Was Easter only last Sunday? My head is still swimming with everything that happened last week and I am still tired and sad to the core. When I took the dogs out last night after dark I saw 3 rats in the barn and almost screamed out loud. Hazel and Telly didn’t even act interested – what happened to my Rat Terminator Tag Team?
The wind has blown and gusted even to 60 mph in the past two days and last night there was a tornado warning for Garner! I was at Becky’s house 22 miles away so wasn’t even home to go to the basement – and Rick didn’t go either. At least the wind switched directions today and we could once again have the dog door open.
I’m still working in the quilt shop putting things back in order – it’s coming but still not done. As I’m sorting through things I’m creating a tub or multiple tubs of things going on our next sale. This wasn’t what I was planning to be doing right now but the weather is not cooperating for yard work either. My back, legs, feet and hips are begging for more down time – ha! I do forget that I’m no longer 35 years old. My mom warned me but I didn’t believe her.
Okay, now it’s time to vent! Isn’t that what I said this blog is for? Complaining, venting, whining – and all my like-minded friends will let me do it. Here’s the issue. Why can’t I just buy gas anymore? I want to put the gas in and pay for it with cash or check at the register. No, I don’t want to use a credit card. No, I don’t know how much it will take to fill up. So I finally convince the cashier to accept my $60 cash and I go back out to my car and put $60 worth in and no, it’s not full. Do I go through all of this again? She is reluctant to run a refund through if I overpay, only if I were using a credit card could she put the balance back on my card. OH, GOOD GRIEF! I am too old and tired for this nonsense.
And it never ends – had the well company come last Friday to check our iron filter as we’ve started having rust stains in the toilet upstairs. Another surprise – we need a new iron filter – $1450! I’m almost afraid to get up in the morning. What will happen next?
It’s been a discouraging past couple of weeks – I just need to rest up and hope all my aches and pains go away – it’s not easy to admit I’m getting too old to keep up. Tomorrow is a new week – I’m looking forward to getting outside!
Would those of you who recently had back surgeries please let us know how you’re doing? And Pattie – we’re still thinking about your hard days ahead. Jo – did you have a blizzard? Betty K – did you get bad weather, too? Anybody in the fire areas? I think and worry about all of you – just write a quick answer in the comment section, please.
Thinking of you who have recently lost beloved pets.
