Easter Sunday

Happy Easter! This morning I went to church and we had a wonderful Easter Sunday service. After church the children had an Easter egg hunt. I didn't get to stay long after church because I had to finish cooking. My family came over and all had a good lunch and enjoyed our day together. It was rainy and wet so we really didn't get to do much outside. We were all together and we had a good time and that's what counts.

I know a lot of people that that really don't know what Easter is or what it's all about.. I try to talk to them but they don't want to listen. I feel that I should be a witness to them but sometimes it is hard to get across to others when their heart is so against Jesus.

I saw a documentary on HBO this afternoon. It was about people living in poverty and not having enough to eat because they have lost their job or doctor bills have overwhelmed them. These people couldn't even get food stamps or any kind of government assistance. I just don't understand how our government works. They only help the ones who don't want to work and the ones trying to don't get anything. Sad world we live in.

Happy Easter!

March 8, 2013

I am taking off today to take care of some business and enjoying my day. Work is getting to me and I need a break. I was going to get my tooth cut out but my insurance won't pay until July. I am still taking the day off because that's my plan. I don't change my plans only for family. Work is getting to me anyway. One day it is great and the rest of the week is horrible.

I woke up at 2:30 am this morning. It is almost 5:00 am and I am wide awake. I might go on and get up. Folgers coffee is calling my name. I am kinda hungry too.

I found two puppies on the road Wednesday night. I took them and going to find homes for them. I have always had a big heart for animals.


March 27, 2013

Today it's been another one of those days! I'm not very happy at work and I turn my two weeks notice in yesterday. I will stay until they find someone because I don't want to leave on hard feelings because its bad business. I just wish they had the decency to find me some help or or have someone take the workload off of me. The girls up front are on Facebook,twitter,or looking on the Internet. It is just not fair and they don't pay me enough to put up with it. Time for a change!

I'm looking forward to my garden this summer. I think it's going to do me so much good and I will make money at it. I need the extra money to pay for the extra fuel and health care that Obama is causing. I don't know what I'm going to do come October 1. There is no way I can afford Obama care. I'm just gonna have to pay the fine or find a job that offers health insurance. I didn't vote for him and I'm sure not going to pay him.

I'm sitting outside on my patio watching the embers blaze in my outdoor fireplace. My little dogs and cats are surrounded me. I feel so peaceful right now and I'm just so happy. When I am out here; I don't have a care in the world. I am just at peace. This evening is so beautiful! This week has been so cold that I just freeze at night and even during the day. I'm so ready for some beautiful spring weather.

I doubt I will be going anywhere this weekend. I need to save my money and try my best to get my rent paid and my light bill. I don't want to go in debt trying to live and still have to worry about what's going on with this economy. A 43-year-old woman should not have to be worried but I am.

Palm Sunday

We had a beautiful palm Sunday church service this morning. I really enjoyed it and I think everyone else did too. I wish everyone in this world could find Christ so they can all live happily ever after when we pass on. Jesus has made such an amazing impact on my life and I have changed so much. I'm so happy that I am a Christian and I'm following in Christ's footsteps.

Weather was terrible last night. Every time it thundered; my house shook. I don't remember a storm as bad as the one we had last night. Today, the wind is blowing about 40 miles an hour. It is really bad outside. I could barely keep my truck in the road when I'm to town this afternoon.

I am hoping that I will either get a raise at work or be able to find another job. I need to make a little more money and a little work off of me. I love my job and all of the people I work for but it's time for a change. I don't stay at a place long unless they're paying me well and I have benefits. I am not paid well and I don't have any benefits. Time for a change.

Bruce called me yesterday afternoon. It was good hearing from him. We haven't really talked in over a week because he is been busy working and spending time with his son. I do miss him but he does need his space and he needs to be with the son as much as he can. I just hope he is not seeing another woman and trying to lead me on like you did 20 years ago. I do love him but I'm not in love with him so really doesn't matter. I just don't want to be hurt again like I was last time.

March 23, 2013

My chore jar is working out great. I look forward to it every morning when I take my vitamins. I wish I'd thought of this earlier because this has become a wonderful experience for me. I did little things even though it doesn't take me no longer than 20 to 30 minutes a day. I feel good about myself that I am trying to clean my house and keep it up during the week. I filled out my chore cards for next week this morning. I won't do any chores on Good Friday or Easter Sunday because that is the Lord's time. I will be with my family on those days and my house will be clean before they get here.
I didn't give up anything for Lent this year because I don't believe like that anymore. I was never a good Catholic anyway but I am a great Christian Methodist.

I have been doing two chore cards on Saturdays and Sundays this month in honor of Easter. I also enjoy it and I thought this was a good way to show my love for Christ by doing a little extra work.

I made my first sale on Watkins yesterday. My friend Michelle wanted to order four bottles of their famous vanilla. I hope this works out for me because I really like doing this and I need to make a little extra money to help with bills this summer. I hope to do Arbonne as well. It's a great company and the rewards will be great if I can get into the right circle and find some good people to buy from me. I decided to sell Watkins because the started up is fairly inexpensive and the product sell itself. I want to sell make up like Mary Kay or BeautiControl and possibly Tupperware if I can get in at a good price.

I am worried about this economy and the new Obamacare tax that will go into effect in October. I doubt that Saf T Cart will be able to afford health insurance for their employees or they would've offered it by now. I'm going to have to look for another job that has benefits and a little more money just to make a living. Obama has ruined this country and I think the Democrats are realizing it. Well I say the Democrats who work are realizing it. The ones who don't work have no idea what's going on and they could care less.

