    Man, what a week. The fridge in the camper is not working. Luckily I had cleared it out and gave it a good scrub since I knew we would not be heading back up to the lake until September. That was July fourth. Nothing worse than rotted food in 106 degree weather..... I know it isn't the breaker...

    This weekend is not just going to suck a little. It's going to MEGASUCK. As most of you know, my ex-husband died in March. My girls found him. Tomorrow, finally, the family is laying his ashes to rest. This has been a pretty stressful week. I know tomorrow will be horrible for them all...

    It's been a rough week around here. Last Monday, a good friend of my family went in for a routine colonoscopy. They accidentally knicked her colon and so they rushed her to surgery to stop the bleeding. Somehow there was some type of complication in her recovery and she died on Friday. It's...

    Yesterday my son had someone come out and look at the goats and chickens. The guy ended up taking all the goats and 22 of the chickens. I can't tell you how hard it was when he carried my first kid off to the trailer. She began to cry out and her mama started throwing a fit. It took...

May not seem popular in the eyes of the masses (my parents included), but it sure gives me a sense of peace to know I can survive, even in a failing economy. Anyone else feel this way? The more I...

    Our family had a very rough day yesterday. Our 14 year old min pin Max passed away. He had been very ill with congestive heart failure and had really gone downhill in the last couple of weeks. It was extremely hard on my daughter because for her whole life he has always been here. Anyway, he...

    I really will be glad when it starts to cool down some, hopefully next month. I have a few plants that simply are not doing well with this heat, and I'm just praying they'll make it until cooler weather. Even when it rains the day before, it seems these are always wilting, and I'm beginning to...
