weather it felt like July the whole month of June. Things have
gotten complicated over the past few days. Mom's arm that she
uses for dialysis has stopped working for her. We are seeing a
surgeon in the morning to see what measures he wants to take
to help her get back on her schedule. In the meantime, she is
recovering from her bout with this illness that hospitalized her
last week. When it rains it pours it seems in her case lately.
Looks like it will be a busy 4th of July here for us trying to get
things straightened out. All your prayers will be appreciated
greatly by Mom and Sis and I. Will update you all when I get
HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND AND
SAFE HOLIDAY TOO.

just did not even think of providing for us. The backgrounds and themes are unlimited here in many different ways and I like that. I do love to "change my skin" so to speak and do it a lot. Coming up with new things keeps things fresh
and that makes me more interested in blogging. I have to admit that since things changed over to Spaces I have spent less time checking out the blogs there than I used to do. I make an effort to find those I really like the most and then move on
to other things. When you visit me here from now on, I hope to keep it creative
When you stop by next time please make sure to feed Brandi for me..he
spends so many hours alone here he could use a treat! ; )
It's a CRIME!
That is what it feels like to me. Charging so much for one tiny item in the store. I know we used to pay pennies for gum and now a pack of 5 sticks costs 25 cents at the very least. Inflation is the culprit.. oh yeah it has to be. I mean the stick is the same size in some cases and tastes the same, but there must be some new ingredient that makes it cost more. Penny candy is so rare
these days except for some specialty stores. Recently I went to buy some cough expectorant. PLAIN kind no frills. I had to check three stores to find any. When I did, I bought the most generic brand as the real brand was almost twice the price.
I stood waiting to pay behind 4 children and their mother. What were they doing? They were purchasing PENNY CANDY. The counter in this small pharmacy had
a whole display of penny candy. I watched as they tried to decide which kind they wanted as their red-faced mother apologized for them taking so long. I smiled and said I remembered those days..let them have fun. Oh how I wanted to whip out my camera and take their picture. The joy on their faces as the lady behind the counter placed the candies in a small paper sack. When they left all smiles and
giggling I told the clerk it was fun watching them. She told me that was precisely why they do it.
DID I BUY ANY? What do you think?

we know what it is. WHY is there so much of it?? I mean is my head completely
empty and there are so many vacant spots in there that the stuff just multiplies
by the minute? Does some gremlin come in the night and place some kind of spell on me while I sleep so that the next day there is more of the stuff? While I have blown my nose for a week now..something must be going on. It can't just keep materilizing, or can it? I must read up because the colors coming from my head and sinus cavities are so varied. One day it looks like I snorted milk through my nose and the next it turns to a nice mellow yellow. Yeah I know that color means some kind of infection. How long can an infection last? Apparently, a long time even with medications. All I know is I have seen more than my share this week, andI won't bore you with what color is coming up from my nether lung areas. THAT might just scare ya!! AHHH the spring-summer cold it is a vicious animal.

and pops..is still hanging in there despite needing so many repairs.
Mom refuses to use drapes to keep out the cold etc..so we have shades.
She informed me that yesterday morning when she raised the shades
to our new neighbors..you know, the ones I spoke of moving in..
A MAN WAS STANDING ON THE PORCH PEEING ON THE PORCH!!!!
YES, you read that right. He was NOT peeing over the railing of
the porch..he was peeing ON the PORCH!!! EWWWW..
I was shocked..she was appalled and ready to call the cops!!
LOL I told her that there was nothing we could do but call
the landlady (who doesn't live here in town) and let her know what kind
of people she has living there. She doesn't care, I bet..as long as she
gets her money. YES they have a bathroom and YES it is working
no one else PEES on the porch. She said he left the doorway and just let it
fly and then went back in the house. Could he not find a cup or a
bucket inside the house??? I mean so many alternatives to doing
such a thing. I said to her..ARE YOU SURE?? She said YES..I know what
one looks like and I know when it is taking a leak!!! I said did you see
the PEE?..she said YES!! LOL By this time she was getting ticked at me for
questioning her. So I told her to call the landlady and inform her if
she wanted to..I didn't see it and I wasn't going to. If it happens
over and over again.I will but not for one incident.
That is not a good thing to see in the morning before your coffee and
breakfast I agree! Some people just blow my mind on why they
do the things they do. Quit trying to figure it out, I say, it will only
drive you crazy.

waiting for me..I thought maybe someday
I will need it for something.. why delete it?
So here I am joining in with so many others
who are leaving MSN Spaces for other venues.
If you haven't visited me before let me tell you
what I my philosophy is ...
I firmly believe that you are where you are supposed
to be and are who you are supposed to be the minute
you were born. Part of GOD'S PLAN for us all...He doesn't
make mistakes so that is just that. I don't look back and
wonder,I instead look ahead and be grateful to be alive and
wonder what it yet to be.
AND SO IT GOES ON.. WAS BORN IN 2004 FROM A SAYING THAT WAS USED TO ME EVERY DAY WHEN I VISITED AN ELDERLY WOMAN I WORKED FOR.. WHEN I WOULD COME IN THE DOOR EACH DAY.. SHE WOULD SAY .. ” WELL…YOUR BACK!!.. AND SO IT GOES ON” I FOUND, OVER THE YEARS THAT IT DOES GO ON AND ON.. NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS.. THE WORLD WILL GO ON UNTIL THE END OF TIME…
This blog is about my thoughts and my attempts to write what things interest me and my daily life here on planet Earth. I hope it interests you in some way too. I believe that God knows what is going on at all times and ours is not to doubt it, because he makes no mistakes.
