My middle daughter went and got herself hitched up and married a few years ago with a guy from Louisiana. It was unexpected and ended up badly after only a few months. They had moved down to Louisiana to be close to his work and his family and it was a real pain to have to go down after driving for 16 hours and retrieve her and all of her belongings when things went sour. He was a drunk and a druggie who liked to abuse her emotionally and physically and we just couldn’t have that. Besides she was newly pregnant and we didn’t want our first grandchild to be brought up in that type of environment.
We got her back home, she lost the baby and life went on. Last week she got something in the mail which told her about the Louisiana divorce settlement that is in progress which is being handled by the Gallagher Law Firm in Louisiana . It was an emotional moment but it has to be done and over with at some point. There is no time like the present, as the saying goes. It will be nice for her to be free and clear of this guy once and for all. She ended up losing the baby, but sometimes things happen for a reason.
For a company that is all most one hundred and fifty years old Tissot watches are still high fashion accessories at an affordable price. I received a list of Tissot watches that my sisters and I need to all review and decide together on before the month of May roles around. Our mother has made up this list for us to check out as a present to her mother, our grandmother. She will be celebrating her 75th birthday and has been dropping hints that she wanted a new watch!
Doing this whole process has been made easier by using the Internet, with emails and Facebook, hopefully we can all come to the same conclusion and agree without having to all get together some where at some appointed time. We are all so busy with life and work, getting together gets harder and harder to accomplish.
We went shopping at Sam’s and I took a few minutes to look at all their HDTVs that are on display. They have a huge display of all their TVs and electronics at the front of the store – they are the first thing you see when you walk in.
The TVs are nice – they are big and yet with a flat screen they don’t take up as much room as the old ones. I do like the intensity of the colors, but without an old TV set up next to the new ones, I can’t really tell how much better these TVs are supposed to be.
I couldn’t tell you what guitar tailpieces are used for, but I can say that they are not as expensive as I first feared. My kid sister is turning 30 in the middle of March and she let it be known that there were a couple of items that she would love to receive as gifts and a guitar tailpiece was one of those choices. It didn’t take long to find some good prices on all kinds of accessories for guitars, free shipping is always appealing for my online shopping. If it isn’t free, the shipping and handling can break you. Something that most of us have found out the hard (and expensive) way.
It’s crazy that she is turning 30. This whole thing is making me feel old. Being the big sister can have it’s advantages growing up and well into adult hood, actually. But the older we get, it really bites!
I felt so stupid when my sister was telling me that was looking into hotel deals near Kelowna. I’m like “Where the heck is Kelowna?” Her reply was “In British Columbia, you silly woman” which didn’t help me out one bit, since I was clueless as to know even where British Columbia was. I’m sorry but I never really got into the whole Canada thing back in high school when we were learning where other countries were located. Seriously, if it hadn’t been for me playing the game of RISK with my brothers and sisters as a kid, I wouldn’t even know where Russia or New Zealand are, much less Australia and Madagascar.
I think that I will start looking for a good sized map of the world to tack up on the wall so that when I want to know where a country is that I can just go and look on the map. It can’t be too large, nor should it be so small that there won’t be much detailed information for a “at a glance” moment when I want to find out where something is.
I know that I can go online and find out the same information, but you never know how my laptop is going to be working lately as well as getting a decent Internet connection since we had to change Internet providers a couple months ago. I am not a happy camper with the service that we are receiving, all in the name of trying to cut back on some of our monthly bills. It is unfortunate that most of the time you get what you pay for.
