January 30, 2013

We had another big storm last night. I was lucky again. My lights flickered once & that was it. The wind howled and it rained and hailed. Sitting on the porch drinking coffee and don't see any damage but its still dark out.

I carried Leo to his eye appoint yesterday. We had a good time. Glad he didn't have to get anther shot.

The sun is coming out now and all I see are fallen pecan limbs and plenty of rain water. My vehicles are ok and I don't see any roofing materials.

January 28, 2013

Today was a great day. Sun shining and wind blowing. Work even went well and here lately that is not normal.

Went to The Guardians meeting last night. Only 6 people showed up. Better 6 than none at all. I am a prepper but not to an extent where I can last for months in what I have. I am going to stock up on stuff when I get my income tax and sell my truck. The thing I need the most is a big generator. I would mount it outside by my meter but it might get stolen. I don't want the weather to mess it up either.

January 27, 2013

Yesterday was such a sad day. Tonya Chaney Fraizer was laid to rest. I went to the visitation. Saw a lot of people I went to school with that I haven't seen in years. Sad that it had to be at a friends funeral.

I went to my pastors wife's memorial yesterday too. It was in the next town. She fought a long hard battle with COPD.

Last night we celebrated Jessica's birthday a few days early. She and her friend Shelby are going to the Wolfechase Mall next Saturday. I can't go with them because its my "bug out" weekend. We had a good time and great food.

January 26, 2013

Woke up this morning @ 5:00 am. I went on and got up & made coffee. My head is hurting right now. My ankle is still hurting but not as bad as yesterday. I am getting old and I need health insurance.

I am going to Hernando to my pastors wife's memorial. She fought a long, hard battle with COPD for years. She is with Jesus now.

I was going to carry my Maggie Belle with me today. Wanted to go in Petco and let her look around. I don't want to leave her in the car while I am in stores. One weekend we are going up there and spent the day together.

I am trying to decide on a place to "bug out" to next weekend. Arkansas is a good place to go because they don't have a lot of Democrats in the Ozarks. May not go that far but Forrest City, Stuttgart, and Hot Springs are on my list. The fun of not making a plan ahead of time is what it's all about. Don't really have a lot of money to go but that's all part of it too.

The Guardians will meet again on Monday night. I am excited about being part of it.
My bug out weekend is to help the group find a safe haven if anything happens. I am gong to take another trip in March when I have a little extra money.

January 25, 2013

Today was one of those days. I want to leave so bad. I need health insurance and a retirement plan. If I had all that , I would be a little more comfortable. It's not the work that makes me mad but the ungrateful people who want more DVD more but give less. I don't like to feel trapped and I am going to move on.

I did go back my the U S D A and filled out more paperwork . I am going to go ahead with my dream this spring even if I don't get the loan. I will have enough money once my income tax comes in and I sell my truck.

Rest in Peace Tonya Chaney Fraize

I just heard that one of my friends passed away. She died of complications from the stomach bypass surgery that she had over 20 years ago. Life is just to short to suffer.

Rest in peace Tonya.

January 20, 2013

Great night with Bruce. We made a nice fire in the fire pit and enjoyed each others company. We always have fun when we are together.

This morning, I will go to church and probably run to Clarksdale to the NRA meeting @ the Shriners Club and then to The Elks Club. Sunday afternoons are normally boring. Glad the elks club is open on Sunday.

Maggie is enjoying her new cut. The tangles were pulling on her and it her miserable. I am going to have her done once a month to keep her pretty and comfortable.

I hope to get my income tax in soon. I need that extra income for my garden project this spring. I see a lot of things I want but will only buy what I need.

January 19, 2013

Thursday and Friday went good at work. I am still looking for a job with insurance and retirement. I love Saf T Cart but I love Ruby too.

I am carrying Maggie Belle to get her first grooming this afternoon. She will look funny at first but will look much better a few weeks after the grooming. I will get her done once a month since it will make her feel better. I also bought a brush to maintain her daily.

I have been on my period for 3 weeks today. This morning I am really cramping. Hope I can start taking the shot every other month instead of every three months. Feel bad this morning.

January 17, 2013

I am finally getting into the 20th century. I got an IPhone!!!!!!!!! I have owned several but never with service. It switches to WyFy whenever it's available so I won't be using my data. I really like it.

Maggie is getting groomed Saturday. I hope it won't hurt her. She is so tangly. I will have to get her groomed every month just so she will be comfortable.

January 14, 2013

Had a nice and quiet weekend.  I went to the auction friday night with my family and we all had a great time.  Saturday I babysat for the Young family.  Great time with those sweet kids.  Sunday I went to church & Sunday afternoon I headed to Clarksdale to buy groceries and stopped by the Elks Lodge to visit and had supper. 

The weather is very cold right now.  We were predicting bad weather for this morning but it changed to this afternoon on through tomorrow night.  I don't mind the cold as much as I mind the cold rain.  If we get ice; I sure dont want to lose power.  I am going to invest in a propane stove in the next few weeks for emergencies.  I have the hook up in my sunroom and I am going to get it installed as soon as I have the money.

My pastors wife Sue Cox passed away Friday morning.  I never got to meet her but I knew enough about her to know she was a good God fearing woman.   COPD is a bad disease caused by smoking and there is no cure.  All they can do is keep you comfortable.  Rest in peace Sue Cox!

Until then,

January 4, 2013

Today is better than yesterday i can for sure say that.  I have had a rough 2 months and it is really showing.  I cannot handle all the stress at work.  I dont know what I am going to do or just deal with it.  I am lucky because I do have options and I plan on using them in the next few months.  I have already made a few phone calls and I think I am doing the right thing for me.

I am staying home this weekend because of a short paycheck. I am glad I paid my bills last week because I think I have $10.00 to last me until next payday.  I am going to stay home and enjoy my home and sweet pets.



December 31, 2012 (New Years Eve)

New Years Eve started off good but ended very tragic.  I lost my little ferret Mocha Michelle New Years Eve afternoon.  I let one of my outside dogs inside and she was alone with Mocha for 15 minutes and killed her.  I haven't felt that much pain in a long time.  I loved her so much.  The other dogs have shunned Brandi for what she did and so have the cats. Not sure what I am going to do with Brandi but I will not be taking care of her anymore.
