The "I" in me....

I Live: In the great state of Texas where people don't really get around on horses like they show in the movies....we have cars yall.

I Work: at a grocery store as a cashier even though I go by waitressangel.....I was a I just sell them food they have to go home and cook themselves....unless of course they buy something from the deli.

I Talk: all day long and repeat myself often saying things I am sick of hearing myself say like....we have our roses on sale today for only $5.99 a dozen....I mean what's with the 99 cent thing anyway...why not just round it off to 6.00....oh I guess it wouldn't be as big a bargain if you charge that extra cent.....and we have our candy bars on sale 3 for guesss.......that's right 99 cents.... 

I Wish:  we could go on a vacation like we did when Eric was a little boy and we could stay a week and just relax and play in the ocean and eat sandy frenchfries and feed the birds that swoop down on us for those same fries.  Now we all have to pay bills.....

I Enjoy:  having time to myself to do whatever I feel like doing....but after a while I start to bore myself....I also have a problem deciding if I should clean all day on my day off or just chill and paint, sing or read one of those library books I keep having to renew because I haven't finished them yet.


I Look: at lottery tickets I find on the ground to see if the person who threw it away might have been in a hurry and didn't realize they actually far every one I have found this way have not been winning cards....but I never say never.....

I Find:  many friends and cool people here in Jland and hope they forgive me for being absent lately.  I still love and think about you all daily.

I Smell:  when I don't take a bath.....but I try to do that at least once a week

I Burn:  if I don't use sunscreen

I Read:  everything

I Love:  brownies

I Rode:  a cowboy to save a horse...

I Sometimes:  wonder what I would do if I didn't have to work

I Hurt:  when you hurt

I Fear:  nothing.....God will see me through and he knows how my life is suppose to be....I use to be afraid to drive and he took that fear away from me

I Hope:  today is a good day for all of you

I Break:  out when I worry.....and I hate that!

I Eat:  like a teenager

I Bathe: the cats..they hate it

I Drink:  coffee, tea and diet pepsi

Hello everyone out there!  Happy 4th of July!  I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday.  God Bless America and all my friends near and far. 

Eric is still looking for a job.  He has a part time job next door to his apartment for now, but he isn't getting enough hours.

He has his application everywhere.  So keep praying!

Mom has had her second chemo treatment and has had her head shaved as all her hair was coming out.  She is trying to keep her spirits up and those of us around her.  Keep praying/

I got new contacts and glasses, so I can see!

One of the kids at work heard about my vision dilema and just handed me a check for 200.00,  I did not want to hurt his feelings so I used the money for my eyes.

He is getting married in December and I plan on giving him a check for 200.00 as a wedding present......

Rick has been working out of town alot.  He leaves on Monday and comes home on Friday.

I miss him

We celebrated our 26th wedding anniversary on June 27, but he was out of town, so we plan on going out this weekend.

I don't know what is wrong with me,. but my back is killing me.  I think I might have pulled a few muscles lifting dog food at work.

It was hurting so bad yesterday that I could hardly move.

I had to call in I was told I would be written up for missing even though I could not move physcally to do the job.....

I go in today at 1:45.  My back is still killing me, but I can not afford to miss another day of work.

I have sick leave, but you have to give two weeks notice.....

HMMMM how the heck do you know two weeks in advance that you are going to be ill?

Any who.

For the most part we are moving along.

Thanks for your continued prayers.  Keep on praying!