I have been gloomy since November about my job, this country ,extra taxes, and making a living in general. I don't have a lot of bills like most people do because everything I have is paid for. I do have a Walmart credit card that I need to get paid off and then I will be basically debt-free other than basic living expenses. I will be glad when I get my loan paid off at work too. I think I owe around $300 now.

I decided to go on and sell the camper this morning. Jessica needs that money more than anyone. She wants to do something with herself and get an education so she won't have to do without when she grows up. I know that my brother can afford to put her through Mississippi State so I'm going to help her as much as I can. I'm so thankful that she is smart and did get a partial scholarship. I'm so proud of her!

I watch Little House on the Prairie because it reminds me of my childhood when my daddy was alive and it also gives me ideas on living with very little and still thriving. I love the show because it is great and I've learned so much. They lived back in the pioneer days without electricity, gas, automobiles, and fancy things. I want to live like that one day and still thrive. I really don't care about material things even though I have a lot of them.

I bought the camper to use if I ever have to leave this area and find a better job. I would at least have a place to live and it is paid for. I don't mind living in the 27 foot camper because it is a nice self-contained and in excellent shape. My goal is to move to the Ozarks and make Arkansas my home so I can make a better living for myself and have nice things. I'm only in the Mississippi Delta because of my family because they need me right now.

I don't think I could kill animals for food. That is my only problem with being self sufficient and they live a self-contained life. I could do without electricity and automobile gas if I had firewood, a rechargeable car that ran off of solar power, and a good horse. I think I would be much happier like that than I am now.

I got my yard cleaned for spring today. It looks so good. I am going to spray the clover and kill them so I won't have to mow any time soon. I can't afford to keep paying when I don't have to.

I am going to start saving a little money out of every check. I might do it in change and keep it in one of those plastic bottles that the spring water comes in. I may go back to the envelop system too. It always worked for me.

March 20, 2013 First day of Spring

Today is the first day of spring but I can't tell because I have my heater running in my bedroom. I was hoping it would get warm soon and I can start using my patio and front porch. I'm so ready to start my garden, get my yard cleaned, and start enjoying myself.

This cold weather is really really getting me down. I wish it would warm up because I just can't handle anymore of this cold and gloomy weather. I'm going to invest in a tanning bed this summer as soon as I get the money so I can have sunlight throughout the year. They always say that sunlight is what people need so they wont be depressed. I know I always feel better when I am in the sun.

I think I have a leak in my propane tank. I had around 40% a week and a half ago and I haven't been using the propane and now it is completely ran out all the way. I am going to call Mac this week to see about him putting in an electric hot water heater. I like the propane because I can always have warm water in the event of an emergency but I think I'll be just as good with an electric. i can boil water if I need to. I am just going to have to boil water for a bath every night and washed my hair in the sink. It is not going to be bad since its warming up.
I want to have Easter Sunday at my house again this year. I'm going to talk to Christie & Leo about making plans early. I already have a ham and a few things in the freezer. I like to entertain at home. I hope that it won't rain so the kids can have an Easter egg hunt outside. For the past few years and is always rained & the kids never could have a egg hunt outside.

Better run.

March 19, 2013

I had an interesting weekend. Some thugs were trying to scope out the house. Maybe I was just imagining things or just overprotective but I was really scared. My friends on Facebook were great supporters since I live out here by myself. It is also a good way to document things that happen.

The sheriffs department is not going to do much out here. I called them several times over the period of four years and they have never shown up. I'm going to call my supervisor today and make a complaint on them if the service department doesn't do anything about this. I just don't understand what they won't come out here in at least talk to me and see if they can help me. I want to document in case something ever happens that I wouldn't be blamed for it.

Work went well Monday. I wish all days would go as smooth as they did yesterday. Debra was out with her dad and Chris was out sick. It was just Debbie Courtney Anna and me. I went back and forth from the shipping department to the office all day yesterday. Jim saw that we were shorthanded and he paid for our lunch.

It stormed most of Monday. I heard that two 18 wheelers were turned over on hwy 49. Don't think anybody was hurt.

Had a great time with Lori and Ernie last night. Chili's was great. Haven't been there in a while. I want to go back again. We went to Lowe's when we left Chili's and looked around. We all came back here and sat around the campfire and told stories. We are going to do that again soon.

I think I am going to like this new time change. It gets dark at 5:00 pm but I can live with it. Hope my battery holds up going back and forth in the Volvo. I am going to try driving it for a while and use the truck when I go out of town. I drive it to Friars Point yesterday and didn't have any trouble.

March 4, 2013

I started a new site on Facebook that teaches emergency preparedness. I am going to work on adding more members tomorrow but its hard to do it on my iPhone. If I can help one person then I feel I have done something.

Maggie and I are sitting in the camper and hanging out. It's so peaceful in here. I am going to spend the night in here this weekend if its not to cold. I love this camper but I know I can't keep it. My family needs the money more than I need this camper.

March 2, 2013

We had a few flurries last night and some this morning. It is 33 degrees outside and I am freezing! I am getting depressed with all this cold weather we are having. Ready for spring!

Obama and his Obamacare are really getting me down. I can't afford $385.00 a month for his health care. I am hoping that I can change jobs soon with healthcare and better pay. I barely scrape by as it is now. Something has got to give soon.

I signed up to sell Watkins Friday. I doubt I will make a lot selling it but I am trying to sell things to make a little money. I am either going to sell Beauticontrol or Mary Kay when the camper gets sold. Need a little business going on the side to keep a little money coming in.

Work has been good this past week. It's all about control over there. Everybody is family so it's hard to be promoted or even get a raise. I am still going to be leavings as soon as I can.
