This and That

The old washer had to be replaced. I went out and bought a new one on Saturday. I just couldn't stand to have another used washer come in only to not work. Unfortunatley the man friend that I let come back into my life messed up my drain hose for the washer and the electrical plug. Grrrrr. Can't believe that he is so stupid to pull it straight out of the ground and to pull the plug so hard that the box came off of the wall. Oh well we live and learn.

I've been sick. Missed work on Monday and that throws me behind at work. Had the ole stomach bug I guess. My troubles when I get the ole stomach bug is that I get so violently ill. I shake uncontrollably with chills and then the hot flashes. Terrible experience. While I was so ill my mom called this so called friend thinking he cared enough to see about me and guess what - he came over all right and acted like a fool - so angry at being there. I told him to get out and stay out - never come back again. I really don't need a man. I will hire someone to do what I need.

My veggie area was plowed yesterday. I have a lot of work laid out for me. I will be planting the vegatable garden in about 2-3 weeks. Haven't finalized my list of veggies to plant yet.

What to do about the squirrels messing with my flower pot containers. I think they are still looking for nuts they hid in the fall and winter. I heard that red pepper flakes may deter them - I'll try this. Any other ideas?

We are getting some rain showers today. Nice light rain the kind that does the plants some good without knocking them over. The weekend is calling for temps of 70 and sunny. Yea!

I can't believe that my oldest and still my 'baby girl' will be 37 tomorrow. Happy Birthday - April. She is off enjoying their annual 'family' vacation up in the mountains of Tennessee.

That enough of my rantings. I'll be around as I can this week to visit you all.

Have a great day and hope you are having some nice weather.

Sorry you've been sick Becca and hope you're soon feeling better.

I bet you're excited about your veggie garden. Pretty soon you'll be enjoying eating from it.

Happy birthday to your daughter.

You have not had very good luck with men. That makes me sick, even for someone of my persuasion! Sorry to hear that. If I were your neighbor, I'd do all those things as a favor! But you'd have to help me with a flower garden! Hope you get all fixed with the washer and have a great week. Great weather for our weekend, too!

Men! You sounds about as happy with them as I do. Two idiots in one week is just two too many. LOL! Glad you got a washer though. So sorry you got the flu.It is starting around again I heard at the doctors last week. Get better Becca so you can go out and play in the dirt.

I hope you are feeling better by now, Becca. I have heard of the red pepper flakes for squirrels too, but I don't know if they work or not. Glad to hear you got your new washer. I hate when something goes wrong with appliances. Really is a big inconvenience to not have them available.
