June 25, 2010

Oh My Gosh~! I am so ready for winter! Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas!! LOL! This summer has been a disaster! It all started when I went to see DD and to attend the Scrapbooking Convention in Arlington, TX in the Dallas area ! I had been looking forward to it for months! I was packing for the trip when our refrigerator started going out and Texas was having the tax free weekend over Memorial Day on "Cash for Clunkers" on appliances. We bought the new refrigerator which I have yet to see! I went to see DD and on the way to Dallas at 4:00 a.m. on June 3rd I decided to wreck my car and total it out! I broke a molar tooth 30 minutes later which is still not fixed! My hubby came up and we went ot my cousin's wedding in Gainesville, TX and was able to tell my Dear Uncle with pancreatic cancer goodbye! Heart wrenching! Three days later we were headed back to Gainesville for his funeral. While in Gainesville my computer crashed and is still not repaired. I came back to DD's apartment and DH called to let me know that our new air conditioning unit purchased 2 years ago to the tune of $8,000 had gone out. Three hundred dollars later for labor and mileage it is repaired with the part costing fivc hundred dollars but covered under warranty. Geez! When it rains it pours!! I keep telling myself, "It is only money!!"
Needless to say without a computer my scrapping and posting have come to a screeching halt! I am currently at DD's apartment with only my Copic markers, some stamps, and a borrowed computer to keep me happy! I am grandpuppy sitting with my grandpuppies while DD goes rafting on the Illinois River! She is having a bachlorlette party this weekend. I will head home on Sunday only to return the following Thursday and help with the wedding on July 3rd. Off to Tulsa to see me Darling Niece, husband and three boys. Then back home on the 5th and head for the cabin in southern Colorado until the end of October maybe early November. I hope to get in some much needed fly fishin' and then back home for Thanksgiving and Christmas! Like I said, "Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas! Whew!
I thought things slowed down once your children were grown but Wowzer things speed up even more!
What else can I say other than if money can fix it then it isn't really important! Life is good! We are all safe, happy, and in good health. I wish and pray the same for everyone else out there!~
I hope everyone has a fabulous day!!


  1. And I though I had a bad month...Geesh! I may not have been feeling well...but I sure had not been though ALL this either!!

    Hoping you are on the road to brighter days! I miss keeping in touch, so I hope you'll have your computer back soon!


  2. Oh Lisa you made me dizzy reading all that has gone haywire for you. Glad the accident was not more devastating and look at it this got all the bad stuff out of the way and the rest of your summer will be smooth sailing!! Good luck and happy wedding planning!
