I dont know what to Do with MYSELF..

Hi all. I know I am quite scarce lately..I miss you all terribly. I miss being able to type what I have to say and not worry about someone elses feelings or reading over my shoulder as I type. I am trying to do this when everyone else is asleep. I miss having my home to ourselves. I miss alot of things that for some reason we cant have while having our visitor. Alone time is scarce right now.. I am back on a full schedule and Jeff is going to be as of next week. With the Holidays these last past few weeks we have had troubles getting everyone on a schedule.

The girls have been really cranky and I am about ready to shoot them. Its not even extra energy they have built up for being outside. Its more of them just not having there own space. They are sharing a room and a bed. Life is tough right now.

And on the flip side of things we are having a hell of a time finding places to let us do fund raising with a nonprofit organization like Another Hope for Childrens Ministries. I had to take her to the bank today to see about getting her an account where we can get the pay pal on her Website set up where they can transfer funds.

I am beginning to think this is too big for me and my family. I have no idea how to get this rolling. I have taken a few steps by contacting Oprah Winfrey.. Yes I know it sounds stupid but my MILS told me I should today when I talked to them. I also contacted Dr. Phil.. I e-mailed them both and maybe if we are lucky they can help her more than I can. You just never know.

I am rambling because I dont know what else to do about this. I have to go see about the checking account tomorrow and then go to K-mart and see about using there store as a fund raising facility. I dont know. What I had in mind for this is if we can find some place to do it, I was going to contact a local TV station and see if they want to cover the story and maybe that would generate business to us and the store itself..

I have sold 6 scrunchies to Zombie Slayer and wife. I will post them when I get them finished here in the next couple of days. They are rather pretty neat..I dont have photo's of the girls and all there toys this year. When I went to take photo's they couldnt find all there toys for some reason. So maybe tomorrow night when I come home I will post what I have of them.

Well I am tired and need to get up at about 11:30 to get dressed and eat and then off to the bank for Ruth tomorrow. Talk to you all soon I hope. Miss you all. Hugs.. N...

How I met Ruth

Hi there all. I have an answer to your question.. I met Ruth by doing this Pen Pal thing for Richard Brodsky. She helps run one of the Orphanages over in Uganda Africa. Some of you might have heard of Another Hope Childrens Minsitries. She is one of them. We have been e-mailing for the past year or so and I have found many of her Orphans pen pals here in the states.

She was to come visit her pen pal before me here in the states and her pen pal ended up dying a while back. So I whole heartedly opened up our home to a stranger. I am still not real sure what to do about it. But thanks for the advice. I am really thinking this thing through.

But she is sort of my pen pal. We have quite a bit in common actually. She crochets and wants to learn how to do these new scrunchies I am making that my MIL taught me. I am tired tonight. I am having a hard time staying awake. I am running on 6 hours of sleep from yesterday. I have today and tomorrow off again and then back to my regular scheduled programming.. LOL...

I hope every one had a great X-mas and I hope everyones New Year Rings in with success and peace and Joy.. Esp my good friend Helene with the new baby next month.. I finally sent out her box. She is going to love the two sweaters and bonnets I made baby and the blanket. Well I suppose. I need to get to bed but that is what is up with the Ruth situation and how we met for now.

Maybe I am to open hearted esp with stuff like this. But its bed time for me. Talk to you all soon. N...

PS Check out my crafting blog. The girls had me put some stuff on it they made... They are coool...

Confused..

Hi all. Merry X-mas to those I didnt get to earlier.. I am very confused right now. I have Ruth here now and she is in bed of course or I wouldnt be writing this. But now that she is here I have no idea's on what to do with her.. She wants to go to Florida and I am hoping she isnt expecting me to pay her way because I have no money in that area. I have things to do tomorrow. I have to go get my check and cash it and pay a couple of bills. She isnt used to this cold tempature.

She is a very sweet person but I just am regretting inviting her now. Esp with the cold tempatures and not knowing exactly what she wants here in the US of A.. I mean like Zombieslayer mentioned in a past post on his blog about AIDS.. There are 47 children in the Orphanage over there that she is helping run. It takes ten dollars American money to send one child to school. That is something like 1000 dollars in there money or something like that. I will have to ask Jeff again tomorrow what the currency rate is exactly.

