The amount of trick-or-treaters that we get here has been dwindling in numbers each and every year, which is really depressing. I rather enjoy dressing up, decorating the house up and answering the door bell to hand out candy to all the neighborhood kids. This year we didn’t get a single trick-or-treater. We are being told that it was because of all of the extreme weather due to Hurricane Sandy. Guess we will find out for sure next year.
Someone left a door hanger bag on my front door this morning and the doors of all my neighbors. It has a little plastic tube with a blue cap and a flyer in the bag with instructions on how to take a water sample. I have no idea who this company is and why they want water from my kitchen sink. The flyer says it is not affiliated with the Government’s water department and that there is no charge for the test.
This makes me wonder if I should participate or if this is the first phase of a new scam? My suspicious nature tells me that uninvited offers should be ignored. And the little kid in me would love to put something, other than my water from my kitchen sink into their little plastic tube just to mess with them. I sure hope that doesn’t make me sound like a bad person, because I’m not.’m not wanting to put anything nasty in it, like urine or stuff like that, just maybe some white vinegar or some other clear liquid that I would have around the house. I just like playing practical jokes on people. April Fools Day is one of my favorite holidays!
This is going to be a crazy busy weekend with the family Easter dinner that I am helping my sister host over at her house. After work tomorrow I am heading straight over to her place to eat dinner and do a few things before hitting the sack nice and early in her guest room in order to get a good night’s rest before tackling the weekend tasks that I have been assigned and asked to do.
Sis is going to be doing most of the cooking while I tackle the cleaning and the decorating that is needed to be done by Sunday. I’m glad that the cheesecake that I ordered online arrived yesterday. That is the only food item that I have been asked to bring to contribute to the meal. Last year, the cheesecake that I ordered was a big hit, so I hope that this year it will be just as well received.
The family is scheduled to start arriving bright and early Easter morning, to start the Easter Egg Hunt that we always hold for all the kiddies each Easter. As the family grows bigger, we need to hide more eggs so everyone will have fun finding lots of candy.
It is being said to call the toll free number that I all ready have in my contact list on my cell phone, because as of sometime in the first week of March everyone’s cell phone number will go public, which means that we can expect to receive up to 25 various telemarketing calls a day, if you don’t call and place your number on the Do Not Call List. Every couple of years we hear that something has passed and to call this number, so I have never deleted these past couple years.
I wish that it was that easy to block and stop collection harassment for good with a phone call to a toll free number, but alas I don’t see that happening, ever. My brother-in-law, out in L.A. is seeking legal help to help stop collection harassment California style it has gotten so out of control for them.
I would not like to be the other person on the other end of any unwanted phone calls from him or anyone really. To spend the day really putting people in a bad mood would certainly put a damper on my mood and attitude.
My honey brought me roses for Valentines Day! That is my favorite flower! I love the way roses come in so many colors. I especially love the tiny pink “sweetheart roses.” They are so dainty and so perfect – it is like looking at a newborn baby’s tiny fingers and toes and marveling at how perfect Mother Nature can be!
