I am a bitc... well you know.Not one of my kids would give me crap or I would take them out LOL They know it too.
Michael is dumb that is why he gets in trouble.My only one that has had a drug/booze problem is my daughter.So when she cries and tells me she can't see her kids I remind her that I can't either.She has cleaned up her act but it is years too late.
I hope J gets his act together.It is so sad to watch them be this way.

Would you come do it for me?? emoticon I did tell him yesterday that I wanted him to move out..he yelled at me in the parking lot..said he had a place but I said no..no to an apartment above the bar!! That was when he was going to be working at the other place and I thought he was done with all of it..guess not. I called his brother and told him that hes still in the bar and going to be until after the ball game at 9 or so..he's not one to talk either..on his way to the bar to play pool! But they are coming out for the fireworks, so that'll be nice..although I'd rather go ALL BY MYSELF!! Ahhh.. I think I'll call his other mother..the drunk here in town and tell her hes moving in with her..she'll love it..her DDH (dear drunk hubbie) is in jail for a month now..maybe she'll enjoy his company..if you know what I mean! I did take back my beading area, she can if she wants do hers on the floor. I'm not moving mine. I'm getting so close to finishing my 2nd THE bracelet..I haven't worked on it for two days!

OH I DID notice you said moving, not moving in!! BIG difference..ha!!

Geeez Kylie.Please notice I did not say I was moving him home with me.He is renting a room from his friends mom.It is closer to where he works.He does not have a car and we live 30 miles out of town ~wink~ When he did live withus and did have a car he always paid his own bills and rent.
I do not allow drinking and drugging PERIODS I am an @ss about that. So they do not want to stay with us.
I must say he has been good since he has been out.He does nopt want to go back.Child services better not find the GD there boy that would be a can of worms..I am sorry he is being a pain
Kick him out I would LOL
Have a grea tweekend .We are leaving early and heading into the forest. emoticon

Kylie how old is he? He didn't learn a thing did he? Course all kids think moms are crazy. If he has to go it on his own, he'll be singing a different tune! Nice, peaceful thoughts coming your way!

I bought two red plants..oh the ones I was talking about before..duh.. anyway..they and the other two are sitting outside in the shade waiting patiently for me to plant them. We had some rain yesterday and I'll wait until this evening to plant them..got going too late today to do it!

I wish I was moving MY son this weekend..can he move in with yours Arlene? Ugh.. He is such an @ss.. We got into a shouting match in the Walmart parking lot..small town USA parking lot!! I've never had so many looks! I left him and the GD there to walk home. I gathered up and counted HIS money and the receipts for everything I purchased with HIS money..he took what I had saved for his court costs and has it in his pocket for blowing money..no need to pay half the rent or utilities or the Directv that I don't watch because he always has the remote! Maybe I'll have it shut off! Ha..that would serve him right.. He told me that I told him NOT to move out..the place above the bar..when he was going to work at the other nice place..no..why would he want to live above the bar when he was trying to get away from it..now you can't get him out of it..and has the GD in it ..ugh.. I hate my life! I want him out out out..go be who you are out of my house...OK..I'm done.. thanks for reading.. emoticon

Well you'll have to be there in spirit another day! Whew..I have two more to go! I don't have that many, it's just finding the sun for them! I have a shady yard! And took sunny flowers! I don't know what my landlord will do when I leave?? She probably has NO idea what I've done to her yard..she doesn't much care either!

My Columbine bloomed beautifully this year. I have a large swing it was trailing up but then we got a bad storm which blew it off the swing and now it is a mass and I can't get it to grow back up I think it is just to heavy. Ooh, I forgot we had a lot of rain last night which means I need to spray my day lilies and hostas now. What everyone does at 9:30 at night!

Hey Mae I am going to look at the pictures .I love horses but I remeber those days you were talking about an I do not bounce as good as I did when I was younger.The baby shower is much more my speed these day. I did go mule riding while we wer at Bryce Canyon but I think they are pretty barn struck and used to doing what they do.Having him cut was a good move he should settle real soon LOL I need to have my puppies cut as well ~wink~ next month don't tell them .
I always forget the one thing I go to the store for. LOL
HAve a great afternoon.

Okay Silver - Chief has been posted to my photo gallery.

Okay, I'm done talking about horses. I'll probably have to start another topic altogether if I keep this up, LOL.

But back to my hostas...didn't get the beer nor did I get the coffee grounds, but will one of these days. I went to the grocery store the other day and had SD with me. I felt embarrassed to buy it front of her.

Who have you encouraged today?

Silver: That's what my sister is good at, finding free animals, takes care of them and either keeps them or gives them to her daughter and grandson. He's a pretty guy. I'll have to download that one onto here in my gallery as well. Marylou said at first he wouldn't even let her put the bridle on him for two days,, then she quieted him down and on Friday, he got cut and Saturday he didn't come to her probably because of that, but after SD walked over to him, he behaved a little better. He seems to be biting a little bit, and Marylou was talking to him and all that.

