Aw, Come on already!...

Tuesday, December 09, 2014

Scrambling around as usual. Still waiting on the money, gang. Gets frustrating, I can hardly wait til I can have my own laptop again, and not have to change my password on all my accounts every time I log in... SO Confusing! LOL

I'm glad I've got you all on my side. You have NO idea how much I've needed your support!

So, the building I live in is definitely on the foreclosure and though no one whose left has received an "official" notice, the trustee's auction is scheduled for February, so I'm madly trying to find my new abode... and still waiting for the money! LOL

Yes, Mayhem still seems to like me...

I'll get back to you all as soon as I can! LOVE you guys!

    Prayers that your money will arrive soon and you find a great place to live. Just when things start going well for you, someone kicks the ball the other direction. So glad thought that you can stay so positive no matte what life throws your way!
Your mayhem needs a swift kick out the door never to return so often.
Thank you for keeping us posted.
Prayers, blessings, love and hugs, dear friend.

    I hate to hear this!! I hope that you can find somewhere nice. And I hope you or someone from the Humane Society or a no kill shelter can trap Amigo and either let him go with you or find him a good home. I'm praying for you and your kitties,

Boo-ti-ful dreamer...

...dreaming of a new computer!...

Here I am, at the library again... just got a few minutes, been trying to find information on tenants' rights and foreclosure... interesting how much there is--and all the articles say..."...you should seek legal advice..." LOL

Things are going fairly well, otherwise. Went to a church "singles family home evening" last night. We had a Halloween themed potluck. I made zombie eyes (black olives stuffed with dill and cayenne seasoned cream cheese.) I came home with a chicken casserole covered in plastic centipedes, spiders and beetles. LOL


Have a great holiday, every 0ne!

    Geez! I don't know that I could eat food that was made to look like gory things and spiders. I'd have to say "Boo" to that!

And the beat goes on...

Wednesday, October 22, 2014

I got the most interesting little packet in the mail this last week. Apparently, one of the companies I worked for back in the 90's had a pension plan with my name on it that I knew nothing about. I have the option of 1) taking $95 a month now, 2) rolling it over to an IRA or other retirement plan, 3) rolling over part of it and taking a cash settlement for the rest, 4) taking a lump sum payment now or 5) waiting 'til I'm 65 and getting $131 a month.

Disbursement is December 1st this year.

The lump sum is almost $17K. I am leery of having that much on hand after what happened with my Social Security settlement! LOL Less than a year and it was gone~and it was twice as much!

I've decided to roll it over for now. Since I'm over 60 there is no penalty for withdrawal so I can take it out whenever...

Nice, huh?

Now if they foreclose the apartments, I can go wherever I want! ... but how do I manage that with Amigo?... iiiinnnnttterrrresttiiiing....

I'm going to "blow" some of it though. I will DEFINITELY need a new computer! LOL

God does answer prayers...

...and I've been asking him to bless all of you, too! emoticon emoticon

Hey, there!

Tuesday, October 14, 2014

Hi, Gang!
It feels like forever since I've been online--my hard drive is down again, and I'm at the library using my BRAND NEW library card for the first time! LOL

I'm doing fairly well in spite of all the stress... two weeks after my dad died, my ex's fiancée lost her dad--and a few weeks after that, HIS dad was found on the bathroom floor, also deceased. Crazy. I don't know how to react any more...

There are all kinds of good things going on, though. I have really been enjoying working with the choir at my church, and there is a stake conference coming up so we're all participating in the choir for that...

My dear friend Helen has a green thumb, and she had a bumper crop of volunteer tomatoes that sprang up in her compost pile! LOL Guess who's been getting baskets full of them? MMmmm, good! And cucumbers too!

I don't have a lot of time, today, so I just want to say thanks for all of your support. I've got more messages and good wishes than I can read in one session, but I'll do my best to make it down to the library at least once a week until I can get my laptop fixed or replaced...

Thanks for not giving up on me!
Kathy emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I love the library. I sometimes get books on tape to listen to when I'm working on a project or doing a big road trip. Ah... there likely won't be many more big road trips now DD has moved home. That is wonderful. Sad about your hard drive. I am so lucky to have DH who can fix anything computer wise. Our cat never came back so I plan to put together a small "memorial" to have with the kids. Certainly the other two animals miss him and I was horrified to see a rat under the bird feeder yesterday. He was a ratter and a good one. On the good side I'm loving having the kids all living at home again. My new neighbour is awesome and we have so much in common. She is anxious to have a new friend and I was missing all my friends who have moved out of town... it could not have come at a better time. Take care K, glad to hear good things happening in your life. Justyna

    I thought about going to the library the other day. It really appealed to me.

There has been so much loss of life so close to you. I hate to hear it and can relate. After Reekie died on August 23 Baxter unexpectedly died on October 9. We have been reeling.

I'm so glad you have some good news to report. We do too - hubby is back remodeling on the back porch. Got a roof on it so no more leaking.

I hope you get your computer back soon! emoticon
