Hubby and I headed for Home Depot. Last night our hot water heater died. This morning I boiled water to wash up the dishes and clean the kitchen. Tonight Hubby said to leave the dishes as the new NJ to water heater is to be installed tomorrow. Told Hubby I wanted to spend money on the things I want for the house and not the needs. We put gutters on the back of the house, the fan burned up on the account heat unit, an...

I got there early and they started coming in. They all thought it would not be by push as everyone would be home watching the game. Anyway, it kept me busy and my day flew by Sun, 21 Jan 2018 19:28:43 EST PLANNING DAY http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6454002 Well I worked today and Hubby went to the market. When I got off, we had a meatloaf thawing. Hubby makes great meatloaf, but way too big for us. We divided it and cook half and freeze the other half to us within the next two months or wo., we went to Public to pick up some veggies for dinner. We got fresh green beans and Brussels sprouts for tonight. We got some beautiful salmon for tomorrow evening. We got some Italian sausage , cherry tomatoes and can all beans for another dinner. I ...

I had made a pot of beans last night and carried about a cup full for my lunch. I heated them and it took me about an hour and a half to eat them between clients. All the clients were upbeat and happy today. That makes for a good day. <BR> <BR> Last night I made a sauce with 4 large cans of San Marino tomatoes, using half a head of fresh chopped garlic, spices and oil oil. I cooked it down long and slow. Tonight, I put about a dozen of frozen me... Fri, 19 Jan 2018 22:04:53 EST GOOD DAY http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6453243 Big Boss came by our location and she and I had a long conversation. My computer was replaced with a new unit so I am working. She and I talked about what we need at our location and what is expected from each of us. So all is well Thu, 18 Jan 2018 23:38:09 EST HAD THE DAY OFF http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6452858 I had the day off and see the 8 hours at the office. One of the other workers called in this morning. Her husband was up all n I got sick with the flu and dehydrated from throwing up. She was taking him to the emergency room. The flight is really bad in our area. Have not heard from her but hopefully he is settled. They have four children so she had to get someone with them to take him in. <BR> <BR> So tomorrow work as usual. Hubby laughed because he told me when I came in last nigh... Wed, 17 Jan 2018 23:49:28 EST TEMPS ARE LOW http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6452179 Our temperatures are running in the 3rd but for some reason I am colder than usual and I am all bundled up drinking hot tea to try and get warm. Coco is all snuggled into my side and the throw. I will say her little body is giving odd good heat, unfortunately she is small. We keep the house at the same temperature all the time so I am sure it is just me today Tue, 16 Jan 2018 09:15:13 EST BUSY DAY http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6452041 Well I went to work this morning and I never got to finish my coffee until my relief came in at 3:30. Hubby came and picked me up so we could go pick up Baby Girl and bring her home. They are absolutely wonderful to her. She of course was happy to see us. She rode in my lap until we made a stop. Hubby got her some water and put her in the back seat. She is so contend to lay there on her bed. She knows that she is going where ever we are. We got home and she had to inspect the yard to ... Mon, 15 Jan 2018 22:44:26 EST HOME AGAIN http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6451554 We went to Hubby's mom. She is ill and will not recover. I will say she seems at peace with herself. Her face has a content look. For the last year she has an angry pinched look. Mad at the world. Now it is a soft look. She called me in to talk with me (what not her style), she wants me to take care of her son as men are unable to care for themselves. I was never her choice for him. Now 38 years later I guess she accepts that I am his companion, wife, friend, etc. She has softene... Sun, 14 Jan 2018 21:45:53 EST HEADING OUT http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6450444 We are packed and ready to get up early and head to Hubby's mom. His mom is definitely going down fast. I feel that this will be the last time he will see her alive. He is with heavy heart on this trip. I know how he feels, but can not talk to him about it. We traveled to my parents when each was I'll and I was so devastated when I would leave as I knew I would not be coming back to give them a hug and kiss Thu, 11 Jan 2018 23:03:45 EST WORKING ON HEALTHY http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6450037 Well I am a horrible Eater during my work season. As a matter of fact I will go up to three full days with no food, just my morning coffee. I am working on doing better this year. Today I made two cup air popcorn, which I ate in the morning, half cup Chunk fresh pineapple, a banana 6 walnut halves and 1 dark chocolate dove candy. When I got home Hubby had made tuna salad for sandwiches. I ate mine with chopped cucumber and no bread. I cubed halve a cucumber to take with me tomorrow, pac...

Did not get far until I raised there was a real problem. Back up on the road where I usually zip right thru. Police cars everywhere. Learned later that a construction crew had unearthed an explosive device so the major roadway was closed and all traffic diverted to a two lane road. Decided I needed to try and get to my office and forget the shop. The normally 12 to 15 minute drive turned into 4... Tue, 9 Jan 2018 22:08:43 EST LOTS TO DO http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6449173 Well I have made my to do list for the next two weeks.