I was sicker than a dog yesterday going to Minneapolis. I woke up and ate breakfast and it hit me.. Yikes. I made the trip but barely. I slept most of it. Going and coming home. Jeff was up for almost 24 hours by time we came home. He had to work yesterday morning and then we got lost going into Minneapolis and then getting lost at the Airport.. LOL... That was funny. Then of course it took us an hour to find Ruth because neither one of us have ever seen her. I will take a photo of the calendars she wants to sell. I know the holiday season is just ending and this is a hard time for most people to be asking for donations. I will be posting either early in the morning or later at night until she leaves.. My visits may be sparodic with you all. More than usual with having an outsider here.

I miss my pals and I am glad to know you all have survived with me with me working and my sparodic visiting of late. I promise to have photos of the girls and there x-mas presents up soon too. I am going to take a photo of each of them with all there gifts since I didnt get individual photo's this year.. They had to much.. Esp from us. Life is a box of chocolates my friends..

Well hope everything is good with you all. I mailed out Helene's box finally. She had two sweaters, two bonnets and an afghan for the little sweet pea of my adopted niece across the ocean.. I hope to see her one day. And I dont mean just photo's either. Well I am gone for now. Talk to you all soon. Lots of Love and Happy Cheer until next time.N...

Trip.

This maybe a long post.. LOL.. I am going to start on Monday and go through Friday for you.. With photo's in between. So bear with me.. Sit back and enjoy the ride or the reading..

Monday I finished up packing and then we packed up the car and did some more running that needed doing for the trip. Then I went to work and that was hell on wheels. I was not at work in mind but body I was there. At 2:15 AM the manager looks at me and says go on. I was suppose to be done at 3 but it was dead and she saw I was Antsy.. LOL.. Who me antsy NEVER!!!! ... Anyway it takes Jeff about half hour to come and get me with finishing putting some stuff in the trunk we didnt want to freeze and such. And getting the girls up and running. Warming the car up for me and them.. LOL.. Well we get to Minnesota and we go see my mom to tell her we are in town. Then go check into the motel and we laid down for about ten minutes and I decided I couldnt sleep and I got everyone back up and we ran for a while. We went to K-mart and while driving through the parking lot I saw Tshsmom.

I looked at Jeff and said that looks like Tshsmom and he asked if I was sure. I said I think so. And we drove up to where I thought it was her truck and got out and walked up to the truck. Well guess what it was Tshsmom and Z-Kid..

The girls got there quilts finally from my Godmother. Here are the photo's of them. This was funny because we went to see her Monday and she was saying she got up to Crochet one night and Bri's quilt scared the crap out of her. It was glowing. Bri's material glows. Its cool.

Bri's quilt



Kora's Quilt.



Wednesday we went to see if an old friend of Jeff's worked at a motel in town but he had quit shortly after starting there so we moved on.. We went and seen and old friend of my mothers and her son told me my packer jacket should be burned. I told him if he touched my jacket I was going to break his FUCKING FINGERS.. Excuse the language. Anyway moving on went to see an old friend of mines mom. She has never seen the girls so I thought she would enjoy it. You should have seen the look on her face when she walked through her door.. It was total amazement..

Then we went back to the motel and got a few things I forgot. Then Jeff took us to Tshsmom's house and we had a grand old time. Letting the girls eat cookies and having soda and then Tshsmom sat down with them and made one of there tree ornaments. Then sent the other one home with me. We are planning on doing them tomorrow. Here are some photo's from Tshsmoms house.






Hairy and girls in this one.. Yes I got a good photo of Hairy..



Girls with Adopted uncle Z-kid..





Meet Felicia and Felix.. The black one is Felicia and the gold one is Felix.



Meet Jake..



Kora and Tshsmom..



Then Thursday we left Minnesota and headed back to Wisconsin. A long ride. Then this lady wouldnt let us move over to make our turn because Jeff had moved over to pass some one and then we found out we had to move back over to turn.. We got to my dads house about 2:00 PM.. We checked into the motel and I called him and left a message. He called back half an hour later and then we went and visited and ate supper. He had a Pork roast waiting for us. We made Desert while waiting. He made this dessert that had whip cream, apples, grapes, rice, and banana's.. It was funny watching Jeff as I helped my dad chop fruit up.. LOL.. It was his facial expressions. Then he made for drinking this fruit punch.. It was good but strong. No acohol of course but still strong.



