It’s Monday! That means, it’s time for a new recipe!
As a child it’s an easy day off school. As an adult it’s a horrible day off work and having to listen to another adult (the doctor).
I had the pleasure of having Pinkeye last Thursday. In the end they think it happened when I was trying to get an eyelash out of my eye and I scratched my eye. I went to the hospital with my eye so swelled I could hardly open it, but after sitting the ER room waiting for the doctor to look at my eye the swelling did go down. In the end I had to take last Thursday off and a week of eye drops.
It’s always a sad time when a family member passes. It’s also a time for reflection on memories and realizations. You realize life isn’t forever and you need to make something out of yours. Continue reading
I know I’ve been a little MIA over the past few months. Only blogging once every few weeks. I feel bad for doing that. Honestly I haven’t felt that I have anything worthwhile to blog about. Well nothing that is major anyways. My life has been pretty boring, all I’ve really been doing is working – and when I get a good day off I spend it with my boyfriend.
Work is still work. Still working toward that management thing, which means three weeks of training at another store. That is something that scares me, going to a different store with people I don’t know and having to be in “charge” of them. The highlight of all of that going on is the fact that I’ll have a hotel room for those three weeks. So it’s kind of like a vacation with work. haha. At the end of the training though, there’s another test. Yep, lots of tests to be a manager. In the end I’m hoping it’s all worth it. Continue reading
Last weekend my brother and I visited Ohio State Reformatory in Mansfield, Ohio.
Man people know the prison from films, mainly The Shawshank Redemption. I didn’t want to visit due to the movies that has used the building. I wanted to visit because I just like seeing old buildings in general. There’s just something I love about stepping into an old building, stepping back in time.
The tour we took was self guided. This meant we could take our time and look at things for as long as we wanted. There are arrows through the building that you just follow. The tour like this was great because I could take my time with pictures and not feel rushed to keep up with the group.
In total I think we spent around 2 hours (or more). There were other groups of people touring it too. The only downside is the kids.
Let me make something clear, I think taking kids (early teens and on) to tours and building like this is a great thing. Teaching them history through visiting a place will stick with them. Now that I said that, make sure you kids respect the other people there. The kids who were there were just running wild – seriously, they were running through the building. I found it very disrespectful to other people there as well as the building.
