The counters, cupboards, and floor are covered.:ack: I feel so bad for him he says he is not hurt. He is still cleaning up. If I...

  11. Thanksgiving
    I've been informed my younger sister and hubby are going to mother's in TX for the holiday. DFIL passed in July, I'm not sure whether MIL wants to be here, without him, for the holiday. (So that's three less than what I'm used to.) I think instead of just family, I'll invite a couple, or...

    I have been away from the village for a few months, and I have missed you folks and the feeling of relating to people who share some of my same values and perspective. :) Our family is preparing for a pretty big shift in the coming weeks. My DH is resigning from his full time job as a delivery...
  13. Secondhand Shopping
    Its the one on Hwy 127 and is 675 miles long now. Yard sales are set up everywhere. Sadly I may miss it this year. I've had vertigo since Thursday of last week and although I'm feeling some better I'm not sure I'm up for it because of the heat. Anyone ever gotten to go?

    So over the last few days, we've had some "incidents" in our town with a couple of big thugs wandering around causing trouble. Yesterday, I caught the bugger in the act, called the authorities, grabbed the shotgun and went after one of them. Of course, when my dog barked at him, he ran off...

    :fan: Ok - so I am terrified. Walking a tightrope of having hope we will get through this, and having an anxiety attack. My mom got an Extreme DUI in Arizona about 5 months ago. She was there on vacation and was pulled over on the side of the road when a cop approached her. She was not...

    Today was the day I did my big April grocery shopping trip. I picked up my teen daughter after work and we got started. We made four stops today, BJ's Wholesale club, Aldi, a little local Italian grocery store called Alesci's and a local discounter called Marcs/Xpect. I budget $450 a month for...
