Good Morning my Lovely

Our LazBoy guy was supposed to come between 10 and 12 yesterday, so around 9:30 I picked up my book and iPhone and coffee and started to go out onto the porch to wait for him.  Then the phone rang ~~ he was working two houses down from us, on the other side of Barbara's house and could he come early?  You bet!   By 5 after 10, he was done and gone!   While LazBoy guarantees the parts for life, it was still rather expensive.  They charge a Trip Charge plus labor (Suuure, you get the parts for free.  Ha!), but given that the chair is in great shape otherwise and what it would cost to replace it, I think it was worth it and now I have "my" chair back.  I'd been using Mikes but I don't like it as well ~ and he doesn't like mine as well.  That works.  Ha.

Our temperature reached 100 degrees yesterday!   No wind and no rain.  Actually rather pleasant, though I wouldn't have wanted to do a lot outside.    Just after dinner, we got a Code Red Alert on the phone warning of severe weather and suggesting we find protection.  Ping Pong Sized Hail predicted!   Shortly after that, the wind kicked up and you could watch the big trees in the older neighborhood behind us really whipping up, then the rain started, hard, and then the lightening ~~ at which time I closed the shades!     I don't think we got any hail thank goodness, and the rain stopped after maybe half an hour.    We went to bed to watch TV after 10 and I fell asleep.   When I woke up, Mike said it had rained hard "while you were gone".  LOL   

Lou Ann, what a day you had!  It sounds fabulous with good friends, great food and BABIES!   How precious they all are.  Decades from now they will all have that picture of the three cousins and cherish it.

I saw the two pictures you posted on Facebook yesterday, and it made my face smile knowing you were having baby time.  You have the most beautiful smile ~ have I told you that before?

Oh my lord, those cupcakes look amazing!  I want one!   I always want one of Louann's salads.    Your friends are all such fabulous cooks.

OOOOH, and another present, just for me!  I LOVE it!  Thank you!!!

My mystery gift: Barb in the other group guessed a Mood Ring, but Mike said No.  Shiela guessed a Disco Dress, which really cracked us up.    You have no idea how he hates Disco ~ it's actually funny.   I remember being in the Outback for dinner a long time ago and they were playing Disco Music and Mike was making Snarky comments.  Then the sound went off, sort of like if you were playing an old record and you lost power.  It just sort of slowed down and then stopped.  A disembodied voice called out "Disco's Dead!" and we both about lost it!   LOL  (I, on the other hand have always liked Disco Music.  I just like teasing Mike about it even more.  Ha)

This is even worse because he so far HASN'T found just what he was looking for and he won't tell me what it is, so I won't find out on my birthday!   Aarrgghh!  He did make me another chocolate soda last night.  The boy's really getting the hang of it.  I'd better stop having them after my birthday or I'm going to be even fatter than i am!   Soooo good, they are.

I will tell him that you are willing to take him.  It will make his day.  He already considers you an ally.  

Have a Terrific Tuesday!

HELLO MY PRETTY

LOL, I actually thought of a mood ring, but thought...no he has more taste than that and you can find them new.  I have never seen them in a classy setting. Did you ask him if it was a swatch? Oh no, do not tell my ally that I like disco music too. They have catchy beats. Bangle bracelets were big too!! Maybe it is a disco ball necklace, hee hee. I just do not know what it is.

We have a drive-in called Gilles and they have ice cream sodas. But, sadly, sometimes it is good and sometimes it is nor.  I love their raspberry soda...when it is good.  Sometimes there is not enough carbonation, other times not enough raspberries and flavor. But when it is right, it is to die for.  

I did not do much today...I went to bed late last night and slept till about 10 am. I felt off all day being so late to get up. I had cherries and juice for breakfast, corn dogs for lunch and the other half of my stuffed pepper from last night with green beans. I also had a bowl of chocolate ice cream with marshmallow creme on it, but the ice cream melted so fast it was like having marshmallows in chocolate milk. Not as enjoyable as when it is cold solid ice cream. Tomorrow I plan on getting up and doing dishes. There are not many. Then am going to work on some little things in my room and hope that Josh comes by. I want to get my room done so I can relax. I am going to be antsy until then. 

So anyway, here is another present for you.  Yesterdays was Challenge one, making a tag with one of Fi's tuts.  Challenge 2 was to make and old style tag, meaning no scraps!! There is a pass on this week for challenges, so no deadlines this week, that is why it is perfect for cleaning and working on my afghan.

Have a wonderful Wednesday!

