A cool spot during he summer heat, if only one could get too it, it is at the base of a dam 10 minutes from my house.
I must say it is frustrating to work all day and return to a quiet home only to be interrupted by neighbors awful music. Now I am not an old bitty, but I do like to come home to a once quiet neighborhood. I just love the fact that my walls rattle (a single family dwelling) and I can not hear my tv. The hubby gets up early, and these assholes think they are 15 and have to turn the base up….. GROW up people, I have had just about enough of it. Time for the authorities… lets see what happens….
After at least three phone calls to the sheriff last night, someone showed up, just after they turned it down and then off. It seems they know the exact time to turn it off, leading me to believe someone has a police scanner! Maybe they will get the hint.
The children are driven by racist and territorial beliefs it seems. A 4 and say 6 or 7 year old boy and a brother a bit older than that watched by a tween sister, seem to have claimed the street as their own. A Caucasian boy of the same age has been thrown off his bike and had his head bashed on the street, of course he was part of the problem as well, but at least he isn’t trying to be a mini gang leader. My child can’t play in the front yard because of the big headed little kids, bantering the other neighbor, nor can she play in the back at times because of their filth language and music. One might say go to the landlord… Yeah right, they are slum lords at best, alcoholics and bad parents themselves, and do not care what the tenants do as long as they pay. At one time this neighborhood was a valuable place with neighborhood BBQ’S, and no crime. One family moves in to a rental and we have bikes stolen, nails in tires, random filth walking up and down the street and don’t forget the Jersey shore wannabe gangster neighbors….. Does one sell or fight?
Today started out grim, after a disturbing phone call with bad news about my grandma…. ( a long story, one I will tell, as it is amazing, soon enough). I was finally able to get good news out of the situation, so that turned out.. for now! My friend, boss and training partner made my day by giving the sweetest thank you gift that was so very unexpected. I was not sure how to react, I am not used to big thank you’s, I think I am getting spoiled.
Isn’t it great to be able to change your day, from bad to good, so quickly. She really turned it around for me. I think that all people need is a kind gesture to make them smile and start their day out great. It would be so easy to wake up every morning and blurt out a compliment and to receive one as well. But usually we don’t. Technically life doesn’t always throw happy days or people our way, but when it does WOW ! Thank you Boss Lady!
Thank goodness for my change in attitude. My idiot neighbors reach every nerve ending with their idiotic, rude, disrespectful, wanna-be gangster, bad parenting, neighborhood ruining actions…. Thank you Boss Lady for I may have gotten into trouble today without you. I think I will introduce my neighbors to the blogging world very soon.. Spice the page up a bit!
Off for a yummy vegan style burger for dinner! (I love to eat meat.. but for today we are going for the plant proteins)
I ate 6 cookies today, gave myself a belly ache, but they were so damn good…. back to clean eating tomorrow after 6 more cookies!
On this happy Sunday morning as I have been enjoying coffee, and my protein shake (YUM), I have been reflecting on my training career, and what type of trainer and person I want to be. I think in the fitness world (no I know) being a trainer is a multi- dimensional position. One can not beat the sweat out of a person and then send them home without further instruction or words of advice and expect them to morph into a “A” student. There is more too it, more involvement and commitment. These people need a rock to lean on… maybe someone that is strong in mind body and spirit, and able to give them the knowledge they need, to feel confident in themselves as the emotions and sweat pour from them. Someone to keep them moving as they ache and fell like they are starving, and one to keep them away form the cookies as they have cravings…. cookies… who does not love cookies….. Wait a minute… I need this person too, I think we all do. I bet if we try really hard, we can find the person within ourselves. That’s it…. that is what I need to do… find myself, my confident, strong, compassionate, organized, healthy, loving self, and then share it…. Seems easy.. yeah right….
On another note: Family time today, we are making an awning to go over my babies pool to protect her precious skin form the sun! Today is goign to be a great day!
