sick and update and some whining

Everyone but J is sick in my house me Mike and S either have a sore throat or a full blown cold Mike is miserable but isnt being miserable to everyone else.

The update and whining kind of go hand and hand so here it goes.

Mikes blood pressure is down the medicine is working which I am glad of and he wants to be working this last 4 months of him being off has really been hard for him he has always worked since the age of 17. I am ready for steady income although we have done pretty good with our reduced income but I am ready to buy pop tarts for the kids again. But what I struggle with is I am so going to miss him when he is on the road I can do it I tell myself to buck up this has to be done for our family.

I am hoping the company that he choose is right that he will be home most weekends. I told him and my friend Lyn that I will sleep with a t shirt of his on one hand this sounds silly but on the other hand it doesnt and will may help me miss him less.

That is all for now I hope every one is warm and enjoying fall leaves where they are changing.

Muscle Gods

I love my life I love what I have taught my children about compassion and acceptance but can I say I want a new body.

I would just like one day that I could do want to do without hurting or afraid to hurt. I have angered the Muscle gods but good I cant even bend over without pain it was so bad I thought about going into the ER and see what they can do for me but between the skelation and tramadal it has settled down. It is cold and wet and windy here and has been for the last couple of days.

Nothing else to report at the moment.

The day

Sorry to be so late but someone needed some cheering up after she hit a barrel and cone and failed her drivers test. So my wonderful hubby took me out to dinner and over to see a dear friend.

I have rescheduled the drivers test and it will be in late Oct I know what I got flustered and forgot to put it in drive while still in reverse but its not the end of the world.

A Teaser

Stay tuned for a big announcement if I stay fluster free and keep my cool tomorrow.

Updates while I was out of internet

Lots of things have happened with the 2 weeks no internet stupid phone company. My princess turned 13. Mike has his cdl license and is done with school and has a company lined up just waiting for a couple things to come together.

He finished with a 95 percent grade point average I am so proud of him. I am getting ready for drivers test on Saturday we have been parallel parking for ever and I am confident that I can do it enough to pass. If not its not the end of the world will just keep plugging away at it. I drove the interstates 90 and 79 the other day and loved it except when semis passed me but I kept my cool.

I think that is about it.

An Evil Phone Company!!!

I hate hate hate my phone company Verizon did I mention I hate them. In June my internet contract expired and I agreed to renew it and keep my dsl and they were going to bill me for 70 dollars a month for 2 years for long distance,caller id and all them cool features and dsl well my bills were for 115 a month and I called and complained and was told we will straighten it out just pay the 70 dollars and you will be good.

Well I did that I paid my bill each month on time and they turned off my caller id and long distance saying that I wasn't paying my bills in full I thought okay no big deal I have the cell whatever but I was calling the evil company and told them what was going on and they said dont worry it will all work out this was told to me by a supervisor.

So I got up and my wi fi wasnt working so I figured it was out and didnt worry about it to much so about 5 I called the tech support and they told me that there was no outages and asked me about a light on my modem and I told the guy the dsl light was blinking and he said oh thats not good. The phone company CANCELED MY INTERNET and would not turn it on till the bill was paid so I told them to take the internet and stuff it up there nose. First couple days of no internet was fine no withdraws would look at the laptop and then find something else to take my mind off of it. 3rd day I called my local cable company and they said sorry we cant help you unless you subscribe to cable and I said no thank you I love our directv.

Verizon called me and said we would like to offer you a deal 2 years of dsl fastest speed they offer virus protect and Pc protection for about 40 dollars and they can take it out of my bank account each month. Still fighting on the other bill but at least I am back and I love my internet. I have missed you all and have a couple of blogs to get caught up on.

My Community

We have a Stryker unit in our community and our unit was deployed to Iraq for 9 months but was in Tn for 3 months before they were sent to Iraq. So these guys were away from their families for over a year. They have been coming back in waves starting Saturday they had two buses come in and our local fire departments and police and motorcycle group of Viatanam war veterans greeting them. Sunday they had 10 men come in and they still greeted them no matter how small the group is the community turns out to support the guys.

If you would like to see some of the pictures you can go to to check them out. It is nice to support our troops and welcome them back.