I just noticed I skipped Tuesday and I dont know where to put it in.. LOL.. I am disorganized this post.. Tuesday we spent running around town getting a few things we had forgotten at home..

Then Friday we left for Jeff's mothers house. We had a blast there to be honest. His mother showed me how to make home made scrunchies. I will post some of them when I am done with a few more. I am more than willing to sell them. I just need to know how many you want because they do take a couple of days for me to make. They are pretty neat though.. The girls got candy from Grandmas. His mothers partner got a kitten. She is beautiful. Her name is Lily.











Well there is most of our trip anyway.. The roads going were ok until we got about 40 miles out of Superior Wisconsin. Then they got real slick until we got into Minnesota and cleared again for the most part.

Enjoy and I am going to go make Jeff's lunch and then head to bed myself. I am exhausted. I worked tonight after having five days off. My feet hurt, my legs hurt,I hurt... LOL.. I will visit tomorrow if I have time. N...

PS the red one is mine I made and the other one is the one my MIL made.. Enjoy..

I am back..

Hi I am back in one piece. Very tired but I will promise to post a better post Monday or Tuesday after going through the photo's.. Not many of them but enough to go through.. LOL.. Just wanted you all to know we made it home safe and sound.. N..

Sunday, December 14, 2008

Alrighty...

Ok I said I wasnt going to post again until I came next week but I am done packing and I dont know what to do with my self..I still have small stuff but cant pack that till tomorrow. Its suppose to ice up here tonight.. Yikes.. It rained and melted some of our snow last night and now the roads are wet and its suppose to get really cold and ice everything up. Suppose to be slightly better when I get off work tomorrow night when Jeff comes to get me to leave..

I know I know. I am still talking about our trip. I am just so damned excited.. I got yelled at, at work last night for talking about it.. A manager was pissed off at me the other night. I was in the Grill area all by myself. I was cooking the meat and putting the sandwiches together and then I was sort of snagging and she told me if I didnt quit my bitching she was going to take someone away from me back there. There was no one there for her to take away from me.

The guy that was helping was sort of helping up front and the guy that was suppose to cook the food dissappeared to put the breakfast stuff in the drawer where we keep it. He didnt need to do that because the over night cook was going to do it.. But I was pissed off. I was ready to walk out on the closing manager but didnt. I think this break will be fine. Plus the closing manager doesnt like Jeff and he had been in there with me for half an hour before my shift. We went and played Raquetball and then went to eat.. So I think that was part of her pissy mood with me.

I have been taking orders on the headsets recently and doing well according to the guy that hired me back in July. Can you believe I have been working again for 5 Months Dec 14th?????? Yes that long already... LOL... Amazing and our reviews should be coming up also. I am not looking for management or a raise but at least a good review. I know I have said this before but I have been there for five months and havent called in once yet. Yayyy me!!!!! Go N....

Anyway we are all good here. Jeff is enjoying his days off. We are going to leave MN on Thursday and stop by my dad's house and stay in Rice Lake WI and then leave there on Friday and go see his mother in Wausau area and then come home that night.. I will have loads of photo's to share with you all. I just hope I can get them on one memory card.. LOL..

Then after we come home from this trip we get to go back to Minneapolis MN and get Ruth from Africa... And then while we are waiting for that I was hoping to make a trip to Milaca about an hour out of Minneapolis to see my Aunt that is only 11 years older than me.. I am going to call her again I think here in a few minutes.. That will be a nice small road trip and then no more trips till Ruth leaves Green Bay to go back to Uganda..

Ok I am babbling now. Talk to you all sometime. Maybe if I get bored at my parents house I will visit but more than likely wont have time. Talk to you all next week sometime. Have a great week and enjoy the weather if you have beautiful weather..

Thanks Mike S....

Here is while I am gone and I wont have time to post this weekend because of packing..

A Washington , DC airport ticket agent offers some examples of why our country is in trouble!




1. I had a NC Congresswoman ask for an aisle seat so that her hair wouldn't get messed up by being near the window. (On an airplane!)



