okay it's cold this morning! I tried so hard to NOT get out from under the covers.. Cheyenne came in and told me I had to. She is so funny, she doesn't bark at me till I start talking back, but she "arrr arrr roo' LOL and wiggles her entire body..remember she is black lab and Boxer..she is so tall Joker can walk under her
But she stand next to me looks right at my face and 'talks'
I ask her "really?' and she gets a little louder and more words, I drag this out as long as I can till Clint tells us to go away! LOL

Ya know Clint had named her Cayenne like the Pepper, cuz she is red, When did her name become Cheyenne? LOL I should ask him what happened to that.

That got me confused. I was thinking that Laurie was at Vikki's. Copy cats)

Not much to do today at all. No washing, no cleaning - just a little bit of ironing. Bug came home last night with all his clothes clean except for the pj's he had on the previous night. I really like his Dad's partner. They have been living together for 3 years or so, so she's not new. I have heard from others that she gets a bit interesting when she drinks, but man, she sends home clean clothes!!!!!

My last Christmas present arrived in the mail yesterday. Browny lashed out and bought something from the states, which is big for him. We love watching Duck Dynasty on TV. If you haven't see it you need to. A bunch of rednecks who have made it big by selling duck calls. A modern day, real life Beverly Hillbillies. I am now the proud owner of a hot pink Duck Commander T-shirt.

Corn meat and all the trimmings for dinner tonight. I feel like I haven't cooked properly since Christmas. First we were camping and then it was only Browny and I or just me. We have also been trying to master our new Weber Q, so Browny has been cooking a bit.

I have seen the show too.

Some of the antics remind me of neighbors. I always say I am a highly educated hillbilly compared to my neighbors! LOL

Well the stuff is here now for replacing the waterlines. Just hope jay comes back to day to work on it.
Clint can't bend over, hell he has gotten so big he can't even see his feet unless he lays on his back and puts his legs up then he is so winded you'd think he ran a marathon

The doctor has asked him to cut back on his Mountain Dew intake...he doesn't eat food, but he is now over 350 pounds

I make aa supper 1 burger and he's full and feeds part of it to the dog.




Oh Kerriann that woman is a shocker! My Ex new wife wouldn't even give the kids baths when they were little, even if they were there for a week i the summer, they'd go over to his mom's house and she would make them take 1.

coming home with clean laundry HUGE PLUS!!!!


off to go upload a card well actually 2

Haven't seen it yet. I often wonder how much is put on too Dawn. I think that a fair bit of it is staged, but they aren't really acting.

Hi girls

we are in for a stinker of a day today. They are predicting in the low 40's which is about 110 for you, I think.

I have very little to do today. I am going to take some books back to the library and get some more. I have a bit of stuff to tidy in the spare room left over from camping. So, I think I will set Mitchell's new GPS up and my new digital picture frame. I will also organise some photos and put some on a card to get printed for some scrap pages. Things I never have time for.

Next week, when the hot weather is supposed to be over I am getting Bug into the garden to do some tidying up.

Vikki - Clint has got big. Browny was up to about 310 at one stage. Clint has a bit of height on him I suppose.

Off to check FB and start my day....

Hi ladies!

Can we stop the world so I can get off for a few days? Seems like my life is just getting busier and busier lately... Calgon take me away...

Not sure when I'll be popping back in...

Vikki, sure hope you get the pipes fixed soon and also your vehicle... so frustrating especially when 'friends' you help won't help you.

Vikki Jo,

i hope tings are getting fixed for you! good grief, when it rain it pours! big hugs ((((HUGS)))

that worries me about Clint.......weight gain with lack of appetite does not sound like mountain dew related! plus the weight gain is his belly.........have they tested his thyroid or for diabetes???? could it be his meds???? i hope they really check it out for him!


That is too cute with Cheyenne, they are so baby like arent they! i love when furbabies "talk".....way too cute

Vikki Jo, please try to get Clint to have other testing as Holly suggested. We lost John's brother to thyroid cancer in November. Less than a week after it was officially diagnosed as far as we knew...

He is 6'6" a whole foot taller than me! LOL

Got a new car yay! new monthly payment YUCK!

Water still not working.

Raining ice water today. YUCK

Had EMG today, get results Feb 12th

I talked to my boss today and he still says I would not be efficiant to have back there unless my arm is normal again

Well..I do not have my Verizon internet any more, I now have a Virgin Mobil thingy and it SUCKS...it is slowly than dial up I think! LOL


I can not load galleries, I can't go on SU website either...hopefully I get a better signal when it's stops raining!

Could someone please read the back side of their SAB brochure and tell me wha tit says... my dumb butt cut it up and glued the pages down in a notebook with notes and forgot to even read it!
I know with a $150 order or $400 party you get that bundle...soemthing gets you a pack of free Silver Glimmer Paper!
Bright one huh! LOL

Good morning.

Vikkijo, glad to hear you got a new car, bummer on the payments though...

Everyone have a great Friday... been raining here too and really warm, but temps are taking a nose-dive back to 'normal' this weekend with icy roads forecast for Monday... Whoo-Hooo... skating into work. Great way to start a week...

