Proven nothing

So in the last month I have proven that I am incapable of keeping up with this.  By the time I get home from work, I'm too pooped to do anything. Then the weekend comes along and I have to work even harder at home to get everything done.  I am WAAAAAY to old for this nonsense!

Had a Dr. app't yesterday. Went really well, I may be able to discontinue taking the medicine for the diabetes!  Will know in about 6 months or so, unless my blood sugar continues to stay low, then it will be sooner.  Since I don't want to put the weight back on that I have lost, I will continue to eat the way I have been, boring though it may be, it is better for me in the long run.

I worked on Labor Day, was expecting to get holiday pay in my check, nope.  Wouldn't mind so much but  I worked the shift by myself, and I was extremely busy.  That will teach me to work holidays from now on!

Went garage saleing in Lester Prairie last weekend with Miranda and Lily.  Didn't find very much, but then I don't have a need for much of anything these days.  Next year's round of sales will be here sooner that you think.  The ECFE sale is on October 2nd at the new high school by Howard Lake.  Runs from 9 am until noon.  May go and check that out.  Maybe can find some neat things for Miss Lily an Little Claire.

October 10th everybody is coming here for Collin's birthday.  Still don't know what he wants to have for his meal or if he wants a cake or cream puffs with pudding filling. He's supposed to let me know, but the little bugger is in Chicago this weekend.  Hope they have a good time.

Not Dead Yet

Well, here I am again.  After I don't know how long a break.  Many things were happening all at once and I just couldn't get my mind wrapped around any of them.

Started out with the weekend we had Lily.  Great weekend by the way.  Arlen ended up in the hospital with a blood clot in his leg.  He was there the whole weekend.  My car decided to play the game of "Am I going to start or not?"  My Internet connection had to be fixed.  I still was going to the laundromat to do clothes.
All in all not a very good month.  Thank goodness that is over.

My Internet is back working, I have a different washer and dryer, Arlen still has the blood clot, my car for the most part is working pretty decent.

I have a couple of guns that I am going to sell to get some money to purchase a different vehicle.  I also plan on selling my Jeep so that I can get something fairly decent, if not decent, at least reliable.  There is a guy in Dassell that buys old cars and stuff.  Since mine still runs and everything except the cruise and the one back window work including the 4 wheel drive, I figure I should get a pretty decent price for it.

Wouldn't even be considering it, but the parts are getting harder to find and when I do find them, they are getting to be so expensive.  There are some pretty nice sounding vehicles out there.  Be nice of I could have the money by Thursday.  There is a foreclosure, police seizure and confiscation Auction that night.  Lots of cars, SUV's, vans, etc.  Probably won't though, oh well, so goes life.

This coming Wednesday my sister-in-law and I are going to the Apple Orchard for lunch.  We've never done anything like that before, so it should be interesting.  I also have never eaten out there.  I have heard that the food is pretty good.  Of course, now I have to watch what and how much I eat.    I can do it though.  That is my new mantra.  Just like the little engine that could.

I went through my closet and dresser and got rid of all the clothes that no longer fit.  2 30 gallon trash bags, 2 13 gallon bags and a few things in the regular garbage.  I usually do that twice a year to start with, but this time it wasn't just to get rid of things that I no longer wear or just didn't like anymore.  Why keep clothes that are 5 sizes to big around?  They were just taking up room.  Thank goodness that the Lester Prairie garage sale days are next weekend.  Time to replenish!

Enjoy the cooler weather!