2. I got a call from a candidate's staffer, who wanted to go to Capetown. I started to explain the length of the flight and the passport information, and then she interrupted me with, 'I'm not trying to make you look stupid, but Capetown is in Massachusetts .'



Without trying to make her look stupid, I calmly explained, 'Cape Cod is in Massachusetts , Capetown is in Africa '



Her response - click



3. A senior Vermont Congressman called, furious about a Florida package we did. I asked what was wrong with the vacation in Orlando . He said he was expecting an ocean-view room. I tried to explain that's not possible, since Orlando is in the middle of the state.

He replied, 'Don't lie to me, I looked on the map and Florida is a very thin state!' (OMG)




4. I got a call from a lawmaker's wife who asked, 'Is it possible to see England from Canada ?'



I said, 'No.'



She said, 'But they look so close on the map.' (OMG, again!)



5. An aide for a cabinet member once called and asked if he could rent a car in Dallas . When I pulled up the reservation, I noticed he had only a 1-hour layover in Dallas




When I asked him why he wanted to rent a car, he said, 'I heard Dallas was a big airport, and we will need a car to drive between gates to save time.' (Aghhhh)



6. An Illinois Congresswoman called last week. She needed to know how it was possible that her flight from Detroit left at 8:30 AM got to Chicago at 8:33 AM. I explained that Michigan was an hour ahead of Illinois , but she couldn't understand the concept of time zones. Finally, I told her the plane went very, very fast, and she bought that.



7. A New York lawmaker called and asked, 'Do airlines put your physical description on your bag so they know whose luggage belongs to whom?'



I said, 'No, why do you ask?'



She replied, 'Well, when I checked in with the airline, they put a tag on my luggage that said (FAT), and I'm overweight. I think that's very rude!'



After putting her on hold for a minute while I looked into it (I was laughing). I came back and explained the city code for Fresno , CA is (FAT - Fresno Air Terminal), and the airline was just putting a destination tag on her luggage.



8. A Senator's aide called to inquire about a trip package to Hawaii . After going over all the cost info, she asked, 'Would it be cheaper to fly to California , and then take the train to Hawaii ?'



9. I just got off the phone with a freshman Congressman who asked, 'How do I know which plane to get on?'



I asked him what exactly he meant, to which he replied, 'I was told my flight number is 823, but none of these planes have numbers on them.'



10. A lady Senator called and said, 'I need to fly to Pepsi-Cola , Florida . Do I have to get on one of those little computer planes?'


I asked if she meant fly to Pensacola , Fl. On a commuter plane.



She said, 'Yeah, whatever, smarty!'



11. A senior Senator called and had a question about the documents he needed in order to fly to China . After a lengthy discussion about passports, I reminded him that he needed a visa.



'Oh, no I don't. I've been to China many times and never had to have one of those.'



I double checked and sure enough, his stay required a visa.



When I told him this he said, 'Look, I've been to China four times and every time they have accepted my American Express!'



12. A New Mexico Congresswoman called to make reservations. 'I want to go from Chicago to Rhino, New York .'



I was at a loss for words. Finally, I said, 'Are you sure that's the name of the town?'



'Yes, what flights do you have?' replied the lady.



After some searching, I came back with, 'I'm sorry, ma'am, I've looked up every airport code in the country and can't find a Rhino anywhere.



'The lady retorted, 'Oh, don't be silly! Everyone knows where it is. Check your map!'



So I scoured a map of the state of New York and finally offered, 'You don't mean Buffalo ,

do you?'



The reply - -'Whatever! I knew it was a big animal.'





Now you know why the Government is in the shape that it's in


And a little bonus smile:


Subject: Political humor


A bus load of politicians were driving down a country road when all of a sudden, the bus ran off the road and crashed into a tree in an old farmer's field. The old farmer, after seeing what had happened, went over to investigate. He then proceeded to dig a hole to bury the politicians.

A few days later the local sheriff came out, saw the crashed bus, and asked the old farmer where all the politicians had gone. The old farmer said he had buried them. The sheriff asked the old farmer, 'Were they all dead?' The old farmer replied, 'Well, some of them said they weren't, but you know how them bastards lie.'

Hey

Hi there.. I was just going to tell you we are under a storm warning with snow. We are suppose to get like 8-12 inches. Yikes. I love watching it come down nice and fluffy. But I hate shoveling the snow.. We are taking turns this year since I am working.. The only thing I dont want to think about having to do is shovel before I get into the house for Jeff one of these mornings when I come home from work..

