Just a few words to let everyone know I didn't fall off the face of the Earth. Today is the last of my days off for this month, and still the couple has not shown up, and I have way too much to do before the kids come home next month.
Today I want to bring down some books before they get ruined, some more of the dishes, the baking pans, the stereo and the printer.
The weather is getting hot and humid, and 2 of my girlfriends just lost their refrigeration because of the strain on the compressor. I just pray every night, because right now I cannot afford another bill.
Everyone should be able to retire at 62, because this old body really wants to just stay home, bake cookies, watch "True Blood", read and play with my dog. To say my get-up-and-go got up and went would be an understatement. But with so much to do, both at home and at work, I can't stop.
, I am still not dressed, so I have to get off this and get my a$$ in gear...talk to you all, later.

Mo and Billy will be coming home for a class reunion in July, and I am so excited to see them. The problem is that the couple I gave my house to still have not got me moved in and they seem to disappear every time I get a day off. The agreement was they would move me in and do some minor repair work and yard work, and I would give the house to them for just the cost of the taxes. Luckily nothing has been put down on paper, since my printer is still at the other house.
Today I went up to assess the damage at the other house, being empty so long has taken its toll. Most of my wardrobe is ruined by mold, the furniture can somewhat be salvaged, but the mattress is ruined, and mice have invaded and chewed my baskets and linens to shreds.
My next and final days off are the 24th through the 27th, and I am determined to be moved in.
Mo has a green thumb and while she is here I intend to pick her brain to landscape what I can then I can start saving to get a new hot water tank and get the furnace installed before next Winter.
