Please keep my husband in your thoughts/prayers. He has a job interview on Friday that seems hopeful. We really need the $$$, he has been out of work for a long time.
I took a close look at my body today and realized I didn't look half bad for 75 years old. The only problem is I'm forty-two.
I am lucky. Several (about 15) good people whom I had the opportunity to supervise in 1967 thru my retirement in 1995, still email me on a daily basis. I live in Reno, some live in AZ, Tex, Cal, Panama, VA, AL, TN. They were and still are great people.
My husband told me last night that he is just tired of my cooking. That was a shock since he eats everything I put down on the table. I'm fine with that. From now on I will stop on my way home and buy just what I want for supper. He is free to buy what he wants also.
My Daddy always told me that no matter what direction you take in life, always try to be outstanding in your field. I still believe that was the main reason for lightning striking me in 1983.
Our little girls are going to be in their first Christmas play at the Church. The 3 cutest wise men ever.
My sister and her husband just bought a beautiful old barn and 60 acres of mostly pasture in the North Ga. mountains. They are going to build a house that will compliment the barn with their savings. I am so excited for them. They are going to have an organic farm. They even have a gentleman from Virginia, that has done what they want to do by raising cattle,pigs,chickens,veggies,coming down to show them how to get to be organically certified. We will come up to help them of course.
When my children get home from school this afternoon we are going to decorate the house and the Christmas tree. This is one day that the children get their homework done without complaining.
I would retire tomorrow if I could. That way I would only have 1 job.
I applaud the Father that bought something practical for his child and family. When I was laid off last year my MIL bought us White water passes for the summer. That would have been a great present if we didn't need food and money more.
I am so happy. I just found out my husband is having a chicken coop built by the barn for my Christmas present. I have been wanting to have chickens for years now. I promised I would keep it a secret and not let him know that I know.
I never had a child or got married. I'm not rich. I always said at least I can pay my bills and I'm mostly healthy. Now the bills are getting to be too much and every other day there is a new pain, this morning its my left arm. Does this mean I'm going to hit the lottery or are things going to go down hill from here?
I guess I'm not an Unventer because I don't understand how filling my neighborhood as well as the atmosphere with smoke is a good thing.
I thought potatoes were a spring vegetable. They grow over the winter?
I got a christmas card from the Red Stripe Beer Ambassador. I open it up and he's in a santa suit saying "Hurray Beer!"
