Had a plumber come in the morning and he didn't even make it up to our sidewalk before he turned around and left..blaming a drain field for our plumbing problems. I called the company and was issuing a complaint before he could even make it out of the driveway. So ended up waiting another 3 hours for another plumber to come out. So much for exercise. 2nd plumber made it out and he called the first guy an idiot. They are returning today to "snak...

Contacted the county about who to contact about the gas lines that were put in across my front yard for the sports training facility that was built last year. The ground where they put the lines in....it's now sunken in...making it near impossible to mow in that area. They sent out a guy from public works to take pictures so that they could contact ...

As most that have read my blog on a regular basis know..... I don't have a job. I wish we could bury her in the backyard but we can't because of living on well water.

Didn't get many walks in with having to mow for the first time this year. Wanted to hang around the house yesterday anyways as one of our dogs wasn't doing very well and we knew there wasn't anything the vet could do for her at the age of 14, afterall she was having a lot of old dog problems. Turns out we lost her yesterday. She could had lost her depth perception a couple years ago and went totally deaf last year. <BR> <BR> Yesterday's burn below:...

Trying to get some of the LP's listed that I want to sell on a website. Got too many here especially with the one's here that I picked up from my landlords for the yard sale that we had last week.

Had to take care of my mom and my dad made sure to make it a hard one. One would think that since my sister came up friday and didn't leave until saturday afternoon that my dad would've taken advantage of the fact that she was up. But nope he didn't want to ask anything of her because he doesn't want to interfere with her life. So he saved everything for me including the moving of a table and rug. Not to mention he gave my mom an ex lax saturday night,...

Was an awful lot of work to only have 5 people show up. We need to get more stuff out there to attract people. Warmer weather would've helped to....was only in the upper 40's. We still made a total of $81 though. Our landlord wants us to have another one within a couple of months, so that they can contribute more to it.

Oh well, that's what happens on a day that I'm too busy to bother to think. <BR> <BR> I didn't get in much yesterday due to the rain. Oh well I needed some extra rest as I haven't been feeling that great this week. Not really sick....just lacking in the nutritional aspects and am feeling it.

Did get the work done on my car though. They tried to get out of doing the alignment because it was a saturday and I refused to let them. Wasn't going to let them cost me time or money. They claimed they weren't sure if there was anybody there that could do an alignment and I told them the appt. was scheduled earlier in the week so there had better be someone there. <BR> <BR> Yesterday's burn below: <BR> <BR>...

Definitely needed it after tending to my parents, especially after my own dad hit my car in his driveway. Yet get this.... he has a backup camera on his car. If I hadn't had my front wheels turned a bit from pulling in he would've continued on down the side of my car damaging it all the way down. In other words if my wheel hadn't been turned he wouldn't have heard his car hitting mine. Fortunately for me, there was more damage to his car then mine....
