February 28, 2013

It is so cold outside!!!! I have my bedroom heater going full blast. I am going to buy one of those heaters with a thermostat when they go on sale. I will probably be using heat all through March.

I am looking for more prepping supplies once the camper is sold. I am defiantly getting a generator. I need that more than anything. Going to buy Leo one too. I will be ok here as long as I have food, water, and my big dogs.

I hope we have a pleasant weekend. I need to swap out my supplies in the Volvo and load the Mitsubishi since I am driving it for now.i try to do it the first Saturday in the month. I will be changing my clothes in the bags for summer soon.

February 18, 2013

I decided to go on and sell the camper and get my money back. My brother didn't think it was a good idea. I need that money to prep at home. If I buy in Arkansas, I will buy land with a home on it.

Leo got my Volvo boosted off and we got it to the house. It is the alternator so Leo got the black truck boosted off and I am gong to drive it till the car gets fixed.

I rode to Clarksdale this afternoon to Wal Mart and ate lunch at the Elks Lodge. Not much going in but needed to get out.

Maggie, Kincade, and I rode the back roads this evening to make sure the battery was charging. It is good so far.

I hope this week is a good one. I am not going to put up with any mess at work next week. I need to get my work done and go home at 5:00 pm.

I don't think I am prepping like I should. I got enough for maybe two weeks. I need to buy some plastic tubs to store things. I am spending money on things that I need years from now. Going to stop that and prep for what's going on now.

February 16, 2013

Today is just been one of those days. My Volvo broke down on the side of the road a few miles from where I live. My brother had to help me get off the side of the road and give me a ride back home. My black truck has a dead battery and it wouldn't crank. I'll charge the battery as much as I could and I didn't leave it on the charger like I should've and it's dead.. I don't let how to get it off the side of the road.

I got my camper delivered this afternoon. I really like it but is just so cold I can't get out there to put stuff up and see what all it has to offer. I am now wishing I didn't buy it. It is just too cold outside to enjoy it.
I think I will enjoy the camper when he gets a little warmer. I don't know how to hook up the electricity and I don't have an adaptor plug.I got go look for one and Walmart so I can start using it at least just to practice in. I want to be a prepper but I think I spent to much money and still can't move it.

Bruce was supposed to come over this afternoon but he never showed up. I called him and that's when he finally told me that he wasn't going to be able to make it. I wish he would've told me that a few hours ago. I just need to give me some tools and learn how to work on the little things by myself.

I think I'm going to camp out in my living room tonight. It's nice and warm in here with the propane heat. My living room is a mess but I don't mind. I'm going to watch TV and enjoy the warm because my bedroom sure is cold. I hope I can sleep good with all these cats and dogs on top of me and fighting.

Found out that the new Obama Care plan starts in October and not next year. Christie looked it up and for me alone, my government insurance will cost $385.00 a month. I don't clear $300.00 a week at Saf T Cart so I am going to be in a lot of trouble.

I paid on my new camper yesterday. Will pay the balance due this afternoon. I could've used that money elsewhere but I think I made a good choice. I still have my SUV that can sell. I can always use the camper if I have to leave here and find a job.

I am really worried about this economy and yes I am scared. I feel that is useless to save the American dollar. Best to buy silver and gold. I wish I had the money to buy up some gold and silver. I am going to check with the banks and see what they have in coins.

Happy Valentines Day!

Worked the St Elizabeth draw down Friday night. Made $136.00 in tips so I was happy.

Saturday I rode to Cleveland to eat lunch and shop. Went by Adrienne's shop and looked around. I went to the pawn shop to see all the animals . I found a ferret for $100.00. Couldn't get him that day but I hope to get him when I get my income tax. He is so cute.

Walmart in Cleveland is nasty! The parking lot was dirty and both ladies restrooms were horrific. I also blame nasty customers too. The store was crowded and only a few cashiers open.

I didn't get to church this morning. I woke up at 8:30 am. My back is hurting and I didn't have time to get ready.

I am going to dye my hair this afternoon. My grey is really showing up and it looks bad. I am going to get it cut Friday if Joan has an opening. Think I am going to keep it short so it will be manageable this summer. I am to old for long hair. I want a perm in it this summer.

I hope spring gets here soon. This cold weather is getting me down. I used to love the winter but not anymore. Getting to old to get out in it. I like the spring, summer, & fall!!!

My patio is looking so good. Going to move my patio table & chairs out there today. Still a little cold but I can go out there and sit by my fireplace. Going to buy a propane grill in a few weeks. I will save on my light bill by being outside most of the time. If I can seal my patio in, I will run electricity out there. It's going to take a lot of money but well worth it.

My brother, Jordan, and Mason came out today. We cooked out, Mason shot his gun, make a fire in the fire pit, and ate out on the patio. Great time with family.