We went to a horse show yesterday afternoon and it just seemed to rain a little and the show was barrel racing. The one girl came out from her time in the ring and she didn't get her horse stopped in time, it slid on the grass and went down and she went down hard and it broke 3 ribs and her back was sore. They had to call an ambulance for her. Then, the next horse rider out was a teenager and she couldn't control her horse. It started to buck her because she held onto the reins too tight and it bucked her right off. She got back up though. It was a better show the rest of the day. Then, we came home and SD and I attended a baby shower. Pretty peaceful Sunday, but still humid.

Who have you encouraged today?

Arlene..is there anything that can be done for your dad? I'm so sorry he's having such a rough time of it! Mine needs a pacemaker, but refuses..they say they are done! I hate that..

I'm going to go get some Hostas today. A friend has some and J now refuses to go with me..what a jerk..he told me that he would ..guess when he was drunk, not he refuses..says I don't need them..well, I don't..it's not my yard..but I can't see them tossing them into the dump! My gosh there are old fashioned bleeding hearts, some ferns, hosta, odds and ends of everything. I just need to remember which side of the house they belong on! I have NO sun left..those will have to go to my sisters and she doesn't want them! I would much rather stay home and work on my bracelet! And list some! I also need to get my butt out and walk! You would think for someone that doesn't work there would be more hours in a day!

Have a special Sunday! Hugs

Oh, it is HUMID out today. No walking or exercise for me today. SD is here today and we're visiting my one sister who has horses. She just got a new black and white paint who is 7 years old. She got it free because he's not broken. The gentleman who got it is a grandad and he got it for his grandson, but because he's not broken, it bucked off his grandson, so now he didn't want it.

That sister, Marylou, has several horses and we visit her from time to time. She's got a miniature, a clydesdale, and two other normal ones I call them, and she got this paint and over the winter she inherited a lamb named Lucy. I'll upload the clydesdale to my photo gallery. Her name is Mora.

Who have you encouraged today?

Yep, I work in a hospital. I tell ya it's hard these days. Since my husband has been diagnosed with diabetes, he's been seeing more doctors and such. I've told him to make sure he puts me down as someone that they can let info out to, or they won't. That's terrible it's gotten that way, that a spouse or parent can't even get info anymore.

I had a lady call the day very upset about her daughter who had her baby premature and I couldn't tell her anything without her daughter's permission.
It's just horrible what that woman must be thinking if her daughter and/or her baby was okay.

My first husband and I had moles and he had traps for them. But, it's a little gruesome, so most probably wouldn't want to try it.

For all those animal lovers out there..cover your eyes and don't read this.. my dad used to take gas and pour down the holes and light them on fire..poof..ran them off..we had a ton of moles in our yard in the country..they were pesky little devils..

OK..heres some Critter Ridder advice..

If you get rid of you grubs, you'll get rid of the moles!

Spraying in the early part of the spring for fleas will eliminate the majority of the grub population and reduce the all over number of insects for moles to feed on.

MUSIC TO GOPHER BY

They don't like loud music..so put a cheap radio on hard rock facing down into the hole..they'll leave

Chocolate was right, but even better is ex-lax..that'll get em on the 'run' ha!!

A fresh piece of ear corn covered in roofing tar will send them running too..they hate the smell!

Hope those help you!

One other thing I just had to share this morning.

I visited one of my sisters yesterday afternoon and she's got a landscaped yard I just slobber over. She's always had a problem with moles and she said that this certain thing she does works in all months except for summer because of the warm weather, but she puts out mouse traps with Hershey chocolate bars. Gets rid of them right off the bat.

So, someone told her to put out cat litter in the summer. Making them think there are cats around and they won't come around. Doesn't work. And she's tried all the other chemicals and things out there, so she's pretty fed up in the summer with these guys. I saw the holes and the trails they make...strange animal.

Who have you encouraged today?

Nope, it's true. I had a friend once who put tobacco on her roses and her roses won an award at a flower show. Pretty neat...they even had the deepest color to them, too. My mom, when my dad was living, put his pipe tobacco on hers. What a pretty yellow color they had.

I have hostas too and it did take a couple of years for them to fill out.

The beer for the slugs should work but it is interesting to hear coffee works too. I donít have a problem with slugs but if I ever do I may give the coffee a try.

Great information!

Used coffee grounds also works well. Just sprinkle a little around your hostas and the slugs will leave them alone.

There's always a lot to be thankful for if you take time to look for it. For example, I am sitting here thinking how nice it is that wrinkles don't hurt.

It'll kill them overnight. It may take several days until they all find it though. As for singles, I think probably only the big ones. You may need that much though to take care of all of them.

Hi Mae,
I used glasses of beer they would crawl into it and they could not get out.I never had a huge problem with them just an occasional few.
I have also hear that diatomatious earth will eork.Needs to be of food grade not the stuff they used in pool filters.
LOL and my evil children thought it ws so cool to melt them with salt
Eww
I had hosta in the NE it took a few years for them to fill out.
GOOD LUCK

OOhh, I read this on another board. They said to get cheap beer and pour it in a pie plate and put it where they are. They crawl in but can't get out.

Last year I put in a shade garden, as well as made it a no maintence garden. It was also my first year for putting in hostas. I thought this year when they came back up, they'd be a little bigger, but they're not and they have been riddled with slugs eating their leaves and leaving their slime behind.

Any ideas on how to get rid of the slugs?