Hugs,

Hello.  Happy Hump Day   

Yesterday was terrible.  I don't know what I did, but I managed somehow to whack my back  in a way I've never done before.   From the night before last until this morning, I had the worst backache I've ever had.  I do get a lot of back pain doing normal things, but if I sit for 5 minutes it goes  away.  This was unrelenting.   I did almost nothing all day but sit and pop advil and aspirin and part of the time use a heating pad.  Walking was agony.    This morning it's better, thank God.  Still hurts, but tolerable.  I feel like I missed yesterday altogether.  I don't plan to do a whole lot today other than try to let it heal.   Sheesh!

The President is in town right now, doing fundraisers of course.  Sad thing is that he is fundraising for the Senate candidate I will NOT be voting for, and the taxpayers (a.k.a. ME) have to pay for it.   grumble>  

It was another really hot one yesterday, but by the time Mike put the dogs on the grill and I joined him on the deck for a while, it was lovely.  Warm but not too hot, and no wind or rain.  Everything really greened up after the hard rains the night before.     Today the lawn service is coming to spray the trees and bushes so the shut the sprinkler system off.  I hope they turn it back on for us.  They have it running so late at night and early in the morning that we don't see it run, so it's hard to be sure

smiley15

Lou Ann, Mike likes Malts as much as I do Chocolate Sodas so last year for his birthday I got him a Malt Maker.  Several years ago I ordered frozen malts from his family's (and now my) favorite Ice cream store in Davenport Ia, Whiteys.  I got all sorts of flavors he had mentioned including Root beer (which didn't sound good at all to me).  Well, they were all good and I now see the attraction of Malts, but I particularly liked the Root Beer Malt.  Who'da thunk?    Anyway, he found some Root beer syrup, and last night he made Root beer malts!   Seriously yummy!   

Has your mom already left?   I wasn't sure when the 3AM departure was, but it sounds like you are on your own, and it sounds like so far, so good.   I hope you can get some things done today because I know that feeling of accomplishment is so good, and I hope you can watch some programs you don't normally get to see, too.   Have some fun!

Oooh, another lovely present, for ME!   Thank you!


Tee Hee ~ Mike is going to drive me crazy with whatever it is he is looking for until he finds  it or gives up and can just tell me what it is!  

I keep pointing out that my BIG birthday was LAST year, and this is a no-biggie, but he is having too much fun looking for  things.   Yesterday he emailed me a list of cakes I am to choose from, and I have to choose soon so he can order one.   Oooh, MY, do they look amazing!   I'll post their pictures so you can see.

OMG, Dorothy, how will you ever decide on a cake?  After seeing and reading about them....I want all of them.  Let me see if I can narrow it down, lol.  

 Carrot Caramel Delight Cake

7 Layer Praline Cake
 
7 Layer Caramel Cake

Ok, these are my top 3 in the order that I would choose them.
Where does he find these wonderful cakes that you can order?
I may have to get that top one someday or my life will never be complete, lol.

I have never been a big fan of malts...but mostly because I never had them.  Then I went to several different 50's themed restaurants and had the malts where they bring the metal container to the table and poor your malt and leave the extra for you.  I have only ever had chocolate, but loved it.  After all, I love malted milk balls.  I aslo have only had the raspberry soda.  I am thinking I had strawberry first and it was good, but after having the raspberry that i always get that when I go to Gilles.  I have not been there this year yet.

Ooh, I am feeling your pain.  Today when I was making myself taco salad for supper my back was killing me. And it took longer to go when I sat down.  I do not think I could take 24 hours of that pain.  I do not know how you dealt with it.  The only pain med I can take is acetaminophen.  Come to think of it...how can you take Advil and aspirin with warfarin...both are no no's.  Better watch it, they act as blood thinners too!!  Hope you are not due for a check right now.

I got nothing done today other than the kitchen clean up.  Josh did not show up as I was hoping.  Half the time he does not get my texts so he says to call him.  Well I did and he did not answer.  So I left a message for him to call me. I am losing valuable time.  He usually comes every Wed and takes our trash bins to the curb, he did not come.  I think he is avoiding me, lol.  If he does not want to give me a couple hours he does not have to.  I will ask Jordan, he is doing nothing....but I would rather work with Josh.  Jordan drives me crazy and I do not trust him any more.

Well, time to do something else, lol.
Have a thoroughly delightful Thursday.
Hugs,

Good Morning!

