i got beautiful cards from Vikk Jo and Laurie


mine are on their way finally

the past 2 days have been very nasty weather....dark and rainy all day and colder than we have been in awhile. we all had a bug, and now Mom has it........took me 30 mins plus asking a pharmicist to find something safe for her to try....sheesh..they make stuff for kids, why cant they make an old people one, shhh.......dont tell her i said that LOL

Tom, we are taking Rob shopping to pick what he likes for his present, then will have lunch. its easier to do that than to buy something and he doesnt like it .......i do some stocking stuffers they dont know about, but for "real" gifts we just all go out together to shop............. He likes the clothes at American Eagle, so we would have no idea what to choose anyways, us being older, ha hah ha...........

dinner tonite was tacos and nachos, no biggie there........... i am getting bored with food again.......no ideas for meals...........

Hello ladies!

So want a good laugh?


back in 2006 or maybe 2007 Clint and I got into a huge argument in town, in public. Well someone called the cops
I had walked away and was crying, I had walked passed a lady jogging and she freaked out about crazy ppl needing to be locked up
well cop came and I sat on the curb chatting with him. but my high BP was really high. I ended up in the ER the Triage nurse asked me what BP meds I was on, NONE. they cause migraines,
she proceeded to tell me that by refusing to take the meds, I was basically committing suicide.
I said (which I regretted later) Fine I am suicidal but I WILL NOT take a pill that's gonna make me have something else that needs a pill
I ended up with a 72 hour hold.

Well back to 2012... Work Comp needed my Mental health history and that hospital has that I am Bipolar with a Personality Disorder.

I looked up Personality Disorder... unable to have a relationship , working with co workers is too hard and friendships are impossible!
LOL
They messed up that's Clint not me! I need people!!!!

now for today's vent

I was able to pay off our past past due Verizon bill a bit earlier than the plan was for.
I called Verizon to make a payment and to arrange a new payment plan, I was gonna go from $75 a week to a $95 payment now they don't like it they want more. I tried to explain I couldn't do any more.

Uff da!

Unhuman customer service I tell ya!

You would think since I was 3 months past due and now I am only 1 they'd work with me.

I talked with them about WHY is y bill so much $170 for just my cell phone and internet (which isn't even unlimited!) then another $30 to have Clint's phone.

FIL, Joe and Josh have phones too but they pay their part each month. But when I missed a weekly payment when my WC check was late, they shut the phones off and I had to pay $15 per line

then I was going over our minutes making appointments so that was costing me then MIL went over the minutes while FIL was having health issues.
SO I talked with Verizon and they said if I changed my plan to unlimited talk and text it would cost me $8. more a month they didn't tell me it was PER LINE

Internet is still not unlimited but it went up $30 so i could skype with MJ

well it turns out it wasn't me skyping that was putting me over, every page I load counts against me, when I lose connection and have to REFRESH and uploading cards hurts too!
So I went and got a Straight talk phone! WOW talk about a step down! LOL no qwerty keyboard! no memory card! Oh man!! LOL

today was one of those weird, warm yet gloomy drizzly days...makes you wanna stay in bed all day! or at least stay home in jammies!

the post office was so busy, i thought the lady working the counter was gonna cry when i asked her how she was doing! there were a few rude people in line.....thats uncalled for this time of year!!

except for stocking stuff for big Robert, i am finally done with the shopping. we stayed in our budget and only put one gift on the cc. it was a hoodie for his uncle, it was better to order and send right to him than to have it come here then remail!

i got Mom a small crockpot....it will be the next Christmas miracle if she actually uses it, lol...but i think i can convince her and i got her a giftcard to Lowes so she can get a few plants in the spring.

Caesar got his gift early, a new snuggle buddy. petsmart has these cute, big stuffed cats and dogs you can get for a $5 donation. i got him the cat, he has already napped and suckled on it, lol.......what a character!

and, i finally got some shoes.......i needed to get away from summer sandals! walmart had some nice ones in clearance for $7. isnt it sad to be excited over shoes, ha ha ha.............

OH....we had some excitement here yesterday....we have a neighbors boy who is nothing but trouble, in and out of jail......well i dont know all the details yet, but yetserday i heard sirens and thougth they sounded awful close...well they were.....3 sherrif cars and 2 city police were 2 doors down and the boy was on the ground in cuffs! looked like there had been quite struggle too. i am waiting to bump into our neighborhood go to gal for the full scoop, lol.....she was out there watching so i am sure she knows!

I can't get over Caeser and my friend Jackie's kitty snuggley with a stuffy!

