Oh no!!

My FIL just called!! My BIL Bruce fell off a ladder on to concrete & broke his elbow!! He's at the ER & is getting ready for surgery to put pins in!! Keep him in your Prayers Please!!
I'll update when I know more!

Yesterday was crazy!!

LOL I got to go on a service call!! Our on the rode tech doesn't work on Tuesday's. So I got to go, this lady has been having trouble staying online. So the tech was supposed to swap out the ethernet cable last time he was out there. Well he didn't. So I get a bunch of cables & take a ethernet card too just in case!! LOL this lady was crazy!! She was nice one minute than cursing at me the next?? Kept excusing herself to use the bathroom like every 2 seconds?? I think she was nipping the bottle!! LOL Anyway it was the ethernet card that was bad so I swapped it out.I go to reset the earthlink modem & wireless router & she tells me she has the papers on how to do that.Off she goes blipper blabbering & comes back 2 seconds later yelling she shouldn't have to look for those papers I should know how to do that?? I was about to tell her I didn't need them but just kept my mouth shut!! Got her up and running. Than I had to make sure her laptop worked plus her networked printer! Than she wanted all this other free work & all I wanted to do was get out of there!! She has 4 huge cats & their litter boxes were in this room I was in & ewwwwwww! So I told her I can only do the work that was on the call back work order! Yippee for quick thinking!! I was trying to keep my cool, LOL!!Than she wants a hug before I could leave??!!! Crazy!!!

Then I had the yard sale meet too! I had sold this globe/bar thingy last week & she didn't let me know when she was going to come get it?? It had to be picked up here, cause it needed to be taken apart to get out the door! And I wasn't going to take it apart & lug it up there in case she was a no show. So she called & came & got it about 7:30. Yippee got that huge monster thing outta my living room!!

Question: What do you get, when you mix GPS with PMS?

Answer: A crazy woman who will find you!

Hello Friends!

Hi all Had a busy day!!
I was up with the chickens went out & looked at the lawn mower??? Ughhhh there's no help for it! The mesh part that covers the fly wheel got mangeled & I found a ball bearing on top of the deck. It's way over my head!
So I borrowered my neighbor's mower & got the front & back cut!! Weed wacked with my 3 dollar wacker that I had problems with it from the get go!! LOL what do you want for 3 dollars! So the third time the string broke in like 10 minutes I screamed Arggggggggg!! My neighbor yelled are you alright!! I yell back yes! I march down to the trash can waiting for pick up & smartly slam it in there! Ugggghhhhhhhhhhh it was HOT too! Than I had to clean up & go meet someone from the yard sale site I sold a sewing machine!! Yippie!! Came back & changed again, went back out & wacked a bunch of wayyyyyyyyy over grown bushes down a bit Man did that feel good!

I need my baby quilt finished for the shower on Sat???? Ackkkkkkk It's not even on the frame yet, but the top is done!
My batteries for the camera are charging so hope to get pictures up soon!

Good Wed. Morning!

Wow has our weather been kooky!! It has rained buckets coming down so fast our sandy soil can't handle it! Our poor street's flood cause there's no where for the water to go!
Been busy too. Got another one of Mom's quilts on the frame Sunday morning before Church. I'm using Quilter tissue paper, it's on a roll to do a flower & vine pattern. Having a little trouble staying on the lines, guess practice will help! I'm still afraid to try the laser light & work from the back!
Well no picture photo-bucket is down for maintenance.
Monday night was our Women's meeting at Church & last night was the yard sale meet up. Yesterday I had one heck of a day at work!! I took in 9 computers to be fixed. The bench tech was in a foul mood too!! That was no fun!! I went home with one heck of a headache!
