more taxes to do..

Tuesday, March 01, 2011

I have not received my tax returns yet, but now I have to make an appointment to get moms done,, I am turning cartwheels, I am so happy!! .(sarcasm). I will get them done and have her sign them,,
Kristy and I went power shopping today,, I had three $50 gift cards I got from doing online surveys and such,, so we went to target and I bought a new Hoover OMGITHASEVERYTHINGATTACHEDTOITBUTMYBROTHER
S N-TS vacuum! My old own stilkind of works, but we need more suctiona dn the better filters,, my Panasonic I bought in 1989 needs a rest.. I ended up paying $29 for this $179 sweeper!! We bought some odds and ends we needed and headed out to moms to check her mail, then the bank to do her banking, then to the grocery store, then to my car dealer for a free car wash, then home,,

I think my credit card was on fire!! NO frills or luxuries either, food, orthotics, some birthday cards.
a very productive day,,
we also had a heatwave of 38 degrees according to Cedric,,
hoping the weekend will be warm too..

    We missed our appointment due to snow and now we must wait 6 weeks for an opening.
I had hoped to be able to find a low air fare with all the deals around. I have taken a look but i am sure it will not be happening any time soon.

Unless we start using US oil. what a thought.
Hope Mom is doing well in her new place. HUGS Pat in Maine.

    How about hearing another day of snow over 14 inches of Snow friday and a warming and RAIN on Monday. We have snow almost to the roof and the roof is the biggest worry.
If we get rain on so much snow there will be buildings collapsing. We are in a small ranch style house and we do have a trusses roof but it is unhappily on 24 inch centers i wish it was 16. I feel sure we are safe but there are many very old houses here and I hope it stays cold for safety's sake. HUGS stay warm I changed my page and mind set to SPRING.

Had some major issues last night: the bride whose wedding I am standin gin in a couple months, her fiance` is a geek, so he came over after we came back from moms.. gave me pc a shot of expertise and went on his way,, what a doll!
Even though the threat of a crash was here, as stressful as it was, I STILL am thinking it was great day since we had him as a resource..
I SO am grateful for all the things I have or am gifted with:friends, job, insurance, home, car, health (such as it is) and a stubborn German tenacity to plug through things that I would rather not deal with, just sweep under the rug and let another person deal with..
I am trying to work on eliminating the whine with my cheese, but I strive for progression, not perfection.

    I like that "eliminating the whine with my cheese'. I am like that too...I constantly find myself complaining, even when I don't think I am complaining. It makes me sound so negative and I don't want to come across as that type of person.

Good Luck with your journey on progressing! We all know you can do it!http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypag

Except for the death of our friend, this as actually been a very good week for me,, I talked to and got an order from one of the specialists to get one of my new meds changed to a generic,, then I hit the jackpot with my income tax returns,,
yesterday we filled our gas tank up and got $.75 off per gallon at Krogers,, today the price went up $.13 overnight!! We actually lucked out with that,,

went to visit mom today, took her lots of her things from home, we decorated her shadowbox(in the wall outside her door,, for residents to recognize their room and have pride of something of theirs), moved seem furniture for her, organized all of her things,
we then visited for a couple hours, saw that she needed adult diapers, so went to Walgreens near there and turned around and took them back to her room, got her all stocked up for awhile,,
all in all, a good day,, tired, but feel I accomplished something for a change,,
tomorrow is her banking, bill paying,, church,,
call to karen to see about going to lunch with her,,,
I hope this happiness and easiness stays with me for a bit,,

    Good for you, girl!

I think its very true that we find what we look for... you find that peace and 'easiness' because you expect it, and there you are!... may it be a habit for you from now on, that lovely feeling!...

    You're sounding good and positive, Linda. I hope that the sunshine continues in your life for awhile. Things were pretty rough for you last year and for awhile this year. You deserve it.

    Glad to hear you had a good day :)

I just found out today that an old friend from high school passed away suddenly at age 49 on Wednesday. He was from Bay City.

You got a great savings on your gas at Kroger! Too bad we can only get the savings on one fill up.

    Looks like things are started to fall into place for you. Between all the errands and bill paying you still need some down time. Don't forget to fit in Lin.
