Packages, Boxes and Bags






I was just thinking....






  • I am overjoyed that Green Bay LOST this weekend! The Pats undefeated regular season record (tying Miami's historic undefeated season) still stands. But here's the thing, some say Green Bay wanted to lose, to take the pressure off the team as they chase the ultimate goal; back to back Superbowl championships. I got to thinking about our guy Bill Belechick when the Pats were on their 2007 historic run to an undefeated season. Never was there any talk about strategic losing. Never. Belechick and the Pats just continued winning and winning big. And they ALMOST did it and won it all. They might have peaked early that season, but they continued to beat teams. And ya, I know they lost to the Giants in the Super Bowl. You need not remind me.




  • I had my best day ever at The Candy Bar yesterday. Let's just say that as a retailer, I am very encouraged.




  • Where is that missing 20 month old toddler from Waterville, Maine? My heart is heavy and my throat has a huge lump in it every time I think of the Polly Klass' and the Jaycee Dugard's of the world and what potentially happened to this child. It really makes me question why is there such evil in this world.




  • Speaking of evil, on Sunday afternoon there was yet ANOTHER attempted break in in my small town and a teen was home alone at the time. Good thing the kid did not answer the door and called police immediately. This is the 5th attempted break in this month. In a personal email to make us aware of the incident, sent out yesterday to the student body of this town by the parent of the child, "This was a frightening experience" was how it was described.




  • Five more shopping days left and I still haven't got my parents anything. HELP! I also have more than a few things to $till buy and I'm going $hopping all day tomorrow. I should have just taken Heff's advice and just bought Christmas on Amazon. Brilliant idea! One click and you're done.




  • Merry merry....have a song in your heart and a spring in your step. It's Christmas.

Big packages that have to be big in order to fill huge boxes that without said package being huge would have to be stuffed with a ham and have the bone pulled out or just stuff the package and bag in the hugh box. Merry Christmas, I love you Candice. BT

Heff said...

Yeah. What HE said, lol !!!

Heff did have some amazing advice!
Also, just so you know and because I'm an anal freak (quiet, Heff) - it's lose and losing. Loosing is like, loosening the belt after a big meal. :)
I hate shopping for my mom, in particular. 1) she needs nothing, 2) I can't ever give her a gift worthy of her. Well, at least I can't afford to BUY her a gift worthy of her. :)
Don't get me started on missing people...

Heff said...

Sybil, can I AT LEAST SAY "You're my NEW best friend." ???? LMAO !!!

Did someone say "backdoor?"

AK-I'm not quite sure I understand your comment, but I'm very sure I don't want to understand. BUT Merry Christmas to you too...

Heff-Ummm,again, I don't want to know.

Sybil-Yup, my bad. I am so pressed for time these days I didn't even spell check or edit. Thanks girl, you're keeping me honest.

Heff-Sybil had you at anal...

AK-shhhh, the big kids are talking. (Bama, is that you?)

Ever think about giving your parents cosmetics? Man that would save trip to the store.
