for the love of PETE!


Girls, I have been living in my car for the last 5 days and I am just about ready to move the pillows and blankets in there. That would be one way to get some sleep.
My Gosh, the "child" the only one left Thank Goodness has had me running here and there, yonder and back. Now it is 17 miles to town and 17 miles back. so guess how many times I have had to fill up the car? If someone guess right I will give them a e-pattern. How about that?
Gas is about $2.18 here for reg. unleaded. I can't use that of course so it costs me about 2.30 a gallon.
DD decided that since it is her senior year she wanted to play sports. So golf it is. The other sports that were available cost 500.00 in equipment so that was out of our budget sadly. But they can't have it, do it all ya know.
Thanks to a friend for hunting for me, I got the clubs at a steal, bought the balls and t's yesterday. Along with her meds and physical. Oh let us not forget the bee sting kits- yes very important but grand total for yesterday was about 300.00 bucks and that was before lunch and gas.. LOL In the tank girls. No naughty thinking aloud. LOL

Now I know that I said I would show some goodies, but I have surprised their new owners so I must wait a few more days before they arrive as I know she sneaks on here once in a while.
I have WIPs on the table and working like a mad woman when I am not driving.
Hope to show them soon.
So beside the running for DD I was also going to the bank here for my mom. She said to pick up a check for her. Well I have been to the bank since Sunday everyday. I called to let her know that it still was not here. LOW and behold it wasn't a check but a money gram. GOod lord now I feel stupid for getting tickie with the gal on the other side of the counter. So tomorrow- you guessed it, I have to go back to town. UGH get that and then run a few more errands. I wanted and needed to stay home. I may have to skip church this weekend and just stay home and work. That might be nice to sleep in too. I have witnesses I have been getting up early. Okay anything before 11 is early for me. But early like in 8:30 or 9 am. That is something for me to brag about since I am a night owl. I have been known to stay up till 7 am and then sleep for 5 hours and get up and do it again.
Alright then off and running. I am actually yawning and running out of steam. Will have to hit the hat soon but need another coat of paint on something first.
Have a wonderful day.
Hugs,Pea

P.S. my girl friend Kris took this picture of a local town last fall. Pretty huh?
It is cold here and snowed so I thought we could use a little sunshine. Enjoy.
