APRIL 9, 2014 – APRIL 14, 2014
I did manage to get some stuff moved Monday while I waited for the gas man to come light my pilot and get my gas turned on. I will finish moving all the big stuff this weekend and will use the rest of this month to get it cleaned out and stuff thrown away and given away. I have a lot of stuff for sale too. I am ready to get it all out and start a new life where I am now.
My pipes were all busted at the new house. I even had busted pipes in the inside. The plumber came today and took care of all of it. The bill was high but it had to be done. I am going to try to pay them a little extra or pay for the lawn mowing to help them out. I want to be fair and help them as well.
I am still frustrated over moving and its taken its toll on me. I am ready to put all this behind me and start over. I know that I am going to downsize and get some stuff out of my house. One person does not need a lot. I can live off of very little and I plan on doing more with getting my house all fixed up.
My pipes were fixed when I got home. I am so glad because I can now start trying to live a normal life. I am getting some of my stuff from the old house a little at a time and try to sell off the rest of the stuff I don’t want. I don’t want a lot of baggage holding me back.
This weekend supposed to be really nice. I am looking forward to some nice sunshine and warm weather. The cold weather and I do not agree at all. I am going to enjoy this summer while it lasts.
This weekend is the Juke Joint Festival. I always look forward to the daytime festivities. I don’t care at all about the night time events going on. I have to get up early Saturday and help with the pancake breakfast for the Sunset Lions Club. I always enjoy doing that. I will walk the carnival after I finish helping with the pancake breakfast and go home.
I have always been kinda negative towards Clarksdale because of all the crime, lack of leadership, and all the people who wont work. I do know that there are good people still left in the town and they love their hometown. I try to be a little nicer and carefully express my own opinions. Sometimes its just hard to keep my mouth closed at times. I still live in Coahoma county so it’s not bad everywhere. Its just bad where there isn’t any leadership.
Easter is almost here. Time for a new beginning is how I look at it. The world changed when Jesus died on the cross. It brought about a new change for all the world. We can now choose to except Him as our Savior and have everlasting life.
I had a flat on my truck Friday night so I couldn’t help with the pancake breakfast Saturday morning. My friend Becky came by and gave me a ride to my car so I can get some stuff done. I followed her to Clarksdale where I got some gas, went to eat at Atzimbas and walked the flea market. Great time at the juke joint festival but I didn’t buy anything.
My house is almost packed up and moved out. I have the rest of this month to get stuff out. I am keeping my electricity on so I can get my stuff sold. I hope to get my little freezer moved this weekend so I can have some food in the house. I have been getting out what I need as I go.
I have a lot to be thankful for and I am never going to forget that. I have more than enough and I am grateful. Life has been good to me and I know that now. I just need to find something I like to do and go with it. I am just not happy around here and I won’t be until I find my place in life.
I am going to my brothers for Easter this coming weekend. I am going to go to my church EasterSunday morning and leave going to Leo’s. We have an Easter egg hunt after church but I won’t stay for it this year. I was going to go to Leo’sSaturday night and spend the night and go to church with them Sunday nightbut I wanted to be in my own little church Easter morning.
We had a bad storm last night and lost power for a few hours. I am prepared so I was taken care of. I have a fan that runs off of USB and one that runs off of batteries. I was still cool and comfortable last night. I have Entergy in Lula and I can report an outage with my Iphone. I have to check on the old house this afternoon so I can see if I had a power outage. I am the only one on that line so there is no way of them knowing if I don’t call.
