Yard Beautiful?

Mmmmm, some really good, kick butt BBQ sounds delish right now!  I just don't think my tummy could handle it today. :(    Maybe by this weekend ... YUM.

I don't know about the rest of you, but my plants are not blooming much this year, except for Dad's rosebush.  I suppose after the drought last year, I should be happy that I still have plants that are alive.  The magnolia trees in my neighborhood are in full bloom.  The look and smell beautiful.

I love spring and coming home to a freshly mowed yard ... love the smell of fresh cut grass.  Our grass and weeds are growing so fast this year because of all the rain, that the yard has to be mowed every two weeks.  That my son does not like as he is our current mower of the yard.

Last year we made some new flower beds around the trees in the front yard; but never planted anything.  I need to get on that pretty soon.  There are just so many things to get done.  My first priority though is getting everything together for my yard sale in 1-1/2 weeks.

Thank goodness my sister is coming to help.

Grrrrrrr!  Had a wee bit of an argument yesterday evening.  Those of you with medical issues understand that extreme emotions can cause a "flare".

Hello Flare.

I seem to have some anger residue left over from yesterday and I'm trying hard to slough it off.  But, I'm feeling grumpy, gripey and hurting all over.

I really just want to lie down somewhere for just a bit.  There is nowhere to do that here in my building and my son has my car today.

I'm going to try to lie down when I get home and have everyone leave me the heck alone.  In my household, yeah right.

I have outpatient procedures scheduled for Monday the 30th and Wednesday the 2nd.  Until them I'm just hanging out being miserable.

I'm so tired of being miserable and I'm ready for them to figure out what's going on.  I can't believe I even typed that, like I'm ready for something ELSE to be medically wrong with me ...

Well other than CRAZY that is.

I hope that all of ya'lls weekend is fabulous.

By the way if you see me and my face looks like this...

He's Crazy

Monday the 16th was our 3 year anniversary.  I really didn't think about the long term when we first met.  I'm glad we did and I'm happier and more at peace than I have been in years.

Every day he tells me how much he appreciates me and that he loves me ...

Like Crazy.

Every Day.

To The Dawgs!

Not the best picture in the world, but this is our Gentleman Jake.  He wasn't having much fun this day.  He was chained in the front yard while my son was mowing the back.  I hope to get some better pictures of the animals soon.

Jake was on my mind today.  I was up and down last night unable to sleep and he was whining because he could hear me and wanted company.  I have not felt well and He has been a bit neglected lately.  I have not been able to go outside as much and lavish him with love and good skritches.

Ahhhh Naaahhhhh!

Just when things were looking up and I had a bit of moola in the bank, I have to file a claim on my car insurance.  Can we say $500 deductible?

It seems that a local doe decided to commit suicide by car.  She came out of nowhere, poor thing.  Now she's gone and my car has some cosmetic work to be done.

I switched insurance to a lower priced one about the time my son started driving.  Man those rates for teenage boys are crazy.  So anyway, I've never filed a claim with this insurance before and was hoping for the best.  So far it's been pretty good. 

Called insurance last night... check
Adjuster called me this morning... check
Appraiser called me this afternoon... check
Appraiser gave me estimate, list of preferred shops and a check... CHECK!

I need to call the adjuster and set up time and date to drop off car and pick up rental and then it's up to the body shop.  We will see, we will see.

It has been a long, exhausting week of little sleep and continuous hurting.  This is what I plan on doing as soon as I get home tonight (see pic above).  I have a fairly busy weekend to work my way through and I plan on being lazy tonight.

I just pray that I can sleep.  O_O