One week from tomorrow we are going home to see my parents. I am so excited just for the road trip. And gas is so cheap right now that, that helps us alot.. I think gas here is only like 10 cents more than it was right before it went to hell in 2005. Or something like that.. That is if my memory serves me correctly..

A co worker is having a baby next week and I made her a small afghan but didnt take a photo of it before giving it to her. I am suppose to go to the babyshower today but not sure if I want to go. I dont know her family and such. I just had some yarn laying around and wanted to use it. It was white, a verigated pink, purple, and light green,That was in one skein and then I used a bright yellow and darker green also. It turned out really pretty.

I have some cleaning to do. I think I am going to go get that done. I dont want to clean but it needs to be done.. Talk to you all soon. Just where you know what I am up to also I am reading this book: Treasure of Khan By Clive and Dirk Cussler.. Its a Dirk Pitt novel... I will do a review on it when I am done..


Here is the family photo that got put in our cards..



Here is the photo of the girls I put in the X-mas cards.. It was one of our hikes this last summer before it got to cold..

Its jjust because...

Hi all. You all know that the Holiday Season is upon us and I havent started shopping yet...I have no idea what to get Brianna. I have idea's for Kora but not Bri this year.. It should be the other way around but its not..

I am so looking forward to going home for a few days next week. Bri's working on K's today.. Kora is working on writing letters and sentences in her book. But she prefers to read... She will sit and read for hours at a time.

They both want me to teach them to crochet but I dont know where to start with that maybe I will just have my MIL teach them.. We are stopping to see my dad and his mother on our way home to Green Bay when we leave Minnesota next week. The girls get like 3 or so different X-mas's.. LOL... That is what we get for having such a huge family between the two of us.

Then on the 24th we get to make a trip back to Minneapolis MN to get Ruth from the airport from Uganda. Then she is going to be here for a month or so. She is sending me some calanders to sell. I might post one and if you all are interested just let me know. I will have them in my possession before she gets here so maybe I can have some money here waiting for her when she gets here. She has 16 dollars already..

Thanks for being patient with me my friends.. Oh I have one thing to say and I dont remember posting this. You all remember me saying I wasnt sure of the headsets when I first started working right?? Well guess what?? I have been taking orders and doing well with them.. I was taking orders Wednesday night and doing quite well. I didnt make one mistake. Well maybe one but we fixed it before the car drove away. No calls saying that we made a mistake... yayyyy......

Its cold here and Jeff and I have been making a date 3 nights a week to play raquetball when we have time. The other night was our first hi/bye session. He was just walking in the door as I was walking out.. That was the hardest day of my life since working I think. We are planning on playing raquetball tonight and tomorrow. I just hope he gets home in time to go at 7 PM tonight.. Other wise we have it set up for 2 PM tomorrow since they close at 4 PM down town tomorrow. We have four sites here in the Green Bay Area..

Kora is having a hard time with her math lately. she knows what like 2+4=6 but taking 6-4=2 is confusing her.. Any suggestions. I have to work with her on some papers I got from a blog friend.. I need to find the envolope I have the papers in.. Well I suppose. Kora needs to take her spelling test here in a few minutes and I have to get dressed and find a clean uniform for tonight for myself. Then hopefully my dear hubby will be home in time to go play raquetball..LOL... Talk to you all soon. Have a wonderful weekend I dont get back here till Monday..

Life....

Hi there. I havent given an update in a while..Lets start with work. That is going great. I have gotten more hours again. Just a few. I have been working like 35-38 hours a week. It started out as a parttime job but now its full time. I am not complaining. Just weird how it ended up.... Last night we were suppose to have like seven people and four of them called in.. That left three people.. We had to keep thte closing manager and her boyfriend because we had no one else.. No one else would answer there phones..


The next item on my list of information is that Jeff and I are going home this month. Two weeks from today... Yayyyy... We get to see Tshsmom and L and Z. Then we get to see my parents. My godmother and her family.. I should really talk Jeff into buying some more material for the girls quilts I am having my godmother make for them.. She has been working on them for the past three years now..

