ANOTHER ROAD TRIP

Thursday, April 2nd, 2009

Talked with Terminix yesterday and because the pest control contract at Mother’s is now in my name, I must be present for the first new contract visit.  I tried to get permission to allow the tenant to sign the paperwork, but ‘no’, I have to be there in person when the actual work is done.  I do not know how long it will take them to do whatever, it will be 2 hours travel time for me but will not necessite any additional travel insurance.  This will really mess up a good day.

To make a not good situation into a better one, I will just travel over to the nearby town and get more apple “stuff” for my kitchen.  I may even visit a classmate or a cousin.

FAILURE

Thursday, April 2nd, 2009

I am too dependant!!!  I have all of the pieces out of the box for the desk, but cannot wrap my mind around how to put it together.  I was sure that I would be able to assemble the hutch, but oh no! not at this point.  I can’t make heads or tails of how to go about it.  Maybe I’ll just start looking at the J12 watch and forget all about putting that desk together until someone with more experience than I have can do it for me.

EVIDENCE

Thursday, April 2nd, 2009

There is visible evidence that progress is being made in the freezer room.

The one pantry that we have, has been moved to the corner which will be its new home.  The potato bin is in place and a spot for the old mircowave stand has been determined.  All I need to do now is move the other furniture, buy 2 pantries, use them instead of the hard plastic shelving that is now in place.

Confession is that the only thing on top of the freezer is part of the new desk and the rest of the desk is still in its box. I need to give up my dependance and put the desk together, but I am not sure that I can.  I may bite the bullet and try to do some of it this afternoon.

I am ready for my actual eye to see what my brain’s eye sees.

NEED SOMETHING to DO

Thursday, April 2nd, 2009

The grandchildren are so bored.  It is drizzling rain, so no outside play.  I really do not have any indoor games for them except cards.  This will be two days of watching Videos and DVDs.  I probably have enough for them to watch all week and still not see them all.

I need a game related to cars for the boys, maybe enough Ferrari parts to build an entire modular car.  This would be fun, time consuming, and maybe even use their brain.  They each build a car in Boy Scouts for the annual derby.

When I am in town again, I will have to shop for rainy day toys, for boys and girls, and some patience for me. lol

HORSES

Thursday, April 2nd, 2009

As I was growing up, my dad had mules to work with on the farm and once I remember he had a farm horse.  My husband once had a beautiful quarter horse.  I never rode it.  I have always been very respectful of dogs and large animals.  I think most horses are really beautiful and most move gracefully but are too big for me.

My friend, across the river, has a mare that she raised from a baby.  This horse is 32 years old.  Needless to say she gets the very best horse supplies for Leta. This friend also has 3 Paso Fino horses, 2 mares and 1 stallion. These horses get the best of care possible.

She and her husband went last year to Paso Fino horseshow that was held in Georgia.
