    NO BAKING AT MY HOUSE THIS YEAR. I CAN'T EAT THEM AND WE DON'T NEED THEM SITTING AROUND. INSTEAD, I AM HELPING MY DEAR NEIGHBOR AS SHE ALWAYS MAKES HARD TACK, COOKIES, ETC AND SENDS HOME WITH HER KIDS AND GRANDKIDS. MAKING THE HARD TACK STARTS AT 5 AM SO THAT IT IS DONE BEFORE HER HUBBY GETS OUT OF BED AND IT IS STILL COOL IN THE HOUSE. GOOD LUCK ON GETTING YOUR COOKIES BAKED AND ALL THE CLEANING DONE. WITH JANICE GONE, YOU CAN GET IT DONE ON YOUR TIME AND TAKE SOME TIME FOR YOU, HOPEFULLY.
BLESSINGS AND HUGS, MY FRIEND,
HELEN

    Many of your problems are ones that will pass in time and that many of us are going through. I have a job that I don't like and so does Joe. This morning we got into a fight just because he bought the wrong kind of coffee. Imagine that, a fight over COFFEE!!! Really stupid.

You are doing right by counting your blessings. Build on the positives and try to minimize the negatives and remember, this too shall pass.

    CHAR, PRAYING FOR YOU THAT THINGS FALL INTO PLACE ONCE YOU GET STARTED ON THEM. YOU HAVE THE ISSUES LISTED AND I AM SURE YOU ARE WORKING ON THEM ONE AT A TIME. DID YOU GET YOU CAR BACK TODAY? IF SO, IS THE NOISE GONE AND WERE THE STRUTS THE PROBLEM? MONEY SEEMS TO BE AN ISSUE WITH EVERYONE RIGHT NOW. HOPE YOU GET IT ALL STRAIGHTENED OUT. I CAN'T WAIT FOR THE FIRST OF JANUARY WHEN MY PRESCRIPTION COVERAGE WILL TAKE EFFECT AGAIN. $1800 OUT OF POCKET A MONTH IS KILLING ME, BUT SO WILL NOT TAKING THE MEDS...SO WHAT'S A PERSON TO DO. : ) JUST CONTINUE TO SMILE, DEAR CHAR. IT WILL DEFINITELY MAKE PEOPLE WONDER WHAT YOU ARE UP TO AND HOW YOU CAN BE SO CHEERFUL!!! PRAISE GOD FOR ALL THAT YOU HAVE...THE GOOD AND THE BAD. THINGS WILL START TO GET BETTER.
BLESSINGS AND HUGS ARE BEING SENT YOUR WAY, DEAR FRIEND.

    Hang in there, I know that when you are in the midst of problems it is hard to think that there will be anything else. I have found that it comes in waves and troubles end, good times come and then they switch. I try to ride the bad times with a positive attitude and rejoice in the good times. I find that the bad times are not quite as bad if I try to remember that despite them I have many blessings in my life. Good luck, I will be thinking of you.

    I have had major problems lately..see my blogs...

On top of these items, I have to have hand surgery on December 29th and don't even know who is going to be able to drive to and from the surgery suite. Then I will have 2-3 weeks off and be at home with my husband who has been more than difficult to be around. I will "be at his mercy" as far as going places cause I probably shouldn't drive with one hand....I might invest in some ear plugs or turn up my new age music real loud to get some peace (he talks loudly most of the day and night because he is deaf even though he wears his hearing aids in the day time). As you can guess...I would rather be at work than at home and I know this is a sign of something......

Didn't mention our financial problems since he quit his job 1-1/2 years ago...and our arguments about how to balance the non-existent budget that doesn't balance.... emoticon

SO I CALLED HIM AND HE SAID YES THEY ARE WORKING ON IT NOW AND HE DIDN'T WANT TO JUMP THE GUN BUT WILL CALL ME AFTER THEY GET IT DONE AND TAKE IT FOR A TEST RUN. AND THEY ALL HE WILL HAVE TO DO HE SAID IS FIND SOMEONE TO PAY FOR IT. WHAT IN THE HECK KIND OF SERVICE IS THIS?BAD ,BAD,BAD! HE IS TICKED CAUSE THE WARRENTY IS OVER ON IT AND THAT'S HIS PROBLEM FOR NOT FINDING IT THE LAST TWO TIME WHEN THE WARRANTY WAS STILL ON IT NOT MY PROBLEM I JUST SAID TO HIM WELL CALL ME WHEN IT IS FIXED I WILL BE WAITING FOR YOUR CALL.SO WE WILL SEE WHAT HAPPENS IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAY'S THE LADY AT FORD SAID SHE WILL BE CALLING ME WEDNESDAY TO SEE IF IT MEETS MY APPROVAL OR NOT BEFORE SHE CLOSES THIS CASE!SO WHEN I PICK IT UP THE MANAGER AND I WILL GO FOR A TEST RUN TO SEE IF IT IS MAKING THE NOISE OR NOT I HOPE NOT.MY GIRLFRIEND SAID YOU BETTER HOPE THEY DIDN'T OIL SOMETHING TO KEEP IT QUIET FOR A LITTLE WHILE THEN IT COMES BACK!
