The title to this blog is for Sharon,, as of yesterday,,
Today is just busy stuff, bill paying, calls to credit union, calculating deposits and withdrawals..
Ex hub informed me yesterday that there is an unusual swarm of aggressive mosquitoes in parents garage that attacked him yesterday while he was looking for toilet thingies.. I need to get over there and bomb the garage now,, as if it was not enough two years ago when those red and black beetle things swarmed parents house when the tree fell on it.. it took us four months to kill them all and guard from them infesting the interior of the house..
I just read the WN virus article, so I will go there tomorrow and do that,, got some major banking to do , will be busy doing mom things again after work,,
Things like this are a daily event,, five or six dumb things that I never had to deal with before,, this is why my vacation is essential to my health.. way too short, way too far apart, but every second away from here is Nirvana to me, no matter how simple..
One positive thing that did happen before I left for vacation: I entered this sort of contest at my credit union.. it is called save to win,, you make a minimum $25 deposit every week for a year,, each deposit gets you an entry to win a possible $50 monthly, $1,000 every six months, and at the end, the Grand prize is $5,000. All the CU around here are participating so there are thousands and thousands of members that are doing it.. at the end of a year, you can cash the CD in, so no big deal, BUT I actually WON $50 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I called today to see if they deposited it in my savings account,, they did last week!! Guess where that $$ is going?? vacation fund,, every penny I find, all the change I get from anything, I put in the fund,, I also won a $5 gift card adn some free meals form work the day before I left..
I pray we stay healthy enough to go next year,, oh, another thing that happened,,,
DD and I have been using Minagin and Nojmuk, a Native American salve I started buying at the Blueberry festival last year,, Mine is for my fibro, arthritis, diabetic neuropathy,, DD uses Nojmuk for her severe contact dermatitis and eczema.. They work miraculously!! All hand picked herbs,, made right in MIchigan.. anyway, I had been emailing Nathan, the owner, about DD severe skin probs, asking him if he could make much larger containers to sell to us,(he told me I am his best customer) because she uses it all over her body..
He finally got to meet DD last week, he talked to DD and after a few minutes of her showing him how her body had healed, he asked her if she would make a testimonial online.. he had her hold his notebook facing her, he stood behind it , asking her questions,, and that was that,, I then told him how it helped me,, he asked me to do one too.. I did..
All this time, people are walking up, checking out his products, we are telling them how it worked for us,, I think we sold at least five or six hundred dollars of it for him in about an hour.. I am proud to promote this, it is wonderful.. anyway, he gave us free product.. he is our new best friend..
I also left work on the day before we left and somebody had dropped a handful of quarters all over the parking lot.. I looked around, stood there, but nobody around,, I got a windfall of a few bucks for just bending over!!!!!! Mackinac Bridge fare!!! (it is $4 this year)..
So, DD and I should be featured on Nathan's Herbal Lodge website soon,, he has to send us releases to sign, then he can post it..
