I'm looking at all the money I spend by writing a budget. I'm looking at my budget to see where I could cut costs. It's a lot harder than I thought it was going to be. I called the insurance company today to lower my car ins. and the premiums weren't that much of a difference, so I elected to keep it the same. Now onto another bill. Thu, 6 Aug 2015 16:21:08 EST More painting to come. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5972211 I have to trim the bedroom in white. I am having tile laid in my house. In Kelleigh's room, the tile is laid. Next I need to nail 1/4 round on the baseboards. Then, I can put the furniture back in her room. It's getting there slowly. Tue, 4 Aug 2015 21:22:16 EST Got part of my lawn mowed today. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5971758 I mowed some of my lawn tonight before it got too dark. I'll mow the rest tomorrow. I also spent 4 hours painting my daughter's room. I have been a busy girl today. Tue, 4 Aug 2015 00:49:54 EST Poison ivy? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5966242 When you get poison ivy, how long does a person usually have it? I have never had it before so I don't know. I went to the Dr. and he gave me a cream to put on it and wherever I put the cream, that part of my body heals of the poison and then it seems to pop up in another area. This has been going on for about 3 weeks now. Any help? Sat, 25 Jul 2015 00:37:30 EST Boy breaks wrist at church softball game. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5961997 Last game of the night and last hit of the night.

Thu, 16 Jul 2015 23:27:53 EST Cutting down small trees. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5960424 Today I cut down several small trees in my back yard that were hovering over my pool. I also cut down a small tree in my front yard right by the porch leading to my front door. The branches were in the way to get on the porch so I cut ALL of the limbs off. A friend of mine told me I had poison ivy on the other side of my front porch, so I cut it down too. Of course, I had thick gloves on while I did all of this work. <BR> A friend of mine that came and cleaned my air conditioning unit for me ... Tue, 14 Jul 2015 00:08:58 EST VBS started tonight at Sharon Baptist Church. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5959857 VBS for school age children.

How did I get it? http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5957814 I got it from the cement board that's being cut to fit exact spots in my home for a tile job being done in my home. A friend of mine is doing the job and I'm right in there to help. It started popping up on me last Monday and I started treating it with hydrocortisone ointment on Wednesday. It keeps popping up on different areas of my body so I went to the Dr. today and he gave me a more powerful hydrocortisone cream and told me I should be feeling better by tomorrow. I sure do hope so!!!

Tue, 7 Jul 2015 14:55:17 EST Youth sang in the adult choir. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5952489 It was a treat. The youth sang with the adult choir this morning. The youth got back from camp last Friday and they wanted to sing songs in church that pertain to them so they sang in the choir with the adults this morning. At choir practice tonight, the youth were there and they brought 2 songs with them that they wanted the adults to learn so we could sing with them. It was a great experience. They said they would sing with us on Sundays if we were willing to learn their songs and perform t...

She came home today. Of course she had lots of stories about what happened and how much fun she had. She also met a girl from another church in TN. She asked me if we could go visit her. She lives about 4 hours away. I'm not sure that that trip will happen, but I'm glad she had so much fun. Sat, 27 Jun 2015 00:33:58 EST I am air conditioning and heating under my house. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5950544 A problem with the tile job being done in my house brought the guy under the house and he found that there is a piece of duct work not connected. He thought is was going to be hot under there, but much to his surprise, it was very cool under there. I WILL be fixing this right away. It will save me much money in my electric bill. Thank you Lord for accidents.

I spent 3 hours on that. Today, I did more of the same. 4 1/2 hours today. My back is hurting from all the bending and my knees are hurting because of all the kneeling.

There's no telling what time they will go to bed. Oh well!!! I'm going to bed when I'm ready. Sat, 13 Jun 2015 00:16:47 EST Summer is officially here. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5943192 The temperatures for the last couple of days prove that summer is here. My daughter and I set up a pool last Saturday. We haven't been able to use it because of the rain. I'm hoping we will get to use it by this weekend.

I even told my daughter, we are not going to church tomorrow. I wasn't in a very good mood. I had a good night's sleep last night and when I woke up, I called out to my daughter and told her to get ready for church that we ARE going. I told her that what I was upset about is not God's fault and if I was upset about anything that the best place for me was to be in church. It turns out that I had a great day today because of church. Th...

I started at 10 this morning. My daughter joined me at 11. We finally finished the WHOLE thing by 5:30 p.m. We both look like lobsters even though we used aloe vera gel. I'm not sore yet. I wonder if it will be tomorrow. Sun, 7 Jun 2015 00:34:29 EST Not a very uplifting day. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5940494 I wasn't feeling very good today. Maybe a better day tomorrow. Just prayers needed. Thanks to my SP friends for your encouragement.

Wed, 20 May 2015 15:12:57 EST Back to blogging. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5930265 I was on vacation for a month and I didn't always blog.

The tops of the trees are swaying very fast and it's raining. I didn't even know there was rain the forcast. It all took place in less than 2 hours time.

Hope tomorrow is a better day for her. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5914225 Kelleigh has been having trouble with her stomach. Today she had more trouble with it than she normally does. I hope tomorrow she will feel much better. Her stomach might feel better if she had a better diet. She doesn't eat very well. She is a teenager and has decided she doesn't like certain foods. Unfortunately, the foods she has decided she doesn't like are the ones that are good for you, like fruits and veggies. I just need time to get her back on track. Sun, 19 Apr 2015 23:07:11 EST Helped build a greenhouse today. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5913675 My daughter bought a small greenhouse and I helped her build it today. She wants to try to grow some of her own vegetables. She bought organic seeds and wants to see if her own home grown veggies will taste different than store bought and if she thinks it's better to grow your own. Well, we'll see. It was a beautiful day to be outside. Todays high was 79 in CT. Sat, 18 Apr 2015 22:56:55 EST Had a great day out today. http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5913135 Friday is my usual day of getting out of the house even if it just to window shop. 3 of my daughters and 4 of my grandchildren went with me. We bought a few things and had lunch together. Just a day of being together.

We went on a 2 hour tour. We descended or inclined on 598 stairs. My daughter Kelleigh carried the baby on a front pack part of the way and Heidi carried her the rest of the way. We have been on some of these tours before, but every time we go, it is an awesome experience.

When it's thundering I can't use my wifi. I unplug it so that the lightning does hit my PC. I've had that happen before and I don't want it to happen again. It's supposed to rain again tonight, so I need to get all my PC stuff done in a hurry. Mon, 6 Apr 2015 19:37:11 EST Happy Easter http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5906131 I hope everyone enjoyed their Easter Sunday. There was a great message about Christ's crucifixtion this morning in church. My daughter and I went to a church tonight that put on a play about Christ's life. This goes on every year and attracts lots of people. We like to go every year. It reminds us of what Christ did for us as sinners.
