42 days until vacation

Thursday, July 05, 2012

I finally put my name in the days off book for our vacation time! Boss does not put the whole summer in at once or the same people will take all the days for themselves.. there are only four slots for each weekday and three for weekend days.. I do not work weekends, so that is a moot point for me,, but still glad I got my name in there.. The month is almost all filled up and they just opened the book three days ago!

I met with my insurance guy today to get parents home put on this insurance company. THe company, Hine Knopp, had been parents insurer for the past forty years,, last weekend I called to ask agent if he would go over policy with me, he refused,, ,, I called my insurer that I just switched to,, he was very happy to go over it, explain it and now the parents home is insured in my name,, I saved mom $200 and got her a LOT more coverage on her home and some riders.
Paybacks are hell.. hormonal Harry lost a big account, we saved $$ and new agent is nice, happy to accommodate and has three new accounts!! emoticon

I hope everyone remembers what today is about, not colored bombs exploding in the sky just to look at.. but sacrifices made by armed forces, their families, friends. Sacrifices of time, talents, lives,, jobs, limbs, sanity,, all so that you and I are not bowing and scraping to a first century mentality governing body.
We can drive anywhere in our country, eat, drink, drive, watch and worship, anything we want to,, because of all of them from the Revolutionary war to present.. stop for at least one minute today and personally thank them,, silently or walk up to a live vet and thank them,, they did what they did because they think as much, or more, of you, than they do of themselves..
Thank them for being unselfish...

I finally posted a vlog yesterday, a big deal fo rme,, check it out!! look over yesterdays blogs and see I did two, one a vlog.

today we are having thunderstorms, knocking power out, hope to get essentials done before it happens again,, I was up at three for work, got home after nine,,
I rushed home, changed clothes, ran errands to parents bank, my credit union, then to pick up a Rx.. I was afraid the power would go out again and nobody would have computers working..

Got little sleep last night, so will be in early tonight!! We have 100% humidity, 95 degrees,.. not a day for outdoors..
uh-oh, I hear the loud thunder again,,