I took our office and my manager took his office. This changed our schedules for the rest of the week. Hubby and I are going to his own on Friday and we will be there through Sunday. <BR> <BR> She is going downhill at a fast so her time is limited. Hubby wants to be with her but she makes it so hard. She gives him a really hard time about everything. There is no subject you can talk about with her. ... Sun, 7 Jan 2018 20:11:13 EST CAR FISED, HEAT AIR REPAIRED, PHONE BATTERY http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6448181 Well today is the day for getting things done. Up early and off to dealership. The new battery in my car was bad. They replaced it. Came home and they put the new fan and condenser on our heat and air unit. Hubby changed out the battery in my phone back to one of the old ones, but he did not mark them as to which came out of which phone. His was the strongest battery so we will see. The new one is getting hot when charging. The other night it was at we percent and three hours later I ... Sat, 6 Jan 2018 17:23:32 EST PHONE PROBLEM http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6447583 Well now that I am out working everyday, etc, my cell has decided it is going to show me it's age. I try to answer and it will of respond. Last night it got hot instead of charging. I think when Hubby gets home I am going to have him change the battery back out. He got us new batteries before Christmas and this is when the problem started. My old one was weaker than his so he marked them and put in a drawer. I hope this is the problem, and will correct my issues at least for another 6 ...

This is unusual for us. Got up this morning and Hubby had left for work. It was raining and freezing cold. He leaves early before daylight. I had requested he call me as soon as he got there. He has to cross 5 bridges to get to work and they freeze first. I usually sleep until a out 7:45, but the wind and rain woke me up at 5. I got up and then tried to go back to sleep but could not. He usually gets to work about 6:15. No... Wed, 3 Jan 2018 22:11:38 EST COLD http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6446376 Well for No Florida, we are cold. We are going down in the mid 20s. We are expecting rain tonight so we will have ice tomorrow. I was hoping Hubby's work would cancel tomorrow but I do think they will. I am 6 miles from my office and no bridges to cross. Of course, if it starts snowing I will lock up and come home. I grew up with snow, but here the people do not know how to drive in it and that is the danger. Hopeful this will be short lived in our area. Not use to that much cold now.... Tue, 2 Jan 2018 21:15:36 EST OUR NEW YEARS http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6445815 We spend our usual new years time with friends. We approved about 4.

Mon, 1 Jan 2018 20:19:22 EST WORKING TODAY http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6444555 Working today but off for the next two days. We usually do not start to work until the 3rd, so I have never had to be concerned about the New Year holiday. The company was planning to be open on the 1st, but no one wanted to work. Hey I work this job because I have a few months of work and then off except for my required C.E.s . Gives me my spending money for the year, and I enjoy all my customers. Sat, 30 Dec 2017 00:34:51 EST COLD http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6444540 Well here in New Florida we are turning cold.

Computers were rolled to the new program and of course, nothing is working right. I have been all day getting one thing and another to work. I am now waiting on the computer tech to get back with me. There is no printer driver for my unit, so therefore, I am not able to use my station. I have to go to another station to use them if I have anything for a customer. Most things have been questions which I have been able to handle. <BR> <BR... Wed, 27 Dec 2017 16:49:15 EST DAY WITH HUBBY http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6443580 Hubby off today. He wanted to have breakfast at a place near us. We got there and was a long wait. We decided to go on with our day as it was full. We got coffee and headed into town. We went to the bank and was able to transfer our old home to the guy purchasing it. It was a fluke we could do it today. That's a big load off my mind. He has been living in the house and doing his thing. He has put in some tile, etc. Told him not to invest much until we could transfer, but he is happy... Tue, 26 Dec 2017 23:29:51 EST HEADING OUT http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6442568 On our way to Hubby's moms. It is going to be a really bad holiday. She has gone down so much and is so frail and sleeping a lot. I think Hubby is preparing himself for the situation, but I am not sure that he is really prepared. He talks to her daily, and she sleeps a lot. <BR> <BR> I am torn with this situation. I have been married to him for 38 years and she has never really accepted me. I think that Hubby is now seeing this side of her as her cancer has progressed. He is wanti...

They are going fishing tomorrow and she goes with them. Never mind she is almost blind, has a bad hip, she loves going with them. They set up a bed, umbrella and station by their truck so she settl...

I need to be sorting out some things Hubby brought into the house, but I am taking a few hours just for me. I am brewing some fruit tea and I am going to put me feet us and sip tea on our outdoor room before it turns too cold to enjoy. Birds have been at the feeder a lot today. Every time the small ones come in there is a large one that flies near them and they take off. He does not slow down enough for me to see what kind, but he is smaller than the hawks...

We had both little ones and the new baby slept through it all. The 2 year old was doing really good. He eats so well and is well behaved when we are in public. He likes to tell me all about his little brother. He tells me what he did, if he cried and he was telling me all about the book his mom was reading them the night before. When I was leaving he was jumping up and down in front of me. He wanted to give me a kiss b...

I had texted a coworker for other info. She had text me back telling me she would get back with me. The TV froze and a message came on for me to reset by unplugging the system a for one minute. As I have it all on a surge protector I just cut it off wait and cut...

They walked us to the door and wished us a Merry Christmas. We told them we would see them after the ... Mon, 18 Dec 2017 22:55:39 EST BEAUTIFUL SUNDAY http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6441140 We got up and went to market. Hubby had purchased my Christmas present from one of the people I buy from. I had turned something down as it would have been for me and I felt I could not afford them. She told Hubby about them and he bought. I think I know which thing he bought. <BR> <BR> We opened up and we stayed until 3:30.

We have a good group this year. I feel good about them. They ask intelligent questions. As I told them my rule was you can ask questions all you need to to make sure you understand, but if 3 weeks and still asking the same questions you need to regroup where you are. Also if you make a mistake, learn from it, don't make that mistake again. Ther...

Brought them to a boil and let simmer. They simmered for 3 hours when I added some salt. Putting in salt in dried beans before they are soft can keep them from ever cooking properly.
