When my printer’s auto-feed mechanism that lets me scan/fax/copy multiple pages of paper broke down a few weeks ago I was really very upset. The printer that I had was a very expensive printer that I had managed to get on sale for a great price and there was no way I was going to be able to replace it with anything nearly as good. So I decided to try finding a website that would have a good price on a wholesale printer that I could afford.
I was actually on the verge of ordering a new printer when I decided to call the company that manufactured the broken printer that I owned. I asked them if there was an authorized repair shop anywhere near where I live. That is when they informed me that my printer had an extended warranty on it and that they would send me a brand new printer! I was ecstatic! I hated the thought of having to spend any money on another printer right now – I have other things that I need to spend my money on right now!
It is most interesting to me that my aunt and uncle are looking into retiring and heading south in the next few years and are seriously considering Orchid Island Golf and Beach Club at Vero Beach’s in Florida as their final landing spot. You see my aunt and uncle have been very vocal over the years about various friends and family relocating to gated communities all across the country. My uncle’s main grip is that he feels that residents get a false sense of security while living behind the gates and or walls that keep the properties in the community protected.
My uncle comes from the “old school” brimming over with Irish blood this one is. Most of us have all learned that it is pointless to argue with him and the older he gets the more stubborn and argumentative he becomes. Of course there are some folks that seem to enjoy just egging him on and thoroughly enjoy a good debate now and then. Myself, I tend to just kick back and be a good listener, while keeping a smile on my face, my chin up and looking him straight in the eye.
It will be so different once they really do relocate. They have lived in that same house since they were married and I can’t imagine anyone else living in there as well as not seeing them on all the family get-togethers throughout the year. Although these get together will be a lot more on the mellow side than in the past without my Irish uncle around to stir things up.
I have always enjoyed seeing the nice wood armouries that different people have their bedrooms and guest rooms. I’ve seen some real sweet jewelry armouries online recently that I’ve been contemplating purchasing. You can get some nice deals online these days. I look for free shipping (both ways of course) and other incentives for online shoppers, discount codes and coupons are always welcomed.
Researching your purchase online is a whole lot faster and easier and takes a lot of the guess and leg work out of the task. My mother took me to the local Sam’s Club last week, she has been a member with them for a long time and I always enjoy going with her looking at all of their great deals. They had some armouries that we were seriously looking at together, checking out the different sizes, the different pretty shades of wood and prices. I never really realized all the different types that they have out these days.
Now that I’ve seen some up close and personal like I feel better about looking online to find the best deal or possibly going back to Sam’s with my mother. One way or another I’m going to own a nice looking wooden armouries of my very own, especially since my mother intends to pass her’s down to my older sister to be kept in the family.
It really all boils down to what you get used to. I remember an interview that I attended way back in they day. This manager during this initial interview was all about how we are all “Creatures of Habit” and “It’s All In Who You Know and Who You Are Related To” both are very good points and things that we could discuss until the end of time and still have plenty to say about.
I got that job and this manager was really the best manager that I have ever had the pleasure to work for and along side of. I remember how upset I was after only working there for one year that he was being transferred and a new guy was coming in. It went down hill from there, but I still in touch with some of the good folks that I worked there with and from what I hear this particular manager is still employed with them and is doing just fine and I always send my regards with the people that are still in touch with him after all these years. I would love to be able to use him as a reference in any future employment searches.
Twill Cover for Body Pillow
And yes I am most definitely am a creature of habit and I worry sometimes how I would survive if a disaster of a magnificent magnitude occurred, since I have become so dependent of so many things for my comfort and enjoyment on a daily and nightly basis for most of my life. The one thing that comes right to mind is my pillow, if it isn’t my pillow then I don’t get the sleep I need. I really should have bought two of them at the time, if I had only known! And if I don’t have one of my body pillows (thank goodness I have three of them and am always looking for new ones to try) I fear that I would be up all night and that wouldn’t be healthy for me or anyone else around me!
I can’t believe that I let such a pile build up in my bedroom of junk, like old newspapers, magazines, the local Yellow Pages, old expired coupons and the like. I’m glad though that I do recycle and that all of these are paper products that can be recycled when I go into the part of town that has the recycling containers for the residences of this county to use. I wish that it wasn’t so far away and wasn’t on the side of town that is out-of-the-way for the majority of people to take advantage of. It is most unfortunate but most folks are still not participating in any type of recycling efforts at home or at work, and if you don’t make it easy for them then they just aren’t going to do a darned thing.
These days if I want to do local search for someone or some place all I have to do is go online to sites like local.com and I can find the local restaurants, pet stores, shoe stores, auto repair, etc with just a few clicks on my keyboard, so who needs the paper version of the phone book these days. Of course if you are still in the dark ages and don’t have Internet access you would still rely on the paper version, I just hope that when you are done with them that you would have the common sense and the decency to recycle them, just like I’m planning on doing. We all need to do what we can in order to be a “green” as possible these days and recycling is a big part of becoming “green” in today’s crazy world.