I was able to get the Google Chrome Down Loader off my laptop, to a stick then install it on here, it would not download at all!
Worked great, speed has improved greatly using Chrome! YAY

Some pages will not though

I can now get on SU site, but after about 3 pages it closes on me, nice thing with Chrome when You restart it, it reloads the last page you were on. Except with SU I gotta go log back in.

Now that looks like it would hit the spot for me right now... wouldn't even mind the ice & snow you're getting Vikkijo with a spread like that! Yummy!!!!

Been cleaning & trying to re-organize the office, talk about a challenge! Trying to go through all the stuff dh had on his computer desk... YIKES!!! I'm sure I'm covered in dust and all that goes with it. Still lots to do but a dent thankfully. Now I have stacks in my living room that he will have to sort... no saying I'm going to do it later! Temps are supposed to be dropping over 20 degrees today from the mid 50s back to the lower 30s... me-thinks winter is back... Wouldn't mind a blizzard that kept us home for a couple of days. Could be really productive for me... I might get more of my house cleaned up and organized better... so much has gone by the wayside in the last couple of months or more... who knows, I may even find my missing mojo somewhere... LOL

Hi girls,

i hope everyone is having a nice weekend. um, should i say that we were sitting at 75 degrees and kinda sunny?? lol........

i had a little mojo yesterday, so i did a post on my blog with it today.

dinner tonite for the guys is pork bbq in the crock. i put some boneless pork ribs and jack daniels bbq sauce in this morning and let it go all day, i'll shred it just before serving. Young Rob doesnt like onions, so i have some simmer on the stove in the sauce too.

i saved a couple ribs out for me and they are in the oven with carrots, celery and parsnips, i seasoned them with sage, thyme, onion powder and butter.

tomorrow if the weather is nice we will follow Rob back to base and take his motorcycle for him, along with some things we stored for some of his buddies. other than that, no special plans. dinner will prob be leftovers or a quick bite to go somewhere.

It rained here late afternoon Thursday and Stopped Saturday morning, then snowed, and WOW that wind! I thought it was going to take the roof off! Today it is 3F above.....BURR

It is so slippery out walking to the mailbox is scary! Back when we lived in the motor home out here, I have a path through the woods, where it was parked, to the road, so I can stay off the driveway. its awful I drove out once to run to town, only got to the road and the car slid for about 20' so i said NOPE stayin home!

I've been making cards during the day, then I get to feeling like I'm being lazy so I quit, then when I come back the lighting has gotten too gloomy for me to be crafty.

I hate winter! the lighting is so different in here. I took over this room cuz it has a 72" window on 3 walls,.


Well I think my OCD is suffering, I usually rearrange my Chefville, but I can't play any games using this either it's the internet connection or the PC I have to use it on. it has XP. but its so slow, it keeps coming up Virtual memory too low, windows simply close. GRRR

I have moved the 2 tables around about 4 times to get comfortable, I have 5 chairs in here and I have changed which one I use more often then potty breaks! LOL

I tried to clean up a bit int eh other room, but without running water I just get annoyed. I heat water, but its just...GRRRRRRRRR

Clint did nothing all day yesterday, seriously nothing, he sat in the chair in here, and bobbed in and out of sleep, then he went back to bed, he didn't get up till after 1 pm
He was back in bed before 7

I am thinking about asking Judy if I can come over and do laundry at her place.
I'd like to get Clint up to go get Jay to work on the water then go, but I know they'd just sit for a smoke and never get back up again, I have to stay on them, following them and nagging basically.

If I sit down to stay out of the way it's not long before they are in here sitting to talk about how they should run the new line.


It's been all talk for 14 days now



Oh, here's an idea of bad Clint has been.. the M&M's you girls sent are still unopened! He does nothing, He nibbles at whatever I fix, so I don't even make a meal now.
I've made burgers, he eats part of one then it's puppy food, I made lasagna HIS FAVE barely touched it.

Well I'm gonna find something in the gallery to CASE, one fo the threads I am co hostessing 1 of the ladies has challenges everyone to look at their faves in the gallery and CASE it. Done 2 so far.

Love ya ladies.....see ya later!

Hey everyone! Vikki, I miss texting with you! Miss you girl!

Not much is new here. Tax season hours have started. We had freezing rain and ice Saturday night. A lot of the side roads are still not very good at all. Parking lots are scary terrible. The sun is out today though, so I'm hoping that helps.

Yesterday was the 9th "anniversary" or whatever you want to call it of my Dad's passing. It is easier now, but I still miss him so very much and think of him daily. He was so much fun to be around.

A few other things going on, but I don't care to post them here...perhaps will send out an email later.

Anyways...all is well, and life is good and happy! That's all that matters. 2013 for me is all about getting healthy and staying happy! My goal is (AFTER tax season) to cut out all soda. I was reading Vikki's posts, and that kinda confirms it for me that I really need to work on it. I won't go cold turkey, but I do plan on gradually getting soda out of my life. Wish me luck!