That's just that cutest thing I ever heard! and the suckling too! Her's does that too!

Joker snuggled with a teddy bear for a while then he'd kill it! Now Spike and Cheyenne kill them before any snuggling can happen!

Hi Girls,

Nothing exciting happening over here. I have done all my Christmas shopping, thank goodness. The shops are mad at the moment. I have to get a few groceries to take away next week. Will probably go out and get them all early tomorrow morning.
Browny has finished work for the year. He tells me he goes back on the 2nd, but I think he means the 7th. Deaf as a post
Bug and a friend have taken my car and gone to visit another friend overnight. He only lives about 40 minutes away, but I imagine they were planning an all night x-box thingy. Bug took his swag, so it seems he was intending to sleep at some stage. He is home this evening in time to take my car to go to work. I do have the big car here if I need to go out, but I so hate driving it.
Anyways, I need to tidy the house up a bit before the electrician gets here. I have a small list of little jobs for him to do.

Well ladies I have received the text from Verizon "you must contact us within the next 24 hours"
So I will not be online for a while once they shut me down

I did borrow a Virgin Mobile Stick from Karla (the neighbors ex that was here with her child last summer)
I need to buy a $45 prepaid card for it then I am unlimited for 30 days! WooWhooo

Hi Girls,

well, i think we are ready for the big day!

we decided to go with making subs, a chip & dip assortment, assorted pickle/olive tray, sliced fresh veggies, sharp cheddar "stuffed" celery, 2 types of wings, and 2 dessert choices. "all" i have to do is slice stuff, set it all pretty on platters and bake the wings. i bought foil pans to bake them in for easy cleanup.........

we are having ham on Christmas eve, so no one wanted a big meal the next day, lol......

we'll eat at 2.

not sure where i want to go for my bday yet, maybe the OG, maybe my fav spot for mexican. i will def make a zip into michaels to check out the clearance stuff..........

Hi ladies.

Think we're ready for Christmas. Gonna have fried chicken, mashed potatoes, veggie, and a sweet to finish. not sure what yet. Don't have much time to decide. may even do garlic bread.

Holly, thanks for the card. Went to my old house, so I just got it from our son today. Beautifully done.

Everyone have a wonderful Christmas!!!!

Hi Girls,

We have had a lovely Christmas day The four of us went out for lunch. No mess and no leftovers. There was a huge selection of cold meats, salads, cooked meats, vegies and prawns and oysters.
We are all ready to go camping tomorrow. The trailer is packed and we just have to throw the fridges/eskies and our bags into the ute. I probably won't be online too much, but I will take photos.

Love to all and Merry Christmas

So with me not staying for Christmas day dinner, still no word from Mom. There was never any conversation in the past 6 months about dinner. So I guess she is still sulking. She is just not happy living in TN. My parent's had to move near a big city for health care and to be a bit closer to me in case they needed help. We are suppose to have dinner at Mom's Friday. She hasn't called or sent me e-mail about what time. So trying to decide if I should call or email. News just said her city is w/o power. This stress isn't good for my stomach or bp. If the world would have ended.......

Thank you for the cute bday card Barb!

My day was wonderful yesterday, the weather was pretty too. We had lunch at Ruby Tuesdays, ihad the lobster mac-n-cheese and their nummy grilled greenbeans. I used a coupon at michaels for a die I have been wanting., plus I got some clearance items and a magazine. Then we came home and just hung out, ordered pizza for a late dinner.

Today i organized our linen closet, medicine chest and our master closet., along with the usual chores. Dinner was porkchops and scallop potatoes.

Tomorrow I plan to organize the drawers I our coffee ans end tables and sort them out, too much junk, lol!

Hi ladies.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend. Have snow today, mostly blowing so probably won't stick. MIL is over for the weekend so having a very enjoyable time.

In case I'm not back on before then, everyone have a Happy New Year and celebrate safely!

Hi everyone!
Holly we were listening to the National Weather Service broadcast out of Alabama that night of the storms. Holy WOW did that sound scary. Tim is a huge weather geek, so we were following it pretty closely.

I hope you all had a nice Christmas. Ours was for the most part very nice. One or two little snags, but that's to be expected.

Work has been crazy as I am training the new girl for the past two months as well as running my stuff and prepping for year end. I come home so tired, and once I sit down, I fall asleep! These next three days will be very relaxing and totally card making for me. I have joined Barb's Thank You card swap (see the link in her siggy). Barb always has great swaps...you should sign up girls! Very nice cards to be had.

I need to get prepping for a shoebox swap that Barb and I are going to. It should be a really nice time. There are rules and restrictions so that we are sure to go home with nice cards.

