reported on Tuesday.
A severe pain in his left eye woke Werner Bronkhorst, 25, at the Pilanesberg Game Reserve at the weekend. He heard a hissing noise and realised it was a snake, Beeld reported.
“You instinctively know it’s a snake. I felt it bite me again, on the eye, and I grabbed it and threw it to one side. I felt blood running down my face,” he told the newspaper.
He ran for help, pausing only to grab a packet of cigarettes, “because I knew I was going to need them”.
According to Bronkhorst, the snake also went after a water bottle and an empty cigarette box lying on the floor next to the bed.
“That snake wasn’t right,” he said.
According to Beeld, rangers captured the reptile and released it into the park.
Bronkhorst was admitted to the Ferncrest Hospital, in Rustenburg, where he was reportedly in a stable condition.
Professor Graham Alexander, a snake expert at the University of the Witwatersrand, said he suspected that Bronkhorst might have rolled onto the snake in his sleep, and frightened the animal.
“Snakes don’t just attack,” he said.

Dog ‘saved life’ of missing Polish girl Firefighters said the animal stayed with the child throughout the night
Firefighters in Poland say a small dog probably saved the life of a three-year-old who went missing from her home overnight in freezing temperatures.
The child, Julia, vanished on Friday and was found lying in marshes several kilometres from her house on Saturday morning, with the dog by her side.
She is now in hospital in western Poland, suffering from frostbite after temperatures fell to -5C (23F).
Firefighter Grzegorz Szymanski said the dog kept the child warm enough to live.
“For the whole night the animal was with the girl, it never left her. Remember, it was 5 degrees below zero and the child was wet,” he said, adding that the animal was the most important factor in the girl’s survival.
More than 200 people had searched for the child overnight. It is thought she spent hours wandering through the forest near her home in the village of Pierzwin.
Julia was found lying in marshland
Her parents had last seen the three-year-old playing in the backyard with the small black mongrel.
She was eventually discovered by firefighters after she was heard crying for her mother. 2 months ago

Pietermaritzburg – Precision flying by an army helicopter pilot helped save a man’s life after he was bitten by a puff adder while camping in the Drakensberg on Wednesday night.
Harro Tonsing, 57, is in a stable condition at St Anne’s Hospital in Pietermaritzburg. The correct reactions by his friends laid the foundation for his rescue after he was bitten on the foot while hiking in the uKhahlamba/Drakensberg Park.
“He is stable and doing well at the moment. He is under specialised care and receiving treatment,” said hospital spokesperson Shubnum Ismail.
After Tonsing was bitten, members in the group he was hiking with alerted the rangers of Ezemvelo KZN Wildlife. The rangers called the Mountain Club’s search and rescue team to assist about 16:30, just as the afternoon’s storm clouds started to form.
Rescue convener Gavin Raubenheimer said the mountain club then put together a combined rescue team with an Emergency Medical Rescue Services (EMRS) paramedic and three mountain club members. The team flew from Pietermaritzburg Airport by helicopter and arrived at 20:00, necessitating a difficult and dangerous night hoisting operation in a deep, closed-out valley at 2 300m altitude.
The mountaineers and paramedic were lowered near the cave in which Tonsing sheltered, and got him ready for a fast flight to Pietermaritzburg.
Raubenheimer praised the pilot, who had to dodge thunderstorms in both directions of the flight. “It was a successful operation which involved skilled flying by the SA Airforce.”
- The website sareptiles.co.za warns people who are bitten by puff adders to first move the snake away with a stick; then to call for help; and then to keep the bite victim as still as possible. Helpers must not cut or incise the bite, nor try suck the venom out.
Puff adder venom causes severe pain, swellings, haemorrhages and nausea. Death is caused by secondary effects, like kidney failure. When the patient does not die, body tissue usually dies around the bite mark.
