June 15 - Car and Scales
Tried to run my car at highway speed for the fifteen minutes my mechanic suggested and since I don't have A/C in my car, I preferred driving at night, plus the traffic would be less to contend with. Wouldn't you know it! I got lost! On a high... Read more
June 9 - Didn't pass inspection
Apparently, because I only drive about four miles a day, the evap and catalys valves aren't able to process the eliminating gasses properly, which is why my car keeps failing inspection. So, I have been told to run my car for about fifteen minu... Read more
June 5 - Car Inspection
So I'm without a car today. I had to cancel my other appointments for today in order to get my mechanic to get the "check engine" light off before my car would pass inspection. And being in the fifth day of grace, I just had no choice.
I ... Read more
June 3 - Lost Cat
One of my cats died yesterday. He'd been staying under my bed for several days so knew something wasn't right, but we couldn't get him to come out from under it. I tried giving him food and water but he wasn't interested. Because I have concr... Read more
June 1 - Rain & Fence
We're supposed to have five straight days WITHOUT rain! (Apparently, we have broken a record of inches of rainfall since 1907.) That will hopefully give the ground a chance to dry out, which we need if my son is going to mow the backyard befor... Read more
May 22 - Knee
My knee goes out on me every now and then but usually, it's okay within a couple of days. Not happening this time and I have already had to lose one day of work this week - I would hate to call in for tomorrow, but I can't stand, let alone walk... Read more
May 15 - Rain
Have had a lot of it - almost 10", which is the most rain we've had since 2002! It's nice the draught is over but sure makes it hard to mow! LOL Read more
April 9 - Medical
The mole the doctor was supposed to freeze off didn't take very well. Only some of it has come off so I have to go back and have him re-do it. I didn't have this problem the first time he did it but what is really strange is that he won't do ... Read more
April 7 - Visit
Got to visit with my daughter and grandson today and it was wonderful to see them! They'll be returning to San Antonio in a couple of days but was so glad for the chance to see them on my day off. So it's back to work tomorrow!!... Read more
April 5 - HAPPY EASTER!!
Or rather I should say, Happy Resurrection Day. Target is actually closed today so I will be busy getting things done around the house. Plus, it's just nice to have an actual Sunday off and the only time I usually get to be off on a Sunday.

March 16 - Spring
Even though Spring is officially a few days away, judging by the leaves finally blossoming on the trees, I would say it's already here! LOL
Tomorrow, I go for bridgework FINALLY! Have been putting this off for almost a year, but now that ... Read more
March 5 - Almost a record
Texas had the 4th largest recorded snowfall - 4 inches! While that isn't a lot to most northern states, it's a lot for us. The last recorded snowfall that was more was in 1947!
Even though the sun came out today (thankfully) and melted... Read more
February 27 - Last of Winter?
Unusually, we only get ice every year and that usually only happens two times a year....maybe. This year, we've actually gotten SNOW Read more
February 10 - Car results
So the bill for repairing my car was just under $2,000 - about the Blue Book value. Plus, I was told there were some other issues that would need looking into before long. Since I barely put 3,000 miles a year on my car, I will strongly consid... Read more
January 22 - It's worse than I thought
Car repairs are going to be so high, it surpasses the value of the car. At this point, I need to just replace it, but with my credit plummeting over the past few years, it's probably not possible. My mom has offered to pay for the repairs but ... Read more
