What a day!

We got Snow.
My day started out a 5:30 am. We head out to Wichita at 6:05 am and the roads were horrible. What usually takes about an hour, took us 2 1/2 hrs. Ugh!! we were only able to 35 to 40 mph. Then as we head to Hutch we saw a van (who was going 60 or faster) land in the ditch. As I am calling 911 we see a white truck loose control and a yellow truck slam right into him. Its like these people don't remember how to drive in this stuff. The trip to Hutch. usually about 30 mins. We made it in 1 hr. Needless to say I am tired of the snow and sitting in a car.
I wish I would have had my camera on me, The scenery was breath taking. I think I am going to have to start carring it with me.
Why a polar bear you ask. It was the only pic I had that went with snow. I know, I know. Don't ask. After the day I had it just makes sense. Trust me.

Being lazy never pays off!!!

Good Morning

Have you ever had the feeling that you should be cleaning your house. You know that NAGGING feeling. I did not listen. I instead played on the computer. Oh sure I did a load of dishes. But pots and pans I did not.

I had talked to my Aunt the night before andasked if she was stopping by on her way home. She had been in our home town for a funeral. She says no she has a stop to make and then straight home. Cool pressure is off. While I was out at Wal-mart my lb calls and tells me she has stopped by. OH MY WORD I AM GOING TO BE SICK. I am in panic mode. I can feel my heart start to beat out of my chest!!! I get home and go thru the back door. She was at the front of my house. Thank God. My lb couldn't just stay up there he had to get up and come help me w/ my groc. Crap. My la deciedes to follow.. Man oh man (I can feel the bile rise) she is in the messy part. She told me she didn't care and that she didn't come to see my house. God love her for that. We have a good visit and she leaves. Ok that wasn't so bad. The worst is yet to be spoken of. Are you ready for this. My lb tells me she had to use the restroom and that he pointed her to ours. I AM SERIOUSLY READY TO PUKE FROM MORTIFCATION.

I have been sick for the last two weeks and just haven't gotten around to any serious cleaning. She used my restroom. (I am making myself sick just thinking about it) The trash has not been emptied the floors have not been swept, and the counter is a catch all for everything. And if that wasn't bad enough she had to walk thru my bedroom to get there. The bed was not made, clothes on the floor. I am sick, lb is getting a good kick out of this. I asked hm why he didn't let her use his. He told me w/ a smile that i could have slapped him silly for "mine wasn't clean". UGH!!

So how was your day?

Make it a good one.

Has anyone woken up just ready for a fight? That was me today.

My day off and I get woken up my soon to be 18 yr old lss. This week has been UGH!!!!!

Lss 1's truck, ('82 diesel) has decieded not to run. He forgot to put the additive in it that helps it not to gel and the truck is letting him know that it is not happy at all. It has been below freezing these last few wks. Seriously what was he thinking, that the truck was going to do it for it's self. I think not. His excuse is he forgot. I could have told him that I forgot how to drive and that he could walk to school. Right. I don't think kids know how to do that anymore.

Anyway. My lh's car kinda caught fire last thurs. Alot of smoke but no flames. Who knows what that was about. It's doing fine now.

I feel better now. I called my sweet sis and she totally relaxed me. She's good at that. Love Ya Sis.

Well make it a great day!

Welcome to my life. First off does anyone want a cat. Seriously I'm not joking. I am not an animal lover!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There have only been a few animals in my life that I have loved and only one has been mine. Poor Sambo. Miss her dearly. The other animals have belong to someone else. My brothers who lives with me. Tasha she is the sweetest thing ever. She has lived with me for 3 years, the other was my sister Renita's and her family Simba God Rest her soul. Ok girls if you are reading this Maggie is ok but you know me.
Now I live with 2 cats one is ok Sophie (my oldest step-son's cat ) she's pretty cool but she can go any time to. We got her for him as a 4-h project needless to say he didn't stay in longer than a month. Stuck W/cat.
Skunk-- on the other hand----makes me want to pinch someones head off. I got manipulated into taking him. Not happy about that!!!!!!!!!!!!! He is my youngest step-sons cat.
Then my dh turns 40 and he wants a bird- oh my word. We get a cockatiel. Ok I said ok to that not realizing what a mess they are or how loud. OH MY WORD. I'm going to need a hearing aide soon.
Anywho, Welcome-- take your medication, grab something to drink and I will try to entertain you.