Jeff and I went to play Raquetball last week and I took a fall. Nothing is broken but boy did that fall hurt.. I dont know what happened exactly. I know I went to hit the ball and the next thing I know I am on my face basically.. I slid on my knee's because those have hurt like I burned them..And then slightly twisted my ankle but doing better.

Kora and Bri are doing well. Kora is in the area of fighting me on her work and getting fustrated and throwing things and just making grunting noises when she doesnt get something. Instead of asking she just sits there making noises..Bri has her name down pat... She can write her first name and she can write most of her alphabet now too. We are on "H" today..

Then onto Jeff. He needs a break. He has been working like more than 12 hours a day this last week plus going out with me when we can.. I feel so sorry for him.. I have tonight off and we are suppose to be going out. I am not going to be tired when he is and it sucks. I miss going ot bed with my hubby and girls but you know what its worth the money to be on opposite sleeping schedules..

Well I suppose. I need some food. I have only been up for half an hour or so... I was suppose to be home at 3 last night but didnt get home until 4:30.. I had to do dishes plus cook last night and we winged breakfast because the closing manager knew breakfast but wasnt sure how to start it.. LOL... Ok. I am gone. Talk to you all later. Have a good week if I dont post again in the next few days...N..

Thanks to my MOM AND KEN.....

Have a great week my friends... Enjoy.....




The California Highway Patrol in the Los Angeles area recently found some amusement filling out accident reports in a series of car accidents. As it turned out, drivers were losing control and running into other vehicles upon seeing a giant women's pubis displayed on the front part of an oncoming car.

The CHP started frantically looking for the dangerous pubis and came upon the tracks of a young hairdresser named Nelly Node. Nelly's passion for the arts made the young woman photograph her own crotch and put the zoomed picture on her Volkswagen Beetle. Nelly decided to use such a shameless method to prepare her college course work in which she analyzed the art of design. The witty student's idea worked for the college professors.

She was proudly driving her 'pubic beetle' until the CHP arrested the woman. The court ruled that Nelly's car was creating a dangerous situation on the roads. The girl had to paint over her car's hood.
Here's a picture of her VW before she had to repaint it.



You don't suppose the other drivers were driving along going "Twat was that??"
And was she charged with pubic indecency?
It's a good thing she was picked up by the fuzz...
I'll stop the cracks now.

Cat and the X-mas Tree....I jeed to know how to keep Miss S away from the Tree withouth chasing her constantly.. Esp when we arent home. I picked up some bigger balls this year for a buck a piece..

TV and this new damned Digital.....

Hi all. I have a new veiw on TV in general. Jeff and I bought the first two seasons of The Hulk. You know the big green man that only came out when David Banner got angry or hurt... Or when someone else got got hurt...

Well my new view on TV is that why spend 140 dollars on TV each month when you can go buy the seasons on DVD and watch them with out commercials or for that matter watch them on the internet??? Go spend 140 dollars or so on the seasons and then go home and watch them or watch your favorite episode over and over again.. You wont have to wait for them to do a rerun on it..

We want to get the other three seasons of Hulk and then I want the full set of seasons of the Fragels for the girls but that is going to have to wait. And there are a few other shows I wouldnt mind having. I liked the Angel one. I can never remember the name of it.


I will miss watching the Football games each Sunday afternoons next year but you know what we may have cable or we may not. I dont care either way. I will miss watching my soaps but with me working I havent been able to keep up with my favorite two anyway lately. I think I have been up before 11 AM a handful of times since I started working now..

I dont mind changes but I just get fustrated with them..

Off the topic... I have made forty dollars at work from one co worker on those scarves I told you all about. I never did take photo's of them.. I should have but didnt and then I am making two more for another co worker for her twin sisters. I am done with those also. They are a hunter green and red mixed. They tured out nice.

I have also sold a few things I had for Ruth my African friend and and one scarf of mine I made. I sold the Ribbon scarf.. I just wish I could sell more of my stuff before x-mas. I have a whole bin full of stuff that needs to go before x-mas. Mostly big blankets. I understand how tight everyones budget is this year. We are making our trip home and then thats it for us for a long while again. I am going home to see my parents and then Tshsmom and family. My godmother and such. We are only going home for a few days but its going to be tight to see everyone.