Cheyenne has been doing well and is loving our snow that we finally got. The cold seems to be bringing her arthritis out a little bit more, but we keep walking twice a day. That seems to help a lot with her stiffness.

I apologize if I missed any of you with Christmas cards. Please know it was NOT intentional. I just was far less organized this year.

Happy New Year my cyber Sisters!!

We had a nice quiet nite at home and saw the new year in. Today we had rain so we just kinda hung around the house.

I made a run to Wendys for lunch and did a drive by to the dollar tree, they have gotten in the cutest storge bins and baskets, sooo, I may make a run later to get some to do some organizing, esp in the ta-ma-holly.

Not much else going on.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!

I want to tell you that I missed posting that Holly's birthday was December 27th. My card was very belated.

I hope we all have a happy, healthy & prosperous new year!

Good Morning.

Cold here again today. Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday. Ours was nice and quiet. Rang in the new year sound asleep.. LOL. I'm such a party-animal... .

Had MIL stay with us this past weekend and took her home on Monday. Going to have the girls this weekend. Hope to black out next weekend for some me time. May even try to organize my craft room/office as it is one of my 2013 goals. Still haven't found my mojo... think it left for a warmer climate... hope it comes back soon. Everyone have a great day!!!!

Hi Girls,

I am a back from holidays. We had a great time. The camping ground was a bit more crowded than we would have liked - there were supposed to be 40 sites, but there were many more people than that. But, the amenities were clean and the showers were always hot. The weather was hot, but was lovely down on the beach. We had a walk of about 150 metres to the water. We were at a saltwater lake. The water was knee deep for ages. Bug walked out so that we could hardly see him one day and the water was a bit ove rhis waist. The camper trailer went well. There are only a few things that we need to get or change. The solar worked fiarly well ecept that one of the fridges was being troublesome and never stopped running, so used more power than it should have.
I have almost caught up on the washing. Nearly all of the camping stuff is put away - there is a tub of kitchen stuff that needs to go back in the trailer. The christmas decorations are down and in a pile in the lounge room for me to put away. Both bathrooms are filthy and need a good clean and some new craft stuff arrived while I was away, so I have heaps to do.

I am yet to put my room back into any kind of craftable shape!
Even though I had MJ proofed my room, he still managed to reach a few things! LOL

Call me lazy or it's just depressed... My car broke down Christmas Eve, the water froze daily, but on new Years Eve (after getting the kids to the airport, thankfully)
The line burst, I shut off all the breakers, then turned them on 1 at a time till I figured out which was for the pump.

Somehow that made our furnace quit.
THere has to be a reset switch somewhere!

Well got that fixed on Friday.

Still no car, and no water, well we turn the breaker on and fill a few buckets at the hydrant quick and shut it back off. the line that broke is inside the floor, between the main line (we already replaced and put inside the house so it couldn't freeze) and where it connects then goes into the floor and runs to the bthrm and kitchen, Now I wait for Jay to come and make a shopping list, his ex gf Karla (the one that stayed her with us) to come pick up Clint and go get the stuff.

I had an appt with a Work Comp lawyer for tomorrow but had to cancel, Karla isn't working Monday but she is going to Cambridge (30 miles the other way to go shopping) I have an appt on Thursday for an EMG gotta find a ride for that yet.
I do not like waiting till the last second to hear from ppl if they can or not.

kind of erks me a bit...I have dropped everything when a neighbor has needed a ride, or help with something, but since I got hurt I have sure noticed how scarce they are.

1 is a beautician and I asked her if I could hire her to come wash my hair (when being in the car was so painful) ...... oh that wouldn't be right I should go to the salon.
i decided I'd rather get it done at Walmart for $5, 17 miles to town, then go to where she worked and get it done for $15...which I was gonna pay her to come to my house.
Yet she is one I've given a ride to work a gazillion times cuz hubby didn't put gas in the car.

Sorry....she pissed me off the other day again! Offered her gas money and lunch if she'd gimme a ride for the lawyer..she doesn't work on Monday's. Her excuse was she doesn't like to drive in Duluth. I told her I could drive. Oh well!

I know if any of our neighbors came asking Clint to help fix something, or unload some damned appliance he'd go, but they can't be bothered when we need help.

WOW! I really am in a bad mood.

Big hugs Vikki......

Well, everything was basically back to normal here today. Browny has gone off to work. Mitchell was here and sleeping on the lounge. Bug has been visiting his Dad and I pick him up from the airport this evening.
Today I got all my paperwork and filing up to date. Wonderful feeling!!
