Thank you for responding to my last blog. I guess I am doing a little better because I wrote last Saturday, too. Since I do not have the race track job, I do have a little more time on Saturday to be online. However, my computer is acting really weird. Three days this past week, I couldn't get it to turn on. Actually, some of the time it would turn on, BUT within a few seconds or minutes, it would turn itself OFF. It hasn't worked well for a few weeks, but for now, it is working. While I am online, I feel that I have to do everything to try and catch up from the three days that I could not get online.
This has been an action packed week with several small minor incidents occurring to cause stress, worry, money, or things that were just simply time consuming. However, most of that is behind us now, so hopefully this week will be less stressful, less worrisome, cheaper, and less time consuming.
My sister, Shelby had her 81st birthday on Wednesday. We are going to a restaurant on Sunday to celebrate her special day. My heart was broken when her son did not even call to wish her a HAPPY BIRTHDAY! He is mad for some reason, and has turned away from ALL of our family. He did invite me to be his Facebook friend, and I accepted, but nothing has come from that. I did send him a message on Mother's Day and before her birthday asking him to "PLEASE call your Mom." He didn't call on either occasion. So sad because this is her only child, and he has one child who has three children, and we have no contact with any of them. I did say other things in my message about Shelby's poor health and how happy she would be just to hear his voice. But all she got from him was NOTHING! I did not tell her that I had messaged him, so at least she doesn't know that he was encouraged to call, and simply REFUSED! Kids can be so cruel to their elderly parents. This guy isn't a kid though. He is in his mid-50's. I hope he doesn't wait until it is too late to realize that it is TOO LATE!
We are doing OK. Cats are fine, although I thought Max might be needing to go to the vet earlier this week. He had several coughing spells. Actually, it looked like he was having a hairball issue, but no known hairball appeared. Then on Thursday, he started coughing and he did have a hairball. He's been fine since that time. He has real long hair, and I guess continued grooming caught up with him. I am still keeping a close eye on him. When he wasn't coughing, he seemed fine.
Bought a barely used tractor from my mechanic friend. After he delivered it, I looked at it the next day, and it had TWO flat tires. He came by today to take the two tires off, and he is going to replace them. I offered to pay for the new tires, but he said, "NO!" I was OK with that!
Of course, the tractor was delivered with all tires inflated, and they still looked fine, but he is taking them to a Tractor Supply place to see what is wrong with them.
I've been on here long enough, so I am out of here. I need to get to the dump before it closes in an hour. Have a GREAT WEEK, ALL! If my computer will start up and stay on, I will be around this week. If not, I will have to decide what I want to do.
SPOKENWORD - I wish that "LAPTOP" goodie that you sent me really worked!
That might be my next solution. Get a laptop. Sure would be less trouble than this desktop that I have now.