Well HAPPY THANKSGIVING IF I FORGET. I MAY NOT MAKE IT BACK IN HERE BEFORE THE BEGINNING OF THE HOLIDAY....I have to work tomorrow night into Thanksgiving and then we have Thanksgiving off.. And then back to the grind on Friday..

Well I am off to do a few things before I have to go to work at 8 PM... Have a wonderful day..

Oh one more thing before I leave you... It was like this when we went to bed on Sunday..



This is what it looked like waking up on Monday morning.. But not this deep.. I havent taken a photo of it outside yet. The snow is still there. I just need a photo of it.. LOL... But this is an idea of how it looked..



Ok now I am gone. Have a wonderful Holiday my friends..

Gay Marriages....

Hi all. I am slightly disturbed by some peoples views on Gay Marriages. I am watching Dr Phil and they are discussing it there. I am opposed to how people feel about it. I mean my MIL is Gay and I have Gay friends. What is wrong with people wanting to be taken care of like us that arent Gay....????? I need to know the answers to these questions.

I mean I see it as long as you are happy and you enjoy your partner in any type of relationship sure. I mean sure the schools will tell your children about that but I dont see what the schools have to say about marriage anyway... I know what the Bible says too. But you know what I see it again and again and again as long as you are happy....

What is the difference between a Gay couple and a Heterosexual couple except for the Gay couple being either two men or two women?????? And the other one of each...I support the Gay Marriage for those of you that are and arent.. I see it as why not let them have a wife and wife or husband and husband take care of eachother.. Sure some of them may have children. You know what if they do you explain to them that is what you want. Some people see it as its a disturbance to explain to your child.. Well you know what. There are plenty of gay people that have children and they turn out just fine..

I have explained to Kora why grandma has a partner instead of a grandpa and she understands more than you know... It upsets me with this well they need to be nongays to be married. I dont think so. I believe if you love some one and you want that right it should be there.. Its disturbing to know how most people dock this shit and say oh well they are gay they cant have the rights we have. You know what that is totally wrong.. I think if you are gay and you love that person you are with you need to be able to get married and also have the rights to have them decide what to do with you when you are sick and sign papers that us Hetero's have with our spouses...

I know I am ranting but I feel strongly on this subject and I hope you all dont critize me for this either.. There are a lot of things to be said. I mean I remember when they were trying to vote for something last year about health care something and then it was if you were a gay couple you couldnt decide what to do for your partner, you couldnt do something for there health care.. I dont get it. I just dont get it. Why cant a happy Gay couple decide what is going on for there loved one...

Anyway sorry for the rant here. But it was just something that gets me.. I support my Gay friends.. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and talk to you all soon. N...

Enjoy...

There were more but they wouldnt let me copy all the photo's at once and I dont remember exactly where I left off and I think I copied more than one here twice.. Sorry if I did.. Enjoy.. Talk to you all later..
















A game warden was driving down the road when he came upon a young boy carrying a wild turkey under his arm.



He stopped and asked the boy, 'Where did you get that turkey?'



The boy replied, 'What turkey?'



The game warden said, 'That turkey you're carrying under your arm.'



The boy looks down and said, 'Well, lookee here, a turkey done roosted under my arm!'



The game warden said, 'Now look, you know turkey season is closed, so whatever you do to that turkey, I'm going to do to you.



If you break his leg, I'm gonna break your leg If you break his wing, I'll break your arm. Whatever you do to him, I'll do to you. So, what are you gonna do with him?'



The little boy said, 'I guess I'll just kiss his ass and let him go!'



May your stuffing be tasty
May your turkey plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have never a lump.
May your yams be delicious
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

For my Minnesota Friends.. And other to Enjoy...

THIS IS HOW TO FISH IN MINNESOTA Got this one from Jeff's sister in Law.. Enjoy.. It looks reallly neat though.. I will make rounds tomorrow since I have tomorrow off and work the rest of the week.. Take care my friends and hope every one is warm and snuggled up with something or someone..

