stuff in my head

For some strange reason I started back to reading the newspaper for several reason the main reason is I would be following a story to see it fully resolved and the newspaper would stop reporting on it. One time I actually call the newspaper to get the final story. That is incredibly frustrating.

Another reason is it not unbiased reporting. I just hate that.

So this will be short lived I am sure because the only thing I enjoy about the newspaper at this time are the cartoon, puzzles and style pages.


The migraines have made a come back. I don’t know why they returned but I know I cannot wait for them to leave.

The migraines of earlier years were absolutely wicked. Blurred vision, inability to think straight, no tolerance of loud noises, no tolerance to any sounds, loss of time with pain in my head to boot. During this time in my life I felt like I was totally out of it . It was amazing that I was about to do my job at the bank and not make any mistakes and was often called upon to correct other people mistakes.

I have an appointment to go to the doctor and see if we can get this under control.


I am making it a goal to education children about money and finances. You can never be too young to learn to save move and to have a hand in your finances. I don’t want to education them to become rich. I can teach what I have not done for myself. But to teach them how to handle money wisely enough to live comfortably.

This is something that is not taught it is a trial and error learning process. Well in some family it is but now is the time to stop that way of thinking.

Just imagine how much better off anyone of us would be if we did not have to learn by trial and error. If we were taught to not be “I WANT IT NOW!” Instant gratification that credit card enable us causes us to purchase with out thinking. I see it, I want it, credit card enables me to get it. Right now!

In the Pittsburgh tribune-review the money section had an article entitled Piggyback on piggy banks Raising children to be savvy savers is financial self-defense for parents.

Instead of saying this is the guide to teaching your children about money he gives his experiences with his children and his attempt to each them about money. In the opening part of the article he states his reason for teaching his children about money is that they are his legacy, so he wants them to thrive, and remember him fondly. He wants them to be competentn contented managers of their money, so they don’t spend their lives agonizing over their finances and become dogged by foolish mistakes.

I kept the article and plan to share it with my family so they and try to understand the important of teaching our children the skills to thrive. $$$$$

I need Therapy

It's important to take time for yourself and I am one for telling others to do that for themselves but often i do not do this for myself.   I find that I am surrounded by people who need me to do things for them.  Nothing major things that they can do themselves but it is easier to get someone else to do it and i am that someone else.  Gail do this, gail do that.  Good grief!
There are times when I feel like I am just living my life.   Just making it  day after day, one day blends into the next one.  Don't really see accomplishments, advancements, forward movements. As a result i an feel a bit lost and out of sorts.  I feel the need for therapy. I have a bujo and in it i have schedule and routine for everyone and thing with the exception of me.  I discovered this when i took a moment to review the schedules and routines to figure out  why i was not getting any sewing projects completed, no practice time for watercolors and the crocheting and needlework was sitting in a  corner.…

Life in a Scheduling Room

It has been some time since I felt it necessary to say anything about my job.  However this is something that i need to address at this time.  My work associates range in ages and this diversity helps our department funtion in an ackward yet somewhat effective way.  One coworker who is very verbal about everything that goes wrong.  You know when she is not well because she is quiet and there are times when she is very focus on what she is doing and if that concentration is broken so is her silence.  For the most part this does not bother me except when she takes me out of my zone and then my work rhythm is interrupted.   I am sure i am guilty of doing the same to her i think everyone does.  Then there is next coworker a beautiful young lady that gives the impression of being younger than she actually is and so I have a tendency to feel like  need  to protect her.  That is something I had to stop doing it was not needed and i hope I did not offend her.  Her method working is not as pr…

Beyond Mesaure

My mother taught me to sew my clothes because I was bigger then the average girl.  Please note the word I used was bigger not taller.  This is what I heard from family and friends " wow you are getting big"  At the age of 11 or 12  big means fat not tall.  
When looking at picture of myself at that young age when I was getting bigger it turns out I was quite slim. My Uncle called my lean bean, because I was long and lankey. He was the only one who go the measurment correct and described me in a way that I preferred to big. 
Before going into High School I stood 5 feet 8 inches tall and when I graduated high schooL I grew another .75 inches taller.  I tell people I am 5 foot 9 inches tall.  I love being tall  I am not a fan of being big. 
My sister stands 5 foot4 inches tall and she remembers as she was growing being told she was big.  I guess my family does not use pharses like " my how you have grown" and instead use phrases such as  "Wow you are getting big!…
