LIVING LOW-TECH…

in a high-tech. world!!! Aaahhhhhh!!! I admit it, folks!!! My mind is STILL wired to function in today’s world utilizing yesterday’s methods/techniques. :/ OUCH!!! I was, pleasantly, reminded of this while shopping with my daughter for last-minute Halloween deals/necessities during late morning on Sat., 10/31/15. Come along folks…it is time for another trip to “JILL’S WORLD”. READY??? SET??? Let us go, Go, GO…

HA!!! Danielle “wanted” a cougar top to complete her Halloween costume this year. She was a cougar last year, as well. AND…the year before…:/ But, that’s okay, folks!!! She’s 18!!! She changes the costume a bit every year to go out with her friends. SOOOoooooo…we decided to “race” over shopping…QUICK. 1st stop…Walmart Supercenter. WHAT A MAD-HOUSE!!! THERE WERE LAST-MINUTE SHOPPERS…EVERYWHERE!!! Plus…the regular weekly shoppers!!! UGH!!! So many people…out-and-about…”SHOPPING”!!! No cougar shirts there…that Danielle “liked,” anyways!!! Onward…

We then “raced” over to our local JC Penney Dept. store. I must admit that I was, secretly, getting “upset” with Danielle. She was NOT even looking around at the clothes in the store to “HELP” find what we were looking for!!! Aaahhhhhh!!! SHE WAS ON HER [STUPID] I-PHONE!!! WHAT???!!!???!!!???!!! “I”…was getting a bit upset with her…UNTIL…our shopping trip was interrupted by “MISSION: SAVING LITTLE JIMMY”. WHEW!!! MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!! WOO-WHOOOOOO!!! SUCCESS!!! Now…back to being upset with Danielle…UNTIL she informed me that we could get the shirt she wanted right down the street at Target!!! OUCH!!! I then understood…Danielle had been “shopping” on-line as I raced around looking through clothing racks like a “CRAZY” older mom on a “shopping” mission for her child!!! Yep, all frustration was gone…IMMEDIATELY…as I delighted in my daughter’s awareness of how to utilize today’s high-tech gadgets to “HELP” her low-tech mom. :/ “THANKS, Danielle.” I must admit I was so thankful to have our “CRAZY” shopping excursion reduced to just an hour-and-a-half!!! DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!! And…I guess that [STUPID] I-phone of yours is actually pretty SMART…after all!!! 😉

I’m just a low-tech mom…living in a high-tech world!!! BUT, I am “learning,” folks!!! LIVING AND LEARNING…SLOWLY!!! YEP, STILL “TURTLE SLOW…BUT TURTLE STEADY” @ numberoneteam.net!!! I WILL FINISH THE RACE…AS A WINNER!!!

GO TEAM!!! WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!

I feel certain our flash mob dance “HELPED” to seal our 1st place rating!!! DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!

Approximately 13 therapists were able to participate in this year’s “TEAM” effort. A few practice sessions were held. Only 1 or 2 therapists knew the routine… “WELL”. The rest of us???…???…???… moved like monsters trying to do flash mob “dance” moves to Michael Jackson’s “THRILLER”. Now, “THIS”…was so very, Very, VERY fun!!! AND…WE WON!!! WOO-WHOOOOOO!!! We Won, WE WON!!! DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!

SAVING LITTLE “JIMMY,”

the baby gecko!!! WOO-WHOOOOOO!!! Danielle and I were shopping for Halloween, last-minute, “deals” in our local JC Penney store when I looked low-to-behold a teeny-tiny, baby gecko running across the white-colored tile flooring. Aaahhhhhh!!! I said to my “SELF”: “SELF, you MUST at least try to catch and save this little baby gecko,(I named him Jimmy) before he dies within the walls of this department store!!! BAM!!! I stooped or squatted-down…RIGHT in the middle of of an isle dividing womens’ athletic and casual dress clothes!!! DOUBLE BAM, BAM!!! I scooped him RIGHT up and began racing for the exit…with little “Jimmy” cradled between both hands. “I”…was on a mission, folks!!! MISSION: “SAVING LITTLE JIMMY!!!”

I heard Danielle’s sandals scuffling behind me on the tile floor as we ran toward an exit and then she excitedly stated, “Let me see him,” in her oddly familiar manner of “ASKING” me to do something by “TELLING” me to do it…in a questioning tone. :/ You know what I mean??? SO…I stopped to show her this little baby gecko, “Jimmy,” I had just captured in the store. Aaahhhhhh…Yep,”Jimmy”…jumped out of my hand onto the brownish colored carpet of a clothing section!!! It took me a second to locate him and then…2 attempts before snatching him up again during this impromptu mission: “Saving Little Jimmy”.

“Got him,” I shouted!!! And we resumed racing toward the back exit of the store!!! I am certain we looked…???…???…??? “suspicious,” but…I WAS ON A MISSION…racing through that store with Little Jimmy cupped between both hands. I looked at nobody while running through this store and said NOTHING…PERIOD!!! UNTIL…we approached the back exit where there were two cashiers and a customer we raced directly toward on our way out the exit. I quickly shouted: “WE’RE SAVING A BABY GECKO!!!” I am certain I heard one cashier holler, “SAVE THE GECKO!!!” as we raced by. 😉

Danielle raced ahead of me to open the door and we “sprinted” across the parking lot over to a grassy area where we let him go, thereby…”SAVING LITTLE JIMMY”. Jimmy was a baby gecko, alright. A teeny-tiny, itty-bitty, little fella. WOO-WHOOOOOO!!! “SAVING LITTLE JIMMY!!!” MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!!! DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!!

GO TEAM JIMMY!!! WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!

P.H.G., folks. People Helping Geckos. :/

WITNESSING…

the growth and development of different “TEAMS” to which I belong has been AMAZING…ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!! “I”…am NOT kidding, folks!!! From marriage, to family, to friends, to neighbors, etc., etc., etc. Hhhmmm…think, Think, THINK…

We are ALL changing throughout our Journeys from “Here to There,” folks. EVERY single one of us. We may experience numerous changes, such as physical, emotional, psychological and/or spiritual…to name but a few. WHEW!!! Now, I can remember blogging about various situations that caused difficulties between teammates…in the past. Well…where ARE all those DIFFICULTIES in daily “LIFE” for me to blog about “NOW”??? THERE ARE SURELY DIFFICULTIES, RIGHT??? Am I changing??? Are teammates changing??? Are “THINGS” actually better OR are similar “DIFFICULTIES” being viewed differently??? Hhhmmm…”THIS” is B-I-G, folks!!!

I am specifically thinking of my co-workers right now. “TEAM BLUE” (the Rehab. Dept.) at MCNRC. We have ALWAYS been a tightly knit “TEAM” of Rehab. professionals, but our “TEAM” has undergone some pretty tremendous growing pains… TOGETHER!!! Yep, we have been through many of the same or similar ups and downs experienced by other “TEAMS”. “TEAM BLUE,” has changed for the better…over time. WOO-WHOOOOOO!!! “WE,” somehow, seem…???…???…??…”CLOSER” these days. DOUBLE WOO-WHOOOOOO, WOO-WHOOOOOO!!! ALL GLORY BE TO GOD!!! AMEN.

We talk together. We laugh together. We cry together. We pray together.

We pray for each other. We pray for patients. We pray for our community. We pray for America. We pray for the world. We pray. We pray. We pray. PRAYER IS POWERFUL, folks!!!

GO TEAM BLUE (@ MCNRC)!!! WE’RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER!!!