I'm so irritated.   Yesterday morning when I got up I thought my back was 'healed', but as the day went on, the pain returned with a vengeance.   Getting up to go to the bathroom during the night I could barely walk for the pain.  I got up at 6 and came here into the morning room and sat up and put a heating pad on and it feels somewhat better.  I thought I had backaches before ~ I had no idea!   It's gonna get better ~ or I'm gonna go bonkers.

Ok.  Whine over.  It's going to be another hot one with maybe rain later ~ or maybe not.  Their predictions are soooo accurate.  Ha.

Don't those cakes all look absolutely decadent?!  I'm not sure how I am ever going to decide.

In retirement, Mike has become a professional shopper ~ LOL   I don't know where he finds all the things he does, but they are usually pretty good.   I think I told you we've been having Steak Dogs on the grill.  That's something else that Mike found and had shipped to us frozen, and  you can not believe how good they are.  Too long for the buns, of course (grrrr), but I could eat them without the buns and enjoy them if I EVER get back to eating low carb.

I was the same way about Malts.  The few times I'd had a sip, well, the sure weren't chocolate sodas!   Then I tried a few sips of Mike's frozen Whitey's malts and my interest was definitely peaked.  Now when we go to Red Robin and he orders a malt, I definitely takea bit and enjoy it!     I did love malted milk balls, too, so it's funny I didn't care about malts.

I shouldn't take aspirin with warfarin very often, but my numbers have been quite low, and frankly getting rid of the pain supersedes all other issues!  The aspirin doesn't effect the INR numbers, but of course two different kinds of blood thinners is not a good idea.  Got any morphine?!  Ha.

Getting the kitchen cleaned up is still a lot.   I hope Josh comes over and soon!

Have a Tremendous Thursday  and I'll take my thoroughly delightful one!

I AM GOING TO SKIP A BORDER AS I AM RUNNING LATE AND WANT TO BE 

IN BED WITHIN HALF AN HOUR.  JOSH FINALLY GOT BACK TO ME TODAY 

AND HE IS COMING SOME TIME TOMORROW.  HE IS BRINGING HIS

 GIRLFRIEND WITH HIM AS HE SAYS IT WILL NOT TAKE LONG.

  OBVIOUSLY HE HAS NOT SEEN MY ROOM IN QUITE SOME TIME.  HE IS 

IN FOR A RUDE AWAKENING.  SERVES HIM RIGHT FOR AVOIDING ME.  

YOU KNOW I PROBABLY DO HAVE SOME MORPHINE PACKED AWAY IN MY

 BEDROOM.  BUT IT IS QUITE OLD.  PROBABLY FROM 2007, WHEN WE 

WERE TRYING TO FIND SOMETHING THAT WORKED ON MY BACK PAIN.  

I HAD SEVERAL DIFFERENT KINDS AND STRENGTHS.  I HAVE 

RESEARCHED HOLONG THE SHELF LIFE OF MEDS ARE BECAUSE THEY

 ALWAYS PUT A ONE YEAR EXPIRATION ON THEM.  WHAT I HAVE FOUND

 IS THAT NOT A LOT OD MEDS HAVE BEEN TESTED FOR HOW LONG THEY

 ARE GOOD FOR, BECAUSE THEY JUST SLAP ON THE ONE YEAR AND WANT

 YOU TO BUY THEM AGAIN.  BUT, THOSE THAT HAVE BEEN TESTED WERE

 GOOD FOR 1O OR MORE YEARS BUT THAT WAS AS FAR AS THEY HAD 

GONE.   SUZANNE HAS BEEN CLEANING US OUT OF PAIN MEDS.  FIRST

IT WAS TRAVIS AND HIS COUGHING MADE HIS BACK HURT SO BAD.  HE

 WAS MAD BECAUSE THE ONLY THING WE HAD WAS TYLENOL

 WITH CODEINE.  THERE WERE 7 AND I SAID RETURN ANYTHING THAT IS

 LEFT.  A COUPLE DAYS LATER SHE IS TEXTING ME AGAIN ASKING FOR

 PAIN MEDS...JORDAN HAS AN ABSCESS AND NOT DENTAL INS. AND SHE

 CANNOT GET HIM IN TO THE DOCTOR TILL THE NEXT DAY.  I TOLD HER

 WE HAD NONE.  BUT SHE CAME OVER ANYWAY.  SAID SHE WAS SURE

 THERE WAS SOMETHING THAT SHE HAD GIVEN MOM AND WENT

 THROUGH ALL HER MEDS.  THEN SAID SHE MUST HAVE TURNED IT IN AT

 THE DRUG DISPOSAL.  I SAID WE HAVE NEVER DONE THAT AND THERE

 ARE OLD MEDS IN BAGS IN THE LOWER CUPBOARD.  SHE CAME BACK

 WITH TRAMADOL A NON NARCOTIC PAIN MED.  THE DOCTOR PUT HIM ON

 ANTIBIOTIC AND 800 MG OF IBUPROFEN.  THEY SEEMED DISAPPOINTED 

AND THEY DID NOT RETURN THE TRAMADOL.  I WILL TELL MOM ABOUT 

IT WHEN SHE GETS HOME AS IT WAS HERS.

