  1. good health-something you can't buy

    Well working in the health care field, I see sick people's records all day. You kind of get immune to sickness. Then when you know someone that is sick or dies. It reminds you that this body is very temporary and fragile. I can't wait to get to heaven where we will get a new body.
    I have a lot of older relatives now who are getting sick and some are dying and I wish I had a little more freedom that I could visit them and encourage them as I am so far away. I am going to rework my household ...

  2. My contractor is sick

    My contractor is sick so House number 3 is not even close to being done, I was hoping to have it ready in Dec.. I am looking at it, on the bright side. I have more time to come up with the balance of 3-5k and I will hopefully not have to heat the house thru the dead of winter for at least another month, so that will save me money heating. Someone stole part of the furnace motor and they are checking into replacement parts verses a new furnace. This happened before I purchased it.

  4. bought a new dog

    by , 11-30-2008 at 12:03 PM
    I bought a dog for my husband for Christmas. It was about $825. That is for a full papered dog and even shipping.It is a white siberian husky -female blue eyes. We currently have a white siberian male dog with brown eyes. The mom of the new dog has the wolf facial features like my dog but isn't as fluffy. The price for a fluffy white puppy similar to my dog was 1300-1600. We have been approached a few times for stud service but I didn't feel like I had enough control, so we have turned down ...

    Well since I had to work, only one job on Wed. I came home cleaned and vegged out until about 4:am on Thanksgiving. I went to winco and bought one turkey.

I also bought a bottle of wine, an Australian wine called yellow ...