Bad blogger

I have been a bad blogger time I sit down to blog and its bedtime or supper needs done or someone is at the door or Pepper is trying to eat the mail carrier ( I bet they are glad there is a storm door between them and Pepper.) or the kids are threatening to kill each other or someone else. S is dealing with a bully and its not going well I have been in contact with the school principal seems like S went to punch this boys lights out and a teacher stopped her.

I don't agree with what S did but how about doing something about the boy that is bullying her our school district spent money on an anti bullying program how about putting it to use?

Lets see what else is going on Buford my sweet beagle decided to play retrieve the beagle the other night which caused me almost to fall luckily for him I didnt.

Mike has one more week of school left then he is taking a week off before starting work. It is nice to type that he has work (we think) and will be nice to have a steady income coming in. He also applied for his passport today.

Pixie is at doggie boot camp with my brother bubba learning not to jump on people which would be bad for me. That is about the only bad habit that pepper doesnt have.

Well that is all for right now hope everyone is having a good weekend.

As the saying goes its one step forward two steps back. Y'all are probably tired of hearing how much I miss my mom in law I know I am tired of typing it. I thought the paxil was helping and it was I was done crying I was starting to heal and be able to go hours without realizing how much I miss her.

Then yesterday happened my father in law asked if he could come out and we said sure anytime and he did and he bought presents. He is starting to part with some things of moms and she had made photo albums of the kids from when I was pregant to they were minutes old after they were cleaned she had the honor of being in the delivery room with me in fact so did my father in law till I realized he was there and kicked him out politely of course.

She took lots of pictures saved every drawing and calendars with milestones on them and this made me cry all over again and realize again how much I miss her. Some days I wonder if my heart will heal I am sure it will. Such a sweet gesture from a great person who loved her family and grandchildren.

Well it seems like my husband has a job!!! He accepted a offer today we talked over the weekend debated back and forth and he took the one I voted for yaaaaaay he likes it too. He will be home most weekends and kids can ride in the summer one at a time.

And I wasn't going to say anything cause I don't want to jinx or feel bad if I fail but I have scheduled a drivers test and yes I can somewhat parallel park. The test is two weeks away I am not going to give the date just yet.

Guess what I found a camera cord !!

old hair and ms peaches
will post more pictures tomorrow of peaches and pixie

Busy as a bee

The kids are back to school and we slowly are finding a routine I think. Pixie and the cats and dogs are adjusting (I hope) she is a hyper little bugger. But its been so busy around here Mike has 3 pre job hires so we need to make a choice I have put my opinion in and now are making a pro and con list.

A whole new world has opened for me being able to drive and its amazing I still need someone with me but I am building confidence and getting ready to take my test. It seems like the last three days there has been a lot of running and I get home to fix supper and relax for an hour and head to bed and start a new day but there is no more appts in Sept so maybe it will slow down a bit.

Hope everyone enjoys the holiday weekend and be safe.

Why I didnt drive when I was younger and an escapee

Okay today has been an interesting day I rode over to the drs with my brother his appt. He got admitted to the hospital hes fine they just want to do some tests and other stuff. That meant my mom had to bring me home cause I didnt have a licensed driver with me so I couldnt drive.

My mom says to me why dont you drive I said fine and she about drove me nuts I swear either I was going to slow or too fast or something and she had me nervous when I finally parked at my house so I think God or whoever is in charge was saving this from me when I was younger.

On to the escapee Mr Henry escaped the other night and had been missing for 2 days and we were worried cause he doesnt have claws and the other cats that are strays do but Mike saw him run under the house and with some tuna and coaxing Henry is safely back in the house where he can become a spoiled cat again. We had been looking all hours for him hoping he would run into the house.

Tomorrow is a busy day with more driving but it will be with Karen my sis in law.

OH and a sidenote today would have been my mil's 65 birthday I woke up said a little prayer to her called my fil to say thinking about you as it has to be a hard day for you and he said thank you and he said its going to be a hard day for you (talking about me) but it was bearable (credit due to paxil I think).

Just call my house a zoo

How do we find these animals? Tonight we rescued a pug dog for those keeping count thats 7 cats and 3 dogs. She is almost a year old and needs spayed I also need to learn the word no or be more convincing when I say no.

Oh yeah the 7 cats that live in the house so not thrilled with me or Pixie. Pictures coming as soon as I can remember to look or buy a camera cord 2 trips to walmart and still no cord see no wonder why we keep acquiring animals I forget how many are home to start with.

Thats all for now its 9 17 and I still havent eaten so I am leaving to eat.
