|quiet and alone
In the Fall Friday is football night. My sons HS is playing a team south of us and my hubby will be going to watch. The weather is getting cooler and more wet at night and I didn't want to chance it so far from home just in case I had breathing probs. Must pick and choose what I do.
So here I am all alone on a Friday, trying to decide if I want to rent a DVD , channel surf or just curl up with my book. Decisions, Decisions....lol I know none important. I did get my errands done to today, picking out flowers from the family for the funeral tomorrow, and my bills.
Maybe I will check back later.
Take Care All Current Mood: boredCurrent Music: Queen Greatest Hits

|just woke up from my nap
Didn't get to the bills yet but have them already to organize. Did go to Sams' Club and buy some necessities for the house including some food. i woke earlier today with a headache really a begining of a migraine but I took care of it oor rather the meds did. I really need to take all my daily meds to avoid this. I dont want back in that nasty cycle of migraines 24/7 where I am totally non functioning let alone be any kind contribution to my family. I am looking forward to this evening where I am going to the Play , Charlie Brown a musical. should be fun. Current Mood: refreshedCurrent Music: none
I am sitting here typing in the journal knowing full well I need to tackle my bills. the mail just came and wonder what more billmongers want from me. lol.............. next week everything will be wonderful , just the essential bills with no others. We will be cutting up all of them with the exception of 2 credit cards for emergencies only. This past year really put us in the pooper with hubby being off of work for 1 year, my depression didn't help when I lost my Daddy, whom I miss very much not to mention all of my other "health" issues. Still dealing with being permanently disabled, an ongoing process. Can you imagine being 43 knowing you will never work again. I never wanted to have to rely on my spouse for support. He is sooooooooooo good to me and tolerates so much. I don't know what I would do with out him. I am sitting here listening to the soundtrack of "My Best Friends Wedding" and it is just making me smile. = ) Current Mood: nostalgicCurrent Music: soundtrack of best friends wedding
|woke up on the couch
4am here in CA, feel like the cat dragged me in. eyes are burning, body aching and just plain yuck. Fell asleep on the couch, knew I should have gone upstairs to bed. Probably will now. trying to think ooof all the things I need to get done today. My knee has been killing me and makes it hard to do anything. I have a play I am going to this evening with a girlfriend. Her daughter is performing in it at the loca community college. it is a Charlie Brown Musical. She plays Lucy. Her goal is to go to New York and be a Broadway performer. well guess I will trod upstairs and try and seek more sleep, maybe read a little more of Lord of the Rings.
Later Current Mood: drainedCurrent Music: none

|another phone call
Good news this time. My refinace is moving forward and hopefully will be all sewed up by the first of next week. That will be such a relief. Having had my hubby off for a year due to the work accident really tried us finacially. In the process My credit has been messed up, due to some of the smaller credit cards. It seemed I was always robbing Peter to pay Paul and a day late and short to boot. Hopefully by this coming March we will have one the 3rd party case and we will be totally squared away then. My son needs new shoes cuz the air bubble thingies broke on the bottom of the shoe, but we told him to please be patient and by the first of Nov. he wil be able to buy a pair. We pay a portion of those kinds of shoes and he pays the difference. Gotto love my son. He has been so good and supportivie thru all of this. He has had a job since the age of 16 and paying for most of his needs without asking us for any money. My daughter in college has also helped out , just by not asking for extraa funds. that is all for now. Current Mood: excited
hmmmmmm I wonder if anyone has read any of my post. woke up to the sound of the ringing telephone. Couldn't get to it cuz upstairs we have no phone as of yet, I am still waiting for hubby to install the line. Hmphf!!
It is is sad, one of my close family friends has passed away, and her mom was wanting to know where all the food came from for my Dad's funeral which was this past April. Lisa the one who passed died from Lung Cancer, yes she smoked. She is now the fourth on that list of folks close to me who have died from Cancer and all smoked. Lisa was younger than me and what makes this even worse is we buried her brother the week before my Dad passed. I can't even begin to imagine of having your children passing away before you do. This is so sad. anyone who may read this please say a prayer for Kay and Tom and the rest of thier family. They need the strength to get thru. thanks Current Mood: sadCurrent Music: none

Help!! headache is back
Haven't had a break-thru headache in several days. just took my migraine meds. I am sure this is my fault this time as yesterday I didn't take my morning fistful of meds. I have been sooooo cold all day,just can't seem to get warm. I know I live in Calif but living close to the beaches make it a wet cold. Just talked to my broker for the new loan, should all be down with before the end of the month!! whahooooo!!!!! Only one monthly payment except for utilities, and kids tuitions, oh yeah and groceries too. no, I mean NO credit card bills.. Then in the new year I pray for a positive outcome on my husbands case. We could sure do with something going our way. I can always dream of a big win the lotto way, lol but first one must play to win.
This AM I woke up much more peaceful than to the loudness of lawnpeople of yesterday. On my 2nd cup of coffee drinking out of one of my fav cups, of the one and only Jack Skeleton. I absolutely love the The Nightmare before Xmas. One of my "kids" (one not from my loins but often here at our humble abode) works at Disneyland and will give us(my hubby and I)passes to both parks, complete with a head of the line pass and W/C for me. We have never been to the Calif Adventure Park and want to check it out and I am looking forward to all the Xmas Decorations they will have up in Nov. Especially the haunted mansion all decked out in the Jack Skeletons world. Need to go and fiqure some of my bill payments out but first a few games. Got to love pogo games Current Mood: contentCurrent Music: Wow 2001 mix of Christian Artists