WELL, AM CALLING IT A NIGHT.  HOPE THAT YOU SLEEP WELL.

HUGS,

Hey there, Cat Lady.   It's FRIDAY!   We made it through another week.  Barely.

My back is still whacked, but I'll try not to whine ~ too much.  I got up at 5:30 and moved to the Morning Room with my Laptop and Heating Pad  This is really getting old.  Too bad Colorado didn't legalize morphine!!  If we were closer I'd try to buy yours!   Naw, I probably wouldn't ~ but I'd sure be tempted.

 It's also old that I'm up so early and trying to post while Shogun is sharing my lap with my laptop, and he's purring up a storm and making bread, while I try to type without losing my laptop.   Am I having fun, yet?    Now he's snuggled up sleeping on one leg while the Laptop occupies the other.  No wonder I'm having a back problem!

smiley74

We're heading for a high of 91 with only a slight chance of rain and no wind.  Lawn mowers come today, too. 

 I just started another Louise Penny Inspector Gamache book, The Beautiful Mystery.  I have been deliberately holding off on reading them all back to back to make this wonderful series last longer.   Of course as fast as I have been reading lately, I really don't need to TRY to make a series last longer.  Ha!

I hope Josh can get everything you want done today.  Does his girlfriend help, or do you just have to entertain her?  Does it make you uncomfortable for her to see all your stuff?

smiley16

The Mystery Gift plot thickens!   Mike apparently has something for me and the Mystery Gift is something to go with it, or to compliment it.   I still haven't the slightest clue about what either thing could be!   He's going to drive me crazy-er!    Mike and his "Themes"!   LOL

Have a Fabulous Friday.

Hello.   Welcome to the weekend.

Here I am with Shogun on one leg and my laptop on the other ad trying to type.  'Tain't easy, I can tell you!

My back seems better today.  I have the heating pad on to encourage it in that direction.     I'm really hoping this passes soon so I can do something other than sitting quietly and whimpering.  It looks like a nice day with the high in the mid 80s, and a good chance of rain.  They mowed the lawn yesterday and then spread something (weed killer?  fertilizer?  darned if I know), so a nice soaking rain can only be good.   

 Mike is kicking my birthday week off early and we're having Peach Pie for Breakfast!  I don't have to tell you that my face is smiling, do I?

I'm glad Josh came, and it sounds like he wore you out which is probably good cuz it means you got a lot done!   Hope you slept well!

I'm going to cut this short.  It is SO uncomfortable typing over Shogun!  LOL     Have a Swell Saturday!

 Hello Dorothy
Yes Josh came and I just wish he would listen.  It was a bigger job than he 
thought it was, which is what I told him.  And of course he is in a hurry with
his girlfriend sitting in the livingroom. So I explained in detail what I wanted
him to do.  Did he do that?  No.  He brought a lot out and then said what else 
do you want done.  So I went it the room and a lot was there yet.  So I pointed
out what needed to be done yet.  But then he just started piling things on my
bed (that I do not use( and on the other side of the room,  I made him 
rearrange the living room boxes to how I told him to do it to begin with.  Then
I let him go as it was going on 2 and they had not had lunch yet.  It was a huge
mess.  So then later in the evening I texted Suz.  Asked her if she could help me
for a while today and that way work off the $20 she owed me.  She said yes
right away which surprised me.  I later realized that she did not have the $20 
to pay back.  I asked her to come tomorrow and I would pay her and she 
said..I will have to talk to Jerry and see if he made any plans for us.  She 
could have called him....but I recognize stalling tactics.  I expect not to hear
from her.  Stupid Jordan now had the septum of his nose pierced and now
got an interview Mon. for a job.  So he borrowed $6 to get the kind of nose ring that turns up into the nose and cannot be seen.  I told him he could work it off moving boxes.  Then Suz borrowed $6 before leaving to rent a couple movies.  I am just 
a big sucker.  She did get all the shelving cleared and washed.  Most of it is in 
bins and going to the church rummage sale.  2 bins full of books.  My room 
looks worse then ever.  Bins and boxes in the middle of the room and tons in
the living room.  I do not think I am going about this in the right way. In one corner 
of my room there are the bins and boxes that are going...but taking up too much
space.  I should have the ones that are going in the living room along the 
radiator and things I am keeping in the bedroom.  I look at it all and I feel so
overwhelmed.  It is depressing.
I have not started the afghan yet either.  And it needs to be done by Aug 6.
But with having to make my own meals and clean up and trying to do my
bedroom and my computer stuff. I just do not have the time needed.  If I had
gotten and earlier start...but now I fear that I will not get it done before mom
comes home.  We will see.  Jordans job is going to be to switch the bins around.
The church sale is in August so they will not be in there that long.  Some things are going back on the shelves to be sorted later when I have more time.  A little
prayer would not hurt right now, lol.
I am praying your back rights itself soon so that you can be pain free.  Have
you considered going to a chiropractor?  I have never been but my friends
swear by it.
I am going to bed early tonight.
Have a Blessed Sunday and a pain free one.
Hugs,