I was going to build the Gazebo on the edge of my dock down by the lake but I thought .I might just as well build the deck with floats on it and I can then take it out fishing too...... Has 15,000# capacity. The deck is 18ft x 18ft with 12 plastic foam filled dock floats that are 4ft x 4ft by 18 inches high and the Gazebo is 10 ft. Hexagon with a table and chairs. Inside, under the table is my trolling motor so I can take it out to my favorite fishing hole. The trolling motor is remote controlled wireless so I can be fishing outside and operate the motor. On the top of the table I have a LOWRANCE Fish-Finder with depth sounding sonars and temp gauge. I have 2 electric winches with 40# anchors. I have also built in a water pump so I can clean the fish right on the spot.


Now I can relax and fish while my wife can sit and relax.





Question... Does anyone know how to keep the Fruit Flies away when you have banana's in the house.. I have kitchen full of them and they are just annoying... let me know please.I will buy some raid on Friday if I have to get rid of them...

Stuff

Here is some stuff. I have our turkey for thanksgiving already.. We got it for 1.38 a pound and decided to pick it up. Not a bad price for a ten pound bird.. I have been working really hard. I was told by two managers they want to teach me breakfast.. Plus the new woman they hired for over nights. They are trying to get this Mexican lady to quit. She has been really mean lately. She cleans and if its not good enough she goes over it anyway when I clean. She was telling me what to do last night again and such.. I just did it to my best and it wasnt good enough for her so I caught her going over my work.. OH WELLLLL.....


A few weeks ago I got to leave early and I was told to ask M if she wanted me to do anything and she said to sweep but what pissed me off the most was she came right behind me with another broom sweeping. Its like why ask me to sweep if you are going to sweep behind me.. Then the following week I was on the grill. Not literally but I was cooking the food and she wanted me to clean my area and the manager Robin was there and asked me to do something for her and this M got really pisssed off. She called me a Fucking Lazy Cleaner. She also told Robin that I finish cleaning before helping the manager with what she asked me to do.. What right does she have telling the manager what to do or what i am going to do for that matter.. I try really hard to do what I am asked but I dont please this one lady.. She was suppose to show me how to close the grill last night but she never did. Oh well I will just have to ask Joe this weekend when I work with him or Rick..

Other wise the job is going well yet. I have told a few managers I want to get better on the headsets. If I can get better on the headsets and learn breakfast there is more than likely a better positions for me. Even though with management if someone calls in sick I have to stay until they find a replacement but that doesnt happen that often..

We are planning on a bon fire in the back yard tonight if its not to wet. I am so looking forward to it.. Its been raining/snowing all night long so it might be just to wet and cold to do one tonight..

You know tomorrow is my payday and I get to pay the phone/internet bill and then put the rest in the bank. Yayyy. Starting to put money in the bank... That is always a good thing.. My house looks like crap. I havent cleaned in four days because I havent had the energy from this cold.. I feel better today but tired becaue I didnt get to sleep till six this morning.. I didnt get home till almost five this morning. I went in at 8 and got home at 4:40 or something like that. I was suppose to be home at 3.

I came home and offered to make Jeff breakfast and he took me up on it. I just got him some left over pizza that we got from Papa Murphy's last night. Its one of the take and bake places we have here. They make it and we bake it at home. Those are better than the Jacks pizza's you buy from the store.

Miss S is growing like a weed. She is a fat catt to me at least compared to when I brought her home. My mom lost her dog the other day. Scooby had been sick for a couple of weeks and my mom brought her to the vet a week or so ago and he gave her some meds for her and dad went to help her from under there bed since she couldnt jump up on the bed any longer and she was stiff as a board. She died under there bed in the night I guess. But my mom got two new kitties nine weeks old.. One is pure orange and other is black with orange sparkles in his back. I think if I remember correctly mom named them Selina and Felix..

The girls are doing good. I have said enough of them lately.. They are adjusting to my working after four months on the job.. I think on Nov. 14th it will have been four months already..Anyway I am going to go. I will make rounds later this afternoon if I have time. I have a few things I want to get done before visiting so if not today tomorrow I will see you all.. Have a wonderful couple of days if I dont see you around.. N...

Talk to you all later today sometime... N...

My girls Playing in the Leaves..

I decided to take my camera and video tape the girls playing in the leaves. Enjoy watching them. You cant hear them squeal but its the point. I love them dearly and I love watching them. I am making a manager some scarves for her coats she has at home. I made her one and she fell madly in love with it and asked if I would make her three more.. I wish I would have taken a photo of the first one but I forgot.
