Looking for a Job!

Hubby has informed me that with so many people living in the house and only 2 incomes coming in, I have to find a JOB! So, I went out today and filled out a couple of applications. Hope to hear something from either one soon.

This and That

I got my new skirt yesterday, and immediatly put it on. It is very comfortable and covers very well, and I wear between a size 16 and 18! And is it long! Needless to say, I may buy some more.

I have finally been able to get dishes done since my sinks drained.

I got up early this morning to put some beans on to soak for 8 hours so I can cook them for dinner tonight, along with some corn muffins, and smoked sausage.

Changed the template on the blog back to the original one, I seem to like it best, and since I can;t figure out how to put anything else up as a background/wallpaper, this will have to do.

I colored my hair on Sunday afternoon, it looks better than it did. Then I got it cut yesterday, afternoon. It was so uneven, that I had to do something with it. I was trying to let it grow out, but it was getting in my face, and it really was not long enough to do anything with it, so I just got it cut. It may take a couple more cuts to get it all one length, then I may try to grow it out.

O.K. sinks are unclogged. Yeahh!!

I have downloaded a different wallpaper, but can't figure out how to get it to the blog. If anyone can help, it would be greatly appreciated.

Blog Design

I have changed the template again, it looks a little better, at least there is some color to it now.

Water Pipes-Part 2

I now have water, both hot and cold, but, my sinks are still clogged!

Meatless Friday

My husband likes to observe Meatless Friday's during Lent, so last night we had Chinese food. Shrimp Egg foo Young, boy I do love that stuff!!

On another note, I remembered after yesterday's post on dresses, that I will have to buy another pair of jeans sometime soon so I can go riding on the motorcycle when it gets warm enough. I can't really wear a skirt or dress on the bike, so I have to have jeans for that. We also wear motorcycle gear,( helmet,pants, jacket and gloves.) And since I love to ride, I need jeans for that.

Blog Wallpaper

Where do you ladies get your wallpaper for your background on your blogs? They are so pretty. I would like to pretty up my blog some.

Water Pipes

Well, I have hot water. No cold yet. But now my sink is stopped up, and I have NO drain cleaner. UGH!!


Now, if only I can figure out how to do a different background and a left sidebar, I will be in good shape.


I think I have it figured out. Take a look!

Modest Dress

I have been reading a lot posts by women who dress modestly:e.g., skirts, dresses, NO PANTS. That sort of thing. I like what they are saying, and why they do it. I too have felt the Lord convicting me to dress more modestly lately, and right now I am wearing a wrap skirt that I bought last year from Vermont Country Store. It does not cover as well as I would like for it to, but it will do for now. I have ordered a wrap skirt from a Jewish site called, I am just waiting for it to come so I can try it and see how well it will fit.

I did have 1 pair of jeans that I was wearing quite often, but I got them caught on a nail and they pulled in the back, so they don't look very nice now, so I will not wear them and I refuse to buy anymore, mostly because they so expensive now, and I just can't find any that fit right anymore. I am fluctuating anywhere from size 16 to 20. The afore mentioned jeans were a size 20, and since I have lost about 10 pounds they are just a bit big. And, since my Doctor kindly informed me that I was to short for my weight, I need to lose about another 40 pounds. I am 5'5" and should only weigh about 125 to 130, I am at 187. NOT GOOD!! I am trying. I chase after the granddaughter.

Anyway, what I am tying to say, is that I like dressing modestly. It is a lot more comfortable!


Everyone is finally over being sick!! Yeah!!!

My son started school on Monday, and is enjoying it so far. He is going to Vatterott College here in K.C. for computer technology, I think.

We had some pretty nasty weather come in night before last and into yesterday, and I had to go out in it, that was not fun at all. I had to take my car into the dealership to have my ABS fixed, and they also found that my two front tie-rods needed to be replaced. So all that got done.

My water pipes in my kitchen are frozen, so right now I have no water in my kitchen sink and cannot do any dishes until they thaw out.

I forgot that I was supposed to go pay our vehicle insurance today, and I let my husband take the car to work. Oh well, maybe we can do that tomorrow.

I wish I knew how to jazz up this blog, you know different background, how to do the sidebars, that sort of thing. Can anyone help me with that?

Oh, I forgot, Hubby found out night before last, that his daughter in Omaha is expecting a baby. She figures that she is due in September. We are thrilled and shocked, as her husband had been told that he could not have children.

Feeling Better

Everyone seems to be feeling better today, which is very good, indeed!

We had rain yesterday, then snow last night, and I have to take my step-daughter to a Doctor's appointment this afternoon. She wanted to re-schedule because of the weather, but since she went to the emergency room Monday night, they want her to go ahead and come in today. This is going to be fun! NOT!!

We have all been sick for the past 24 hours. I don't know if it is a stomach virus, or food poisoning, or a combination of the 2, I just know everyone has been throwing up, now some of us have body aches. Who knows! My step-daughter had to go to the hospital last night because she was dehydrated. When I picked hubby up from work, he was not feeling good, and I didn't even get on the freeway and had to pull over so he could throw-up. He is starting to feel a little better now, and the step-daughter is feeling a-lot better than she was. I did ask her if the Doctor's checked on the baby, and she said they did, and that he was o.k. That was a big relief.
We hopefully will all be alright by tomorrow.
