I will be observing My blogs anniversary on April 4th. But my question is what is happening to the blog community? So many have pulled out or quit. Hardly anyone posts any more. Rarely a comment. I am beginning to think that my blog is not working. Not that this life I live is so interesting to follow. I really do not blog for followers, but I do blog to follow. I have yet to get any scathing comments. One of my favorite blogs is Saving 4 Later and I just tried to pull her up and I was denied. Are people really getting that many bad comments, that they feel they have to limit their access? It is a shame!
The shop got busier yesterday. I will have work to do when I get back from Twin Falls. I was able to get the medical papers yesterday and I faxed them this morning, I just called and they were accepted so it looks like I will not have to pay that last big doctor bill and the $50.00 copay I pay for injections will also be paid. Every little bit helps. I think I will have about $80.00 to leave with hubby. I already took care of B. She has $50.00 for gas and groceries. I will fill the truck before I leave and Hubby will have to fill it at least once before I get back, so I have met all my financial goals that way. I remember I used to just leave town and write a bad check for gas, okay a check that went into the overdraft account which is like a credit card. I would have no money, maybe $20.00 in cash and I would just use the credit card at will. A trip like this could cost at least $1000.00 with shopping. Now do that several times a year and see where it gets you.
I have so changed my mind set, that the last year I have come home with money. I am also very careful about what I buy. I go with a plan, and if I don't find what I want I don't buy anything.
So When I get back, it will be April and I will soon very soon be able to pay off that CC. I am so close. By April 10th I will only have the vehicle loans and the house payment. I am so excited.
Out My Window: Yesterday it was cold and rainy, then about 1 o'clock I went out back to check on the chickens and gather eggs. It was warm sun shiny about 70 beautiful blue sky. Within minutes a black cloud raced and I mean raced in. It was one of the darkest scariest clouds Dorothy (wizard of Oz) and I have ever seen. Remember I grew up in the Dakotas. I have a healthy respect for dark clouds. Anyway a huge thunder clap and hail and rain like no tomorrow. 1/2 an hour later.... Beautiful warm blue sky! Then overcast and rain. Chickens laid a record amount of eggs. I think they were scared out of them! Hubby came home and said it was one of the few times he has been chased out of the woods by a storm cloud. If you don't like the weather wait a 1/2 an hour.
I have a photo shoot this afternoon for the Cinderella poster. I want it done by the time I get back so it can get distributed and I can get the TV commercial done. Then it will be costume nightmare time.
Well, I will be on the road tomorrow for about 13 -14 hours. Will drive to pick Mom up in Missoula, Montana, That will take at least 4 hours. I will rest for an hour and then start over the pass by Hamilton into the Saw Tooth Mountains into Idaho down to Twin Falls. That will take about 7 hours. I will have to stop more often for Mom as she is almost 80. I think this will be our last road trip together. She just does not travel well any more. Even flying has become a trial for her. I will enjoy this while I can.
Have a great and productive day! and let's all try to be a little nicer, a little less judgmental, a little more positive with each other, just in case it will make a difference.