Good Morning.

He's baa-ack.  There's a cat on one knee and a Laptop on the other.  help.

Yesterday was a nice day temperature wise, but rain had been predicted all day.  When did we get it?  Minutes before we were going to go outside and have a drink on the deck.    Literally!  Then once the deck and furniture were wet, it stopped and never started again.  That's just the kind of day yesterday was.  Phooey on it!  We decided to have a drink and a visit in the Library instead ~ so there!  

Barbara leaves for a Mission in Niger this morning.  She'll be gone until Sept 11th.  If you think about her from time to time, say a prayer for her to stay healthy and do good work ~ and that she doesn't see any Ebola!

Lou Ann, I'm not sure if Josh really helped you at all.  It almost sounds like he left you with a bigger mess than you had before!   This time I'm not jealous of you for having Josh. smiley80   Then Suz came to work off the $20 and added $6 to it, and it doesn't sound like she plans to work the $26 off now.   Or does she?   Or maybe she did, cleaning the shelves.  I think you need to start saying "Work first, money later."   I know they do so much for you, so I shouldn't say anything.  I just want you to get the help you need.  You sound tired and overwhelmed.

My back started to finally feel healed last night!  Then overnight ~ not so much.  I do believe I'm finally on the mend, but just not quite there yet.  I've just sat so much my bottom feels sore too.  LOL  


Nevertheless, I am determined that . . . .

Hello Dorothy  
You are so right.  I am stressed to the max and so overwhelmed.  I over
estimated how much I could do and how long it would take.  Josh not coming till Thursday did not help.   Suz helps a lot, but kinda in slow mo.
But it matches me.  She did come over today and we tool several long 
breaks and sat with feet up watching TV.  Seems we got the most done the last hour she was here..  I considered the $20 paid off yesterday.  I started to give her $10 today and she said no.  I said, I said I would pay you and she said your said you would pay for Bella's haircut.  I did tell her that.  It is $35 and I had intended to pay it as a gift.  Bella has a long full coat and has to be so hot. but she said they could not afford it.  So I said I would pay for it.  I cannot stand the thought  of her suffering.  I am glad to know she intended to pay it back.  I did not expect that.  But she definitely owes me more time.
I do not hold much hope in finishing in time.  But I will keep plugging away.
i also need to do the afghan.  Arrgghh!!!!!!!
Hugs,

Good Morning

I'm running late this morning ~ so I'll try not to talk so much.      We are planning to go to a new-to-us restaurant, Brooks, for dinner tonight.  It's a looong way away from our house, but it does sound good.   Though we're going early, we may have to set the VCR or DVR up to tape, because tonight is one of our favorite TV viewing nights.

Last night we did take a drink and go out on the deck to enjoy it before Mike was to build a fire and grill our burgers.   After maybe 10 minutes, it started to rain, great big drops and chased us back inside!  We went into the library to finish our drinks and conversation and by the time we came back the rain was over and the deck almost dry.  It must have just rained enough to chase us inside!   Mike used the Pampered Chef grill pan instead. 

I know you want to get everything done before your mom gets home, and that puts more stress on you.   I really hope you can do it by then, but if it isn't all done, at least a lot will have been done, so it will be good.

