A never-ending song

So my husband, who's in the advertising industry/media, always in on the look out for funny commercials.  He's got the silliest sense of humor, which sometimes cracks me up and other times - just has me rolling my eyes.

A couple days ago he came home, popped open his lap top, and giggled while typing in the youtube website address.  
"Kim, come here you've got to see this."

I sigh, knowing it's a gamble on wether it's worth it to pop over to view his latest find.
Here's what he found:

Okay, I admit it was kind of funny the first time I saw it.  It took me a couple of seconds to catch on.  BUT then he started on in his usual methodic mode by playing it again and again.  And because he was shaking hard and laughing loud, my son had to come see what all the commotion was about.

This is something that will go right over my son's head so I wasn't too worried.   Except now all I hear is this stupid 'mow the lawn' song around my house.  First because once my husband get's something 'he thinks' is funny in his head, he doesn't let it go until the horse is dead - and buried and then killed again.  And then my son will mimick his daddy, who he idolizes in every way.

We were driving home today, after a day of peace with no jingles interrupting our Easter when I hear this sweet little voice from the back seat.

"Hey mommy, you know what you need to do today?"
"What sweetie?"

You guessed it....the singing began, "Mow the lawn...mow the lawn.  Trim it cut it!"

My husband was laughing so hard he almost wrecked the car.  I am so ready for this commercial to fade away because now I have a feeling my son will be teaching his friends this song at school.  And if any of their parents are at all like my hubby, they'll be calling me to see what I'm teaching my child.

Undercover Boss Eye Opener

This past week I watched Undercover Boss, which featured Retro Fitness and one employee in particular, who got fired.  Normally Undercover Boss shows a few employees, with great stories and good work ethic, and sometimes there may be a few problem employees.

In this last issue, it seems all anyone is talking about is that one problem employee, named Jacqueline, who was a shining example of what bad attitudes are really about, and was about as bad as they come.

Jacqueline, who on the outside, seemed like a clean cut decent person until she opened her mouth to speak.  And this girl wasn't just rude ... she was abusive to everyone around her. 

As if it wasn't bad enough that she was completely unprofessional and had no compassion for anyone around her at work ... she then turned into the flippant, defensive, careless girl, who talked back to the CEO of the company when he tried to explain his grievances with her.  She passionately denied anything he was trying to explain to her, …

Brian Naranjo - A Celebrated Man

It's Saturday...

It's Saturday, and at this very moment a few hundred miles north of me, my friend is grieving the loss of her husband.

It's Saturday and this week has felt like an eternity.  I've moved through this week with such a heavy heart.

And I feel guilty for being trapped in this fog of sorrow, as I'm not the one who lost my life long partner of over 20 years. I'm not the one who just got my husband back from Afghanistan, only to lose him to an unexpected death.

I can not fathom how my friend is coping, walking step by step through the process of burying her soul mate at the tender young age of 39.

Brian Naranjo would have been 40 years old on February 29th, 2012. Brian Naranjo would have his whole life ahead of him.  He would have been celebrating a marquis year, when you're supposed to reflect on where you've come and what you have left to do. 

In reading his Facebook wall, as I'm inexplicably drawn to it, I've read the many memo…

No, Dude! I Really Don't Want to See That!

Yesterday was one for the books ... 
I was in a meeting with a sales manager at a car dealership, which was almost coming to a close when someone from the lobby alerted the manager that someone had driven up on the lot.  From the look on his face, I could tell that whoever this person was - was not exactly welcome.
He promptly apologized and excused himself so that he could deal with the person we'll call 'Dude'.  Within seconds I heard Dude and could tell that he was high maintenance from the commotion in the lobby.  He had not only shown up in a test drive truck but had a ton of his belongings inside and a trailer hitched to the back.
Patiently, I waited inside hoping that whatever went down wouldn't be a 'situation' as the energy felt in the dealership was a bit heightened.
A few minutes later, the manager returned to process a paperwork for Dude when Dude stepped into the inner office for a quick question.  I smelled him before I saw him as smoke rolled in…