Stamping...haven't done much lately. I am in the process of getting ready for a shoebox swap. That is FUN! I too want to place a SAB order, but will have to wait until my first overtime check on February 10th. I can handle it.

Meanwhile I am having a Tastefully Simple party on January 26th. It should be a great time. Even if I don't get many orders, it's still fun to have a bunch of friends get together for laughs and conversation. Chey will be happy to have adult company as well!

Hope all is well. Grace, I'm glad to see you stopping in! Kerriann, good to see you as well.

Holly, look on Pinterest for recipes. I have a board full, and there are TONS of them out there!

Hugs to everyone! Gotta get busy....

Good morning girls.

I have had a few productive days. The houe is clean and tidy. The washing and ironing are up to date and there is a pile of old filing to shred. The yard needs a day spent in it, but it has been way too hot. Today is to be a bit cooler, so hopefully Bug and I will get into it. That is, unless he has to shoot ito Brisvegas to the Apple to shop to get Browny's phone fixed - he smashed the back of it yesterday. Bug and him have swapped phones but I wil convince Bug that he can get the phone fixed tomorrow. Sally is off to the vet for a vaccination today. I seriously think I need to talk to them about some ADHD meds too! She is such a cyclone......

Browny is all excited. He bought himself a 1982 Honda XR500 to do up. Looks like a dumb old motor bike to me, but he has been looking for one for ages - apparently!

Hi everyone! Just me checking in again! I haven't been sleeping well at all. One night in the past week I got a good night's rest. Oh well. I just plug along best I can!

I received my electric bill this morning. I almost started crying. I have an email into them to ask them WHY is it SO high??? Holy cow! I am still in shock! I will go broke at this rate!

Not much else is going on. Work and that's about it.

Tim and I are going to see Honor Flight at the the theater tonight. Spaghetti at home for supper and then the movie and then probably home to walk Cheyenne.

Hugs!

that is very good advice! you just never know who is out there, esp if they are on your facebook page and link to here, or your blog etc etc, its scary how people can find info when they want to.......no privacy in this world anymore!!

we also had a blow to our income......we knew there would be changes this yr with all this cr*p going on in Washington, and we know we are not alone, BUT, we are now losing another $80 a mo.......thats not really alot in one way, but it is in another. i mean, i could do alot with that 80, lol........oh well, i will not whine any more over it.

we had already planned to work better on our budget and savings, so this just pushes us to get busy on it!


thurs i had some "me time" and got inky, i took pics and will post on my blog hopefully this weekend.

Mom goes for some testing this coming week, she has been having dizzy spells. it may be her one med is too high, or, could be time to change pacemaker battery. we shoudl know by fri.

tomorrow i am trying a new to us potroast recipe for the crock. you place the roast and veggies in and add two 12 oz bottles chili sauce and 1 can coke........we shall see how it tastes........... it took me forever in the commissary to find the darn chili sauce, i tried the taco section, nope, then the canned chili section, nope, bottled pasta sauce sect, nope.......it was over by BBQ and A-1 stuff........sheesh!


i hope everyone is having a nice weekend!

Hi Girls

I have cleaned and tidied my yard to an inch of it's life. I pulled lots of plants out and have the blisters to prove it.

Nothing exciting going on here. I am crafting today. Taking Peta with - she hasn't done 'real' craft for ages, seeing as she has been working. We are making photo frames out of pizza boxes and decorating. They look great on the web site, although it sounds a bit strange, now that I have written it.

Bug has two weeks of holidays left. He hasn't really been doing anything intereting.

Yuck to the power bill. Ours are always pretty big. Between $400 and $500 a quarter, depending on the season. We have gas hot water and cooking which is about $300 a quarter as well. I would love to cut them down, but I really don't know how, other than to be a bit drastic.

Yuck to the tax hike you guys have now too. It seems to be pretty awful over there all round. Lucky if you have a good job, but the low wages and the tax make you wonder........ It isn't as bad over here - the GFC didn't hit as hard. Our wages are higher than yours ( I think) and the latest unemployment figures came out at 6%.

Anyways, I need to have brekky and get ready for a drive so that I can craft....

Check in...

I too have yucky high bills. This is my first 2-day weekend since Christmas. Kind of kicking back and working on my budget for the upcoming year. have to come up with some serious big money - need to replace the roof on my house. Going through stuff and getting rid of unwanted or duplicate items too.

This past Wed I had my colonoscopy - everything is good - don't have to do that again for another 10yrs. Only good news I've gotten since the first of the year.

Gotta find someone on here who can tell me how to change my name. Want to remove the last 3 letters - don't know yet what I want my new name to be, but I'll think of something. Maybe one that incorporates my love of dogs.

Weather has been nice here... well, nice for January anyway. But starting tomorrow the temps are supposed to drop and won't get above 10* for a few days. Going to be thinking positive on that though - think how good 25* will feel.

Hope everyone is staying healthy and avoiding the nasty flu bug that's spreading it's horrible wings.

I'll stop in sooner from now on.