I'm glad Suz really is conscientious about paying you back with her time.  It matters, and frankly my dear, me thinks you would be easy to take advantage of. smiley80   

Don't make yourself sick overdoing and worrying!

Have a great Monday!

ONCE AGAIN I AM RUNNING LATE AND WANTING TO GET TO BED.

YOU WILL HAVE TO TELL ME ALL ABOUT THE NEW RESTAURANT AND

WHAT YOU THOUGHT OF IT.  THAT DARN RAIN KEEPS INTERFERING 

IN YOUR COOKING OUT.  DARNED OLD RAIN.

I DID GET TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF AGAIN TODAY.

SUZANNE CAME OVER AFTER SUPPER TO HELP AGAIN.  I THINK WE

REALLY PUT A DENT IN IT TONIGHT.  I HAD DONE SOME EARLIER, TOO.

SO WHILE WE ARE WORKING SHE GETS A CALL FROM JORDAN.  HE IS

RUNNING OUT OF GAS.  SHE SAYS LET ME SEE WHAT I CAN WORK OUT.

SO SHE TELLS ME AND I SAID, I HAVE SOME MONEY YET YOU CAN

BORROW TO PUT GAS IN THE CAR.   WE CONTINUED TO WORK AND

SHE SAID JORDAN CAN MOVE ALL THESE BOXES FOR YOU.  I SAID

YES, THAT HE DOES OWE ME $4 YET.  WE GO OUT TO TAKE A 

BREAK AND JORDAN SHOWS UP LOOKING FOR MONEY.  I SAID WHAT

DO YOU NEED TO SUZANNE AND SHE SAID DO YOU HAVE $20?  I SAID 

YES AND JORDAN TOOK IT AND THANKED ME.  THEN SUZ SAID TO

JORDAN....YOU WILL HAVE A LOT OF WORKING OFF TO DO TO PAY 

OFF ALL THIS MONEY.  WHAT??  I THOUGHT I WAS LENDING IT TO

HER AND SHE MADE IT THAT I WAS LENDING IT TO JORDAN AND HE

COULD WORK IT OFF.  HELL'S FIRE!!  SHE HAS FILLED ME IN ON SO

MANY THINGS JORDAN HAS DONE THAT SHE NEVER TOLD US THAT

I DO NOT TRUST HIM ANY MORE.  I WILL HAVE TO WATCH HIM!!

PLUS I CAUGHT HER IS A LIE.  WHEN SHE LEFT SAT SHE BORROWED

$6 TO GET A COUPLE OF MOVIES AS THEY HAD NOT MONEY LEFT.

THIS AFTER JUST GETTING PAID FRI.  SO THEN TONIGHT SHE IS

TELLING ME THAT THEY TRIED TO NEW PIZZA PLACE AND IT IS PRETTY

GOOD.  I ASKED WHERE IS THAT.  SHE SAID IT IS ATTACHED TO 

FAMILY VIDEO.  THEY WENT SUN NIGHT AFTER THEY LEFT HERE TO

GET A MOVIE AND BOUGHT AN EXTRA LGE AND A LGE PIZZA.  I SAID

WHAT?  I THOUGHT YOU DID NOT HAVE ANY MONEY?  WELL, SHE SAID

JERRY HAD SOME.  SO I SAID...JERRY SAT HERE SAT. AFTERNOON AND

SAID HE HAD NOT MONEY EITHER AND YOU SAID YOU GAVE HIM THE

LAST OF THE MONEY YOU HAD SO HE COULD GET SOMETHING TO EAT.

ALSO SHE TOLD ME SHE WENT TO PLAY BINGO WITH A SISTER IN LAW

THE OTHER NIGHT AND SHE SPENT ABOUT $28 AND THEN TELLS ME 

SHE IS GOING TO THE FAIR FRI. NIGHT WITH SOME OLD FRIENDS.

I AM NOT SURE WHAT IT COST TO GET IN NOW A DAYS BUT IT IS NOT 

REAL CHEAP.  AND HOW MUCH WILL SHE SPEND ON DRINKS AND FOOD?

BUT THEY CANNOT AFFORD TO GET BELLA TRIMMED AND CLIPPED.  IF

SHE SKIPPED BINGO AND THE FAIR SHE COULD HAVE PAID FOR HER

CARE.  I AM SO ANGRY...BUT I AM DEPENDENT ON HER SO I CANNOT

SAY MUCH.  SO THANKS FOR LETTING ME BITCH HERE.

OK, I REALLY NEED TO GO.  CHAT WITH YOU TOMORROW.

HUGS,
